All things showpig related, general show pig questions
1 post • Page 1 of 1
My daughter has a show pig that is currently at 271lbs. We have 15 days left until the last show, but he can only be at 280lbs max for that show. We have already cut his food back to 3lbs per day (1 1/2lbs per feeding) but he is still gaining weight. We dont want him to surpass the weight but we also dont want to starve him. I noticed at the county show yesterday that all the other pigs are "pleasantly plump" whereas my daughters pig is shaped like a hot dog. What can we do to keep him fed & fill out his stomach, but without gaining anymore weight??
