  • Goldy, G.; Olsen, W.; Riley, Jack G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1988)
    A wide range in serum cholesterol concentrations was observed within and between all four breeds of yearling bulls studied. The significance of this observation is unknown at this time. Addition research is necessary to ...
  • Francis, L.L; Kong, S.H.; Chambers, Delores H.; Jeon, I.J.; Simmons, S.R.; Schmidt, Karen A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2004)
    Many people seem to prefer to drink milk when it is cold. Research describing flavor and aftertaste of milk, and then correlating these traits with their chemical composition, has not previously been done. The ...
  • Schalles, R.R.; Ward, B.J.; Zoellner, K.O.; Martin, L.C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1990)
    Weights. frame scores. scrotal circumferences, and prices of bulls increased significantly over 17 years. Angus had the greatest increase in birth weight, average daily gain (ADG) during test, adjusted yearling weight, ...
  • Dryden, Michael W.; Broce, A. B. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1991)
    In June 1991, an investigation was conducted of a severe flea infestation in 23 Holstein dairy calves in South Central Kansas. Inspection of the dairy revealed massive numbers of fleas on calves and in the barn where ...
  • Michaud, J. P.; Bista, Mahadev; Mishra, Geetanjali; Singh, Omkar (2013)
    Male contributions, both chemical and behavioural, can influence female sperm usage and reproductive success. To determine whether such male factors are subject to depletion in Coccinella septempunctata and Coccinella ...
  • Kropf, Donald H.; Allen, Dell M.; Thouvenelle, G.J. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1975)
    Thirty carcasses, ten each from three groups-short-fed concentrate rations for about 70 days, grass-fed on Flint Hill pasture without supplemental feeding until slaughter in mid-to-late October, and long-fed concentrate ...
  • Mintert, J.; Jones, R.; Brazle, F.; Schroeder, Ted C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1992)
    Factors affecting western Kansas fed cattle prices during May through November 1990 were investigated. In particular, the impact of changes in captive cattle supplies on cash prices was examined. The term captive ...
  • Koch, B.A.; Smith, E.F.; Richardson, D.; Cox, R.F.; Hay, W.H.; Boren, Fred W. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1958)
    One of the major problems confronting cattlemen is control of occurrence of respiratory diseases such as the shipping fever complex, colds, nasal congestion, and pneumonia. These respiratory conditions .are especially ...
  • Gleghorn, J.F.; Marston, T.T.; Wanket, L.E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2001)
    A protocol to make anestrous cows more likely to cycle prior to estrous synchronization would greatly enhance reproductive efficiency. Ease of application, availability, and low cost make feeding melengestrol acetate ...
  • Thompson, A.W.; Eborn, D.R.; Keenan, L.D.; Grieger, David M. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2004)
    Recently, a new product, Eazi-Breed CIDR (a vaginal insert containing progesterone), was approved for estrus synchronization in beef heifers. In previous studies the CIDR has produced excellent estrus synchrony, but it ...
  • 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 ...
