  • Bolsen, K.; Ilg, H.; Hinds, M.; Hoover, J. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1982)
    Four alfalfa forages were evaluated: 1) hay; 2) low-dry matter (DM) silage; 3) medium-DM silage; and 4) high-DM silage. All forages were full-fed along with 2 lb of supplement or supplement plus 2 or 4 lb of cracked corn. ...
  • Pretzer, D.D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1982)
    This study examined the economic effects of applying controllable management factors for farrow-to-finish operations. Average producers in Kansas market 7 pigs/litter with an average feed conversion of 4.58. Improvement ...
  • Wheat, J.D.; Suba, M.S.; Allee, G.L.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1982)
    Average farrowing interval and duration were 15.8 and 143.8 minutes for 1766 pigs born in 169 litters. Pigs born later in the litter were larger (r=.43) at birth. The correlation was -.14 between farrowing interval, average ...
  • Tonn, S.T.; Craig, J.V.; Davis, Duane L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1982)
    We compared mating performance and soundness of feet and legs of boars which were reared in group vs individual pens. Individually penned boars consumed more feed from 6 to 12 weeks of age and were heavier at 12 weeks of ...
  • Blecha, Frank; Pollmann, D.S.; Nichols, David A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1982)
    The stress of weaning lowers cellular immune reactivity in 2-, 3- and 4-week-old pigs. However, pigs weaned at 5 weeks of age do not exhibit altered cell-mediated immune reactivity. Those changes could alter disease ...
  • Pollmann, D.S.; Smith, J.E.; Stevenson, Jeffrey S.; Schoneweis, D.A.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1982)
    Gleptosil, a commercial iron product, was compared with iron dextran for the prevention of iron deficiency anemia in young pigs. Using 26 litters, pigs (within each litter) were randomly allotted to one of the three ...
  • George, H.C.; Spillman, C.K.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1982)
    Accurate and concise heat loss analysis is available through a computer program to help producers. The economic benefit of insulating a new structure or increasing the insulation level of each of the building parts (ceiling, ...
  • Davis, Duane L.; Scmidt, W.E.; Stevenson, Jeffrey S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1982)
    Injecting gilts with 10 cc’s combiotic at artificial insemination did not improve farrowing rate or litter size.
  • Henry, S.C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1982)
    Among the many changes in the swine industry during the past two decades, the concept of "Herd Health Programs" came to be. Still a buzz word with poorly defined activities, "Herd Health Programs" are part of our industry. ...
  • Simms, D.D.; Odde, Kenneth G.; Corah, L.R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1982)
    In three field trials, we removed calves from 187 beef cows for 48 hours at the beginning of the breeding season to determine the effect on the cows' cycling activity, conception rate, and pregnancy rate. When calves ...
  • Corah, L.R.; Busby, W.D.; Riley, Jack G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1982)
    One hundred two steers were used to study the effect of Avoparcin on the performance of grazing steers. Four desired dosages -- 0. 200, 400. and 600 mg/head/day -- were compared in a self-fed mineral mix. Feeding Avoparcin ...
  • Lomas, Lyle W. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1982)
    Cattle fed Bovatec consumed 17.4% less feed and were 17.7% more efficient than controls, with no effect on gain. Ralgro implants improved gain 12% and feed efficiency 6.9%, with no effect on feed intake. Bovatec and ...
  • Lomas, Lyle W. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1982)
    Steers fed 100 mg or 200 mg of Bovatec per head daily while grazing bromegrass gained 16.4% and 23.9% faster, respectively, during 112 days of grazing than did controls.
  • Lomas, Lyle W. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1982)
    Cattle fed Bovatec consumed 18.3% less feed and were 19.4% more efficient in feed conversion than controls, with no effect on gain. Synovex-S implants improved gain by 8.2% with no effect on feed intake and feed efficiency. ...
  • Corah, L.R.; Riley, Jack G.; Pope, Ronald V. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1982)
    Steers fed 200 mg of Lasalocid per day while grazing bromegrass pasture gained 7.6% faster than non-medicated controls; however, this difference was not statistically significant.
  • Nuzback, L.J.; Pollmann, D.S.; Behnke, Keith C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1982)
    Sixteen pregnant crossbred sows (second parity) were employed in a digestion trial to evaluate the effect of particle size and physical form of sun-cured alfalfa. The treatment consisted of 1/4 inch meal, 1/4 inch pelleted, ...
  • Lomas, Lyle W. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1982)
    COMPUDOSE (an estradiol removable implant) increased steer gains during 202 days of grazing by 11.4%. Ralgro implants (once at the beginning of the study) increased gain 8.5%. Steer performance on the two implants ...
  • Katz, M.P.; Bartley, E.E.; Pressman, E.S.; Nagaraja, T. G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1982)
    Rumensin with or without Bloatguard was fed to rumen-fistulated cattle grazing lush alfalfa pasture. Although Rumensin alone or in combination with low doses of Bloatguard reduced bloat, it was not completely effective. Hence, ...
  • Pollmann, D.S.; Koch, B.A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1982)
    Two studies using a total of 64 starter pigs (averaging 16-18 lbs initial weight) to evaluate the influence of varying levels of vornitoxin-contaminated wheat on performance was conducted. In both trials it appears that ...
  • Pollmann, D.S.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1982)
    Ninety crossbred pigs averaging 135 lbs. were used to evaluate the effect of reduced bushel weight of wheat on performance. Wheat (59 lb) fed to finishing pigs resulted in growth and feed efficiency similar to a milo base ...
