  • Koch, B.A.; Cowman, G.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1968)
    Kansas swine growers are quite sure' that corn-fed growing-finishing pigs will outperform those fed sorghum grain. Just as many others feel that sorghum grain is equal to corn in swine rations. Most of the time sorghum ...
  • Koch, B.A. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1962)
    One hundred forty feeder pigs weighing approximately 60 to 80 pounds each and averaging 12 weeks of age were randomly divided by weight into groups of 14 pigs each. The pigs had been vaccinated previously for hog cholera ...
  • Young, M.G.; 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, 2003)
    A retrospective analysis of 25 studies (16 at university and 9 at field research facilities) was conducted to model the response in ADG and F/G to increasing dietary energy density and its effect on profitability. Average ...
  • Balogun, T.F.; Koch, B.A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1976)
    Twenty-four crossbred barrows and gilts averaging 92 lbs. were used to evaluate whole shelled peanut as a protein and energy source for pigs. Pigs used whole peanuts and corn less efficiently than ground peanuts and corn. ...
  • Young, M.G.; Tokach, Michael D.; Goodband, Robert D.; Nelssen, Jim L.; Dritz, Steven S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2003)
    A total of 1,040 pigs (half barrows and half gilts) was used in a 42-day experiment conducted in a commercial research facility to determine the influence of graded levels of added fat on growth performance, feed cost per ...
  • Keeler, G.L.; Pollmann, D.S.; Blecha, Frank; Broce, A.B.; Wooten, E.L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1983)
    Twenty -eight pigs were used to evaluate the effect the sarcoptic mange mite infestation on growth and immunity of growing-finishing pigs. Although mange mite infestation did not affect gain, the white blood cell counts ...
  • Allee, G.L.; Stoner, G.R.; Johnston, M.E.; Nelssen, Jim L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1987)
    This experiment was conducted to examine the influence of season on the response of finishing pigs to practical levels of fat addition. A total of 378 pigs (average initial weight per trial ranging from 83 to 98 pounds) ...
  • Hines, Robert H.; Schoneweis, D.A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1987)
    Two trials involving 262 pigs were conducted to evaluate five worming programs for growing-finishing pigs fed on dirt lots heavily infected with roundworm (Ascarid) eggs. The control pigs (no anthelmentic) were compared ...
  • Smith, J.W.II; O'Quinn, P.R.; Tokach, Michael D.; Goodband, Robert D.; Nelssen, Jim L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1997)
    One hundred twenty crossbred gilts were used in a growth trial to evaluate the effects of increasing dietary energy density and lysine:calorie ratio on growing pig growth performance and subsequent finishing performance. ...
  • Sukhonthasarnpa, S.; Parrish, D.B.; Koch, B.A. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1963)
    The presence of nitrates and nitrites in feed and drinking water of farm animals apparently has caused some serious nutritional problems. This study was to establish more clearly some ways the nitrites interfere with ...
  • Smith, J.W.II; O'Quinn, P.R.; Tokach, Michael D.; Goodband, Robert D.; Nelssen, Jim L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1997)
    Two hundred eighty-eight gilts were used to determine the effects of corn-soybean meal or low-protein, amino acid-fortified diets, formulated on a net energy (NE) basis on growth perforn1ance and carcass characteristics. ...
  • Jacela, Jay Yanoria (Kansas State University, 2009)
    A total of 9,979 pigs were used in 11 experiments to quantify production responses under field conditions in growing pigs to PCV2 vaccination, biofuel co-products and dietary supplemental enzymes. Experiments 1 and 2 were ...
  • O'Quinn, P.R.; Smith, J.W.II; Owen, K.Q.; Blum, S.A.; Nelssen, Jim L.; Tokach, Michael D.; Goodband, Robert D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1998)
    A growth trial \vas conducted to evaluate the effects of added chrOlniu111 nicotinate (CrNic) on growth performance and carcass composition of growing-finishing pi.gs (80 to 230 lb) and to compare 200 ppb of CrNic ...
  • Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1977)
    A feeding trial utilizing one-hundred and twelve growing-finishing Duroc pigs was conducted to evaluate the effect of buquinolate (0, 30, 60, or 90g/t) in their diets on growth, efficiency, and carcass quality. Pigs fed ...
  • Pollmann, D.S.; Simms, D.; Francis, E.; Orwig, T.; Brazle, F. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1982)
    Twelve on-farm trials with a total of 1572 pigs were conducted to evaluate the effect of Flavomycin in growing-finishing swine diets. In three of the twelve trials, average daily gain was increased (P<.06) and in seven of ...
  • Lafferty, D.T.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1971)
    Pigs fed full-fat, processed soybeans (FFPS) in place of soybean meal (SBM, 44% CP) gained adequately and produced carcasses with lean measurements equal to those of pigs fed soybean meal. Backfat and belly fat were ...
  • Trotter, M.; Allee, G.L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1976)
    Eighty-seven crossbred pigs (averaging 95 pounds initially) were used to compare the value of sorghum grain harvested with high-moisture and stored in an oxygen-limiting structure with that harvested with high-moisture ...
