Take out the self feeder and hand feed him twice a day. Only feed him an amount that he will clean up in one feeding. Example, at this age, start him with 2 to 3 pounds (you will have to weigh the feed) each feeding. If he is licking the pan clean each time, add 1/2 pound each feeding until he begins to leave a bit in the pan, then you know how much he needs. Single pigs will get lazy and not go to a self feeder (because they know it will always be there). When you let them get a little hungry between feedings, they will normally clean up their food, unless they are getting sick. They will never eat or grow as fast on a self feeder as they will by hand feeding them. Unless, of course, you purchase another pig to provide competition at the self feeder. So, either spend more money on a second pig or put more effort into the one you have. By hand feeding the one, you can also add supplements/wormers and reduce his food intake, depending on how fast he is appoaching maximum weight for your show. Supplements are so expensive these days, it doesn't make sense to have to feed an extra pig that you don't intend to show. This comes from many, many years of raising show pigs...hope this helps you!
