  • Chestnut, A.; Brent, B.E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-03-04)
    We are developing mathematical models to show how feed intake, rate of gain, and feed efficiency change during the finishing period. When finished, the models might be used to predict when to sell cattle to maximize profit ...
  • Harrison, K.F.; Good, D.L.; Riley, Jack G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-03-04)
    A 189-day trial used 280 mixed-breed steers to study effects of various protein levels in finishing steer rations. Rations containing 15.4 or 13.4% crude protein significantly improved rate of gain during the first 42 ...
  • Laudert, S.B.; Davis, G.V. Jr. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-12-14)
    Finishing yearling steers reimplanted with Synovex-S or Ralgro gained 6.8 and 4.2% faster, respectively, than those implanted with Compudose. However, feed efficiency was not significantly different among treatments. ...
  • Simm, D.; Kuhl, Gerry L.; Schalles, R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-12-14)
    Four field trials were conducted to compare Ralgro, Synovex-S and Compudose implants for growing steer calves. All implant programs significantly increased (P<.01) average daily gain. Reimplanting with Ralgro or Synovex-S ...
  • George, P.; Brent, B.E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-02-18)
    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 ...
  • Bolsen, K.; Axe, D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-12-14)
    High-moisture forage sorghum silage was fed to 108 steer calves to measure the effect of sodium bicarbonate and feed flavor (Omniflavor®) on calf performance. Overall performance was similar for all three rations by the ...
