  • Davis, Duane L.; Robl, J.M.; Nelssen, Jim L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1979)
    Control of estrus in gilts is theoretically possible by feeding a progestogen for 18 consecutive days. During the feeding period the progestogen suppresses estrus in all gilts and when withdrawn from the feed, all animals ...
  • Davis, Duane L.; Robl, J.M.; Nelssen, Jim L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1979)
    Replacement gilts frequently do not fit smoothly into existing breeding and farrowing schedules because time of estrus cannot be predicted. Being able to program replacement gilts into a breeding herd would improve management, ...

    An on-farm starter trial was conducted to compare the efficacy of a non-sulfa containing antibiotic (Mecadox®) to that of a sulfa-containing antibiotic (ASP-250®). Two hundred and forty pigs weaned at 3 wk of age were ...

    An experiment was conducted to determine the apparent ileal digestibility and standardized ileal digestibility of amino acids and energy of corn distillers meal in pigs. Five growing barrows (initially 150 lb) were allotted ...
  • Jacela, J.Y.; Sulabo, R.C.; DeRouchey, Joel M.; Tokach, Michael D.; Nelssen, Jim L.; Goodband, Robert D.; Dritz, Steven S. (2007)
    This trial was conducted to determine and compare the digestibility of amino acids and energy of soy hulls from two different sources. Five growing barrows (initially 150 lb) fitted with T-cannulas were each fed three ...

    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 ...
  • Woodworth, J.C.; O'Quinn, P.R.; Knabe, D.A.; Tokach, Michael D.; Goodband, Robert D.; Nelssen, Jim L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1998)
    We conducted two experiments to determine the apparent ileal digestibility of amino acids and digestible energy (DE) and metabolizable energy (ME) values for conventionally processed, solvent-extracted soybean meal (SBM) ...
  • Owen, K.Q.; Kats, L.J.; Nelssen, Jim L.; Tokach, Michael D.; Goodband, Robert D.; Dritz, Steven S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1993)
    A total of 367 weanling pigs (initially 11.8 lb and 21 d of age) was used in a 28 d growth assay to determine the appropriate level of lactose needed in phase I diets containing spray-dried porcine plasma (SDPP) for the ...
