  • Young, B.; Ilg, H.; Bolsen, K. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-01-27)
    Dry corn (dry), Harvestore ensiled high-moisture corn, stave silo ensiled high-moisture corn (stave H.M.C.) and stave H.M.C. ensiled with NaOH, Cold-flo ammonia, or Silo-Best additives were evaluated in steer and ...
  • Young, B.; Ilg, H.; Bolsen, K. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 2010-12-15)
    Dry corn, stave ensiled high-moisture corn (HMC), stave ensiled HMC treated with urea, and Harvestore ensiled HMC were evaluated in a steer finishing trial. Alfalfa hay and corn silage were the roughages and soybean meal ...
  • Trotter, M.; Allee, G.L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-05-07)
    Eighty-seven crossbred pigs (averaging 95 pounds initially) were used to compare the value of sorghum grain harvested with high-moisture and stored in an oxygen-limiting structure with that harvested with high-moisture ...
  • Allee, G.L.; Deyoe, C.W.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-05-07)
    The feeding value of high-moisture milo treated with organic acids for finishing swine was studied in two trials involving 56 pigs. There were no significant differences in daily gain, feed intake, feed efficiency, or ...
  • Uwituze, S.; Heidenreich, J.M.; Drouillard, James S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2009-12-07)
    Advantages of steam flaking grain are less with respect to growth performance and diet digestion when a portion of distillers grains is substituted for grain. Ruminal pH typically is lower in cattle fed flaked-grain diets ...
  • Wang, Xiaolei; Chen, Jiani; Xie, Zhouli; Liu, Sanzhen; Nolan, Trevor; Ye, Huaxun; Zhang, Mingcai; Guo, Hongqing; Schnable, Patrick S.; Li, Zhaohu; Yin, Yanhai (2014-12-02)
    The plant steroid hormones, brassinosteroids (BRs), play important roles in plant growth, development and responses to environmental stresses. BRs signal through receptors localized to the plasma membrane and other signaling ...
  • Jones, R.; Langemeier, Michael R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-03-02)
    This study examines historical net returns to average Kansas swine producers over the past 16 years. Swine production has been a profitable enterprise. As expected, average returns per head have been higher for ...
  • Ciampitti, Ignacio A.; Vara Prasad, P.V.
    Unraveling the complexity underpinning nitrogen (N) use efficiency (NUE) can be physiologically approached via examining grain N sources and N internal efficiency (NIE) (yield to plant N content ratio). The main objective ...
  • Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-04-15)
    During the past 6 yr, extensive research has been conducted at KSU to evaluate feeding systems and various types of wet and dry feeders. Comparisons have been made between timed-feeding and ad libitum feeding systems ...
  • Hinde, Katie; Carpenter, Abigail J.; Clay, John S.; Bradford, Barry J. (2014-04-30)
    Mammalian females pay high energetic costs for reproduction, the greatest of which is imposed by lactation. The synthesis of milk requires, in part, the mobilization of bodily reserves to nourish developing young. Numerous ...
  • Lamb, G.C.; Hoffman, D.P.; Kobayashi, Y.; Stevenson, Jeffrey S. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-05-05)
    The objective of this study was to examine changes in ovarian steroids in relation to the onset of first standing estrus detected by pressure-sensitive rump-mounted devices (ABS HeatWatch® [HW]). Twenty Holstein ...
  • Mock, Donald E.; Schalles, R.R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-11-12)
    Dustacators (combination mineral feeders and livestock dusting devices) were used for four beef herds at Kansas State University in 1985. Loose mineral was supplied in all four Dustacator tubs, which were adjusted to low ...
  • Mundt, C. C.; Garrett, Karen A. (2012-06-04)
    The use of host diversity as a tool for management of potato late blight has not been viewed as promising in the past. But the increasing importance of late blight internationally has brought new consideration to all ...
  • Bayoumy, Mohamed H.; Osman, Mohamed A.; Michaud, J. P. (2015-03-25)
    Physical plant characteristics can influence predator foraging and their behavioral responses to each other. This study examined the searching efficiency and functional response of adult female Stethorus gilvifrons Mulsant ...
  • Lee, C.Y.; Kastner, Curtis L.; Dikeman, Michael E.; Hunt, Melvin C.; Kropf, Donald H.; Lyon, M.; Fung, Daniel Y. C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-02-09)
    To help insure that hot-processed beef has an acceptable shelf life and is microbiologically safe, the microbial characteristics of the product must be evaluated. This is particularly true for hot-processed cuts that are ...
  • Bradford, Barry J. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2014-03-14)
    In the past, efforts to improve the transition to lactation have focused largely on preventing infections and maximizing energy intake in transition cows, and these issues have generally been treated independently. New ...
  • Schmidt, W.E.; Davis, Duane L.; Stevenson, Jeffrey S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-04-30)
    We penned sows after weaning either in groups of 4 or 5 or individually in gestation stalls. Beginning 3 days after weaning sows were checked twice daily and artificially inseminated 24 and 36 hr after first detected estrus. ...
  • Minton, J. Ernest; Knoppel, E.L.; Stewart, R.E.; Viker, S.D.; Kiracofe, G.H.; Stevenson, Jeffrey S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-10-05)
    The "suckling response" maintains anestrus in beef cows for about 40 to 60 days postpartum. The suckling response remains intact in mastectomized cows, so stimulation of the inguinal area, and not milk flow or teat stimulation, ...
  • Roberts, H.A. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2012-09-20)
    Milk with high solids-not-fat is valuable to the consumer for its flavor and nutritional value and to the manufacturer of milk products, especially relating to cheese yield. Solids-not-fat consists of all solids in milk ...
