    Duroc Jersey and Poland China littermates of the same sex were used in each trial; however, males were used in trials 1 and 3, and females in trials 2 and 4. The pigs were selected for uniformity as much as possible and ...
  • Koch, B.A.; Yu, J.T. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-05-06)
    Pigs used were both barrows and gilts, either Duroc or Black Poland China breeds. All pigs used in the study were approximately the same age when they went on test. The heavier pigs were assigned to lot 4. They were self-fed ...
  • Koch, B.A.; Nam, T. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-05-04)
    Arsanilic acid is one of many feed additives approved by the Food and Drug Administration for use in swine rations. Results from an uncontrolled feeding demonstration suggested that arsanilic acid effectively increased ...

    With improved harvesting machinery, farmers tend to harvest grain earlier to prevent loss by lodging or inclement weather. This often results in grain being too high in moisture for normal storage, and means that it must ...
  • Koch, B.A.; Smith, E.F.; Cox, R.F. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-10-31)
    Bringing cattle to a full feed of grain in the shortest time possible is one way to reduce the total time they require to reach market weight. Producers are always faced with the problem of bringing cattle on feed too ...
  • Pfost, H.B.; Smith, E.F.; Richardson, D.; Boren, Fred W. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-04-28)
    the only variable planned in the diet was type of molasses, which composed 16% of the self-fed roughage-concentrate mixture. Cane molasses was used in two lots; hemicelluloses extract in two lots. The self-fed roughage-concentrate ...
  • Smith, E.F.; Richardson, D.; Deyoe, C.W.; Curtis, R.G.; Boren, Fred W. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-05-04)
    Choice grade Hereford steer calves in this test came from near Alden, Kansas, and were assigned to treatments on a random-weight basis. All lots received the same experimental diet except 10 percent molasses was substituted ...
  • Tuma, H.J.; Kropf, Donald H.; Kolstad, S.P.; Mackintosh, D.L. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-04-28)
    Information on animal growth and development, although complex and not fully understood, is necessary to determine the stage at which a beef animal will produce the most desirable carcass. True growth involves an increase ...
  • Good, D. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-05-06)
    America owes a great deal of the founders of the Hereford, Angus and Shorthorn breeds of beef cattle, the dominant U.S. beef breeds. Early Scotch and English breeders in developing the beef breeds aimed to breed cattle ...

    Cobalt is a trace mineral element which is essential to the health and well-being of animals. If it is deficient in the ration, it should be supplied. A cobalt bullet, which is placed in the rumen, was developed in Australia ...
  • Koch, R.A.; Smith, E.F.; Richardson, D.; Boren, Fred W. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-09-07)
    Twenty-seven head of Hereford heifers of good to choice quality were used in this trial. They previously had been used to study various winter treatments. Treatments were as follows: control lot. Cracked sorghum grain and ...
  • Koch, B.A.; Smith, E.F.; Richardson, D.; Cox, R.F. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-09-20)
    Earlier work at this station indicated that supplemental trace minerals may be of value in some instances. Introduction of the so-called cobalt “bullet” has made it possible to study one of these trace minerals alone as a ...
  • Bell, T.D.; Smith, W.H. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2012-01-19)
    Approximately 1000 commercial ewes of different ages and types, and 400 purebred ewes of three different breeds, were included in the study. Three hormone preparations available on the market and similar to others being ...
  • Aubel, C.E. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2012-01-25)
    In many parts of Kansas, sorghum grains are used extensively for hog feeding. In previous feeding tests with hogs at this station, ground kalir grain was shown to have about 90 percent of the value of corn. In a more recent ...
  • Aubel, C.E. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-12-05)
    Sorghum grains are grown extensively in parts of Kansas for hog feed. In previous feeding test with hogs at this station, some sorghum grains have given excellent results compared with corn. In 1950 Westland and Midland ...
  • Aubel, C.E. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-11-07)
    In many parts of Kansas sorghum grains are grown extensively. In previous feeding tests with hogs at this station, some sorghum grains gave excellent results compared with corn. In 1950 Westland milo and Midland milo ...
  • Aubel, C.E. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-10-14)
    Five lots of pigs were self-fed free-choice in dry-lot. All lots received a mixed animal and plant protein supplement of 4 parts tankage, 4 parts soybean meal, 1 part linseed meal, and 1 part alfalfa meal. The ...
  • Aubel, C.E. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-11-07)
    This experiment was conducted in the summer of 1955 with spring pigs on pasture. Its object was Ito compare the quality of the two varieties of sudangrass. Two lots were fed shelled corn and a mixed animal and plant ...
  • Aubel, C.E. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-12-05)
    This experiment in the summer of 1954 used spring pigs on pasture. It was to compare the quality of the two varieties of sudangrass. Two lots were fed shelled corn and a mixed animal and plant protein supplement composed ...
  • Aubel, C.E. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-10-14)
    This experiment to compare two methods of watering pigs was conducted in the summer of 1956 with spring pigs on pasture. Two lots of 10 pigs each were fed shelled corn and, a mixed animal and plant protein supplement ...
