  • Schroeder, Ted C.; Mintert, J. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1996)
    This study analyzes recent changes observed in pork, farm-to-wholesale and wholesale-to-retail, marketing margins. Although the inflation-adjusted, farm-to-wholesale margin has declined over the last 25 years, ...
  • Tokach, Michael D.; Goodband, Robert D.; Nelssen, Jim L.; Dritz, Steven S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1999)
    The influence of stocking density (7.4 or 6.6 sq ft per pig) and marketing strategy (0, 1, or 2 sorts before closeout) was examined in a commercial production environment. No interaction between stocking density and ...
  • Greig, J.K.; Spillman, C.K.; Koch, B.A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1977)
    Exhaust air from the Kansas State University swine farrowing house provides most of the heat needed in a greenhouse adjacent to it. The air apparently is not toxic to any of the vegetable plants tested. Tomato plants in ...
  • Park, J.S.; Hines, Robert H.; Kennedy, G.A.; DeRouchey, Joel M.; Lee, D.J.; Maloney, C.A.; Cao, H,; Hancock, Joe D.; Behnke, Keith C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1998)
    Overall ADG and ADFI were not affected, but feed efficiency was improved with pelleting and further improvements resulted from expander processing. In a second experiment, enzyme supplementation to mash, but not pelleted, ...
  • Traylor, S.L.; Hines, Robert H.; Lee, D.J.; Johnston, S.L.; Sorrell, P.; Hancock, Joe D.; Behnke, Keith C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1998)
    Expander processing of corn-, sorghum-, wheat-, and wheat midds-based diets improved nutrient digestibility in growing pigs and, thus, the apparent digestible energy concentration in the diets. This new feed manufacturing ...
  • Rowland, W.W.; Langemeier, Michael R.; Featherstone, Allen M.; Schurle, Bryan W. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1996)
    To remain competitive, hog operations will need to continue to improve production efficiency and manage costs. Kansas Farm Management Association data from 1992 to 1994 were used to measure technical, economic, and overall ...
  • Koch, B.A.; Allee, G.L.; Schoneweis, D.A.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1975)
    Ten mg. of iron per day fed orally 24 days in addition to 150 mg. injected when pigs were 3 days old did not significantly increase Hb of baby pigs. Neither did it increase average daily gain or weight-per-day-of-age at ...
  • Richert, B.T.; Gugle, Terry L.; Hines, Robert H.; Hancock, Joe D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1992)
    Two experiments were conducted to determine the nutritional value of extruded corn, sorghum, and soybean meal (SBM) for nursery-age pigs. Experiment 1 involved 180 weanling pigs, with an average age of 22 d and average ...
  • Richert, B.T.; Gugle, Terry L.; Hines, Robert H.; Hancock, Joe D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1992)
    Eighty barrows (113.7 lb average initial weight) were used to determine the effects of extruding corn, sorghum, wheat, and barley on growth performance, carcass merit, nutrient digestibility, and changes in stomach ...
  • Richert, B.T.; Hines, Robert H.; Hancock, Joe D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1992)
    Two experiments were conducted to determine the effects of extruding sorghum and soybeans for weanling pigs. The first experiment involved 66 piglets with an average age of 19 d and average weight of 10.8 lb. Two diets ...
  • Mills, C.G.; Gugle, Terry L.; Hines, Robert H.; Hancock, Joe D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1993)
    One hundred-seventeen primiparous sows were used to determine the effects of extruded sorghum grain and soybeans in lactation diets on sow and litter performance. The sows were fed a sorghum-soybean-based diet with the ...
  • Gugle, Terry L.; Hines, Robert H.; Hancock, Joe D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1991)
    One hundred forty-four finishing pigs (124 lb avg initial wt) were used to determine the effects of extruding sorghum, soybean meal (SBM), and whole soybeans on growth performance and nutrient digestibility. Treatments ...
  • Gugle, Terry L.; Hines, Robert H.; Hancock, Joe D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1991)
    One hundred forty-four finishing pigs (124 lb avg initial wt) were used to determine the effects of extruding sorghum, soybean meal (SBM), and whole soybeans on growth performance and nutrient digestibility. Treatments ...
  • Lewis, A.J.; Reddy, P.G.; Jones, D.B.; Giesemann, M.A.; Hancock, Joe D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1991)
    One hundred fifty weanling pigs (15.4 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 nutritional ...
  • Schroeder, Ted C.; Jones, J.M.; Nichols, David A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1988)
    A survey of feeder pig sales was conducted at two Kansas feeder pig auctions during the spring and summer of 1988. Several factors were identified that helped explain a large portion of the short-run price differentials ...
