    Objectives: To compare the effects of porcine circovirus type 2 (PCV2) vaccination on growth rate, backfat depth, and loin depth of pigs in a high-health herd which contained different genetic lines. Materials and methods: ...
  • Andries, K.M.; Schalles, R.R.; Franke, D.E.; Dikeman, Michael E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1996)
    Growth and carcass data from 5 years of a long-term, rotational, crossbreeding project were used to calculate heritabilities and genetic and phenotypic correlations for direct and maternal birth and weaning weight, ...
  • Christmas, R.A.; Spire, M.F.; Sargeant, J.M.; Tucker, Sharon K.; Moser, Daniel W. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2001)
    Breeding soundness examination data on over 1,200 yearling Angus bulls were analyzed to determine heritability of and genetic relationships among breeding soundness traits. Breeding soundness exam procedures were ...
