  • Wyckoff, Matthew R. (Kansas State University, 2012)
    Research has shown that nitrogen fertilizer is needed most years to optimize winter wheat yields in Kansas. Anhydrous ammonia (AA) has long been a favorite N fertilizer of producers as it has proven to be a reliable and ...
  • Stephens, Margaret Eryan (Kansas State University, 2015)
    Two studies were conducted to evaluate two animal welfare issues in the beef industry today. The welfare of animals has become a major discussion among consumers and producers. The objective of these studies was to ...
  • Allee, G.L.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1971)
    Pigs medicated 5 weeks with TNA-290 and ASP-250 had statistically greater (P<.05) average daily gains and those medicated with ASP-250 had significantly (P<.05) lower feed conversion rations than non-medicated pigs. Feed ...
  • Allee, G.L.; Koch, B.A.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1976)
    Ninety-six young pigs were used to evaluate various antibacterial preparations on rate and efficiency of gain. Each of the antibacterial preparations increased rate of gain over pigs fed the non-medicated basal diet. There ...
  • Nemechek, J. E.; Tokach, Michael D.; Dritz, Steven S.; Goodband, Robert D.; DeRouchey, Joel M.; Bergstrom, J. R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2013)
    A total of 240 weanling pigs (PIC 327 × 1050, initially 16.1 lb, 3 d postweaning) were used in a 28-d trial to evaluate the effects of benzoic acid and antibiotics on growth performance. Treatments were arranged as a 2 ...
  • Jacela, J.Y.; Tokach, Michael D.; DeRouchey, Joel M.; Goodband, Robert D.; Nelssen, Jim L.; Dritz, Steven S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2007)
    A total of 2,553 pigs (PIC L337 × C22) were used in two experiments in a commercial research barn to evaluate the effects of a commercially available Porcine Circovirus Type 2 (PCV2) vaccine on finisher pig growth rate, ...
  • Lee, D.J.; Dunsford, B.R.; Herkelman, K.L.; Hahn, J.D.; Hancock, Joe D.; Tokach, Michael D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1998)
    Pellet durability index was greatest when animal protein products (dried whey, fish meal, spray-dried blood cells, and a porcine coproduct) were used in place of soybean meal. However, no differences occurred in ADG, ...
  • Stark, C.R.; Goodband, Robert D.; Behnke, Keith C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1991)
    An on-farm mixer uniformity study was conducted to determine if feed could be properly mixed and maintained as it went through a bulk bin and conveying equipment over a distance of 180 ft. in a grower-finisher facility. ...
  • Schoneweis, D.A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1973)
    Streptococcal and staphylococcal infections increase with increases in central farrowing housing and cause serious losses in young pigs. The baby pig may be affected in many ways, such as growths on the heart valves; ...
  • Bergstrom, J.R.; Woodworth, J.C.; Nelssen, Jim L.; Tokach, Michael D.; DeRouchey, Joel M.; Goodband, Robert D.; Dritz, Steven S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2007)
    A nursery study was conducted at the KSU Segregated Early-Weaning Facility to evaluate the effect of dietary arabinogalactan on weanling pig performance. Arabinogalactan is a water-soluble proteoglycan/polysaccharide, most ...
  • Stark, C.R.; Fahrenholz, C.H.; Behnke, Keith C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1991)
    A "rotating drum" type mixer was tested to determine if it could produce a uniformly mixed feed. Feed was manufactured in four separate trials, which examined addition sequence, mixing time, mixer capacity, and liquid ...
  • Kane, Deborah M. (Kansas State University, 2012)
    Dry-processing environments are particularly challenging to clean and sanitize because water introduced into systems not designed for wet cleaning can favor growth and establishment of pathogenic microorganisms such as ...
  • Bergstrom, J.R.; Nelssen, Jim L.; Tokach, Michael D.; DeRouchey, Joel M.; Goodband, Robert D.; Dritz, Steven S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2007)
    A nursery study was conducted at the KSU Swine Teaching and Research Farm to evaluate the effect of increasing dietary astaxanthin (0, 5, 10, and 25 ppm) on weanling pig performance. Astaxanthin is a carotenoid found in ...
  • Nutsch, Abbey L.; Phebus, Randall K.; Riemann, M. James; Schafer, David E.; Boyer, John E.; Wilson, R. Craig; Leising, Jerome D.; Kastner, Curtis L. (1997)
    The effectiveness of a steam pasteurization process for reducing naturally occurring bacterial populations on freshly slaughtered beef sides was evaluated in a large commercial facility. Over a period of 10 days, 140 ...
