  • Koch, B.A.; Kropf, Donald H.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1968)
    The need for zinc in swine rations has been firmly established. Likewise the inter-relationships between dietary zinc and other minerals, especially calcium, have been well authenticated. However, there are still many ...
  • Greig, J.K.; Spillman, C.K.; Koch, B.A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1982)
    Exhaust air from a Kansas State University swine-farrowing house provides CO2 and possibly other gases that are being used by vegetable plants in a KSU greenhouse. In addition, a rock-storage system reduces fuel requirements ...
  • Greig, J.K.; Spillman, C.K.; Koch, B.A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1981)
    Exhaust air from a Kansas State University swine-finishing house provides C02 and possibly other gases that are being used by vegetable plants in a KSU green house. In addition, a rock-storage system reduces fuel requirements ...
  • Chengappa, M. M.; Vorhies, M.W.; Dritz, Steven S.; Nelssen, Jim L.; Tokach, Michael D.; Goodband, Robert D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1993)
    Seventy pigs, 7 to 10 d of age, were randomly selected by litter of origin from a commercial farm in Northeast Kansas to compare the growth and microbiology of nonmedicated, segregated, early-weaned pigs to controls ...
  • Koch, B.A.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1970)
    Mixing litters after weaning did not significantly affect rate of gain or efficiency of growing pigs. Weight gains were similar (1.57 or 1.49) for mixed litters and intact litters during a 28-day post-weaning trial.
  • Hildabrand, B.M.; Burkey, T.E.; Skjolaas, K.A.; Johnson, B.J.; Minton, J. Ernest; Dritz, Steven S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2006)
    Weaned pigs (n = 240; initial BW 13.5 lb) were used in a 28-d growth study. Pigs were blocked by sex and BW, and were assigned randomly to 1 of the 5 dietary treatments: control (no added antimicrobials or yeasts), Neo- ...
  • Hildabrand, B.M.; Neill, C.R.; Burkey, T.E.; Johnson, B.J.; Minton, J. Ernest; Dritz, Steven S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2004)
    A total of 210 pigs were used in a 28-d growth study to evaluate the effects of feeding the combination antibiotic neomycin and oxytetracycline (Neo-Terra), different rates of BIOSAF yeast (0.15% or 0.3%), and the combination ...
  • Hildabrand, B.M.; Burkey, T.E.; Skjolaas-Wilson, K.A.; Johnson, B.J.; Minton, J. Ernest; Dritz, Steven S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2005)
    A total of 280 pigs were used in a 28-d growth study to evaluate the effects of feeding the antimicrobial carbadox, BIOSAF (0.4%), and the combination of carbadox and BIOSAF yeast (0.15%) in nursery pig diets. Over the ...
  • Wooten, E.L.; Broce, A.B.; Blecha, Frank (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1985)
    Two trials were conducted to determine the effect of sarcoptic mange on growth performance of pigs. Results from previous experiments with weaned pigs artificially infested with sarcoptic mites indicated no alteration of ...
  • Swanson, J.A.; Hancock, Joe D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1989)
    Two hundred fifty-five pigs, weaned at 4 wk of age, were used in an experiment to compare the efficacy of Bacillus subtilis and antibiotics as growth promoters for swine from nursery to finishing. Treatments were a ...
  • Stevenson, Jeffrey S.; Kluber, E.F. III; Minton, J. Ernest; Davis, Duane L.; Hunt, Melvin C.; Pollmann, D.S.; Nelssen, Jim L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1986)
    Two experiments were conducted to examine the effects of a synthetic progestogen (altrenogest) on growth and carcass characteristics of boars. Altrenogest inhibited both the growth of the testes and the pubertal rise in ...
  • Anderson, N.V.; King, C.A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1987)
    Germfree piglets rapidly develop pneumonia after Haemophilus pleuropneumoniae is inoculated into the lung, providing a basis of comparison for future studies of pneumonia in SPF and conventionally reared piglets.
  • Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1982)
    Three feeding trials were conducted to compare soft winter wheat with hard winter wheat for finishing swine. In each trial, soft wheat diets supported weight gains and feed/gain ratio equal to those observed for pigs fed ...
  • Connor, J.F. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1991)
    As the swine industry matures, profit margins will decrease. Control of the major factors affecting feed cost will drive the system. Upgrading or maintaining health will be a major emphasis, because disease agents and ...
  • Cowman, G.L.; Deyoe, C.W.; Koch, B.A.; Pfost, H.B.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1968)
    This paper is a progress report of a research project initiated this past year designed to study the effects of heat and pressure processing of sorghum grain on the performance of swine. The theoretical reasoning behind ...
  • Schroeder, Ted C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1988)
    This study examined the frequency of profitable, short, hedging opportunities that have been available to feeder pig finishers in recent years. The results indicate that there have been periods offering frequent opportunities ...
  • Nelssen, Jim L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1986)
    The increased occurrence of early weaning (4 weeks of age or less) of pigs has resulted in increased problems with a postweaning "lag" in many commercial swine units. The nursery is the weak link of most commercial swine ...
  • Allee, G.L.; Riley, Jack G.; Koch, B.A.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1975)
    Two trials involving 105 finishing pigs (initial average weight 125 pounds) and 55 growing pigs (initial average weight 28 pounds) were conducted to determine the nutritional value of high-moisture, acid-treated milo in ...
  • Trotter, M.; Allee, G.L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1976)
    Eighty-seven crossbred pigs (averaging 95 pounds initially) were used to compare the value of sorghum grain harvested with high-moisture and stored in an oxygen-limiting structure with that harvested with high-moisture ...
  • Allee, G.L.; Deyoe, C.W.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1972)
