  • Allee, G.L.; Milliken, George A.; Nelssen, Jim L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1984)
    An on-farm experiment was conducted utilizing 140 sows to compare the effect of feeding either fat or additional corn during late gestation on subsequent pig performance. Beginning on day 100 of gestation and until the day ...
  • Pollmann, D.S.; Allee, G.L.; Schoenherr, W.D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1983)
    Two on-farm trials with a total of 264 sows were conducted to evaluate the effects of added fat in the diet during the last seven days of lactation and/or during the period from weaning to remating on days from weaning to ...
  • Bock, B.J.; Harmon, D.L.; Brandt, Robert T., Jr.; Schneider, J.E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1990)
    A replicated 3 x 3 Latin square design was used to explore the effects of fat source (none vs 3.5% soybean oil soapstock or animal tallow) when fed with high (1.0%) calcium on digestion and metabolism of a finishing diet ...
  • Kemp, K.E.; Dikeman, Michael E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1981)
    Data from 1669 steers show that equally palatable beef comes from carcasses with Choice marbling OR 0.4 inch of outside fat cover. Including cattle with 0.4 inch of fat and at least Slight marbling in a new choice grade ...
  • Harbers, L.H.; Ward, G.M. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1978)
    Calcium crystals were located in parallel rows surrounding vascular bundles in alfalfa leaves and under the epidermis of alfalfa stems. The crystals remain intact on vascular bundles in the rumen. Most crystals are dislodged ...
  • Thakur, R.A.; Wallace, N.; Smith, J. Scott; Nagaraja, T. G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1996)
    Fumonisins are water-soluble carcinogenic mycotoxins produced by many species of Fusarium molds. Fumonisins occur widely in corn, making them a problem in corn-based feed. Their toxicity has been established in many ...
  • Smith, E.F.; Koch, B.A.; Boren, Fred W. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1959)
    Heifers used in this experiment were the light end of calves purchased from the Pumray Ranch, Logan, N.M., the fall of 1957. Twenty-one heifers were placed in two groups on the basis of live weight and grade. One lot ...
  • Smith, E.F.; Good, D.L.; Cox, R.F.; Mackintosh, D.L. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1951)
    The purpose of this experiment is to develop a desirable system of fattening heifer calves similar to the deferred full-feeding system for steer calves. The system developed for good quality steer calves consists of three ...
  • Pickett, A.G.; Weber, A.L. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1947)
    The two preceding tests with heifer calves were conducted without the use of grass. Varying amounts of grain and protein supplements were fed with silage during the winter season and then a full feed of grain was used ...
  • Pickett, A.G.; Smith, E.F. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1949)
    The previous tests with heifer calves have been completed. Pasture was not used in these tests but instead, heifer calves were fed a full feed of grain, three-fourths feed, one-half feed, one-fourth feed and no grain, ...
  • Pickett, A.G.; Smith, E.F. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1948)
    Eight lots of heifers are being used in the current test. All eight lots have been wintered on a daily ration of 20 pounds Atlas sorgo silage, full access to prairie hay in racks, and 8 protein supplement. Dehydrated ...
  • Smith, E.F.; Good, D.L.; Pickett, A.G. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1950)
    The purpose of this experiment is to develop a desirable system or systems of fattening heifer calves similar to the Deferred Full Feeding system for steer calves. The system developed for good quality steer calves consisted ...

  • Baker, F.H.; Smith, E.F.; Cox, R.F. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1954)
    Milo grain and sorghum silage are extensively used in fattening rations for beef cattle in Kansas. A fattening ration composed of milo grain and sorghum silage contains sufficient protein to meet the recommended protein ...
  • Weber, A.D. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1946)
    In tests conducted at the Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station previous to the one reported herein, it was found that heifer calves fed 4 to 5 pounds of grain per head daily during the winter were too fleshy to turn on ...
  • Brazle, A.B.; Johnson, B.J.; Titgemeyer, Evan C.; Webel, S.K.; Davis, Duane L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2005)
