  • Schmidt, W.E.; Davis, Duane L.; Stevenson, Jeffrey S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1983)
    We penned sows after weaning either in groups of 4 or 5 or individually in gestation stalls. Beginning 3 days after weaning sows were checked twice daily and artificially inseminated 24 and 36 hr after first detected ...
  • Stevenson, Jeffrey S.; Davis, Duane L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1983)
    Our objective was to determine the effectiveness of inducing estrus during lactation by reducing the nursing load of the sow between 2 and 4 weeks after farrowing. lactating sows were separated from their litters for ...
  • Pollmann, D.S.; Dennis, S.M.; LaForge, R.R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1983)
    Twenty-four sows were utilized to evaluate the influence of a high fiber diet on nutrient digestibility and hindgut bacterial populations and volatile fatty acid (VFA) concentrations. Sows were fed either a control of ...
  • Vargas Vargas, J.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1983)
    Three feeding trials using 480 finishing pigs were conducted to evaluate meal time feeding versus ad libitum feeding. Growth rate and feed required per pound of gain were similar for all treatments. Carcass characteristics, ...
  • Schoenherr, W.D.; Pollmann, D.S.; Kennedy, G.E.; Schoneweis, D.A.; LaForge, R.R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1983)
    Three experiments were conducted with pigs to examine the influence of two antimicrobial agents on growth, blood parameters, the intestinal flora population and the therapeutic action on mycoplasma pneumonia. The pigs were ...
  • Erickson, Howard H.; Faraci, F.M.; Olsen, S.C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1983)
    Pigs were exercised for 5 minutes at five different treadmill speeds (1.0-1.8 m• sec^-1 ) (3° incline), while oxygen consumption (MO2), carbon dioxide production (MCO2), and the electrocardiogram (ECG) were continuously ...
  • Hsu, A; Allee, G.L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1983)
    A rapid in vitro method has been developed to predict digestibilities of nitrogen, dry matter (DM) and energy in feed ingredients and mixed diets for swine. A total of 21 samples, including nine feed ingredients and 12 ...
  • Hsu, Ali; Allee, G.L.; Pollmann, D.S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1983)
    Nine individual feed ingredients and 12 mixed diets were used in an attempt to select the most suitable regression equation for predicting energy value and nitrogen digestibility from chemical analyses. Samples were analyzed ...
  • Stevenson, Jeffrey S.; Davis, Duane L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1983)
    Our objective was to characterize reproductive performance for sows nursed by only two to four pigs for the last 5 days of lactation. Litter size was reduced beginning at 2 (16 sows), 3 (15 sows), or 4 (15 sows) weeks after ...
  • Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1983)
    Two feeding trials involving a total of 320 head of finishing pigs were used to evaluate the effect of feeding an antibiotic to three groups selected from within a farrowing group. Pigs were divided by weight into group A ...
  • Koch, B.A.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1983)
    One hundred and twenty weaned pigs were used to evaluate the effect of space allowance. Pigs were housed in a control environment nursery with woven wire flooring with 4, 6, 8, 10, or 12 head per 4' x 5' pen which allowed ...
