  • Keay, L.E.; Kiracofe, G.; Simon, M.; Riley, Jack G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1983)
    The effectiveness of alfaprostol in inducing abortion was tested in 93 pregnant heifers. Alfaprostol was injected intramuscularly, .7 mg per 100 pounds body weight. Twenty-four heifers were injected when they averaged 83 ...
  • Laudert, S.; Boyd, G.; Kuhl, G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1986)
    Alfavet® (alfaprostol), an experimental prostaglandin analog for inducing abortion in feedlot heifers, was evaluated for efficacy. Abortion was induced within 8 days following injection of 5 mg alfaprostol in 45 of 51 ...
  • Veloso, L.; Loe, E.; Unruh, John A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2006)
    Sixteen crossbred steers were used to compare performance and carcass characteristics of animals from accelerated and “natural” cattle production systems. Steers in the accelerated group (8 head) were implanted with Component ...
  • Miller, K.; Van Bibber, C.L.; Drouillard, James S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2012)
    Cattle entering feedlots typically are adapted to finishing diets over a period of 2 to 4 weeks by gradually replacing forages with concentrate feeds using a series of step-up diets. Without proper adaptation, naïve ...
  • Harmon, D.L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1985)
    The effects of adding decoquinate (Deccox®) to the diet at 0, 0.5, or 5 mg per kg body weight were evaluated with diets of 30 and 80% concentrate. Decoquinate did not influence rumen or plasma metabolites, diet digestibility, ...
  • Lamb, G.C.; Smith, J.M.; Stevenson, Jeffrey S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1995)
    Five treatments were initiated approximately 15 days after calving: 1) calf was weaned from its dam (CW); 2) calf was present continually with its own dam (CP-O); 3) calf was present continually with its own dam ...
  • Riley, Jack G.; Bolsen, K.K.; Good, D.L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1973)
    Two trials using 200 mixed breed steers were conducted to determine effects of 0,3, 6, or 12-ounce drenches of Adapted Rumen Microorganisms (ARM) on subsequent feedlot performance. An 85 percent concentrate ration was ...
  • Brethour, J.R.; Lee, B.; Riley, Jack G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1986)
    Adding .6 pound fat or .22 pound sodium bicarbonate (soda) to finishing rations containing rolled wheat significantly improved performance and appeared to increase the substitution value of wheat. Both fat and soda increased ...
  • Johnson, Sandra K.; Harmoney, Keith R.; Stevenson, Jeffrey S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2004)
    A study was conducted in 735 suckled beef cows to determine if synchronization of ovulation could be improved with estradiol cypionate (ECP) and(or) 48-hour calf removal in a modified MGA + CO-Synch protocol. All cows ...
  • Montgomery, Sean P.; Sindt, J.J.; Farran, T.B.; Pike, N.J.; Coetzer, C.M.; LaBrune, H.J.; Trater, A.M.; Hunter, R.D.; Stock, R.A.; Drouillard, James S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2001)
    Three hundred thirty-nine crossbred beef heifers were used in a 74-day finishing study to evaluate effects of adding 0.5% urea to finishing diets containing steam-flaked corn and 34% (dry basis) Sweet Bran® wet ...
  • Bolsen, K.K.; Laytimi, A.; Hart, R.A.; Niroomand, F.; Hoover, J. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1989)
    Whole-plant corn silages were treated with Ecosyl® or Foraform® in one trial and Biomate® or Biomate + Cold-flo® in the second trial. In both trials, the silages were well preserved, but all were highly unstable in air ...
  • Bolsen, K.; Smith, R.; Ilg, H.; Axe, D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1986)
    The response of corn silage to the additive, Silo-Best Soluble®, was not consistent for the farm silo criteria measured. Ensiling temperatures and chemical compositions were similar for control and treated silages, except ...
  • Soderlund, S.; Bolsen, K.; Ilg, H.; Hoover, J. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1983)
    Steers fed Silo Guard II® treated corn silage gained 3.5% faster and were 8.3% more efficient than those fed the control silage. Cornlage (54% dry matter corn silage in an oxygen-limiting structure) produced numerically ...
  • Bolsen, K.; Ilg, H.; Kirch, B.; Laytimi, A.; Lomas, Lyle W. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1987)
    Whole-plant corn silages were treated with USO3M or Silo-Best Soluble® in one trial and with Garst M-74® in a second trial. In Trial 1 all three silages were well preserved and moderately stable in the air. USO3M silage ...
  • Ames, D.R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1976)
    Two winter trials have indicated that protein can be removed from growing rations during cold weather without lowering average daily gain. Cattle consumed 0.29 and 0.33 lb/hd/da (0.11 and 0.15 kg/hd/da) less protein supplement ...
  • Vanmiddlesworth, J.; Schalles, R.R.; Milliken, George A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1975)
    We developed a procedure to compare yearling weight ratios of a calf crop when the calves have been on different management or feeding regimes This procedure will also produce more meaningful sire and dam summaries.
  • Wallace, L.D.; Breiner, C.A.; Spell, A.R.; Carter, J.A.; Lamb, G.C.; Stevenson, Jeffrey S.; Breiner, Ryan M. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2011)
    Embryo transfer (ET) has become more widespread in recent years as a way to improve cattle genetics. According to the annual statistical survey of the American Embryo Transfer Association, more than 200,000 fresh and ...
  • Johnson, Sandra K.; Jaeger, John R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2014)
    Transportation of sperm is a critical component of reproductive success. Another factor in reproductive success are the contractions of the uterine myometrium, which influence the number of sperm that reach the oviduct. ...
