I am not sure how much fat will be on these as I am not getting waste milk consistently now which may be a good thing so I don't have tons of fat like before we will see. people say there bigger but i cant tell it.

Thanks a few people ask me my secret cause they said the same too. I enjoy raising pigs. I guess i see them so much I can't see the difference much. I cant wait for the sausage or the bacon.

Sky, I feed 2 pigs every year. in a barn on concrete, they are on pig meal, and corn
one of them is off feed, moping around, I called the vet they asked if i changed their feed, I said I gave them some spent cauliflower tops from the garden. she said stop that could be it, nitrate poison? but i should hit them with an antibiotic in case of pneumonia.
tonight ive gotta check there temps and report to the vet.
Ive never had any trouble upto now.
Help

Bill,
I have to be careful about how much produce I feed mine because of that same reasoning. That's a very bad spot you are in. If its nitrate poisoning then I don't think there's a cause for antibiotics. The vet should be able to give you some meds for the nitrate poisoning but i think they need a sample of the blood to confirm that's what it is. There is alot of things that store nitrates and such and i have a page to put in a link. I would definitely discontinue that and stick to other feeds. I hope this helps pm me if you have any additional questions or put it in this post ill monitor it.
