  • Zhang, C.; Li, D.; Nelssen, Jim L.; Davis, Duane L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1990)
    We fed gilts diets containing either additional folic acid throughout gestation (1.5 g/ton, 4.5 lb/gilt daily), additional riboflavin (100 mg/gilt daily) from d 4 to 10 of gestation, both folic acid and riboflavin, or ...
  • Davis, Duane L.; Stevenson, Jeffrey S.; Pollmann, D.S.; Allee, G.L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1984)
    Effects of estrous synchronization and flushing on litter size in gilts were compared on two farms. Estrus in gilts was synchronized with altrenogest for 14 days or estrous cycles were left unaltered (control group). ...
  • Davis, Duane L.; Zhang, Z.; Stevenson, Jeffrey S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1988)
    We tested the effects of feeding 4 or 7.4 lb of a complete gestation diet to gilts during days 0 to 2 or 3 to 10 after first detected estrus (day 0) and mating. There was a tendency (P = .11) for the 7.4 lb/day treatment ...
  • Pretzer, D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1982)
    Survival in the beef cattle business for the next year or so will depend on doing little things well, says Don Pretzer, extension farm management specialist at Kansas State. "Doing enough little things right will add ...
  • Turlington, L.M.; Corah, L.R.; Allen, Dell M.; Nelssen, Jim L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1986)
    Determination of backfat thickness and loin-eye area in swine is essential for continued genetic progress, and ultimately, pork product acceptance. Leaner, faster growing boars and gilts must be provided by seedstock ...
  • Laudert, S.B. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1989)
    Feedlot cattle from 1,687 pens totaling 290,183 head were evaluated at slaughter for the presence of liver flukes. Overall, 4.92% of the cattle were found to be infected. Only 15.2% of all pens of cattle were found to ...
  • Tiemann, D.G.; Bolsen, K.K.; Clark, D.H.; Kezar, W. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1994)
    Six Pioneer corn hybrids were grown in Kansas and four of the six hybrids within three locations in Utah. The Utah hybrids were harvested between the one-quarter and one-half milk line stages of kernel maturity, whereas ...
  • Johnson, Sandra K.; Bolte, J.W.; Jaeger, John R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010)
    Routinely achieving pregnancy rates greater than 50% with fixed-time artificial insemination (AI) in heifers has been difficult. The Beef Reproduction Task Force recently added the intravaginal progesterone-releasing ...
  • Presley, DeAnn R.; Sindelar, Aaron J.; Buckley, Meghan E.; Mengel, David B. (2012)
    Grain sorghum [Sorghum bicolor (L.) Moench] is an important grain crop grown in both highly productive and marginal areas in the central Great Plains because of the crop’s ability to utilize the erratic precipitation ...
  • Anandhi, Aavudai; Perumal, Sriram; Gowda, Prasanna H.; Knapp, Mary C.; Hutchinson, Stacy L.; Harrington, John A., Jr.; Murray, Leigh W.; Kirkham, Mary B.; Rice, Charles W. (2013)
    Frost indices such as number of frost days (nFDs), number of frost-free days (nFFDs), last spring freeze (LSF), first fall freeze (FFF), and growing-season length (GSL) were calculated using daily minimum air temperature ...
  • Call, Edward P. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1993)
    The current economic situation dictates that dairy producers use all available tools and resources to maximize efficiency. Yearly milk yield is the most reliable predictor of profitability. Because the genetic base ...
  • Dickerson, J.T.; Bolsen, K.K.; Brent, B.E.; Lin, C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1992)
    Corn and forage sorghum silages were stored in small (simulated), farm-scale, bunker silos for 180 days, and dry matter (DM) and organic matter (OM) losses; fermentation characteristics; and temperatures were measured at ...
  • Holthaus, D.L.; Brent, B.E.; Pfaff, L.; Bolsen, K.K.; Young, Matthew A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1995)
    The top 3 ft of silage from 127 horizontal silos was sampled at three locations across the width of the silo during a 4-year period (1990 through 1993). Ninety-six percent of the silages were either corn or forage ...
  • Dickerson, J.T.; Ashbell, G.; Bolsen, K.K.; Brent, B.E.; Pfaff, L.; Niwa, Y. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1992)
    The top 3 ft. of silage from each of 30 horizontal silos in western Kansas was sampled at three locations across the width of the silo for 2 consecutive years (1990 and 1991). Ninety-five percent of the silages were ...
  • Murphy, James P. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1988)
    Low investment farrowing facilities can be divided into three categories, depending on the level of investment. At the lowest investment level, an individual farrowing shelter that has no floor is utilized. The shelter ...
  • Musser, R.E.; Kerr, C.A.; Richert, B.T.; Goodband, Robert D.; Nelssen, Jim L.; Tokach, Michael D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1993)
    A total of 150 pigs was used to evaluate the effects of corn with different crude protein content on growth performance of finishing pigs. Our objective was to determine if low protein corn might result in poorer pig ...
  • Hansen, J.A.; Thaler, R.C.; Goodband, Robert D.; Nelssen, Jim L.; Hines, Robert H.; Hancock, Joe D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1990)
    Two growth studies were conducted to determine the effects of substituting lower test-weight sorghum (35 lb/bu as LOW or 45 lb/bu as MED) for normal test-weight sorghum (55 lb/bu NORM), in growing and finishing swine diets. ...
  • Koch, B.A.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1969)
