  • Stoner, G.R.; Nelssen, Jim L.; Goodband, Robert D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1989)
    The objective of this experiment was to evaluate three fish meal sources added to diets for the early-weaned pig. Fish meal sources were analyzed for total volatile nitrogen (TVN), which is an indicator of protein degradation ...
  • Lewis, A.J.; Giesemann, M.A.; Nelssen, Jim L.; Hancock, Joe D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1989)
    Two hundred forty nursery pigs (12.8 lb initial wt) were used in a 28-d growth assay to determine the nutritional value of Williams 82 soybeans with (+K) and without (-K) gene expression for the Kunitz trypsin inhibitor. ...
  • Weeden, T.L.; Thaler, R.C.; Li, D.F.; Fitzner, G.L.; Nelssen, Jim L.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1989)
    A total of 158 gilts were fed ad libitum one of the following four diets during lactation: .65% lysine, .75% lysine, .65% lysine + 3% soybean oil, and .75% lysine + 3% soybean oil. These same sows were carried through a ...
  • Bolsen, K.K.; Jones, D.B.; Hines, Robert H.; Hancock, Joe D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1989)
    High moisture corn (23% moisture) was harvested in September, 1988, and stored in concrete silos until March, 1989. As the corn was harvested, it was divided into four treatment silos: high moisture corn (HMC) and HMC ...
