Complete Guide For Feeding Pigs
You should always provide your pigs with good quality feeds whether you raise a few pigs or numerous commercially.

Quality feeding not only helps the pigs to grow faster but also helps them to stay healthy. However, here we are describing more details about feeding pigs.

You should choose the type of feeds, depending on the age of your pigs. Different aged pigs have different food and nutritional demand.

So choose the right type of feeds depending on the age of your pigs. Here we are describing more about this.

Feeding Piglets:
You should start your piglets off with a well-balanced pellet feed. Pellet feeds are considered as best for the piglets because it comes in small and easily digestible pieces that are the perfect size for young pigs to munch on.

The pellet feeds also generally contain a well-balanced blend of protein, carbohydrates and essential vitamins and minerals.

You can easily find such pellet feeds at any farm supply stores in or within your area.

Feeding Growing Pigs:
Growing pigs require special feeds for proper growth. At this stage, you can feed your pigs with some grains along with pellet feeds.

You can wean them off pellet feed and switch them to natural grains, once your pigs get older and larger. This will make up the bulk of their nutritional demands.

Feeding Mature Pigs
You can feed your mature pigs with a variety of wholesome grains. Rice, barley, corn and wheat are the common grains that most pig farmers use.

Most of these whole grains are high in carbohydrates, which can cause your pigs to put on fat rather than lean, healthy muscle.

Hence, it’s important to supplement regular grains with protein-rich offerings (such as alfalfa and soybeans).
