Guidelines for Feeding a “Middle of the Road” Muscled Pig

Starting Plan (First Two Weeks):

Typical starting ration for a middle of the road muscled pig, per feeding, is:

  • 1 pound of 611
  • ¼ pound of Oat Groats

Evaluate muscle in ten days to two weeks and see if you need to adjust protein down to 632 or stay on 611.  Increase feed content by ¼ of a pound as they eat it all.


Growing Stage:

Evaluate muscle throughout the entire growing period. When the pig starts to get on the verge of more muscle than desired, stage down to 632. We recommend mixing 632 and 685 so that you can adjust your protein and fat percentages without ever having to switch feeds.  On pigs that need to be quite a bit fatter, mix 611 and 685.

We suggest feeding Oat Groats to middle of the road pigs as well. Feed a quarter of a pound to a half pound of Oat Groats per feeding.

Typical growing ration for a middle of the road pig, per feeding:

  • 1 pound of 632
  • 1 pound of 685
  • OR, 2 pounds of 672
  • ¼ to ½ pound of Oat Groats or 698

Typical growing ration for a middle of the road pig that needs to be fatter, per feeding:

  • 1 pound of 611
  • 1 pound of 685
  • ¼ to ½ pounds of Oat Groats or 698

Evaluate muscle and fat cover once a week throughout the growing phase to see if you need to adjust protein up (needs more muscle) or down (needs less muscle / softer). Mixing 50% of 632 and 50% of 685 for a week to ten days will give you a good baseline to see whether you need to adjust up or down on protein and fat. We suggest to add fat by 120 pounds if needed by starting with 2 ounces of FULL FIGURE or SUP RRR OINK.

Replace your Oat Groats with 698 Slop to help soften and give them more body.


Finishing Stage (Last 30-40 Days Prior to the Show):

Feed 611 the last 30-45 days to increase overall mass. Evaluate muscle and shape the last 21 days to see if / when to add XXL or Vitamin+P.

Typical finishing ration for a middle of the road muscled pig, per feeding:

  • 2 to 2 ½ pounds of 611
  • ½ pound of Oat Groats or 698
  • 2 to 4 ounces of FULL FIGURE or SUP RRR OINK
  • 4 ounces of XXL or 1 ounce of Vitamin P (depending on which Paylean you choose) (fed wet)
