  • Koch, B.A.; Allee, G.L.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1974)
    Two experiments involving 144 finishing pigs were conducted to evaluate alfalfa meal in diets of finishing swine. Results indicate that finishing swine can utilize diets with up to 20% alfalfa meal without significantly ...
  • Allee, G.L.; Koch, B.A.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1974)
    Two trials involving 94 pigs were conducted to evaluate blood meal as a supplemental amino acid source in swine diets. Performance of growing pigs was markedly reduced when blood meal completely replaced soybean meal as ...
  • Ames, D.; Brink, D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1974)
    Average daily weight gain, feed consumption, and feed efficiency were determined for growing finishing swine reared on metal (aluminum) as opposed to plastic, slatted floor at ambient temperatures of 17, 32, 41 and 46 ̊ ...
  • Koch, B.A.; Allee, G.L.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1974)
    A system for aerobic oxidation of waste has been used continuously since 1968 and is now functioning successfully. Figure 11.1 shows general design of the units. Originally "paddle wheels" were used to circulate liquid ...
  • Ferrell, K.C.; Allee, G.L.; Koch, B.A.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1974)
    Feeding trials involving each sex (boars, barrows and gilts) of finishing-weight pigs were conducted to determine the value of adding lysine to the rations. Rations containing 0.55% lysine were adequate for performance ...
  • Laudert, S.; Allee, G.L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1974)
    Sunflower seed (SFS) was evaluated as a feedstuff for growing and finishing swine. In all trials, SFS was added on an isolysine basis: 10 parts SFS replacing 8 parts corn and 2 parts soybean meal. Replacement levels were ...
  • Allee, G.L.; Koch, B.A.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1974)
    To determine the minimal level of supplemental phosphorus required by growing pig, ninety pigs averaging 34 pounds were randomly assigned from outcome groups to 18 pens representing three replications of six dietary ...
  • Koch, B.A.; Allee, G.L.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1974)
    Using. sixty barrows and gilts, we evaluated five protein sequences for finishing swine. Pigs fed rations containing 16% protein until they weighed 140 lbs., then 12% protein until they weighed 190 lbs., and there after ...
  • Wheat, J.D.; Kropf, Donald H.; Chang, C.H.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1974)
    Line differences in weight, litter size at different ages, and in age, loin eye area, and backfat thickness of pigs (adjusted to 200 pounds live weight) were not significant. Sex differences in weight and backfat thickness ...
  • Allee, G.L.; Koch, B.A.; Knake, R.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1974)
    In a three-week feeding trial for 30 growing pigs (70 lbs.), we compared diets formulated by using 1973 sprout damaged sorghum grain from two Kansas areas. No palatability problems were noted, weight gains were similar ...
  • Trotter, M.; Allee, G.L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1974)
    A growth and two nitrogen retention studies were conducted to determine the sulfur amino acid requirement of the finishing pig. Adding 0.10% DL-methionine to a 9.0% protein semi-purified basal diet containing 0.14% total ...
  • Trotter, M.; Allee, G.L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1974)
    A growth trial and a nitrogen retention trial were conducted to determine the sulfur amino acid requirement of the growing pig. Adding 0.10% DL-methionine to a 14.1% protein basal diet containing 0.21% sulfur amino ...
  • Koch, B.A.; Allee, G.L.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1974)
    Pigs fed rations containing waxy endosperm corn and those fed normal corn responded similarly in digestion and growing trials. Likewise, finishing pigs responded similarly when fed the two corns in digestion and growing trials.
