  • Soper, Alysha M.; Whitworth, R. Jeffery; McCornack, Brian P. (2013)
    Corn earworm, Helicoverpa zea Boddie (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae), and fall armyworm, Spodoptera frugiperda J.E. Smith, are occasional pests in sorghum, Sorghum bicolor L. Moench (Poales: Poaceae), and can be economically ...
  • O’Quinn, P.R.; Swanson, J.C.; Musser, R.E.; Goodband, Robert D.; Tokach, Michael D.; Nelssen, Jim L.; Dritz, Steven S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2000)
    A trial was conducted to determine the effects of sorting pigs by body weight at placement on growth performance and weight variation at finishing. Unsorted pigs and heavy sorted pigs had higher ADG than medium or light ...
  • Milton, C.T.; Brandt, Robert T., Jr. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1994)
    One hundred medium-framed, crossbred steers (738 lb) were used to compare non-protein nitrogen to natural protein supplementation of finishing diets for implanted steers. Diets were formulate d to contain 11.5 or 13.5% ...
  • McKee, M.; Kimple, K.; Ames, D.R.; Willms, C.L.; Corah, L.R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1978)
    Cows in mid-to-late gestation gained weight when fed either milo stover silage or alfalfa hay-wheat straw but lost weight when the forage source was milo-stover bales. When supplemented with additional corn grain as ...
  • Richardson, D.; Smith, E.F.; Perry, H.B.; Dunn, L.L.; Harbers, L.H. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1966)
    Americans consume large quantities of meat. An increasing population will demand more production to maintain present consumption rates. Protein is an essential nutrient for all animals. The simple-stomached animals (pigs, ...
  • Richardson, D.; Smith, E.F.; Koch, B.A.; Cox, R.F. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1957)
    In a previous test it was found that phosphoric acid can be used as a source of phosphorus for beef heifer calves on dry bluestem pasture. A phosphorus balance study with lambs also indicated efficient use of phosphorus ...
  • Richardson, D.; Smith, E.F.; Menzies, C.S.; Cox, R.F. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1956)
    In a previous test, it was found that phosphoric acid could be used as a source of phosphorus for beef heifers on dry bluestem pasture. A phosphorus balance study with lambs also indicated efficient utilization of ...
  • Richardson, D.; Baker, F.H.; Menzies, C.S.; Cox, R.F. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1955)
    Forty head of choice-quality Hereford heifer calves were divided into four lots of 10 animals each on the basis of weight and type. Each animal was branded with an individual number and lot number. All animals grazed ...
  • Bolsen, K.; Riley, Jack G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1976)
    One hundred five yearling steers were used to evaluate seven milo treatments: (1) dry, (2) micronized, (3) steam flaked +.2% propionic acid (acid-flake), (4) field harvested high moisture (F-HM) ensiled whole in an 02 ...
  • Bolsen, K.; Riley, Jack G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1977)
    Steers fed corn silage gained significantly (P<.05) faster than steers fed any other roughage. Wheat silage ranked second with gains significantly (P<.05) more than gains from milo stover silage, alfalfa hay or corn ...
  • Bolsen, K.K.; Fink, G.; Riley, Jack G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1975)
    We used 75 yearling steers in a 92-day trial to evaluate three sources of roughage: (1) chopped prairie hay; (2) milo stover silage; and (3) milo stover pellets; and five milo treatments: (1) dry, 85.5% dry matter ...
  • McKee, M.; Kimple, K.; Conway, K. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1977)
    We used 63 pregnant Hereford cows in mid gestation to evaluate need and source of supplemental protein on milo stubble. Cows fed free choice a 16% experimental nonprotein-nitrogen-based liquid supplement lost significantly more ...
  • Graff, J.L.; Schroeder, Ted C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1999)
    Price variability among carcasses increases with a change from live-weight to dressedweight to grid pricing. Grid pricing has the largest price variability, because the price for each carcass is influenced by all of ...
  • Schoenholz, C.K.; Hunter, R.D.; Nutsch, T.A.; Drouillard, James S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1999)
    Eighty Angus × Hereford cross steers were used in an individual feeding study to compare soybean molasses (a by-product of soybean meal manufacture) and soybean meal as ingredients in finishing diets containing flaked ...
  • Trater, A.M.; Löest, C.A.; Lambert, B.D.; Titgemeyer, Evan C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2001)
    We evaluated the optimal level of alfalfa inclusion in limit-fed, soybean hull-based diets. Steers were fed soybean hull-based diets containing 0 to 30% alfalfa or alfalfa alone. Feed intakes were lower for alfalfa than ...
  • Löest, C.A.; Bindel, D.J.; Titgemeyer, Evan C.; Drouillard, James S.; Blasi, Dale A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1998)
    Three hundred heifers (573 lb initial body weight) were used in a growing study to compare growth performance of cattle fed roughage-free diets comprised mainly of soybean hulls with that of cattle receiving roughage- and ...
  • Harbers, L.H.; Shiawoya, E.L.; Conway, K.; McKee, R.M. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1974)
    Similar gains and adjusted weaning weights can be expected from calves whose dams are wintered on soybean meal or Starea protein blocks. Rebreeding time is expected to be similar for both groups of dams.
  • Owen, K.Q.; Dritz, Steven S.; Tokach, Michael D.; Nelssen, Jim L.; Goodband, Robert D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1993)
    A total of 192 pigs (initially 8.0 lb and 12 d of age) was used to determine the optimal soybean meal level to be included in starter diets for the 12-d-old weaned pig. The trial was a 28 d growth assay. Pigs were allotted ...
  • DelCurto, T.; Cochran, R.C.; Beharka, A.A.; Vanzant, E.S.; Nagaraja, T. G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1989)
