  • Lamb, G.C.; Lynch, J.M.; Miller, B.L.; Grieger, David M.; Stevenson, Jeffrey S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1997)
    Six treatment s were initiated approximately 15 days after calving: 1) calf was weaned permanently from its dam (calf weaned; CW); 2) calf was present continuously with its dam but contact with the udder was prohibited ...
  • Lamb, G.C.; Thompson, K. E.; Heldt, J.S.; Löest, C.A.; Stevenson, Jeffrey S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1998)
    Three treatments were initiated at approximately 15 days after calving and continued for 4 weeks: 1) cows were suckled ad libitum by their calves (calf present [CP]); 2) calves were present but nonsuckling 24 hr/day and ...
  • Bolsen, K.K.; Fink, G.; Riley, Jack G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1975)
    Four finishing rations evaluated in the l02-day trial were: (1) unprocessed (Whole) milage, (2) processed (rolled) silage, (3) processed milage plus high moisture milo and (4) high-moisture milo plus chopped hay. ...
  • Bolsen, K.; Corah, L.; Grimes, C.; Riley, Jack G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1976)
    Ninety-six heifer calves were used to compare four silage combinations: (1) 100% milo stover, (2) 67% milo stover and 33% forage sorghum, (3) 33% milo stover and 67% forage sorghum and (4) 100% forage sorghum. Each ...
  • Bolsen, K.K.; Boyett, G.; Riley, Jack G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1975)
    Seventy-two heifer calves were used in a 98-day trial to evaluate four rations: (1) forage sorghum silage plus soybean meal, (2) milo stover pellets plus soybean meal, (3) milo stover silage plus soybean meal and (4) ...
  • Bolsen, K.K.; Boyett, G.; Riley, Jack G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1974)
    Five rations (involving 4 forage treatments) were compared: (1) forage sorghum silage, (2) forage sorghum silage ensiled with organic acids , (3) milo stover pellets, (4) milo stover silage and (5) milo stover silage ...
  • Bolsen, K.; Riley, Jack G.; Grimes, C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1977)
    Ninety heifer calves were used to compare six rations containing various combinations of milo stover, forage sorghum and alfalfa silages. In the 96-day trial, heifers fed 100% forage sorghum silage outperformed heifers ...
  • Bolsen, K.; Oltjen, J.; Ilg, H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1978)
    Milo stover silage, baled silo stover or forage sorghum silage was fed in 10, 12, or 14% protein rations to 120 calves in a 95-day growing trial, December 9, 1976, to March 14, 1977. Calves fed forage sorghum silage ...
  • Bolsen, K.; Oltjen, J.; Ilg, H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1979)
    Milo stover silage, prairie hay or forage sorghum silage was fed in rations containing 10, 12 or 14% protein from soybean meal (SBM) or 12% protein from urea; 100 heifers were fed in the 78-day growing trial (November 11, ...
  • Clary, F.G.; Brent, B.E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1970)
    Earlier experiments have shown that cattle may perform differently at different Kansas locations. Feeds from four locations (Manhattan, Mound Valley, Colby, and Garden City) were analyzed for several minerals to see if ...
  • Harbers, L.H.; Umoh, J.E.; Raiten, D.A.; Chaffin, V.K. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1978)
    Handclipped and esophageal samples of burned and control native bluestem pastures were taken monthly. Burning increased phosphorus (P) and magnesium (Mg) and decreased iron (Fe). These studies indicate that burned and ...
  • Smith, E.F.; Riley, Jack G.; Schalles, R.R.; Graber, Ronald W.; Owensby, Clenton E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1985)
    Eighty steers, primarily of British breeding, were allotted to one of four treatments and maintained on native bluestem pastures from January 11, 1984 to October 2, 1984. Steers received either chlortetracycline or Rumensin®, ...
  • Harbers, L.H.; Unoh, J.E.; Sapienza, D.A.; Brent, B.E.; Peischel, H.A.; Whitney, J.D.; Smith, E.F. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1979)
    This report summarizes monthly mineral contents of burned and control native bluestem pastures determined with samples from fisulated steers. Burning decreases calcium (Ca), potassium (K), and iron (Fe), and slightly decreases ...
  • Nichols, David A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1987)
    Swine have a great ability to grow and reproduce in a variety of environments and facilities. This ability is documented by profitable production in both the most elaborate and the most simple facilities. Efficiency and ...
  • Traylor, S.L.; Behnke, Keith C.; Stark, C.R.; Hines, Robert H.; Hancock, Joe D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1994)
    Two experiments were conducted to determine the effects of mix time on diet uniformity and growth performance of nursery and finishing pigs. For Exp. 1, 120 weanling pigs (average initial body wt of 12.1 lb) were used in ...
  • Herrman, T.; Behnke, Keith C.; Loughin, T. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1995)
    Results of this study suggest that carbadox was incorporated uniformly in the feed by mixing. However, the two medicated feed additives containing sulfamethazine did not incorporate uniformly in the feed. The causal mechanism ...
  • Khajuria, Chitvan; Wang, Haiyan; Liu, Xuming; Wheeler, Shanda; Reese, John C.; El Bouhssini, Mustapha; Whitworth, R. Jeffery; Chen, Ming-Shun (2013)
