  • Smith, E.F.; Koch, B.A.; Cox, R.F.; Walker, G.L. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-10-31)
    Dry bluestem pasture has been used successfully several years at this station as a source of winter roughage for steer calves that are to be grazed during the summer and sold off grass as feeder or stocker yearlings. ...
  • Aubel, C.E. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-11-07)
    This experiment was conducted the summer of 1955 with spring pigs to obtain information on maximum use of alfalfa meal in protein supplemental mixtures for pigs in the dry lot. Four lots of pigs were self-fed shelled ...
  • Aubel, C.E. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-11-07)
    A new chemical made from beef tallow, RQ-20, recently has come on the market and has been claimed to be beneficial for young pigs being fed for market. Its benefit arises from its anti-scouring action and it is said to ...
  • Richardson, D.; Mackintosh, D.L.; Wheat, J.D.; Menzies, C.S.; Cox, R.F. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-10-31)
    The addition of stilbestrol to a high-energy fattening ration has consistently demonstrated its ability to increase rate of gain with older or heavier feeder cattle. At the time this test was initiated, there was ...
  • Richardson, D.; Smith, E.F.; Cox, R.F. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-10-31)
    Twenty-seven Hereford steer calves were divided as equally as possible into three lots of 9 animals each. One lot received stilbestrol at the rate of 6 milligrams per head daily for the first 56 days. The rate was ...
  • Richardson, D.; Smith, E.F.; Cox, R.F.; Baker, F.H. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-10-31)
    Stilbestrol, a synthetic compound which has a hormonelike effect when taken into the body, has been recognized as a growth-stimulating factor in beef cattle fattening rations. Most of the market cattle in Kansas are ...
  • Smith, E.F.; Koch, B.A.; Good, D.L.; Severns, V.D. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-10-31)
    Circular 320 from this station contains a three-year summary comparing heifers wintered in dry lot with heifers wintered on dry grass and the effect of this winter treatment on their total performance in a wintering, ...
  • Richardson, D.; Smith, E.F.; Cox, R.F. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-10-31)
    Thirty Hereford heifer calves averaging about 400 pounds each were divided as ,equally as possible into three lots of 10 animals each. All lots received all the sorghum silage they would clean up each day. A mineral ...
  • Richardson, D.; Baker, F.H.; Harris, J.O.; Smith, E.F.; Cox, R.F.; Bowman, O.M. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-10-31)
    The rumen, or paunch, of cattle and sheep normally contains innumerable microorganisms. It has long been recognized that these microscopic organisms help break down complex carbohydrates such as fiber and help synthesize ...
  • Smith, E.F.; Baker, F.H.; Walker, G.L. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-10-31)
    The nutritive value of bluestem pasture usually declines rapidly after mid-summer. This test is an attempt to find ways to economically increase the rate of gain after mid-summer with small quantities of concentrate feed.
  • Smith, E.F.; Baker, F.H.; Cox, R.F.; Walker, G.L. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-10-31)
    The nutritive value of bluestem pasture usually declines after midsummer. This study is concerned with the effect of supplementing the grass after mid-summer with protein to determine if it will profitably increase steer ...
  • Wheat, J.D.; Menzies, C.S.; Holland, L.A. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-10-31)
    This study was to determine the response of young guinea pigs to stilbestrol added to the basic ration of ground oats, tankage, bonemeal, ground alfalfa hay, and freshly-cut, green alfalfa. Eight litters of guinea pigs, ...
  • Richardson, D.; Smith, E.F.; Menzies, C.S.; Cox, R.F. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-10-31)
    In a previous test, it was found that phosphoric acid could be used as a source of phosphorus for beef heifers on dry bluestem pasture. A phosphorus balance study with lambs also indicated efficient utilization of ...
  • Parrish, D.B.; Aubel, C.E. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-11-07)
    Question has been raised concerning the vitamin A potency of stored yellow corn. Samples of 1954 corn and 1948-49 stored corn were analyzed for provitamin A content by a separation and chemical determination of the ...
  • Bell, T.D.; Richardson, D.; Cox, R.F.; Needham, J.W. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-10-31)
    Lamb-fattening rations varying in proportions of roughages to concentrate have been studied in this project several years. In recent years much interest has been shown by commercial lamb feeders in completely pelleted ...
  • Richardson, D.; Smith, E.F.; Cox, R.F. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-10-31)
    Four tests, one with steer calves and three with heifers, were conducted to study the ratio of roughage to concentrate in beef cattle fattening rations. Beef cattle are naturally large consumers of roughage and serve ...
  • Aubel, C.E. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-11-07)
    A second experiment was conducted with fall pigs in the dry lot. Two lots of pigs were used. One lot received the RQ-20 in the protein mixture at the rate of 3 pounds to 600 pounds of supplement. The mixture was self-fed ...

  • Koch, B.A.; Smith, E.F.; Richardson, D.; Cox, R.F.; Ordoveza, A. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-10-31)
    There has long been evidence that forages produced on different types of soil in the same general area give significantly different results when fed to animals. Further information is needed on the composition and ...
  • Aubel, C.E. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-11-07)
    Since pastures for swine are often poor, inadequate, or unavailable in Kansas, there is a growing appreciation of the value of alfalfa hay or meal in the rations of all swine brood sows (and pigs being fed for market). ...
