    Body condition, parity, and days postpartum at the onset of the breeding season determine the proportion of cows that initiated first postpartum ovarian activity and ovulated before the start of the breeding season. Hormonal ...
  • Mackintosh, D.L.; Watt, D.B. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1949)
    The enormous increase in the use of frozen foods and in the number of frozen locker plants offering freezer storage to the individual. together, have emphasized the need for more research in the field of frozen meat ...
  • Simms, D.D.; Schwenke, J.R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1993)
    Results of 13 sales of Angus (n=185) and Simmental (n=544) bulls at central bull tests in Kansas from 1988 through 1992 were analyzed to determine the relationship between performance and the price received. The Kansas ...
  • Smith, E.F.; Parrish, D.B.; Splitter, E.J. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1953)
    The object of this test was to learn what effect withholding salt, has on fattening calves. Twenty good quality Hereford steer calves were divided into two lots of 10 steers each and were self-fed a mixture of 1 pound ...
  • Goehring, T.; Corah, L.; Higgins, James J. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1987)
    A statistical analysis was used to determine which live animal traits are useful in predicting reproductive performance in first-calf heifers. Heifer condition score at calving and change in condition score postcalving, ...
  • Schroeder, Ted C.; Mintert, J.; Jones, R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1993)
    Previous research indicates that the number of bids received on pens of fed cattle has a positive influence on price. This study was undertaken to determine what factors influence the number of bids received on pens ...
  • Coalson, J.L.; Corah, L.R.; Stokka, Gerald L.; Blecha, Frank (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1997)
    A study was conducted to determine the effect of precalving supplementation with vitamin E and fat on the reproductive performance of first lactation cows and the health of their calves. Approximately 50 days before ...
  • Gnad, D.; Marston, T.; Llewellyn, Donald A.; Palmer, G.; Hollis, Larry C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2004)
    Thirty-four Anaplasma marginale seropositive cows from a herd of 236 were allocated to treatments: 5 animals served as untreated controls, and 29 animals were treated with three injections of long-acting oxytetracycline ...
  • Gelso, Brett R.; Fox, John A.; Peterson, Jeffrey M. (2008)
    We survey landowners to investigate the costs associated with the presence of permanent or seasonal wetland areas in cropland. We find, as predicted by our conceptual model, that dispersion of wetland areas imposes substantial ...

  • Schroeder, Ted C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1988)
    Analysis of weekly retail, wholesale, and farm beef price data indicated that a time lag exists between price changes at the various market levels. Farm-level slaughter cattle price changes typically lead wholesale beef ...
  • Wheat, J.D.; Allee, G.L.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1981)
    Based on the first 76 farrowings recorded, average duration (the time between the birth of the first pig and of the last pig in the litter) was 129.09±7.28 minutes, and the average time interval between pigs was 15.71± 1.02 ...
