  • McKee, M.; Evans, J.D.; Schalles, R.R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-03-11)
    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, 2011-08-02)
    Flavor control in market milk begins on the farm and continues through the processing plant and into the home of the consumer. Flavor control is directly or indirectly related to the health of the cow, the feeding of ...
  • Schmidt, Karen A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-12-01)
    Raw milk quality is important to the processor for many reasons, this quality can be assessed by several different tests. Quality tests are used to ensure that the raw milk meets legal USDA standards as well as some of ...
  • Anderson, S.; Brandt, Robert T., Jr. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-12-01)
    A 60-day growth trial with 170 exotic crossbred steers (avg. wt. 626 lbs) was conducted to assess the value of raw soybeans in silage-based diets. Protein supplements were based on 1) urea, 2) urea plus soybean oil (SBO), ...
  • Schroeder, Ted C.; Mintert, J.R.; Blair, John M. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-04-15)
    This study examined the reaction of slaughter hog cash and futures prices to USDA Hogs and Pigs reports. Over the 1972-87 period, the nearby live hog futures price had $1/cwt or larger absolute price changes on 48% of the ...
  • Cox, C. M.; Cox, T. S.; Bockus, William W.; Peters, T.; Garrett, Karen A. (2012-06-01)
    Methods of disease management used in annual grain crops, especially cultural practices designed to disrupt the disease cycle of a particular pathogen, will not necessarily be applicable to perennial grain crops. Resistance ...
  • Lipper, R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-05-07)
    Of several types of processes to capture energy from organic wastes, anaerobic digestion appears to be most attractive for swine wastes. It can stabilize the waste while producing bio-gas or methane gas. The concept has ...
  • Allee, G.L.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-05-07)
    Gains of finishing pigs fed whole or rolled reconstituted sorghum grain (30% moisture) from 100 lbs. to an average of 210 lbs. were similar and similar to gains by pigs fed a ground sorghum grain ration. Compared on a 90% ...
  • Smith, W.; McAdams, V.E. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-05-05)
    Performance in beef cattle includes all traits that contribute to the efficient production of beef with quality appeal to the consumer. The systematic measurement of economically important production traits and the use of ...
  • Cranwell, C.D.; Simms, D.D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-10-14)
    Three hundred nine feedlots were mailed questionnaires to ascertain the types of recordkeeping systems currently being used to monitor health programs and FDA-specified treatment withdrawal times. Microcomputer ...
  • Meyer, M. J.; Everett, R.W.; Van Amburgh, M.E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-12-01)
    The primary advantages of reducing age at first calving (AFC) include reducing rearing costs as well as reducing time in which the heifer is only a capital drain on farm resources. The primary disadvantage of reducing AFC ...
  • Smith, J.F.; Stokka, Gerald L.; Scoby, R.K; Van Anne, T.; Shirley, John E. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-05-06)
    Bovine leukosis virus (BLV) is a cancerous condition of tissues in which lymph nodes and lymphocytes are affected. Infected cattle may be identified by testing blood sera for BLV antibodies using the agar gel ...
  • Wondra, K.J.; Kennedy, G.A.; Hines, Robert H.; Hancock, Joe D.; Behnke, Keith C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-02-11)
    One hundred primiparous sows were used to determine the effects of corn particle size in lactation diets on sow and litter performance. Sows were fed com-soybean mealbased diet with the com ground to 1,200, 900, 600, or ...
  • Sindt, J.J.; Montgomery, Sean P.; Farran, T.B.; Drouillard, James S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-08-23)
    Steam-flaked corn samples were used in a series of experiments to determine if refractive index could be used as a rapid, inexpensive method to predict starch availability. Results were best when samples were incubated ...
  • Friebe, Bernd R.; Qi, Lili; Liu, Cheng; Liu, Wenxuan; Gill, Bikram S. (2012-05-17)
    Wild relatives of bread wheat, Triticum aestivum L. are an important source for disease and pest resistance that can be exploited in wheat improvement. However, in wheat/alien species hybrids the pairing homoeologous gene, ...
  • Bernardo, Amy; Bai, Guihua; Yu, Jianbin; Kolb, Fred; Bockus, William W.; Dong, Yanhong (2014-04-04)
    The Chinese wheat Ning7840 (Triticum aestivum L.) contains Fhb1, a major quantitative trait locus (QTL) for Fusarium head blight (FHB) resistance, and has been widely used as a resistant parent in breeding programs worldwide, ...
  • Kofoid, Kenneth D.; Perumal, Ramasamy; Reese, John C.; Campbell, L. R. (2013-04-24)
    The biotypic diversity of the greenbug [Schizaphis graminum (Rondani)] and development of lines with tolerance to greenbug feeding are ongoing concerns of sorghum [Sorghum bicolor (L.) Moench.] breeding programs in the ...
  • Martin, Terry J.; Zhang, Guorong; Fritz, Allan K.; Miller, Rebecca; Chen, Ming-Shun (2014-04-04)
