  • Domenghini, Jacob C.; Bremer, Dale J.; Fry, Jack D.; Davis, Gregory L. (2013)
    Municipalities often restrict irrigation of urban landscapes, causing plants to experience drought stress. Few data are available regarding drought resistance of non-turfgrass landscape species. This study evaluated the ...
  • Pulley, S.L.; Mellieon, H.I. Jr.; Stevenson, Jeffrey S. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2011)
    The objective of this research was to increase the proportion of cows with at least 1 functional corpus luteum (CL) and elevated progesterone at the onset of the timed artificial insemination (TAI) program. Postpartum ...
  • Plunkett, S.S.; Stevenson, Jeffrey S.; Call, Edward P. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1984)
    Two experiments were conducted in 17 dairy herds in NE Kansas to determine the effectiveness of prostaglandin F2α (PGF) for reducing intervals to conception for cows with silent or unobserved estrus. Cows that failed to ...
  • Davis, Duane L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1981)
    Alternate groups of sows were synchronized, with prostaglandin, to farrow within a certain time or to serve as controls. The objective was to determine if baby-pig survival or litter-weaning weight would be improved by ...
  • Ames, D.R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1979)
    Adjusting feedlot rations to match the thermal environment can reduce costs of gains. Adjusting protein content of rations does not change average daily gain but it improves protein efficiency.
  • Ames, D.R.; Willms, C.L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1977)
    A summer feedlot trial indicates that protein can be removed from finishing rations in proportion to magnitude of heat stress without causing a decline in average daily lain. Cattle consumed .13 kg/hd/day (.30 lb) less ...
  • Jensen, A.H.; Koch, B.A. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1965)
    The value of a feed protein is determined by its content of available essential amino acids. For example, in relation to the pigs’ needs, corn and milo proteins are definitely deficient in the amino acid lysine. Selection ...
  • Shiawoya, E.L.; Harbers, L.H.; Evans, J.D.; McKee, R.M (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1973)
    Pregnant Hereford and Angus cows wintered on native bluestem pasture were used to compare soybean-meal and Starea-containing blocks and protein supplements. Cow weight changes were similar with both supplements. Consumption ...
  • Allee, G.L.; Koch, B.A.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1975)
    Seventy-two pigs, 30 days old averaging 17 pounds initially, were used to evaluate lysine additions to 16 and 18 percent protein fortified corn-soybean meal diets. Adding 0.1% or 0.2% L-lysine to the 16% protein diet ...
  • McKee, M.; Schalles, R.R.; Zoellner, K.O. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1974)
    Three trials with Angus, Hereford, and Shorthorn bulls produced in the University teaching herd were conducted to determine effects of 10, 12, or 14% calculated crude protein levels in grain rations. In trial 1, the 10% ...
  • Thompson, W.; Riley, Jack G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1979)
    Ration erode protein levels of 9%, 11%, 15%, 12 declining to 10.5% and 13% declining to 11% and finally to 9% were fed with and without Monensin. Steers fed 9% protein continuously gained the least and were the least ...
  • Hines, Robert H.; Koch, B.A.; Nichols, David A.; Turlington, L.M.; Goodband, Robert D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1987)
    Eighty barrows and 80 gilts were fed diets containing four crude protein levels (16, 15, 14, and 13%) from approximately 115 lb to a market weight of 230-235 lb. Barrows and gilts were fed separately to determine their ...
  • Wessels, R.H.; Titgemeyer, Evan C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1997)
    Seven steers (513 lb) were used in an experiment to investigate optimal levels and sources of protein in diets limit-fed to allow gain of 2.2 lb/day. Treatments were: a negative-control diet (urea; supplemented, 11.7% ...
  • Koch, B.A.; Allee, G.L.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1974)
    Using. sixty barrows and gilts, we evaluated five protein sequences for finishing swine. Pigs fed rations containing 16% protein until they weighed 140 lbs., then 12% protein until they weighed 190 lbs., and there after ...
  • Swanson, J.A.; Hancock, Joe D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1990)
    One hundred eighty pigs (avg wt of 21.11b) were used in an experiment to determine if a fermentation product improves performance and reduces last rib fat thickness in pigs when added to a low-protein diet regimen. ...
  • McKee, M.; Kimole, K.; Corah, L.R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1978)
    Cows in mid-to-late gestation gained significantly (P<.05) more while grazing milo stover supplemented on alternative days with 4 lbs. per head of a natural protein than cows with no protein supplement. Although protein ...
  • Fike, G.D.; Simms, D.D.; Cochran, R.C.; Brandt, Robert T., Jr.; Vanzant, E.S.; Kuhl, G.L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1993)
    Sixteen ruminally fistulated steers (avg wt. = 998 lb) were used in a 30-day conventional digestion trial to examine the effects of protein supplementation on intake and digestion of ammoniated wheat straw. Steers ...
  • Fike, G.D.; Simms, D.D.; Brandt, Robert T., Jr.; Cochran, R.C.; Vanzant, E.S.; Kuhl, G.L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1993)
    Mature, crossbred beef cows (n = 87 in 1990-91, n = 84 in 1991-1992) were used to determine the effects of protein supplementation to cows fed ammoniated wheat straw during late gestation. Treatments included: 1) Control ...
  • Shiawoya, E.L.; Harbers, L.H.; Bolsen, K.K.; Riley, Jack G.; Dikeman, Michael E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1974)
    Protein supplements composed of either soybean meal, a combination of soybean meal and urea, or milo Starea improved gain 5% and feed efficiency 4% over supplements of either urea or wheat Starea (P<.25). Cost of gain ...
  • Richardson, D.; Akram, M. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1964)
    Opinion differs on the value of single or mixed sources of added protein in beef rations. This experiment was to determine the percentage total nitrogen and protein nitrogen present in rumen ingesta of steers fed a single ...
