  • Davis, Duane L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1985)
    The use of AI and embryo transfer in swine herds will undoubtedly increase during the next decade. The techniques themselves will undergo refinement and improvements as swine producers learn to use them and to manage the ...
  • Peterkova-Koci, Kamila; Robles-Murguia, Maricela; Ramalho-Ortigão, Marcelo; Zurek, Ludek (2012)
    Background : Microbial ecology of phlebotomine sand flies is not well understood although bacteria likely play an important role in the sand fly biology and vector capacity for Leishmania parasites. In this study, we ...
  • Heidker, J.I.; Ilg, H.; Behnke, Keith C.; Bolsen, K. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1982)
    Sila-bac, molasses, or both combined were evaluated as additives for ensiled high moisture sorghum grain. Control grain had the greatest increase in temperature during ensiling. Grain treated with Sila-bac had the highest ...
  • Bolsen, K.; Ilg, H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1981)
    Inoculant (Sila-bac), non-protein nitrogen (Cold-flo), and alkali (NaOH) silage additives were evaluated with whole-plant forage sorghum silage. All three additives decreased ensiling temperatures. Calves fed Sila-bec or ...
  • Bolsen, K.; Hinds, M.; Brethour, J. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1984)
    Numerous commercial silage additives, whose manufacturers claim will improve silage quality, are available to Kansas farmers and ranchers. We believe that these claims must ultimately be documented with farm-scale research. ...
  • Bolsen, K.K.; Hoover, J.D. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1985)
    Silage additives are receiving fairly widespread acceptance in the U.S. as management tools that are important for silage-making. Many products, which are added to the crop at the time of harvest or ensiling, are available ...
  • Bolsen, K.; Ilg, H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1980)
    Six commercial silage additives were evaluated in five trials with corn, forage sorghum, and alfalfa. In general, each additive improved the silage in at least one of four criteria we used for the comparisons: ...
  • Bolsen, K.K.; Brent, B.E.; Siefers, M.K.; Uriarte, M.E.; Schmidt, T.E.; Pope, Ronald V. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2000)
    Four important silage management practices that are in the control of livestock producers and that are sometimes poorly implemented or overlooked entirely include: inoculating, packing, sealing, and managing the feedout face.
  • Bolsen, K.; Ilg, H.; Hinds, M. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1984)
    In the first trial, calves fed Silo Guard II®-treated forage sorghum silage were 4.2% more efficient than those fed the control silage. Silo Guard II reduced the amount of heat produced during the ensiling process, and ...
  • Bolsen, K.; Ilg, H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1982)
    Normal corn silage, with and without additives, and drought-stressed corn silage were evaluated in a 77-day growing trial using 64 steers. Steers fed drought silage had slowest and least efficient gains. Additive-treat ...
  • Bolsen, K.; Riley, Jack G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1980)
    Two corn silages (37 to 38% DM) were made September 2 and 3, 1975; one was ensiled without additive (control), the other with Silo-Best added at 1.0 lb. per ton of fresh crop. Silos were opened after 36 days, and ...
  • Bolsen, K.; Ilg, H.; Hinds, M. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1984)
    Silo-Best lowered the ensiling temperature and increased the dry matter recovered from the silo by over 5 percentage units (82.3 vs. 77.3%). Calves fed the control silage gained faster and consumed more feed, but those fed ...
  • Bolsen, K.; Ilg, H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1980)
    Two corn silages (34 to 36% DM) were made August 4 and 5, 1976; one was ensiled without additive (control), the other with Silo-Guard added at 1.5 lbs. per ton of fresh crop. Silos were opened after 68 days, and each ...
  • Bolsen, K.; Ilg, H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1980)
    Two forage sorghum silages (29 to 30% DM) were made October 1 to 3, 1978; one ensiled without additive (control), the other with 1.5 lbs. of Silo-Guard added per ton of fresh crop. Silos were opened after 36 days, and ...
  • McKee, M.; Schalles, R.R.; Zoellner, K.O. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1971)
    Data on nine Simmental-Hereford cross calves (3 bulls and 6 females) from birth to 6 months of age was reported in Bulletin 536. The three bulls shared conditions with three Hereford, four Angus, and one Shorthorn bull. ...
  • Koch, B.A.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1969)
    Baby pigs have the ability to grow rapidly and efficiently. Creep rations at an early age enhance their potential. Most commercial creep rations contain feedstuffs to increase palatability and acceptability. Are these ...
  • Bulatewicz, Tom; Allen, A.; Peterson, Jeffrey M.; Staggenborg, Scott A.; Welch, S. M.; Steward, David R. (2013)
    Integrated environmental modeling enables the development of comprehensive simulations by compositing individual models within and across disciplines. The Simple Script Wrapper (SSW), developed here, provides a foundation ...
  • Smith, Craig M.; Peterson, Jeffrey M.; Leatherman, John C.; Williams, Jeffery R. (2012)
    While there is substantial evidence that nonpoint sources have lower nutrient reduction costs than point sources, experience with water quality trading (WQT) reveals a common theme: little or no trading activity. The success ...
  • Riley, Jack G.; Pope, Ronald V. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1984)
    Finishing yearling beef steers were used to compare various implant programs in a 167-day trial. All implant programs increased daily gain ranging from 6.6 to 25.4% over non-implanted controls and improved feed efficiency ...
  • Danilova, Tatiana V.; Friebe, Bernd R.; Gill, Bikram S. (2012)
    Fluorescent in situ hybridization (FISH) is a useful tool for physical mapping of chromosomes and studying evolutionary chromosome rearrangements. Here we report a robust method for single-copy gene FISH for wheat. FISH ...
