    Finishing pigs were fed diets containing 0, 15, 30, or 45% wheat mill run (WMR) during cold and hot weather. Results indicate that 15% WMR can be included in finishing swine diets without adversely affecting pig performance. ...
  • Thaler, R.C.; Goodband, Robert D.; Hines, Robert H.; Nelssen, Jim L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1988)
    One-hundred fifty pigs weaned at 14 ± 2 days of age and averaging 9.8 ± 2.8 lb were used to determine the effects of increasing levels of dietary lysine on pig performance. Pigs were fed a pelleted corn-soybean meal diet ...
  • Thaler, R.C.; Schricker, B.R.; Fitzner, G.E.; Lewis, A.J.; Goodband, Robert D.; Nelssen, Jim L.; Hines, Robert H.; Kropf, Donald H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1988)
    Seventy-two finishing pigs averaging 130 lb were utilized to determine the effects of PST and dietary lysine on growth performance and carcass characteristics. Pigs were injected daily with 4 mg PST in the extensor muscle ...
  • Schricker, B.R.; Stoner, G.R.; Danler, R.J.; Thaler, R.C.; Kenny, B.P.; Hurt, S.S.; Fitzner, G.E.; Apple, J.; Warren, K.; Goodband, Robert D.; Nelssen, Jim L.; Hines, Robert H.; Kropf, Donald H.; Hancock, Joe D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1988)
    One hundred and forty-four finishing pigs (initial weight 126 lb) were utilized to determine the effects of PST dosage (4 or 8 mg PST' head^-1day^-1 ) and dietary lysine level (.8, 1,0, 1.2, or 1.4%) on growth performance ...
  • Goodband, Robert D.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1988)
    Two trials were conducted to evaluate the effects of raw soybeans, roasted soybeans, and soybean oil on finishing pig performance. In trial 1 pigs were fed a low protein control diet containing 7.5% soybean meal and ...
