  • Groesbeck, C.N.; Burkey, T.E.; Minton, J. Ernest; 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, 2007)
    The neonatal Fc receptor (FcRn) participates in intracellular trafficking of IgG and the maintenance of circulating IgG. The relationship between the FcRn and IgG may also augment host defense immunosurveillance. The current ...
  • Levis, D.G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1989)
    Many existing swine breeding facilities have been designed to control the environment, provide continuous boar-sow contact for stimulating recently weaned sows to cycle, reduce the distance a weaned sow or boar has to be ...

    Samples of sorghum dried distillers grains with solubles (DDGS) were collected and analyzed to establish a nutrient database and evaluate the quality and consistency between and within samples taken from 5 ethanol plants ...
  • DeRouchey, Joel M.; Nelssen, Jim L.; Tokach, Michael D.; Murphy, James P.; Goodband, Robert D.; Dritz, Steven S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2001)
    A total of 236 lagoon and 35 hoop barn manure samples were collected during 2000 from Kansas swine operations to determine the effects of production phase and season of the year on their nutrient concentration. Lagoon ...
  • Allee, G.L.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1972)
    An experiment involving 81 finishing pigs was conducted to determine the nutritional adequacy of triticale for finishing swine. Pigs fed triticale alone gained significantly (P<.05) slower than pigs fed any other diets. ...
  • Nelssen, Jim L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1989)
    The swine industry is in a transitional period as it gears up to produce the lean meat required by the consumer. In fact, pork processors arc increasing the production of lean products (boneless loins, 95% fat-free hams) ...
  • O'Quinn, P.R.; Knabe, D.A.; Woodworth, J.C.; Lohrmann, T.T.; Nelssen, Jim L.; Goodband, Robert D.; Tokach, Michael D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1998)
    Two trials were conducted to compare the nutritional adequacy ofhigh-lysine, high-oil corn (.408% lysine, 6.21% fat) and highoil corn (.289% lysine, 5.97% fat) for young growing pigs. Experiment 1 used four barrows fitted ...
  • Allee, G.L.; Paulsen, Gary M. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1975)
    A growth trial and a digestion trial were conducted using 44 crossbred pigs (initial average weight 40 pounds) to determine the nutritional value of pearl millet as a feedstuff for swine. The millet used contained 11.98% ...
  • Allee, G.L.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1972)
    One hundred thirty-five pigs averaging 57 pounds were used to determine the feeding value of triticale and the influence of physical form (meal or pellet) on the performance of growing pigs. Triticale replaced 20, 40, 60, ...
  • Laudert, S.; Allee, G.L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1974)
