  • Wheat, J.D.; Menzies, C.S.; Holland, L.A. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1956)
    July 6, 1955, two adult guinea pig males each was implanted with 24 milligrams of stilbestrol. A young female that previously had given birth to a litter was placed in the cage with these males, but for some time they ...
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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, W.H.; Wheat, J.D.; Spies, H.G. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1965)
    The purebred Shorthorn cattle breeding program was continued during 1964 according to the plan initiated in 1949. Inbreeding of the two lines has been continued. The Wernuere Premier Line is in its fifth generation and the ...
  • Smith, W.H.; Wheat, J.D.; Spies, H.G. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1966)
    The purebred Shorthorn beef cattle breeding experiment was initiated to study inheritance of production traits, to evaluate effects of inbreeding, and to explore the feasibility of using inbred lines for breeding improvement ...
  • Smith, W.H.; Wheat, J.D. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1961)
    The purebred Shorthorn cattle breeding project was continued during 1960 according to the breeding program adopted when the study was initiated in 1949. Two inbred lines were established and have been continued. The Wernacre ...
  • Smith, W.H.; Wheat, J.D.; Spies, H.; Gottlieb, H.A. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1962)
    The purebred Shorthorn cattle breeding program was continued during 1961 according to the breeding program initiated in 1949. Inbreeding of the two lines has been continued. The Wernacre Premier line is in its fourth ...
  • Smith, W.H.; Wheat, J.D.; Spies, H.G. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1963)
    The purebred Shorthorn cattle breeding program was continued during 1962 without modification of breeding plans. Inbreeding was continued in the two lines. The Wernacre Premier line is in its firth generation and the Mercury ...
  • Smith, W.H.; Wheat, J.D.; Spies, H.G. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1964)
    The purebred Shorthorn beef cattle breeding project was continued during 1963 without modification. Inbreeding was continued in the two separate lines, which have remained closed to outside breeding since the study was ...
  • Mackintosh, D.L.; Kropf, Donald H.; Good, D.L.; Wheat, J.D.; Teagarden, J.; Harrison, D.L. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1964)
    Seventy head of fed Hereford steers, sired by four different bulls, were slaughtered in Kansas City, and the rib cut from 40 (10 for each sire) returned to Manhattan for detailed analysis. Cooking data are now available ...
  • Holland, L.A.; Wheat, J.D.; Smith, E.F.; Smith, W.H.; Good, D.L.; Cox, R.F. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1957)
    The Department of Animal Husbandry purchases steer calves each fall to be wintered and grazed the following summer in studies of different methods of managing bluestem pastures. This affords opportunities to study the ...
  • Holland, L.A.; Wheat, J.D.; Smith, E.F.; Smith, W.H.; Good, D.L.; Cox, R.F. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1958)
    Feeder grade, shade of color, and weight are some factors considered by cattlemen who purchase or produce yearling steers to pasture. The objective of this study is to determine the relationship of summer gains of ...
  • Wheat, J.D.; Menzies, C.S.; Holland, L.A. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1956)
    This study was to determine the response of young guinea pigs to stilbestrol added to the basic ration of ground oats, tankage, bonemeal, ground alfalfa hay, and freshly-cut, green alfalfa. Eight litters of guinea pigs, ...
  • Richardson, D.; Mackintosh, D.L.; Wheat, J.D.; Menzies, C.S.; Cox, R.F. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1956)
    The addition of stilbestrol to a high-energy fattening ration has consistently demonstrated its ability to increase rate of gain with older or heavier feeder cattle. At the time this test was initiated, there was ...
