I was trying to figure out was Red Devil Lye. Sounds scary doesn't it?
Fill a five gallon bucket halfway with whole dry corn
Add two level tablespoons of lye.
Fill bucket 3/4 of the way with water, stir well and allow to sit for twenty four hours or until the corn has soaked up the water lye mix.
Feed by poundage per normal.
Now I'm going to try this on my sow that is down in weight as it's supposed to get rid of EVERYTHING including flukes. But I am not advocating the use of it until I see how my hogs do on it, but some of the old farmers swear by it and don't use anything else. I asked at Ace Hdwe where I bought it and the sales guy said that everytime he sells it, he asks, and that's what it's wanted for.
