  • Jones, C.L.; Starkey, C.W.; Hancock, Joe D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2003)
    A total of 168 pigs (average initial BW of 13.2 lb and avg initial age of 21 d) was used in a 35-d experiment to determine the effects of mannanoligosaccharides on growth performance of nursery pigs fed diets without ...
  • Strahm, T.D.; Harner, Joseph P.; Key, David V.; Murphy, James P. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2000)
    Nine primar,y lagoons and solids storage basins were sampled on Kansas dairies using flush systems. These samples were analyzed for nutrient content of wastewater and sand manure. The manure moisture content in ...
  • Keeler, G.L.; DeRouchey, Joel M.; Goodband, Robert D.; Nelssen, Jim L.; Tokach, Michael D.; Dritz, Steven S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1999)
    Analysis of 41 manure samples from Kansas swine lagoons revealed that nutrient concentrations were higher than previously reported values from the Nebraska Cooperative Extension Service and the Midwest Planning Service. ...
  • Harner, Joseph P.; Murphy, James P. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1994)
    Kansas environmental regulations require dairy producers with more than 300 animal units (215 mature cows at 1,400 lb, or equivalent weight) to be able to store the manure scraped from freestalls, lots, alleys, and ...
  • Tokach, Michael D.; Goodband, Robert D.; Nelssen, Jim L.; Dritz, Steven S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1999)
    Finishing pig diets are commonly supplemented with copper, zinc, iron, and manganese with large margins of safety compared to those suggested by NRC requirements. In this study, pigs were fed a control diet that provided ...
  • Skaar, G.R.; Boyle, Elizabeth A. E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2011)
    Beef jerky is a popular meat snack that is simple to recognize and define. The USDA Food Standards and Labeling Policy Book (FSLPB) allows labeling use of the title “jerky” to a product that has been dried to a ...
  • Schroeder, Ted C.; Mintert, J. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1999)
    Cash hog markets are declining in importance, and use of formula pricing of market hogs is increasing. Producers need more information to assist them in price discovery and formula price negotiations with pork packers. ...
  • Dhuyvetter, Kevin C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2000)
    A formula for deriving the price of segregated early-weaned (SEW) pigs using prices of grain, soybean meal, and market hog was estimated based on return on investment being equal for all three phases of production—farrowing, ...
  • Smith, J.F.; Brouk, Michael J. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2000)
    Mastitis is the most costly health concern in the dairy industry today. Annual losses have been estimated at $180 to 185 per cow. Based on this figure, annual losses for Kansas producers may exceed $15 million. Nationally, ...
  • Vargas, G.; Michaud, J. P.; Nechols, James R. (2012)
    We followed lifetime trajectories of reproductive allocation in Coleomegilla maculata females of three different size classes produced by rearing beetles on three different daily larval feeding regimes (30 min, 6h or ad ...
  • Mahroof, Rizana M.; Phillips, Thomas W. (2014)
    Cigarette beetles, Lasioderma serricorne (F.) (Coleoptera: Anobiidae), cause significant damage to the multi-billion dollar food and tobacco industries worldwide each year. A non-insecticidal alternative to manage L. ...
  • Groothuis, P.G.; Blair, R.M.; Davis, Duane L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1995)
    We determined the age at which progesterone induced certain responses in the gilt's uterus. The prepubertal maturation permitting each response is being studied currently with the intent of using the information to develop ...
  • White, Bradley J.; Larson, Robert L.; Thomson, Daniel U. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2007)
    Bovine viral diarrhea virus (BVDv) is an immunosuppressive virus affecting cattle in a multitude of ways. The varied presentation makes this disease difficult to identify in cow herds and the signs of a BVD infection ...
  • Mancini, R.A.; Hunt, Melvin C.; Kropf, Donald H.; Hachmeister, K.A.; Johnson, D.E.; Fox, Sean (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2002)
    This study evaluated the combined effects of storage temperature, storage time, display temperature, display time, and fat level on ground beef color. Storage at 32°F minimized discoloration during display compared ...
  • Levis, D.G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1989)
    Farrowing rate can be defined as: 1) the number of mated females that farrow within a contemporary group per total number of MATED females for this group or 2) the number of females that farrow within a contemporary group ...
  • Aubel, C.E. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1955)
    This experiment was designed .to secure information on maximum use of alfalfa meal in protein supplemental mixtures for pigs in dry lot. The experiment on next page reports similar information from pigs on alfalfa ...
  • Aubel, C.E. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1956)
    Since pastures for swine are often poor, inadequate, or unavailable in Kansas, there is a growing appreciation of the value of alfalfa hay or meal in the rations of all swine brood sows (and pigs being fed for market). ...
  • Vargas Vargas, J.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1983)
    Three feeding trials using 480 finishing pigs were conducted to evaluate meal time feeding versus ad libitum feeding. Growth rate and feed required per pound of gain were similar for all treatments. Carcass characteristics, ...
  • Bremer, Dale J.; Ham, Jay M. (2002)
    Soil-surface CO2 flux (R[subscript]s), which is a large component of the carbon (C) budgets in grasslands, usually is measured infrequently using static or dynamic chambers. Therefore, to quantify annual C budgets, estimates ...
  • Bremer, Dale J.; Ham, Jay M. (2005)
