  • Myers, S.M.; Dikeman, Michael E.; Riley, Jack G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1979)
    Analysis of traditional and later-maturing cattle types fed under accelerated (placed directly on the finishing ration) and conventional (back grounded on a growing ration before finishing) system, indicated large differences ...
  • Pruitt, J.; Schalles, R.R.; Harbers, L.H.; Owensby, Clenton E.; Smith, E.F. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1979)
    Polled Hereford cows on native Flint Hills pasture not supplemented until February lost more weight from December to February, lost less from February to May, and were in poorer condition before calving than cows supplemented ...
  • Schalles, R.R.; Fleck, A.T.; Kiracofe, G.H.; Corah, L.R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1979)
    Heifers with faster gain the first and second winter (weaning to yearling and 18 months to 2 years old) had better production and reproduction than heifers with low or moderate gains. Gains during the first winter (weaning ...
  • Fink, L.; Corah, L.; Kiracofe, G.; McKee, M. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1979)
    Forty-nine Simmental X Hereford and Hereford calves (24 bulls and 25 steers) were used to study the effect of Ralgro on growth, carcass traits, sex drive, sperm production, and development of sex organs. Approximately half ...
  • Sprott, L.R.; Corah, L.R.; Kiracofe, G.H.; McKee, M.; Schwartz, F.L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1979)
    Heifers were given either one or two Ralgro implants or one DES implants during the suckling period with no obvious effect on later reproductive performance when the heifers were bred as yearlings. However, conception rates ...
  • Bartley, E.; Herod, E.; Bechtle, R.; Sapienza, D.; Brent, B. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1979)
    A series of artificial-rumen studies tested effects of Rumensin and lasalocid on rumen fermentation. At concentrations of 22, 44, and 66 ppm both depressed microbial protein synthesis. Both severely inhibited protein ...
  • Corah, L.; Kiracofe, G.; McKee, M.; Schalles, R.R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1979)
    Two years of research with nine herds indicated one of two yearling bulls with a herd usually will sire most of the calves. In six of the nine cases, the bull we pre-evaluated as most sexually active was the sire of the ...
  • Bolsen, K.; Ilg, H.; Riley, Jack G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1979)
    W used 135 yearling steers in two trials to compare dry with high moisture (HM) corn and soybean meal (SBM) supplement with urea supplement. Results of trail 1 (88 days) show HM corn either rolled or ensiled in a stave ...
  • Ward, S.; Odde, Kenneth G.; Kiracofe, G.; McKee, M. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1979)
    Weaning calves from cows that had not cycled after calving caused a higher percentage of cows to show estrous in the next 25 days than cows suckling calves. However, 78.3% of the nonsuckling cows had short cycles (7-10 ...
  • Burson, D.E.; Hayward, L.H.; Hunt, Melvin C.; Kastner, Curtis L.; Kropf, Donald H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1979)
    We randomly assigned 112 Angus yearling steers to 14 nutritional groups fed varied ration energy levels and varied lengths of time. Blade tenderized and non-tenderized boneless rib steaks were evaluated by a taste panel ...
  • Bolsen, K.; Oltjen, J.; Ilg, H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1979)
    Milo stover silage, prairie hay or forage sorghum silage was fed in rations containing 10, 12 or 14% protein from soybean meal (SBM) or 12% protein from urea; 100 heifers were fed in the 78-day growing trial (November 11, ...
  • Harbers, L.H.; Unoh, J.E.; Sapienza, D.A.; Brent, B.E.; Peischel, H.A.; Whitney, J.D.; Smith, E.F. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1979)
    This report summarizes monthly mineral contents of burned and control native bluestem pastures determined with samples from fisulated steers. Burning decreases calcium (Ca), potassium (K), and iron (Fe), and slightly decreases ...
  • Burson, D.E.; Hunt, Melvin C.; Hayward, L.H.; Kastner, Curtis L.; Kropf, Donald H.; Allen, Dell M. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1979)
    We assigned 112 Angus yearling steers to 14 nutritional treatments including control. Submaintenance, and 12 different combinations of ration energy (low, medium or high) and feeding period (56,91, 119, 147, or 175 days). ...
  • Schalles, R.R.; Fleck, A.T.; Corah, L.R.; Kiracofe, G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1979)
    Pelvic area had little influence on the number or severity of calving problems after size and condition of two-year-old first-calf heifers, sex and weight of their calf, and genetic background of the heifer and her ...
  • Dikeman, Michael E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1979)
    Different crossbred (X) cattle types were evaluated for growth, feed efficiency, carcass and meat traits. Steers were studied from mating Angus (A), Hereford (H), Brahman (B), Sahiwal (S), Pinzgauer (P), and Tarentaise (T) ...
  • George, P.; Brent, B.E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1979)
    Tables based on mathematical models illustrate how feed intake, rate of gain, and feed efficiency change during the feeding period and in response to different wing-chill temperatures. The tables wert used to calculate ...
  • Leafgreen, M.O.; McCoy, J.H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1979)
    This analysis measured efficiencies of a centralized retail meat fabrication facility receiving all beef as boxed or as carcasses. Moving vacuum-packaged, boxed-beef subprimals through a central meat processing facility ...
  • Ames, D.R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1979)
    Adjusting feedlot rations to match the thermal environment can reduce costs of gains. Adjusting protein content of rations does not change average daily gain but it improves protein efficiency.
  • Thompson, W.; Riley, Jack G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1979)
    Ration erode protein levels of 9%, 11%, 15%, 12 declining to 10.5% and 13% declining to 11% and finally to 9% were fed with and without Monensin. Steers fed 9% protein continuously gained the least and were the least ...
  • Nagaraja, T. G.; Bartley, E.; Fina, L.; Anthony, H.; Leipold, H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1979)
    We have found that rumen bacteria contain endotoxins that are released into rumen fluid. Also rumen fluid from grain-fed cattle contains considerably more free endotoxin than rumen fluid from hay-fed cattle. Injecting ...
