  • Dhuyvetter, Kevin C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2000)
    A formula for deriving the price of segregated early-weaned (SEW) pigs using prices of grain, soybean meal, and market hog was estimated based on return on investment being equal for all three phases of production—farrowing, ...
  • Groothuis, P.G.; Blair, R.M.; Davis, Duane L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1995)
    We determined the age at which progesterone induced certain responses in the gilt's uterus. The prepubertal maturation permitting each response is being studied currently with the intent of using the information to develop ...

    Farrowing rate can be defined as: 1) the number of mated females that farrow within a contemporary group per total number of MATED females for this group or 2) the number of females that farrow within a contemporary group ...
  • Vargas Vargas, J.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1983)
    Three feeding trials using 480 finishing pigs were conducted to evaluate meal time feeding versus ad libitum feeding. Growth rate and feed required per pound of gain were similar for all treatments. Carcass characteristics, ...

    Methods for measuring concentrations and emission rates of particulate matter (PM) from mechanically ventilated livestock buildings were evaluated in a laboratory facility and in a swine-finishing barn. Concentrations of ...
  • Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1970)
    Various types of mechanical units designed to replace lactating brood sows are available. The Mini-Mor Corporation, Omaha, Nebraska, lent Kansas State University a unit designed to raise 36 pigs in individual cages. We ...
  • Bergstrom, J.R.; Tokach, Michael D.; Dritz, Steven S.; Houser, Terry A.; Nelssen, Jim L.; Goodband, Robert D.; DeRouchey, Joel M. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010)
    Concern about the quality of pork fat has increased in the United States over the last decade, largely because of the increased availability and use of dried distillers grains with solubles (DDGS) in swine diets. The ...
  • Nitikanchana, S.; 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, 2012)
    Fifteen trials were used for meta-analyses comparing the effects of conventional dry (CD) and wet-dry (WD) feeders on growth performance, carcass traits, and water usage of growing-finishing pigs. The meta-analysis indicated ...
  • Jacela, J.Y.; DeRouchey, Joel M.; Tokach, Michael D.; Goodband, Robert D.; Nelssen, Jim L.; Dritz, Steven S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2009)
    A meta-analysis of 4 experiments involving 4,506 pigs was conducted to determine the effects of several commercial enzymes on the growth performance of growing-finishing pigs fed various amounts of dried distillers grains ...
  • Ong, Tze-chow; Allee, G.L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1984)
    Three growth trials and two metabolism trials utilizing 236 pigs were conducted to evaluate the effects of amino acids additions to weanling pig diets and to estimate the methionine requirement of weanling pigs using growth ...
  • Koch, B.A.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1969)
    Anemia as it most frequently occurs in baby pigs usually is caused by an iron deficiency. Iron stored in a baby pig is extremely limited and is quickly used to produce hemoglobin to maintain oxygen-carrying capacity in the ...
  • Koch, B.A.; Stuart, J.G.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1970)
    Three trials were conducted involving 231 head of pigs to determine the efficiency of various methods of providing supplemental iron to baby pigs. All treatment groups were effective in maintaining normal hematocrit values ...
  • Schoenherr, W.D.; Pollmann, D.S.; Kennedy, G.E.; Schoneweis, D.A.; LaForge, R.R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1983)
    Three experiments were conducted with pigs to examine the influence of two antimicrobial agents on growth, blood parameters, the intestinal flora population and the therapeutic action on mycoplasma pneumonia. The pigs were ...
  • Koch, B.A.; Allee, G.L.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1975)
    Growing and finishing pigs consumed from 54 to 64 grams of Microlite per head per day when it was available free choice from a self-feeder. It had no measurable affect on average daily gain, feed consumption, feed efficiency, ...
  • Nichols, David A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1987)
    Swine have a great ability to grow and reproduce in a variety of environments and facilities. This ability is documented by profitable production in both the most elaborate and the most simple facilities. Efficiency and ...
  • Traylor, S.L.; Behnke, Keith C.; Stark, C.R.; Hines, Robert H.; Hancock, Joe D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1994)
    Two experiments were conducted to determine the effects of mix time on diet uniformity and growth performance of nursery and finishing pigs. For Exp. 1, 120 weanling pigs (average initial body wt of 12.1 lb) were used in ...
  • Herrman, T.; Behnke, Keith C.; Loughin, T. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1995)
    Results of this study suggest that carbadox was incorporated uniformly in the feed by mixing. However, the two medicated feed additives containing sulfamethazine did not incorporate uniformly in the feed. The causal mechanism ...
  • Koch, B.A.; Allee, G.L.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1978)
    Two trials were conducted to evaluate the benefits of modifying the KSU swine finishing barn by adding hovers, flooring, or both with and without supplemental heat. In trial 1, pigs with no supplemental heat, hover or ...
