HEYGATES PIG FEEDS
22% PROTEIN, 3.5% FIBRE
Creepgrow is a cereal based ration designed as a creep for later weaning systems which can also be used during the early growing phase.
Introduce Creepgrow at 3 to 4 weeks of age and feed ad lib to 10 or 11 weeks of age (approx 35kg liveweight).
COUNTRY FINISHER PELLETS
19% PROTEIN 5% FIBRE
A grower/finisher ration formulated to maintain good growth rates from 10 or 11 weeks of age right through to finish. It is recommended that the feeding rate is restricted to about 2kg up to 15 weeks of age (approx 65kg liveweight) or 2.5kg for older pigs. This will reduce the risk of the pig laying down too much fat.
BREEDING SOW NUTS
16% PROTEIN, 6% FIBRE
A quality ration designed to promote milk production.
A maintenance ration for a typical sow is around 2.5kg per day. After farrowing increase the feed gradually over the first 10 days. A good rule of thumb is to feed 2kg plus 0.5kg per piglet. At weaning reduce the feed to maintenance levels unless the sow is very thin.
SOW AND WEANER MEAL
17.5% PROTEIN 5.75% FIBRE
A meal suitable for wet feeding, or for smaller producers who require a single diet for sows and weaners. This high protein ration will stimulate milk production in the sow and ensure that the young piglets get off to a good start. Feeding rates should be similar to the Breeding Sow Nuts.
BREEDING SOW ROLLS
16% PROTEIN 4.5% FIBRE
A similar product to the Breeding Sow Nuts but in a 15mm diameter roll which is more suitable for feeding on the ground or into straw bedding.
