    Eighty crossbred pigs (initially 85.2 lb BW) were used in a 2 × 4 factorial arrangement to determine the influence of dietary threonine:lysine ratios on growth performance and plasma urea N in growing-finishing pigs. The ...
  • Richert, B.T.; Tokach, Michael D.; Goodband, Robert D.; Nelssen, Jim L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1993)
    A total of 650 questionnaires were sent to Kansas swine producers, and 279 were returned. There was an excellent distribution in producer size based on number of pigs marketed per year and producer age and educational ...
  • Richert, B.T.; Langemeier, Michael R.; Goodband, Robert D.; Tokach, Michael D.; Nelssen, Jim L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1993)
    Approximately 30 swine operations are enrolled in the 1992 - 93 Kansas Swine Enterprise Record Program provided by Kansas State University. This program evaluates biological and economic performance and is part of a ...
  • Musser, R.E.; Kerr, C.A.; Richert, B.T.; Goodband, Robert D.; Nelssen, Jim L.; Tokach, Michael D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1993)
    A total of 150 pigs was used to evaluate the effects of corn with different crude protein content on growth performance of finishing pigs. Our objective was to determine if low protein corn might result in poorer pig ...
  • Owen, K.Q.; Kats, L.J.; Richert, B.T.; Dritz, Steven S.; Nelssen, Jim L.; Tokach, Michael D.; Goodband, Robert D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1993)
    Two hundred forty weanling pigs (initially 7.2 lb BW and 9 + 1 d of age) were used to compare four dietary sequences of three diets in a 21-d growth trial. Diet A was formulated to contain 1.7% lysine and contained 7.5% ...
  • Owen, K.Q.; Dritz, Steven S.; Tokach, Michael D.; Goodband, Robert D.; Nelssen, Jim L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1993)
    A total of 290 early-weaned pigs (initially 7.6 lb and 10.5 d of age) was used to evaluate various levels of spray-dried porcine plasma. Pigs were assigned to one of five experimental diets with either 5, 7.5, 10, 12.5, ...
