  • Stika, J.F.; Unruh, John A.; Kropf, Donald H.; Hunt, Melvin C.; Goodband, Robert D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-02-25)
    Supplementing medium-lean genotype pigs with supranutritional concentrations of dietary vitamin E (91 IU d-a-tocopheryl acetate/lb of feed) for as long as 70 d during the finishing phase was not effective in improving swine ...
  • Harborth, K.W.; Llewellyn, Donald A.; Marston, T.T. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-08-02)
    Ninety-two pregnant, mature, spring-calving cows grazing low-quality tallgrass-prairie were used to determine if early weaning of calves reduces the supplementation cost during the subsequent winter. Calves were weaned ...
  • Gelso, Brett R.; Peterson, Jeffrey M. (2013-07-09)
    This article examines the relationships between different ethical attitudes toward environmental quality and the ‘use’ values obtained from the environment. In particular, we consider individuals who have duty-based ethical ...
  • Harner, Joseph P.; Smith, J.F.; Brouk, Michael J. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-11-29)
    A model was developed to evaluate the impact of facilities on cow time budgets. The model suggests that in inadequate facilities overcrowding of the facility by 25% or more resulted because occupancy rate exceeded 100%. ...
  • Llewellyn, Donald A.; Gray, B.T.; Marston, T.T.; Bandyk, C.A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-08-03)
    We evaluated the effect of providing a liquid, high-protein supplement during the fall grazing period on beef cow and calf performance. Mature, pregnant, spring-calving cows (n=122) grazing native range were assigned to ...
  • Clary, E.M.; Brandt, Robert T., Jr.; Pope, Ronald V. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-11-02)
    One hundred ninety-two crossbred steers were used in a 2 x 4 factorially arranged experiment to study the effects of including fat and ionophores in finishing rations. Main effects were level of supplemental fat (0 or ...
  • Brandt, Robert T., Jr.; Pope, Ronald V. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-10-14)
    To evaluate effects and potential interaction of supplemental fat (0 to 4% tallow) and monensin (0, 20, 40 g/ton) in a corn-based finishing diet, 96 Continental crossbred steers (860 lb) were used in a 2×3 factorially ...
  • Allee, G.L.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-05-07)
    One hundred forty pigs averaging 28 pounds were fed a corn-soybean meal diet to study the influence of fat level and calorie:protein (C:P) ratio on the performance and carcass composition. With a constant C:P ratio, fat ...
  • Allee, G.L.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-05-07)
    One hundred twenty-eight pigs averaging 44 pounds were used to determine the influence of level of dietary fat and calorie:protein ratio on the performance of young pigs. Daily gains by pigs fed diets containing 0, 3, 6, ...
  • Allee, G.L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-05-07)
    The influence of feeding frequency on performance and nitrogen metabolism in gestating swine was studied by feeding 4 pounds daily, 8 pounds every other day, or 12 pounds every third day. All animals were maintained in dry ...
  • Singh, A.R.; Schalles, R.R.; Smith, W.H.; Kessler, F.B. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-03-17)
    The ability of beef cows to produce heavy, vigorous and good quality calves every year is one of their most important economic traits. Feeding practices have been reported to influence average daily gain (ADG) and ...
  • DeRouchey, Joel M.; Tokach, Michael D.; Goodband, Robert D.; Nelssen, Jim L.; Dritz, Steven S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2009-10-29)
    A total of 239 sows (PIC C-22) were used in this experiment. Sows were randomly allotted to one of the two experimental treatments approximately 5 days before their expected farrowing date. Control sows did not receive any ...
  • Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-04-30)
    Yorkshire pigs weaned at 5 to 6 weeks and averaging 25 lb were used to determine effects of diets with increased fiber from ground oats, wheat bran, alfalfa meal, or dried beet pulp on performance and diarrhea. The basal ...
  • Schalles, R.R.; McKee, M.; Evans, J.; Davis, Duane L.; Pitts, C.W. Jr. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-03-08)
    Controlling flies significantly decreased incidence of pinkeye in cattle on native Flint Hill range. There was no difference in the average weaning weight of groups sprayed or not sprayed. However individuals severely ...
  • Smith, J.F.; Harner, Joseph P.; Brouk, Michael J. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-12-10)
    A trial was conducted during the summer of 2000 to evaluate the effect of freestall building orientation—east-west vs. northsouth— on respiration rates of lactating dairy cows, temperature-humidity index (THI) in the ...
  • Beaty, J.L.; Cochran, R.C.; Lintzenich, B.A.; Vanzant, E.S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-10-15)
    Fifteen ruminally cannulated beef steers were used in a pasture supplementation experiment to determine the effects of frequency of energy supplementation on intake and digestion of tallgrass prairie forage during early ...
  • Beaty, J.L.; Cochran, R.C.; Lintzenich, B.A.; Vanzant, E.S.; Morrill, J.L.; Brandt, Robert T., Jr.; Johnson, D.E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-10-05)
    Eight ruminally cannulated steers were used to determine digestion characteristics of soybean meal/sorghum grain supplements containing 12%, 20%, 30%, or 39% crude protein (CP) fed either daily (7X) or three times ...
  • Kats, L.J.; Tokach, Michael D.; Nelssen, Jim L.; Goodband, Robert D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-02-11)
    A 25 d growth trial utilizing 198 pigs was conducted to determine the influence of fumaric acid and calcium formate on starter pig performance. At weaning (19 d of age and 11.9 lb), pigs were blocked by weight and ...
  • Naab, J.B.; Boote, K.J.; Prasad, P. V. Vara; Seini, S.S.; Jones, J.W. (2011-10-07)
