    From January, 1976, to January, 1977, I served as chairman of a subcommittee of the National Advisory Food &Drug Consultants charged with examining several issues concerned with the "Use of Antibiotics in Animal Feeds". ...
  • Allee, G.L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1977)
    Eighty-four crossbred pigs averaging 43.6 kg. (95.9 lbs.) initially were used to evaluate the use of a blended dried bakery product (BDBP) in rations for finishing pigs. Replacing 0, 10, 20, or 30% of the sorghum in the ...
  • Allee, G.L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1977)
    A growth trial, a digestion trial, and a preference trial were conducted to evaluate a blended dried bakery product (BDBP) as an ingredient in swine starter rations. Replacing 0, 10, 20, or 30% corn with BDBP had no effect ...
  • Greer, J.G.; Davis, Duane L.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1977)
    Forty-two boars averaging 67 lbs. were used to study how various levels of calcium and phosphorus in their feed affected their development. Calcium-to phosphorus ratios of 1.2 to 1 were maintained in all treatment diets, ...
  • Koch, B.A.; Kruckenberg, S.M.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1977)
    Forty-eight Yorkshire pigs averaging 35 lbs. were used to compare their performance under these feeding sequences: (A) mecadox plus banminth, received until weighing 75 lbs., followed by terrarnyci n to 125 lbs.; (B) ...
  • Allee, G.L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1977)
    Eight-four crossbred gilts initially averaging 8.2 kg. (18.0 lbs.) were used to evaluate the effects of supplemental choline to corns-soybean meal rations on pig performance. Four levels of choline were fed during each ...
  • Allee, G.L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1977)
    Seventy-two crossbred finishing pigs averaging 55.9 kg. (123.0 lbs.) were used (in a 3 x 2 factorial design) to compare performance when fed sorghum, corn, or wheat with 0 or 4% added fat (tallow). There were no significant ...
  • Schoneweis, D.A.; Allee, G.L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1977)
    Two trials involving 33 litters of pigs and more than 1,300 blood samples demonstrated that feeding iron proteinate (250 PPM) to the sows during the last one-third of gestation and lactation is not an effective way to ...
  • Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1977)
    A feeding trial utilizing one-hundred and twelve growing-finishing Duroc pigs was conducted to evaluate the effect of buquinolate (0, 30, 60, or 90g/t) in their diets on growth, efficiency, and carcass quality. Pigs fed ...
  • Greig, J.K.; Spillman, C.K.; Koch, B.A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1977)
    Exhaust air from the Kansas State University swine farrowing house provides most of the heat needed in a greenhouse adjacent to it. The air apparently is not toxic to any of the vegetable plants tested. Tomato plants in ...
  • Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1977)
    Forty-eight Yorkshire barrows and 48 Yorkshire gilts were fed separately three protein sequences to a finish weight of 250 to 260 lbs. Barrows gained faster and were more efficient on protein sequence B (16% protein diet ...
  • Koch, B.A.; Allee, G.L.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1977)
    Supplemental vitamin C fed at two different levels (550 or 1,100mg, per kg, of diet) did not improve animal performance at the swine research center. Adding apple flavor or sodium bicarbonate did not change results.
  • Schoneweis, D.A.; Allee, G.L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1977)
    The experiment suggests that a primary need of the neonatal pig is iron and that hematinics such as cobalt and liver extract are of little value if iron is insufficient.
  • Schoneweis, D.A.; Allee, G.L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1977)
    Giving an iron iron dextran-gentamycin combination to young pigs had no advantages over giving them iron dextran alone, as measured by hemoglobin levels, packed cell volumes, or weight (when 28 days old).
  • Koch, B.A.; Allee, G.L.; Lipper, R.I.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1977)
    At the KSU swine research unit, the aerobic oxidation waste-disposal system continues to function satisfactorily. Though problems and maintenance are minimal, routine observation and maintenance are necessary to prevent ...
  • Allee, G.L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1977)
    One hundred twenty-six crossbred pigs averaging 11.7 kg. (25.7 lbs.) were used to determine the effects of energy density (added fat or fiber) and calorie-protein, calorie-lysine, and calorie-nutrient ratios of rations on ...
  • Schoneweis, D.A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1977)
    Pseudorabies has been talked and written about so much the last few years that it seems that there isn't anything left to be said. It may be that so much has been said about the disease that now is the time to review the ...
  • Allee, G.L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1977)
    One hundred eight crossbred, weaned pigs averaging 10.0ks (22.1 lbs.) were used to compare rations containing sorghum, corn, or wheat with 0 or 4% added fat (tallow) on performance of young pigs. There were no significant ...
  • Allee, G.L.; Koch, B.A.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1977)
