  • Blanco-Canqui, Humberto; Claassen, M. M.; Presley, DeAnn R. (2012)
    Impact of cover crops (CCs) on winter wheat [Triticum aestivum (L.)] and grain sorghum [Sorghum bicolor (L.) yields is not well understood. We assessed crop yield and its relationships with CC-induced changes in soil ...
  • Eckerle, G.J.; Pacheco, L.A.; Olson, K. C.; Jaeger, John R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2011)
    Sericea lespedeza (Lespedeza cuneata) is a noxious weed that infests approximately 600,000 acres of native tallgrass range in Kansas. Intake of sericea lespedeza by grazing livestock is poor, presumably as a result of ...
  • Fitzner, G.E.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1988)
    Two hundred forty pigs were used to evaluate the use of various amounts (0, 10, 15, 20, 25%) of black sunflower oil seeds in weanling pig diets. After 14 days, no significant differences were found between any of the dietary ...
  • Lindell, S.A.; Brandt, Robert T., Jr.; Minton, J. Ernest; Blecha, Frank; Stokka, G.L.; Milton, C.T. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1994)

  • Allee, G.L.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1972)
    One hundred forty-four pigs averaging 61 pounds were used to determine the influence of copper level on performance, copper storage in the liver, and to determine the influence of withdrawing during the finishing phase. ...
  • Woolfolk, J.S.; Conway, K.; Schalles, R.R.; Smith, E.F. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1973)
    A mixture of 60% dehydrated alfalfa crumbles and 40% dry rolled sorghum grain was fed ad lib to calves 30 days before weaning. The calves ate an average of 2.6 lbs. per day and gained 0.32 lbs more per day average during ...
  • El-Zarkouny, S. Z.; Cartmill, J. A.; Stevenson, Jeffrey S. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1999)
    Administering progesterone to lactating dairy cows has sometimes proven effective in increasing pregnancy rates. In this study, cows were treated with the Ovsynch protocol in addition to supplemental progesterone given ...
  • Lamb, G.C.; Cartmill, J.A.; Hensley, B.A.; El-Zarkouny, S.E.; Marple, T.J.; Stevenson, Jeffrey S.; Grieger, David M. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2000)
    In two experiments, combining a source of progestin with the ovulation synchronization protocol using gonadotropin-releasing hormone plus prostaglandin F2a (GnRH + PGF2a) tended to increase or statistically increase ...
  • Bell, T.D.; Smith, W.H.; Erhart, A.B. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1953)
    Since the preparation of the original report on the lamb feeding studies at the Garden City Station, additional information has been obtained concerning the effect of stilbestrol upon the reproductive organs of wether ...
  • Beck, T.J.; Simms, D.D.; Brandt, Robert T., Jr.; Cochran, R.C.; Kuhl, G.L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1991)
    During two winters, 96 beef cows in late gestation were utilized in 60-day precalving feeding trials to evaluate supplementation for cows fed ammoniated wheat straw. Treatments included: control--mineral supplement ...
  • James, B.W.; Owen, K.Q.; Woodworth, J.C.; Tokach, Michael D.; Goodband, Robert D.; Nelssen, Jim L.; Dritz, Steven S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2002)
    Our previous experiments evaluating the interactive effects of dietary L-carnitine and Paylean have primarily focused on improved meat quality benefits of feeding carnitine in combination with Paylean. Although there were ...
  • Barnhardt, B.B.; Epp, M.P.; Bryant, A.M.; Guiroy, P.J.; Blasi, Dale A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2007)
    Supplementation of range cattle with minerals is a common management practice that is used to maximize performance. Flint Hills grasses provide an adequate amount of protein for the diet through the first half of a ...
  • Nelssen, Jim L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1985)
    After several years of intensive research) the addition of fat to swine diets continues to generate spirited discussion. The use of cereal grain-soybean meal diets in the swine industry is popular because of the plentiful ...
