Good day. A question. I decided to start breeding piglets. I do not want to grow, just bought sows and I want to sell young 40-60 day old. Naturally it would be desirable that by this age they look commodity, bred. What supplements, feed, and better stimulants advise? Which manufacturers and if you can, then where to buy? Thanks in advance. (Sergei)
Your question is understandable, as many farmers want their pigs to grow quickly and gain weight well. Yes, without special additives such a result is difficult to achieve. I will say right away that I do not welcome the use of hormonal and chemical drugs, so my advice will be humane. That is, I rely on natural safe and useful stimulants. I propose to read about all the rest in our article "Choosing the best for the growth of pigs: dietary supplements and stimulants."
In your case, you should choose an intensive meat-feeding program.
Its base is special feed developed for quick weight gain by piglets. There are a lot of manufacturers and they differ from region of residence. Therefore, in this case, I can not specifically suggest anything. This needs to be recognized in the nearest agrofirms in your area.
In addition to feed, piglets in the diet after switching to fattening, that is, after feeding with milk, should include more protein feed than carbohydrate. For example, a very good result gives corn, bean hay (7-11% of the diet). It is useful to give a mixture of concentrates and succulent feed. Do not interfere and waste food industry. In order for the pigs to gain muscle mass quickly, they must walk in the fresh air!
To fill the diet with proteins and amino acids, you can include meat, fish and meat and bone meal. For example, fish meal is given at the rate of 100 grams per individual. Feed yeast is an excellent stimulant that increases the weight gain by almost 16%. But do not forget the most important rule - in the first month of life, the basis of nutrition for pigs is mother's milk. Without it, it will be difficult to grow a decent pig.
