Effects Of Dietary Soybean Meal Concentration With Dietary Crude Protein Fixed At 12% On Growth And Carcass Performance Of Finishing Pigs From 250 To 300 Lb, J. Soto, M. D. Tokach, S. S. Dritz, J. C. Woodworth, J. M. Derouchey, R. D. Goodband Jan 2017

Effects Of Dietary Soybean Meal Concentration With Dietary Crude Protein Fixed At 12% On Growth And Carcass Performance Of Finishing Pigs From 250 To 300 Lb, J. Soto, M. D. Tokach, S. S. Dritz, J. C. Woodworth, J. M. Derouchey, R. D. Goodband

Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station Research Reports

A total of 280 pigs (DNA 600 × 241, initially 251.8 lb) were used in a 23-d trial to determine the effects of dietary soybean meal (SBM) concentration with dietary crude protein, fixed at 12%, on growth performance of finishing pigs from 250 to 300 lb. Pens of 7 or 8 pigs were allotted by BW and randomly assigned to 1 of 6 dietary treatments with 6 replications per treatment. Treatments consisting of 5 levels of SBM (10.6, 7.7, 4.9, 2.7, and 0%) with 12% CP and a negative control treatment with 4.0% SBM and ...


Dietary Supplementation Of Choline Or Potassium In Low Crude Protein Diets On Growth And Carcass Performance Of Finishing Pigs From 245 To 295 Lb, J. Soto, M. D. Tokach, S. S. Dritz, J. C. Woodworth, J. M. Derouchey, R. D. Goodband Jan 2017

Dietary Supplementation Of Choline Or Potassium In Low Crude Protein Diets On Growth And Carcass Performance Of Finishing Pigs From 245 To 295 Lb, J. Soto, M. D. Tokach, S. S. Dritz, J. C. Woodworth, J. M. Derouchey, R. D. Goodband

Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station Research Reports

A total of 284 pigs (DNA 600 × 241, initially 247.4 lb) were used in a 26-d trial to determine the effect of added choline or potassium on growth and carcass performance of finishing pigs fed low CP diets. Pens of 7 or 8 pigs were allotted by BW and randomly assigned to 1 of 4 dietary treatments with 9 replications per treatment. Experimental treatments included a 12% CP, positive control diet with 10.6% SBM; a 10% CP, negative control diet with 4.0% SBM; the negative control with added choline; or potassium such that the added choline or ...


Effect Of Supplementation Of Choline In Moderate And Low Crude Protein Diets On Growth Performance Of Finishing Pigs From 245 To 275 Lb, J. Soto, M. D. Tokach, S. S. Dritz, J. C. Woodworth, J. M. Derouchey, R. D. Goodband Jan 2017

Effect Of Supplementation Of Choline In Moderate And Low Crude Protein Diets On Growth Performance Of Finishing Pigs From 245 To 275 Lb, J. Soto, M. D. Tokach, S. S. Dritz, J. C. Woodworth, J. M. Derouchey, R. D. Goodband

Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station Research Reports

A total of 254 pigs (DNA 600 × 241, initially 247.4 lb) was used in a 19-d trial to determine the effects of added choline on growth performance of finishing pigs fed moderate and low CP diets. Pens of 7 or 8 pigs were allotted by BW and randomly assigned to 1 of 4 dietary treatments with 8 replications per treatment. Experimental treatments were arranged in a 2 × 2 factorial with main effects of CP (12 or 10%) and choline (none or added) to reach a final diet concentration of chloride of 823 mg/lb of diet. For overall growth ...


Optimum Level Of Dietary Crude Protein For Growth Performance And Carcass Characteristics Of Finishing Pigs From 245 To 300 Lb, J. Soto, M. D. Tokach, S. S. Dritz, J. C. Woodworth, J. M. Derouchey, R. D. Goodband Jan 2017

Optimum Level Of Dietary Crude Protein For Growth Performance And Carcass Characteristics Of Finishing Pigs From 245 To 300 Lb, J. Soto, M. D. Tokach, S. S. Dritz, J. C. Woodworth, J. M. Derouchey, R. D. Goodband

Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station Research Reports

A total of 238 pigs (DNA 600 × 241, initially 246.4 lb) were used in a 26-d trial to determine the optimum dietary CP concentration for growth performance and carcass characteristics of finishing pigs. Pens of 7 or 8 pigs were allotted by BW and randomly assigned to 1 of 5 dietary treatments with 6 replications per treatment. Dietary treatments included 5 levels of CP (9, 10, 11, 12, and 13%) that were formed by reducing the amount of feed-grade amino acids and increasing soybean meal in a corn-based diet. At d 26, pigs were transported to a packing plant ...
