Dietary Total Sulfur Amino Acid Requirement For Optimal Growth Performance And Carcass Characteristics In Finishing Gilts, J A. Loughmiller, Michael D. Tokach, Evan C. Titgemeyer, I H. Kim, J R. Bergstrom, J W. Smith Ii, Robert D. Goodband, Jim L. Nelssen

Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station Research Reports

Finishing gilts (initially 163 lb) were fed .58% total lysine (.50% apparent digestible) and total sulfur amino acid (TSAA) concentrations of .26, .285, .31, .335, and .36% (.225 to .325% apparent digestible). These values represent TSAA: lysine ratios of 45, 50, 55, 60, and 65%. Results suggest a linear decrease in ADG and ADFI along with poorer F/G with increasing TSAA levels. However, gilts fed .285% TSAA (50% of lysine) had the best ADG and F/G. No effect was observed on any carcass criteria. Based on the results of this study, the TSAA requirement is not greater than ...


Influence Of Lysine Concentration On Growth Performance And Carcass Characteristics Of Finishing Pigs, Robert D. Goodband, Michael D. Tokach, Jim L. Nelssen, Steven S. Dritz Jan 1996

Influence Of Lysine Concentration On Growth Performance And Carcass Characteristics Of Finishing Pigs, Robert D. Goodband, Michael D. Tokach, Jim L. Nelssen, Steven S. Dritz

Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station Research Reports

We used a total of 11,653 pigs to examine the influence of a lysine phase-feeding regimen on growth performance and carcass characteristics in finishing pigs. We found that the lysine regimen did not affect ADG. Also, the low-lysine regimen was adequate for maximizing growth performance and carcass characteristics of barrows. However, the low-lysine regimen was inadequate to optimize feed efficiency in gilts. Further analysis indicated that the largest differences in feed efficiency were for the 115 to 160 lb period in gilts. Later in the growth period, feed efficiency of gilts was similar across dietary lysine regimens.; Swine Day ...


The Effects Of Porcine Reproductive And Respiratory Syndrome (Prrs) Vaccination On Postweaning Growth Performance, S D. Pretzer, K M. Claussen, J R. Bergstrom, Steven C. Henry, R Phillips, Michael D. Tokach, Robert D. Goodband, Jim L. Nelssen, Steven S. Dritz Jan 1996

The Effects Of Porcine Reproductive And Respiratory Syndrome (Prrs) Vaccination On Postweaning Growth Performance, S D. Pretzer, K M. Claussen, J R. Bergstrom, Steven C. Henry, R Phillips, Michael D. Tokach, Robert D. Goodband, Jim L. Nelssen, Steven S. Dritz

Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station Research Reports

We evaluated the effects of a modified-live virus vaccine for PRRS virus on nursery growth performance. The pigs used in this study were obtained from a herd with substandard nursery growth performance attributed to PRRS virus infection. We failed to detect the presence of active circulating field strain virus in either the controls or vaccinated pigs. However, we did detect a strain similar to the vaccine virus strain on d 34 after weaning in the vaccinated pigs. The vaccinated pigs had poorer growth performance from d 7 to 14 after vaccination and were lighter in weight for the remainder of ...


The Effects Of Experimental Potato Protein On Starter Pig Growth Performance, C A. Kerr, J R. Bergstrom, R E. Musser, W B. Nessmith Jr, Robert D. Goodband, Michael D. Tokach, Jim L. Nelssen Jan 1996

The Effects Of Experimental Potato Protein On Starter Pig Growth Performance, C A. Kerr, J R. Bergstrom, R E. Musser, W B. Nessmith Jr, Robert D. Goodband, Michael D. Tokach, Jim L. Nelssen

Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station Research Reports

This study suggested that experimental potato protein can be an effective replacement for a portion of spray-dried animal plasma in starter diets. Pigs fed combinations of experimental potato protein and spray-dried plasma had greater ADG than those fed either protein source alone. In phase II diets, pigs fed experimental potato protein had similar ADG and FIG compared with those fed spray-dried blood meal and select menhaden fish meal.; Swine Day, Manhattan, KS, November 21, 1996


Swine Manure Management, James P. Murphy Jan 1996

Swine Manure Management, James P. Murphy

Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station Research Reports

Manure nutrients help build and maintain soil fertility. Manure also improves tilth, increases waterholding capacity, lessens wind and water erosion, improves aeration, and promotes beneficial organisms. When wastes include runoff or dilution water, they can supply water as well as nutrients to crops. The economic value of manure fertilizer is calculated from its available nitrogen (N), phosphorus (P), and potassium (K) at commercial fertilizer prices. These values change with the costs of fertilizer and handling practices.; Swine Day, Manhattan, KS, November 21, 1996


Evaluation Of The Total Sulfur Amino Acid Requirement Of Finishing Pigs, J A. Loughmiller, J W. Smith Ii, J R. Bergstrom, Robert D. Goodband, Michael D. Tokach, Jim L. Nelssen Jan 1996

Evaluation Of The Total Sulfur Amino Acid Requirement Of Finishing Pigs, J A. Loughmiller, J W. Smith Ii, J R. Bergstrom, Robert D. Goodband, Michael D. Tokach, Jim L. Nelssen

Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station Research Reports

Sixty four gilts (initially 120 lb) were used to evaluate the effects of increasing total sulfur amino acid (TSAA):lysine ratios on growth performance and carcass characteristics. Diets included two levels of lysine (.55% and .70% total lysine) and three TSAA:lysine ratios (60, 65, and 70% of lysine) arranged in a 2 x 3 factorial. A tendency for a lysine x TSAA interaction was observed for ADG and ADFI. Increasing TSAA:lysine ratio decreased ADG and ADFI in pigs fed .55% lysine; however, ADG and ADFI were increased in pigs fed .70% lysine and 65% TSAA:lysine. Pigs fed ...


The Use Of Real-Time Ultrasound To Model The Growth Performance And Lysine Requirements Of Growing-Finishing Pigs On Commercial Farms, J W. Smith Ii, A P. Schinckel, Michael D. Tokach, Jim L. Nelssen, Robert D. Goodband, Steven S. Dritz Jan 1996

The Use Of Real-Time Ultrasound To Model The Growth Performance And Lysine Requirements Of Growing-Finishing Pigs On Commercial Farms, J W. Smith Ii, A P. Schinckel, Michael D. Tokach, Jim L. Nelssen, Robert D. Goodband, Steven S. Dritz

Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station Research Reports

Eighty pigs, 40 barrows and 40 gilts, on two commercial finishing operations were used to model growth and accretion rates. Major differences were observed between the two farms. This analysis indicates that realtime ultrasound can be used to develop lean and lipid accretion curves for formulating farm-specific diets that optimize lean growth performance in commercial operations.; Swine Day, Manhattan, KS, November 21, 1996


Effects Of Fat And Sodium Bicarbonate On Growth Performance And Stomach Morphology In Finishing Pigs, S P. Sorrell, I H. Kim, Robert H. Hines, G A. Kennedy, L L. Burnham, Joe D. Hancock Jan 1996

Effects Of Fat And Sodium Bicarbonate On Growth Performance And Stomach Morphology In Finishing Pigs, S P. Sorrell, I H. Kim, Robert H. Hines, G A. Kennedy, L L. Burnham, Joe D. Hancock

Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station Research Reports

Pigs fed diets with soybean oil consumed less feed; grew more efficiently; and had greater last-rib backfat thickness, keratosis, and ulceration in their stomachs than pigs fed diets without soybean oil. Pigs fed diets with NaHC03 tended to eat more feed and had numerically greater ADG, but feed/gain and carcass measurements were not affected. NaHC03 decreased ulceration scores only for pigs fed diets without added fat.; Swine Day, Manhattan, KS, November 21, 1996


