PIG BREEDER PELLETS / MEAL

RIVERINA PIG BREEDER PELLETS / MEAL is suitable to be fed as a complete feed for lactating sows, pregnant sows and boars.

Large commercial piggeries should use a two phase lactating sow / dry sow feeding program.

TYPICAL COMPOSITION

  • Wheat, millrun, sorghum, barley, maize, vegetable protein meals, pulses, meat and blood meal, molasses, amino acids, vegetable and animal oils, mould inhibitor, Riverina vitamin & mineral premix.
  • Base raw materials may gradually change seasonally.

DIRECTIONS FOR USE

  • It is important with breeding animals to feed according to condition.
  • Replacement sows (gilts) should be fed 3.0kg / day of a grower type diet until they reach mating weight (approximately 120-150kg, over 30 weeks of age). After mating, for the first 30 – 40 days of pregnancy, the feeding rate should be dropped to a maximum of 2.5kg / day, as more than this may reduce litter size by killing embryos.
  • Gilts should gain 30kg of live weight in the first pregnancy to be approximately 150kg liveweight at farrowing.
  • It is important to replace the feed regularly so it remains fresh and palatable.
  • Pigs need clean, cool, fresh water available at all times.

Approximate feeding rates are listed below:

Class of PigApproximate Feed Consumption
Pregnant Sows (First 25-40 days of gestation)2.0 - 2.5 kg / day
Pregnant Sows (Rest of Pregnancy)2.5 - 3.5 kg / day
Lactating Sows (Feed to appetite)6.0 - 10.0 kg / day
Boars3.0 - 4.0 kg / day
