At Target Feeds not only do we create a range of high quality piglet starter diets to ensure correct growth and development we also supply feed supplements made from only the purest ingredients. Feed supplements might look the same, but we can assure you that there is a world of interest and a high degree of expertise put into every bag Target Feeds manufacture.
The pre-starter of the Target range, high in digestible milk powders and fish protein, its very high nutrient analysis ensures a fast start for all baby piglets mixed with water to make a porridge. Feed from 3 days of age, offering small quantities daily, increasing with appetite. At weaning, batch pigs for size and feed to appetite until they reach 6/7 kg live weight. The piglets should be changed gradually onto the Target 2 range of products or Target 3.
Target 2 is designed for 3 weeks weaned pigs but can be fed from 3 days of age. Target 2 is the more traditional diet suitable for pigs which can make the most generic improvements. Pigs should be kept on Target 2 until they are 10 kg live weight and changed gradually to Target 4
Target 275 is designed as a simple stage product for feeding from 6kg up to 12kg live weight without the need for two diets. It contains the most important attributes of Target 2 and Target 225 together with those of Target 3 and Target 350 in one product. Alternatively Target 275 can be used as a first stage diet for feeding to 10kg live weight and thereafter changing onto Target 3 or Target 4.
Initially designed as a second stage creep to be fed after our Target 2 range of products and can be fed up to 12 kg live weight. Target 3 can also be the first stage diet for pigs weaned at four weeks of age and has been particularly successful when fed to piglets weaned from outdoor sows. The ideal product to follow Target 3 is Target 4 to ensure a constant growth pattern
Target 350 is designed for feeding from 8 / 9 kg live weight up to 15 kg, changing gradually onto Target 4, Target 5 or suitable growth feed. Designed for feeding for a longer period than Target 3 and to give slightly better performance than Target 4.
Feed from 10 / 12 kg live weight on an ad lib basis always ensuring that the feed is kept as fresh as possible. Continue feeding up until 20/25 kg live weight and thereafter change onto target 5 or a suitable grower feed. Target 4 is the ideal translation diet to ease piglets from starter feeds onto grower diets.
Feed target 5 from 12 kg live weight as a link feed to ensure a smooth transition from fully cooked starter diets to weaner or grower feeds.
A high specification link diet bridging the nutritional requirments of a high specification starter diet and a early grower feed.
