  • Greig, J.K.; Spillman, C.K.; Koch, B.A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1982)
    Exhaust air from a Kansas State University swine-farrowing house provides CO2 and possibly other gases that are being used by vegetable plants in a KSU greenhouse. In addition, a rock-storage system reduces fuel requirements ...
  • Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1982)
    Three feeding trials were conducted to compare soft winter wheat with hard winter wheat for finishing swine. In each trial, soft wheat diets supported weight gains and feed/gain ratio equal to those observed for pigs fed ...
  • Pollmann, D.S.; Kennedy, G.A.; Koch, B.A.; Allee, G.L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1982)
    Two trials were conducted to determine the influence of non viable lactobacillus fermentation product (LFP) in artificially reared pigs removed from sows at 24 to 36 hours postpartum. The pigs were fed a non-medicated milk ...
  • Stevenson, Jeffrey S.; Pollmann, D.S.; Davis, Duane L.; Murphy, James P. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1982)
    A study involving 327 crossbred sows was conducted to determine whether providing supplemental light in farrowing rooms would influence litter weight, number of pigs weaned, piglet survival rate, and subsequent rebreeding ...
  • Pollmann, D.S.; Allee, G.A.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1982)
    A total of 943 newly weaned (18 to 30 days of age) pigs were used in five trials to evaluate the addition of lysine and dried whey in starter diets. The results of these studies show that the lysine requirement is 1.2 to ...
  • Pollmann, D.S.; Henry, S.C.; Francis, E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1982)
    A trial was conducted to evaluate the influence of diet composition and type of medication on pigs weaned at approximately 5 weeks of age (average initial weight of 15 pounds). A commercial feeding program containing ...
  • Craig, J.V. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1982)
    Pregnant sow housing varies considerably from area to area in Australia. Thus, group housing amounts to less than 10% in Queensland, but probably exceeds 50% in Victoria. Confinement of pregnant sows in individual stalls ...
  • James, J.E.; James, D.M.; Martin, P.A.; Davis, Duane L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1982)
    Embryos were transferred from two pseudorabies infected herds to recipients from a pseudorabies free herd. All 38 donor sows had serum titers for pseudorabies but no recipients or pigs that were farrowed had clinical signs ...
  • Alle, G.L.; Koch, B.A.; Jackson, K. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1982)
    Gilts during pregnancy consumed approximately 29 pounds of milo stillage per day, when fed only stillage. Availability of water did not affect stillage consumption. Gilts fed stillage consumed only 2.2 pounds of DM per ...
  • Pollmann, D.S.; Bandyk, C.A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1982)
    A study was conducted to determine the viability of three commercially available lactobacillus products in nonmedicated and medicated (lincomycin at 100 grams per ton) swine feed in several different environments over a ...
  • Burson, D.E.; Hunt, Melvin C.; Schafer, D.E.; Beckwith, D.; Garrison, J.R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1982)
    Two studies were designed to test the effects of stunning method and time interval between stunning and bleeding on blood splashing in pork muscle. In study I, 82 market weight barrows and gilts were randomly assigned to ...
  • Pollmann, D.S.; Schoneweis, D.A.; Kennedy, G.A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1982)
    A study was conducted using 57 pigs from 10 litters to evaluate the value of rhinitis vaccination on performance, carcass quality, and health status. Pigs vaccinated with bordetella vaccine had fewer (P<.05) days to market ...
  • Nichols, David A.; Murphy, James P.; Pollmann, D.S.; Ames, D.R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1982)
    Twenty-eight sows and gilts were used to evaluate the value of drip sprinkling to reduce heat stress during lactation. Sprinkled sows had significantly lower respiration rates (P<.05) and consumed significantly more feed ...
  • Koch, B.A.; Pollmann, D.S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1982)
    Scabby wheat, infected with the fungus, Fusarium graminearum and grading No.4, replaced varying percentages of grain in a typical sorghum grain-soybean meal growing-finishing ration. Four pigs eating the control ration ...
