  • Waggoner, A.W.; Brethour, J.R.; Dikeman, Michael E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1989)
    Eighty-seven 3/8 Simmental x 5/8 Hereford heifers calved at 2 years of age and were designated as Single-Calf-Heifers (SCH). Twenty-six heifer mates that did not calve were designated as 2-year-old open heifers (2-OH), ...
  • Dikeman, Michael E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1979)
    Different crossbred (X) cattle types were evaluated for growth, feed efficiency, carcass and meat traits. Steers were studied from mating Angus (A), Hereford (H), Brahman (B), Sahiwal (S), Pinzgauer (P), and Tarentaise (T) ...
  • Titgemeyer, Evan C.; Johnson, B.J.; Shirley, John E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2004)
    We evaluated the effect of supplementing typical dairy diets with yeast and fibrolytic enzymes on dairy cow performance. Twentyfour Holstein cows were used to evaluate the effects of yeast (Procreatin-7, a live culture ...
  • Stanley, T.A.; Cochran, R.C.; Harmon, D.L.; Vanzant, E.S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1991)
    Four, ruminally cannulated, Hereford × Angus cows were used to study factors associated with feed intake patterns around parturition. Feed intake during the final trimester of gestation was relatively stable, in spite ...
  • Stevenson, Jeffrey S. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1987)
    The economic climate in the dairy industry requires producers to operate efficiently to remain competitive. Attention to details and understanding of reproduction, metabolism, digestive functions, milk secretion, and all ...
  • Löest, C.A.; Coetzer, C.M.; Titgemeyer, Evan C.; Drouillard, James S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2002)
    Heifers (756 lb, 312 head) were used in a finishing study to evaluate the effects of peroxide-treated feather meal on animal performance and carcass characteristics. Diets contained 3.0% of peroxide-treated or untreated ...
  • Skelsey, Peter; With, Kimberly A.; Garrett, Karen A. (2013)
    Given the wide range of scales and mechanisms by which pest or disease agents disperse, it is unclear whether there might exist a general relationship between scale of host heterogeneity and spatial spread that could be ...
  • Gibson, Michael W.; Sajid, Alavi (2013)
    Pet foods contain a multitude of ingredients as they must satisfy all of a pet’s daily nutritional requirements, including carbohydrates, protein, fat, and micronutrients. Processing dry pet foods typically involves baking ...
  • Woodworth, J.C.; James, B.W.; Webster, M.J.; Real, D.E.; DeRouchey, Joel M.; Nelssen, Jim L.; Tokach, Michael D.; Goodband, Robert D.; Dritz, Steven S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2000)
    Two studies were conducted to evaluate the effects of spray-dried blood meal and its pH on nursery pig performance. Spray-dried blood meal pH decreases as storage time increases prior to spray drying. In Exp. 1, addition ...
  • Opit, G. P.; Phillips, Thomas W.; Aikins, Michael J.; Hasan, M. M. (2012)
    Phosphine gas, or hydrogen phosphide (PH[subscript 3]), is the most common insecticide applied to durable stored products worldwide and is routinely used in the United States for treatment of bulk-stored cereal grains and ...
  • Trotter, M.; Allee, G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1979)
    We used 117 crossbred pigs and 260 male White Leghorn chicks to determine the availability of phosphorus in high-moisture sorghum grain treated with propionic acid or stored in an oxygen limiting structure, and in field-dried ...
  • Allee, G.L.; Koch, B.A.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1974)
    To determine the minimal level of supplemental phosphorus required by growing pig, ninety pigs averaging 34 pounds were randomly assigned from outcome groups to 18 pens representing three replications of six dietary ...
  • Hastad, C.W.; Tokach, Michael D.; Goodband, Robert D.; Nelssen, Jim L.; DeRouchey, Joel M.; Dritz, Steven S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2002)
    We conducted three experiments to identify available phosphorus (aP) requirements of pigs reared in commercial facilities. In a pilot study (Exp. 1), 600 gilts (PIC, initially 95.2 lb) were randomly allotted to a low or ...
  • Boland, Michael A.; Foster, K.A.; Preckel, P.V. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1998)
    Soil phosphorus levels have increased as swine production has become concentrated. Phosphorus-based manure management regulations for land application have been proposed by policy makers. The objective of this research ...
  • Nechols, James R. (1988)
    The squash bug, Anasa tristis DeGeer, undergoes a reproductive diapause from late summer to spring in northeastern Kansas. In the laboratory, diapause was induced in 100% of adult females reared under photoperiods shorter ...
  • Cox, R.F. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1947)
    In several years of experimental studies of physical balance as a factor in determining the value of lamb fattening rations, more than 2000 lambs have been fed, and a wide variety of feeds have been employed. The ...
