  • Wallace, J.O.; Miller, W.F.; Johnson, B.J.; Reinhardt, Christopher D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2007)
    Feeding newly arrived cattle is commonly characterized by a few days of feeding longstemmed hay followed by a series of step-up diets, wherein concentrate levels are increased to promote ruminal adaptation to a highconcentrate ...
  • Koch, B.A. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1964)
    Limiting daily feed intake during the last half of the growing-finishing period is a possible way to improve carcass characteristics of market pigs. A review of limited feeding trials conducted here and elsewhere leads to ...
  • Aubel, C.E. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1949)
    To produce swine profitably, it is necessary to make use of forage crops. This practice not only saves grain, but contributes to the general health of the hogs. Since swine feeders are seeking new and cheaper methods ...
  • Greenwood, H.; Löest, C.A.; Titgemeyer, Evan C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1999)
    Ruminally cannulated Holstein steers were used in three nitrogen balance experiments to determine the sequence of limiting amino acids for growing steers fed soybean hull-based diets. The steers in all experiments were ...
  • Greenwood, R.H.; Titgemeyer, Evan C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2000)
    A study was conducted to determine the limiting amino acids for cattle fed soybean hullbased diets. Ruminally cannulated Holstein steers (335 lb) were maintained in metabolism crates, fed the same basal diet (73% ...
  • Eckert, T.E.; Allee, G.L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1973)
    Three growth trials and two nitrogen retention trials were conducted with 118 growing pigs to determine the limiting amino acids in milo. Lysine supplementation of the basal milo diet markedly improved daily gain, feed ...
  • Thulin, A.J.; Allee, G.L.; Pollman, D.S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1984)
    Two 4 x 4 Latin square designs were used with 16 gilts at 10 mo of age and weighing 341 lb (gravid) and 301 lb (nongravid) to determine the limiting nitrogenous factors in sorghum grain protein for adult gravid (70th day ...
  • Hsu, A.; Allee, G.L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1980)
    Seventy-two crossbred pigs averaging 23.5 lb initially and 12 crossbred barrows averaging 31.5 lb initially were used to study the limiting order of amino acids in ALPC for growing pigs in a feeding trial and a nitrogen ...
  • Main, R.G.; Tokach, Michael D.; Goodband, Robert D.; Nelssen, Jim L.; Dritz, Steven S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2002)
    Two studies were conducted to measure the biologic and economic effects of weaning age in a three-site production system. Wean-to-finish growth and financial performance improved linearly as weaning age increased up ...
  • Kim, Dongwon; Jeannotte, Richard; Welti, Ruth; Bockus, William W. (2013)
    Lipid profiles in wheat leaves and the effects of tan spot on the profiles were quantified by mass spectrometry. Inoculation with Pyrenophora tritici-repentis significantly reduced the amount of leaf lipids, including the ...
  • Estrada-Munoz, R.; Boyle, Elizabeth A. E.; Marsden, James L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1997)
    Liquid smoke (LS) reduce d Escherichia coli O157:H7 counts in inoculated beef trimmings and ground beef patties. The counts were reduced (P<.05) by .5 log 10 cfu/g immediately after beef trimmings were treated with 8% LS ...
  • 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 ...
