Pigs can eat all kinds of scraps, or leftover food such as mealie-pap, bread, vegetables, fruit and pig pellets. Real pig pellets are, however, the best feed. Do not only feed one vegetable (such as cabbage), because pigs need a varied diet to stay healthy. We offer premium brands of pig feed from top vendors to cover all growth stages of swine.

Formulating a good pig feed will help achieve optimum growth of your stock. There is a direct correlation between feed intake and piglet performance. As feed intake increases, milk production rises, increasing piglet growth rates. A sow that is milking well should also have decreased pre-weaning mortality rates. Feeds should meet the animal’s needs for maintenance, growth, and reproduction, and contain sufficient energy, protein, minerals and vitamins. Farm grains are the most common and best source of food to feed pigs.

Pigs need an ample supply of fresh water, carbohydrates, fats, protein, and other vitamins and minerals. Most of the nutrients can be supplied by common commercial feeds, but some vitamins and minerals need to be added to ensure complete health.
