    A total of 360 weanling pigs (initially 12.3 lb BW and approximately 18 d of age) was used in a 14-d growth assay to determine the optimal isoleucine:lysine ratio to maximize growth performance. The 12 experimental ...
  • Kats, L.J.; Nelssen, Jim L.; Tokach, Michael D.; Goodband, Robert D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-02-11)
    A total of 744 pigs (initially 12.8 lb and 22 d of age) was used in a 28 d trial to determine the effects of increasing levels of blood meal in the phase II (d 7 to 28) diet. Pigs were allotted by sex and weight ...
  • Owen, K.Q.; Dritz, Steven S.; Tokach, Michael D.; Goodband, Robert D.; Nelssen, Jim L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-04-02)
    A total of 290 early-weaned pigs (initially 7.6 lb and 10.5 d of age) was used to evaluate various levels of spray-dried porcine plasma. Pigs were assigned to one of five experimental diets with either 5, 7.5, 10, 12.5, ...

  • Healy, B.J.; Bramel-Cox, P.J.; Kennedy, G.A.; Hancock, Joe D.; Behnke, Keith C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-04-02)
    A total of 240 weanling pigs (avg initial wt of 11.7 lb) was used to determine the effects of particle size of corn and two sorghum genotypes on growth performance. In addition to the pig feeding experiment, 420 broiler ...
  • Miller, K.A.; Van Bibber-Krueger, C.L.; Drouillard, James S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2013-03-19)
    The cost of roughages is relatively high in comparison to their contribution of nutrients to feedlot diets. Widespread drought has affected roughage supplies in the cattle-feeding regions of the United States, further ...
  • Pulley, S.L.; Wallace, L.D.; Mellieon, H.I.; Stevenson, Jeffrey S. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2012-09-07)
    The objective of this study was to evaluate the effects of equine chorionic gonadotropin (eCG) on various characteristics associated with an effective timed artificial insemination (AI) protocol in lactating dairy cows. ...
  • Pursley, J.R.; Stevenson, Jeffrey S. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-05-20)
    An experiment was conducted to examine the effects of GnRH on the secretion of FSH, LH, estradiol, and progesterone in serum and changes in ovarian structures. Dairy cows were assigned randomly to receive either 100 ...
  • Portaluppi, M.A.; Tenhouse, D.E.; Lloyd, A.; Eborn, D.R.; Kacuba, S.; DeJarnette, J.M; Stevenson, Jeffrey S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-11-29)
    We hypothesized that increasing concentrations of progesterone after artificial insemination (AI) would increase fertility. Our objective was to assess changes in ovarian structures, incidence of ovulation, and change in ...
  • Shirley, John E. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2012-10-04)
    The present surplus of dairy products has led to a decrease in farm-level milk receipts. Future reductions in the federal milk price support program, together with a predictable increase in feed grain and protein supplement ...
