    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, ...
  • Goodband, Robert D.; Nelssen, Jim L.; Tokach, Michael D.; Dritz, Steven S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1996)
    We tested a probiotic/trace mineral mixture using a bacterial challenge model in high-health status pigs. We examined the influence of the mixture on growth performance, hematologic parameters, haptoglobin concentration, ...
  • Goodband, Robert D.; Tokach, Michael D.; Nelssen, Jim L.; Dritz, Steven S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1996)
    We used a total of 11,653 pigs to examine the influence of a lysine phase-feeding regimen on growth performance and carcass characteristics in finishing pigs. We found that the lysine regimen did not affect ADG. Also, ...

  • Traylor, S.L.; Behnke, Keith C.; Sorrell, P.; Fairchild, Fred J.; Hines, Robert H.; Hancock, Joe D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1996)
    Pellet size (i.e., 3/32 in., 5/32 in., 5/16 in., and 1/2 in. diameter) had little effect on growth performance during the early stages (d 0 to 5) of the nursery phase. However, the 5/32 in. diameter pellets supported ...
  • Mintert, J.; Dritz, Steven S.; Schroeder, Ted C.; Hedges, S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1996)
    Little research has been conducted regarding the impact that time of year when hogs are marketed has on various carcass traits. This study examined monthly variation in a variety of hog carcass traits based upon 1995 ...
  • Mavromichalis, I.; Kropf, Donald H.; Kennedy, G.A.; Hines, Robert H.; Senne, B.W.; Kim, I.H.; Johnson, S.L.; Hancock, Joe D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1996)
    Omitting the vitamin and trace mineralpremixes and(or) adding 2/3 less supplementalinorganic phosphorus source (from .55% down to .40% total P) to diets during late finishing (191 to 265 lb) had no effect ongrowth performance, ...
