What you need to do is try to get a essentail product, called cruise control it will help you eat. just sprinkle some on there he or she will start to eat off of it in a couple of days.

my first year i was raising a hog, i had a couple of friends raising their projects at my house. one of my friends had a pig that wouldn't eat which was causing her to not gain weight. so what you need to do is either try to feed your pig a different feed or try putting eggs or molasses on the pigs feed. you could also try giving it vitamin b shots weekly and a small dose of paylene(4 grams per ton of feed) to help with the gain for the last 30 days.

We buy strawberry Jello mix in a box and pour it on their feed then water it down. They will eat constantly and with no fat, they will not lose their shape.

Vitamin B-12 paste or shots. It's worked great for my hogs in the past. just future advice.

cake mix or dry mollases- mix alot of it in the feed, and they should eat. Also if you make them drink more, they will eat more, so add a little sports drink or koolaid or some drink sweetner to their water.

You eat soy oil with the milk cream corn then it is good but in some cases reaction is occured for the eat food that time you have to use essanstial product and just you have to sprinkle that is the basic things.

I know it's a little late to be helping but just in case you run into this again, i have found that sprinkling jello powder on top of their feed sometimes helps and lambs milk (which is a powder you can find at most feed stores) might also help. I have fed that to my hogs before and they absolutely love it!

Well the most common thing would that it is too hot. Pigs will slow down eating or stop for a while so make sure and keep them cool. If not put some jello mixed in with the feed or cake mix.
