    I do have another question on finishing>

    Our 5 pigs are about 200#'s and we plan to butcher soon. We are now feeding them with finisher, spent grain (about 50/50) as well as dairy. I don't get a huge amount of dairy. The local grocery store fills up the Rubbermaid tote that I give them about once every 1 to 2 weeks (the tote is the 18 gal. size).

    Should I stop the dairy now? Is there pros and cons to feeding them dairy up until the end?

    We are pretty new at this and I am not sure how to finish these guys up!

    It should not be a problem continuing with the same feeding using the dairy.
