  • Smith, Craig M.; Peterson, Jeffrey M.; Leatherman, John C.; Williams, Jeffery R. (2012)
    While there is substantial evidence that nonpoint sources have lower nutrient reduction costs than point sources, experience with water quality trading (WQT) reveals a common theme: little or no trading activity. The success ...
  • Riley, Jack G.; Pope, Ronald V. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1984)
    Finishing yearling beef steers were used to compare various implant programs in a 167-day trial. All implant programs increased daily gain ranging from 6.6 to 25.4% over non-implanted controls and improved feed efficiency ...
  • Danilova, Tatiana V.; Friebe, Bernd R.; Gill, Bikram S. (2012)
    Fluorescent in situ hybridization (FISH) is a useful tool for physical mapping of chromosomes and studying evolutionary chromosome rearrangements. Here we report a robust method for single-copy gene FISH for wheat. FISH ...
  • Smith, G.M.; Dikeman, Michael E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1977)
    This article was abstracted from a manuscript by Gerald H. Smith, U.S. Meat Animal Research Center, Clay Center, Nebraska which appeared in the December, 1976, issue of the Journal of Animal Science. The carcass and meats ...
  • Lamb, G.C.; Thompson, K. E.; Anderson, K.; Grieger, David M.; Rozell, Timothy G.; Stevenson, Jeffrey S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1998)
    Our objective was to determine the effect of site of semen deposition on pregnancy rate in beef cows inseminated at a fixed time or after observed estrus. Cows were synchronized with a combination of gonadotropin-releasing ...
  • Koch, B.A. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1964)
    Slotted floors in all phases of swine production are being widely investigated. Confining pigs on a slotted floor is not a new idea. However, we need to know more about how best to use slotted floors.
  • Kreikmeier, K.K.; Harmon, D.L.; Avery, T.B.; Brandt, Robert T., Jr. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1988)
    Three Holstein steers (930 lb) were surgically fitted with abomasal and ileal cannulae, portal and mesenteric venous catheters, and an elevated carotid artery and used to study small intestinal starch digestion. Water, ...
  • Rosario, B. Macias; McVay, L.; Aramouni, Fadi M.; Schmidt, Karen A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2003)
    Milk is widely considered one of the world’s most valuable foods. As a raw material, it is available in various forms, and is found in an ever-increasing variety of nutritional products. Milk is a complex biological fluid ...
  • Allee, G.L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1980)
    Smutty wheat substituted for milo in diets for pigs from 20-60 pounds did not affect pig performance.
  • Tiwari, Vijay K.; Wang, Shichen; Sehgal, Sunish K.; Vrána, Jan; Friebe, Bernd R.; Kubaláková, Marie; Chhuneja, Praveen; Doležel, Jaroslav; Akhunov, Eduard D.; Kalia, Bhanu; Sabir, Jamal; Gill, Bikram S. (2014)
    Background: Monitoring alien introgressions in crop plants is difficult due to the lack of genetic and molecular mapping information on the wild crop relatives. The tertiary gene pool of wheat is a very important source ...
  • Bolsen, K.; Axe, D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1984)
    High-moisture forage sorghum silage was fed to 108 steer calves to measure the effect of sodium bicarbonate and feed flavor (Omniflavor®) on calf performance. Overall performance was similar for all three rations by the ...
  • Axe, D.; Bolsen, K.; Jacques, K.; Harmon, D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1985)
    Supplementing forage sorghum silage rations with sodium bicarbonate (NaHCO3 ) improved performance of growing cattle over the control supplement. However, neither NaHCO 3 nor sodium bentonite supplementation to corn ...
  • Farney, Jaymelynn K.; Mamedova, Laman; Minton, J. Ernest; Coetzee, J. F.; Hollis, Larry C.; Bradford, Barry J. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2012)
    Inflammation has been proposed as a contributor to metabolic disorders in transition dairy cows. The purpose of this experiment was to determine if a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug, sodium salicylate (SS), benefits ...
  • Burnham, L.L.; Kim, I.H.; Hines, Robert H.; Gugle, Terry L.; Hancock, Joe D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1995)
    Extruded soybeans improved rates and efficiencies of gain when fed to nursery pigs in place of soybean meal (SBM). Sodium sulfite (an extrusion aid) increased extruder throughput and improved d 13 to 35 and overall ...
  • Burnham, L.L.; Kim, I.H.; Gugle, Terry L.; Hines, Robert H.; Hancock, Joe D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1994)
    A total of 150 weanling pigs (14.2 lb avg body wt) was used in a 28-d growth assay to determine the effects of using sodium sulfite as an extrusion enhancer for soy products. Treatments were: 1) soybean meal (SBM), ...
  • Knewtson, Sharon J. B.; Kirkham, Mary B.; Janke, Rhonda R.; Murray, Leigh W.; Carey, Edward E. (2012)
    The sustainability of soil quality under high tunnels will influence management of high tunnels currently in use and grower decisions regarding design and management of new high tunnels to be constructed. Soil quality was ...
  • Iriarte, Fanny B.; Obradović, Aleksa; Wernsing, Mine H.; Jackson, Lee E.; Balogh, Botond; Hong, Jason A.; Momol, M. Timur; Jones, Jeffrey B.; Vallad, Gary E. (2012)
    Soil-based root applications and attenuated bacterial strains were evaluated as means to enhance bacteriophage persistence on plants for bacterial disease control. In addition, the systemic nature of phage applied to tomato ...
  • Spillman, C.K.; Robbins, F.V.; Koch, B.A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1977)
    The basic concept of the solar energy collector- storage system for preheating ventilating air is sound, and it should be an economic alternative as energy becomes less available and/or more expensive. Based on current ...
  • Dunham, James R. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1992)
    Somatic Cell Count (SCC) affects productivity of a dairy herd and, thus, potential profit. Almost all SCC problems can be solved by management. The DHIA SCC program is very useful for evaluating the situation in a ...
