Nephews second set fair pigs...thoughts?
« on: July 07, 2013, 02:30:34 PM »
Here is year two in our county fair level attempts at Hogs.
first the big one... he weighed 290 today with 12 days to go... yikes.  Any ideas on what to do feed wise would be helpful.  My Purina guy advised us to put him on Powerfill which we are starting tomorrow when I go get it.  Any other comments will be welcomed.  I know basically nothing about raising pigs...thanks

How did the hogs do at the show?
Sorry I didn't reply earlier, I've been absent from sp for quite some time.
They look respectable to me for county fair hogs. It's evident they've been well taken care of. Ideally, they would show more muscle definition, bolder bladed, bigger hipped and not so much fill in that loin edge. Those are all things that are genetic issues for the most part. Hope you had a good fair!
As I walk through the shadow of the valley of SP, I shall fear no evil
