    A total of 1,200 gilts was used to evaluate the effects of replacing conventionally processed soybean meal with extruded-expelled soybean meal on finishing pig growth performance. Dietary treatments were arranged in a ...
  • Knetter, Susan Marie (Kansas State University, 2009-07-09)
    Anabolic steroids are used extensively in beef cattle feeding management to take advantage of well-documented improvements in growth performance and efficiency of implanted cattle. In addition to muscle growth, steroids ...
  • Richardson, D.; Swenson, M.J. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2012-01-04)
    Twenty-five purebred female Poland-China pigs about 10 weeks of age were divided into five lots of five pigs each. The pigs were self-fed in pens having concrete floors. Water barrels with automatic watering cups were ...
  • Simms, D.D.; Schalles, R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-12-14)
    The comparative growth-promoting value of Compudose, Ralgro, Ralgro + Ralgro reimplant, and Synovex-C + Synovex-C reimplant was evaluated on five Kansas ranches with 674 suckling steer calves in seven trials conducted ...
  • Wiedmann, E.J.; DeRouchey, Joel M.; Tokach, Michael D.; Goodband, Robert D.; Nelssen, Jim L.; Dritz, Steven S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2009-10-20)
    One hundred eighty weanling pigs (initially 12.1 lb and 18 ± 2 d of age) were used in a 28-d growth assay to determine if Concept PR 100 (CNPR), a plant-based protein ingredient with added synthetic amino acids and ...
  • Daccarett, M. G.; Morrill, J.L. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2012-09-07)
