I read in a post in the medical section that said romaine lettuce is high in calcium.
When I look at the calculator under the CA/PH ratio column it says romaine is 0.8.
At the bottom of the page it says we want 1.33 or higher. Is the 1 not the calcium and .33 the phosphorus?
Are we not trying to get the numbers to go say 1.66 or 1.80 etc? The higher the second number the better as long as it doesn't cause the first one to go to 2 right?
If the numbers would say 2.68 that would be to much calcium wouldn't it?
Many people with sludge pigs report problems feeding romaine in larger amounts for that reason.
I've had to eliminate it entirely from our guys' diet.
I do not know why but when I used to feed my pigs a bunch of romaine (I had a big supply of it on occasion), I noticed lots more calcium/powdery pee being passed. I think other people have had the same experience. So I don't know if this means it is processed differently or what. I just found when I fed more grass and less romaine, the pee was more clear.
As for the rest of it I am glad to know I have not been doing that part backwards.
Thank you for reassuring me.
