  • Richardson, D.; Smith, E.F.; Cox, R.F. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1956)
    Kansas is surpassed only by Texas in total sorghum acreage and production. A large part of this acreage consists of the type that has a short stalk and is, therefore, suitable for harvesting the grain with a combine. ...
  • Richardson, D.; Smith, E.F.; Cox, R.F. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1956)
    The way that animals are fed and managed before going into the feed lot may influence the rate and efficiency of gain on a fattening ration. This is particularly true with pigs. This experiment was planned to obtain ...
  • Smith, E.F.; Richardson, D.; Koch, B.A.; Cox, R.F.; Stitt, W.E. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1956)
    Spaying is the act of removing the ovaries, which are the primary source of the estrogenic hormones. Stilbestrol is a. synthetic compound resembling these estrogenic hormones in its physiological action. Experimental evidence ...
  • Koch, B.A.; Smith, E.F.; Richardson, D.; Cox, R.F.; Ordoveza, A. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1956)
    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 ...
  • Richardson, D.; Smith, E.F.; Cox, R.F. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1956)
    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 ...
  • Bell, T.D.; Richardson, D.; Cox, R.F.; Needham, J.W. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1956)
    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.; Menzies, C.S.; Cox, R.F. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1956)
    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 ...
  • Richardson, D.; Baker, F.H.; Harris, J.O.; Smith, E.F.; Cox, R.F.; Bowman, O.M. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1956)
    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 ...
  • Richardson, D.; Smith, E.F.; Cox, R.F. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1956)
    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.; Smith, E.F.; Cox, R.F.; Baker, F.H. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1956)
    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 ...
  • Richardson, D.; Smith, E.F.; Cox, R.F. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1956)
    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.; Mackintosh, D.L.; Wheat, J.D.; Menzies, C.S.; Cox, R.F. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1956)
    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 ...
