  • Budiongo, K.J.; Harbers, L.H.; Seabourn, B.W.; Bolsen, K.K.; Brent, B.E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1997)
    This research was designed to develop a set of prediction equations to measure nutrient composition of Kansas sorghum silages using both a portable and a research type near-infrared spectrometer (NIRS). A robust set ...
  • Holthaus, D.L.; Bonilla, D.R.; Pfaff, L.; Haverkamp, D.; Dalke, B.S.; Sonon, R.N.; Budiongo, K.; Bolsen, K.K.; Young, Matthew A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1993)
    Alfalfa silages were made in pilot- and farm-scale silos, and five sealing treatments were compared. After 90 days, sealing dramatically reduced DM losses at the 5 and 10 in. depths in the farm silos and at the 0 to ...
  • Dickerson, J.T.; Bolsen, K.K.; Brent, B.E.; Lin, C.; Boyer, John E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1992)
    Corn and forage sorghum silages were stored in pilot-scale silos for 180 days, and dry matter (DM) and organic matter (OM) recoveries and estimated OM recovery were measured at three depths within the top 3 ft. of ...
  • Holthaus, D.L.; Young, Matthew A.; Pfaff, L.; Brent, B.E.; Boyer, John E.; Bolsen, K.K. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1994)
    Alfalfa silages were made in pilot- and farm-scale silos, and five sealing treatments were compared. After 90 days, sealing dramatically reduced dry matter (DM) losses at the 5 and 10 inch depths in the farm silos and ...
  • Dickerson, J.T.; Bolsen, K.K.; Brent, B.E.; Lin, C.; Boyer, John E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1992)
    Corn and forage sorghum silages were stored in pilot-scale silos for 180 days, and dry matter (DM) and organic matter (OM) recoveries and estimated OM recovery were measured at three depths within the top 3 ft. of ...
  • Dickerson, J.T.; Niwa, Y.; Bolsen, K.K.; Brent, B.E.; Lin, C.; Bradford, J.E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1991)
    Effects of covering, time, and depth from the surface on the rate and extent of top spoilage losses in alfalfa silages stored in horizontal silos were studied under pilot- and farm-scale conditions. Covering silages ...
  • Trater, C.M.; Hunt, Melvin C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2003)
    Steaks from 12 loins were used to determine the best time and temperature combinations for blooming (development of a bright-red color) of the longissimus muscle at 2, 14, and 26 days postmortem. The lowest temperature ...
  • Richardson, D.; Smith, E.F.; Cox, R.F. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1956)
    Four tests, one with steer calves and three with heifers, were conducted to study the ratio of roughage to concentrate in beef cattle fattening rations. Beef cattle are naturally large consumers of roughage and serve ...
  • Richardson, D.; Baker, F.H.; Smith, E.F.; Cox, R.F. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1955)
    Fifty Hereford heifers were divided into five lots as equally as possible on the basis of weight, size, conformation, and previous treatment. The heifers were wintered, 10 per loot, as calves on the following rations: (1) ...
  • Richardson, D.; Smith, E.F.; Cox, R.F.; Keating, E.K. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1954)
    Fifty Hereford heifers were divided into five lots as equally as possible on the basis of weight, size, conformation, and previous treatment. These heifers were wintered as calves on the following rations: (1) alfalfa ...
  • Richardson, D.; Baker, F.H.; Smith, E.F.; Cox, R.F. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1955)
    Fifty Hereford heifers were divided into five lots as equally as possible on the basis of weight, size, conformation, and previous treatment. The heifers were wintered, 10 per loot, as calves on the following rations: (1) ...
  • Richardson, D.; Smith, E.F.; Cox, R.F. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1953)
    The physical balance or ratio of roughage to concentrates is an important factor to consider in the ration of fattening cattle. Beef cattle serve as one of the principal means of marketing roughage. Since a large amount ...
  • Richardson, D.; Smith, E.F.; Cox, R.F. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1952)
    This is a preliminary report covering the first 98 days of this feeding trial which is still being conducted; therefore the reader should bear in mind that the figures are in no way conclusive or complete. The physical ...
  • Morrill, J.L. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1986)
    For many years, fiber in dairy rations was measured and expressed as crude fiber. More recently acid detergent fiber (ADF) and neutral detergent fiber (NDF) have been used. The crude fiber (CF) determination uses acid ...
  • Koch, B.A.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1971)
    The feed, required per pound of gain was similar for pigs fed corn, sorghum grain, corn-wheat, or sorghum grain-wheat diets. Pigs on the corn ration grew significantly (P<.05) faster. The sorghum grain, sorghum grain-wheat, ...
  • Allee, G.L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1977)
    One hundred eight crossbred, weaned pigs averaging 10.0ks (22.1 lbs.) were used to compare rations containing sorghum, corn, or wheat with 0 or 4% added fat (tallow) on performance of young pigs. There were no significant ...
  • McKee, M.; Evans, J.D.; Schalles, R.R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1972)
    Twenty-six Angus, Hereford, and Shorthorn bull calves were started on feed November 16, 1970, to study differences in protein content of rations. The bulls were from 184 to 302 days old. They were randomly assigned within ...
  • Roberts, H. A. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1993)
