    A total of 360 pigs (initially 11.5 lb and 16 d of age) was fed a negative control diet containing no added Zn; one of six diets containing 165 ppm Zn from zinc oxide from the trace mineral premix and added AvailaZn (0, ...
  • Woodworth, J.C.; O'Quinn, P.R.; Sawyer, J.T.; Tokach, Michael D.; Nelssen, Jim L.; Goodband, Robert D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1999)
    A total of288 weanling pigs (13.4lb and 18 d of age) was used in a 27 d growth assay to determine the effects of adding Zn from ZnS04 or ZnO on growth performance. Pigs were allotted to one of eight dietary treatments ...
  • Pollmann, D.S.; Dennis, S.M.; LaForge, R.R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1983)
    Twenty-four sows were utilized to evaluate the influence of a high fiber diet on nutrient digestibility and hindgut bacterial populations and volatile fatty acid (VFA) concentrations. Sows were fed either a control of ...
  • Bolsen, K.K.; Berger, L.L.; Riley, Jack G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1974)
    Three alfalfa treatments were evaluated in a steer performance trial: (1) direct-cut and ensiled with dry milo, (2) field-wilted and ensiled, with milo added at feeding and (3) baled, with milo added at feeding. The ...
  • Steidinger, M.U.; Dau, D.; Tokach, Michael D.; DeRouchey, Joel M.; Goodband, Robert D.; Nelssen, Jim L.; Dritz, Steven S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2008)