Determination Of Contract Base Payments To Feeder-Pig Producers, J L. Parcell, Michael R. Langemeier Jan 1996

Determination Of Contract Base Payments To Feeder-Pig Producers, J L. Parcell, Michael R. Langemeier

Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station Research Reports

Risks associated with independent feeder-pig production have prompted producers to seek alternative production and marketing methods. A means of reducing risk has developed through contract feeder-pig producing. Research results indicate that slightly risk-averse producers required contract base payments ranging from $7.50 to $28.50 per head. Strongly risk-averse producers required contract base payments ranging from $2.50 to $17.75 per head. The lower end of the ranges is for a low-profit producer. The upper end of the ranges is for a high-profit producer.; Swine Day, Manhattan, KS, November 21, 1996


The Effects Of Supplementing Growing-Finishing Pig Diets With Carnitine And(Or) Chromium On Growth And Carcass Characteristics, J W. Smith Ii, B T. Richert, K Q. Owen, J R. Bergstrom, W B. Nessmith Jr, S A. Blum, Jim L. Nelssen, Robert D. Goodband, Michael D. Tokach Jan 1996

The Effects Of Supplementing Growing-Finishing Pig Diets With Carnitine And(Or) Chromium On Growth And Carcass Characteristics, J W. Smith Ii, B T. Richert, K Q. Owen, J R. Bergstrom, W B. Nessmith Jr, S A. Blum, Jim L. Nelssen, Robert D. Goodband, Michael D. Tokach

Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station Research Reports

Eighty crossbred gilts (initially 83 lb)were used to examine the effects of 50 ppm carnitine and(or) 200 ppb chromium from chromium nicotinate on growth performance and carcass characteristics. In this trial, adding carnitine and(or) chromiun1 to the diets of high-lean growth finishing gilts did not increase carcass leanness. However, the combination of carnitine and chromium improved the color characteristics of the longissimus muscle.; Swine Day, Manhattan, KS, November 21, 1996


Removing Vitamin And Trace Mineral Premixes From Finisher Diets (154 To 247 Lb) Did Not Affect Growth Performance, Carcass Characteristics, Or Meat Quality, I H. Kim, J H. Lee, J S. Park, Donald H. Kropf, S L. Johnston, P Sorrell, Robert H. Hines, Joe D. Hancock Jan 1996

Removing Vitamin And Trace Mineral Premixes From Finisher Diets (154 To 247 Lb) Did Not Affect Growth Performance, Carcass Characteristics, Or Meat Quality, I H. Kim, J H. Lee, J S. Park, Donald H. Kropf, S L. Johnston, P Sorrell, Robert H. Hines, Joe D. Hancock

Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station Research Reports

Average daily gain; ADFI; F/G; dressing percentage; tenth rib fat thickness and depth; and color, firmness, and marbling of the longissimus muscle were not influenced by omitting the vitamin and(or) trace mineral premixes from diets during finishing (154 to 247 lb). Thus, omitting vitamin and trace mineral premixes can decrease diet costs without decreasing performance or meat quality of high-lean pigs.; Swine Day, Manhattan, KS, November 21, 1996


Omitting Vitamin And Trace Mineral Premixes, And(Or) Reducing Inorganic Phosphorus During Late Finishing Did Not Affect Growth Performance, Carcass Traits, Or Muscle Quality, I Mavromichalis, Donald H. Kropf, G A. Kennedy, Robert H. Hines, B W. Senne, I H. Kim, S L. Johnston, Joe D. Hancock Jan 1996

Omitting Vitamin And Trace Mineral Premixes, And(Or) Reducing Inorganic Phosphorus During Late Finishing Did Not Affect Growth Performance, Carcass Traits, Or Muscle Quality, I Mavromichalis, Donald H. Kropf, G A. Kennedy, Robert H. Hines, B W. Senne, I H. Kim, S L. Johnston, Joe D. Hancock

Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station Research Reports

Omitting the vitamin and trace mineral premixes and(or) adding 2/3 less supplemental inorganic phosphorus source (from .55% down to .40% total P) to diets during late finishing (191 to 265 lb) had no effect on growth performance, carcass characteristics, or muscle quality in high-lean pigs. Thus, this concept can be used to decrease the cost of feeding terminal-cross pigs to heavy weights, while decreasing excretion of minerals from intensive swine operations.; Swine Day, Manhattan, KS, November 21, 1996


Use Of Sorghum-Based Distillers Grains In Diets For Nursery And Finishing Pigs, B W. Senne, I Mavromichalis, S L. Johnston, P S. Sorrell, I H. Kim, Robert H. Hines, Joe D. Hancock Jan 1996

Use Of Sorghum-Based Distillers Grains In Diets For Nursery And Finishing Pigs, B W. Senne, I Mavromichalis, S L. Johnston, P S. Sorrell, I H. Kim, Robert H. Hines, Joe D. Hancock

Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station Research Reports

Two experiments were conducted to etermine the effects of sorghum-based distillers dried grains with solubles in isocaloric diets for nursery and finishing pigs. Rate and efficiency of gain in nursery pigs were decreased with 45% or more distillers grains. For finishing pigs, efficiency of gain was improved as distillers grains was increased to 60% of the diet, and carcass fatness was increased by about .1 inch at the highest concentration.; Swine Day, Manhattan, KS, November 21, 1996

Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station Research Reports

Thirty six Yorkshire gilts (initially 123 lb BW) were used to investigate the effect of dietary carnitine on growth performance, carcass characteristics, fatty acid oxidation, and enzyme kinetics. Dietary carnitine reduced fat deposition in favor of protein deposition, stimulated fatty acid oxidation, induced the expression of pyruvate carboxylase, increased the capacity of pyruvate carboxylase flux, and decreased the capacity of branch chain keto dehydrogenase.; Swine Day, Manhattan, KS, November 21, 1996

Effects Of High Oil Corn And Fat Level On Growth Performance Of Nursery Pigs, J R. Bergstrom, C J. Samland, Jim L. Nelssen, Michael D. Tokach, Robert D. Goodband Jan 1996

Effects Of High Oil Corn And Fat Level On Growth Performance Of Nursery Pigs, J R. Bergstrom, C J. Samland, Jim L. Nelssen, Michael D. Tokach, Robert D. Goodband

Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station Research Reports

Two studies were conducted to evaluate the effects of adding high oil corn to nursery diets as compared to other sources of fat. The results of both studies suggest that addition of fat to the nursery pig diet, regardless of the source, has no significant influence on growth performance until late in the nursery phase.; Swine Day, Manhattan, KS, November 21, 1996


Evaluation Of Spray-Dried Cheese Food As A Supplemental Protein Source For Weanling Pigs, J A. Loughmiller, P S. Graf, J R. Bergstrom, R E. Muser, Jim L. Nelssen, Robert D. Goodband, Michael D. Tokach, Steven S. Dritz Jan 1996

Evaluation Of Spray-Dried Cheese Food As A Supplemental Protein Source For Weanling Pigs, J A. Loughmiller, P S. Graf, J R. Bergstrom, R E. Muser, Jim L. Nelssen, Robert D. Goodband, Michael D. Tokach, Steven S. Dritz

Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station Research Reports

A growth study was conducted to determine the effects of substituting spray-dried cheese food for spray-dried plasma protein on weanling pig performance. Five dietary treatments included the control diet or diets with cheese food replacing 25, 50, 75, and 100% of the plasma on an equal lysine basis. Day 0 to 14 ADG and ADFI were decreased linearly as spray-dried cheese food increased. However, this decrease was most apparent when cheese food was included at more than 4% of the diet. No effects of cheese food inclusion were seen for F/G from d 0 to 14 postweaning or for ...


