I certainly don't think it will hurt just feeding what you are.....you may have been advised to feed that way, so all the kids feed their hogs the same and no one has an unfair advantage as to what their hog looks like come show/market time.ChickenPotPie said:My sons are raising their first market pig. They feed Nutrena Ringmaster only. Nothing else. I tried giving it some strawberries once add it was not interested at all. The teen leader of the project then told me to not feed it anything else but the prescribed feed.
This sounds very different from what you all are doing. Has anyone raised swine this way? How do the results compare between the two method - all bagged feed vs. scrap/free range/pasture?
