  • Evans, E.I.; Stevenson, Jeffrey S.; Davis, Duane L.; Dritz, Steven S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2000)
    We used 66 pregnant sows to compare serum progesterone concentrations following a single injection of either saline or one of two prostaglandin F2a products approved for use in swine. Pregnant sows in a commercial swine ...
  • Real, D.E.; Woodworth, J.C.; Webster, M.J.; Tokach, Michael D.; Nelssen, Jim L.; Goodband, Robert D.; Dritz, Steven S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2000)
    A 24-d growth study was conducted to evaluate the effects of low rates of a dietary acidifier, calcium propionate, on weanling pig growth performance. Experimental diets, fed from d 0 to 10, were a control diet with no ...
  • Real, D.E.; Woodworth, J.C.; Webster, M.J.; James, B.W.; Alonso, E.; Nelssen, Jim L.; Tokach, Michael D.; Goodband, Robert D.; Unruh, John A.; DeRouchey, Joel M.; Dritz, Steven S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2000)
    One hundred forty-four finishing pigs were used to determine the influence of added dietary niacin on their growth performance and meat quality. Gilts grew slower, ate less, and were more efficient than barrows for the ...
  • Woodworth, J.C.; Steidinger, M.U.; DeRouchey, Joel M.; Tokach, Michael D.; Nelssen, Jim L.; Goodband, Robert D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2000)
    A total of 150 pigs (initially 22 lb; 42 d of age) was used to determine the influence of dry, extruded-expelled soybean meal from three different manufacturers on growth performance of pigs. No differences were observed ...
  • Dhuyvetter, Kevin C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2000)
    A formula for deriving the price of segregated early-weaned (SEW) pigs using prices of grain, soybean meal, and market hog was estimated based on return on investment being equal for all three phases of production—farrowing, ...
  • Dhuyvetter, Kevin C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2000)
    The economic impact of alternative sowculling strategies was examined by simulating costs and returns for a farrowing-to-weaning swine operation. Culling strategies considered were to sell sows after parity 1 (P1) ...
  • James, B.W.; Goodband, Robert D.; Tokach, Michael D.; Nelssen, Jim L.; DeRouchey, Joel M. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2000)
    A total of 360 weanling pigs (initially 12.3 lb BW and approximately 18 d of age) was used in a 14-d growth assay to determine the optimal isoleucine:lysine ratio to maximize growth performance. The 12 experimental ...
  • Woodworth, J.C.; James, B.W.; Webster, M.J.; Real, D.E.; DeRouchey, Joel M.; Nelssen, Jim L.; Tokach, Michael D.; Goodband, Robert D.; Dritz, Steven S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2000)
    Two studies were conducted to evaluate the effects of spray-dried blood meal and its pH on nursery pig performance. Spray-dried blood meal pH decreases as storage time increases prior to spray drying. In Exp. 1, addition ...
  • O’Quinn, P.R.; Swanson, J.C.; Musser, R.E.; Goodband, Robert D.; Tokach, Michael D.; Nelssen, Jim L.; Dritz, Steven S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2000)
    A trial was conducted to determine the effects of sorting pigs by body weight at placement on growth performance and weight variation at finishing. Unsorted pigs and heavy sorted pigs had higher ADG than medium or light ...
  • 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 ...
  • Lee, D.J.; Maloney, C.A.; Dean, D.W.; Cao, H.; Hancock, Joe D.; DeRouchey, Joel M. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2000)
    Digestibilities of amino acids among samples of soybean meal (SBM) collected during a fall harvest season (4 collections made 15 d apart) were similar, except that true digestibility from tryptophan was lower for a sample ...
