  • Koch, B.A.; Allee, G.L.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1975)
    Two feeding trials involving 118 finishing Pigs were conducted to determine minimum salt needed in finishing diets. Performance of pigs fed 0.2 to 0.5% salt diets did not differ significantly, but pigs fed 0.1% or no ...
  • Davis, Duane L.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1977)

    Six cannulated barrows and two hundred eighty-eight chicks were used in an experiment to determine the value of an in vitro protein digestibility assay (pepsin digest) for identification of sorghum parent lines with ...
  • Wheat, J.D.; Kropf, Donald H.; Na-Lampang, P.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1978)
    Select line pigs were compared with those in the control line for growth patterns, production traits, and carcass quality. Heritability and genetic correlations were calculated for certain production and carcass traits ...
  • Wheat, J.D.; Kropf, Donald H.; Chang, C.H.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1974)
    Line differences in weight, litter size at different ages, and in age, loin eye area, and backfat thickness of pigs (adjusted to 200 pounds live weight) were not significant. Sex differences in weight and backfat thickness ...
  • Duttlinger, A.W.; Houser, Terry A.; Tokach, Michael D.; Dritz, Steven S.; Prusa, K.J.; Huskey, L.; DeRouchey, Joel M.; Nelssen, Jim L.; Goodband, Robert D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2009)
    Sensory characteristics were evaluated on a total of 80 loins from pigs fed diets containing glycerol, ractopamine HCl (RAC), and a combination of glycerol and RAC during the last 28 d prior to harvest. A total of 1,054 ...
  • Davis, Duane L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1985)
    The use of AI and embryo transfer in swine herds will undoubtedly increase during the next decade. The techniques themselves will undergo refinement and improvements as swine producers learn to use them and to manage the ...
  • Koch, B.A.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1969)
    Baby pigs have the ability to grow rapidly and efficiently. Creep rations at an early age enhance their potential. Most commercial creep rations contain feedstuffs to increase palatability and acceptability. Are these ...
  • Allee, G.L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1980)
    Smutty wheat substituted for milo in diets for pigs from 20-60 pounds did not affect pig performance.
  • Burnham, L.L.; Kim, I.H.; Hines, Robert H.; Gugle, Terry L.; Hancock, Joe D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1995)
    Extruded soybeans improved rates and efficiencies of gain when fed to nursery pigs in place of soybean meal (SBM). Sodium sulfite (an extrusion aid) increased extruder throughput and improved d 13 to 35 and overall ...
  • Burnham, L.L.; Kim, I.H.; Gugle, Terry L.; Hines, Robert H.; Hancock, Joe D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1994)
    A total of 150 weanling pigs (14.2 lb avg body wt) was used in a 28-d growth assay to determine the effects of using sodium sulfite as an extrusion enhancer for soy products. Treatments were: 1) soybean meal (SBM), ...
  • Spillman, C.K.; Robbins, F.V.; Koch, B.A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1977)
    The basic concept of the solar energy collector- storage system for preheating ventilating air is sound, and it should be an economic alternative as energy becomes less available and/or more expensive. Based on current ...
