  • 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% ...
  • McCollough, R.L.; Drake, C.L.; Schalles, R.R.; Roth, G.N.; Harrison, K.F. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1971)
    Hybrid sorghum grain is the major source of energy in livestock finishing rations in the Midwest. In 1969, 739 million bushels of sorghum grain were produced in the United States and 620 million bushels, or 84% were fed ...
  • Axe, D.; Bolsen, K.; Lee, R.; Herron, George M. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1986)
    Wheat and high moisture sorghum grain were fed singly and in two combinations in a 121-day feedlot trial at the Garden City Branch Experiment Station. Feed efficiency improved with increasing proportions of wheat in ...
  • Gross, K.L.; Harmon, D.L.; Avery, T.B. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1987)
    Steers fed diets based on dry-rolled wheat or sorghum grain alone or combined (50:50) showed no differences in net portal fluxes of glucose, L-lactate, ammonia, urea, or alpha-amino nitrogen. Portal blood flow was increased ...
  • Bell, T.D.; Erhart, A.B. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1952)
    The lambs in this year's experiment’s were secured directly from the mountain range in Southern Utah, and included Columbia-Rambouillet crosses as well as lambs of Suffolk-Ramhouillet breeding. They averaged 76 pounds ...
  • Bell, T.D.; Erhart, A.B. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1953)
    The tests this year compared whole milo with steam rolled milo, and with ground milo when fed with a standard roughage ration of ground sorghum stover plus a protein supplement and supplemental salt and limestone. The ...
  • Bell, T.D.; Erhart, A.B. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1955)
    The tests this year compared whole milo with ground milo grain fed with a standard roughage ration of ground sorghum stover, protein supplement, and supplemental salt and limestone. The roughage comparisons included (1) ...
  • Bell, T.D.; Erhart, A.B. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1954)
