Effects Of Increasing Chloride Concentrations On Growth Performance Of 15- To 25-Lb Nursery Pigs, D. Shawk, K. N. Nemechek, R. D. Goodband, J. C. Woodworth, M. D. Tokach, S. S. Dritz, J. M. Derouchey

Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station Research Reports

A total of 300 nursery pigs (initially 15.5 lb; Line 241 × 600; DNA, Columbus, NE) were used in a 21-d trial to determine effects of increasing dietary Cl on nursery pig growth performance. Upon entry to the nursery, pigs were allotted by BW and fed a common starter diet (0.33% Na and 0.76% Cl) for 7 d. On d 7 after weaning, considered d 0 in the trial, pens were assigned to 1 of 6 dietary treatments that were fed from d 0 to 14. Experimental treatments included a control diet containing 0.33% Na and 0 ...


Effects Of Increasing Salt Concentration On Growth Performance Of 25- To 67-Lb Nursery Pigs, D. Shawk, M. D. Tokach, J. C. Woodworth, R. D. Goodband, J. M. Derouchey, S. S. Dritz, A. B. Clark Jan 2017

Effects Of Increasing Salt Concentration On Growth Performance Of 25- To 67-Lb Nursery Pigs, D. Shawk, M. D. Tokach, J. C. Woodworth, R. D. Goodband, J. M. Derouchey, S. S. Dritz, A. B. Clark

Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station Research Reports

A total of 300 pigs (Line 241 × 600; DNA, Columbus, NE; initially 25.0 lb BW) was used in a 34-d growth trial to determine the effects of added dietary salt on the growth performance of nursery pigs weighing 25 to 67 lb. Upon entry to the nursery, pigs were allotted by BW and fed a phase 1 common starter diet (0.50% Na and 0.67% Cl) for 11 d and then a common phase 2 diet (0.35% Na and 0.59% Cl) from day 11 to 25 after weaning. At d 25 after weaning, considered d 0 ...


Effects Of Increasing Salt Concentrations On Growth Performance Of Pigs Weighing 60 To 140 Lb, D. Shawk, S. S. Dritz, M. D. Tokach, R. D. Goodband, J. C. Woodworth, J. M. Derouchey Jan 2017

Effects Of Increasing Salt Concentrations On Growth Performance Of Pigs Weighing 60 To 140 Lb, D. Shawk, S. S. Dritz, M. D. Tokach, R. D. Goodband, J. C. Woodworth, J. M. Derouchey

Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station Research Reports

A total of 1,188 pigs (PIC 359 × 1050; initial BW 59.8 lb) were used in a 44-d growth trial to determine the effects of added salt on the growth performance of pigs weighing approximately 60 to 140 lb in a commercial setting. Pens of pigs were blocked by BW and randomly assigned to 1 of 4 dietary treatments in a completely randomized block design with 27 pigs per pen and 11 pens per treatment. Dietary treatments were corn-soybean meal-based with 20% dried distillers grain with soluble containing either 0.10, 0.33, 0.55, or 0.75% of ...
