  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • Lechtenberg, K.F.; Leipold, H.W.; Nagaraja, T. G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1986)
    Fusobacterium necrophorum was the predominant bacterial isolate from 49 liver abscesses. Biotype A tended to occur in pure infections and produced a more severe tissue reaction than biotype B, which tended to occur as a ...
  • Schalles, R.R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1986)
    For cattle producers to stay in business, they must apply the business management techniques used by sophisticated non-agricultural enterprises. Among these techniques is systems analysis, in which formulas representin ...
  • Brazle, F.; Kuhl, G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1986)
    The performance of grazing heifers offered a free-choice mineral or two mineral-grain-ionophore mixtures was evaluated in 3-year study. Heifers ate more of the supplement containing Bovatec® than that containing Rumensin® ...
  • Goldy, G.; Walters, T.; Lenssen, Andrew William; Riley, Jack G.; Posler, Gerry L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1986)
    For the 188 grain sorghum varieties studied, in vitro digestibilites were statistically similar, but there was a significant difference between the 12 production locations. Crude protein, calcium, and phosphorus levels ...
  • Simms, D.D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1986)
    In a study in which 525 Simmental-cross steer calves were assigned to five implant treatments in four trials, 72 mg Ralgro® implants failed to increase performance significantly over' conventional 36 mg implants.
  • Riley, Jack G.; Pope, Ronald V. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1986)
    Brahman crossbred and Simmental crossbred calves gained similarly during a 312-day, native range grazing study. Longhorn crossbreds gained less than the Brahman or Simmental crosses but more than the British crossbreds, ...
  • Goldy, G.; Riley, Jack G.; Pope, Ronald V. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1986)
    There were no significant differences in performance or carcass traits for finishing cattle implanted with either Synovex-S® or STEER-oid®. The 122-day trial used 180 steers, with each treatment having 15 replicates.
  • Schalles, R.R.; Bourdon, R.M. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1986)
    A simulation program was used to evaluate nine genotypes of cattle based on, cow size and milk production. Return per cow unit using current economics is given. The larger, heavy milking cows were more than twice as ...
  • Goldy, G.; Riley, Jack G.; Pope, Ronald V. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1986)
    Feed efficiency for finishing steers was significantly improved (7.4%) when rumen-protected methionine and lysine were added to a finishing ration.
  • Brazle, F. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1986)
    Decoquinate (Deccox®), when added to the diet of newly-arrived calves, reduced (P<.05) the number of treatments required per animal in three experiments involving 551 cattle. Feed conversion was improved in two of the three ...
  • Ferguson, M.; Corah, L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1986)
    Injecting 100 mcg of GnRH into cycling heifers at artificial insemination following estrus synchronization with either prostaglandin or Syncro-Mate-B® did not improve first service conception rate. However, GnRH improved ...
  • Bolsen, K.; Smith, R.; Ilg, H.; Fung, Daniel Y. C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1986)
    Results from three laboratory silo experiments showed that four commercial silage inoculants increased fermentation rate, particularly during the first 4 days of the ensiling process. The effects of the additives on pH ...
  • Smith, R.; Bolsen, K.; Walter, T.; Kirch, B. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1986)
    Results from two trials indicate that grain sorghums can produce high, whole-crop dry matter yields in a short time. Although grain sorghum whole-crop silage may yield less tonnage than forage sorghum, its higher crude ...
  • Dickerson, J.; Bolsen, K.; Hamma, S.; Hoover, J. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1986)
    Results from three trials showed the diversity among forage sorghum hybrids for both agronomic and nutritive characteristics. Later maturing and nonheading hybrids produced silages with low dry matter (DM) contents, low ...
  • Laytimi, A.; Grimes, C.; Bolsen, K. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1986)
    Third cutting alfalfa was baled in large rectangular bales (1,400 to 1,800 lb) and in small conventional bales (70 to 90 lb) at three moisture levels: low 00%), medium (16%), and high (22%). During 120 days of storage ...
  • Laytimi, A.; Arledge, J.; Grimes, C.; Bolsen, K. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1986)
    In the first of two alfalfa hay experiments, lambs fed small bale hays averaged 16% better gains and feed conversions than those fed large bale hays; Fresh Cut®-treated hay gave 9% better performance than untreated hays; ...
  • Brazle, F.; Kuhl, G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1986)
    Continuous, early-intensive (double-stocked) grazing vs. early-intensive grazing using a two-pasture, 16 to 18-day rotation were compared in three experiments. No significant differences were found (P>.15) in daily gains ...
