What type of pig does Explode™ work well on?

Sunglo® Explode™ with Paylean® works well on market hogs that need to improve average daily gain and carcass leanness. As with any Paylean® based product, starting out with an animal that is structurally correct and square-made will often garner the most favorable results. Explode™ has been unanimously accepted across the show pig industry as a trusted Paylean® option and has been fed to thousands of champions from coast to coast.


How does Explode™ differ from other Paylean® supplements on the market?

Sunglo® Explode™ is different from our competitors in that it is fully fortified for an additional nutritional punch that's often needed when feeding elite show pigs. Explode™ is fed at a higher inclusion level than other Paylean® products allowing the animal's diet to be boosted not only with Paylean®, but with 23% protein and 1.6% Lysine; two critical components for building muscle.


How much Explode™ do I feed?

To achieve the 4.5 gram per ton level, feed 4 oz of Explode™ with 5.75 lbs. of complete feed (which is 6 total pounds of product ingested) once per day or split between two feedings. To achieve the 9-gram level, feed 8 oz of Explode along with 5.5 lbs of complete feed once per day or split between two feedings. Note: Paylean®, the active ingredient in Explode™, is approved for use in market hogs the last 21 days prior to harvest.


Available in a 25 lb. bag.


Important Management Tips:

  • Always provide access to fresh, clean water.
  • Use extra care when handling, loading and transporting pigs that have been fed Paylean.® It is recommended to remove Sunglo® Explode™ from the feed 12 hours before transporting.
  • Check weight gains at set time intervals and adjust daily feeding rate as needed until target weight is reached.
  • Always transition slowly from one ration to another to help avoid digestive upset.
