When do you begin to push

(1/1)

Show Steaks:
I feel my pigs are going to be about 20#'s behind where i want them at fair, when would you start the push on them

willow:
If you are sure they are going to be light for your show (you have done the math and weighed and figured out what they are gaining/day) than I would kick them up sooner rather than later.  It is fairly easy to hold a pig (meaning little to no gain/day) it isn't always easy to push them especially if they decide they don't want to eat.  They should be gaining about 2lbs / day give or take.  How big are they now?  When is your show?  What do they have to weigh?  What are you feeding them and how much?
