  • Stevenson, Jeffrey S.; Davis, Duane L.; Pollmann, D.S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1984)
    Crossbred first-Iitter sows in a commercial swine unit were assigned to serve as controls after summer weanings or were fed altrenogest for 7 days or altrenogest for 7 days plus supplemental fat for 14 days after weaning. ...
  • Blecha, Frank; Pollmann, D.S.; Nichols, David A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1982)
    The stress of weaning lowers cellular immune reactivity in 2-, 3- and 4-week-old pigs. However, pigs weaned at 5 weeks of age do not exhibit altered cell-mediated immune reactivity. Those changes could alter disease ...
  • Blecha, Frank; Pollmann, D.S.; Kluber, E.F. III (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1984)
    An experiment was conducted to determine the influence of artificial rearing on the cellular immune response of young pigs. Artificially reared pigs had lower cellular immune reactivity than sow-reared controls. These ...
  • Pollmann, D.S.; Smith, J.E.; Stevenson, Jeffrey S.; Schoneweis, D.A.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1982)
    Gleptosil, a commercial iron product, was compared with iron dextran for the prevention of iron deficiency anemia in young pigs. Using 26 litters, pigs (within each litter) were randomly allotted to one of the three ...
  • Blecha, Frank; Pollmann, D.S.; VanWormer, D.M. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1984)
    An experiment was conducted to determine the influence of creep feeding on cellular immunity in young pigs. Creep feeding from 10 days of age to weaning did not influence phytohemagglutinin skin-test responses.
  • Christianson, S.; Allee, G.L.; Pollmann, D.S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1984)
    Twelve crossbred sows averaging 337 lb were used to determine apparent nutrient digestibility of three fat sources. Fat sources evaluated were soybean oil, a 85% dry-fat product composed of animal and vegetable fat, and a ...
  • LaForge, R.R.; Pollmann, D.S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1984)
    A Bacillus subtilus probiotic was tested using a total of 52 sows and 516 baby pigs to determine the effect on enteric colibacillosis control and on host bacterial population. The probiotic did not affect sow or baby pig ...
  • Kluber, E.F. III; Pollmann, D.S.; Blecha, Frank (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1983)
    Two trials were conducted with a total of 112 artificially reared pigs to evaluate the effect feeding Streptococcus faecium. The areas studied were growth and feed efficiency, mortality rate, daily scour score, blood ...
  • Nuzback, L.J.; Pollmann, D.S.; Behnke, Keith C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1982)
    Sixteen pregnant crossbred sows (second parity) were employed in a digestion trial to evaluate the effect of particle size and physical form of sun-cured alfalfa. The treatment consisted of 1/4 inch meal, 1/4 inch pelleted, ...
  • Blecha, Frank; Pollmann, D.S.; Nichols, David A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1983)
    Pigs weaned at 3 weeks of age and regrouped with unfamiliar individuals had a 4-fold increase in plasma cortisol when compared to pigs that remained in a litter group. However, cellular measures of immune function were not ...
  • 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 ...
  • Pollmann, D.S.; Koch, B.A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1982)
    Two studies using a total of 64 starter pigs (averaging 16-18 lbs initial weight) to evaluate the influence of varying levels of vornitoxin-contaminated wheat on performance was conducted. In both trials it appears that ...
  • Pollmann, D.S.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1982)
    Ninety crossbred pigs averaging 135 lbs. were used to evaluate the effect of reduced bushel weight of wheat on performance. Wheat (59 lb) fed to finishing pigs resulted in growth and feed efficiency similar to a milo base ...
  • Christianson, S.; Allee, G.L.; Pollmann, D.S.; Nelssen, Jim L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1984)
    Three feeding trials utilizing 185 sows (149 primiparous and 36 multiparous) were conducted to evaluate the effects of feeding various levels and sources of supplemental energy during lactation and from weaning to rebreeding ...
  • Wooten, E.L.; Broce, A.B.; Pollmann, D.S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1984)
    A trial was conducted to determine the efficacy of fenvalerate (Ectrin®) for control of sarcoptic mange mites in swine. Artificially infested pigs were treated with two sprayings of Ectrin at 0.05% concentration with 1 wk ...
  • Nichols, David A.; Pollmann, D.S.; Olson, W.G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1982)
    Records of approximately 11,000 boars and 6,000 gilts enrolled in the KSU on-farm swine test program were summarized. Both boars and gilts reached 220 lbs 5 days sooner in 1980 than 1970. Of the traits evaluated, the largest ...
  • 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 ...
