Feeding 4-H market hogs By Tyler When raising market hogs it is important to start of by finding a high protein feed that is made for growing market hogs of that age and weight of your selected pig. Pigs 10 weeks and under should be fed a Starter ration with minimum of 20 percent protein they should be feed free choice at this age. after your pigs reach 70 pounds they should be switched to a grower ration of no less then 18 percent protein and be feed as much as they want for one half of an hour and feed every 2 hrs until they bed down for the night. After they reach a weight of 150 pounds they should be switched to a finisher of no less then16 percent protein and be fed a minimum of three pounds a day and a maximum of 4 pounds a day. After a happy lifespan of six months they reach market weight. Also make sure they always have plenty of water thru there lifespan. Notes on market hogs: Market hogs normal life span is six months of age or 250-260 pounds. Market hogs do best when raised outside unlike the store bought pork they. Barrows make the best market hogs. It is illegal to feed pigs and hogs raw meat. A pig is not a hog until the weight of 100 pounds.
