  • Nelssen, Jim L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-04-22)
    The increased occurrence of early weaning (4 weeks of age or less) of pigs has resulted in increased problems with a postweaning "lag" in many commercial swine units. The nursery is the weak link of most commercial swine ...
  • Peterson, Jeffrey M.; Bernardo, Daniel J. (2013-04-09)
    The most comprehensive water policy analysis conducted on the High Plains region to date was the High Plains Ogallala Regional Aquifer Study completed in 1982. Twenty years later, we had a unique opportunity to compare the ...
  • Smith, E.F.; Richardson, D.; Drake, C.L.; Brent, B.E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-03-17)
    Trials at several research centers as well as in Kansas (Bulletin 483, page 32) have shown roughage may be satisfactorily omitted from finishing rations for cattle and doing so, often reduces feed required per pound of ...
  • Smith, E.F.; Richardson, D.; Deyoe, C.W. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-04-28)
    The finishing ration for yearling steers should contain a minimum of about 10% protein. Sorghum grain frequently contains 10% protein; this test was to determine if such sorghum grain meets protein requirements. The ...
  • Dunham, James R. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-08-02)
    Wetter than normal growing and harvesting conditions have resulted in a short supply of high quality alfalfa. Because forage quality affects milk production in early lactation cows, dairy farmers are encouraged to ...
  • Uwituze, S.; Parsons, G.L.; Karges, K.K.; Gibson, M.L.; Hollis, Larry C.; Drouillard, James S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2011-03-30)
    Requirements for elemental sulfur in feedlot diets have been established to be approximately 0.15% with a maximum upper threshold of 0.40% of diet dry matter. Feeding ethanol fermentation by-products, such as distillers ...
  • Uwituze, S.; Parsons, G.L.; Schneider, C.J.; Karges, K.K.; Gibson, M.L.; Hollis, Larry C.; Drouillard, James S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2011-03-30)
    Distillers grains with solubles are becoming an increasingly important staple of cattle diets because of rapid expansion of the fuel ethanol industry. Sulfuric acid often is used in ethanol production processes to clean ...
  • Reinhardt, Christopher D (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2014-05-12)
    The beneficial effects of anabolic implants with respect to feedlot performance and carcass weight are nearly unequivocal. Although individual prospective studies may have concluded that there are no significant differences ...
  • Allee, G.L.; Riley, Jack G.; Koch, B.A.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-05-07)
    Two trials involving 105 finishing pigs (initial average weight 125 pounds) and 55 growing pigs (initial average weight 28 pounds) were conducted to determine the nutritional value of high-moisture, acid-treated milo in ...
  • 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 ...
