  • Koch, B.A.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1969)
    Most recent laboratory and research station reports have indicated that 2,2 - dichlorovinyl dimethyl phosphate (DDVP) (Shell Dichlorvos) fed at low levels to pregnant sows in late gestation favorably affects newborn pigs. ...
  • Koch, B.A.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1969)
    Recent reports indicate that a low level (25 parts per million of active ingredient) of 2,2 dichlorovinyl dimethyl phosphate (DDVP) increases growth of weanling pigs. The trial reported here was designed to measure such ...
  • Kiracofe, G.H.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1969)
    The hormone oxytocin (a hypothalamic neurosecretion that is stored in the posterior pituitary gland) stimulates' uterine contractions during natural parturition. Commerical oxytocin has been used to induce labor or to ...
  • Koch, B.A.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1969)
    The new K-State facilities for growing-finishing swine seemed ideal to re-evaluate various antibiotics as low-level feed additives. The first trial reported here was with the first pigs fed in the new barn. They also were ...
  • Koch, B.A.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1969)
    The protein level and protein quality of swine rations consisting primarily of grain can be changed by adding either protein like soybean meal or individual amino acids like lysine. Protein requirements are based on ...
  • Koch, B.A.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1969)
    Anemia as it most frequently occurs in baby pigs usually is caused by an iron deficiency. Iron stored in a baby pig is extremely limited and is quickly used to produce hemoglobin to maintain oxygen-carrying capacity in the ...
  • Koch, B.A.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1969)
    Baby pigs have the ability to grow rapidly and efficiently. Creep rations at an early age enhance their potential. Most commercial creep rations contain feedstuffs to increase palatability and acceptability. Are these ...
  • Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1969)
    Swine testing stations "performance prove” breeding lines for genetic progress in the swine industry. The phenotype of a boar is a combination of his genetic ability and environment (nutrition, health, and etc.). Thus by ...
