  • Pesta, A.C.; Drouillard, James S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010)
    Nutrition can affect bull fertility. Omega-3 fatty acids such as alpha linolenic, eicosapentaenoic, and docosahexaenoic acids can affect motility and morphology of sperm. Flaxseed is an excellent source of alpha linolenic ...
  • Van Metre, D.C.; St. Jean, G.; Vestweber, J. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1996)
    Cattle that become recumbent (unable to get up) as the result of calving difficulty, low blood calcium, traumatic injuries, or other disorders are prone to develop subsequent pressure damage of muscles, nerves, and ...
  • Rhodes, M.T.; Minton, J. Ernest; Stevenson, Jeffrey S.; Davis, Duane L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1986)
    Nineteen gilts were assigned to receive either 0 or 15 mg altrenogest/day for 14 consecutive days. On the day corresponding to the last altrenogest treatment, gilts not fed altrenogest were injected twice (morning and ...
  • Schalles, R.R.; Kiracofe, G.; Smith, E.F. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1976)
    Starting to flush cows 95 days before the breeding season began significantly increase conception rate and required less total feed.
  • Harner, Joseph P.; Murphy, James P. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1997)
    Flushing systems that collect and transport manure are utilized in dairy operations. The sanitation attainable and reduced labor requirements can make flushing a desirable option. Designed flush systems utilize a flush ...
  • Harner, Joseph P.; Strahm, T.D.; Murphy, James P. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2000)
    Sand can be handled successfully either in a scrape or flush system by developing handling systems that allow for the sand-laden manure to settle prior to the effluent entering a lagoon. The abrasiveness and density ...
  • Nelssen, Jim L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1988)
    Folic acid is an essential B-vitamin for swine, and green, leafy plants are an -excellent source of this vitamin. Even though pigs cannot synthesize folic acid, bacteria in their lower gut can, making feces another source ...
  • Perry, R.C.; Corah, L.R.; Beal, W.E.; Kiracofe, G.H.; Minton, J. Ernest; Cochran, R.C.; Brethour, J.R.; Stevenson, Jeffrey S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1991)
    Twenty-six, Hereford × Angus, suckled cows were utilized to determine patterns of follicular development and associated changes in reproductive hormones during postpartum anestrus and first estrous cycles. Ultrasonography per ...
  • Sullivan, Rachael R.; Faris, Brian R.; Eborn, Douglas; Grieger, David M.; Cino-Ozuna, Ada G.; Rozell, Timothy G. (2013)
    Background: Several alternatively-spliced mRNA transcripts of the follicle stimulating hormone receptor (FSHR) have been identified in sheep, including FSHR-1 (G protein-coupled form), FSHR-2 (dominant negative form), and ...
  • Helsel, R.M.; Posler, Gerry L.; Riley, Jack G.; Smith, E.F.; Ward, G.M. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1978)
    Late summer grazing of alfalfa or sudangrass by cattle coming off half-season, double-stocked native grazing showed no advantage over immediate feedlot finishing. Late-summer grazers gained less in the feedlot and required ...
  • Vanier, M. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1991)
    In recent years, food safety has become an issue of concern for the beef industry, beef processors, and the consuming public. Even though America has the safest and most wholesome food supply in the world, consumers ...
  • Harbers, L.H. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1986)
    It has been over 15 years since an analytical instrument was developed that could rapidly determine the concentration of organic compounds from the spectra produced by the bonding between carbon and certain molecules. ...
  • Posler, Gerry L.; Bolsen, K. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1977)
    The attempt to increase total forage TDN per acre by double-cropping was only moderately successful in 1975 and 1976. Limiting factors were relatively poor stands and extremely dry summer growing seasons.
  • Oltjen, J.; Bolsen, K.; Moore, W. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1978)
    We harvested barley, wheat and oat varieties at the dough stage. Average yields in tons of 65% moisture forage/acre were 9.3 (barley), 10.2 (hard wheat), 9.5 (soft wheat), and 10.0 (oats). Barley variety yields varied ...
  • Bolsen, K.; Moore, W. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1977)
    Interest in small cereal grain silages for beef cattle has increased in recent years. Two years' research at this station (Prog. Rpt. 262) has shown: (1) winter barley and winter wheat had similar forage yields and (2) ...
  • Bolsen, K.; Berger, L.L.; Moore, W. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1976)
    Our objectives were to determine the effects of variety and stage of plant growth at harvest on forage and grain yields of wheat and barley. Plots were grown at the Animal Science and Industry Farm near Manhattan in ...
  • Umoh, J.E.; Harbers, L.H.; Smith, E.F. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1977)
    Forage intake was used as an estimate of the nutritive value of Flint Hills pastures. The organic matter intake (OMI) ranged from 16.3 lb. to 22.05 lb. (7.40 to 10.0 kg) between June-August, 1976, and there was no clear ...
