Show Pig Update

Weighing & Walking

Please walk your pigs in the sand every other day at least. Please weigh your pig Wednesday or Thursday and email me the weight(great job doing this!!). I will be at the project center on Wednesday afternoon from 9:00-10:00am, please come if you can so I can see you walk your pig.


Please weigh your pig every other day and record it on the attached form and send me a picture of your form every Friday after you weigh.


I would like everyone to text me another video 214-282-9875 of you walking your pig in the sand. I want it to include front, profile, and back. I would like this by Wednesday 12/23.

Feeding **Changes**

You should be feeding Linders 631 or 632 (whatever they have in stock). You will need to feed 4 pounds of Linders & 1 pound of Moorbody mixed together and 1 oz of MoorFat on top of the feed in the morning and then at night 4 pounds of Linders & 1 pound of Moorbody mixed together and 2 oz of MoorFat on top of the feed.
