  • Koch, B.A.; Yu, J.T. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1962)
    Pigs used were both barrows and gilts, either Duroc or Black Poland China breeds. All pigs used in the study were approximately the same age when they went on test. The heavier pigs were assigned to lot 4. They were self-fed ...
  • Koch, B.A.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1970)
    Pigs fed corn gained faster than those fed sorghum grain in one trial. The reverse was true in a second trial. Overall average daily gain figures were almost identical (1.67 lbs. per day for corn; 1.65 lbs. per day for ...
  • Koch, B.A.; Allee, G.L.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1977)
    Supplemental vitamin C fed at two different levels (550 or 1,100mg, per kg, of diet) did not improve animal performance at the swine research center. Adding apple flavor or sodium bicarbonate did not change results.
  • Koch, B.A.; Kropf, Donald H.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1968)
    The need for zinc in swine rations has been firmly established. Likewise the inter-relationships between dietary zinc and other minerals, especially calcium, have been well authenticated. However, there are still many ...
  • Koch, B.A.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1969)
    The new K-State facilities for growing-finishing swine seemed ideal to re-evaluate various antibiotics as low-level feed additives. The first trial reported here was with the first pigs fed in the new barn. They also were ...
  • Koch, B.A.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1969)
    The protein level and protein quality of swine rations consisting primarily of grain can be changed by adding either protein like soybean meal or individual amino acids like lysine. Protein requirements are based on ...
  • Koch, B.A.; Lafferty, D.T.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1970)
    This progress report covers only growth rate and feed efficiency of pigs the first 73 days of one feeding trial. Replacing soybean meal with either dry-roasted whole soybeans or pressure-extruded, whole soybeans did not ...
