The time of year you feed each is different. Both feeds are a complete ration for laying hens, however the 16% Lay Pellets are meant for Summer (April – September) feeding and the 20% is meant for Winter (October – March). In the winter months egg production will diminish. Cold weather, the age of the hens and the molt will affect egg production .Some ways to offset the loss of production in the winter months. 1. Feed 20% layer feeds 2. Use artificial light to augment natural light for a total of 15 hours of light. 3. Supply clean fresh water daily also keep the water from freezing. Feeding Hen scratch is optional. Do not feed more than 10% of the total ration in the winter, as a treat.

4 months of age. Lactating cows need a ration of 14 %protein Dairy mix and high quality alfalfa hay to produce the best quality milk. Dairy mix intake may reach but should not exceed, 2.3% of the cows body weight (dry matter basis) high quality forage should be provided, with a minimum intake of 1.5% of the cows body weight (dry matter basis) in order to maintain rumen function and normal fat test.

Congrats on deciding to enter an animal at the fair! We have a whole line of State Fair Feeds to meet your needs. Contact us with specific questions for your animal at Feed Mill.

Once the hog is 40lbs until they are the desired weight for market (260+lbs usually). Hogs should be fed Sow and Pig Grower free choice. (Hogs may consume 4-6lbs of feed per 100lbs of live weight.) A typical hog from 40lbs to market weight will consume approximately 1,000lbs of Sow and Pig Grower. Hogs on our State Fair Feed, from 40lbs to market or show weight (260+lbs usually) will take 800 to 900lbs of feed over all.

NOTE: It is better to have two hogs, as competition usually insures a faster rate of growth. This is especially important with show Hogs as time is a premium.
