  • Carlin, R.; Troyer, Deryl L.; Weiss, Mark L.; Schultz, Bruce D.; Davis, Duane L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2006)
    Since their discovery in 2000, pig umbilical cord stem cells have been studied at KState. The studies have been expanded to included other species, including humans. In addition, other research groups around the world ...
  • Nicholson, R.I.; Fitzner, G.E.; Hines, Robert H.; Goodband, Robert D.; Hancock, Joe D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1990)
    Thirty-two crossbred gilts averaging 250 /b were selected for the experiment at the conclusion of the finishing phase. Eight of the gilts were slaughtered on d 0 to serve as a pretreatment control group. The remaining 24 ...
  • Sulabo, R.C.; Quackenbush, J.; Goodband, Robert D.; Tokach, Michael D.; DeRouchey, Joel M.; Nelssen, Jim L.; Dritz, Steven S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2006)
    There is almost no information on ideal growth rates for adult boars, but estimates can be made if the relationship between boar weight and age is known. Therefore, this study was aimed to predict growth rates in adult ...
  • De La Llata, M.; Tokach, Michael D.; Goodband, Robert D.; Nelssen, Jim L.; Dritz, Steven S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1999)
    A total of240 growing-finishing barrows (75 to 260 lb) were used to model accretion rates and the lysine:calorie ratio requirement based on lipid and protein content data obtained with a real-time ultrasound. Barrows were ...
  • De La Llata, M.; Tokach, Michael D.; Goodband, Robert D.; Nelssen, Jim L.; Dritz, Steven S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1999)
    A total of240 growing-finishing gilts (60 to 260 lb) was used to model accretion rates and the lysine:calorie ratio requirement based on lipid and protein growth. Real-time ultrasound measurements were used to estimate lipid ...
  • Hsu, A; Allee, G.L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1983)
    A rapid in vitro method has been developed to predict digestibilities of nitrogen, dry matter (DM) and energy in feed ingredients and mixed diets for swine. A total of 21 samples, including nine feed ingredients and 12 ...
  • Hsu, Ali; Allee, G.L.; Pollmann, D.S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1983)
    Nine individual feed ingredients and 12 mixed diets were used in an attempt to select the most suitable regression equation for predicting energy value and nitrogen digestibility from chemical analyses. Samples were analyzed ...
  • Craig, J.V. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1982)
    Pregnant sow housing varies considerably from area to area in Australia. Thus, group housing amounts to less than 10% in Queensland, but probably exceeds 50% in Victoria. Confinement of pregnant sows in individual stalls ...
  • 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 ...
  • Schoneweis, D.A.; Bartel, R.K.; Stuart, J.G.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1971)
    Fourteen litters (120 pigs) were used to study effects of iron injections on day one or day four after birth. No differences were detected in weight gains, hematological values of hemoglobin, packed cell volume, or red ...
  • Phillips, R.M.; Anderson, N.V. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1979)
    Work on colibacillosis has been concentrated on isolating and identifying enterotoxigenic E. coli from specimens submitted to the Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory. Strains of enterotoxigenic E. coli isolated in the laboratory ...
  • Schroeder, Ted C.; Goodwin, B.K. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1990)
    The short- and long-run daily price relationships between cash and futures markets for live hogs were examined over the 1975-89 period. Price discovery generally originates in the futures market with about 65% of new ...
  • McCoy, J.H.; Price, R.V.; Manuel, M.L.; Ward, C.E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1975)
    Recent increases in specialized production of feeder pigs has stimulated interest in various methods of pricing pigs outside traditional marketing channels. Most such methods are either negotiated pricing or formula ...
  • Koch, B.A.; Lafferty, D.T.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1970)
    This progress report covers only growth rate and feed efficiency of pigs the first 73 days of one feeding trial. Replacing soybean meal with either dry-roasted whole soybeans or pressure-extruded, whole soybeans did not ...
  • Lewis, A.J.; Jones, D.B.; Giesemann, M.A.; Healy, B.J.; Hancock, Joe D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1990)
    One hundred weanling pigs (16.5 lb avg initial wt) were used in a 35-d growth assay to determine the effects of processing method (roasting in a Roast-A-Tron roaster vs extrusion in an Insta-Pro extruder) on the nutritional ...
  • Kim, I.H.; Hancock, Joe D.; Burnham, L.L.; Kennedy, G.A.; Nichols, David A.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1994)
    One-hundred twenty nine primiparous sows were used to determine the effects of alternative processing procedures and feeding systems on the nutritional value of sorghum grain-based diets for lactating sows. Treatments ...
  • Langemeier, Michael R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1991)
    Recently, there has been a renewed interest in contract hog production. Contractors are looking for an effective means to expand production or utilize excess feed production capacity. Producers enter contracts to minimize ...
  • 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, 1975)
    Seventy-two pigs, 30 days old averaging 17 pounds initially, were used to evaluate lysine additions to 16 and 18 percent protein fortified corn-soybean meal diets. Adding 0.1% or 0.2% L-lysine to the 16% protein diet ...
  • Hines, Robert H.; Koch, B.A.; Nichols, David A.; Turlington, L.M.; Goodband, Robert D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1987)
