    Sand flies Lutzomyia (Psathyromyia) shannoni (Dyar) and Lu. (Helcocyrtomyia) vexator (Coquillet) were collected for the first time in southwest Missouri and southeast Kansas, expanding the known range of these species in ...
  • Morrill, J.L.; Laster, J.F.; Morrill, J.M.; Feyerherm, A.M. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1992)
    Holstein steer calves (n = 96) were on experiment from 8 to 18 wk of age. Control calves were fed a diet in which all supplemental protein was from soybean meal; in the experimental diet, part of the soybean meal ...
  • Pulley, Stephanie L.; Hill, Scott L.; Stevenson, Jeffrey S. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2013)
    Two experiments were conducted to assess pregnancy outcomes after a 5-day Ovsynch-56 Resynch (RES; gonadotropin-releasing hormone injection 5 days before [GnRH-1; d 0] and 56 hours (GnRH-2) after PGF2α [PG] injections ...
  • Hendricks, Nathan P.; Peterson, Jeffrey M. (2012)
    Irrigation water demand is estimated using field-level panel data from Kansas over 16 years. The cost of pumping varies over time due to changes in energy prices and across space due to differences in the depth to water. ...
  • Thompson, K. E.; Lamb, G.C.; Stevenson, Jeffrey S.; Grieger, David M. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1999)
    As in our previous studies, the GnRH + PGF2" treatment was very effective in inducing a fertile estrus and(or) ovulation. Ovulations induced in response to the first GnRH injection averaged 48% in three herds and ranged ...
  • Lamb, G.C.; Cartmill, J.A.; Hensley, B.A.; Marple, T.J.; Stevenson, Jeffrey S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1999)
    The Cosynch protocol (GnRH 7 days before and again 48 h after PGF2" with AI at the second GnRH injection) produced pregnancy rates in suckled beef cows that exceeded 50% without heat detection and with only three handlings ...
  • Allee, G.L.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1972)
    One hundred fifty-three barrows and gilts were used to evaluate flaking of corn, wheat, and sorghum grain for weaned pigs. Flaking increased rate of gain and improved feed efficiency (9 to 10%). Pigs fed corn rations gained ...
  • Moyer, Joseph L.; Whitworth, R. Jeffery; Davis, Holly N. (2014)
    Alfalfa (Medicago sativa Leyss) is an important forage crop whose production is hampered by pests, including the alfalfa weevil (Hypera postica Gyllenhal) which is a major problem in many areas. Flaming during dormancy ...
  • Luchsinger, S.E.; Garcia Zepeda, C.M.; Chambers, Edgar, IV; Hollingsworth, M.E.; Hunt, Melvin C.; Marsden, James L.; Stroda, Sally L.; Rubio Canas, E.J.; Kastner, Curtis L.; Kuecker, W.G.; Mata, T.; Kropf, Donald H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1995)
    Irradiation and irradiation source had little to no effect on flavor and aroma of boneless pork chops, either frozen or chilled. Coupled with consumer concerns about food safety and well-documented improvement in consumer ...
  • Yancey, E.J.; Dikeman, Michael E.; Hachmeister, K.A.; Chambers, Edgar, IV; Milliken, George A.; Westcott, E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2003)
    The infraspinatus muscle (top blade steak) from the chuck clod, the gluteus medius muscle (top sirloin steak) from the sirloin, and the psoas major muscle (tenderloin steak) from the loin were obtained from A- and B-maturity ...
  • Koch, B.A.; Allee, G.L.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1977)
    Supplemental vitamin C fed at two different levels (550 or 1,100mg, per kg, of diet) did not improve animal performance at the swine research center. Adding apple flavor or sodium bicarbonate did not change results.
  • Koch, B.A.; Allee, G.L.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1976)
    Groups of growing pigs restricted to control feed or feed containing one of 5 commercial flavoring agents or taste enhancers consumed similar amounts of feed and made similar weight gains and similar feed/gain.
  • Koch, B.A.; Loeppke, D.W. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1965)
    Two flavoring compounds, monosodium glutamate (MSG) and flance, were used separately and in combination in rations for growing-finishing swine. Wood molasses, a source of energy, was used with the two flavoring compounds. Sixty ...
  • 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)

    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)

  • Harner, Joseph P.; Murphy, James P. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1997)
