  • Goodband, Robert D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1989)
    The swine industry is at a crossroads that either mayor may not change the way we produce pork in the future. As we head into the 90's, we are entering a new era in terms of growth promotion and carcass modification,which ...
  • Stoner, G.R.; Schricker, B.R.; Nelssen, Jim L.; Goodband, Robert D.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1989)
    Sixteen barrows were used in a metabolism study (avg wt of 101.2 lb) to evaluate the effect of dietary energy density and porcine somatotropin (pST) on apparent digestibility and retention of nutrients in finishing pigs. ...
  • Stoner, G.R.; Schricker, B.R.; Nelssen, Jim L.; Goodband, Robert D.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1989)
    A growth study (60 barrows averaging 125.4 lb) was conducted to evaluate the effect of dietary energy density on growth performance of finishing pigs treated with porcine somatotropin (pST). Barrows were blocked on weight ...
  • Li, D.F.; Harmon, D.L.; Fitzner, G.E.; Jones, D.B.; Nelssen, Jim L.; Goodband, Robert D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1989)
    A growth trial was conducted to evaluate the effects of addition of soybean oil, coconut oil, 50% soybean oil: 50% coconut oil, 75% soybean oil: 25% coconut oil, and 25% soybean oil: 75% coconut oil on starter pig performance ...
  • 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. ...
  • Li, D.F.; Thaler, R.C.; Nelssen, Jim L.; Behnke, Keith C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1989)
    One hundred sixty-eight pigs were used to evaluate the effect of soybean processing on starter pig performance and nutrient digestibility. Soybean products tested were commercial soybean meal, full-fat roasted soybeans ...
  • Li, D.F.; Thaler, R.C.; Harmon, D.L.; Weeden, T.L.; Nelssen, Jim L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1989)
    One digestion trial utilizing 24 weanling pigs was conducted to compare the effect of various fat sources on gut morphology and ileal nutrient digestibility. Diets had either no added oil (control) or were supplemented ...
  • Stoner, G.R.; Nichols, David A.; Allee, G.L.; Schricker, B.R.; Nelssen, Jim L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1989)
    This experiment was conducted to determine the interactive effects of environmental temperature porcine somatotropin (pST) and dietary energy density on the growth performance of finishing pigs. Forty-eight barrows were ...
  • Nichols, David A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1989)
    In recent years, the pork industry has faced numerous challenges. As consumer resistance to fatter meats has increased, the industry has had two options, 1) argue against popular opinion that fat consumption posed a health ...
  • Swanson, J.A.; Hancock, Joe D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1989)
    Two hundred fifty-five pigs, weaned at 4 wk of age, were used in an experiment to compare the efficacy of Bacillus subtilis and antibiotics as growth promoters for swine from nursery to finishing. Treatments were a ...
