    Early-weaned pigs (weaned at 7 to 14 d of age) that are managed in a conventional, one-site production system require a more complex diet in the transition phase (11 to 15 lb) than early-weaned pigs that are managed in a ...
  • Parcell, J.L.; Langemeier, Michael R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1995)
    Risks associated with independent hog finishing have prompted producers to seek alternative production and marketing methods. A means of reducing risk has developed through contract hog finishing. Research results ...

(Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1995)
    Irradiation and vacuum-packaging caused a more intense and stable red color in boneless pork chops. Irradiation up to 2.5 kGy increased cooked internal redness in chilled chops. Oxidative rancidity was greater in aerobic ...
  • Sorrell, P.; Burnham, L.L.; Kim, I.H.; Kennedy, G.A.; Hines, Robert H.; Hancock, Joe D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1995)
    Pigs in uncrowded pens (12 ft^2/pig) consumed more feed, gained at a greater rate, and tended to develop fewer stomach lesions than pigs in crowded pens (6 ft^2/pig). Pigs with ad libitum access to feed consumed more feed ...

    Two hundred sixty-six weanling pigs (initially 12.461b and 21 d of age) were used in a 34-<1 growth assay to evaluate the effects of various mineral supplementation regimens on starter pig growth, immune status, blood ...
  • Senne, B.W.; Sorrell, P.S.; Kim, I.H.; Traylor, S.L.; Hines, Robert H.; Hancock, Joe D.; Behnke, Keith C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1995)
    Rate and efficiency of gain were not affected by adding as much as 20% distillers dried grains in isocaloric diets for nursery pigs or 30% in isocaloric diets for finishing pigs. These results demonstrate that the previously ...
  • Kim, I.H.; Hines, Robert H.; Burnham, L.L.; Gugle, Terry L.; Hancock, Joe D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1995)
    In a 3 I-d nursery experiment, replacing soybean meal (SBM) with dry-extruded whole soybeans (DEWS) tended to improve F/G (6% overall difference), but ADG was not affected. Adjusting the diet with DEWS to the nutrient:calorie ...
  • Rantanen, M.M.; Hines, Robert H.; Kim, I.H.; Hancock, Joe D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1995)
    Pigs fed from wet-dry feeders had 4% greater ADG with 50% less water usage than those consuming feed from dry feeders. Pelleting diets improved F/G by 4% compared to meal diets. However, the benefits of pelleting were ...
