  • Greer, J.G.; Davis, Duane L.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1977)
    Forty-two boars averaging 67 lbs. were used to study how various levels of calcium and phosphorus in their feed affected their development. Calcium-to phosphorus ratios of 1.2 to 1 were maintained in all treatment diets, ...
  • Friesen, K.G.; Boland, Michael A.; Schinckel, A.P.; Nelssen, Jim L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1994)
    Data from two experiments were used to determine the feed cost per I of lean gain for high-lean growth gilts fed various digestible lysine levels (.54 to 1.04%). The cost for producing 1 lb of lean increased as live weight ...
  • Johnston, S.L.; Hines, Robert H.; Traylor, S.L.; Hancock, Joe D.; Behnke, Keith C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1995)
    Growing/finishing gilts were fed two-, three-, four-, or five-phase diet regimens from 77 to 276 lb. The diets were mixed in either a conventional, horizontal ribbon mixer or a 9 ft auger. No interactions occurred among ...
  • Kropf, Donald H.; Bergkamp, J.L.; Berroth, J.N. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1969)
    This study compared various methods of evaluating carcasses. Data from 57 barrows on feeding trials for a barrow contest at the 1968 Kansas State Fair in Hutchinson were used.The barrows went on test weighing approximately ...
  • Elliott, B.D.; Langemeier, Michael R.; Featherstone, Allen M. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1994)
    Net cash flow measures the amount of cash remaining after all cash expense obligations are satisfied. This cash is available for additional farm investment, off-farm investment, family living, and additional debt repayment. ...
  • Frank, R.K.; Vorhies, M.W. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1991)
    Causes of pre- and postweaning diarrhea, pneumonia, and bacterial septicemia in pigs were summarized for fiscal year 1991 (July, 1990 to June, 1991) for submissions to the Kansas State University Veterinary ...
  • Frank, R.K.; Vorhies, M.W. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1991)
    Causes of pre- and postweaning diarrhea, pneumonia, and bacterial septicemia in pigs were summarized for fiscal year 1991 (July, 1990 to June, 1991) for submissions to the Kansas State University Veterinary Diagnostic ...
  • Blecha, Frank; Pollmann, D.S.; Nichols, David A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1982)
    The stress of weaning lowers cellular immune reactivity in 2-, 3- and 4-week-old pigs. However, pigs weaned at 5 weeks of age do not exhibit altered cell-mediated immune reactivity. Those changes could alter disease ...
  • Blecha, Frank; Pollmann, D.S.; Kluber, E.F. III (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1984)
    An experiment was conducted to determine the influence of artificial rearing on the cellular immune response of young pigs. Artificially reared pigs had lower cellular immune reactivity than sow-reared controls. These ...
  • Mintert, James (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1987)
    Testing for a demand change was done using pork and beef demand models estimated over the 1950-1984 period. Results suggest that a structural change has taken place in both beef and pork demand. The beef demand change, ...
  • Heber, A.J.; Stroik, M. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1987)
    Eleven finishing units were surveyed to study the characteristics of aerial dust and factors that influence dust concentrations. Feed dust was the major portion of the total dust mass and can be minimized with feed additives, ...
  • Kastner, Curtis L.; Choi, Y.I.; Kropf, Donald H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1987)
    Five pork carcasses were used to determine the effects of hot boning and various combinations of salt (0, 1.5, or 3.0%) and a phosphate mixture (0 or 0.5%) on functional, processing, and storage characteristics of preblended ...
  • Kastner, Curtis L.; Choi, Y.I.; Kropf, Donald H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1987)
    Five pork carcasses were used to determine the effects of hot boning and various combinations of salt (0, 1.5, or 3.0%) and a phosphate mixture (0 or 0.5%) on bacteria, TBA (measure of fat rancidity), and pH values of ...
  • Webster, M.J.; Woodworth, J.C.; De La Llatta, M.; Said, N.; Goodband, Robert D.; Tokach, Michael D.; Nelssen, Jim L.; Dritz, Steven S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2000)
    A total of 1,200 gilts was used to evaluate the effects of replacing conventionally processed soybean meal with extruded-expelled soybean meal on finishing pig growth performance. Dietary treatments were arranged in a ...
  • Balogun, T.F.; Koch, B.A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1973)
    As little as 10% of coffee grounds depressed the feed intake and growth rate of growing pigs and finishing pigs. Apparently, reduced growth rate resulted from lack of palatability rather than any toxic factor in the coffee ...
  • Kats, L.J.; Laurin, J.L.; Tokach, Michael D.; Nelssen, Jim L.; Goodband, Robert D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1992)
    A total of 298 weanling pigs (initially 12.11b and 19 d of age) was used in a 25-<1 growth trial to examine the influence of various combinations of spray-dried porcine plasma (SDPP) and spray-dried blood meal (SDBM) ...