Determining The Optimal Isoleucine:Lysine Ratio For The 25 To 50 Lb Pig, J R. Bergstrom, J A. Loughmiller, R E. Musser, W B. Nessmith Jr, Jim L. Nelssen, Michael D. Tokach, Robert D. Goodband, Steven S. Dritz Jan 1996

Determining The Optimal Isoleucine:Lysine Ratio For The 25 To 50 Lb Pig, J R. Bergstrom, J A. Loughmiller, R E. Musser, W B. Nessmith Jr, Jim L. Nelssen, Michael D. Tokach, Robert D. Goodband, Steven S. Dritz

Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station Research Reports

A 21-day growth trial was conducted to determine the isoleucine: lysine ratio necessary to optimize growth performance of the 25 to 50 lb nursery pig reared in a segregated early-weaning (SEW) system. Ten experimental diets, including two levels of lysine (.75% and 1.10% digestible lysine) and five apparent digestible isoleucine:lysine ratios (45, 50, 55, 60, and 65%), were used in a 2 x 5 factorial arrangement. Growth performance was improved by feeding 1.10% rather than .75% digestible lysine. Also, results indicated that the apparent digestible isoleucine requirement for the SEW-reared, 25 to 50 lb pig is approximately ...

Effects Of Split-Nursing Management On Growth Performance In Nursing Pigs, T S. Donovan, Steven S. Dritz Jan 1996

Effects Of Split-Nursing Management On Growth Performance In Nursing Pigs, T S. Donovan, Steven S. Dritz

Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station Research Reports

We evaluated the effects of split nursing the lightest 50% of pigs per litter or the lightest and heaviest 50% of pigs per litter at birth on growth performance until weaning. We did not observe any effects of split nursing on growth performance in pigs from litter sizes < 9 at birth. Additionally, we did not observe a difference in mean ADG or pig weight at weaning. However, we did observe a reduction in the variation of ADG between litters. The resulting decrease in variation leads to approximately a 55% (1.3 vs 3.0) reduction in pigs weighing less than 8 lb at weaning. We conclude that the greatest economic benefits are derived from split nursing the lightest 50% of pigs from litter sizes greater than or equal to 9.; Swine Day, Manhattan, KS, November 21, 1996

The Effect Of Ingredient Processing And Diet Complexity On Growth Performance Of The Segregated Early-Weaned Pig, K Hongtrakul, J R. Bergstrom, I H. Kim, W B. Nessmith, Robert D. Goodband, Keith C. Behnke, Michael D. Tokach, Jim L. Nelssen

Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station Research Reports

A 14-day growth trial was conducted to determine the interactive effects of ingredient processing and diet complexity on growth performance of segregated early-weaned pigs. Three processing combinations were used with either a simple or complex diet formulation in 2 x 3 factorial arrangement. Diets were pelleted (control); the corn was moist-extruded, then the complete diet pelleted (extruded); or the complete diet was expanded then pelleted (expanded). An interaction was observed between ingredient processing and diet complexity. Pigs fed the control or extruded diets had improved growth performance as diet complexity increased. However, pigs fed the expanded diets showed little response ...

Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station Research Reports

We used high-health status, weanling pigs to evaluate six different protein sources as replacements for spray-dried animal plasma. Spray-dried blood meal, spray-dried egg, spray-dried wheat gluten, extruded soy protein concentrate, select menhaden fish meal, and soybean meal each replaced 2.5 or 5.0% spray-dried animal plasma. Pigs fed increasing levels of spray-dried blood meal, spray-dried egg, or soybean meal had decreased ADFI; however, increasing levels of select menhaden fish meal, extruded soy protein concentrate, and spray-dried wheat gluten had no influence or increased ADFI. For the high-health pigs used in this trial, select menhaden fish meal, extruded soy protein ...
