That can be quite variable! It will depend on how much grass, haylage, hay or veg/fruit they are getting as well as the time of year, how cold it is. It will also depend on whether they dig! You really need to be good at feeding by eye as that is the best method and will enable you to adjust accordingly. The link below will explain about Body Condition Scoring for pigs:

I am currently feeding my pigs on adlib hay/haylage and their hard feed amounts to about 0.5kg a day each for a 2 year old sow

Hope this helps!
Cheerio for now, Sam Jones :-)
