Sow & Weaner Pig Pellets

Sgt Dan Sow & Weaner Pig Pellets are designed as a practical feed for lactating sows and their piglets from farrowing through to weaning.

The high quality ingredients encourage high feed intakes required to support lactation and minimise bodyweight loss in the lactating sow. They also encourage good early growth rates in piglets.

Recommended Feeding Rate

Feed between 200-500g per head per day depending on the type, sex, size and age of goats, expected performance and forage availability and quality.

Lactating Sows

  • Feed ad lib.
  • Ensure clean fresh water is always available.
  • After farrowing increase amount of feed offered each day by 0.5kg, until feed intake is around 8kg per sow per day. Intake will be affected by the number of piglets, size of the sow and milk production.
  • Offer fresh feed at least daily.

Piglets < 4 weeks

  • A suitable creep feed supplement can be made by mixing small amounts of Sgt Dan Sow and Weaner with a coccidiostat free milk replacer in a ratio of 5:1. Offer small amounts of this feed fresh each day to encourage early intake of hard feed and early gut development.

Piglets > 4 weeks – 3 months

  • Allow piglets ad lib access to the Sgt Dan Sow and Weaner diet. Feed intake will increase with increasing piglet weight up to around 1kg per day at 20kgs
  • Expect to wean piglets around 8 weeks of age.
