  • Johnson, Sandra K.; Ward, M.A.; Swanson, O.L.; Perry, G.A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2013-03-19)
    Protocols used for fixed-timed artificial insemination strive to synchronize growth of follicular waves and commonly do so by administration of gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) at the beginning of the treatment. The ...
  • Anandhi, Aavudai; Frei, Allan; Pierson, Donald C.; Schneiderman, Elliot M.; Zion, Mark S.; Lounsbury, David; Matonse, Adao H. (2013-10-25)
    A variety of methods are available to estimate values of meteorological variables at future times and at spatial scales that are appropriate for local climate change impact assessment. One commonly used method is Change ...
  • Schroeder, Ted C.; Mintert, J. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-03-10)
    This study analyzes recent changes observed in pork, farm-to-wholesale and wholesale-to-retail, marketing margins. Although the inflation-adjusted, farm-to-wholesale margin has declined over the last 25 years, ...
  • Tokach, Michael D.; Goodband, Robert D.; Nelssen, Jim L.; Dritz, Steven S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-02-19)
    The influence of stocking density (7.4 or 6.6 sq ft per pig) and marketing strategy (0, 1, or 2 sorts before closeout) was examined in a commercial production environment. No interaction between stocking density and ...
  • Harris, Keith D.; James, H. S. Jr (2014-08-08)
    The research examining bioscience networks has been studied from two perspectives. One view comes from economics and the other sociology. We examine the technical (material flows) and people aspects (information sharing) ...
  • Babcock, A.; Jones, R.; Langemeier, Michael R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-08-02)
    This study had three primary objectives: 1) to examine the effects that individual performance and ingredient price factors have on cost of gain; 2) to quantify the annual and/or seasonal trend in cost of gain in Kansas ...
  • Babcock, A.; Jones, R.; Langemeier, Michael R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-08-02)
    This study had three primary objectives: 1) to determine if there is an annual and/or seasonal trend in percentage of death loss in Kansas feedlots; 2) to examine the difference in death loss between steers and heifers; ...
  • Hofstad, A. N.; Nussbaumer, T.; Akhunov, Eduard; Shin, S.; Kugler, K. G.; Kistler, H. C.; Mayer, K. F. X.; Muehlbauer, G. J.
    Fusarium head blight (FHB) is a disease caused predominantly by the fungal pathogen Fusarium graminearum that affects wheat and other small-grain cereals and can lead to severe yield loss and reduction in grain quality. ...
  • McKee, M.; Conway, K.L.; Fink, G.; Kimple, K.; Hoover, J.D.; Riley, Jack G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-03-04)
    Preliminary trials the summer of 1975 tested the value of excreta silage for maintain pregnant cows and heifers. Ingredients in the excreta silage were wheat straw, cattle excreta, corn, and molasses. Eighty mature cows ...
  • Greig, J.K.; Spillman, C.K.; Koch, B.A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-05-07)
    Exhaust air from the Kansas State University swine farrowing house provides most of the heat needed in a greenhouse adjacent to it. The air apparently is not toxic to any of the vegetable plants tested. Tomato plants in ...
  • Park, J.S.; Hines, Robert H.; Kennedy, G.A.; DeRouchey, Joel M.; Lee, D.J.; Maloney, C.A.; Cao, H,; Hancock, Joe D.; Behnke, Keith C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-02-25)
    Overall ADG and ADFI were not affected, but feed efficiency was improved with pelleting and further improvements resulted from expander processing. In a second experiment, enzyme supplementation to mash, but not pelleted, ...
  • Traylor, S.L.; Hines, Robert H.; Lee, D.J.; Johnston, S.L.; Sorrell, P.; Hancock, Joe D.; Behnke, Keith C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-02-25)
    Expander processing of corn-, sorghum-, wheat-, and wheat midds-based diets improved nutrient digestibility in growing pigs and, thus, the apparent digestible energy concentration in the diets. This new feed manufacturing ...
  • Shirley, John E.; Piehl, D.; Titgemeyer, Evan C.; Scheffel, Michael V. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2011-05-12)
    The loss of meat and bone meal as a source of high quality protein for lactating cows creates an increased need for nonanimal sources. Fifty six Holstein cows were used to evaluate expeller soybean meal as a source of rumen ...
  • Milliken, George A.; Travers, S.E.; Garrett, Karen A. (2010-01-11)
    Microarray applications for the study of gene expression are becoming accessible for researchers in more and more systems. Applications from field or laboratory experiments are often complicated by the need to superimpose ...
  • Knapp, F.W.; McKee, M. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-09-20)
    During the past year a new grubicide application method has been tested for use in controlling cattle grubs. Called the pour-on method, it consists of pouring a small amount of a special formulation of systematic grubicide ...
  • Laudert, S.; Sauerwein, C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-12-08)
    An experimental implant containing Beta-estradiol increased (P<.05) daily gain of grazing yearling steers by 15.5% compared to controls. Compudose implants increased (P<.01) daily gain by 13.5%. There was no gain difference ...
  • Lechtenberg, K.F.; Avery, T.B.; Nagaraja, Tiruvoor G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-11-22)
    We have demonstrated that ultrasonography can be used to visualize liver abscess in live cattle. We have also developed a nonsurgical method of catheterizing the bovine portal vein and experimentally inducing liver ...
  • Cox, R.F.; Erhart, A.B. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2012-01-25)
    Experiments in the use of bicarbonate of soda for the control of death losses in the feedlot were begun last year. Two small scale tests indicated that it was highly beneficial. In this years experiments, four lots of ...
  • Berends, P. T.; Langemeier, Michael R.; Featherstone, Allen M. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2011-07-22)
    To remain competitive, dairy operatoins need to continue to improve production efficiency and manage costs. Kansas Farm Management Association data from 1991 to 1995 were used to measure technical, economic, and overall ...
  • Rowland, W.W.; Langemeier, Michael R.; Featherstone, Allen M.; Schurle, Bryan W. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-03-10)
    To remain competitive, hog operations will need to continue to improve production efficiency and manage costs. Kansas Farm Management Association data from 1992 to 1994 were used to measure technical, economic, and overall ...
