  • Maxson, P.F. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1985)
    The past decade has seen increased emphasis upon sow research. With the strong pressure toward increased sow productivity, there continues to be a need for evaluation of sow nutrient requirements. One area that has received ...
  • Dulohery, S.A.; Nelssen, Jim L.; Davis, Duane L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1985)
    The effect of energy intake during a 21-day lactation and from weaning to estrus on sow and litter performance was studied. Lactation treatments consisted of two energy intakes, either 8 (Low Energy; LE) or 16 (High Energy, ...
  • Vargas Vargas, J.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1985)
    Two hundred finishing pigs were used to evaluate wet vs. dryad libitum feeding. Growth rate of finishing pigs was significantly improved (5%) by wet feeding. Feed utilization was improved 4.5% by wet feeding. Dry feeder ...
  • Goodband, Robert D.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1985)
    Two-hundred and forty weanling pigs averaging 14.0 Ibs. were utilized in two growth trials to evaluate the effects of increasing levels of barley in the diet. Milo was replaced by barley pound for pound at levels of 10, ...
  • Thaler, B.C.; Allee, G.L.; Nelssen, Jim L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1985)
    Two experiments and an on-farm trial were conducted to compare the performance of weanling pigs fed a high nutrient-density diet (HNDD) to the performance of pigs fed standard corn-soybean meal (C-SBM) diets. A total of ...
  • Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1985)
    Two feeding trials were conducted to evaluate the effect of mixing finishing pigs on subsequent performance. Growth rate of heavier pigs was reduced 15-35% in the two weeks after mixing when compared to the non-mixed pigs. ...
  • Nichols, David A.; Johnston, M.; Blecha, Frank; Murphy, James P. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1985)
    A total of 64 pigs were used to evaluate the effect of weekly temperature reductions. No differences were observed between treatments for average daily feed intake, daily gain, or feed efficiency. Pigs exposed to cooler ...
  • Stoner, G.R.; Allee, G.L.; Nelssen, Jim L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1985)
    Four experiments were conducted to evaluate Fish Protein Hydrolysate (FPH) as a protein source in starter diets for pigs. A total of 552 weaned pigs were used in three growth trials and one digestion study. All three growth ...
  • Goodband, Robert D.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1985)
    Three-hundred and ten crossbred finishing pigs averaging 110 lbs. were utilized in two growth trials to evaluate the effects of feeding barley to finishing hogs. In both experiments, there were no differences in average ...
  • Wooten, E.L.; Broce, A.B.; Blecha, Frank (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1985)
    Two trials were conducted to determine the effect of sarcoptic mange on growth performance of pigs. Results from previous experiments with weaned pigs artificially infested with sarcoptic mites indicated no alteration of ...
  • 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 ...
  • Nelssen, Jim L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1985)
    After several years of intensive research) the addition of fat to swine diets continues to generate spirited discussion. The use of cereal grain-soybean meal diets in the swine industry is popular because of the plentiful ...
  • Thulin, A.J.; Allee, G.L.; Harmon, D.L.; Schoneweis, D.A.; Davis, Duane L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1985)
    The transfer across the swine uterus and placenta of [1-14C] octanoic acid, [9,10(n)- H] palmitic acid, and [1- 14C] linoleic acid was studied in five gilts and their fetuses during late gestation, following a single bolus ...
  • 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 ...
  • Thulin, A.J.; Allee, G.L.; Harmon, D.L.; Schoneweis, D.A.; Davis, Duane L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1985)
    Utero-placental transfer of β hydroxybutyrate (BOHB) in swine was investigated during late gestation using three primiparous sows. There were no measureable artery-vein differences for BOHB concentration in whole blood ...
  • Newcomb, M.D.; Allee, G.L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1985)
    Two trials, using 360 pigs weaned at 17-27 days, were conducted to evaluate pig performance as affected by the addition of folic acid, thiamin, biotin, pyridoxine, or ascorbic acid to the diet. Combined data from Trial I ...
