  • Koch, B.A.; Cowman, G.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1968)
    Most authorities agree that the value of a protein source is determined by its content of essential amino acids. On that basis soybean meal compares favorably' with the other commonly fed animal protein sources. However, ...
  • Kropf, Donald H.; Kasten, L.H.; Koch, B.A.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1968)
    Many studies have reported that barrows gain more rapidly than gilts, but gilts excell in carcass muscling and trimness. Recently, considerable interest has been directed toward determining ration protein needs of barrows ...
  • Koch, B.A.; Cowman, G.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1968)
    Kansas swine growers are quite sure' that corn-fed growing-finishing pigs will outperform those fed sorghum grain. Just as many others feel that sorghum grain is equal to corn in swine rations. Most of the time sorghum ...
  • Koch, B.A.; Cowman, G.L.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1968)
    Recent laboratory and research station reports have indicated that 2,2-dichlorovinyl dimethyl phosphate (DDVP) (Shell Dichlorvos) fed to pregnant sows late in gestation may have a favorable effect on the newborn pigs. This ...
  • Koch, B.A.; Howard, R.D.; Kropf, Donald H.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1968)
    More information is needed on the optimum level of protein in sorghum grain-soybean meal rations for swine. Theoretically the protein value of a swine ration should be improved if the most limiting amino acids are added. ...
  • Kropf, Donald H.; Kasten, L.H.; Koch, B.A.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1968)
    Limited work is available on proper protein levels in swine rations when sorghum grain is a major ration component. Remarkable improvement has been made in gaining ability, feed coversion and muscling in swine. Because of ...
  • Kiracofe, G.; Koch, B.A.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1968)
    Several methods of synchronizing estrus have been tried in swine. One of the oldest and most commonly used natural methods is weaning pigs from a group of sows simultaneously. When this is done, the majority of sows will ...
  • Koch, B.A.; Kropf, Donald H.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1968)
    The need for zinc in swine rations has been firmly established. Likewise the inter-relationships between dietary zinc and other minerals, especially calcium, have been well authenticated. However, there are still many ...
  • Cowman, G.L.; Deyoe, C.W.; Koch, B.A.; Pfost, H.B.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1968)
    This paper is a progress report of a research project initiated this past year designed to study the effects of heat and pressure processing of sorghum grain on the performance of swine. The theoretical reasoning behind ...
