  • Pretzer, S.D.; Claussen, K.M.; Bergstrom, J.R.; Henry, S.C.; Phillips, R.; Tokach, Michael D.; Goodband, Robert D.; Nelssen, Jim L.; Dritz, Steven S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1996)
    We evaluated the effects of a modified-live virus vaccine for PRRS virus on nursery growth performance. The pigs used in this study were obtained from a herd with substandard nursery growth performance attributed to PRRS ...

    A total of 317 lactating sows was fed either a corn-soybean meal diet (l.0%lysine) or a diet with a portion of the soybean meal replaced with 5% select menhaden fish meal on an equal lysine basis. Adding 5% select menhaden ...

    Early-weaned pigs (weaned at 14 d of age) that are managed in a conventional one-site production system and fed a complex segregated early-weaning diet will benefit from the inclusion of a diet acidifier during the first ...
  • Loughmiller, J.A.; Graf, P.S.; Bergstrom, J.R.; Muser, R.E.; Nelssen, Jim L.; Goodband, Robert D.; Tokach, Michael D.; Dritz, Steven S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1996)
    A growth study was conducted to determine the effects of substituting spray-dried cheese food for spray-dried plasma protein on weanling pig performance. Five dietary treatments included the control diet or diets with ...
  • Loughmiller, J.A.; Smith, J.W.II; Bergstrom, J.R.; Goodband, Robert D.; Tokach, Michael D.; Nelssen, Jim L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1996)
    Sixty four gilts (initially 120 lb) were used to evaluate the effects of increasing total sulfur amino acid (TSAA):lysine ratios on growth performance and carcass characteristics. Diets included two levels of lysine (.55% ...

    We used high-health status, weanling pigs to evaluate six different protein sources as replacements for spray-dried animal plasma. Spray-dried blood meal, spray-dried egg, spray-dried wheat gluten, extruded soy protein ...
  • Schroeder, Ted C.; Mintert, J. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1996)
    This study analyzes recent changes observed in pork, farm-to-wholesale and wholesale-to-retail, marketing margins. Although the inflation-adjusted, farm-to-wholesale margin has declined over the last 25 years, ...
  • Rowland, W.W.; Langemeier, Michael R.; Featherstone, Allen M.; Schurle, Bryan W. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1996)
    To remain competitive, hog operations will need to continue to improve production efficiency and manage costs. Kansas Farm Management Association data from 1992 to 1994 were used to measure technical, economic, and overall ...
  • Mintert, J.; Dritz, Steven S.; Schroeder, Ted C.; Hedges, S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1996)
    Hog producers can control the quality of the hogs they market. Through genetic selection and management, producers can have a large impact on hog carcass characteristics such as weight, backfat depth, and loin depth. ...
  • Richert, B.T.; Goodband, Robert D.; Tokach, Michael D.; Nelssen, Jim L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1996)
    One hundred eighty-five sows were used to evaluate effects of the interrelationship between isoleucine and valine on sow and litter performance. Litter weight and weight gain at weaning increased as dietary valine, isoleucine, ...
