    A 21 d growth trial was conducted to evaluate the effects of increasing the apparent digestible tryptophan:lysine ratio on growth performance of the 25 to 50 lb pig raised in a high-health, segregated early-weaning (SEW) ...
  • Schneider, J.D.; Nelssen, Jim L.; Tokach, Michael D.; Goodband, Robert D.; DeRouchey, Joel M.; Dritz, Steven S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2005)
    A total of 182 lactating sows were used in a study to determine the threonine requirement, and the relative difference in resulting performance of lactation diets with high concentrations of crystalline amino acids, ...
  • Schneider, J.D.; Nelssen, Jim L.; Tokach, Michael D.; Goodband, Robert D.; DeRouchey, Joel M.; Dritz, Steven S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2006)
    A total of 163 sows were used in a study to determine the requirement for total sulfur amino acids (TSAA), relative to lysine, during lactation. All experimental diets were cornsoybean meal-based and formulated to contain ...
  • Richert, B.T.; Pettigrew, J.E.; Walker, R.D.; Johnston, L.J.; Blum, S.A.; Tokach, Michael D.; Goodband, Robert D.; Nelssen, Jim L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1994)
    Two hundred-three large white x Landrace or large white x Chester White x Landrace sows (40 or 41/treatment, avg parity 3.7) were used in a 26 d lactation experiment to determine the valine requirement of high-producing ...
  • Smith, J.F.; Harner, Joseph P.; Brouk, Michael J. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2003)
    Metabolic disorders and related health problems are a significant problem on dairy farms, resulting in increased culling and decreased profitability for producers. Early detection and treatment of disorders and disease is ...
  • Shao, Hui; Baffaut, Claire; Gao, Jian’en; Nelson, Nathan O.; Janssen, Keith A.; Pierzynski, Gary M.; Barnes, Philip L. (2013)
    Terraces have been proven to be an effective conservation practice for controlling high soil loss. In large hydrological programs such as the Soil and Water Assessment Tool (SWAT), terrace effects are simulated by adjusting ...
  • Liu, Wenxuan; Danilova, Tatiana V.; Rouse, Matthew N.; Bowden, Robert L.; Friebe, Bernd R.; Gill, Bikram S.; Pumphrey, Michael O. (2013)
    The emergence of the highly virulent Ug99 race complex of the stem rust fungus (Puccinia graminis Pers. f. sp. tritici Eriks. & Henn.) threatens wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) production worldwide. One of the effective genes ...
  • Greer, J.; Rozell, Timothy G. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1997)
    A possible alternative to conventional castration methods is the use of vaccines that can be injected in order to sterilize animals. One promising approach involves the use of a vaccine that causes cattle to produce an ...
  • Danilova, Tatiana V.; Friebe, Bernd R.; Gill, Bikram S. (2014)
    To transfer agronomically important genes from wild relatives to bread wheat (Triticum aestivum L., 2n = 6x = 42, AABBDD) by induced homoeologous recombination, it is important to know the chromosomal relationships of the ...
  • Morrill, J.L.; Dayton, A.D.; Zmolek, A.J.; Vitcenda, M.A. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1984)
    After preliminary experiments, four trials were conducted to develop and test a new feeding program for calves. The program involves the use of a special feed (a prestarter) to encourage calves to eat dry feed and to ...
  • Schoenholz, C.K.; Drouillard, James S.; Armendariz, C.K.; Titgemeyer, Evan C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1998)
    A series of in vitro experiments was conducted to determine the ruminal availability of protein from grains. Procedures were based on assumptions that 1) ruminal availability of protein is first-limiting to microbial growth, ...
  • Zhang, Z.; Davis, Duane L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1989)
    The endometrium (lining of the uterus) functions to support and nurture developing embryos. However, 20 to 30% of pig embryos are lost in early pregnancy. Therefore, we developed methods to study the endometrium. Our ...
  • Naeem, H. A.; Paulon, D.; Irmak, S.; MacRitchie, Finlay (2012)
    Wheat kernel development can be divided into three phases i.e. cell division, cell enlargement and dehydration. Accumulation of gluten proteins continues till the end of the cell enlargement phase. During the dehydration ...
  • Larson, B.L.; Kiracofe, G.H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1990)
    The wide variance in anatomical characteristics among heifers born co-twin to a bull make diagnosis of freemartinism by measurements of vaginal length or the distance between the anus and vulva unreliable. Change in serum ...
  • Smith, M.W; Stevenson, Jeffrey S. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1994)
