  • Mills, K.W.; Phillips, R.M.; Kelly, B.L.; Baughman, G.L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1981)
    The efficiency of the standard agglutination test, Y-1 mouse adrenal cell test, and infant-mouse gastric test was compared with a recently developed enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) for detecting the K88 pilus ...
  • Koch, B.A.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1971)
    The feed, required per pound of gain was similar for pigs fed corn, sorghum grain, corn-wheat, or sorghum grain-wheat diets. Pigs on the corn ration grew significantly (P<.05) faster. The sorghum grain, sorghum grain-wheat, ...
  • Allee, G.L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1977)
    One hundred eight crossbred, weaned pigs averaging 10.0ks (22.1 lbs.) were used to compare rations containing sorghum, corn, or wheat with 0 or 4% added fat (tallow) on performance of young pigs. There were no significant ...
  • Schroeder, Ted C.; Mintert, J.R.; Blair, John M. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1989)
    This study examined the reaction of slaughter hog cash and futures prices to USDA Hogs and Pigs reports. Over the 1972-87 period, the nearby live hog futures price had $1/cwt or larger absolute price changes on 48% of the ...
  • Lipper, R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1975)
    Of several types of processes to capture energy from organic wastes, anaerobic digestion appears to be most attractive for swine wastes. It can stabilize the waste while producing bio-gas or methane gas. The concept has ...
  • Allee, G.L.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1971)
    Gains of finishing pigs fed whole or rolled reconstituted sorghum grain (30% moisture) from 100 lbs. to an average of 210 lbs. were similar and similar to gains by pigs fed a ground sorghum grain ration. Compared on a 90% ...
  • Wondra, K.J.; Kennedy, G.A.; Hines, Robert H.; Hancock, Joe D.; Behnke, Keith C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1992)
    One hundred primiparous sows were used to determine the effects of corn particle size in lactation diets on sow and litter performance. Sows were fed com-soybean mealbased diet with the com ground to 1,200, 900, 600, or ...
  • Keeler, G.L.; Langemeier, Michael R.; Tokach, Michael D.; Goodband, Robert D.; Nelssen, Jim L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1993)
    This study examined the relationship between live and carcass prices and the seasonality of live, carcass, and wholesale cut prices. Results using Omaha live prices suggested a unidirectional relationship between live ...
  • Young, M.G.; Tokach, Michael D.; Goodband, Robert D.; Nelssen, Jim L.; Dritz, Steven S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2001)
    Backfat and body condition score were measured on 731 sows in a commercial swine facility to assess the accuracy of feeding sows in gestation based on body condition score. Body condition score was poorly correlated (r2 ...
  • Conley, P.B. III; Orwig, T.W.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1976)
    Fourteen body measurements were taken on 259 boars at 65 lbs. and again at 250 lbs. determine the relationship of external body dimensions with certain performance traits. Correlations between body measurements and growth ...
  • Carnahan, D.H.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1978)
    Forty-seven Yorkshire barrows were selected for large and small scale test groups by using body height and length as a selection index. Initially the index between groups differed; however, the same measurements gave ...
  • Johnston, M.E.; Nelssen, Jim L.; Goodband, Robert D.; Hines, Robert H.; Kropf, Donald H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1993)
    The relationship between ham and carcass composition of 120 barrows with an average initial weight of 130 lb was used to develop prediction equations to determine carcass composition based on ham composition. Eighty pigs ...
  • Rhodes, M.T.; Davis, Duane L.; Stevenson, Jeffrey S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1989)
    We examined the effects of flushing (3.4 lb additional ground milo for approximately 2 wk before insemination) and pubertal status (inseminated at puberty or postpuberty) on ovulation rate and litter traits in gilts. ...
  • Kim, I.H.; Lee, J.H.; Park, J.S.; Kropf, Donald H.; Johnston, S.L.; Sorrell, P.; Hines, Robert H.; Hancock, Joe D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1996)
    Average daily gain; ADFI; F/G; dressing percentage; tenth rib fat thickness and depth; and color, firmness, and marbling of the longissimus muscle were not influenced by omitting the vitamin and(or) trace mineral premixes ...

    Average daily gain; ADFI; F/G; dressing percentage; tenth rib fat thickness and depth; and color, firmness, and marbling of the longissimus muscle were not influenced by omitting the vitamin and(or) trace mineral premixes ...
  • Stoner, G.R.; Nelssen, Jim L.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1988)
    A growth study was conducted to evaluate the possibility of replacing dried skim milk (DSM) with select menhaden fish (SMFM) in a high nutrient density diet. A total of 210, 3wk- old weaned pigs was utilized. Diets were ...
  • James, J.E.; James, D.M.; Martin, P.A.; Davis, Duane L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1982)
    Embryos were transferred from two pseudorabies infected herds to recipients from a pseudorabies free herd. All 38 donor sows had serum titers for pseudorabies but no recipients or pigs that were farrowed had clinical signs ...
  • Stevenson, Jeffrey S.; Davis, Duane L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1983)
    Our objective was to characterize reproductive performance for sows nursed by only two to four pigs for the last 5 days of lactation. Litter size was reduced beginning at 2 (16 sows), 3 (15 sows), or 4 (15 sows) weeks after ...
