Hi dsmythe, Thanks for the reply. We have 5 pigs, look and act as healthy as I image a pig acting. Seem happy. My routine is to dump a loader bucket full of greens topped with about 50 lbs of wet and dripping pineapple leftovers. Once they've filled up on that, I toss about 3 coffee can's worth of Soy Bean meal (48% protein) into a feeding bin. (I just dump the greens over the fence onto the ground) I do this twice a day now and also pour about 50 gallons of water into their mud pit when it gets hot out every day. (or temps are in the 80's) The meat from our other pigs was great.. but keep in mind they were in a 10 x 30 pen and we fed them an 18% protein bagged hog food from the local elevator. We took them to the butcher at around 320 to 330 lbs. Any dissatisfaction from those pigs was butcher related.. (stole half my bacon, too much salt on the hams, bone chips, etc) We plan on butchering our own this year and I'd like to take them north of 400 pounds if I can.
