Would Hi mag mineral i give to the cows help?
Ill get their temp to rule out pneumonia and catch up with the vet


Your welcome I researched and it seems the only for sure help is methylene blue which i guess you get from the vet is supposed to be same you use for cows and pretty effective. I am not sure I would give them Hi Mag since a solution is pretty available. I personally would not give that to them.

I heard that a Purina feed salesman showed up at Sky's place and said to Sky I can put you on a feed program that will get your hogs to market weight 2 weeks earlier than the way your are feeding now. Sky replied what is time to a hog.

I had three sows a few years ago and if you want them to grow as you said "Gotta keep the feed in front of them". I really enjoyed raising the pigs, but a lot of work and short on time then and prices were low. A guy came and looked at them from Harlan Kentucky and I sold them all to him. I had a nice home built 3 point hitch crate for the back of my tractor that you could run/lure the hogs in and raise them off the ground and load in a trailer. I sold it also. One of these days I am going to build me another chicken house and hog house and raise some more.

I had two Hampshires and one Duroc Sow and a neighbor had a Poland China boar that I would breed them to. Those Duroc's will sure get fat, but when they got fat seems they didn't have as many pigs. The Hampshires would have a lot more pigs. I have had them to lay on them and kill them, their tail froze off when they were born in cold weather, etc. etc. a lot of work.....Those Hampshire when they had pigs could get pretty mean.

yea your right. Guy I bought pigs from had a duroc boar he was a mean dude. I may eventually keep pigs all year round but no time soon.but when if I do I will make their barn completely out of pallets like the ones I use now. I will probably only raise Yorkshires.
