Anyone ever have a hog grow so fast that their feet and ankles didn't grow fast enough to keep up with their weight??Well I do and they slowed down on their eating a bunch.Their about a hundred pounds and lay around alot more than normal and when they stand up you can see their hooves curled up.Thanks Clay

hello clay...sounds to me like them hogs need they hooves trimmed up....are these butcher hogs? iffin so and they are near weight to be butchered or sold i wouldnt worry to much about it...cause butcher hogs dont need theys feet and iffin gonna be sold let the new owners worry bout it.....better check them hooves fer hoof rot if they in that bad condition perhaps its more then 1 problem thats keeping them down....good luck

Do hogs founder like cattle? Long curled up hooves...too much grain.
