  • Blecha, Frank; Pollmann, D.S.; Kluber, E.F. III (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1984)
    An experiment was conducted to determine the influence of artificial rearing on the cellular immune response of young pigs. Artificially reared pigs had lower cellular immune reactivity than sow-reared controls. These ...
  • Vargas Vargas, J.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1984)
    Two feeding trials using 240 finishing pigs were conducted to evaluate meal feeding and ad libitum dry and wet feeding. Growth rate was significantly improved by wet feeding in trial 1. Overall, a 5% improvement in growth ...
  • Blecha, Frank; Pollmann, D.S.; VanWormer, D.M. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1984)
    An experiment was conducted to determine the influence of creep feeding on cellular immunity in young pigs. Creep feeding from 10 days of age to weaning did not influence phytohemagglutinin skin-test responses.
  • Li, De-Fa; Allee, G.L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1984)
    A digestion trial was conducted with 12 crossbred barrows averaging 48 lb to evaluate the digestibility of various fat sources. Fat sources evaluated were soybean oil, a 85% dry fat product composed of animal and vegetable ...
  • Christianson, S.; Allee, G.L.; Pollmann, D.S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1984)
    Twelve crossbred sows averaging 337 lb were used to determine apparent nutrient digestibility of three fat sources. Fat sources evaluated were soybean oil, a 85% dry-fat product composed of animal and vegetable fat, and a ...
  • LaForge, R.R.; Pollmann, D.S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1984)
    A Bacillus subtilus probiotic was tested using a total of 52 sows and 516 baby pigs to determine the effect on enteric colibacillosis control and on host bacterial population. The probiotic did not affect sow or baby pig ...
  • Wu, Jih-Fang; Allee, G.L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1984)
    Two feeding trials and two digestion trials were conducted to evaluate the effects of particle size and surface area of corn on the performance and nutrient digestibility of weaning and finishing pigs. The effects of ...
  • Nichols, David A.; Blecha, Frank; Johnston, M.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1984)
    A total of 144 weaned pigs were used to evaluate the effect of reduced nighttime temperatures on pig performance. No differences were observed in average daily feed intake, daily gain, or feed efficiency regardless of ...
  • Timmis, T; Dikeman, Michael E.; Hunt, Melvin C.; Highfill, G.; Stevenson, Jeffrey S.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1984)
    Implanting boar pigs at 100 lb with 24 mg of Compudose 200® (estradiol 17β) had no significant effect on "boar odor" in meat, rate of gain, feed efficiency, carcass leanness or meat quality traits. The presence of a 7 to ...
  • Davis, Duane L.; Stevenson, Jeffrey S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1984)
    Estrus was synchronized in gilts by feeding altrenogest for 18 days. All gilts were penned in gestation stalls. Beginning the day before the last altrenogest treatment and continuing until 3 days after treatment, gilts ...
  • Christianson, S.; Allee, G.L.; Pollmann, D.S.; Nelssen, Jim L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1984)
    Three feeding trials utilizing 185 sows (149 primiparous and 36 multiparous) were conducted to evaluate the effects of feeding various levels and sources of supplemental energy during lactation and from weaning to rebreeding ...
  • Wooten, E.L.; Broce, A.B.; Pollmann, D.S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1984)
    A trial was conducted to determine the efficacy of fenvalerate (Ectrin®) for control of sarcoptic mange mites in swine. Artificially infested pigs were treated with two sprayings of Ectrin at 0.05% concentration with 1 wk ...
  • Allee, G.L.; Milliken, George A.; Nelssen, Jim L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1984)
    An on-farm experiment was conducted utilizing 140 sows to compare the effect of feeding either fat or additional corn during late gestation on subsequent pig performance. Beginning on day 100 of gestation and until the day ...
  • Thulin, A.J.; Pollmann, D.S.; Blecha, Frank; Kennedy, G.A.; Whetter, P.; Allee, G.L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1984)
    One-hundred and sixty pigs were utilized to evaluate possible interactions between copper (Cu), selenium (Se), and vitamin E (E) on growth and immunity of starter pigs. Copper (260 ppm) added to the diet did not effect Se ...
  • Van Wormer, D.M.; Pollmann, D.S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1984)
    A total of 316 crossbred weanling pigs were used in two studies to evaluate the effect of the addition of edible-grade, unbleached soy lecithin on growth in starter pig diets with and without added fat and/or dried whey. ...
  • Van Wormer, D.; Pollmann, D.S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1984)
    A total of 316 crossbred weanling pigs were used in two studies to evaluate the effect of the addition of edible-grade, unbleached soy lecithin on growth in starter pig diets with and without added fat and/or dried whey. ...
