We have 85 days til our county fair online show and a gilt that is at 155 as of today. Max weight is 285 so I figure she can gain about 1.5 lbs per day to make weight. Meanwhile we are participating in online virtual shows and want to keep her looking her best. Typically I'd hold her off more now and increase her daily gain as the show approaches. I'm not sure how to approach this situation while wanting to keep her show ready. She's currently on a 20% feed and 8oz of Champion Drive per day. At the moment we have her on 4# of feed per day, 8oz of Champion Drive, and a scoop of shredded beet pulp mixed into the feed.
What do you recommend to keep her looking 'show ready' while slowing down her daily gains? She has a lot of eye appeal, depth, wide backed, good bone, all around great pig, really nothing I'd like to change just keep her looking her best.
