Animal Husbandry Through The Years At The University Of Nebraska, William J. Loeffel Apr 1962

Animal Husbandry Through The Years At The University Of Nebraska, William J. Loeffel

Animal Science Department News

From the establishment of the Agricultural College in 1872 to the present day (1962).

Foreword
Introduction
The Agricultural College
The Crowning Years
The Research Program
Farmers Institutes
Extension Activities
Emergency Programs
Extra Curricular Activities
Personnel
Publications

This review is limited primarily to the Animal Husbandry Department. However, in an organization as closely knit as the College of Agriculture, it is impossible not to make occasional reference to other departments and activities. The narrative is confined largely to the organization at Lincoln, although some reference is made of work and workers at outlying stations.

Review Of Sex Ratios And Age Ratios In North American Dncks, Paul A. Johnsgard Jan 1962

Review Of Sex Ratios And Age Ratios In North American Dncks, Paul A. Johnsgard

Papers in Ornithology

This bulletin is by far the most elaborate and comprehensive of any of the publications dealing with waterfowl age and sex ratios that have appeared to date, and represents the presentation and analysis of sex and age ratio data accumulated by the Illinois Natural History Survey over the last 24 years. The several people concerned are to be congratulated for bringing this material into publishable form, and it is commendable that the National Science Foundation undertook the printing costs of this extensively tabulated and illustrated bulletin.


Evaluation Of Sires Available Through Planned Mating, L. Dale Van Vleck, C. R. Henderson, H. W. Carter Jan 1962

Evaluation Of Sires Available Through Planned Mating, L. Dale Van Vleck, C. R. Henderson, H. W. Carter

Faculty Papers and Publications in Animal Science

There is some concern that methods of sire evaluation which utilize contemporary stablemate averages can be biased by differential genetic merit of the mates of these sires. A little reflection, however, indicates that even if the cows to which some sires are mated are more highly selected than the mates of other sires, this differential merit will not affect seriously the ranking of sires according to the evaluation of their progeny. Until the present, data have not been readily available with which to study the seriousness of this problem. The present study does not deal with the question generally, but ...


Sire Evaluation From Five-Month Daughter Records, L. Dale Van Vleck Jan 1962

Sire Evaluation From Five-Month Daughter Records, L. Dale Van Vleck

Faculty Papers and Publications in Animal Science

The chief advantages of sire evaluation based on five-month daughter records are: 1. Genetic progress is inversely proportional to the turnover rate in testing bulls so that if this interval is shortened by 10%, the rate of genetic progress will be increased by 11%. The turnover period can be shortened with the use of 5-month records from about 50 months to 45 months—a decrease of 10% in time. 2. Genetic progress is also related to how many top bulls are saved and how many poor ones are culled out of all those sampled. In other words, the more bulls ...

Effect Of Levels Of Meat And Bone Scraps On Growth Rate And Feed Efficiency Of Growing-Finishing Swine, E. R. Peo, Jr., D. B. Hudman Jan 1962

Effect Of Levels Of Meat And Bone Scraps On Growth Rate And Feed Efficiency Of Growing-Finishing Swine, E. R. Peo, Jr., D. B. Hudman

Faculty Papers and Publications in Animal Science

Many investigations have shown that soybean meal when properly supplemented can replace meat and bone scraps as a major source of protein in swine rations (Lepley et al., 1950; Terrill et al., 1954; Rohlf, 1954; Meade and Hanson, 1957; Meade et al., 1958; Becker et al., 1960). The importance of this finding is emphasized by the work of Bloss et al. (1953), Terrill et al. (1954), Meade and Teter (1957) and Becker and Jensen (1961) who reported a significant depression in growth rate and feed efficiency of swine fed rations containing relatively high levels of meat and bone scraps.


Parameters For Milk Yield And For Percents Of Ash, Dry Matter, Fat And Protein In Sows, W. G. Pond, L. Dale Van Vleck, D. A. Hartman Jan 1962

Parameters For Milk Yield And For Percents Of Ash, Dry Matter, Fat And Protein In Sows, W. G. Pond, L. Dale Van Vleck, D. A. Hartman

Faculty Papers and Publications in Animal Science

Milk was collected separately by machine from four to six glands on nine Yorkshire and Berkshire sows 2 or 3 days after farrowing and at weekly intervals throughout 6 weeks of lactation. Milk yield was measured following intramuscular injection of oxytocin, and the percent of ash, dry matter, fat and protein in the milk from each gland was determined. The average milk yield per gland, following a 1-hour period during which the pigs had been removed from the sow reached a peak of 74.6 gm. 3 weeks after farrowing. The ash content was 0.79% 2 or 3 days ...


Studies On Parorchis Acanthus (Trematoda: Digenea) As A Biological Control For The Southern Oyster Drill, Thais Haemastoma, Nelson R. Cooley Jan 1962

Studies On Parorchis Acanthus (Trematoda: Digenea) As A Biological Control For The Southern Oyster Drill, Thais Haemastoma, Nelson R. Cooley

US Fish & Wildlife Publications

Events in the attack on the southern oyster drill, Thais haemastoma, by miracidia of the digenetic trematode, Parorchis acanthus, are described.

Infection rates in wild drill populations of various Gulf Coast localities from Florida to Texas were low, but intensity of infection in individual drills was high and caused castration. Infection rates in laboratory experiments were high, but intensities were low.

Pathology of natural infections in drills is described. The infection lasts at least two years, possibly even for life.

Natural infection rates of juvenile herring gulls (Larus argentatus) , ring-billed gulls (L. delawarensis), and juvenile laughing gulls (L. atricilla) are ...
