  • Bell, F.W.; Smith, E.F.; Smith, W.H. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1952)
    Cattle in the same feedlot differ considerably in their rate of gain. These differences in ability to gain can be explained only by difference in characteristics of individual animals, since all are under the same conditions ...
  • Smith, E.F.; Richardson, D.; Fairbanks, G.E.; Boren, Fred W. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1963)
    This is the third year of an experiment designed to investigate factors that affect the feeding value of sorghum silage. Data reported in Circular 383, 1960-61, indicated that almost without exception, average daily gain, ...
  • Bell, F.W.; Mackintosh, D.L.; Pickett, A.G. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1948)
    This is the second trial to study the effect of differences which can be observed in feed calves classified as good to choice. The two lots in this trial were sorted from the 100 range-bred heifer calves purchased last ...
  • Bell, F.W.; Mackintosh, D.L.; Pickett, A.G. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1947)
    The two lots of heifer calves in this test were selected from 75 range bred heifer calves purchased last fall. The 75 heifers were a uniform group, all of which would be classed as good to choice feeder calves. The 10 ...
  • Bell, F.W.; Mackintosh, D.L.; Pickett, A.G. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1949)
    This report is on two lots of heifer calves now on test in the study of the characteristics of feeder calves which are associated with differences in: 1. Rate of gain 2. Kind and amount of feeds required to produce ...
  • Bell, F.W.; Mackintosh, D.L.; Pickett, A.G. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1948)
    The two lots in this trial were selected from 75 range-bred heifer calves purchased in November, 1946 for feeding tests at this station. These calves were a uniform group classified as good to choice feeder calves. The ...
  • Mackintosh, D.L.; Watt, D.B. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1949)
    The enormous increase in the use of frozen foods and in the number of frozen locker plants offering freezer storage to the individual. together, have emphasized the need for more research in the field of frozen meat ...
  • Smith, E.F.; Parrish, D.B.; Splitter, E.J. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1953)
    The object of this test was to learn what effect withholding salt, has on fattening calves. Twenty good quality Hereford steer calves were divided into two lots of 10 steers each and were self-fed a mixture of 1 pound ...
  • Smith, E.F.; Koch, B.A.; Boren, Fred W. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1959)
    Heifers used in this experiment were the light end of calves purchased from the Pumray Ranch, Logan, N.M., the fall of 1957. Twenty-one heifers were placed in two groups on the basis of live weight and grade. One lot ...
  • Smith, E.F.; Good, D.L.; Cox, R.F.; Mackintosh, D.L. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1951)
    The purpose of this experiment is to develop a desirable system of fattening heifer calves similar to the deferred full-feeding system for steer calves. The system developed for good quality steer calves consists of three ...
  • Pickett, A.G.; Smith, E.F. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1949)
    The previous tests with heifer calves have been completed. Pasture was not used in these tests but instead, heifer calves were fed a full feed of grain, three-fourths feed, one-half feed, one-fourth feed and no grain, ...
  • Pickett, A.G.; Weber, A.L. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1947)
    The two preceding tests with heifer calves were conducted without the use of grass. Varying amounts of grain and protein supplements were fed with silage during the winter season and then a full feed of grain was used ...
  • Pickett, A.G.; Smith, E.F. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1948)
    Eight lots of heifers are being used in the current test. All eight lots have been wintered on a daily ration of 20 pounds Atlas sorgo silage, full access to prairie hay in racks, and 8 protein supplement. Dehydrated ...
  • Pickett, A.G. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1948)
    The two preceding tests with heifer calves were conducted without the use of grass. Varying amounts of grain and protein supplement were fed with silage during the winter season and then a full feed of grain was used ...
  • Smith, E.F.; Good, D.L.; Pickett, A.G. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1950)
    The purpose of this experiment is to develop a desirable system or systems of fattening heifer calves similar to the Deferred Full Feeding system for steer calves. The system developed for good quality steer calves consisted ...
  • Baker, F.H.; Smith, E.F.; Cox, R.F. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1954)
    Milo grain and sorghum silage are extensively used in fattening rations for beef cattle in Kansas. A fattening ration composed of milo grain and sorghum silage contains sufficient protein to meet the recommended protein ...
  • Weber, A.D. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1946)
    In tests conducted at the Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station previous to the one reported herein, it was found that heifer calves fed 4 to 5 pounds of grain per head daily during the winter were too fleshy to turn on ...
  • Jensen, A.H.; Koch, B.A.; Harbers, L.H.; Miller, L.A. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1965)
    Three experiments were conducted to determine the efficacy of certain feed additives, alone or in various combinations, in improving performance of pigs weaned at 4 weeks of age. In the first two, each treatment group of ...
  • Menzies, C.S.; Erhart, A.B. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1958)
    Two lots of lambs were grazed on wheat pasture for the entire 123-day experimental period. Lambs in one of these, lot 5, were also shorn at the start of the test on November 7. One-third of the lambs in each lot received a ...
  • Smith, E.F.; Koch, B.A.; Good, D.L.; Boren, Fred W. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1959)
    This experiment was designed to collect data in regard to the optimum level of alfalfa hay feeding for calves wintered on bluestem pasture. One group of heifers was fed twice as much alfalfa hay as another, but ...
