  • Singh, A.R.; Schalles, R.R.; Smith, W.H.; Kessler, F.B. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1969)
    The influence of cow weight at parturition and during the lactation on preweaning performance of calves was evaluated. Hereford cattle at the Fort Hays Branch Experiment Station were used. Purebred sires had been used ...
  • DeGeer, C.V.; Smith, E.F.; Richardson, D.; Cox, R.F.; Boren, Fred W. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1964)
    Previous work indicated sorghum grain fattening rations supplemented with 0.5 pound per head daily of soybean oil meal produced less efficient gains but carcasses about equal to those from heifers fed 1 pound of soybean ...
  • Corah, L.R.; Plegge, S.D.; Francis, G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1980)
    Implanting at an alternate location (in the muscle or fat pad at the base of the ear) or crushing the pellets did not appear to cause side effects or adversely affect animal performance. However, implanting at the ...
  • Mark, D.R.; Schroeder, Ted C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2002)
    The effect of several weather conditions on average daily gain (ADG) and profits is quantified for typical steers and heifers fed in commercial feedyards in Western Kansas from 1980 to 1999. ADG predictions for particular ...
  • Ames, D.R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1976)
    Feedlot data on 202 lots involving approximately 40,000 steers collected for five years were used to characterize feedlot performance each month of the year. Intake, average daily gain (ADG), and feed efficiency were ...
  • Smith, W.H.; Akinokun, J.; Schalles, R.R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1968)
    Two inbred lines of purebred Shorthorn cattle were established and progressively developed, to study production traits and effects of inbreeding. Inbreeding was initiated in the Wernace Premier Line in 1949 and in the ...
  • Singh, A.R.; Schalles, R.R.; Smith, W.H.; Kessler, F.B. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1969)
    The ability of beef cows to produce heavy, vigorous and good quality calves every year is one of their most important economic traits. Feeding practices have been reported to influence average daily gain (ADG) and ...
  • Cochran, B.; Kuhl, G.; DelCurto, T.; Corah, L.; Vanzant, E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1988)
    Limit-feeding a soybean meal/milo creep supplement (1696 crude protein, average 3.096 salt) was compared with ad libitum consumption of the same supplement without salt or with no supplementation. Little difference was ...
  • Lee, T.; Mamedova, Laman K.; Wileman, Benjamin W.; Thomson, Daniel U.; Bradford, Barry J.; Reinhardt, Christopher D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2011)
    Anabolic implants in finishing beef cattle offer significant return on investment. Anabolic implants improve average daily gain feed efficiency in pasture and feedlot cattle. One way growth-promoting implants stimulate ...
  • Burson, D.E.; Hunt, Melvin C.; Hayward, L.H.; Kastner, Curtis L.; Kropf, Donald H.; Allen, Dell M. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1979)
    We assigned 112 Angus yearling steers to 14 nutritional treatments including control. Submaintenance, and 12 different combinations of ration energy (low, medium or high) and feeding period (56,91, 119, 147, or 175 days). ...
  • Allee, G.L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1977)
    One hundred twenty-six crossbred pigs averaging 11.7 kg. (25.7 lbs.) were used to determine the effects of energy density (added fat or fiber) and calorie-protein, calorie-lysine, and calorie-nutrient ratios of rations on ...
  • Glaze, J.B. Jr.; Schalles, R.R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1995)
    Performance records of 1459 Polled Hereford cattle born from 1967 through 1979 were analyzed to estimate genetic parameters and the direct and correlated responses that were due to selection for feed conversion. Her ...
  • Richardson, D.; Baker, F.H.; Cox, R.F. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1955)
    Twenty Hereford heifer calves were divided as equally as possible on the basis of size, weight, and type into two lots of 10 animals each. Atlas sorghum silage was used as the roughage and the amount fed was adjusted to ...
  • Richardson, D.; Smith, E.F.; Koch, B.A.; Boren, Fred W. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1962)
    This was our second test to determine the value of various enzyme preparations added to beef cattle rations. The first involved amylase and a combination of amylase and protease. Amylase apparently depressed the appetite ...
