  • 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 ...
  • Hartadi, H.; Harbers, L.; Shirley, John E.; Bolsen, K. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1991)
    Whole-plant silage from intercropped grain sorghum and Williams 82 soybean was compared to corn silage in a mixed diet for mid-lactation dairy cows. Cows fed the grain sorghum-soybean silage yielded 45.13 lb and those ...
  • Moyer, W.A.; Baker, F.H.; Folse, D.S.; Smith, E.F.; Cox, R.F. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1955)
    The first experiment was conducted during the winter of 1953-54 with 60 heifer calves. The heifers were raised near Snyder, Texas, and delivered to Manhattan .December 1, 1953. The heifers were assigned December17, 1953, ...
  • Allee, G.L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1978)
    We used 96 crossbred pigs averaging 8.3 kg (19.3 lbs.) to compare performances with sorghum, corn, or wheat with 0 or 4% added fat (tallow). The trial ended when pigs averaged approximately 220 pounds. Grain source (sorghum, ...
  • Schalles, R.R.; Powell, Douglas A.; Cundiff, L.V.; Glaze, J.B. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1992)
    The rat-tail syndrome occurs in a small percentage of calves produced by crossing Continental breeds of cattle with Angus or Holstein. These calves are characterized by short, curly, malformed, sometimes sparse body ...
  • Brazle, F.K.; Kuhl, Gerry L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1990)
    Growing steers were limit-fed the same amount of a grain- and silage-based ration either in drylot or on dormant native range. The steers wintered on pasture gained 14.2% slower (1.82 V5 2.08 lb/d; P<.01) and were 15.3% ...
  • Weber, A.D.; Mackintosh, D.L.; Good, D.L.; Smith, E.F. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1951)
    The Kansas, Oklahoma, and Ohio Agricultural Experiment Stations co-operated in this study, which was supported by grants from the American Hereford Association. The project involved comparisons of steer calves sired by ...
  • Coffey, K.; Brazle, F. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1988)
    Two experiments were conducted to evaluate the performance of stocker calves grazing high-endophyte fescue (68 to 70%) and offered oxytetracycline in a free-choice mineral supplement. In Experiment 1, 24 yearling crossbred ...
  • Coffey, K.P.; Moyer, Joseph L.; Lomas, Lyle W. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1989)
    Early-intensive grazing of smooth bromegrass reduced animal gains but improved gain/acre. Morantel tartrate reduced fecal nematode egg counts but had no effect on animal performance at either stocking rate
  • Dietz, J.C.; Behnke, Keith C.; Allee, G.A.; Deyoe, C.W. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1981)
    Using 128 crossbred pigs with an average initial weight of 18.3 Kg, we determined the effect that insect- and fungal-damaged sorghum would have on the pigs' performance. No differences were found in daily feed consumption ...
  • O'Quinn, P.R.; Bergstrom, J.R.; Loughmiller, J.A.; Musser, R.E.; Nessmith, W.B.Jr; Goodband, Robert D.; Nelssen, Jim L.; Tokach, Michael D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1996)
    Two growth trials were conducted to evaluate the effects of replacing the lactose provided by dried whey in the phase II diet with either deproteinized whey or an alternative lactose source, DairyLac 80®. No differences ...
  • Greenwood, R.H.; Morrill, J.L; Schwenke, J.R. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1996)
    Newborn Holstein calves were used to investigate responses to supplemental antioxidants provided in daily milk allotments. Treated calves assigned to receive daily 100 IU of d-alpha tocopherol (vitamin E), 5 mg ...
  • Allee, G.L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1977)
    One hundred twenty-six crossbred pigs averaging 11.7 kg. (25.7 lbs.) were used to determine the effects of energy density (added fat or fiber) and calorie-protein, calorie-lysine, and calorie-nutrient ratios of rations on ...
  • Dietz, J.C.; Behnke, Keith C.; Deyoe, C.W.; Allee, G.L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1984)
    Nutritional quality and physical conditions were used to evaluate grain sorghum damaged by either the lesser grain borer Rhyzopertha dominica (F.) or by nontoxin-producing fungi. Experimental treatments were: 1) control ...
  • Dietz, J.C.; Behnke, Keith C.; Deyoe, C.W.; Allee, G.L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1984)

  • 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)
