    A digestion trial was conducted with twelve steers which were allotted into three lots of four steers each. A ration of Atlas sorgo silage, cottonseed meal and milo grain was fed in all lots. Whole grain was fed in lot ...
  • Bell, F.W.; Mackintosh, D.L.; Pickett, A.G. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2012-01-30)
    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, 2012-01-30)
    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 ...

    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, 2012-01-30)
    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 ...
  • Pickett, A.G.; Weber, A.L. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2012-01-30)
    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, 2012-01-25)
    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.; Smith, E.F. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2012-01-30)
    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 ...

  • Smith, E.F.; Cox, R.F.; Pickett, A.G. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2012-01-04)
    The object of this test was to compare different protein supplements and methods of feeding them to yearling steers on dry bluestem pasture during- the winter. The steers were good to choice quality Hereford yearlings. ...
  • Pickett, A.G.; Smith, E.F. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2012-01-25)
    Considerable interest has developed in the possibilities of self feeding a protein supplement to cattle on grass. Self feeding is a labor saving and eliminates the need for rounding up cattle every day. Under usual ...
