How much PreStarter do I need to feed?
As a general rule of thumb PreStarter is fed from when pigs hit 10 - 25 lbs. We recommend starting PreStarter while the babies are still on the sow by throwing on a mat or in a small creep feeder. Some breeders begin to introduce when babies are approximately 1 week old in the crate and fed until approximately 1/2 to 1 full bag per litter is used, depending on the size of the litter. By this time, the babies have been weaned approximately 5-10 days and it's time for the next step in the program, which is Sunglo Starter.
