Diets for pig production have become highly specialised feeds. Feeds are fine-tuned to each stage of production to maximise performance of the pig whether it be improved reproduction, growth rates, early weaning or lactation.
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.
- 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 Pig||Approximate 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|
|Boars||3.0 - 4.0 kg / day|

- Scientifically formulated to satisfy the nutritional requirements of breeding pigs to maximise performance.
- Available in pellet or meal form. When produced as pellets, feed wastage is minimised, digestibility is improved and separation of the feed is eliminated, ensuring a consistent intake of nutrients.
- Protein meals provide natural sources of essential amino acids. Lysine and methionine are added to balance essential nutrient requirements.
- Supplies essential nutrients for breeding performance. No need for any other supplementary feed to be used.
- Contains essential vitamins and minerals.
- Manufactured to strict quality control standards for incoming raw materials and the finished product.
- Formulated in accordance with current research into pig nutrition and mixed using a variety of quality raw materials.
Meat – Nil.
