  • Allee, G.L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1976)
    Two trials with 47 second-and third-litter sows and one trial involving 40 gilts were conducted to evaluate self-feeding a diet containing 96% dehydrated alfalfa during gestation. Sows were maintained in outside lots ...
  • Tribble, L.F. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1966)
    A group of 16 sows was divided after all sows were bred. One group was fed 4 pounds per head per day; the other, 4 pounds per head every other day for 60 days, then 4 pounds per head per day until taken to the farrowing ...
  • Schoneweis, D.A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1973)
    Streptococcal and staphylococcal infections increase with increases in central farrowing housing and cause serious losses in young pigs. The baby pig may be affected in many ways, such as growths on the heart valves; ...
  • Wheat, J.D.; Allee, G.L.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1981)
    Based on the first 76 farrowings recorded, average duration (the time between the birth of the first pig and of the last pig in the litter) was 129.09±7.28 minutes, and the average time interval between pigs was 15.71± 1.02 ...
  • Wheat, J.D.; Suba, M.S.; Dayton, A.D.; Allee, G.L.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1983)
    The average for 1813 farrowing intervals was 16.78 minutes with a standard deviation of 25.37 minutes. Farrowing duration averaged 141.51 minutes, ranging from 11 to 618 minutes. The difference between farrowing intervals ...
  • Murphy, James P. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1988)
    Low investment farrowing facilities can be divided into three categories, depending on the level of investment. At the lowest investment level, an individual farrowing shelter that has no floor is utilized. The shelter ...
  • Koch, B.A.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1969)
    The new K-State facilities for growing-finishing swine seemed ideal to re-evaluate various antibiotics as low-level feed additives. The first trial reported here was with the first pigs fed in the new barn. They also were ...
  • Spillman, C.K.; Robbins, F.V.; Koch, B.A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1976)
    When animals are confined inside buildings, ventilating air is required to remove moisture and odors. Young animals require relatively warm temperatures and do not produce enough heat to offset that lost through walls and ...
  • Davis, Duane L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1981)
    Alternate groups of sows were synchronized, with prostaglandin, to farrow within a certain time or to serve as controls. The objective was to determine if baby-pig survival or litter-weaning weight would be improved by ...
  • Allee, G.L.; Koch, B.A.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1977)
    Gestating Yorkshire sows and gilts were randomly assigned to two dietary treatments immediately after a 25-day breeding season until females were brought to the farrowing house between 105-110th day of gestation. Sows and ...
  • Linneen, S.K.; Benz, J.M.; DeRouchey, Joel M.; Goodband, Robert D.; Tokach, Michael D.; Dritz, Steven S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2005)
    Oxytocin is frequently used to decrease farrowing time and birth interval as an aid to prevent stillbirths, but recent research has shown that oxytocin use can increase the number of pigs stillborn when used too early in ...
  • Wheat, J.D.; Kropf, Donald H.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1975)
    Litters farrowed total 147 (25 in 1971, 23 in 1972, 33 in 1973, 32 in 1974 and 34 in 1975); pigs total 1196, 1102 alive at birth 94 (8%) dead at birth. Line differences in loin eye area, backfat thickness and age (adjusted ...
  • Kropf, J.; McCoy, J. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1975)
    Prices for market barrows and gilts began a significant upward trend in July, 1974. By spring of 1975 hog feeding profits had improved substantially over a year earlier. Improved profits would be expected to lead to ...
  • Spillman, C.K. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1973)
    Interest in environmentally-controlled facilities for swine has been increasing recently. Farrowing in such a facility can be justified for producers who plan to be producing pork for some time. However, many producers, ...
