  • Owen, K.Q.; Richert, B.T.; Friesen, K.G.; Goodband, Robert D.; Nelssen, Jim L.; Tokach, Michael D.; Dritz, Steven S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1994)
    A total of 350 crossbred pigs (9.0 ± 2 d old and 8.4 lb +f- 2.5 BW) was used to determine the appropriate methionine: lysine ratio in diets for the segregated early-weaned pig. Two lysine levels (1.8 and 1.4%) and five ...
  • Owen, K.Q.; Richert, B.T.; Friesen, K.G.; Smith, J.W. II; Bergstrom, J.R.; Nelssen, Jim L.; Goodband, Robert D.; Tokach, Michael D.; Dritz, Steven S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1994)
    A total of 320 (160 barrows and 160 gilts) 14- to 18-d-old pigs (initially 10.2 ± 2.2 lb) was used to determine the optimal level of dietary lysine needed for the segregated early-weaned pig. Two diet formulation methods ...
  • Owen, K.Q.; Blum, S.A.; Nelssen, Jim L.; Goodband, Robert D.; Tokach, Michael D.; Dritz, Steven S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1994)
    A total of 216 pigs (initially 11.7 Ib and 21 d of age) was used in a 35-<1 growth trial to determine the effect of dietary L-carnitine on growth performance and tissue accretion rates for the early-weaned pig when fed a ...
  • 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 ...
  • Cabrera, M.R.; Rantonen, M.M.; Hines, Robert H.; Hancock, Joe D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1994)
    A total of 144 pigs (initial body wt of 10.4 lb) was used in a 56-d growth assay to determine the effects of different soybean preparations on growth performance and cost of gain in nursery pigs. Experimental diets were ...
  • Owen, K.Q.; Bergstrom, J.R.; Friesen, K.G.; Smith, J.W. II; Richert, B.T.; Goodband, Robert D.; Nelssen, Jim L.; Tokach, Michael D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1994)
    One hundred forty-four high-health, high-lean growth barrows were used to determine the dietary lysine requirement to maximize growth performance from 40 to 75 lb. The experiment was designed as a randomized complete ...
  • Smith, J.W. II; Owen, K.Q.; Friesen, K.G.; Lohrmann, T.T.; Blum, S.A.; Nelssen, Jim L.; Goodband, Robert D.; Tokach, Michael D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1994)
    Sixty-four pigs (initially 75 lb) were used to determine the effects of dietary betaine, carnitine, and chromium nicotinate on growth performance and carcass composition. Pigs were blocked by sex, ancestry, and weight and ...
  • Smith, J.W. II; Richert, B.T.; Owen, K.Q.; Bergstrom, J.R.; Blum, S.A.; Nelssen, Jim L.; Goodband, Robert D.; Tokach, Michael D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1994)
    Eighty crossbred gilts (initially 134 lb) were used in a growth assay to evaluate the effects of supplementing finishing pig diets with betaine and (or) choline on growth performance and carcass characteristics. Betaine ...
  • Friesen, K.G.; Owen, K.Q.; Nelssen, Jim L.; Goodband, Robert D.; Tokach, Michael D.; Unruh, John A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1994)
    One hundred-fourteen high-lean growth gilts (initial wt of 100 lb) were used to determine the level of digestible methionine required to optimize growth performance and carcass characteristics from 100 to 240 lb. The ...
  • 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 ...
  • Friesen, K.G.; Schinckel, A.P.; Nelssen, Jim L.; Goodband, Robert D.; Tokach, Michael D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1994)
    Conventional response criteria for amino acid research include mean live weight gain and tissue accretion rates over a given weight interval. However, these methods fail to characterize the changing response of tissue ...
