  • Langemeier, Michael R.; Goodband, Robert D.; Tokach, Michael D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1992)
    Approximately 35 swine operations are enrolled in the 1992 Kansas Swine Enterprise Record Program. This program evaluates physical and economic performance and is part of a cooperative record-keeping project with ...
  • Brown, K.R.; Johnson, B.J.; Woodworth, J.C.; Goodband, Robert D.; Tokach, Michael D.; Nelssen, Jim L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2006)
    We determined the effects of supplemental L-carnitine on the insulin-like growth factor (IGF) system in porcine embryonic myoblasts (PEM) from gilts. Forty gilts (BW = 303.6 lb) were allotted to 1 of 4 treatments that ...
  • Steve, Rops; Marty, Heintz; Tokach, Michael D.; Goodband, Robert D.; Nelssen, Jim L.; Dritz, Steven S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1999)
    A total of 1,200 pigs were used to determine whether dietary lysine level fed in the growing phase influenced the response to lysine level fed in the finishing phase. Pigs were fed either an adequate or low lysine level ...
  • Carney, E.E.; Groesbeck, C.N.; Goodband, Robert D.; Tokach, Michael D.; Nelssen, Jim L.; Dritz, Steven S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2005)
    Two experiments were conducted to determine the effects of lactose products and specialty protein sources on feed flow ability as measured by angle of repose. Angle of repose is the maximum angle in which a pile of ingredient ...
  • Murphy, James P.; Harner, Joseph P. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1997)
    Most compacted soils can be used for lagoon liners to achieve seepage guidelines established by the Kansas Department of Health and Environment.
  • Maxson, P.F. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1986)
    Recent promotion of the National Pork Producers Lean Guide to Pork Value has focused attention on providing pork producers with an economic incentive to raise lean, meaty hogs. The packing industry version of this value-based ...
  • Van Wormer, D.M.; Pollmann, D.S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1984)
    A total of 316 crossbred weanling pigs were used in two studies to evaluate the effect of the addition of edible-grade, unbleached soy lecithin on growth in starter pig diets with and without added fat and/or dried whey. ...
  • Van Wormer, D.; Pollmann, D.S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1984)
    A total of 316 crossbred weanling pigs were used in two studies to evaluate the effect of the addition of edible-grade, unbleached soy lecithin on growth in starter pig diets with and without added fat and/or dried whey. ...
  • Eckert, T.E.; Allee, G.L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1973)
    Three growth trials and two nitrogen retention trials were conducted with 118 growing pigs to determine the limiting amino acids in milo. Lysine supplementation of the basal milo diet markedly improved daily gain, feed ...
  • Thulin, A.J.; Allee, G.L.; Pollman, D.S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1984)
    Two 4 x 4 Latin square designs were used with 16 gilts at 10 mo of age and weighing 341 lb (gravid) and 301 lb (nongravid) to determine the limiting nitrogenous factors in sorghum grain protein for adult gravid (70th day ...
  • Hsu, A.; Allee, G.L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1980)
    Seventy-two crossbred pigs averaging 23.5 lb initially and 12 crossbred barrows averaging 31.5 lb initially were used to study the limiting order of amino acids in ALPC for growing pigs in a feeding trial and a nitrogen ...
  • Main, R.G.; Tokach, Michael D.; Goodband, Robert D.; Nelssen, Jim L.; Dritz, Steven S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2002)
    Two studies were conducted to measure the biologic and economic effects of weaning age in a three-site production system. Wean-to-finish growth and financial performance improved linearly as weaning age increased up ...
  • Zhang, C.; Li, D.; Nelssen, Jim L.; Davis, Duane L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1990)
    We fed gilts diets containing either additional folic acid throughout gestation (1.5 g/ton, 4.5 lb/gilt daily), additional riboflavin (100 mg/gilt daily) from d 4 to 10 of gestation, both folic acid and riboflavin, or ...
  • Davis, Duane L.; Stevenson, Jeffrey S.; Pollmann, D.S.; Allee, G.L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1984)
    Effects of estrous synchronization and flushing on litter size in gilts were compared on two farms. Estrus in gilts was synchronized with altrenogest for 14 days or estrous cycles were left unaltered (control group). ...
  • Davis, Duane L.; Zhang, Z.; Stevenson, Jeffrey S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1988)
    We tested the effects of feeding 4 or 7.4 lb of a complete gestation diet to gilts during days 0 to 2 or 3 to 10 after first detected estrus (day 0) and mating. There was a tendency (P = .11) for the 7.4 lb/day treatment ...
  • Turlington, L.M.; Corah, L.R.; Allen, Dell M.; Nelssen, Jim L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1986)
    Determination of backfat thickness and loin-eye area in swine is essential for continued genetic progress, and ultimately, pork product acceptance. Leaner, faster growing boars and gilts must be provided by seedstock ...
  • Murphy, James P. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1988)
    Low investment farrowing facilities can be divided into three categories, depending on the level of investment. At the lowest investment level, an individual farrowing shelter that has no floor is utilized. The shelter ...
