    Finishing pig diets are commonly supplemented with copper, zinc, iron, and manganese with large margins of safety compared to those suggested by NRC requirements. In this study, pigs were fed a control diet that provided ...
  • Schroeder, Ted C.; Mintert, J. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1999)
    Cash hog markets are declining in importance, and use of formula pricing of market hogs is increasing. Producers need more information to assist them in price discovery and formula price negotiations with pork packers. ...
  • Dhuyvetter, Kevin C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2000)
    A formula for deriving the price of segregated early-weaned (SEW) pigs using prices of grain, soybean meal, and market hog was estimated based on return on investment being equal for all three phases of production—farrowing, ...
  • Groothuis, P.G.; Blair, R.M.; Davis, Duane L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1995)
    We determined the age at which progesterone induced certain responses in the gilt's uterus. The prepubertal maturation permitting each response is being studied currently with the intent of using the information to develop ...
  • Levis, D.G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1989)
    Farrowing rate can be defined as: 1) the number of mated females that farrow within a contemporary group per total number of MATED females for this group or 2) the number of females that farrow within a contemporary group ...
  • Vargas Vargas, J.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1983)
    Three feeding trials using 480 finishing pigs were conducted to evaluate meal time feeding versus ad libitum feeding. Growth rate and feed required per pound of gain were similar for all treatments. Carcass characteristics, ...
  • Predicala, B.Z.; Maghirang, Ronaldo G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2002)
    Methods for measuring concentrations and emission rates of particulate matter (PM) from mechanically ventilated livestock buildings were evaluated in a laboratory facility and in a swine-finishing barn. Concentrations of ...
  • Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1970)
    Various types of mechanical units designed to replace lactating brood sows are available. The Mini-Mor Corporation, Omaha, Nebraska, lent Kansas State University a unit designed to raise 36 pigs in individual cages. We ...
  • Bergstrom, J.R.; Tokach, Michael D.; Dritz, Steven S.; Houser, Terry A.; Nelssen, Jim L.; Goodband, Robert D.; DeRouchey, Joel M. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010)
    Concern about the quality of pork fat has increased in the United States over the last decade, largely because of the increased availability and use of dried distillers grains with solubles (DDGS) in swine diets. The ...
  • Nitikanchana, S.; 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)
    Fifteen trials were used for meta-analyses comparing the effects of conventional dry (CD) and wet-dry (WD) feeders on growth performance, carcass traits, and water usage of growing-finishing pigs. The meta-analysis indicated ...
  • Jacela, J.Y.; DeRouchey, Joel M.; Tokach, Michael D.; Goodband, Robert D.; Nelssen, Jim L.; Dritz, Steven S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2009)
    A meta-analysis of 4 experiments involving 4,506 pigs was conducted to determine the effects of several commercial enzymes on the growth performance of growing-finishing pigs fed various amounts of dried distillers grains ...
  • Ong, Tze-chow; Allee, G.L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1984)
    Three growth trials and two metabolism trials utilizing 236 pigs were conducted to evaluate the effects of amino acids additions to weanling pig diets and to estimate the methionine requirement of weanling pigs using growth ...
  • Koch, B.A.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1969)
    Anemia as it most frequently occurs in baby pigs usually is caused by an iron deficiency. Iron stored in a baby pig is extremely limited and is quickly used to produce hemoglobin to maintain oxygen-carrying capacity in the ...
  • Koch, B.A.; Stuart, J.G.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1970)
    Three trials were conducted involving 231 head of pigs to determine the efficiency of various methods of providing supplemental iron to baby pigs. All treatment groups were effective in maintaining normal hematocrit values ...
  • Schoenherr, W.D.; Pollmann, D.S.; Kennedy, G.E.; Schoneweis, D.A.; LaForge, R.R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1983)
