Intensive Care Gruel (ICG) Indications

A highly water soluble and nutrient dense transition product specifically designed to be mixed with water and fed as a gruel to stimulate feed intake in small weaned, starved or orphan piglets. When ICG™ is mixed into a gruel it forms a tasty, aromatic and highly digestible product which lures pigs and helps entice high nutrient intake.

Directions For Use

ICG™ can be fed to small piglets dry or as a gruel to aid in transitioning weaned or orphan pigs to conventional starter pellets For feeding dry, use the steps below without the water added.

Step 1: Mix 8 ounces of ICG™ with 4-6 ounces of warm water and stir to form a gruel. Feed this amount of gruel for every 8-10 pigs or a small amount that the pigs will clean up within 30 minutes. Feed about 4-5 hours after weaning. Repeat feeding 4-5 hours after initial feeding.

Step 2: Mix 4 ounces of ICG™ with 4 ounces of conventional starter pellets with 4-6 ounces of warm water and stir to form a gruel and feed to 8-10 pigs.

Step 3: For subsequent feedings, gradually decrease the amount of water and ICG™ and increase the amount of starter pellet when mixing the gruel. Thus will reduce the problems associated with transitioning pigs to dry starter feed.

Offer ICG™ in a shallow J-bolt feeder or mat in small amounts and feed frequently to maintain freshness and encourage consumption. Expected consumption is 2 to 16 ounces.


Store ICG™ in a clean, dry feed room to maintain freshness.

Intensive Care Gruel (ICG) Caution(s)

For very small or orphan pigs using baby Pig ReStart™ One-4 as part or all of the gruel protocol may be beneficial. Piglets too weak to start eating can be drenched with Baby Pig Restart One-4 (4 ounces of Baby Pig ReStart™ in 8 ounces of water).
