    To remain competitive, hog operations will need to continue to improve production efficiency and manage costs. Kansas Farm Management Association data from 1992 to 1994 were used to measure technical, economic, and overall ...
  • Fox, John A. (North American Institute for Beef Economic Research, 2010-01-14)
    Spurred by the introduction of renewable fuel standards and the elimination of MTBE as a gasoline additive, U.S. production of fuel ethanol expanded from about 1.6 billion gallons in 2000, to 9 billion gallons in ...
  • Johnson, Sandra K.; Dhuyvetter, Kevin C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2011-03-30)
    The use of artificial insemination (AI) in the dairy industry grew tremendously in the 1940s and has since become the industry norm. Adoption of AI in the beef industry has been much slower largely due to the more extensive ...
  • Miller, N.; Breiner, Ryan M.; Taul, Tom; Tucker, Sharon K.; Fike, Karol E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2013-03-19)
    Age at puberty is a crucial factor influencing a young bull’s ability to pass a breeding soundness examination (BSE) at a year of age, and reducing that age may prove beneficial to beef producers. For beef females, ...
  • Fike, Karol E.; Miller, N. A. (2015-05-18)
    The objective of this study was to determine whether continuous, long-term, fenceline exposure of prepubertal beef bulls to cycling beef females reduced age at puberty and influenced the percentage of bulls that passed ...
  • Koch, B.A.; Allee, G.L.; Schoneweis, D.A.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-05-07)
    Ten mg. of iron per day fed orally 24 days in addition to 150 mg. injected when pigs were 3 days old did not significantly increase Hb of baby pigs. Neither did it increase average daily gain or weight-per-day-of-age at ...
  • Roberson, J.R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-12-10)
    Extra-label drug use (ELDU) is needed to provide optimal therapy for ill dairy cattle. Proper ELDU requires cooperation and compliance between the veterinarian and producer to ensure that proper drug withdrawal times ...
  • Strabler, R.; Crisler, A.J.; Depenbusch, Brandon E.; Drouillard, James S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2009-12-07)
    Steam flaking is the predominant means of processing grains in large commercial feedlots. Compared with dry rolling, steam flaking improves total tract digestibility and feed efficiency by 8 to 15%. In steam-flaked corn ...
  • Richert, B.T.; Gugle, Terry L.; Hines, Robert H.; Hancock, Joe D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-02-11)
    Two experiments were conducted to determine the nutritional value of extruded corn, sorghum, and soybean meal (SBM) for nursery-age pigs. Experiment 1 involved 180 weanling pigs, with an average age of 22 d and average ...
  • Richert, B.T.; Gugle, Terry L.; Hines, Robert H.; Hancock, Joe D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-02-11)
    Eighty barrows (113.7 lb average initial weight) were used to determine the effects of extruding corn, sorghum, wheat, and barley on growth performance, carcass merit, nutrient digestibility, and changes in stomach ...
  • Richert, B.T.; Hines, Robert H.; Hancock, Joe D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-02-11)
    Two experiments were conducted to determine the effects of extruding sorghum and soybeans for weanling pigs. The first experiment involved 66 piglets with an average age of 19 d and average weight of 10.8 lb. Two diets ...
  • Park, A.F.; Sheffel, M.V.; Titgemeyer, Evan C.; Shirley, John E. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service., 2011-05-04)
    Twenty-four Holstein cows were used in six 4×4 Latin squares to evaluate the effects of substituting extruded-expelled cottonseed meal (Express™) for whole cottonseed and solvent soybean meal in diets for lactating ...
  • Meyer, M. J.; Shirley, E. C.; Titgemeyer, Evan C.; Scheffel, Michael V.; Park, A. F. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2011-07-22)
    Twenty-four pluriparous Holstein cows were used in six 4×4 Latin squares to evaluate the value of extruded-expelled cottonseed meal (EECM) with lint as a source of rumen undegradable protein (RUP) for lactating dairy ...
  • Mills, C.G.; Gugle, Terry L.; Hines, Robert H.; Hancock, Joe D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-03-26)
    One hundred-seventeen primiparous sows were used to determine the effects of extruded sorghum grain and soybeans in lactation diets on sow and litter performance. The sows were fed a sorghum-soybean-based diet with the ...
  • Gugle, Terry L.; Hines, Robert H.; Hancock, Joe D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-04-02)
    One hundred forty-four finishing pigs (124 lb avg initial wt) were used to determine the effects of extruding sorghum, soybean meal (SBM), and whole soybeans on growth performance and nutrient digestibility. Treatments ...
  • Gugle, Terry L.; Hines, Robert H.; Hancock, Joe D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-04-08)
    One hundred forty-four finishing pigs (124 lb avg initial wt) were used to determine the effects of extruding sorghum, soybean meal (SBM), and whole soybeans on growth performance and nutrient digestibility. Treatments ...
