Proper Pig Feeding……. consequences of Poor Swine Feed Formulations In Nigeria

let’s review in details how poor feeding screws up the pig farm.

Poor Gestation Feed = Costly Lactation

Poor Lactation Feed = Costly Weaning + Costly Gestation

Poor Weaning Feed= Costly Finishers

It’s a chain of rewards and punishment.

Listed below are the consequences of poor feeding at different stages of raising Pigs:


  • still births

  • Smaller litter size

  • underweight piglets

  • longer days to weaning


  • Poor sow body condition which affects the next gestation cycle.

  • longer days to weaning piglets

  • longer days to finishing weaned pigs

  • smaller litter size at next farrow

  • Piglet mortality from poor nutrition


  • Longer days to finishing

  • Poor feed conversion

  • Nutrition related mortality

  • Poor carcass quality

  • longer days to gilt sexual maturity

You can’t just decided to to feed right at a particular stage. When you do a stage right the pig rewards you immediately at the next stage.
