I know that this is a big subject. There are people out there saying that the only way to keep your pig small is to under feed it. Well I want to prove them wrong. We have been believers in treating our animals as well if not better than we treat ourselves. After tons of research, we found Mazuri Feed. Not everyone can get this in their local feed store and the shipping is high because of the weight. We actually convinced our local feed store in to keeping it in stock and they are glad they did.  Since they started stocking Mazuri, their mini pig feed sales have gone up. We chose this feed because of the in depth data that they provide. Here is the data sheet for the Youth blend.

Feeding Directions:

Feed on a free-choice basis as creep feed from 7 days post-weaning (8 weeks of age or older). Continue feeding Mazuri Mini-Pig Youth Diet free-choice if rapid growth is desired or feed at a rate of 1.5-3% of current body weight to regulate growth rate. Do not underfeed.
Change to Mazuri Active Adult Diet as desired to regulate growth rate at 16 weeks of age or older. For gestating or lactating females, feed a mixture of 50% Active Adult Diet and 50% Youth Diet for increased energy. For higher energy, increase Youth Diet to 60% of daily intake.
When using a self-feeder, make sure it is adjusted to minimize feed wastage. Feeders should be well managed so as to provide adequate feeder space, prevent moisture condensation, mold and insect development. Always provide a source of fresh, clean water and adequate drinking space.  Provide a draft-free pen with a clean, dry sleeping area.The level of feed intake depends on many factors including environmental temperature, other feed available and activity. The feeding levels suggested below are appropriate for average living conditions.

mazuriPot Belly Pigs need a specialized diet to ensure they get all the nutrients needed to live healthy life. You cannot run down to your local feed store and ask for pig food. Be sure to get Pot Bellied pig food or mini pig food. When you get your pig from Mini Pig Farm, we send you a starter bag so you can wean your pig off of our feed onto the feed of your choice. As long as the feed is made for Pot Bellied or Mini Pigs you can use it.

When you get your piggy home, start feeding it the food we provided. Use it for the first 2-3 days to help the pig feel comfortable. It was a long trip and the less stress the better. On day 3 , begin adding the new food in with the feed we supplied. About half and half. Your pig may reject your choice of  feed at first. What brand you feed your pig is up to you.We have done a lot of research and have tried many different brands of Pot belly pig food. We finally decided that Mazuri mini-pig food is what they liked the best and is the most nutritionally complete. Mazuri products were not available at out local feed store but they were able to get it for us. You can search Mazri’s website for a dealer near you.

There are many places to purchase Pot Bellied Pig food, so find one that is going to be convenient for your needs as well as your pigs. Please be sure to choose quality first. Your pig has special dietary needs that it won’t get from eating dog food( oh yeah put up the dog food they’ll eat that too). It is very important to set a feeding schedule for your pig. These are very small pigs, and will only need ¾ to 1 cup of feed per day. We recommend that feed you pig twice a day. Try to set a routine, something like getting up in the morning, take the pig out to potty, come in have you’re coffee, then feed the pig. It’s not critical to feed them as soon as you wake up. However, pigs like routine. They learn fast and will appreciate you for keeping the schedule. Do not feed the piggy every time it beckons. At some point your little buddy will test you. Don’t give in!! Keep them on a schedule and your pig will be understand and know exactly what to do.

Feeding amounts:
Morning = ½ cup
Evening = ¼ – ½ cup
