The Effects Of Feeding Benzoic Acid And Essential Oils On Sows And Litter Performance, M. T. Thayer, J. L. Nelssen, A. Langemeier, J. Morton, Z. Ou, J. R. Bergstrom Jan 2017

The Effects Of Feeding Benzoic Acid And Essential Oils On Sows And Litter Performance, M. T. Thayer, J. L. Nelssen, A. Langemeier, J. Morton, Z. Ou, J. R. Bergstrom

Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station Research Reports

A total of 48 sows (DNA Line 200 × 400) and their progeny were used in this study to determine if feeding sows and/or piglets benzoic acid (VevoVitall, DSM Nutritional Products, Parsippany, NJ) paired with an essential oil blend (CRINA, DSM Nutritional Products, Parsippany, NJ) enhances sow and pig performance during lactation, piglet weight gain in the nursery, and survivability to market. For sow and preweaned piglet performance in the farrowing house, adding benzoic acid and an essential oil blend to the maternal diet did not affect (P > 0.05) litter performance or weaning weight of the piglets. Fecal swabbing ...


The Effects Of Feeding Benzoic Acid And Essential Oils On Growth Performance, Survivability And Fecal Characteristics Of Grower Pigs, M. T. Thayer, A. Langemeier, S. Scotten, J. L. Nelssen, Z. Ou, J. R. Bergstrom Jan 2017

The Effects Of Feeding Benzoic Acid And Essential Oils On Growth Performance, Survivability And Fecal Characteristics Of Grower Pigs, M. T. Thayer, A. Langemeier, S. Scotten, J. L. Nelssen, Z. Ou, J. R. Bergstrom

Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station Research Reports

A total of 200 pigs (DNA Line 200 × 400) with an initial body weight of 81 lb were used to determine the effects of feeding benzoic acid and an essential oil blend (Vevo- Vitall and CRINA Piglets AF, DSM Nutritional Products, Parsippany, NJ) to grower pigs. There were 10 pigs per pen and 10 pens per treatment in this 28-d grower trial. Pigs were allotted by BW and randomly assigned to 1 of 2 dietary treatments. Dietary treatments included a control diet, or the control diet with added benzoic acid (6.00 lb/ ton) paired with an essential oil blend ...


Evaluation Of Dietary Phytogenics On Growth Performance And Carcass Characteristics Of Pigs During The Growing-Finishing Phase, J. Soto, M. D. Tokach, S. S. Dritz, J. C. Woodworth, J. M. Derouchey, R. D. Goodband Jan 2017

Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station Research Reports

A total of 317 pigs (DNA 600 × 241, initially 108.6 lb) were used in a 87-d trial to determine the effects of two essential oil mixtures tested individually and in combination on growth performance and carcass characteristics of growing-finishing pigs from 108 to 285 lb. Pens of 9 or 10 mixed-gender pigs were allotted by BW and randomly assigned to 1 of 4 dietary treatments with 8 replications per treatment. Pigs were fed a nutritional program with 4 dietary phases with the same treatments fed in all 4 phases. Experimental treatments included a control diet with no feed additives ...
