How much does a pig weigh?
A novice farmer, who chose pig breeding as one of his activities, needs to know how much a pig weighs in each period of his life. First of all, in order to notice in time if he starts to lag behind in development or gets sick, poor appetite and insufficient weight gain are almost the first indicators.
How much does a pig weigh in the first months of life?
At the age of one week, the young pig should weigh at least 2.5 kg. And each subsequent week should give him about two kilos. So by the age of one month the pig must have a weight of about 11 kilograms, and in two months - have a weight of 25. Moreover, the weight gain gradually increases, reaching 5-6 kg per week.
Weight gain on breed
How much a pig weighs depends very much on its origin. Outbred animals never reach the above described rate of weight gain. Another thing - Vietnamese piglets: their weight increases every day by 350-500 grams.
