Q: I’ve seen success on your website from pigs being fed Rite Factor. How does it work exactly and when should it be fed?
A: Feed the recommended 4 ounces a day the last 45 days until your target show. You will see a bloom and freshness difference as well as a more rapid metabolism that enhances any other additives that you are using.
Q: How does Refresh work? Should I feed it year round or just before the show?
A: Refresh is a high energy electrolyte that adds optimal fill and bloom prior to show time. After you purchase your animal at a young age and long transportation is required, Refresh is a great tool to keep them hydrated until you have reached your final destination and they are on full fresh water again. When getting close to show time (14 days prior to show) Refresh can be used as a top dress. At the show, offer Refresh in the water as you hydrate or maximum fill is reached.

We all talk about trying to fit the ideal weight when we get to our target show. The best way to achieve this goal is to track the weight gain of our show pig during the growing stages. I recommend weighing every two weeks until we reach the last 60 days till your target show, then weigh every week. This will allow you to get an average daily gain for your project and can adjust growth so you are not too big or too small at the show.
