  • Mackintosh, D.L.; Henrickson, R.W.; Watt, D.B. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2012-01-25)
    How much meat should I have in my locker from a 1000 pound steer? This is the type of question that is asked most frequently by locker patrons. Many people, now using frozen food lockers have little conception of how ...
  • Pickett, A.G.; Smith, E.F. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2012-01-25)
    Five lots of good steer calves were used in this test which was started in the fall of 1946. Three lots were continued through two winters and two full grazing seasons. The other two lots were full fed as yearlings at ...
  • Aubel, C.E. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2012-01-25)
    To produce swine profitably, it is necessary to make use of forage crops. This practice not only saves grain, but contributes to the general health of the hogs. Since swine feeders are seeking new and cheaper methods ...
  • Cox, R.F.; Hughes, J.S. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2012-01-25)
    It has been demonstrated that the rate of gains and the efficiency of feed utilization by fattening lambs are associated closely with the physical nature of the ration. The manner in which physical balance affects feed ...
  • Cox, R.F.; Mackintosh, D.L.; Smith, E.F.; Hughes, J.S. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2012-01-25)
    Many tests have been completed at this station bearing on some phase of physical balance in sheep rations. Differences in gains consistently have favored a medium proportion of concentrates to roughage over either more ...
  • Pickett, A.G.; Smith, E.F. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2012-01-25)
    Considerable interest has developed in the possibilities of self feeding a protein supplement to cattle on grass. Self feeding is a labor saving and eliminates the need for rounding up cattle every day. Under usual ...
  • Hendrickson, R.L. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2012-01-25)
    The preservation of food by freezing depends upon retarding the rate of microbial, enzymatic, and chemical changes. It is generally agreed that meat and meat products should be sharp-frozen at -10°F. (-23.3°C), and ...
  • Bell, F.W.; Mackintosh, D.L.; Pickett, A.G. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2012-01-25)
    This is a study of the characteristics of feeder calves which are associated with differences in: 1. Rate of gain. 2. Kind and amount of feeds required to make gain. 3. Value of the carcass. The two lots of calves ...
  • Aubel, C.E. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2012-01-30)
    Last year at the Livestock Feeders' Day, results of experiments were given on the use of mustard seed oil meal as a protein supplement for fattening pigs on alfalfa pasture. The results showed that mustard seed oil meal ...
  • Pickett, A.G.; Smith, E.F. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2012-01-25)
    Previous tests have shown that two or two and one-half pounds of grain daily will winter heifer calves well, which are to be full fed for an early market either after wintering or following wintering and grazing without ...
  • Pickett, A.G.; Smith, E.F. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2012-01-25)
    This current test includes four lots of 10 steers each. The objective is to determine the value of dry bluestem grass as a winter feed for yearling steers. All pastures used for winter grazing had been used the previous ...
