    One of the major problems confronting cattlemen is control of the occurrence of respiratory diseases such as shipping fever, colds, nasal congestion. and pneumonia. These respiratory conditions are especially troublesome ...
  • Smith, E.F.; Cox, R.F.; Good, D.L.; Mackintosh, D.L. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1951)
    The purpose of this study is to develop a system of fattening heifers for feeders who do not have native pasture or have no pasture. The plan of production is to buy good quality heifer calves in the fall, winter them well ...
  • Bell, T.D.; Smith, W.H.; Erhart, A.B.; Gardner, A.W.; Mackintosh, D.L.; Soule, R. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1955)
    In the lamb-feeding tests at the Garden City Branch Station during the 1953-54 feeding season, one lot of 48 lambs was given stilbestrol implants of varying sizes at the beginning of the feeding period. Another lot of ...
  • Baker, F.H.; Richardson, D.; Harris, J.O.; Cox, R.F.; Bowman, O.M. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1955)
    Forty head of choice-quality steer calves were used in the wintering phase of this test. These calves were part of a shipment from the Lonker Ranch, Medicine Lodge, Kan. The steers were assigned to lots on the basis of ...

    The rumen, or paunch, of cattle and sheep normally contains innumerable microorganisms. It has long been recognized that these microscopic organisms help break down complex carbohydrates such as fiber and help synthesize ...
  • Aubel, C.E. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1948)
    At the Livestock Feeders' Day last year, data were presented on the use of loose salt in swine fattening rations when the pigs were self-fed free choice a ration of shelled corn, tankage, and alfalfa hay. It was shown ...
  • Aubel, C.E. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1947)
    The Department of Animal Husbandry has recently received a number of requests for information on the need of salt for fattening pigs when the ration was corn and tankage with alfalfa hay or pasture. The answer to ...
  • Nelson, E.A.; Smith, W.H.; Menzies, C.S. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1958)
    The experimental sheep used in conjunction with studies of summer fertility of sheep at the Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station consist of a commercial flock of approximately 136 head of western ewes of three predominant ...
  • Aubel, C.E. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1947)
    Protein supplements are essential to profitable pork production whether it be the maintenance of the breeding herd, growing the pigs, or fattening pigs for market. Previous tests at this station have shown the advantage and ...
  • Koch, B.A.; Smith, E.F.; Cox, R.F.; Richardson, D.; Walker, G.L. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1958)
    The steers used in this study were implanted with either stilbestrol or Synovex at the start of the wintering period. The results of the first 112 days of the wintering period were reported in Circular 349. This report ...

  • Koch, B.A.; Smith, E.F.; Richardson, D.; McCartor, M.M. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1958)
    Recent experimental work with chemical tranquilizers has indicated that these substances may be of value in the fattening ration of beef cattle under certain conditions. Theoretically at least, the chemical tranquilizers ...
  • Menzies, C.; Hillman, M.; Lenhart, D. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1963)
    Forty-two crossbred lambs sired by Suffolk rams and out of commercial fine-wool ewes were used. Twenty-one were implanted with 3 mgs. Stilbestrol each. Lambs averaged 24 days of age when started on test, February 17. They ...
