Effects Of Copper Sulfate, Tri-Basic Copper Chloride, And Zinc Oxide On Weanling Pig Growth And Plasma Mineral Concentrations, N W. Shelton, Jim L. Nelssen, G M. Hill, Michael D. Tokach, Robert D. Goodband, Joel M. Derouchey, Steven S. Dritz Jan 2008

Effects Of Copper Sulfate, Tri-Basic Copper Chloride, And Zinc Oxide On Weanling Pig Growth And Plasma Mineral Concentrations, N W. Shelton, Jim L. Nelssen, G M. Hill, Michael D. Tokach, Robert D. Goodband, Joel M. Derouchey, Steven S. Dritz

Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station Research Reports

Two 28-d experiments were conducted to determine the effects of increasing dietary zinc and copper levels on weanling pig performance. In each experiment, 180 weanling pigs (PIC, 21 d of age, 12.5 lb in Exp. 1 and 13.2 lb in Exp. 2) were allotted to 1 of 6 treatments with 5 and 6 replications in Exp. 1 and 2, respectively. Diets were fed in 2 phases (d 0 to 14 and 14 to 28), and the trace mineral premix provided 165 ppm zinc and 16.5 ppm copper to all diets. In Exp. 1, treatments were arranged as ...


Effects Of Commercial Enzymes In Diets Containing Dried Distillers Grains With Solubles For Nursery Pigs, C K. Jones, J R. Bergstrom, Michael D. Tokach, Joel M. Derouchey, Jim L. Nelssen, Robert D. Goodband, Steven S. Dritz Jan 2008

Effects Of Commercial Enzymes In Diets Containing Dried Distillers Grains With Solubles For Nursery Pigs, C K. Jones, J R. Bergstrom, Michael D. Tokach, Joel M. Derouchey, Jim L. Nelssen, Robert D. Goodband, Steven S. Dritz

Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station Research Reports

Two experiments utilizing a total of 530 pigs were conducted to evaluate the effects of commercial enzymes in diets containing dried distillers grains with solubles (DDGS) on nursery pig growth performance. In Exp. 1, 180 pigs (initially 19.9 lb) were used in a 27-d growth trial to compare the effects of Easyzyme, Hemicell-W, and Porzyme in diets containing 30% DDGS on weanling pig performance. The 5 dietary treatments fed were a positive control (corn-soybean meal-based diet), negative control (diet with 30% corn DDGS), and the negative control diet with either 0.05% Easyzyme, 0.05% Hemicell-W, or 0.05 ...


Effects Of Adding Saturated Fat To Diets With Sorghum-Based Dried Distillers Grains With Solubles On Growth Performance And Carcass Characteristics In Finishing Pigs, C Feoli, Donald H. Kropf, S Issa, Terry L. Gugle, S D. Carter, Joe D. Hancock Jan 2008

Effects Of Adding Saturated Fat To Diets With Sorghum-Based Dried Distillers Grains With Solubles On Growth Performance And Carcass Characteristics In Finishing Pigs, C Feoli, Donald H. Kropf, S Issa, Terry L. Gugle, S D. Carter, Joe D. Hancock

Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station Research Reports

Two experiments were conducted to determine the effects of adding sources of saturated fat to diets with sorghum-based dried distillers grains with solubles (DDGS). For Exp. 1, 112 barrows (initially 140 lb) were used in a 69-d growth assay with 7 pigs per pen and 4 pens per treatment. Treatments were a corn-soybean meal-based control and diets having 40% sorghum-based DDGS (U.S. En-ergy Partners, Russell, KS) without and with 5% added tallow or palm oil. Feed and water were consumed on an ad libitum basis until pigs were slaughtered (average BW 283 lb) to allow collection of carcass data ...


Diet Preference And Growth Performance In Weanling Pigs Fed Diets With Morinda Citrifolia (Noni), C Feoli, Joe D. Hancock, Keith C. Behnke Jan 2008

Diet Preference And Growth Performance In Weanling Pigs Fed Diets With Morinda Citrifolia (Noni), C Feoli, Joe D. Hancock, Keith C. Behnke

Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station Research Reports

Two experiments were conducted to determine the effects of adding 5% Morinda citrifolia (noni; Morinda Agricultural Products, Orem, UT) to diets for weanling pigs. In Exp. 1, 48 pigs (initially 9.3 lb) were used in a 29-d preference study. There were 6 pigs per pen and 8 pens total. The pens were equipped with 2 identical feeders (for diets without and with noni puree), and position of the feeders was switched each afternoon to prevent feeder location from affecting diet consumption. The diets were corn-soybean meal-based, pelleted, and had 1.8% lysine for d 0 to 5, 1.6 ...


Amino Acid Digestibility Of High-Protein Corn Dried Distillers Grains With Solubles In Pigs, J Y. Jacela, H L. Frobose, Joel M. Derouchey, Michael D. Tokach, Jim L. Nelssen, Robert D. Goodband, Steven S. Dritz Jan 2008

Amino Acid Digestibility Of High-Protein Corn Dried Distillers Grains With Solubles In Pigs, J Y. Jacela, H L. Frobose, Joel M. Derouchey, Michael D. Tokach, Jim L. Nelssen, Robert D. Goodband, Steven S. Dritz

Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station Research Reports

The objective of this experiment was to determine the digestibility of amino acids (AA) in a high-protein dried distillers grains with solubles (DDGS) product. Six growing barrows (initially 50 lb) were surgically fitted with a T-cannula at the terminal ileum to allow for ileal digesta collection. After recovery, the pigs were randomly allotted to 2 dietary treatments in a crossover design with 2 periods. The first diet contained high-protein DDGS (67% of the diet) as the sole protein source; the second was a nitrogen-free diet for determining basal endogenous AA loss. Chromic oxide was added to both diets as an ...
