  • 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 ...
  • Fitzner, G.E.; Nichols, David A.; Schricker, B.R.; Darden, D.E.; Weeden, T.L.; Goodband, Robert D.; Hines, Robert H.; Nelssen, Jim L.; Kropf, Donald H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1989)
    One hundred forty-four pigs (72 barrows and 72 gilts) were utilized in six treatments with six pens each to evaluate four levels of daily porcine somatotropin (pST) injections (0, 1, 3, or 5 mg/d) in combination with diets ...
  • 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 ...
  • Schricker, B.R.; Goodband, Robert D.; Hines, Robert H.; Nelssen, Jim L.; Kropf, Donald H.; Hancock, Joe D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1989)
    The femur, a rib, and third phalanx of the second digit from the front foot were collected from 108 barrows (initial wt = 125 lb) and analyzed to determine the effects of porcine somatotropin (pST) and dietary lysine on ...
  • Hunt, Melvin C.; Whipple-Van Patter, G.; Klemm, R.D.; Schricker, B.R.; Goodband, Robert D.; Nelssen, Jim L.; Hines, Robert H.; Kropf, Donald H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1989)
    The types and diameters of muscle fibers from 30 barrows that had received daily injections of porcine somatotropin (pST) or a placebo and were fed dietary lysine at .6, .8, 1.0 or 1.2% were determined. Fiber data indicated ...
