  • Dalke, B.S.; Sonon, R.N. Jr.; Holthaus, D.L.; Pfaff, L.; Bolsen, K.K.; Young, Matthew A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1994)
    Agronomic and cattle performance traits were measured for the following silages produced in 1992: irrigated Pioneer 3377 corn, ensiled with or without Biotal® silage inoculant; DeKalb 42Y grain sorghum; and Cargill ...
  • Andries, K.M.; Schalles, R.R.; Franke, D.E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1994)
    Data from a rotational crossbreeding study was used to calculate among-breed heritabilities of birth weight (BWT), weaning weight (WWT), and mature cow weight at 5 years of age. The among-breed estimates were higher ...

  • Gregory, K.E.; Cundiff, L.V.; Koch, R.M.; Koohmaraie, M.; Dikeman, Michael E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1994)
    Retained heterosis for growth, carcass, and meat traits was estimated in F3 generation steer progeny in three composite populations finished on two levels of dietary energy density (2.82 MCal ME and 3.07 MCal ME, and ...

  • Simms, D.D.; Geske, J.M.; Bolze, R.P. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1994)
    A survey of 312 commercial cattle producers was conducted to determine the relative importance of selection criteria used in buying bulls. Calving ease was a major consideration of a high percentage of producers, and ...
  • Vanzant, E.S.; Cochran, R.C.; Stafford, S.; St Jean, G.; Olson, K. C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1994)
    Ruminal degradation of organic matter and protein in alfalfa and prairie hay were evaluated in vivo, using cannulated cows, and in vitro, using a continuous-culture fermenter to simulate ruminal fermentation. Estimates of ...
  • Campbell, C.G.; St. Jean, G.; Titgemeyer, Evan C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1994)
    Increasing the amino acid supply to the small intestine of growing cattle can increase performance, if specific amino acids are limiting. Although this can be accomplished by feeding rumen undegradable protein, a more ...
  • Kastner, Curtis L.; Kenney, P.B.; Campbell, R.E.; Prasai, R.K.; Mease, L.E.; Vogt, L.R.; Kropf, Donald H.; Fung, Daniel Y. C.; Garcia Zepeda, C.M. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1994)
    Lactic acid sprays effectively reduce the microbial load on both carcasses and subprimal cuts. Lactic acid decontamination of subprimals appears to carry through to retail cuts during display. Because of recontamination ...

  • Koster, H.H.; Cochran, R.C.; Vanzant, E.S.; St Jean, G.; Titgemeyer, Evan C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1994)
    Five ruminally and duodenally fistulated Angus × Hereford cows were fed dormant tallgrass-prairie forage ad libitum to monitor intake and fermentation responses associated with providing increasing amounts of supplemental ...
  • Langemeier, Michael R.; Schroeder, Ted C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1994)
    Economies of size measure the impact of increasing the size of operation on average cost of production. Economies o f size exist if average total cost decreases as size increases. Enterprise data from producers enrolled ...
  • Brazle, F.K.; Stokka, G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1994)
    One hundred and fifty-four, newly arrived, bull calves averaging 295 lb were either drenched with a copper-zinc (Cu-Zn) solution or water at arrival. The Cu-Zn drench did not affect gains during a 56-day trial. ...
  • Brazle, F.K. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1994)
    Two hundred and forty-three mixed breed steers were allotted to four treatments with two pastures per treatment. Treatments consisted of a free-choice mineral supplement alone or with Aureomycin® added to provide 150, ...
  • Brazle, F.K.; Stokka, G.L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1994)
    Two trials were conducted to evaluate the effects of Fourplex®, a trace mineral supplement, on long-hauled stocker calves. In each trial, Fourplex was added to the ration of lightweight, long-hauled calves in four ...
  • Sonon, R.N. Jr.; Dalke, B.S.; Holthaus, D.L.; Pfaff, L.; Bolsen, K.K.; Young, Matthew A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1994)
    This experiment was conducted to determine the effect of grain content on the nutritive value of corn silage. Whole-plant silage dry matter (DM) increased, whereas neutral detergent fiber (NDF) and acid detergent fiber ...
  • Cochran, R.C.; Beaty, J.L.; Vanzant, E.S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1994)
    One hundred twenty, pregnant, Angus × Hereford cows (1111 lb) grazing dormant bluestem range were used to evaluate whether the effect of altered frequency of supplementation on cow performance depended on the grain ...
  • Prasai, R.K.; Mease, L.E.; Vogt, L.R.; Kropf, Donald H.; Fung, Daniel Y. C.; Kastner, Curtis L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1994)
    Beef loins were sprayed with 1.5% lactic acid either before or after vacuum storage, both before and after vacuum storage, and before vacuum packaging followed by a water spray after storage. We stored treated loins ...
