    Residual chipping material, also called clean chip residual (CCR), has potential use as a growth substrate in the nursery and greenhouse horticultural industries. A survey was conducted in the southeastern United States ...
  • Richert, B.T.; Morrill, J.L.; Hancock, Joe D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1992)
    One hundred eighty weanling pigs, averaging 23 d of age and 12.6 lb initial weight, were used to evaluate spray-dried wheat gluten (WG) in phase 1 (d 0 to 14) and(or) phase 2 (d 14 to 37) nursery diets. Phase 1 treatments ...

    A total of 192 pigs (average initial BW of 15 lb and 21 d of age) were used in a 35-d experiment to determine the effects of a heatstable yeast product on growth performance of nursery pigs fed diets without and with ...
  • Jones, C.L.; Starkey, C.W.; Hancock, Joe D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2003)
    A total of 192 pigs (average initial BW of 15 lb and 21 d of age) were used in a 35-d experiment to determine the effects of a heatstable yeast product on growth performance of nursery pigs fed diets without and with ...
  • Maloney, C.A.; Hines, Robert H.; Cao, H.; Park, J.S.; Hancock, Joe D.; Nemecek, Carla S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1998)
    The results from two experiments showed that a heat-stable yeast product survived well in diets that were steam conditioned at 158 to 176°F and pelletized. Also, inclusion of .2% yeast product resulted in a greater rate ...
  • Baudon, E.C.; Llanes, N.; Hancock, Joe D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2003)
    A total of 192 pigs (avg initial BW of 13.9 lb and avg initial age of 21 d) was used to determine the effects of complex diet formulations (with plasma protein and whey) in nursery diets with wheat gluten used to replace ...
  • Senne, B.W.; Sorrell, P.S.; Kim, I.H.; Traylor, S.L.; Hines, Robert H.; Hancock, Joe D.; Behnke, Keith C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1995)
    Rate and efficiency of gain were not affected by adding as much as 20% distillers dried grains in isocaloric diets for nursery pigs or 30% in isocaloric diets for finishing pigs. These results demonstrate that the previously ...
  • Neill, C.R.; Nelssen, Jim L.; Tokach, Michael D.; Goodband, Robert D.; DeRouchey, Joel M.; Dritz, Steven S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2005)
    A total of 210 nursery pigs (PIC L327 × L42), with an initial weight of 11.9 lb and 21 d of age, were used in a 28-d growth study. The objective was to evaluate the effects of increasing oregano oil in diets for nursery ...
  • Hancock, Joe D.; Mills, C.G.; Nichols, David A.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1993)
    Two experiments were conducted to determine the effects of nutrient concentrations and complexity of ingredients used in nursery diets on growth performance to market weight. In Experiment 1, nursery regimens were: 1) ...
  • Pendergraft, J.S.; Mills, C.G.; Burnham, L.L.; Hines, Robert H.; Hancock, Joe D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1993)
    An experiment was conducted to determine the nutritional value of wheat gluten and spray-dried porcine plasma in diets for weanling pigs. For the experiment, 120 pigs (14 lb avg initial body wt) were used in a 35-d growth ...
  • Starr, Zachariah William (Kansas State University, 2011)
    The nursery industry in the United States, particularly in the Great Plains region is growing; however, materials used in creation of artificial substrates used to grow ornamental nursery crops continue to increase in ...
  • Richert, B.T.; Gugle, Terry L.; Hines, Robert H.; Hancock, Joe D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1992)
    Two experiments were conducted to determine the nutritional value of extruded corn, sorghum, and soybean meal (SBM) for nursery-age pigs. Experiment 1 involved 180 weanling pigs, with an average age of 22 d and average ...
  • Richert, B.T.; Hines, Robert H.; Hancock, Joe D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1992)
    Two experiments were conducted to determine the effects of extruding sorghum and soybeans for weanling pigs. The first experiment involved 66 piglets with an average age of 19 d and average weight of 10.8 lb. Two diets ...
  • Traylor, S.L.; Behnke, Keith C.; Stark, C.R.; Hines, Robert H.; Hancock, Joe D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1994)

  • Kim, I.H.; Cabrera, M.R.; Hines, Robert H.; Rantanen, M.M.; Hancock, Joe D.; Behnke, Keith C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1995)
    Nursery pigs fed complex diets had greater ADG than those fed simple diets, and as particle size was reduced, ADG and F/G tended to improve. There was a trend for reducing particle size to increase ADG more for pigs fed ...
