- Finisher feeds are compound feeds used in the latter stages of the fattening of the pigs (their last weeks of life). Normally, they contain less energy so that the pigs do not get too fat or overweight. They also contain fewer vitamins and minerals because the animals will not need them, as they will be slaughtered in little time.
Feeding your Pigs
The most important part of swine production is knowing the correct way to feed pigs. To meet the necessary nutritional requirement of your pigs, they need a high energy diet that is low in fiber but contains ample protein. Pigs will consume enormous amounts of food quickly. To raise and maintain a healthy stock, maximize growth and reproduction, and increase production, it is necessary to feed them the right food and a balanced diet from wean to finish. Feeding: New born piglets need a diet which is very rich in Colostrum and they get this from their mother’s milk. After 8 weeks piglets should stop drinking their mother’s milk and start eating solid food called Piglet or Weaner Mash. They eat this type of food for 2 months after which they switch to eating Pig Mash until they are matured. The cost of feeding 10 pigs from when they stop drinking milk to maturity (a period of 5 months) is about N50, 000. You can keep your feeding costs down by manufacturing or compounding the feeds you give your pigs.

Foods to Avoid
When creating your own pig food mixture, there are certain types of food you’ll want to avoid for reasons ranging from slowed growth rate to outright toxicity. Here are the general foods to avoid in pig feed:
- Sweets and high-sugar foods
- Dog food
- Cracked corn
Foods high in sugars can slow growth rates while milk, meats, and fish can harbor viruses. Pits and seeds of apples, pears, apricots, and peaches contain a naturally occurring substance called amygdalin which is a cyanogenic glycoside that is released when chewed. Amygdalin will cause illness, discomfort, or even death. Potatoes contain natural toxins called glycoalkaloids, which can cause severe stomach ache or even death (though rare). Glycoalkaloids also contain solanine which destroys red blood cells, causes diarrhea, and heart failure.
