Effects Of Crystalline Amino Acid Concentrations With Or Without Formaldehyde Treatment Of Diets On Nursery Pig Growth Performance And Fecal Bacterial Concentration, H. Williams, J. C. Woodworth, J. M. Derouchey, S. S. Dritz, M. D. Tokach, R. D. Goodband, T. E. Burkey, S. Li Jan 2017

Effects Of Crystalline Amino Acid Concentrations With Or Without Formaldehyde Treatment Of Diets On Nursery Pig Growth Performance And Fecal Bacterial Concentration, H. Williams, J. C. Woodworth, J. M. Derouchey, S. S. Dritz, M. D. Tokach, R. D. Goodband, T. E. Burkey, S. Li

Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station Research Reports

A total of 1,235 nursery pigs (PIC 359 × 1050; initially 26.9 lb BW) were used in a 28-d study evaluating the effects of crystalline amino acid concentrations with or without formaldehyde treatment of diets on nursery pig growth performance, feed bacteria concentration, lysine content, and fecal microbial diversity. Sal CURB (Kemin Industries Inc., Des Moines, IA) is a commercial formaldehyde product that is commonly utilized in the poultry industry for Salmonella control in feed but has also been shown to reduce PEDV infectivity in swine diets.

Pigs were weaned at approximately 21 d, fed a common starter diet ...


Effect Of Zinc Oxide, Zinc Hydroxychloride, And Tri-Basic Copper Chloride On Nursery Pig Performance, H. S. Cemin, J. C. Woodworth, M. D. Tokach, S. S. Dritz, J. M. Derouchey, R. D. Goodband Jan 2017

Effect Of Zinc Oxide, Zinc Hydroxychloride, And Tri-Basic Copper Chloride On Nursery Pig Performance, H. S. Cemin, J. C. Woodworth, M. D. Tokach, S. S. Dritz, J. M. Derouchey, R. D. Goodband

Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station Research Reports

A total of 1,215 pigs (PIC 1050 × 280; initially 11.7 lb BW) were used in a 42-d growth trial to determine the effects of ZnO, Zn hydroxychloride (IntelliBond Z; IBZ), and tri-basic copper chloride (IntelliBond C; IBC) on growth performance of nursery pigs. Pigs were allotted by pen weight and assigned to 1 of 5 dietary treatments. Treatments consisted of added Zn as ZnO (3,000 ppm in phase 1 and 2,000 ppm in phase 2); Zn hydroxychloride (IBZ; 1,000 ppm in phase 1 and phase 2); and Cu as tri-basic copper chloride (200 ppm), alone ...


Effects Of Increasing Zinc, Using Zn Hydroxychloride, On Growth Performance, Carcass Characteristics, And Economic Return Of Pigs Housed In A Commercial Environment, H. S. Cemin, J. C. Woodworth, M. D. Tokach, S. S. Dritz, J. M. Derouchey, R. D. Goodband Jan 2017

Effects Of Increasing Zinc, Using Zn Hydroxychloride, On Growth Performance, Carcass Characteristics, And Economic Return Of Pigs Housed In A Commercial Environment, H. S. Cemin, J. C. Woodworth, M. D. Tokach, S. S. Dritz, J. M. Derouchey, R. D. Goodband

Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station Research Reports

A total of 2,430 pigs (PIC 337 × 1050; initially 66.3 lb BW) were used in a 113-d growth trial to determine the effects of increasing Zn on growth performance and carcass characteristics of finishing pigs. Two barns were used for a total of 18 pens per treatment with 27 pigs per pen. Pigs were allotted by average initial BW and assigned to 1 of 5 dietary treatments consisting of 50, 87.5, 125, 162.5, or 200 ppm added Zn from Zn hydroxychloride (Intellibond Z, Micronutrients, Indianapolis, IN). Experimental diets were fed from d 0 to 113 in ...


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 ...
