    Is there a difference between hog mash and sow mash?

    Thanks,

    I've never heard the term "mash".... you want whichever is 16% or better. It would be called a "grower" here.

    I probably didn't state that right. It's for my new pigs. I thought it was called mash but maybe it's hog feed or sow feed. I know our bag says SOW. Can I feed that to my male pigs?

    I have no idea what the percent is. I just know it's for pigs.

    We have what is called "Sow and Pig" feed here, which is a maintenance feed you give to pigs which are fully grown. You need a "grower" or "finisher" feed for your pigs, which will have adequate nutrition for them to do more than just hold their current size/weight.
