    Twenty-four Holstein cows were used to evaluate the effects of processing methods on grain sorghum utilization by lactating dairy cows. No difference was observed in the utilization of steam-flaked grain sorghum and ...
  • Koch, B.A.; Lafferty, D.T.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-05-07)
    This progress report covers only growth rate and feed efficiency of pigs the first 73 days of one feeding trial. Replacing soybean meal with either dry-roasted whole soybeans or pressure-extruded, whole soybeans did not ...
  • Lewis, A.J.; Jones, D.B.; Giesemann, M.A.; Healy, B.J.; Hancock, Joe D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-04-15)
    One hundred weanling pigs (16.5 lb avg initial wt) were used in a 35-d growth assay to determine the effects of processing method (roasting in a Roast-A-Tron roaster vs extrusion in an Insta-Pro extruder) on the nutritional ...
  • Kim, I.H.; Hancock, Joe D.; Burnham, L.L.; Kennedy, G.A.; Nichols, David A.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-03-26)
