PostSubject: PIG STOP EATING, Pretty much completely   21st January 2013, 9:58 am

Well it has happened again. Last year was a nightmare and now this year it looks to be happening again...

Our gilt stop eating... completely... She is weighing 193 with 38 days till show... She needed to go in around 265, now Im jsut hoping she make weight at all.. (228)

She starting hand feeding 2 weeks ago and we dropped he feed protein to 165 then too...

within the last 3 days she has maybe ate a 1 1/2.... maybe..... Im looking for help... Need to get her eating.... She was wormed yesterday to see if that would help... I tried slopping her food the last few days and she doesnt seem to want to eat it wet or dry... I tried an egg on top... nope didnt want that either.... Should I switch back to the feed she was previously on 18% 7% fat? Should I try a different additive... she currently get a small dose very small of moorfat.. I even cut that out thinking it would help. She is getting a 1/2 a cup of oats to add width...

FRUSTRATED.. She is a heavier muscled pig..... BUMMED!! any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!!

1. Make sure you are not putting too much food out at a time. When you go out to feed her, clean the old food out.

2. Have you tried white or yellow cake mix??? OMG! That stuff is great! 2 eggs, cake mix, with 2-3 cups of vegetable oil. THEY LOVE IT! AND it packs the pounds FAST. My son's York barrow did that about a week ago and we started mixing the cake mix everyday and the pig, not only got his appetite back BUT, the pig gained 23 pounds!

3. Pour a bottle of white Karo syrup over the feed. Pigs are picky eaters and if the feed has gotten wet, had flies on it, or sat in it's food bowl too long, they will not even TOUCH the feed. If, after you try this and she still isn't eating, I would talk to the local FFA instructor or local vet.

We also tried cake mix for the same reason and it worked. I just mixed it in dry with their feed and my pigs gained 20lbs in two weeks...worked wonders!
