  • Richert, B.T.; Goodband, Robert D.; Tokach, Michael D.; Nelssen, Jim L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1995)
    Mammary secretory tissue from six (three each of parity 1 and 2) lactating sows (d 10 to 17 of lactation) was obtained via biopsy for in vitro incubation to determine CO2 production fr01TI individual branched chain amino ...
  • Löest, C.A.; Armendariz, C.K.; Titgemeyer, Evan C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2000)
    An in vitro study was conducted to evaluate the degradation of betaine sources by rumen microbes. Five sources of betaine (anhydrous betaine, betaine-HCl, feed-grade betaine, lipidcoated betaine, and concentrated ...
  • Umoh, J.E.; Harbers, L.H.; Smith, E.F.; Whitney, J.; Boggs, Don (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1977)
    We used an in vitro digestibility technique to determine the nutritive value of predominately native bluestem forage on burned and nonburned Flint Hills pastures. We also collected forage samples via esophageal fistulas ...
  • Healy, B.J.; Bramel-Cox, P.J.; Hines, Robert H.; Hancock, Joe D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1993)
    Nutritional value of eight sorghum hybrids, resulting from matings of four male lines with two male-sterile lines, was determined. The male lines were two sorghums with consistently high in vitro digestibility (High-digestibility ...
  • Sonon, R.N. Jr.; Bolsen, K.K.; Brent, B.E.; Harbers, L.H.; Boyer, John E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1994)
    Eleven forage sorghum cultivars and one grain sorghum hybrid were used to determine the effect of individual plant parts on in vitro dry matter digestibility (IVDMD) of sorghum silage. IVDMD was highest for the head ...
  • Abdelgadir, I.E.O.; Cochran, R.C.; Vanzant, E.S.; Titgemeyer, Evan C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1996)
    Ruminal degradation of alfalfa and prairie hay protein was estimated using a proteolytic enzyme from Streptomyces griseus with or without pretreatment with cellulase or a broad spectrum carbohydrase (driselase). Estimates ...
  • Elwakeel, E.A.; Johnson, B.J.; Titgemeyer, Evan C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2004)
    Fermentations were conducted to identify enzyme activities and amounts that would optimize digestion of high-fiber feed ingredients (soybean hulls, alfalfa, corn silage, and corn gluten feed). In general, adding enzymes ...
  • Call, Edward P. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1989)
    The rate of involution of the bovine uterus is remarkable. By 20 days after calving, tissue sloughing and hemorrhaging have ceased, and the size of the uterus has been reduced by more than 80%. By 40 days, the uterus has ...
  • Schoneweis, D.A.; Allee, G.L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1977)
    The experiment suggests that a primary need of the neonatal pig is iron and that hematinics such as cobalt and liver extract are of little value if iron is insufficient.
  • Schoneweis, D.A.; Allee, G.L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1977)
    Giving an iron iron dextran-gentamycin combination to young pigs had no advantages over giving them iron dextran alone, as measured by hemoglobin levels, packed cell volumes, or weight (when 28 days old).
  • Kube, J.C.; Shirley, John E.; Frantz, K.D. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1986)
    Springing heifers and dry cows were introduced to a computer feeder either 2 wk before their estimated freshening date or at calving. There was no significant difference in milk production, percentage milk fat, percentage ...
  • Trible, B.R.; Rowland, Raymond R. R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2011)
    Understanding the transmission of porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome virus (PRRSV) is important for developing methods to control and eliminate the virus. In this study, 2 similar experiments were performed ...
  • Eborn, D.R.; Blair, E.E.; Grieger, David M. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2011)
    The EAZI-BREED CIDR is commonly used in estrous synchronization protocols for both beef heifers and cows. The label calls for insertion of a progesterone-impregnated controlled internal drug release (CIDR) for 7 consecutive ...
  • Koch, B.A.; Allee, G.L.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1975)
    Increasing the alfalfa meal to 30% in a finishing pig diet did not significantly reduce average daily gain when tallow was also added to maintain the caloric density of the ration. Digestibility of dry matter and gross ...
  • Linneen, S.K.; Tokach, Michael D.; DeRouchey, Joel M.; Goodband, Robert D.; Nelssen, Jim L.; Dritz, Steven S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2006)
    Two studies were conducted to test the effect of isoleucine amount and source on nursery pig performance. In Exp. 1, a total of 194 pigs were used in a 10-d study in a research facility to test the effects of isoleucine ...
  • Schneider, J.D.; Nelssen, Jim L.; Tokach, Michael D.; Goodband, Robert D.; DeRouchey, Joel M.; Dritz, Steven S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2005)
    A total of 75 lactating sows were used in a study to determine whether the ratio of total sulfur amino acid (TSAA) to lysine calculated from the NRC (1998) is adequate for lactating sows. Low and high sulfur amino acid ...
  • Peterson, Hikaru H.; Bernard, John C.; Fox, Sean; Peterson, Jeffrey M. (2013)
    Adoption of country-of-origin-labeling (COOL) has important implications for U.S. food exports. We assess the impact of COOL on imported rice and pork for Japanese female consumers using an auction experiment. In a first ...
  • Peterson, Hikaru H.; Burbidge, Linda D. (2012)
    Analysis of survey data indicates that Japanese consumers discount their willingness to pay for U.S. beef and pork relative to that of domestic products, but that the discounts have declined from 2006 to 2009. The discounts ...
