    At the KSU swine research unit, the aerobic oxidation waste-disposal system continues to function satisfactorily. Though problems and maintenance are minimal, routine observation and maintenance are necessary to prevent ...
  • Keeler, G.L.; Tokach, Michael D.; Nelssen, Jim L.; Goodband, Robert D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1991)
    KSU Lean Gain Assessment is a new program developed at Kansas State University to allow producers to assess the actual lean gain of their pigs under normal farm conditions. The procedure is inexpensive and relatively simple ...
  • Keeler, G.L.; Tokach, Michael D.; Nelssen, Jim L.; Goodband, Robert D.; Dritz, Steven S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1992)
    The KSU Lean Value Marketing Program was developed to assist producers in understanding the quality of their market hogs by marketing on a wholesale cut basis. The program also allowed analysis of the current marketing ...
  • Langemeier, Michael R.; Goodband, Robert D.; Tokach, Michael D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1991)
    On January 1, 1991, a enterprise record program was implemented on 13 swine operations in Kansas. The program evaluates economic criteria in the areas of variable and fixed costs, labor, marketing, and production and is ...

  • 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 ...
