  • Eck, T.P.; Corah, L.R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1993)
    Feedlot performance of steers implanted with Compudose®, Implus-S®, or Synovex-S® was very similar. No statistical differences were detected among treatments. However, implanted steers gained an average of 4% faster ...
  • Laudert, S.B.; Kuhl, Gerry L.; Edwards, A.J. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1987)
    Heifers that were flank-spayed plus rumen-ovarian autografted (FS+A) responded similarly to Ralgro®, Synovex-H®, and Synovex-S® implants on' pasture. Grazing heifers spayed by the Kimberling-Rupp technique also responded ...
  • Reinhardt, Christopher D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010)
    Selection of dosage, timing, and number of anabolic implants continues to be a source of controversy for feed yard managers and their consultants. Although the dose-dependent effects on performance are fairly well accepted, ...
  • Spire, M.F.; Sargeant, J.M.; Blasi, Dale A.; Drouillard, James S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1999)
    Infrared thermography (IRT) can be used successfully to differentiate abscessed implanted ears from nonimplanted ears 8 days postimplanting. Abscessed ears averaged 5.7EF warmer than nonimplanted ears when ambient ...
  • Milton, C.T.; Brandt, Robert T., Jr.; Kuhl, Gerry L.; Anderson, P.T. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1996)
    Two hundred-sixteen Angus and Angus-cross steer calves (690 lb) were used in a 129- day finishing study to evaluate different implant strategies, including an experimental new implant for feedlot cattle that contains ...
  • Simms, D.D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1994)
    A total of 361, suckling, heifer calves was used over a 2-year period to assess the effects of implanting with either Ralgro® or Synovex-C® on growth and subsequent performance as replacement females. Both implants ...
  • Fahrenholz, Adam C.; McKinney, Leland J.; Wurth, C.E.; Behnke, Keith C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010)
    The American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers (ASABE) publishes a standard for identifying particle size by sieving (ASABE S319.4). However, this standard includes a number of options that allow the test ...
  • Spire, M.F.; Higgins, James J.; Hollis, Larry C.; Blasi, Dale A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2003)
    A retrospective analysis of 6,231 head of stocker and feeder cattle comprising 24 separate lots was conducted to evaluate the extent and degree of improper dosing that would have occurred in individual animals if all ...
  • Kropf, Donald H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1989)
    The word "improved" in a commercial sense means "altered product characteristics to meet the consumers' real and perceived needs." The pork industry in the 90's must progress toward offering products designed to meet ...
  • Smith, W.H.; Akinokun, J.; Schalles, R.R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1968)
    Two inbred lines of purebred Shorthorn cattle were established and progressively developed, to study production traits and effects of inbreeding. Inbreeding was initiated in the Wernace Premier Line in 1949 and in the ...
  • Smith, W.H.; Wheat, J.D.; Spies, H.G. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1966)
    The purebred Shorthorn beef cattle breeding experiment was initiated to study inheritance of production traits, to evaluate effects of inbreeding, and to explore the feasibility of using inbred lines for breeding improvement ...
  • Smith, W.H.; Wheat, J.D.; Spies, H.G. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1965)
    The purebred Shorthorn cattle breeding program was continued during 1964 according to the plan initiated in 1949. Inbreeding of the two lines has been continued. The Wernuere Premier Line is in its fifth generation and the ...
  • Smith, W.H.; Wheat, J.D.; Spies, H.; Gottlieb, H.A. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1962)
    The purebred Shorthorn cattle breeding program was continued during 1961 according to the breeding program initiated in 1949. Inbreeding of the two lines has been continued. The Wernacre Premier line is in its fourth ...
  • Smith, W.H.; Wheat, J.D. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1961)
    The purebred Shorthorn cattle breeding project was continued during 1960 according to the breeding program adopted when the study was initiated in 1949. Two inbred lines were established and have been continued. The Wernacre ...
  • Smith, W.H.; Holland, L.A.; Ibsen, H.L. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1954)
