    Girls love wheatgrass

    Does too much cause bloat? How much to feed each pig, and is daily ok? Tia

    Yep, it does. Any time you're feeding a pig fresh grass, you should start with a small amount and work up gradually. Give 'em a few strands at first, and increase it every day.

    Daily is fine.

    They are chomping down like a ton a day. Found whole foods sells organic cut and bagged. The bag is large and I don't eat it, so it's an afternoon and dessert treat. It's gone in a flash and they want more. They get a lot twice a day. More ok? Don't see any issues on them.

    Just don't start them on large amounts -- they can get bloated that way.

    You should always start with very small amounts of fresh grass and work up to larger amounts. You can google images of scours in calves to see what too much fresh grass can do to them.

    I search the Internet for a table with the weight and age of my pig and I’m already looking there. Do you have a scale at home? we need kitchen ones) Sometimes I see that they are hungry, then I feed a little more than usual
