  • Bell, F.W.; Mackintosh, D.L.; Pickett, A.G. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1950)
    Rate of gain in the feedlot is one of the most important factors determining the profits from cattle feeding. Also cattle which gain faster usually have more finish and sell for a higher price per hundredweight. There is ...
  • Uriarte-Archundia, M.E.; Bolsen, K.K.; Brent, B.E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2002)
    The objectives of this study with whole-plant corn silage were to determine the effects of a biological additive and sealing technique on yeast and mold populations; and to examine the relationship between the microbial ...
  • Uriarte-Archundia, M.E.; Bolsen, K.K.; Brent, B.E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2002)
    The objectives of this study with whole-plant corn silage were to determine the effects of forage density after packing, and sealing technique on yeast and mold populations; and to examine the relationship between the ...
  • Burson, D.E.; Hunt, Melvin C.; Schafer, D.E.; Beckwith, D.; Garrison, J.R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1982)
    Two studies were designed to test the effects of stunning method and time interval between stunning and bleeding on blood splashing in pork muscle. In study I, 82 market weight barrows and gilts were randomly assigned to ...
  • Garner, C. M.; Unruh, John A.; Hunt, Melvin C.; Boyle, Elizabeth A. E.; Houser, Terry A.; Stroda, Sally L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2014)
    Subprimals can be stored in a vacuum package for extended periods of time at low storage temperatures. The number of days that subprimals may be held before processing can be influenced by the distribution chain, ...
  • Uwituze, S.; Parsons, G.L.; Shelor, M.K.; Karges, K.K.; Gibson, M.L.; Depenbusch, Brandon E.; Drouillard, James S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2008)
    Rapid expansion of fuel ethanol production in the High Plains, where feedlots commonly use steam-flaked corn diets, has popularized substituting dried distiller’s grains with solubles (DDGS) for a portion of the ...
  • Stevenson, Jeffrey S.; Thompson, K. E.; Kobayashi, Y. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1996)
    In Experiment 1, four programmed AIbreeding treatments were tested. The so-called OvSynch program, which requires no heat detection before a fixed-time insemination, decreased conception rates compared with a similar ...
  • Mintert, J.; Tynon, R.; Tokach, Michael D.; Langemeier, Michael R.; Schroeder, Ted C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1994)
    Ten hog marketing groups located in Kansas and Iowa were surveyed during 1993 to determine the success, operation, and management of hog marketing groups. Results offer insights into the structure and organization of ...
  • Stevenson, Jeffrey S.; Davis, Duane L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1984)
    Our objective was to determine the effectiveness of inducing estrus during lactation by temporarily separating the litter from the sow during the last week of lactation. Lactating sows were removed daily from their litters ...
  • Mavromlichalis, I.; Hines, Robert H.; Senne, B.W.; Sorrell, S.P.; Cao, H.; Hancock, Joe D.; DeRouchey, Joel M. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1998)
    Three experiments were conducted to determine the effects of replacing lactose with sucrose and molasses in simple and complex diets for nursery pigs. In general, complex diets supported greater growth performance than ...
  • Thompson, W.; Oltjen, J.; Bolsen, K.; Ilg, H.; Riley, Jack G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1978)
    Sudangrass, sorghum-sudan, forage sorghum, and corn silages were full-fed to yearling steers for 70-or 91-day growing periods. For both periods, steers fed corn silage outperformed steers fed any other silage. In the 70-day ...
  • Michaud, J. P.; Grant, Angela K. (2005)
    Laboratory experiments compared the nutritive value of various pollen sources for the development of Coleomegilla maculata DeGeer under conditions of continuous water availability and simulated drought. When water was ...
  • Trotter, M.; Allee, G.L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1974)
    A growth and two nitrogen retention studies were conducted to determine the sulfur amino acid requirement of the finishing pig. Adding 0.10% DL-methionine to a 9.0% protein semi-purified basal diet containing 0.14% total ...
  • Trotter, M.; Allee, G.L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1974)
    A growth trial and a nitrogen retention trial were conducted to determine the sulfur amino acid requirement of the growing pig. Adding 0.10% DL-methionine to a 14.1% protein basal diet containing 0.21% sulfur amino ...
  • Campbell, C.G.; St Jean, G.; Titgemeyer, Evan C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1995)
    Two studies were conducted to evaluate sulfur amino acid requirements of growing steers. In trial 1, six ruminally cannulated steers (352 lb) were used to determine methionine requirements . Treatments were abomasal infusions ...
  • McCollough, R.L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1973)
    Two years and 270 head of steers were used to determine the feeding value of 13 hybrid sorghum grains and 2 hybrid corn grains fed in dry-rolled high-concentrate rations fed to finishing steers. The 15 corn and sorghum ...
  • Langemeier, Michael R.; Ohlenbusch, P.D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1996)
    Animal performance and the net return per acre for four CRP research sites in Kansas in 1994 and 1995 were examined. Both mowing and prescribed burning increased animal performance in 1994. Mowing was economically feasible ...
  • Langemeier, Michael R.; Ohlenbusch, P.D.; Jones, R.D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1997)
    Animal performance and n et return per acre were examined for four CRP research sites in Kansas in 1 994, 1995, and 1996. Both mowing and prescribed burning increased animal performance in 1994. Mowing was economical ...
