    Two 35-day trials involving 504 pigs were conducted to determine the efficacy of dietary supplementation of copper sulfate (CuS04) and/or dried whey to corn-soybean meal starter pig diets (1.25% lysine). Pigs were weaned ...
  • Allee, G.L.; Stoner, G.R.; Johnston, M.E.; Nelssen, Jim L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1987)
    This experiment was conducted to examine the influence of season on the response of finishing pigs to practical levels of fat addition. A total of 378 pigs (average initial weight per trial ranging from 83 to 98 pounds) ...
  • Stoner, G.R.; Allee, G.L.; Nelssen, Jim L.; Johnston, M.E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1987)
    A growth trial was conducted to examine the effects of select menhaden fish meal (SMFM) and dried whey (DW) in starter diets for pigs. A total of 240, 3-wk-old, weaned pigs averaging 12.1 lb were utilized. Pigs did not ...
  • Johnston, M.E.; Stoner, G.R.; Nelssen, Jim L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1989)
    A finishing study was conducted to evaluate the effect of a commercially available flavoring agent on finishing pig performance. One hundred ninety-two finishing pigs were used in the study. Half the pigs received the ...
  • Li, D.F.; Johnston, M.E.; Nelssen, Jim L.; Goodband, Robert D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1989)
    A growth trial utilizing 120 pigs (avg initial wt 43.4 lb) was conducted to investigate the lysine requirement for pigs weighing 45 to 75 lb. Pigs were fed a corn-soybean meal diet containing .65, .75, .85, .95, or 1.05% ...
