    Each of two lots was 24’ x 92’, one completely surfaced with concrete; the other, soil except for a 24’ x 16’ concrete feeding floor where the cattle stood to eat from a fence line feeder.
  • Menzies, C.S.; Ahlschwede, G.; Wheat, J.D.; Mackintosh, D.L.; Kropf, Donald H. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1965)
    Data was collected on 91 lambs of known breeding born during the fall, 1963. The lambs were from ewes in the original fine-wool flock and were sired by 10 performance-tested Hampshire rams. This was the ewes fifth lamb crop.
  • Menzies, C.S.; Wheat, J.D.; Mackintosh, D.L.; Kropf, Donald H. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1964)
    Data were collected on 94 lambs of known breeding born the fall of 1962. The lams were from ewes in the original fine-wool flock sired by eight unrelated Suffolk yearling rams. This was the ewes fourth lam crop.
  • Hillman, M.; Menzies, C.S.; Wheat, J.D.; Mackintosh, D.L.; Merkel, R.A. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1962)
    This is a continuous project to the North-Central-50 Regional Sheep Breeding Project. The Kansas State Project was initiated to determine relationships between various carcass measurements and live animal traits, to estimate ...

    This is a contributing project to the North Central-50 Regional Sheep Breeding Project. The Kansas State project was initiated in the spring of 1959 to determine relationships between various carcass measurements and live ...
  • Smith, E.F.; Richardson, D.; Deyoe, C.W. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1966)
    The finishing ration for yearling steers should contain a minimum of about 10% protein. Sorghum grain frequently contains 10% protein; this test was to determine if such sorghum grain meets protein requirements. The ...
