Pigs losing weight, not gaining...need advice!
« on: July 18, 2013, 02:48:48 PM »
I know it's hot and we probably aren't the only ones with this problem, but our fair is in 9 days and our pigs are losing weight.  We've got 1 that is really good, but at this rate, it will not make weight.  She weighs 213 right now, and was 217 just 3 days ago.  We've tried eggs, syrup, marshmallows, milk slop, rinsing multiple times daily, and she's just not gaining.  Does anyone have ANY suggestions of anything else we can try?  Any different supplements?  I saw from an older post someone mentioned Sumo.  We're desperate!
A wise young man once told me....."It doesn't matter what your trailer looks like.  It's what comes off your trailer that counts."

Sumo is a fat product made by Sunglo feeds.   Pigs love it.   I'd get some ASAP and get the pigs eating it.  Also you may want to try to get some Paylean in the diet..  Sunglo's Explode is good.   That way they will gain more efficiently.

Sumo does work good for most people , but we have just never had any luck with it. We use Paylean and MoorBody and MoorFat .
