  • Jensen, A.H.; Tribble, L.F.; Miller, L. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1966)
    Wheat and corn-rolled oats in various physical forms compared with pigs weaned at 3 weeks of age. Rations of corn and rolled oats were compared with rations containing wheat. All rations were supplemented with protein, ...
  • Menzies, C.S.; Richardson, D.; Cox, R.F. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1959)
    A summary of three years' study of the relationship of physical balance to the utilization of pelleted and nonpelleted fattening lamb rations was reported in Circular 358. Results of this work indicated the following: (l) ...
  • Smith, W.H.; Holland, L.A.; Wheat, J. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1956)
    The purebred Shorthorn cattle breeding project, established to study the production traits and the effects of inbreeding, was continued during the last year. Two inbred lines were established by the use of the two herd ...
  • Pickett, A.G.; Smith, E.F. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1948)
    This test began with good to choice steer calves. The purpose is to use bluestem grass to the best advantage in producing beef. Two of the lots were fed out at the close of the first season's: grazing And the other three ...
  • Menzies, C.M.; Banbury, Evans E.; Elliot, H. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1966)
    The ewe flock is handled in an early lambing program with the breeding season beginning around June 1 and ending September 1. All lambs are sold as milkfat lams during the spring and early summer. Two separate tests were ...

  • 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 ...
  • Aubel, C.E. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1958)
    This experiment was initiated to study the effect of Furazolidone Nf-180 in rations for growing and fattening swine. In this test four lots of fall pigs were self-fed free choice a basal ration of shelled corn and a ...
