  • Bolsen, K.; Oltjen, J.; Riley, Jack G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1977)
    Eleven wheat, barley, oat and corn silages were evaluated in two steers growing trials in 1975 and 1976. In both trials, steers fed barley or corn silages had similar rate and efficiency of gains. Also, barley and corn ...
  • Fleck, A.A.; Schalles, R.R.; Riley, Jack G.; Fink, G.; O' Banion, D.S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1977)
    Adding a medicated top dressing to a weaning calf ration did not reduce calf sickness, but increased weight gains the second and third weeks of a three-week weaning trial.
  • Ames, D.R.; Willms, C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1977)
    Four lots of growing-finishing cattle were sprinkled when dry bulb temperature exceeded 80 F the summer of 1976 and compared with lots not sprinkled. Sprinkled lots gained significantly (P<.01) more (1.20 kg per day compared ...
  • Laaser, G.N.; Kiracofe, G.H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1977)
    Eight cull Hereford cows were given 200-mg. injections of testosterone proprionate repository (Haver-Lockhart, Shawnee, KS) every other day for 20 days (10 injections). Four cows were given weekly booster injections with ...
  • Heekin, M.D.; Kiracofe, G.H.; Schalles, R.R.; Ward, H.S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1977)
    We used 76 cows to determine the effect of inseminating at different times after detecting estrus and to evaluate Synchronization B as an estrus synchronizing agent. Cows were divided into five groups: (1) nonsynchronized ...
  • McKee, M.; Kimple, K.; Conway, K. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1977)
    We used 63 pregnant Hereford cows in mid gestation to evaluate need and source of supplemental protein on milo stubble. Cows fed free choice a 16% experimental nonprotein-nitrogen-based liquid supplement lost significantly more ...
  • Bolsen, K.; Riley, Jack G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1977)
    Steers fed corn silage gained significantly (P<.05) faster than steers fed any other roughage. Wheat silage ranked second with gains significantly (P<.05) more than gains from milo stover silage, alfalfa hay or corn ...
  • Smith, G.M.; Dikeman, Michael E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1977)
    This article was abstracted from a manuscript by Gerald H. Smith, U.S. Meat Animal Research Center, Clay Center, Nebraska which appeared in the December, 1976, issue of the Journal of Animal Science. The carcass and meats ...
  • Schalles, R.R.; Blum, J.K.; Smith, W.H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1977)
    Selecting animals for decreased feed per unit of gain has made small changes in feed conversion over a four-year period. Adjusting for maintenance requirements by using mid weight to 0.75 power was not entirely satisfactory ...
  • Corah, L.; Schwartz, F.; Brazle, F.; Orwig, T.; Francis, G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1977)
    To encourage greater use of implants in beef cattle industry in Kansas, 62 implant demonstrations were conducted in 31 different counties in Kansas. 1,402 implanted suckling calves gained an average of 15.1 pounds more ...
  • Smith, E.F.; Harbers, L.H.; Owensby, Clenton E.; Boggs, Don (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1977)
    Six pastures totaling 328 acres were summer grazed by yearling steers. Four pastures were burned April 23, 1976; two were not burned. One of the burned pastures had 40 lbs. of nitrogen per acre applied aerially April ...
  • Ames, D.R.; Willms, C.L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1977)
    A summer feedlot trial indicates that protein can be removed from finishing rations in proportion to magnitude of heat stress without causing a decline in average daily lain. Cattle consumed .13 kg/hd/day (.30 lb) less ...
  • Loveday, H.D.; Allen, Dell M.; Dikeman, Michael E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1977)
    Different cattle types were evaluated for growth, feed efficiency, and carcass and meat traits. Hereford (H), Angus (A), Red Poll (RP), Brown Swiss (BS), Gelbvieh (G), Maine Anjou (MA) and Chianina sires were mated ...
  • Koons, L.; Riley, Jack G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1977)
    Twenty-four Kansas feedyards with 432,000 head capacity participated in a survey on operation procedures. The survey covered five areas: processing, animal health, rations, facilities, and marketing. Methods differed most ...
  • Harbers, L.H.; Brazle, F.K.; Owensby, Clenton E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1977)
    The scanning electron microscope has been used to observe the digestion of alfalfa hay and warm- and cool-season grasses. Photomicrographs show that leaves of all species are digested by bacteria and protozoa attacking ...
  • Bolsen, K.; Riley, Jack G.; Grimes, C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1977)
    Ninety heifer calves were used to compare six rations containing various combinations of milo stover, forage sorghum and alfalfa silages. In the 96-day trial, heifers fed 100% forage sorghum silage outperformed heifers ...
  • Bolsen, K.; Oltjen, J.; Riley, Jack G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1977)
    Twenty-four individually fed heifers were used 1n two heifer trials to evaluate four combinations of micronized or dry-rolled milo and soybean meal or urea supplements 1n prairie hay growing rations. Feeding 4 to 5 lbs. ...
  • Bolsen, K.; Chyba, Leslie J.; Ibbetson, W. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1977)
    In growing rations containing fescue hay, micronized corn + urea-liquid gave: (1) 20.5% faster gains and 11.5% more efficient gains than cracked corn + urea-liquid and (2) similar rate and efficiency of gains as cracked ...
  • Kimple, K.; McKee, M.; Fink, G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1977)
