  • Balogun, T.F.; Koch, B.A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1973)
    As little as 10% of coffee grounds depressed the feed intake and growth rate of growing pigs and finishing pigs. Apparently, reduced growth rate resulted from lack of palatability rather than any toxic factor in the coffee ...
  • Allee, G.L.; Smith, K. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1973)
    Two feeding trials, a digestion trial, and a preference trial were conducted to evaluate the effects of endosperm type on the nutritional value of sorghum grain in swine diets. Endosperm types evaluated were: (1) white ...
  • Allee, G.L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1973)
    Three trials involving 331 weanling pigs (5 to 7 weeks old and weighing 20 to 33 pounds) were conducted to determine the effects of supplementing low-protein starter diets with crystalline amino aqids. In trials I and II, ...
  • Schoneweis, D.A.; Kennedy, G.A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1973)
    Forty-eight feeder pigs were used in an experiment to determine Virginiamycin's effectiveness in preventing swine dysentery. Thirteen of 24 controls and one of 24 that received the antibiotic at either 25 or 50 grams per ...
  • Schoneweis, D.A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1973)
    Streptococcal and staphylococcal infections increase with increases in central farrowing housing and cause serious losses in young pigs. The baby pig may be affected in many ways, such as growths on the heart valves; ...
  • Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1973)
    Nursing litters given a choice of flavored or unflavored diets responded by consuming more flavored diet. Pre-weaning feeding did alter the preference patterns of the post-weaned pigs. Pigs fed only basal ration as creep ...
  • Ferrell, K.C.; Allee, G.L.; Koch, B.A.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1973)
    One hundred eighteen barrows and gilts were used to evaluate adding lysine to a 11.2% crude protein, milo-soybean meal ration. Rate of gain was significantly improved (P<.05) in both barrows and gilts receiving the higher ...
  • Allee, G.L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1973)
    The influence of feeding frequency on performance and nitrogen metabolism in gestating swine was studied by feeding 4 pounds daily, 8 pounds every other day, or 12 pounds every third day. All animals were maintained in dry ...
  • Allee, G.L.; Schoneweis, D.A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1973)
    Two trials involving 128 pigs were conducted to study the effects of antibacterial preparations on rate and efficiency of gain by young pigs. In both trials, the antibacterial preparations increased rate of gain. In trial ...
  • Eckert, T.E.; Allee, G.L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1973)
    Three growth trials and two nitrogen retention trials were conducted with 118 growing pigs to determine the limiting amino acids in milo. Lysine supplementation of the basal milo diet markedly improved daily gain, feed ...
  • Allee, G.L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1973)
    Four experiments involving 311 finishing pigs (112 to 220 pounds) were conducted to determine the minimum level of soybean meal necessary to supply all essential amino acids except lysine that are deficient in milo or ...
  • Wheat, J.D.; Kropf, Donald H.; Chang, C.H.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1973)
    Pigs farrowed in May, 1972, were the first born in the select and control lines. Performances of animals in the two lines were essentially the same. However, ham firmness and color differed significantly (P<0.0l) between ...
  • Spillman, C.K. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1973)
    Interest in environmentally-controlled facilities for swine has been increasing recently. Farrowing in such a facility can be justified for producers who plan to be producing pork for some time. However, many producers, ...
