Effects Of A Combination Of Essential Oils (Victus Liv), Increased Zinc Oxide And Copper Sulfate, Or Their Combination In Nursery Diets On Pig Performance, A. Langemeier, J. Morton, S. Scotten, M. T. Thayer, J. L. Nelssen Jan 2017

Effects Of A Combination Of Essential Oils (Victus Liv), Increased Zinc Oxide And Copper Sulfate, Or Their Combination In Nursery Diets On Pig Performance, A. Langemeier, J. Morton, S. Scotten, M. T. Thayer, J. L. Nelssen

Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station Research Reports

A total of 280 weaned pigs (Line 600 × 241; DNA, Columbus, NE; initially 11.4 lb) were used in a 35-d study to compare the effects of feeding growth promoting alternatives (added trace minerals, copper and zinc, or essential oils (Victus LIV; DSM Nutritional Products, Parsippany, NJ), alone or in combination, on nursery pig performance in comparison to Carbadox, (Mecadox, Phibro Animal Health, Teaneck, NJ). Pigs were allotted to 1 of 7 dietary treatments in pens of 5 at weaning in a randomized complete block design with 8 replications per treatment. Dietary treatments were arranged with a negative control diet ...


Assessment Of Sampling Technique From Feeders On Copper, Zinc, Calcium, And Phosphorus Analysis, A. M. Jones, J. C. Woodworth, C. Vahl, S. S. Dritz, M. D. Tokach, R. D. Goodband, J. M. Derouchey Jan 2017

While numerous research articles have been published on how to collect a representative sample, and analytical or laboratory-to-laboratory variation, we are unaware of any studies to examine exactly how many samples to collect from feeders, or whether they should be pooled or not to minimize analytical variation. Therefore, this study was designed to evaluate different sampling procedures and the number of samples to collect, and achieve an accurate assessment of nutrient fortification in swine diets.

Diet samples were collected from a study evaluating the effects of increasing Cu on growth performance of finishing pigs. Treatments were arranged in a split-plot ...


Evaluation Of Elarom Ses With Or Without Tri-Basic Copper Chloride On Nursery Pig Growth Performance, H. Williams, J. C. Woodworth, J. M. Derouchey, S. S. Dritz, M. D. Tokach, R. D. Goodband Jan 2017

Evaluation Of Elarom Ses With Or Without Tri-Basic Copper Chloride On Nursery Pig Growth Performance, H. Williams, J. C. Woodworth, J. M. Derouchey, S. S. Dritz, M. D. Tokach, R. D. Goodband

Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station Research Reports

A total of 360 weanling pigs (DNA 200 × 400; initially 11.5 lb BW) were used in a 42-d study evaluating the effects of feeding Elarom SES in combination with increasing tri-basic copper chloride on nursery pig performance and fecal consistency. Elarom SES (Trouw Nutrition USA, Highland, IL) is a specialty feed ingredient containing a blend of active ingredients designed to enhance growth performance and gut health. Tri-basic copper chloride (TBCC, Intellibond C, Micronutrients USA, LLC., Indianapolis, IN) is a form of copper (Cu) that has the potential for improved bioavailability and enhanced growth performance. Pigs were weaned at approximately ...


Effects Of Increasing Copper From Tri-Basic Copper Chloride Or A Copper-Chelate On Growth Performance Of Nursery Pigs, C. Carpenter, J. C. Woodworth, J. M. Derouchey, M. D. Tokach, R. D. Goodband, S. S. Dritz, J. L. Usry Jan 2017

Effects Of Increasing Copper From Tri-Basic Copper Chloride Or A Copper-Chelate On Growth Performance Of Nursery Pigs, C. Carpenter, J. C. Woodworth, J. M. Derouchey, M. D. Tokach, R. D. Goodband, S. S. Dritz, J. L. Usry

Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station Research Reports

A total of 1,452 pigs [Group 1; 350 barrows (DNA 200 × 400; initially 13.2 lb)] and [Group 2; 1,102 barrows and gilts (PIC 1050 × 280; initially 13.3 lb)] were used to determine the effects of added Cu source and level on nursery pig performance. There were 5 pigs per pen and 10 replications per treatment in group 1, and 24 to 27 pigs per pen and 6 replications per treatment in group 2. Pens of pigs were allotted by BW to 1 of 7 dietary treatments arranged as a 2 × 3 factorial plus a control diet ...
