  • Maloney, C.A.; Hines, Robert H.; Cao, H.; Park, J.S.; Hancock, Joe D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1998)
    Castrates were predictably less efficient, had greater ADFI, and tended to have more BF than contemporary boars. Castration decreased detection of boar taint, but alterations of dietary CP, pH, and antimicrobial level from ...
  • De La Llata, M.; Grinstead, G.S.; Woodworth, J.C.; Herbert, J.S.; Goodband, Robert D.; Tokach, Michael D.; Nelssen, Jim L.; Dritz, Steven S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1998)
    One hundred and eighty weanling pigs (initially 14.6 lb and 21 ± 2 d of age) were used in a 35 d growth trial to evaluate different dietary fat sources. Treatments consisted of a control diet (no added fat) or diets with ...

    A 35-d growth trial was conducted to determine the influence of different soybean meal processing techniques on starter pig growth performance. From d 0 to 14 after weaning, all pigs were fed a common diet. Then pigs were ...
  • Mavromichalis, I.; Kennedy, G.A.; Hines, Robert H.; Senne, B.W.; Sorrell, S.P.; Hancock, Joe D.; DeRouchey, Joel M. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1998)
    In nursery pigs, enzyme supplementation generally had no effect on ADG or F/G, but a trend occurred for greater digestibility of DM in pigs fed enzymes. However, one notable interaction occurred. Enzyme supplementation gave ...

    Compared to a corn-soybean meal control, added-fat from tallow, soybean oil, and dry-extruded whole soybeans (DEWS) improved ADG, F/G, and digestibility of DM and N. Feeding tallow increased belly firmness but also increased ...
  • Cao, H.; Hines, Robert H.; Jiang, J.M.; Park, J.S.; Froetschner, J.R.; Maloney, C.A.; Hancock, Joe D.; Behnke, Keith C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1998)
    As expected, ADG, ADFI, F/G, and digestibility of DM and N were improved in nursery pigs when cone pressure was increased during dry and moist expanding of whole soybeans. These response were quadratic for the most part, ...
  • Johnston, S.L.; Hines, Robert H.; Kennedy, G.A.; Maloney, C.A.; Traylor, S.L.; Sorrell, S.P.; Hancock, Joe D.; Behnke, Keith C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1998)
    Pellet durability index was similar for sorghum- vs com-based diets but was greater for expander-conditioned pellets than standard-conditioned pellets. For finishing pigs, ADG, F/G, and carcass measurenlents were similar ...
  • Moser, S.A.; Woodworth, J.C.; Grinstead, G.S.; Tokach, Michael D.; Goodband, Robert D.; Nelssen, Jim L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1998)
    A total of 180 pigs (l2.961b and 21 d of age) was used in a 28 d trial to determine the effects of substituting flash-dried poultry protein for select menhaden fish meal in the phase II diet on the performance of weanling ...
  • Musser, R.E.; Goodband, Robert D.; Nelssen, Jim L.; Tokach, Michael D.; Dritz, Steven S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1998)
    Three hundred arid fifty three lactating sows were used to determine the effects of increased dietary lysine on sow and litter performance. At farrowing, sows were assigned to com-soybean meal lactation diets consisting ...
  • De La Llata, M.; Loughmiller, J.A.; Tokach, Michael D.; Goodband, Robert D.; Nelssen, Jim L.; Dritz, Steven S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1998)
    We conducted two studies to determine the effects of increasing L-lysine HCI in finishing pig diets. Experiment 1 used sorghum-soybean meal-based diets, and Exp. 2 used corn-soybean meal-based diets. Treatments included ...
  • Grinstead, G.S.; Stott, R.; Goodband, Robert D.; Nelssen, Jim L.; Tokach, Michael D.; Dritz, Steven S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1998)
    We conducted a 28-d experiment to evaluate effects of increasing dietary pantothenic acid on growth performance of segregated early-weaned pigs. Pigs (initially 8.8 ± 2.21b and 11 ± 2 d of age) were fed a control diet ...
  • De La Llata, M.; O'Quinn, P.R.; Woodworth, J.C.; Moser, S.A.; Tokach, Michael D.; Goodband, Robert D.; Nelssen, Jim L.; Dritz, Steven S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1998)
    Three hundred and fifty pigs were used in a 27-d growth study to determine the appropriate total sulfur amino acid:lysine ratio for 25 to 50 lb pigs. Pigs were blocked by weight (initially 22.5 lb) and allotted to one of ...
  • Hines, Robert H.; Coa, H.; Lee, J.; Maloney, C.A.; Park, J.S.; DeRouchey, Joel M.; Hancock, Joe D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1998)
    Some swine practitioners are advocating the use of dietary acidifiers to reduce urine pH and, thereby, reduce the incidence of urinary tract infections. In our experiment, sows fed an inorganic (phosphoric) acid had lower ...
  • O'Quinn, P.R.; Woodworth, J.C.; Nelssen, Jim L.; Tokach, Michael D.; Goodband, Robert D.; Unruh, John A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1998)
