Hello

i bought kale and sunflower microgreens at an organic store. It says they have

8% calcium
6% phosphorous
Vitamin k 90%
manganese 35%
vit c 10%
vit A 10%
iron 80%
zinc 4%
magnesium 15%
Among a bunch of other vitamins. The % is out of a human?s daily value. It?s serving size is half a bag 2 servings per bag. Are these levels of calcium phosphorous and Vit k safe?

thanks!

Kale has too much calcium and vitamin A to be given on a regular basis.

The safest greens you can give your pigs as a steady part of the diet are red and green leaf lettuces. Other things can be given in small amounts or as a treat.
