  • 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.
  • Harbers, L.H.; Teague, R.D.; Riley, Jack G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1975)
    When calcium chloride was added to a mixture of minerals and urea in molasses, the minerals had not settled after the mixture was shipped 350 miles and stored 4 weeks. Calcium carbonate added to a similar supplement caused ...
  • Berger, L.L.; Schalles, R.R.; Harbers, L.H.; Smith, E.F.; Owensby, Clenton E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1975)
    Burning and fertilizing treatments on six Bluestem pastures were evaluated by comparing performance of spring-calving cows and calves that grazed them. Two control pastures were not burned or fertilized, two pastures were ...
  • Schalles, R.R.; Kiracofe, G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1975)
    The reproductive performance of a herd of Polled Hereford cows was evaluated over an eight year period. Culling cows the first time they were open would not have improved the future calving rates in this herd. The cost of ...
  • Warren, J.H.; Smith, E.F.; Schalles, R.R.; Berger, L.; Fink, G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1975)
    We found no advantage for creep feeding calves for either all summer or 37 days prior to weaning. All calves were with their dams on native pasture. Calves not creep fed or creep fed only 37 days before weaning were sick ...
  • Fink, G.; Riley, Jack G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1975)
    Three trails used 264 steers to evaluate the effects of 36 mg zeranol (Ralgro) and 20 mg estradiol benzoate plus 200 mg progresterone (Synovex-S) implants on performance of steers during one growing and two finishing ...
  • Harrison, K.F.; Fink, G.; Riley, Jack G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1975)
    one growing trial and two finishing trials we used 264 steers. Rations containing 13.2% crude protein during the 105-day growing trial significantly (P<.05) improved rate of gain gain compared with 11.3% crude protein ...
  • McKee, M.; Conway, K.L.; Fink, G.; Schalles, R.R.; Bolsen, K.K.; Zoellner, K.O. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1975)
    Thirty-nine Angus, Hereford, and part Simmental bulls were tested 140 days (December 18, 1973 to May 6,1974) for weight gained. Bulls were divided into four groups and fed four different rations that had been formulated ...
  • Morrison, D.G.; Kiracofe, G.H.; Heersche, G. Jr.; Schalles, R.R.; McKee, M. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1975)
    Calving was induced in 44 Polled Hereford cows at 275 days’ gestation. Twenty mgs. Of dexamethasone (Azium) given intramuscularly caused parturition an average of 43.1 hours after injection (range 21 to 57). An injection ...
  • Morrison, D.G.; Kiracofe, G.H.; Heersche, G. Jr.; Schalles, R.R.; McKee, M. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1975)
    Eighty-three cows were each treated with a nine-day Syncro-mate B ear implant and one estrogen and progesterone injection. After implant removal, cows were artificially inseminated either 48, 54 or 60 hours later or 12 ...
  • Bolsen, K.K.; Fink, G.; Riley, Jack G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1975)
    Four finishing rations evaluated in the l02-day trial were: (1) unprocessed (Whole) milage, (2) processed (rolled) silage, (3) processed milage plus high moisture milo and (4) high-moisture milo plus chopped hay. ...
  • Bolsen, K.K.; Boyett, G.; Riley, Jack G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1975)
    Seventy-two heifer calves were used in a 98-day trial to evaluate four rations: (1) forage sorghum silage plus soybean meal, (2) milo stover pellets plus soybean meal, (3) milo stover silage plus soybean meal and (4) ...
  • Riley, Jack G.; Fink, G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1975)
    Chianina-X steers gained consistently during a 151-day finishing test and produced high yielding carcasses with 0.06 in. fat and 1.71 square of loin per hundred pounds of carcass. Average USDA quality grade was between ...
  • May, M.L.; Lipsey, R.J.; Loveday, H.D.; Allen, Dell M.; Dikeman, Michael E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1975)
    Different cattle types were evaluated for growth, feed efficiency, and carcass and meat traits. Hereford, Angus, Jersey, South Devon, Limousin, Simmental, and Charolais sires were bred artificially to Angus and Hereford ...
  • Lipsey, R.J.; Dikeman, Michael E.; Riley, Jack G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1975)
    Sixteen Maine Anjou and 16 Gelbvieh steer calves from Angus or Hereford crossbred dams, and 16 Hereford x Angus crossbred steers were fed the same ration in individual pens until they reached a weekly energy efficiency ...
  • Schalles, R.R.; Zoellner, K.O. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1975)
    Bulls on summer test gained faster than those on winter test. Breeds from Continental Europe were taller at the shoulder and gained faster than British breeds. Older bulls that were lighter at the start of the test gained ...
  • Sapienza, D.A.; Brent, B.E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1975)
    In ruminants fed high grain rations, a condition called polioencephalomalacia (PEM), characterized by central nervous system derangement, can develop. It usually is noninfectious, responds to thiamin injections, and is ...
  • Berger, L.L.; Harbers, L.H.; Schalles, R.R.; Smith, E.F.; Owensby, Clenton E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1975)
    Nine pastures totaling 492 acres were summer grazed by yearling Hereford steers. Five pastures were burned April 24, 1974; four were not burned. Burned and nonburned pastures had 0, 40, or 80 lbs. of nitrogen per ...
  • Kropf, Donald H.; Allen, Dell M.; Thouvenelle, G.J. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1975)
    Thirty carcasses, ten each from three groups-short-fed concentrate rations for about 70 days, grass-fed on Flint Hill pasture without supplemental feeding until slaughter in mid-to-late October, and long-fed concentrate ...
  • Bolsen, K.K.; Fink, G.; Riley, Jack G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1975)
