How to Feed Potbelly pigs

Known for their voracious appetites, and for eating nearly anything you put in front of them, you must be careful however what you feed to your pot bellied pigs. It is ideal for them to have a diet that is low in calories, and high in fiber, which can be found in diets and food formulas by companies such as Mazuri(Purina), Ross Mill Farms, and Heartland Pet Pig Products. Be sure to stick to a regimented diet, as pigs are prone to obesity. In addition, fresh vegitables such as celery, cucumbers, peppers, carrots, potatoes, and some greens can be made for about 25% of a pigs diet. Pigs also love apples, grapes, and raisins, these should however be reserved as treats due to the high sugar contents. You should also set aside a plot of fresh untreated grass and soil for a pig to graze and root in, as this helps to supplement their selenium deficiency. If you'd like to provide extra fiber, it is recommended that you suppliment them with hay(alfalfa) and bran. MORE SECRETS ABOUT POTBELLY PIGS
