Needing help with muscle

Post by tayrob2012 » Mon May 18, 2020 1:55 pm

I have a 170 pound barrow. Show weigh ins are 50 days away. We are shooting for him to weigh around 275-280. Feeding HSC 819. He needs some help with fat cover but I don’t want him to gain over 2lbs a day. What supplement can I add to help give him a little fat cover and make his muscles pop a little more?

For both improving muscle and fat cover it will take more than one supplement.

Probably the best way to go is to add High Octane Champion Drive at 1 lb per day, and High Octane Geavy Weight.

Start Heavy at 4 oz per day, and about every 5 to 7 days increase by 4 oz until you are feeding 12 oz per day. Mix Heavy Weight with enough water to make a milk shake like consistency then add to the feed.

If the pig build up a little grease around his head and neck don’t worry. About 14 days prior to show pull out the Heavy Weight and insert High Octane Fitter 52 at 1 lb per day.

How much 819 do you suggest feeding along with the two supplements?

4 lb per day should be plenty.
