  1. Bulletin No. 302 - Nutritional inadequacy of beet molasses rations for swine

    The feeding of large amounts of beet molasses to young hogs causes a condition that is characterized by a wobbly gait, and that is frequently fatal. Hog raisers have apparently recognized this condition for a number of years, since a number of farmers have reported it in their animals. Some...

  2. Distance of Nursery Pig Snout and Tails from a Human Observer during an Approachability Test

    Contributor(s):: Shawna Weimar, Anna K Johnson, Kenneth J Stalder, Locke A Karriker, Thomas Fangman

    The objective of this experiment was to determine the distance of nursery pigs snout and tails from a human observer when classified as touched, orientated to the human or s not-orientated during a human-animal interaction test using a digital image collection methodology. A complete randomized...

  3. Gilt and Barrow Approachability Behavior to a Human Observer

    Contributor(s):: Shawna Weimar, Anna K. Johnson, Kenneth J. Stalder, Locke. A Karriker, Thomas Fangman

    The objective of this experiment was to determine if nursery pig sex affected how many pigs touched and orientated to the human or were classified as not-orientated during a human-animal interaction test using a live human observation and a digital image collection methodology. A complete...

    The Department of Animal Science within the biomedical research area is using the pig as a model for Duchenne and Becker muscular dystrophy. Duchenne muscular dystrophy is the leading, fatal, X-linked disease, affecting 1:3,500 male births worldwide. Two tests require the pigs afflicted with...

  5. Mapping and investigation of novel candidate genes for fatness, growth, and feed intake in the pig

    | Contributor(s):: K. S. Kim, M. Malek, E. Grindflek, S. Marklund, Max F. Rothschild

    Five new candidate genes for fatness, growth, and feed intake traits were studied. The genes were chosen based on their presumed biological action for a given trait of interest. A molecular genetics polymerase chain reaction-restriction fragment length polymorphisms (PCR-RFLP) approach was used...

  6. Pig Age and Approachability Behavior to a Human Observer

    | Contributor(s):: Shawna Weimar, Anna K. Johnson, Kenneth J. Stalder, Locke A. Karriker, Thomas Fangman

    The objective of this experiment was to determine if nursery pig age affected how many pigs touched and orientated to a human, or were classified as not-orientated during a human-animal interaction test using live human observation and digital image collection methodology. A complete randomized...
