  • Bramel-Cox, P.J.; Hancock, Joe D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1991)
    Sorghum grain is an extremely important crop to both farmers and livestock feeders in the High-Plains states (e.g., from Nebraska to Texas). Kansas leads the nation in sorghum production, and as should be expected, ...
  • Wheat, J.D.; Yu, T.; Schalles, R.R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1970)
    As early as 1926, Danish workers reported that cross-breeding gave larger litters at weaning that gained faster on less feed per pound of gain. Crossbreeding is now used extensively in market hog production. It uses heterosis ...

    A total of 3,186 pigs were used in two 21-d experiments to evaluate growth performance of nursery pigs fed different levels of dried distillers grains with soluble (DDGS) or soybean hulls. In each experiment, pigs (n = ...
  • Hastad, C.W.; Groesbeck, C.N.; Lawrence, K.R.; Lenehan, N.A.; Keegan, T.P.; Tokach, Michael D.; Nelssen, Jim L.; Goodband, Robert D.; DeRouchey, Joel M.; Dritz, Steven S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2003)
    A large increase in the number of ethanol plants has lead to increased availability of dried distiller’s grains with solubles (DDGS). New plants also have improved processing techniques, which makes DDGS more attractive ...
  • Friesen, K.G.; Schinckel, A.P.; Nelssen, Jim L.; Goodband, Robert D.; Tokach, Michael D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1994)
    Conventional response criteria for amino acid research include mean live weight gain and tissue accretion rates over a given weight interval. However, these methods fail to characterize the changing response of tissue ...
  • Loughmiller, J.A.; Spire, M.F.; Hogge, S.B.; James, B.W.; Tokach, Michael D.; Nelssen, Jim L.; Goodband, Robert D.; Dritz, Steven S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2000)
    Eighty barrows were used in two experiments to determine the relationship between feed intake or dietary energy concentration and mean body surface temperature (MBST) and mean body surface radiant heat loss (MBSL) as ...
  • Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1977)
    Two feeding trials involving 112 Yorkshire weaned pigs (25 lbs.) were conducted to study the use of oats and fat in grower rations. Adding 3% fat (soy oil) to the fortified corn-soybean control ration reduced daily feed ...
  • Allee, G.L.; Li, De-Fa; Nelssen, Jim L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1985)
    Seventy-six gilts were used to evaluate the effects of feeding raw soybeans during gestation, lactation, and rebreeding on sow and litter performance. Reproductive performance during two parities was not impaired by feeding ...
  • Smith, J.W.II; Schinckel, A.P.; Tokach, Michael D.; Nelssen, Jim L.; Goodband, Robert D.; Dritz, Steven S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1996)
    Eighty pigs, 40 barrows and 40 gilts, on two commercial finishing operations were used to model growth and accretion rates. Major differences were observed between the two farms. This analysis indicates that realtime ...
  • Smith, J.W.II; Schinckel, A.P.; Tokach, Michael D.; Nelssen, Jim L.; Goodband, Robert D.; Dritz, Steven S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1996)
    Eighty pigs, 40 barrows and 40 gilts, on two commercial finishing operations were used to model growth and accretion rates. Major differences were observed between the two farms. This analysis indicates that real-time ultrasound ...
  • Blecha, Frank; Reddy, D.N.; Chitko-McKown, C.G.; Chengappa, M. M.; McVey, D.S.; Goodband, Robert D.; Nelssen, Jim L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1991)
    An experiment was conducted to determine the adjuvanticity of recombinant bovine interleukin-1β (rBoIL-1β) and recombinant bovine interleukin-2 (rBoIL-2) administered in conjunction with a single S. suis vaccination in ...
  • Senne, B.W.; Mavromichalis, I.; Johnston, S.L.; Sorrell, P.S.; Kim, I.H.; Hines, Robert H.; Hancock, Joe D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1996)
    Two experiments were conducted to etermine the effects of sorghum-based distillers dried grains with solubles in isocaloric diets for nursery and finishing pigs. Rate and efficiency of gain in nursery pigs were decreased ...
  • Richert, B.T.; Hines, Robert H.; Hancock, Joe D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1992)
    One hundred thirty-two weanling pigs, with an average age of 19 d and average weight of 8.4Ib, were used in a 28-d growth assay to determine the effects of replacing dried skim milk (DSM) with dried whey protein concentrate ...
  • Nelssen, Jim L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1987)
    Biotechnology has developed a number of compounds that partition nutrients away from fat tissue deposition and towards lean (muscle) tissue accretion in swine. Two compounds that have received considerable research attention ...
  • Greig, J.K.; Spillman, C.K.; Koch, B.A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1980)
    Exhaust air from a Kansas State University swine finishing house provides CO2 and possible other gases that are used by vegetable plants. In addition, a rock storage system reduces fuel requirements of the greenhouse. ...
