    Feed value of aspirated oat liftings (AOL), a by-product of the oat milling industry, was evaluated by using it to replace 33, 67, or 100% of 36 lb/bu oats in a growing diet fed to heifers. Ammonia treatment of AOL was ...
  • Anandhi, Aavudai (2013-10-25)
    Changes in seasons and season length are an indicator, as well as an effect, of climate change. Seasonal change profoundly affects the balance of life in ecosystems and impacts essential human activities such as agriculture ...
  • Cochran, R.C.; Olson, K. C.; Titgemeyer, Evan C.; Jones, Timothy J. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-09-07)
    Thirteen steers were used in a 4 13 incomplete Latin square to determine chemical composition and digestibility for 13 samples of tallgrass prairie hay. Hays were collected from a variety of locations in east-central ...
  • Orr, D.E. Jr (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-04-19)
    Successful swine producers must be adaptable, utilize new technology, and know their herd production levels and costs if they want to alter those production factors that have an economic impact. A summary of the effect ...
