    A total of 239 sows (PIC C-22) were used in this experiment. Sows were randomly allotted to one of the two experimental treatments approximately 5 days before their expected farrowing date. Control sows did not receive any ...
  • Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1980)
    Yorkshire pigs weaned at 5 to 6 weeks and averaging 25 lb were used to determine effects of diets with increased fiber from ground oats, wheat bran, alfalfa meal, or dried beet pulp on performance and diarrhea. The basal ...

    Controlling flies significantly decreased incidence of pinkeye in cattle on native Flint Hill range. There was no difference in the average weaning weight of groups sprayed or not sprayed. However individuals severely ...
  • Smith, J.F.; Harner, Joseph P.; Brouk, Michael J. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2001)
    A trial was conducted during the summer of 2000 to evaluate the effect of freestall building orientation—east-west vs. northsouth— on respiration rates of lactating dairy cows, temperature-humidity index (THI) in the ...
  • Beaty, J.L.; Cochran, R.C.; Lintzenich, B.A.; Vanzant, E.S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1992)
    Fifteen ruminally cannulated beef steers were used in a pasture supplementation experiment to determine the effects of frequency of energy supplementation on intake and digestion of tallgrass prairie forage during early ...
  • Beaty, J.L.; Cochran, R.C.; Lintzenich, B.A.; Vanzant, E.S.; Morrill, J.L.; Brandt, Robert T., Jr.; Johnson, D.E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1993)
    Eight ruminally cannulated steers were used to determine digestion characteristics of soybean meal/sorghum grain supplements containing 12%, 20%, 30%, or 39% crude protein (CP) fed either daily (7X) or three times ...
  • Kats, L.J.; Tokach, Michael D.; Nelssen, Jim L.; Goodband, Robert D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1992)
    A 25 d growth trial utilizing 198 pigs was conducted to determine the influence of fumaric acid and calcium formate on starter pig performance. At weaning (19 d of age and 11.9 lb), pigs were blocked by weight and ...
  • Naab, J.B.; Boote, K.J.; Prasad, P.V.V.; Seini, S.S.; Jones, J.W. (2009)
    Groundnut or peanut (Arachis hypogaea L.) is a valuable food and forage crop in West Africa. It is important to determine yield-limiting factors and to develop suitable management practices to improve groundnut productivity. ...
  • Stuewe, S.R.; Friesen, K.G.; Nelssen, Jim L.; Goodband, Robert D.; Tokach, Michael D.; Unruh, John A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1992)
    When pigs were fed to 230 Ib, high-lean genotype loin eyes had less visual marbling and a higher saturation index (more vivid or intense color) than medium-lean genotype loin eyes. Loin eye chops from high-lean gilts ...
  • Dunn, B.L.; Friesen, K.G.; Nelssen, Jim L.; Goodband, Robert D.; Tokach, Michael D.; Unruh, John A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1992)
