  • Aubel, C.E. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-11-07)
    A second experiment was conducted with fall pigs in the dry lot. Two lots of pigs were used. One lot received the RQ-20 in the protein mixture at the rate of 3 pounds to 600 pounds of supplement. The mixture was self-fed ...

  • Smith, E.F.; Good, D.L.; Cox, R.F. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2012-01-04)
    Forty-five good quality Hereford heifer calves were purchased ill south-central Kansas for use in this test. They were ted silage, prairie hay, 1 pound of protein, and 2 pounds of milo grain per head daily until the ...
  • Smith, E.F.; Cox, R.F.; Good, D.L.; Mackintosh, D.L. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2012-01-25)
    Seventy good quality Hereford heifer calves were purchased for $31.50 a hundredweight in east central Kansas and received October 1, 1951. The pay weight was 425 pounds per head. It was necessary to dehorn most of the ...
  • Bell, T.D.; Hix, E.L.; Erhart, A.B.; Parrish, D.B.; Underbjerg, G.K.L. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2012-01-04)
    Experiments designed to test the need and value of salt in the rations of feeder lambs have been conducted by the Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station for the past three years. The tests have shown that feedlot gains ...
  • Bell, T.D.; Holland, L.A. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2012-01-04)
    During the fall of 1951, ewe lambs representing the three types of ewes commonly used in Kansas were secured from southern Utah. One-third of these 140 lambs were of straight Rambouillet or finewool breeding and similar ...
  • Mintert, J.; Ward, C.E.; Peel, D.S.; Schroeder, Ted C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-09-02)
    Interviews were conducted with cattle feeders, beef packers, and others involved in the beef industry to project how fed cattle prices will be discovered in the next decade. Respondents generally indicated that economics ...
  • Domenghini, Jacob C.; Bremer, Dale J.; Fry, Jack D.; Davis, Gregory L. (2014-01-10)
    Municipalities often restrict irrigation of urban landscapes, causing plants to experience drought stress. Few data are available regarding drought resistance of non-turfgrass landscape species. This study evaluated the ...
  • Pulley, Stephanie Leeann; Mellieon, H.I. Jr.; Stevenson, Jeffrey S. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2012-09-07)
    The objective of this research was to increase the proportion of cows with at least 1 functional corpus luteum (CL) and elevated progesterone at the onset of the timed artificial insemination (TAI) program. Postpartum ...
  • Plunkett, S.S.; Stevenson, Jeffrey S.; Call, Edward P. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2012-10-04)
    Two experiments were conducted in 17 dairy herds in NE Kansas to determine the effectiveness of prostaglandin F2α (PGF) for reducing intervals to conception for cows with silent or unobserved estrus. Cows that failed to ...
  • Davis, Duane L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-04-30)
    Alternate groups of sows were synchronized, with prostaglandin, to farrow within a certain time or to serve as controls. The objective was to determine if baby-pig survival or litter-weaning weight would be improved by ...
  • Ames, D.R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-02-18)
    Adjusting feedlot rations to match the thermal environment can reduce costs of gains. Adjusting protein content of rations does not change average daily gain but it improves protein efficiency.
  • Ames, D.R.; Willms, C.L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-03-04)
    A summer feedlot trial indicates that protein can be removed from finishing rations in proportion to magnitude of heat stress without causing a decline in average daily lain. Cattle consumed .13 kg/hd/day (.30 lb) less ...
  • Jensen, A.H.; Koch, B.A. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-04-28)
    The value of a feed protein is determined by its content of available essential amino acids. For example, in relation to the pigs’ needs, corn and milo proteins are definitely deficient in the amino acid lysine. Selection ...
  • Shiawoya, E.L.; Harbers, L.H.; Evans, J.D.; McKee, R.M (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-03-11)
    Pregnant Hereford and Angus cows wintered on native bluestem pasture were used to compare soybean-meal and Starea-containing blocks and protein supplements. Cow weight changes were similar with both supplements. Consumption ...
  • Allee, G.L.; Koch, B.A.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-05-07)
    Seventy-two pigs, 30 days old averaging 17 pounds initially, were used to evaluate lysine additions to 16 and 18 percent protein fortified corn-soybean meal diets. Adding 0.1% or 0.2% L-lysine to the 16% protein diet ...
  • McKee, M.; Schalles, R.R.; Zoellner, K.O. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-03-08)
    Three trials with Angus, Hereford, and Shorthorn bulls produced in the University teaching herd were conducted to determine effects of 10, 12, or 14% calculated crude protein levels in grain rations. In trial 1, the 10% ...
  • Thompson, W.; Riley, Jack G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-02-18)
    Ration erode protein levels of 9%, 11%, 15%, 12 declining to 10.5% and 13% declining to 11% and finally to 9% were fed with and without Monensin. Steers fed 9% protein continuously gained the least and were the least ...
