Ten week old piglets.

Ten week old free range piglets ( they run around a heck of a lot) how much food per day would you expect to be feeding them?

I've got a well known pig judge coming this week to run the rule over the two litters I have. I just hope that they aren't too fat or too thin.

I go by the "1/2lb per day per pig for each week of age up to a maximum of 4lbs" maxim. Seems to work for me but then my pigs aren't judged (except on taste)

How are your two doing?

Very well. I'm working in Lisbon at the moment but will post some pics when I get back.
