    Two hundred seventy pigs (21 d of age and 12.8 lb initial wt) were used to determine if adding emulsifiers (lecithin and lysolecithin) to starter pig diets affects growth performance and digestibility of nutrients. ...
  • Jones, D.B.; Nelssen, Jim L.; Hines, Robert H.; Hancock, Joe D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1989)
    Ninety-six pigs (17 d of age and 11.6 lb initial wt) were utilized to determine if adding emulsifiers (lecithin and lysolecithin) to diets containing 10% added fat would affect nutrient digestibility. Fat sources were: 1) ...
  • Nichols, David A.; Goodband, Robert D.; Hines, Robert H.; Nelssen, Jim L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1989)
    One hundred and twenty-eight finishing pigs averaging 124 lb were utilized to evaluate the effects of different fat sources on growth performance. Pigs were fed one of four diets containing either no added fat (control) ...
  • Schoneweis, D.A.; Nicholson, R.I.; Fitzner, G.E.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1989)
    Odd-numbered pigs in new-born litters were vaccinated on d 1 with an oral Escherichia coli bacterin and their performance after weaning was compared with that of nonvaccinated littermates (even numbered pigs). In addition, ...
  • Nichols, David A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1989)
    In recent years, the pork industry has faced numerous challenges. As consumer resistance to fatter meats has increased, the industry has had two options, 1) argue against popular opinion that fat consumption posed a health ...
  • Swanson, J.A.; Hancock, Joe D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1989)
    Two hundred fifty-five pigs, weaned at 4 wk of age, were used in an experiment to compare the efficacy of Bacillus subtilis and antibiotics as growth promoters for swine from nursery to finishing. Treatments were a ...
  • Kreikemeier, K.K.; Harmon, D.L.; Nelssen, Jim L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1989)
    One litter of 12 piglets was used in a completely random design to evaluate the effects of hydrocortisone acetate injections on organ weight and carbohydrase activities. Dams' milk was the only food source available to the ...
  • Kropf, Donald H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1989)
    The word "improved" in a commercial sense means "altered product characteristics to meet the consumers' real and perceived needs." The pork industry in the 90's must progress toward offering products designed to meet ...
  • Levis, D.G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1989)
    Farrowing rate can be defined as: 1) the number of mated females that farrow within a contemporary group per total number of MATED females for this group or 2) the number of females that farrow within a contemporary group ...
  • Levis, D.G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1989)
    Many existing swine breeding facilities have been designed to control the environment, provide continuous boar-sow contact for stimulating recently weaned sows to cycle, reduce the distance a weaned sow or boar has to be ...
  • Nelssen, Jim L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1989)
    The swine industry is in a transitional period as it gears up to produce the lean meat required by the consumer. In fact, pork processors arc increasing the production of lean products (boneless loins, 95% fat-free hams) ...
  • Schricker, B.R.; Goodband, Robert D.; Hines, Robert H.; Nelssen, Jim L.; Kropf, Donald H.; Hancock, Joe D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1989)
    The femur, a rib, and third phalanx of the second digit from the front foot were collected from 108 barrows (initial wt = 125 lb) and analyzed to determine the effects of porcine somatotropin (pST) and dietary lysine on ...
  • Schroeder, Ted C.; Mintert, J.R.; Blair, John M. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1989)
    This study examined the reaction of slaughter hog cash and futures prices to USDA Hogs and Pigs reports. Over the 1972-87 period, the nearby live hog futures price had $1/cwt or larger absolute price changes on 48% of the ...
  • Rhodes, M.T.; Davis, Duane L.; Stevenson, Jeffrey S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1989)
    We examined the effects of flushing (3.4 lb additional ground milo for approximately 2 wk before insemination) and pubertal status (inseminated at puberty or postpuberty) on ovulation rate and litter traits in gilts. ...
