Pig Feed Recipe

I asked one of the PhD's at the Praire Swine Centre to help me out with a recipe.

Based on what I have, this is what he came back with, thought it might be useful for others:

For your gestating/dry sows you can feed something along the lines of 70% barley, 5% alfalfa, 10% oats, 10% peas, and 5% of your premix (based on recommended inclusion).

For your lactating sows, you could simply feed your grower diet as is, or dilute a bit to say 80% grower and 20% barley.

We get grower from Phil Maloff but am happy to use his formula with a few changes (I will post Phil's list of ingredients).
I also found a farmer out of Lethbridge area who sells organic peas/lentils (they are awesome) so would prefer to use that than soya meal. I think the field peas and lentils have other micronutrients than soya meal but would have to do a comparison.

The consultant did say that this isn't OPTIMAL and I didn't ask why, because I don't have access to much other ingredients.

The organic premix we have is from Wetaskiwin Co-operative Association, 4707 – 40th Avenue, Wetaskiwin. Alberta

Re: Pig Feed Recipe

We used to do a third of each in wheat, peas and barley as it was basically all we had available from neighbors. Now that we're in southern BC grains are so hard to find and so expensive we haven't bothered getting hogs again. Maybe when we're at a point where we can grow our own grains we will.
