  • Jacela, J.Y.; DeRouchey, Joel M.; Tokach, Michael D.; Goodband, Robert D.; Nelssen, Jim L.; Renter, David G.; Dritz, Steven S. (2010)
    Copper and zinc play important roles in many physiological processes. Dietary copper levels of 5 to 10 ppm and zinc levels of 50 to 125 ppm are generally enough to meet the pig’s nutrient requirement for these processes. ...
  • Jacela, J.Y.; DeRouchey, Joel M.; Tokach, Michael D.; Goodband, Robert D.; Nelssen, Jim L.; Renter, David G.; Dritz, Steven S. (2010)
    There is increasing pressure for livestock producers to minimize the use of antibiotics as growth promoters in food animals. Supplementing beneficial microorganisms in the gastrointestinal tract is one potential ...
  • Flohr, J.R.; Patience, J.F.; Tokach, Michael D.; DeRouchey, Joel M.; Goodband, Robert D.; Nelssen, Jim L.; Dritz, Steven S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2012)
    Pork producers and advisers to the swine industry were surveyed about their knowledge of feed efficiency. The questionnaire was designed to accomplish three objectives: (a) determine the level of knowledge related to ...
  • Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1973)
    Nursing litters given a choice of flavored or unflavored diets responded by consuming more flavored diet. Pre-weaning feeding did alter the preference patterns of the post-weaned pigs. Pigs fed only basal ration as creep ...
  • Murphy, James P.; Harner, Joseph P. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1990)
    Quality feed can be manufactured on farm using hammer or roller mills for particle size reduction and volumetric or weighing devices for proportioning ingredients. An understanding of each of the seven steps involved ...
  • Lewis, Landon L.; Jones, Cassandra K.; Fahrenholz, Adam C.; Goncalves, Marcio Antonio Dornelles; Stark, Charles R.; DeRouchey, Joel M. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2013)
    A total of 180 nursery pigs (PIC 327 × 1050; initially 27.8 lb) were used in an 18-d study to determine the effects of conditioning parameters and feed form on pig performance. All diets were the same corn, dried distillers ...
  • Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1977)
    Forty-eight Yorkshire barrows and 48 Yorkshire gilts were fed separately three protein sequences to a finish weight of 250 to 260 lbs. Barrows gained faster and were more efficient on protein sequence B (16% protein diet ...
  • Waylan, A.T.; Johnson, B.J.; Gnad, D.P.; Woodworth, J.C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2004)
    The objective was to determine the effects of L-carnitine on cell proliferation and on messenger RNA (mRNA) concentrations in the insulin-like growth factor (IGF) system. Cultured porcine embryonic myoblasts (PEM) were ...
  • Hsu, A.; Allee, G.L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1980)
    Three feeding trials involving 96 starter pigs, 48 grower pigs and 48 finisher pigs were used to determine the feeding value of alfalfa leaf protein concentrate (ALPC) for swine. ALPC was substituted for 33%, 66% or 100% ...
  • Hsu, J.; Allee, G.L.; Koch, B.A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1976)
    Fifteen crossbred gilts averaging 115 pounds were fed one of three phosphorus levels 70 days (to 219 pounds average) then their femur and phalange bones were compared. Each group of five gilts had received either 0.40%, ...
  • Schmidt, W.E.; Davis, Duane L.; Stevenson, Jeffrey S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1982)
    KSU breeding records show a higher farrowing rate for gilts that "lock" on the insemination spirette at both inseminations as opposed to gilts that "lock" at one insemination or at neither insemination. Continued research ...
  • Musser, R.E.; Smith, J.W.II; Burum, L.L.; Samland, C.J.; Davis, Duane L.; Goodband, Robert D.; Tokach, Michael D.; Nelssen, Jim L.; Rathbun, Theresa J.; Dritz, Steven S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1997)
    Parity-four sows were fed either 4.0 Ib/d (control, n = 6) or 14.0 Ib/d (high, n = 9) of feed from d 29 to 45 of gestation. On d 45 of ges~tion, sows were slaughtered and uteri collected for fetal and placental measurements. ...
  • Langemeier, Michael R.; Purdy, B.M. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1994)
    Financial performance measures assist managers in making strategic plans and in tracking progress in relationship to a firm's goals. Kansas Farm Management Association data were used to compute benchmark financial ...
  • Allee, G.L.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1972)
    One hundred fifty-three barrows and gilts were used to evaluate flaking of corn, wheat, and sorghum grain for weaned pigs. Flaking increased rate of gain and improved feed efficiency (9 to 10%). Pigs fed corn rations gained ...
  • Luchsinger, S.E.; Garcia Zepeda, C.M.; Chambers, Edgar, IV; Hollingsworth, M.E.; Hunt, Melvin C.; Marsden, James L.; Stroda, Sally L.; Rubio Canas, E.J.; Kastner, Curtis L.; Kuecker, W.G.; Mata, T.; Kropf, Donald H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1995)
    Irradiation and irradiation source had little to no effect on flavor and aroma of boneless pork chops, either frozen or chilled. Coupled with consumer concerns about food safety and well-documented improvement in consumer ...
  • Koch, B.A.; Allee, G.L.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1977)
    Supplemental vitamin C fed at two different levels (550 or 1,100mg, per kg, of diet) did not improve animal performance at the swine research center. Adding apple flavor or sodium bicarbonate did not change results.
  • Koch, B.A.; Allee, G.L.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1976)
    Groups of growing pigs restricted to control feed or feed containing one of 5 commercial flavoring agents or taste enhancers consumed similar amounts of feed and made similar weight gains and similar feed/gain.
  • Rhodes, M.T.; Minton, J. Ernest; Stevenson, Jeffrey S.; Davis, Duane L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1986)
    Nineteen gilts were assigned to receive either 0 or 15 mg altrenogest/day for 14 consecutive days. On the day corresponding to the last altrenogest treatment, gilts not fed altrenogest were injected twice (morning and ...
