Hi just looking for advice on finishing pigs. At what age should free range pigs be finished, should they be fed a different food and should there feed be increased?

Cheers

    An outdoor pig will require more feed to get to the same weight, and an indoor pig is finished at 16 weeks, so and outdoor will take longer to get to the same weight in theory and rations go from weaner to grower to finisher and should be increased as they get older.
