  • Dunham, James R. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1987)
    Feeding and managing dairy cows during the prepartum and early lactation periods have more effect on total lactation yields than all other factors. It is during this time that the pattern of milk production is established ...
  • Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1977)
    Forty-eight Yorkshire barrows and 48 Yorkshire gilts were fed separately three protein sequences to a finish weight of 250 to 260 lbs. Barrows gained faster and were more efficient on protein sequence B (16% protein diet ...
  • Chandran, Predeesh; Reese, John C.; Khan, Shah Alam; Wang, Dechun; Schapaugh, William T. Jr; Campbell, Leslie R. (2013)
    Soybean aphids have become a serious pest of soybean, Glycine max L. (Merrill), since they were first detected in North America in 2000. Three soybean aphid biotypes have been documented in the United States in the last ...
  • Simms, D.; Corah, L.; Kuhl, G.; Schalles, R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1984)
    Bull calves on nine Kansas ranches were either castrated and implanted with Ralgro, left intact and not implanted, or left intact and implanted with Ralgro, with performance evaluated through slaughter. Bulls produced ...
  • Aperce, C.; Drouillard, James S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2012)
    Crude glycerin is a byproduct of ethanol production and is used as a carbohydrate source for cattle feed. Glycerin levels in previous studies have ranged from 0 to 20% of diet dry matter, and concentrations of 8% or less ...
  • Riley, Jack G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1978)
    I conducted two trails during 1977 using 115 cows culled from KSU cow herds. Dry cows on lush brome grass gained 1.5 pounds per head per day. Those on a 60% concentrate ration average 2.2 pounds/day; those on 80% concentrate ...
  • Waylan, A.T.; Johnson, B.J.; Gnad, D.P.; Woodworth, J.C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2004)
    The objective was to determine the effects of L-carnitine on cell proliferation and on messenger RNA (mRNA) concentrations in the insulin-like growth factor (IGF) system. Cultured porcine embryonic myoblasts (PEM) were ...
  • Gray, B.T.; Marston, T.T. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2005)
    The objective of this experiment was to determine if a 7-day feeding of melengesterol acetate (MGA) about 2 months before the breeding season would have an effect on puberty onset, response to estrous synchronization, ...
  • Corah, L.; Brazle, F.; Davidson, Jeffrey L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1981)
    Feeding MGA to grazing heifers suppressed estrus but did not improve gain.
  • Smith, E.F.; Pruitt, R.; Riley, Jack G.; Corah, L.; Owensby, Clenton E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1978)
    The feed additive, Monensin, was self-fed in a feed block to yearling cattle on summer pasture. Consumption of the block (0.29 lb. daily) supplied 116 mg. of Monensin daily, which failed to improve the cattle’s performance.
  • Schwartz, F.; Smith, E.; Riley, Jack G.; Corah, L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1977)
    Two grazing trials conducted at different locations in Kansas evaluated feeding Monensin to grazing yearling cattle. In one trial Monensin was fed with and without implant treatments of diethylstilbestrol or Ralgro. ...
  • Gugle, Terry L.; Fink, G.; Riley, Jack G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1976)
    Fifty-four yearling Hereford steers averaging 805 pounds were used in an 86-day finishing trial to determine the effect of adding low levels of propionic acid to steam flaked sorghum grain. Three treatments were examined. ...
  • Marston, T.T.; Kreikemeier, K.K.; Gleghorn, J.F.; Huck, G.L.; Wistuba, T.J. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1999)
    Two finishing trials were performed to determine if raw soybeans could be incorporated into diets to partially replace soybean meal and beef tallow. Our data indicated that no sacrifices in animal performance, feed ...
  • Jensen, M.; Held, R.; Smith, E.F.; Riley, Jack G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1982)
    Rumensin was self-fed in a loose salt mixture to yearling heifers on late-summer bluestem pasture (August to November). They ate 0.036 lbs. of salt mixture (124 mg of Rumensin) daily, but performance did not improve.
  • Black, P.L.; Parsons, G.L.; Shelor, M.K.; Karges, K.K.; Gibson, M.L.; Reinhardt, Christopher D.; Drouillard, James S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2009)
    Increased ethanol production in the United States has increased availability of by-products, giving producers an alternative to cereal grains. The by-product we evaluated was dried corn distillers grains with solubles. ...
  • Milton, C.T.; Brandt, Robert T., Jr.; Titgemeyer, Evan C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1998)
    Two hundred sixty-four Holstein steer calves (308 lb) were used in a 2×3 factorially designed experiment to compare the effect of two feeding systems and three implant strategies on performance and carcass characteristics. ...
  • Schingoethe, D. J. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1993)
    Dairy cows must consume a lot of feed to achieve the levels of production expected today; however, the nutrient needs of dairy cows vary immensely between the dry period and peak lactation. Requirements for the former ...
  • Smith, E.F.; Koch, B.A.; Good, D.L.; Boren, Fred W. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1959)
    This experiment was designed to collect data in regard to the optimum level of alfalfa hay feeding for calves wintered on bluestem pasture. One group of heifers was fed twice as much alfalfa hay as another, but ...
  • Hsu, A.; Allee, G.L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1980)
    Three feeding trials involving 96 starter pigs, 48 grower pigs and 48 finisher pigs were used to determine the feeding value of alfalfa leaf protein concentrate (ALPC) for swine. ALPC was substituted for 33%, 66% or 100% ...
