  • Stiffler, D.; Kropf, Donald H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1970)
    Carcass data were obtained from 28 barrows from the Kansas Swine Testing Station and 31 from the Kansas State Barrow Contest in 1969. All were slaughtered and standard measurements taken. Each carcass was cut to wholesale ...
  • Koch, B.A.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1970)
    Pigs fed corn gained faster than those fed sorghum grain in one trial. The reverse was true in a second trial. Overall average daily gain figures were almost identical (1.67 lbs. per day for corn; 1.65 lbs. per day for ...
  • Stuart, J.G.; Koch, B.A.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1970)
    Five starters were compared with a corn-soybean meal standard with 15% skim milk and 12% sugar. Rations containing dried skim milk or dried whey with 3 or 5% added edible fat also were compared. The rations were offered ...
  • Koch, B.A.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1970)
    Mixing litters after weaning did not significantly affect rate of gain or efficiency of growing pigs. Weight gains were similar (1.57 or 1.49) for mixed litters and intact litters during a 28-day post-weaning trial.
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • Koch, B.A.; Lafferty, D.T.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1970)
    This progress report covers only growth rate and feed efficiency of pigs the first 73 days of one feeding trial. Replacing soybean meal with either dry-roasted whole soybeans or pressure-extruded, whole soybeans did not ...
  • Koch, B.A.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1970)
    Growing pigs fed ASP-250 from birth to market gained equally as well as those fed TNT. Feed conversion values were quite similar. Adding a fermentation product or vitamin E to rations did not produce consistently better ...
  • 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 ...
  • Koch, B.A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1970)
    Waste disposal and odor control are two important problems in pork production. The odor formerly was called the "money smell" has suddenly become "Environmental Pollution." Concentrating many animals in small areas compounds ...
  • Koch, B.A.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1970)
    Varying percentages of wheat replaced sorghum grain in rations for growing pigs in two trials. There were no significant differences in performance of pigs in trial one. In trial two significant differences unrelated to ...
