    The production of sorghum silage in Kansas has, during the past 20 years, grown from an insignificant source of farm income to one of major proportions. The total value of sorghums produced for silage and forage is about ...
  • Smith, E.F.; Koch, B.A.; Richardson, D.; Cox, R.F.; Boren, Fred W. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-09-20)
    This is the first year of an experiment designed to investigate the value of a complete pelleted ration for fattening cattle. Since Kansas has an abundance of sorghum grain and alfalfa, the 1960 study was designed to study ...
  • Richardson, D.; Smith, E.F.; Koch, B.A.; Ward, J.K.; Boren, Fred W. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-09-20)
    With improved harvesting machinery, farmers tend to harvest grain earlier to prevent loss by lodging or inclement weather. This often results in grain being too high in moisture for normal storage, and means that it must ...
  • Richardson, D.; Smith, E.F.; Brethour, J.R.; Koch, B.A.; Tsien, W.S.; Carmack, B.D.; Boren, Fred W. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-09-20)
    Cobalt is a trace mineral element which is essential to the health and well-being of animals. If it is deficient in the ration, it should be supplied. A cobalt bullet, which is placed in the rumen, was developed in Australia ...

    Twenty-seven head of Hereford heifers of good to choice quality were used in this trial. They previously had been used to study various winter treatments. Treatments were as follows: control lot. Cracked sorghum grain and ...
  • Drake, C.L.; Smith, E.F.; Koch, B.A.; Boren, Fred W. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-09-20)
    This study was designed to compare winter bluestem pasture with drylot as a place to winter calves. The same ration, alfalfa and prairie hay, was fed to both groups.
  • Smith, E.F.; Anderson, K.L.; Koch, B.A.; Drake, C.L.; Boren, Fred W. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-09-20)
    This experiment was designed to determine the effect of different stocking rates, of deferred grazing, and of pasture burning on cattle performance, productivity of pastures, and range condition as determined by plant ...
  • Knapp, F.W.; McKee, M. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-09-20)
    During the past year a new grubicide application method has been tested for use in controlling cattle grubs. Called the pour-on method, it consists of pouring a small amount of a special formulation of systematic grubicide ...

  • Richardson, D.; Smith, E.F.; Koch, B.A.; Boren, Fred W. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-09-20)
    In previous tests where grain intake was held at the same level, finely ground pelleted sorghum grain has produced larger and more efficient grain than rolled sorghum grain. This test was conducted to study the value of ...
  • Anthony, H.D.; Kelley, D.C.; Nelson, D.L.; Smith, E.F.; Wearden, S.; Boren, Fred W. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-09-07)
    This is the second year in which an attempt was made to determine some basic facts related to shipping fever and shipping shrink in weaned stocker calves. As in the previous years, the calves used in this study were from ...
  • McCarter, M.M.; Koch, B.A.; Smith, E.F.; Richardson, D. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-09-07)
    Previous data collected at this station seem to indicate that supplementary dietary trace minerals may be of value under certain feeding regimes. This trial also was designed to obtain further information on the value of ...
