  • Moyer, W.A.; Baker, F.H.; Folse, D.S.; Smith, E.F.; Cox, R.F. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1955)
    The first experiment was conducted during the winter of 1953-54 with 60 heifer calves. The heifers were raised near Snyder, Texas, and delivered to Manhattan .December 1, 1953. The heifers were assigned December17, 1953, ...
  • Weber, A.D.; Mackintosh, D.L.; Good, D.L.; Smith, E.F. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1951)

  • Cox, R.F. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1947)
    In several years of experimental studies of physical balance as a factor in determining the value of lamb fattening rations, more than 2000 lambs have been fed, and a wide variety of feeds have been employed. The ...
  • Ibsen, H.L. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1946)
    It is a well-known fact that Aberdeen-Angus cattle breed true for the polled characteristic. By that I mean that they never produce a calf with horns. Sometimes a purebred Angus bull will have scurs, but from a ...
  • Drake, C.L.; Perry, H.B.; Smith, E.F.; Good, D.L. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1967)
    Poloxalene has proved to be an effective agent to prevent legume bloat in cattle, however, intake of the compound at regular intervals during the day is important. Intake twice daily at approximately 12-hour intervals has ...
  • Hix, E.L.; Bell, T.D.; Good, A.L.; Parrish, D.B. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1951)
    Many of the feed lambs coming into Kansas have not had access to salt for several weeks and some of the lamb feeders do not add salt to their lambs fattening rations because of the possible losses in getting the lambs again ...
  • Smith, W.H. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1963)
    The purebred livestock industry was well established in the United States 50 years ago. Breed registries were active in promoting breeds and maintaining pedigree records then. Livestock shows were well established in the ...
  • Richardson, D. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1963)
    Not one nutrient has been created, yet tremendous progress has been made in the relatively new field of animal nutrition, primarily by scientific investigations that have more clearly defined nutrient needs and interrelationships ...
  • Aubel, C.E. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1956)
    A second experiment was conducted with fall pigs in the dry lot. Two lots of pigs were used. One lot received the RQ-20 in the protein mixture at the rate of 3 pounds to 600 pounds of supplement. The mixture was self-fed ...

  • Bell, T.D.; Hix, E.L.; Erhart, A.B.; Parrish, D.B.; Underbjerg, G.K.L. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1953)
    Experiments designed to test the need and value of salt in the rations of feeder lambs have been conducted by the Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station for the past three years. The tests have shown that feedlot gains ...
  • Bell, T.D.; Holland, L.A. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1953)
    During the fall of 1951, ewe lambs representing the three types of ewes commonly used in Kansas were secured from southern Utah. One-third of these 140 lambs were of straight Rambouillet or finewool breeding and similar ...
  • Jensen, A.H.; Koch, B.A. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1965)
    The value of a feed protein is determined by its content of available essential amino acids. For example, in relation to the pigs’ needs, corn and milo proteins are definitely deficient in the amino acid lysine. Selection ...
  • Richardson, D.; Akram, M. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1964)
    Opinion differs on the value of single or mixed sources of added protein in beef rations. This experiment was to determine the percentage total nitrogen and protein nitrogen present in rumen ingesta of steers fed a single ...
  • Richardson, D.; Tsien, W.S. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1963)
    Crude protein, or protein as the term is commonly used, represents all nitrogen-containing compounds in the feed. True protein is that portion of the protein which has been formed by the combining of amino acids. The value ...
