  • Rantanen, M.M.; Hines, Robert H.; Kim, I.H.; Friesen, K.G.; Hancock, Joe D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1995)
    During the growing and finishing period, the boars ate less, had better F/G, and were less fat than barrows. A high plane of nutrition (high vs moderate lysine concentrations for the growing-finishing phases) and decreasing ...
  • Rantanen, M.M.; Richert, B.T.; Goodband, Robert D.; Hines, Robert H.; Nelssen, Jim L.; Tokach, Michael D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1994)
    A total of three hundred pigs (initial BW = 111.6 lb) was used in two identical 70-d growth trials to determine the effect of feeder design on finishing pig growth performance. Pigs were allotted by initial body weight ...
  • Rantanen, M.M.; Cabrera, M.R.; Kim, I.H.; Burnham, L.L.; Hines, Robert H.; Hancock, Joe D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1994)
    Two growth assays were conducted to determine the effects of novel carbohydrate sources in Phase I and II starter diets on growth performance. In Exp. 1, 90 weanling pigs (avg initial body wt of 12.4 lb and 18 d of ...
  • Rantanen, M.M.; Hines, Robert H.; Kim, I.H.; Hancock, Joe D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1995)
    Pigs fed from wet-dry feeders had 4% greater ADG with 50% less water usage than those consuming feed from dry feeders. Pelleting diets improved F/G by 4% compared to meal diets. However, the benefits of pelleting were ...
  • Rantanen, M.M.; Cabrera, M.R.; Burnham, L.L.; Hines, Robert H.; Hancock, Joe D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1994)
    Two experiments were conducted to determine the nutritional value of oats and oat products in diets of weanling pigs. In Exp. 1, 115 weanling pigs (avg initial body wt of 12.4 lb and avg age of 19 d) were used in a 38-d ...
  • Rantanen, M.M.; Smith, J.W. II; Richert, B.T.; Friesen, K.G.; Russell, L.E.; Nelssen, Jim L.; Goodband, Robert D.; Tokach, Michael D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1994)
    Six hundred twenty six pigs (initially 9 lb and 13.2 d of age) were used in a 28-d growth trial to determine the effect of spraydried porcine (SDPP), spray-dried bovine (SDBP), and low-ash porcine plasma (LAPP) on growth ...
  • Mavromichalis, I.; Kim, I.H.; Burnham, L.L.; Rantanen, M.M.; Hines, Robert H.; Hancock, Joe D.; Kropf, Donald H.; Behnke, Keith C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1995)
    Partially omitting (up to 66 %) the supplemental inorganic phosphorus (P) source from a late-finishing (190 to 250 lb) diet resulted in slightly greater ADG and backfat thickness, which probably resulted from the greater ...
  • Rantanen, M.M.; Hines, Robert H.; Hancock, Joe D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1994)
    A total of 100 weanling pigs with an average initial body wt of 11.8 lb and average age of 17 d was used in a 38-d growth assay to determine the effect of castration on growth performance of nursery pigs. All pigs were ...
  • Kim, I.H.; Burnham, L.L.; Hines, Robert H.; Rantanen, M.M.; Mavromichalis, I.; Hancock, Joe D.; Kropf, Donald H.; Behnke, Keith C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1995)
    Average daily gain; F/G; dressing percentage; tenth rib fat thickness; and depth, marbling, color, and firmness of the longissimus muscle were not influenced by omitting the vitamin and(or) trace mineral premixes from ...
  • 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 ...
