  • Bandyk, C.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1986)
    Seventy-five litters of newborn pigs from gilts were given either 20 cc of bovine colostrum or 20 cc of milk replacer through a stomach tube, and their weaning weight, scouring, and survival were compared with those of ...
  • Hollinger, S.; Unruh, John A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1996)
    A survey was conducted to investigate the variety and price per pound of pork products available to consumers. The survey was conducted in the largest store of each of the three leading supermarket chains in Manhattan, ...
  • Fitzner, G.E.; Kropf, Donald H.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1992)
    Forty six barrows were fed a common diet after completing a 35 d growth trial in which 50% received 5 mg/d of pST and the other 50% a placebo injection. At the conclusion of the growing trial (130 lb), the pST-injected ...
  • James, J.E.; Reeser, P.D.; Davis, Duane L.; Straiton, E.C.; Talbot, A.C.; Polge, C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1979)
    A major threat to swine enterprises is the possible introduction of disease when new breeding animals are purchased and introduced. So, methods of introducing new genetic material while minimizing the potential for introducing ...
  • Murphy, James P. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1996)
    Manure nutrients help build and maintain soil fertility. Manure also improves tilth, increases waterholding capacity, lessens wind and water erosion, improves aeration, and promotes beneficial organisms. When wastes include ...
  • Kropf, J.; McCoy, J. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1975)
    Prices for market barrows and gilts began a significant upward trend in July, 1974. By spring of 1975 hog feeding profits had improved substantially over a year earlier. Improved profits would be expected to lead to ...
  • Schoneweis, D.A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1978)
    Marked enlargement and edema of the vulva are often noted in newborn gilts. An accompanying, but less conspicuous, lesion is enlarged, engorged mammary glands. Although not fully understood, the changes are thought to ...
  • Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1969)
    Swine testing stations "performance prove” breeding lines for genetic progress in the swine industry. The phenotype of a boar is a combination of his genetic ability and environment (nutrition, health, and etc.). Thus by ...
  • Traylor, S.L.; Herrman, Timothy J.; Behnke, Keith C.; Hancock, Joe D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1995)
    As test weight was reduced from normal to intermediate (i.e., from 58 to 52 lb/bu), little change occurred in milling characteristics of grain sorghum. However, as test weight was decreased from intermediate to light (52 ...
  • Kluber, E.F. III; Minton, J. Ernest; Stevenson, Jeffrey S.; Davis, Duane L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1986)
    Crossbred male pigs were used to evaluate the influence of a synthetic progestogen on reproductive development. Concentrations of luteinizing hormone (LH) and testosterone in blood serum were reduced while boars were being ...
  • Owen, K.Q.; Weeden, T.L.; Nelssen, Jim L.; Goodband, Robert D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1992)
    An experiment was conducted to evaluate the efficacy of dietary carnitine on growth performance and carcass characteristics of growing-finishing swine. The trial was designed to investigate the response of pigs fed ...
  • Vargas Vargas, J.; Craig, J.V.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1984)
    Twenty finishing pigs were used to evaluate effects of time-restricted feeding on social interactions and feeding patterns of pigs at feeding time. Correlation analysis for pairs of traits, involving feeding activities, ...
  • Schoneweis, D.A.; Allee, G.L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1975)
    Thirty-one litters were used to compare effects of two levels of trace minerals fed dams during gestation on hemoglobin, performance, and health of neonatal pigs. There were no significant differences in number of pigs ...
  • Schoneweis, D.A.; Allee, G.L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1976)
    We compared the effects of two levels of trace minerals fed dams during gestation on the hemoglobin, packed cell volume, performance, and health of 31 litters of neonatal pigs. The dams had been on concrete all of their ...
  • Thulin, A.J.; Allee, G.L.; Harmon, D.L.; Schoneweis, D.A.; Davis, Duane L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1985)
    The transfer across the swine uterus and placenta of [1-14C] octanoic acid, [9,10(n)- H] palmitic acid, and [1- 14C] linoleic acid was studied in five gilts and their fetuses during late gestation, following a single bolus ...
  • Li, D.F.; Reddy, G.; Blecha, Frank; Hancock, Joe D.; Allee, G.; Nelssen, Jim L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1988)
    An experiment was conducted to determine if baby pigs develop intestinal hypersensitivity to dietary soy protein. Challenging nursery pigs with soybean meal following oral infusion of soybean meal from day 7 to day 14 of ...
  • Parcell, J.L.; Dhuyvetter, Kevin C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1997)
    Trends in the size of swine operations in Kansas and the V. S. are toward fewer and larger operations. The number of operations in Kansas and the U.S. continues to decline; however, the number of hogs marketed has ...
  • Dhuyvetter, Kevin C.; Parcell, J.L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1997)
    Productivity has been trending up in the swine industry over the last 15 years. Much of the increased productivity is due to increased pigs/litter and increased market weights. The efficiency of the breeding herd (lit ...
  • Koch, B.A.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1970)
    Growing pigs fed ASP-250 from birth to market gained equally as well as those fed TNT. Feed conversion values were quite similar. Adding a fermentation product or vitamin E to rations did not produce consistently better ...
