    Sorry to see you having problems, wish I could help. I have noticed that the only time our pigs ever had the, ah, "squirts", was when they were stressed. They never seemed to get it from the food they ate. Sounds like a job to present to a vet. Best wishes.

    How big is the feeding trough/piglet feeder? I use a six head single sided one as it gives the piglets their own space. Some piglets are more submissive and may not try to compete. I would think it would at least rule out competing for feed as an issue.

    Spread the feed about, maybe the bigger ones are keeping the others away, also, have they been wormed?
