  • Simms, D.D.; Bolze, R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1985)
    In order to evaluate whether a 72 mg Ralgro® dosage would improve growth response over 36 mg, 260 suckling steer calves on tow Kansas ranches were assigned to five implant treatments. In trial 1, 72 mg Ralgro® increased ...
  • Epp, M.P.; Greenwood, B.; Blasi, Dale A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010)
    Optimizing growth rate is an important contributor to overall profitability for stocker cattle grazing native Flint Hills pasture. Disease challenges from pinkeye and foot rot have traditionally been problems that ...
  • Riley, Jack G.; Pope, Ronald V. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1986)
    Brahman crossbred and Simmental crossbred calves gained similarly during a 312-day, native range grazing study. Longhorn crossbreds gained less than the Brahman or Simmental crosses but more than the British crossbreds, ...
  • Vargas Vargas, J.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1985)
    Two hundred finishing pigs were used to evaluate wet vs. dryad libitum feeding. Growth rate of finishing pigs was significantly improved (5%) by wet feeding. Feed utilization was improved 4.5% by wet feeding. Dry feeder ...
  • Young, M.G.; Tokach, Michael D.; Goodband, Robert D.; Nelssen, Jim L.; Dritz, Steven S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2002)
    A total of 82 litters were used in a 21-day study to evaluate the effect of injecting litters of pigs with dexamethasone within 24 hours of birth on growth rate from birth to weaning. Experimental treatments consisted of ...
  • Schalles, R.R.; Fleck, A.T.; Kiracofe, G.H.; Corah, L.R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1979)
    Heifers with faster gain the first and second winter (weaning to yearling and 18 months to 2 years old) had better production and reproduction than heifers with low or moderate gains. Gains during the first winter (weaning ...
  • Abdelgadir, I.E.O.; Morrill, J.L.; Stutts, J.A.; Morrill, B.; Johnson, D.E.; Behnke, Keith C. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1984)
    Two trials were conducted to determine the optimum conditions for processing whole soybeans for young calves. In the first trial, laboratory procedures and a nitrogen balance study were used. This information was used ...
  • Sulabo, R.C.; Quackenbush, J.; Goodband, Robert D.; Tokach, Michael D.; DeRouchey, Joel M.; Nelssen, Jim L.; Dritz, Steven S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2008)
    The objective of the study was to determine the effects of 2 different feeding regimens on growth performance, semen production and quality, and longevity of boars in a commercial AI stud. A total of 30 replacement boars ...
  • Allee, G.L.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1971)
    Pigs medicated 5 weeks with TNA-290 and ASP-250 had statistically greater (P<.05) average daily gains and those medicated with ASP-250 had significantly (P<.05) lower feed conversion rations than non-medicated pigs. Feed ...
  • Allee, G.L.; Koch, B.A.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1976)
    Ninety-six young pigs were used to evaluate various antibacterial preparations on rate and efficiency of gain. Each of the antibacterial preparations increased rate of gain over pigs fed the non-medicated basal diet. There ...
  • Allee, G.L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1979)
    Two trials involving 300 finishing pigs (120-220 lbs.) were conducted to evaluate Tylan, Stafac, Lincomix, and Flavomycin by growth rate and feed efficiency. In trial I, none of the antibiotics improved growth rate or feed ...
  • Allee, G.L.; Noll, M. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1978)
    We used 150 Yorkshire finishing pigs averaging 120 lbs initially to evaluate the following antibotics: Tylan, Stafac, Oleandomycin, and Flavomycin on rate and efficiency of gain. The trial ended when pigs within a replicate ...
  • Sulabo, R.C.; Quackenbush, J.; Goodband, Robert D.; Tokach, Michael D.; DeRouchey, Joel M.; Nelssen, Jim L.; Dritz, Steven S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2006)
    There is almost no information on ideal growth rates for adult boars, but estimates can be made if the relationship between boar weight and age is known. Therefore, this study was aimed to predict growth rates in adult ...
  • Nelssen, Jim L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1987)
    Biotechnology has developed a number of compounds that partition nutrients away from fat tissue deposition and towards lean (muscle) tissue accretion in swine. Two compounds that have received considerable research attention ...
  • McKee, M.; Bolsen, K.K.; Conway, K.L.; Fink, G.; Riley, Jack G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1974)
    An 85-day, post weaning growth rate for 30 calves weaned at an average age of 110.5 days was compared with the growth rate of 30 calves nursing their mothers the same period. Average age of the nursing calves at the start ...
  • McKee, M.; Bolsen, K.K.; Schalles, R.R.; Conway, K.L.; Fink, G.; Riley, Jack G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1975)
    Growth rate of 38 calves after being weaned at an average of 91.6 days was compared with growing rate of 37 calves averaging 91.2 days of age and continuing to nurse their mothers the same period. Average daily gains ...
