  • Cochran, R.C.; Brandt, Robert T., Jr.; Vanzant, E.S.; Clary, E.M.; Owensby, Clenton E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1990)
    During the first 2 yr of a 4-yr experiment, increasing the level of grain sorghum supplementation (from 2 to 4 Ibid) for steers managed within an intensive-early stocking program tended to increase average daily gain in ...
  • Montgomery, Sean P.; Sindt, J.J.; Farran, T.B.; LaBrune, H.J.; Hunter, R.D.; Higgins, James J.; Nutsch, T.A.; Drouillard, James S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2000)
    One hundred sixty-four crossbred beef steers were used to determine optimal Rumensin ® concentrations in limit-fed, high-energy, growing diets. Diets contained 30, 40, or 50 grams of Rumensin per ton of dry matter ...
  • Davis, Duane L.; Stevenson, Jeffrey S.; Minton, J. Ernest (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1987)
    Management and biological factors combine to limit litter size in swine herds. With present technology, improving litter size depends upon increasing the number born in the first litter and prolonging sow longevity. Methods ...
  • Stevenson, Jeffrey S.; Shirley, John E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2003)
    Increased milking frequency during partial or whole lactations increases milk yields, but generally reduces percentages of milk fat and protein. Because of greater milk volume, total fat and protein are not reduced. ...
  • Dietz, Garret J.; Houser, Terry A.; Gerlach, Bryce M.; Adhikari, Koushik; Gonzalez, John M.; Unruh, John A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2014)
    Top sirloin butts are commonly blade-tenderized to significantly increase tenderness, but minimal data have shown the relationship between blade tenderization and color stability as well as the effect of extended postmortem ...
  • Cartmill, J. A.; Rozell, Timothy G.; El-Zarkouny, S. Z.; Smith, J. F.; Stevenson, Jeffrey S. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1999)
    Cows exposed to heat stress before or after calving or both are prone to reduced fertility because of reduced expression of estrus and less embryonic survival if pregnant. Cows calving on three dairy farms during the ...
  • Bailey, E.A.; Titgemeyer, Evan C.; Cochran, R.C.; Jones, Timothy J.; Olson, K. C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2012)
    Pre- and postpartum deficiencies of metabolizable protein have been identified as potentially limiting to productivity of beef cows and calves. Pre-partum supplementation of forage-based diets with ruminally undegraded ...
  • Richert, B.T.; Goodband, Robert D.; Tokach, Michael D.; Nelssen, Jim L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1996)
    One hundred eighty-five sows were used to evaluate effects of the interrelationship between isoleucine and valine on sow and litter performance. Litter weight and weight gain at weaning increased as dietary valine, isoleucine, ...
  • Lin, C.; Hart, R.A.; Bolsen, K.K.; Dickerson, J.T.; Curtis, J.L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1990)
    Lactic acid bacteria (LAB), Enterobacteriaceae, yeasts, molds, and lactate-using yeasts were examined on four cuttings of alfalfa, each at three maturity stagest and three com hybrids in 1989. In addition, microflora ...
  • Hultine, V.; Kiracofe, G.H.; Schalles, R.R.; McKee, R.M.; DeBenedetti, R.C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1977)
    Calving was induced in 26 of 29 Polled Hereford cows that were injected between 271 and 287 days of gestation intramuscularly with 20 mgs. Of dexamethasone (Azium) and 10 mgs. ECP (estradiol cypionate). Oxytocin, give ...
  • Morrison, D.G.; Kiracofe, G.H.; Heersche, G. Jr.; Schalles, R.R.; McKee, M. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1975)
    Calving was induced in 44 Polled Hereford cows at 275 days’ gestation. Twenty mgs. Of dexamethasone (Azium) given intramuscularly caused parturition an average of 43.1 hours after injection (range 21 to 57). An injection ...
  • DeBenedetti, R.; Kiracofe, G.H.; Hultine, V.; McKee, R.M.; Schalles, R.R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1976)
    Twenty-six Polled Hereford and Simmental-cross heifers that had not cycled by the beginning of the breeding season were given an ear implant and injected with an estrogen-progestogen compound. The implant was removed after ...
  • Stewat, R.E.; Mee, M.O.; Rettmer, I.; Stevenson, Jeffrey S. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1992)
    Low thyroid activity (hypothyroidism) has been reported to decrease sexual behavior associated with reproduction in several species. Using estradiol benzoate (EB) and progesterone (P ), we attempted to induce 4 estrus ...
  • Stevenson, Jeffrey S.; Davis, Duane L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1983)
    Our objective was to determine the effectiveness of inducing estrus during lactation by reducing the nursing load of the sow between 2 and 4 weeks after farrowing. lactating sows were separated from their litters for ...
  • Stokka, Gerald L.; Brandt, Robert T., Jr.; Edwards, A.J.; Spire, M.F.; Smith, J.E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1993)
    Twenty-four finishing steers (758 lb) were subcutaneously vaccinated and revaccinated 31 days later with 1) sterile saline, 2) a clostridial perfringens C&D toxoid, or 3) a 7-way clostridial bacterin-toxoid to evaluate ...
  • Goodband, Robert D.; Nelssen, Jim L.; Tokach, Michael D.; Dritz, Steven S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1996)
