  • Bailey, E.A.; Preedy, G.W.; Pacheco, L.A.; Jaeger, John R.; Waggoner, Justin W.; Olson, K. C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2013)
    Ranch-of-origin preconditioning can improve the welfare and performance of beef calves by decreasing the stress associated with weaning, transport, diet change, and commingling with other calves. Preconditioning methods ...
  • 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 ...
  • Bailey, E.A.; Titgemeyer, Evan C.; Cochran, R.C.; Jones, Timothy J.; Olson, K. C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2012)
    Pre- and postpartum deficiencies of metabolizable protein have been identified as potentially limiting to productivity of beef cows and calves. Pre-partum supplementation of forage-based diets with ruminally undegraded ...
  • Singh, A.R.; Schalles, R.R.; Smith, W.H.; Kessler, F.B. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1969)
    The ability of beef cows to produce heavy, vigorous and good quality calves every year is one of their most important economic traits. Feeding practices have been reported to influence average daily gain (ADG) and ...
  • Schalles, R.R.; McKee, M.; Evans, J.; Davis, Duane L.; Pitts, C.W. Jr. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1973)
    Controlling flies significantly decreased incidence of pinkeye in cattle on native Flint Hill range. There was no difference in the average weaning weight of groups sprayed or not sprayed. However individuals severely ...
  • Bradford, Heather L.; Moser, Daniel W.; Bormann, Jennifer M.; Weaber, Robert L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2014)
    Udder quality is an important factor related to cow longevity and calf performance. Cows with tighter udder suspension and smaller teats tend to have greater longevity. When cows stay in the herd longer, fewer replacement ...
