  • 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)
    The feeding value of high-moisture milo treated with organic acids for finishing swine was studied in two trials involving 56 pigs. There were no significant differences in daily gain, feed intake, feed efficiency, or ...
  • Jones, R.; Langemeier, Michael R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1997)
    This study examines historical net returns to average Kansas swine producers over the past 16 years. Swine production has been a profitable enterprise. As expected, average returns per head have been higher for ...
  • Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1988)
    During the past 6 yr, extensive research has been conducted at KSU to evaluate feeding systems and various types of wet and dry feeders. Comparisons have been made between timed-feeding and ad libitum feeding systems ...
  • Schmidt, W.E.; Davis, Duane L.; Stevenson, Jeffrey S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1983)
    We penned sows after weaning either in groups of 4 or 5 or individually in gestation stalls. Beginning 3 days after weaning sows were checked twice daily and artificially inseminated 24 and 36 hr after first detected ...
  • Kreikemeier, K.K.; Harmon, D.L.; Nelssen, Jim L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1989)
    One litter of 12 piglets was used in a completely random design to evaluate the effects of hydrocortisone acetate injections on organ weight and carbohydrase activities. Dams' milk was the only food source available to the ...
  • Mintert, J.; Dritz, Steven S.; Schroeder, Ted C.; Hedges, S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1996)
    Hog producers can control the quality of the hogs they market. Through genetic selection and management, producers can have a large impact on hog carcass characteristics such as weight, backfat depth, and loin depth. ...
  • Fahrenholz, A.C.; McKinney, Leland J.; Wurth, C.E.; Behnke, Keith C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010)
    The American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers (ASABE) publishes a standard for identifying particle size by sieving (ASABE S319.4). However, this standard includes a number of options that allow the test ...
  • Kropf, Donald H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1989)
    The word "improved" in a commercial sense means "altered product characteristics to meet the consumers' real and perceived needs." The pork industry in the 90's must progress toward offering products designed to meet ...
  • Goodband, Robert D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1990)
    Particle size reduction has a great impact on efficiency of feed utilization. Decreasing particle size improves digestibility of nutrients by increasing surface area and allowing for greater interaction with digestive ...
  • Richert, B.T.; Goodband, Robert D.; Tokach, Michael D.; Nelssen, Jim L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1995)
    Mammary secretory tissue from six (three each of parity 1 and 2) lactating sows (d 10 to 17 of lactation) was obtained via biopsy for in vitro incubation to determine CO2 production fr01TI individual branched chain amino ...
  • Healy, B.J.; Bramel-Cox, P.J.; Hines, Robert H.; Hancock, Joe D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1993)
    Nutritional value of eight sorghum hybrids, resulting from matings of four male lines with two male-sterile lines, was determined. The male lines were two sorghums with consistently high in vitro digestibility (High-digestibility ...
  • Groesbeck, C.N.; Neill, C.R.; Goodband, Robert D.; Tokach, Michael D.; Nelssen, Jim L.; DeRouchey, Joel M.; Dritz, Steven S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2005)
    Although the importance of thoroughly mixing diets is often emphasized, little data is available to quantify the impact of inadequate mixing on pig growth performance. Therefore, a 28-d trial was conducted to evaluate the ...
