Using Sunglo® 18-G™:
Sunglo® 18-G™ can be fed once your pig reaches 75 lbs. and up, or at any time during the feeding period depending on genetics, maturity and style of pig you're feeding.
At the start of the feeding period, gradually introduce Sunglo® 18-G™ over time the first few days, divided into two equal feedings.
Start at a rate of up to 3 lbs. per day for younger pigs, and up to 8 lbs. per head per day for pigs 200 lbs. and up, all while adjusting the amount based on consumption, end goal, and rate of gain.
Transition slowly from one ration to another to minimize risk of digestive upsets.
Be sure to include Sunglo® CleanOut™ as part of your deworming protocol.
Always be sure to keep pigs warm, dry, and allow plenty of fresh, free choice water.
