    A total of 208 sows and 288 gilts (PIC Line C29) were used to determine the influence of feeding frequency (2 versus 6 times per day) in gestation on performance and welfare measurements. The experiment was conducted on ...
  • Schoneweis, D.A.; Allee, G.L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1977)
    The experiment suggests that a primary need of the neonatal pig is iron and that hematinics such as cobalt and liver extract are of little value if iron is insufficient.
  • Schoneweis, D.A.; Allee, G.L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1977)
    Giving an iron iron dextran-gentamycin combination to young pigs had no advantages over giving them iron dextran alone, as measured by hemoglobin levels, packed cell volumes, or weight (when 28 days old).
  • Trible, B.R.; Rowland, Raymond R. R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2011)
    Understanding the transmission of porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome virus (PRRSV) is important for developing methods to control and eliminate the virus. In this study, 2 similar experiments were performed ...
  • 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 75 lactating sows were used in a study to determine whether the ratio of total sulfur amino acid (TSAA) to lysine calculated from the NRC (1998) is adequate for lactating sows. Low and high sulfur amino acid ...
  • Koch, B.A.; Allee, G.L.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1975)
    Increasing the alfalfa meal to 30% in a finishing pig diet did not significantly reduce average daily gain when tallow was also added to maintain the caloric density of the ration. Digestibility of dry matter and gross ...
  • Linneen, S.K.; Tokach, Michael D.; DeRouchey, Joel M.; Goodband, Robert D.; Nelssen, Jim L.; Dritz, Steven S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2006)
    Two studies were conducted to test the effect of isoleucine amount and source on nursery pig performance. In Exp. 1, a total of 194 pigs were used in a 10-d study in a research facility to test the effects of isoleucine ...
  • Koch, B.A.; Allee, G.L.; Lipper, R.I.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1975)
    The Kansas State University Swine research Unit's aerobic-oxidation waste disposal system is functioning satisfactorily with minimum maintenance and supervision. Labor requirements are low. Odor is no problem. Waste fluid ...
