  • Cochran, R.C.; Corah, L.R.; Jacques, K.A.; Avery, T.B.; Zoellner, K.O.; Higginbotham, J.F. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1987)
    Various levels of lasalocid (Bovatec®) added to a protein supplement did not improve weight or condition change of beef cows grazing poor quality winter pasture. Similarly, calf birth weight and most forage utilization ...
  • McKee, M.; Conway, K.L.; Fink, G.; Schalles, R.R.; Bolsen, K.K.; Zoellner, K.O. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1976)
    Eight Hereford, 16 Angus, and 36 part Simmental bulls were tested for 140 days (October 15, 1974 to March 4, 1975) for weight gained. Bulls were divided into four groups and fed four rations that had been formulated for ...
  • McKee, M.; Conway, K.L.; Fink, G.; Schalles, R.R.; Bolsen, K.K.; Zoellner, K.O. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1975)
    Thirty-nine Angus, Hereford, and part Simmental bulls were tested 140 days (December 18, 1973 to May 6,1974) for weight gained. Bulls were divided into four groups and fed four different rations that had been formulated ...
  • Schalles, R.R.; Zoellner, K.O.; Meier, R.J. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1972)
    Crossbred cows are common but interested in using crossbred bulls is recent. Little information is available on use of crossbred bulls, so advice and recommendations have been based on genetic principles rather than research. ...
  • Blum, J.K.; Schalles, R.R.; Zoellner, K.O. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1976)
    Steers entering feedlots with higher starting weight per day of age had greater net value a t slaughter than lighter steers. Faster gaining steers brought the highest net income. Age on feed did not influence net income. ...
  • Schalles, R.R.; Zoellner, K.O.; Long, K. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1980)
    Calves that gained rapidly before going into the feedlot continued to gain rapidly on feed and were more profitable to both the cow-calf operator and the feeder. When fed to their genetic potential, large frame, heavy, young ...
  • O'Banion, D.S.; Zoellner, K.O.; Schalles, R.R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1978)
    Pre-test management was studied on 351 bulls from 54 herds that were tested at the Kansas Bull Test Station at Beloit, Kansas. Charolais, Hereford, Polled Hereford, and Simmental bulls were sick more days than Angus or ...
  • Brazle, F.K.; Kuhl, G.L.; Binns, C.E.; Zoellner, K.O.; Corah, L.R.; Schalles, R.R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1992)
    Spring-born suckling beef calves were offered salt-limited creep feeds containing either high protein, high energy, or energy plus Bovatec® from August 15 to October 15 in a 3- year study. Creep feeding improved ...
  • Binns, C.E.; Brazle, F.K.; Kuhl, G.L.; Simms, D.D.; Zoellner, K.O.; Corah, L.R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1989)
    Limit-feeding a high protein creep (36% CP) and a high energy creep (16% CP) was compared with no supplementation in a 61-day preweaning trial. Salt was used to limit daily creep intake to 1.5 to 2.0 lb per head. Calves ...
  • Schalles, R.R.; Zoellner, K.O.; Clarke, L.S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1989)
    Results of four simulated production systems indicated that high levels of milk produced calves that were heavier at weaning, primarily because of an increase in body fat. High levels of milk production, however, were a ...
  • Lynch, G.L.; Zoellner, K.O.; Broce, A.B.; Riley, Jack G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1982)
    When both cows and calves were double-tagged (one tag per ear) with ear tags impregnated with fenvalerate (Ectrin) or permethrin (Atroban), the calves gained faster (P<.01) than when neither cows nor calves were tagged. ...
  • Westmeyer, H.W.; Zoellner, K.O. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1968)
    The Kansas Beef Cattle Improvement Program is to help improve beef cow herds in Kansas and to provide information that will be valuable to producers in selecting breeding animals and making management decisions. The program ...
  • Schalles, R.R.; Zoellner, K.O.; Olson, W. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1986)
    Bulls placed in Kansas Bull Tests have increased in weight, gain, frame, and scrotal circumference, while decreasing in fat thickness over the past 15 years. Bull buyers have been willing to pay for increased performance, ...
  • Schalles, R.R.; Martin, L.C.; Zoellner, K.O. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1990)
    In a computer simulation based on KSU data, cattle bred and managed to be moved directly from weaning to feedlot and slaughtered at a young age produced the greatest profit. Cattle that were too small or too large and ...
  • Schalles, R.R.; Zoellner, K.O.; Dikeman, Michael E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1989)
    Fast-growth genotype steers placed on a high energy ration a month after weaning were compared to a slow-growth genotype on a growing ration for 155 days, followed by a finishing ration for 62 days. The fast-growth ...
  • Schalles, R.R.; Zoellner, K.O. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1975)
    Bulls on summer test gained faster than those on winter test. Breeds from Continental Europe were taller at the shoulder and gained faster than British breeds. Older bulls that were lighter at the start of the test gained ...
  • Schalles, R.R.; Kimbrough, S.; Zoellner, K.O.; Simms, D.D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1989)
    The weigh-suckle-weigh method was used to measure milk consumption by 265 calves from 159 Polled Hereford and Simmental cows over 3 years. Calves nursing Polled Hereford cows consumed an average of 11.2 lbs of milk per ...
  • McKee, M.; Schalles, R.R.; Zoellner, K.O. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1974)
    Three trials with Angus, Hereford, and Shorthorn bulls produced in the University teaching herd were conducted to determine effects of 10, 12, or 14% calculated crude protein levels in grain rations. In trial 1, the 10% ...
