  • Sonon, R.N.; Dalke, B.S.; Holthaus, D.L.; Bonilla, D.R.; Pfaff, L.; Bolsen, K.K.; Young, Matthew A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1993)
    Rainfall was much above and temperature much below normal during the 1992 growing season. Both whole-plant dry matter (DM) and grain yields were excellent for all 11 hybrids. The two short, mid-maturing, forage sorghums ...
  • Dalke, B.S.; Sonon, R.N. Jr.; Holthaus, D.L.; Pfaff, L.; Bolsen, K.K.; Young, Matthew A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1994)
    Agronomic and cattle performance traits were measured for the following silages produced in 1992: irrigated Pioneer 3377 corn, ensiled with or without Biotal® silage inoculant; DeKalb 42Y grain sorghum; and Cargill ...
  • Sonon, R.N. Jr.; Dalke, B.S.; Holthaus, D.L.; Pfaff, L.; Bolsen, K.K.; Young, Matthew A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1994)
    This experiment was conducted to determine the effect of grain content on the nutritive value of corn silage. Whole-plant silage dry matter (DM) increased, whereas neutral detergent fiber (NDF) and acid detergent fiber ...
  • Dalke, B.S.; Sonon, R.N. Jr.; Holthaus, D.L.; Bolsen, K.K.; Young, Matthew A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1996)
    This experiment was conducted to determine the effect of grain content on the nutritive value of whole-plant grain sorghum silage. Silage dry matter (DM), organic matter (OM), and crude protein (CP) contents increased ...
  • Dalke, B.S.; Bolsen, K.K.; Sonon, R.N. Jr.; Holthaus, D.L.; Young, Matthew A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1994)
    Three whole-plant sorghum silages, each with or without 25% added rolled grain sorghum were fed to six medium-framed, ruminally cannulated steers in a 6 × 6 Latin square design. The grain sorghum silage rations (DeKalb ...
  • Sonon, R.N.; Dalke, B.S.; Holthaus, D.L.; Bonilla, D.R.; Pfaff, L.; Boyer, John E.; Brent, B.E.; Bolsen, K.K.; Young, Matthew A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1993)
    In 1992, 24 corn hybrids were grown under both irrigated and dryland conditions and were harvested at 90% of the kernel milk line. Growing condition and hybrid significantly affected plant height and the number of days ...
  • Holthaus, D.L.; Brent, B.E.; Pfaff, L.; Bolsen, K.K.; Young, Matthew A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1995)
    The top 3 ft of silage from 127 horizontal silos was sampled at three locations across the width of the silo during a 4-year period (1990 through 1993). Ninety-six percent of the silages were either corn or forage ...
  • Holthaus, D.L.; Bonilla, D.R.; Pfaff, L.; Haverkamp, D.; Dalke, B.S.; Sonon, R.N.; Budiongo, K.; Bolsen, K.K.; Young, Matthew A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1993)
    Alfalfa silages were made in pilot- and farm-scale silos, and five sealing treatments were compared. After 90 days, sealing dramatically reduced DM losses at the 5 and 10 in. depths in the farm silos and at the 0 to ...
  • Holthaus, D.L.; Young, Matthew A.; Pfaff, L.; Brent, B.E.; Boyer, John E.; Bolsen, K.K. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1994)
    Alfalfa silages were made in pilot- and farm-scale silos, and five sealing treatments were compared. After 90 days, sealing dramatically reduced dry matter (DM) losses at the 5 and 10 inch depths in the farm silos and ...
  • Holthaus, D.L.; Dalke, B.S.; Pfaff, L.; Boyer, John E.; Bolsen, K.K.; Young, Matthew A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1995)
    Corn and forage sorghum silages were stored in small bunker silos for 180 days. Dry matter (DM) and organic matter (OM) losses, fermentation characteristics , in-situ DM digestibility, and temperatures were measured ...
  • Dalke, B.S.; Sonon, R.N. Jr.; Holthaus, D.L.; Bolsen, K.K.; Young, Matthew A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1995)
    One hundred twenty medium-framed steers were fed one of six high (90%) concentrate rations: control (0), 5, 10, or 15% pelleted wheat middlings (WM) replacing the concentrate (dry rolled corn) and 5 or 10% pelleted WM ...
