  • Bolsen, K.; Smith, R.; Ilg, H.; Axe, D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1986)
    The response of corn silage to the additive, Silo-Best Soluble®, was not consistent for the farm silo criteria measured. Ensiling temperatures and chemical compositions were similar for control and treated silages, except ...
  • Bolsen, K.; Ilg, H.; Smith, R.; Hoover, J.; Axe, D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1985)
    Cattle fed drought-stressed corn silage gained about 10% slower but were just as efficient as cattle fed irrigated corn silage. Because the irrigated corn out yielded the drought corn (17.4 VS. 8.2 tons per acre), the ...
  • Jacques, K.; Axe, D.; Harris, T.; Harmon, D.; Bolsen, K. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1986)
    One percent sodium bicarbonate increased intake of a 50% silage-50% grain ration, but had no effect on intake of an 84% sorghum silage ration. Adding concentrate (rolled sorghum grain) lowered rumen pH slightly and decreased ...
  • Axe, D.; Bolsen, K.; Lee, R.; Herron, George M. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1986)
    Wheat and high moisture sorghum grain were fed singly and in two combinations in a 121-day feedlot trial at the Garden City Branch Experiment Station. Feed efficiency improved with increasing proportions of wheat in ...
  • Axe, D.; Ilg, H.; Bolsen, K.; Behnke, Keith C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1980)
    Two finishing trials with heifers and steers were conducted to determine the value of grain dust (GD) to replace cracked corn and to compare soybean meal and urea as protein supplements. Results of the 104-day heifer ...
  • Axe, D.; Spire, M.; Riley, Jack G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1984)
    Three medication programs for newly purchased feeder calves were compared and found to be similar in effectiveness. There was considerable variation in cost between the three medication programs which indicates a potential ...
  • Bolsen, K.; Axe, D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1984)
    High-moisture forage sorghum silage was fed to 108 steer calves to measure the effect of sodium bicarbonate and feed flavor (Omniflavor®) on calf performance. Overall performance was similar for all three rations by the ...
  • Axe, D.; Bolsen, K.; Jacques, K.; Harmon, D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1985)
    Supplementing forage sorghum silage rations with sodium bicarbonate (NaHCO3 ) improved performance of growing cattle over the control supplement. However, neither NaHCO 3 nor sodium bentonite supplementation to corn ...
  • Bolsen, K.; Ilg, H.; Axe, D.; Thompson, W. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1980)
    Sudangrass, pearl millet, sorghum-sudangrass, and forage sorghum silages and sorghum-sudan hay were full-fed to yearling steers in a 90-day trial. Forage sorghum was harvested in the dough stage; the other four forages, ...
  • Bolsen, K.; Ilg, H.; Axe, D.; Smith, R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1985)
    Adding urea or limestone to forage sorghum silage increased lactic and acetic acids compared with untreated silage. Urea also elevated the ensiling temperature and increased the DM loss in the silo. Although calves fed ...
