    Perennial grass mixtures planted on Conservation Reserve Program (CRP) land are a potential source of dedicated bioenergy feedstock. Long-term nitrogen (N) and harvest management are critical factors for maximizing biomass ...
  • Taylor, Mykel Rae; Sieverkropp, Elizabeth (2014-04-28)
    This study quantifies the price impacts from the closure of all U.S. horse slaughter plants in 2007 on live horses at a Montana auction. The hedonic pricing model includes supply and demand factors such as horse-specific ...
  • Farmer, C.G.; Cochran, R.C.; Simms, D.D.; Heldt, J.S.; Mathis, C.P. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-08-24)
    Sixteen ruminally fistulated steers were used to evaluate the effects of feeding supplements containing combinations of two wheat-milling by-products on forage intake, digestibility, and ruminal characteristics. The ...
  • Laudert, S.; Kuhl, Gerry L.; Walker, M. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-12-14)
    A one hundred and forty day field trial was conducted to evaluate the relative performance of steers implanted with Compudose, Ralgro and Synovex-S. Daily gains of cattle receiving a single initial implant were increased ...
  • Laudert, S.; Corah, L.; Nelson, R.; Sauerwein, C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-12-10)
    Three field trials were conducted with grazing yearling steers to compare Compudose® and Ralgro® implants. Compudose® and Ralgro® implants. Compudose®-implanted steers gained faster (P<.05) than controls. Ralgro® improved ...
  • Eck, T.P.; Corah, L.R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-10-14)
    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 ...

    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, 2011-03-17)
    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, ...
