    A total of 280 pigs were used in a 28-d growth study to evaluate the effects of feeding the antimicrobial carbadox, BIOSAF (0.4%), and the combination of carbadox and BIOSAF yeast (0.15%) in nursery pig diets. Over the ...
  • Wooten, E.L.; Broce, A.B.; Blecha, Frank (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-04-22)
    Two trials were conducted to determine the effect of sarcoptic mange on growth performance of pigs. Results from previous experiments with weaned pigs artificially infested with sarcoptic mites indicated no alteration of ...
  • Swanson, J.A.; Hancock, Joe D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-04-15)
    Two hundred fifty-five pigs, weaned at 4 wk of age, were used in an experiment to compare the efficacy of Bacillus subtilis and antibiotics as growth promoters for swine from nursery to finishing. Treatments were a ...
  • Peterson, Kenton W.; Fry, Jack D.; Bremer, Dale J. (2015-05-08)
    ‘Meyer’ zoysiagrass (Zoysia japonica Steudel) is commonly planted on home lawns and golf courses in the transition zone; however, poor shade tolerance limits its widespread use. This study was conducted to determine changes ...
  • Stevenson, Jeffrey S.; Kluber, E.F. III; Minton, J. Ernest; Davis, Duane L.; Hunt, Melvin C.; Pollmann, D.S.; Nelssen, Jim L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-04-22)
    Two experiments were conducted to examine the effects of a synthetic progestogen (altrenogest) on growth and carcass characteristics of boars. Altrenogest inhibited both the growth of the testes and the pubertal rise in ...
  • Maier, Dirk E. Dr. (Kansas State University., )
  • Anderson, N.V.; King, C.A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-04-19)
    Germfree piglets rapidly develop pneumonia after Haemophilus pleuropneumoniae is inoculated into the lung, providing a basis of comparison for future studies of pneumonia in SPF and conventionally reared piglets.
  • Perry, H.B.; Larson, G.H.; Lipper, R.I.; Smith, E.F.; Boren, Fred W. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-04-28)
    Each of two lots was 24’ x 92’, one completely surfaced with concrete; the other, soil except for a 24’ x 16’ concrete feeding floor where the cattle stood to eat from a fence line feeder.
  • Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-04-30)
    Three feeding trials were conducted to compare soft winter wheat with hard winter wheat for finishing swine. In each trial, soft wheat diets supported weight gains and feed/gain ratio equal to those observed for pigs fed ...
  • Fairbanks, G.E.; Hoover, J.D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-03-04)
    Two types of big round balers and a small stackmaker were used to harvest grain sorghum stubble after the grain was harvested during the fall and winter months of 1975. The stubble was about 21 inches high and about 4 ...
  • Connor, J.F. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-04-02)
    As the swine industry matures, profit margins will decrease. Control of the major factors affecting feed cost will drive the system. Upgrading or maintaining health will be a major emphasis, because disease agents and ...
  • Cowman, G.L.; Deyoe, C.W.; Koch, B.A.; Pfost, H.B.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-05-07)
    This paper is a progress report of a research project initiated this past year designed to study the effects of heat and pressure processing of sorghum grain on the performance of swine. The theoretical reasoning behind ...
  • Obuz, E.; Yancey, E.J.; Lawrence, T.E.; King, D.A.; Dikeman, Michael E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-08-06)
    We used an electric belt grill, a forced air convection oven, and an electric broiler to cook steaks from three beef muscles; outside round (biceps femoris), loin strip (longissimus lumborum) and eye round (semitendi ...
  • Keay, L.E.; Kiracofe, G.; Odde, Kenneth G.; Stevenson, Jeffrey S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 2010-12-15)
    One-hundred eighteen heifers were used to determine the effectiveness of Alfaprostol as a heat synchronization agent. Seventy-nine were injected twice (12 days apart) with 6 mg Alfaprostol per head and 39 were not treated. ...
  • Schroeder, Ted C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-04-15)
    This study examined the frequency of profitable, short, hedging opportunities that have been available to feeder pig finishers in recent years. The results indicate that there have been periods offering frequent opportunities ...
  • Bradford, Heather L.; Moser, Daniel W.; Bormann, Jennifer M.; Weaber, Robert L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2014-05-16)
    Reproductive failure is consistently a top reason for culling beef cows from the herd. Culling young females is very costly to commercial producers because a young female hasn’t generated enough income to pay for the ...
