  • Allee, G.L.; Schoneweis, D.A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1973)
    Two trials involving 128 pigs were conducted to study the effects of antibacterial preparations on rate and efficiency of gain by young pigs. In both trials, the antibacterial preparations increased rate of gain. In trial ...
  • Cochran, R.C.; Vanzant, E.S.; Titgemeyer, Evan C.; Jones, Timothy J.; Olson, K. C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1996)
    A study was conducted to determine the effect of varying the amount of supplemental degradable intake protein (DIP) and starch on prairie hay intake and digestibility. In general, DIP increased forage intake, whereas ...
  • Harmon, D.L.; Flood, A.D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1991)
    The influence of drinking water treatment (Oxion Inc., Hugoton, KS) on digestion and metabolism was evaluated in steers fed low- and high-forage diets. Water treatment did not influence digestibility of any nutrient ...
  • Kats, L.J.; Tokach, Michael D.; Goodband, Robert D.; Nelssen, Jim L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1992)
    A total of 1,350 pigs was used in three growth trials to determine the influence of weaning weight and average daily gain during the first week postweaning on subsequent growth performance. Average initial weight and ...
  • Davis, Duane L.; Schalles, R.R.; Kiracofe, G.; Good, D.L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1974)
    Winter nutrition requirements for beef cows grazing native tallgrass range in the Flint Hills were studied from 1968 through 1973. Three lb. milo was a better supplement to the basic ration of 3 lb. alfalfa hay than 1 ...
  • Pickett, A.G.; Smith, E.F. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1949)
    Five lots of good steer calves were used in this test which was started in the fall of 1946. Three lots were continued through two winters and two full grazing seasons. The other two lots were full fed as yearlings at ...
  • Pickett, A.G.; Smith, E.F. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1948)
    This test began with good to choice steer calves. The purpose is to use bluestem grass to the best advantage in producing beef. Two of the lots were fed out at the close of the first season's: grazing And the other three ...
  • Pickett, A.G.; Weber, A.D. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1947)
    Many authorities and successful beef cattle producers have held the belief that the safest long-time beef production system was one that kept the producer in business 12 months of the year. This, of course, means ...
  • Weber, A.D. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1946)
    The primary purpose of this experiment was to test the value of prairie hay in a ration for wintering yearling steers. The quantity of prairie hay available for cattle feeding in Kansas has increased greatly in recent years ...
  • Shi, Jishu N.; Kielian, T.L.; Chengappa, M. M.; Smith, J.E.; Blecha, Frank; Dritz, Steven S.; Goodband, Robert D.; Nelssen, Jim L.; Tokach, Michael D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1994)
    Three experiments, using 344 pigs, were conducted to evaluate the influence of β-glucan (MacroGard™-S) on neutrophil and macrophage function, resistance to Streptococcus suis challenge, and growth performance in weanling ...
  • Timm, R.R.; Hachmeister, K.A.; Sammel, L.M.; Rasor, A.E.; Unruh, John A.; Stroda, Sally L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2001)
    Aging loin strip, bottom, and eye of round steaks for 21 days decreased Warner- Bratzler Shear (WBS) values (increased tenderness). For the top round, aged semimembranosus muscle steaks tended to have lower WBS values ...
  • Hollis, Larry C.; Brouk, Michael J. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2009)
    Objectives of this study were to investigate the possible effects of heat stress on calf growth and the development of active immunity. Eighteen heifer calves born between July 21 and August 24, 2008, were housed in ...
  • Bolte, K.; Dhuyvetter, Kevin C.; Schroeder, Ted C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2008)
    The National Animal Identification System (NAIS) is a federal-level voluntary program that uses a streamlined information system designed to help animal health officials and producers respond to animal health threats in a ...
  • Loughmiller, J.A.; Spire, M.F.; Fenwick, B.W.; Hogge, S.; Foster, J.; Dritz, Steven S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1999)
    An acute Actinobacillus pleuropneumonia challenge was used to study changes in rectal and radiant surface temperatures over 18 h. From 3.5 to 15 h after challenge, rectal temperatures were elevated in challenged pigs ...
  • Warren, J.H.; Blum, J.; Schalles, R.R.; Kiracofe, G.; Henry, K.; Hultine, V. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1976)
    Severa1 reproductive traits of yearling Polled Hereford bulls were evaluated during and immediately after a 140-day feeding test. Results indicate that concentration of sperm and percentages of live sperm are heritable ...
