Management Tips

FEEDING TIPS:
 

  • Reconstituted, acidified formula remains fresh up to 24 hours due to acids and preservatives.
  • Adjust quantities according to appetite.
  • Avoid overfeeding to reduce risk of scours.
  • Wean pigs at 10 to 12 pounds of body weight.
  • Ensure adequate feeder space for all pigs in group.
  • For orphan and surplus pigs, raise in groups of eight to 10 pigs for best results.
  • Hygiene is important. Keep feeding equipment clean.

GENERAL TIPS:
 

  1. To be successful, pigs should receive colostrum from the sow for the first 12 hours after birth. Cow colostrum may be used when sow colostrum is unavailable.
  2. The pen should be clean, dry, warm and free of draft. (About 90° to 92° F the first three days of age.)
  3. Provide fresh, clean water at all times.
  4. Begin offering Hubbard FIRST COURSE® Early-Weaning Prestarter at five to seven days of age.
  5. Disinfect navels at birth and inject with iron before third day.
