  • Jensen, M.A.; Blecha, Frank; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1983)
    Housing pigs in a thermal stress environment reduced gain, intake and feed efficiency. Cell mediated immunity responses were lower under the constant heat stress as well as when the temperature was lowered to a thermal ...
  • Blecha, Frank; Pollmann, D.S.; Nichols, David A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1983)
    Pigs weaned at 3 weeks of age and regrouped with unfamiliar individuals had a 4-fold increase in plasma cortisol when compared to pigs that remained in a litter group. However, cellular measures of immune function were not ...
  • Keeler, G.L.; Pollmann, D.S.; Blecha, Frank; Broce, A.B.; Wooten, E.L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1983)
    Twenty -eight pigs were used to evaluate the effect the sarcoptic mange mite infestation on growth and immunity of growing-finishing pigs. Although mange mite infestation did not affect gain, the white blood cell counts ...
  • McVey, D.S.; Elliot, G.S.; Kennedy, G.A.; Chengappa, M. M.; Anderson, N.V.; Schoneweis, D.A.; Hervey, M.M.; Cowan, S.M.; Hancock, Joe D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1991)
    Twenty four pigs were weaned immediately at farrowing, reared artificially for 21 d, and then used in a 35-d nursery experiment to determine the effects of essential fatty acid deficiency on immune function. Treatments were: ...

  • Shi, Jishu N.; Chengappa, M. M.; McVey, D.S.; Blecha, Frank; Goodband, Robert D.; Nelssen, Jim L.; Tokach, Michael D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1993)
    Nonspecific immunity is usually lower in young pigs than adults. Consequently, enhancing the young pig's nonspecific immune capability may be beneficial for the health and performance of early-weaned pigs. Twenty, 9-d-old, ...
