  • Hung, S.; Hunt, Melvin C.; Kropf, Donald H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1987)
    Longissimus samples from seven pork loins were used to determine display color stability when packaged in oxygen-permeable (polyviny lchloride, PVC) film and when vacuum packaged. Color scores were different at all times ...
  • Turlington, W.H.; Allee, G.L.; Nelssen, Jim L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1987)
    A 5-week trial was conducted to compare various fat sources for the weaned pig. A total of 150 pigs were weaned at 19 days of age and allotted, by weight, to five dietary treatments. Treatments consisted of a control with ...
  • Tokach, Michael D.; Nelssen, Jim L.; Allee, G.L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1987)
    One hundred and eighty 3-wk old pigs (initial weight 10.6 lb) were utilized in a 35-day growth trial to determine the effects of the carbohydrate and/or protein fractions of dried whey on pig performance. In addition, 30 ...
  • Allee, G.L.; Stoner, G.R.; Johnston, M.E.; Nelssen, Jim L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1987)
    This experiment was conducted to examine the influence of season on the response of finishing pigs to practical levels of fat addition. A total of 378 pigs (average initial weight per trial ranging from 83 to 98 pounds) ...
  • Stoner, G.R.; Allee, G.L.; Nelssen, Jim L.; Johnston, M.E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1987)
    A growth trial was conducted to examine the effects of select menhaden fish meal (SMFM) and dried whey (DW) in starter diets for pigs. A total of 240, 3-wk-old, weaned pigs averaging 12.1 lb were utilized. Pigs did not ...
  • Hines, Robert H.; Schoneweis, D.A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1987)
    Two trials involving 262 pigs were conducted to evaluate five worming programs for growing-finishing pigs fed on dirt lots heavily infected with roundworm (Ascarid) eggs. The control pigs (no anthelmentic) were compared ...
  • Gooband, Robert D.; Nelssen, Jim L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1987)
    An on-farm field study utilizing 231 sows was conducted to determine the effects of added niacin during a 21-day lactation on sow and litter performance. At farrowing, sows were assigned to one of two dietary treatments ...
  • Rhodes, M.T.; Davis, Duane L.; Stevenson, Jeffrey S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1987)
    We tested the effects of flushing (3.4 lb extra ground sorghum grain for at least 10 days before estrus) and estrous synchronization with altrenogest on litter traits in gilts. Altrenogest had no effect on litter size or ...
  • Goldy, G.; Hines, Robert H.; Goodband, Robert D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1987)
    Two trials were conducted to compare the feeding value of homozygous and heterozygous yellow endosperm grain sorghum and corn for finishing pigs. Homozygous yellow endosperm grain sorghum had no advantage in feeding value ...
  • Turlington, W.H.; Alle, G.L.; Nelssen, Jim L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1987)
    Two trials using a total of 48 pigs were conducted to compare protein (soybean meal and casein) and carbohydrate (dextrose and lactose) sources. In trial 1, digestion studies were conducted to determine apparent digestible ...
  • Goodband, Robert D.; Turlington, W.H.; Hines, Robert H.; Allee, G.L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1987)
    One hundred and sixty-five, crossbred, growing-finishing pigs were utilized in two growth trials to determine the effects of sprout-damaged milo on pig performance. Sprout-damaged milo was officially graded as having 39% ...
  • Newton, E.A.; Stevenson, Jeffrey S.; Davis, Duane L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1987)
    In two different experiments, we studied the influence of: 1) separating litters from their dams (altered suckling) during the last 8 days of lactation, which included a change in housing and social interaction with other ...
  • Anderson, N.V.; King, C.A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1987)
    Germfree piglets rapidly develop pneumonia after Haemophilus pleuropneumoniae is inoculated into the lung, providing a basis of comparison for future studies of pneumonia in SPF and conventionally reared piglets.
  • Davis, Duane L.; Stevenson, Jeffrey S.; Minton, J. Ernest (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1987)
    Management and biological factors combine to limit litter size in swine herds. With present technology, improving litter size depends upon increasing the number born in the first litter and prolonging sow longevity. Methods ...
  • Nichols, David A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1987)
    Swine have a great ability to grow and reproduce in a variety of environments and facilities. This ability is documented by profitable production in both the most elaborate and the most simple facilities. Efficiency and ...
  • Hines, Robert H.; Koch, B.A.; Nichols, David A.; Turlington, L.M.; Goodband, Robert D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1987)
    Eighty barrows and 80 gilts were fed diets containing four crude protein levels (16, 15, 14, and 13%) from approximately 115 lb to a market weight of 230-235 lb. Barrows and gilts were fed separately to determine their ...
  • Nelssen, Jim L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1987)
