    The objective of this experiment was to determine the digestibility of amino acids (AA) in a high-protein dried distillers grains with solubles (DDGS) product. Six growing barrows (initially 50 lb) were surgically fitted ...
  • Allee, G.L.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1971)
    Two experiments involving 214 pigs were conducted to evaluate milo and wheat as the sole sources of amino acids for finishing swine, and the effects of supplementing these grains with lysine and methionine. Without ...
  • Liu, Zifei; Powers, W. J. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2013)
    Ammonia (NH3) and hydrogen sulfide (H2S) emissions from swine production facilities receive considerable attention due to human health and environmental implications. Accurate quantification of farm emissions is essential ...
  • Langemeier, Michael R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1990)
    Estimated historical return distributions for farrow-to-finish, feeder pig finishing, and feeder pig producing operations in Kansas from 1981-1990 were examined. Average returns per head were the highest and downside risk ...
  • Koch, B.A.; Cowman, G.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1968)
    Most authorities agree that the value of a protein source is determined by its content of essential amino acids. On that basis soybean meal compares favorably' with the other commonly fed animal protein sources. However, ...
  • Mosier, J.E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1977)
    From January, 1976, to January, 1977, I served as chairman of a subcommittee of the National Advisory Food &Drug Consultants charged with examining several issues concerned with the "Use of Antibiotics in Animal Feeds". ...
  • Woodworth, J.C.; O'Quinn, P.R.; Knabe, D.A.; Tokach, Michael D.; Goodband, Robert D.; Nelssen, Jim L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1998)
    We conducted two experiments to determine the apparent ileal digestibility of amino acids and digestible energy (DE) and metabolizable energy (ME) values for conventionally processed, solvent-extracted soybean meal (SBM) ...
  • Goodband, Robert D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1989)
    The swine industry is at a crossroads that either mayor may not change the way we produce pork in the future. As we head into the 90's, we are entering a new era in terms of growth promotion and carcass modification,which ...
  • Owen, K.Q.; Kats, L.J.; Nelssen, Jim L.; Tokach, Michael D.; Goodband, Robert D.; Dritz, Steven S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1993)
    A total of 367 weanling pigs (initially 11.8 lb and 21 d of age) was used in a 28 d growth assay to determine the appropriate level of lactose needed in phase I diets containing spray-dried porcine plasma (SDPP) for the ...
  • Owen, K.Q.; Richert, B.T.; Friesen, K.G.; Goodband, Robert D.; Nelssen, Jim L.; Tokach, Michael D.; Dritz, Steven S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1994)
    A total of 350 crossbred pigs (9.0 ± 2 d old and 8.4 lb +f- 2.5 BW) was used to determine the appropriate methionine: lysine ratio in diets for the segregated early-weaned pig. Two lysine levels (1.8 and 1.4%) and five ...
  • Nelssen, Jim L.; Allee, G.L.; Thaler, R.C.; Turlington, W.H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1987)
    A total of 108 21-day-old pigs, weighing less than 10 lb, were utilized in two, 28-day trials to compare the effects of feeding high nutrient-density diets with either added apramycin, neomycin, or carbadox on pig performance. ...
  • Leipold, H.W.; Ely, R.; Schoneweis, D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1978)
    This report documents experimental reproduction of tetramelic arthrogryposis in purebred Yorkshire swine by breeding trials. Data from the trials indigated arthrogryposis may be due to homozygosity of a simple autosomal ...
  • Noll, M.T.; Allee, G.L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1979)
    Four experiments involving 140 pigs were conducted to evaluate cow colostrum and twice-a-day feeding in artificial rearing of baby pigs. Piglets were allowed to nurse the sow for 15 hours after birth and allotted by litter ...
  • Orr, D.E. Jr (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1987)
    Successful swine producers must be adaptable, utilize new technology, and know their herd production levels and costs if they want to alter those production factors that have an economic impact. A summary of the effect ...
  • Koch, B.A.; Allee, G.L.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1975)
    Duroc weaned pigs given a choice of feed containing an aromatic or sugar chose diets containing 5% sugar. The preference pattern was altered by pre-weaning feeding in that pigs tended to consume the initial ration. ...
  • Kropf, Donald H.; Kasten, L.H.; Koch, B.A.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1968)
    Many studies have reported that barrows gain more rapidly than gilts, but gilts excell in carcass muscling and trimness. Recently, considerable interest has been directed toward determining ration protein needs of barrows ...
  • Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1986)
