  • 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)
    The new K-State facilities for growing-finishing swine seemed ideal to re-evaluate various antibiotics as low-level feed additives. The first trial reported here was with the first pigs fed in the new barn. They also were ...
  • Mavromichalis, I.; Kim, I.H.; Burnham, L.L.; Rantanen, M.M.; Hines, Robert H.; Hancock, Joe D.; Kropf, Donald H.; Behnke, Keith C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1995)
    Partially omitting (up to 66 %) the supplemental inorganic phosphorus (P) source from a late-finishing (190 to 250 lb) diet resulted in slightly greater ADG and backfat thickness, which probably resulted from the greater ...
  • Peters, C.W.; Corah, L.R.; Cochran, R.C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1993)
    Feeding rumen-escape lipid or soybean oil in a range supplement to beef cow resulted in elevated blood cholesterol and enhanced luteinizing hormone (LH) release compared to a control (milo and soybean meal) ...
  • Stevenson, Jeffrey S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2009)
    In Experiment 1, lactating dairy cows (n = 1,230) in 6 herds were treated with 2 injections of prostaglandin F2α (PGF2α) 14 days apart (Presynch), with the second injection administered 12 to 14 days before the onset of a ...
  • Pollmann, D.S.; Allee, G.A.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1982)
    A total of 943 newly weaned (18 to 30 days of age) pigs were used in five trials to evaluate the addition of lysine and dried whey in starter diets. The results of these studies show that the lysine requirement is 1.2 to ...
  • Elwakeel, E.A.; Amachawadi, R.G.; Nour, A.M.; Nassar, M.E.; Nagaraja, T. G.; Titgemeyer, Evan C. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010)
    Three experiments were conducted to characterize lysine fermentation by Fusobacterium necrophorum, a ruminal bacterium that is known to degrade amino acids. In Experiment 1, 7 strains of Fusobacterium necrophorum were ...
  • Koch, B.A.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1969)
    The protein level and protein quality of swine rations consisting primarily of grain can be changed by adding either protein like soybean meal or individual amino acids like lysine. Protein requirements are based on ...
  • Allee, G.L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1973)
    Four experiments involving 311 finishing pigs (112 to 220 pounds) were conducted to determine the minimum level of soybean meal necessary to supply all essential amino acids except lysine that are deficient in milo or ...
