  • Nicholson, R.I.; Fitzner, G.E.; Nichols, David A.; Hancock, Joe D.; Hines, Robert H.; Goodband, Robert D.; Nelssen, Jim L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1989)
    Space allowances of 6, 8, 10, and 12 ft^2 were evaluated for pigs fed from 130 lb to a pen average of 250 lb. Average daily gain and average daily feed intake. increased linearly (P<.05) as space allowance increased. ...
  • Gao, Jincheng; Wagner, Larry E.; Fox, Fred; Chung, S. H.; Vaughan, J. K.; Lamb, B. K. (2013)
    The Wind Erosion Prediction System (WEPS) is used to simulate soil erosion by wind on cropland and was originally designed to run simulations on a field scale. This study extended WEPS to run on multiple fields (grid cells) ...
  • Campbell, James F.; Arthur, Frank H.; Zhu, Kun Yan (2014)
    Aerosol insecticides are commonly used for management of stored-product pests inside food facilities, but the physical complexity of the interior of most food facilities may influence the dispersal and deposition of droplets ...
  • Khatiwada, Raju; Hettiarachchi, Ganga M.; Mengel, David B.; Fei, Mingwei (2012)
    Phosphorus management in reduced-tillage systems is a great concern for farmers. Conclusive positive results of deep-banding P fertilizers compared with broadcast application and the chemistry of reduced-tillage systems ...
  • Schalles, R.R.; Markham, R.W.; Leipold, H.W.; Spire, M.F. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1989)
    Angular limb deformity, observed in several breeds of cattle, results in a knock-kneed and splay-footed condition in the front legs. This study shows that angular limb deformity is a congenital structural defect, inherited ...
  • DeGeer, S.L.; Bratcher, C.L.; Crozier-Dodson, B.A.; Johnson, D.E.; Stika, J.F.; Hunt, Melvin C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2009)
    Dry aging is an old-time process used to produce a high quality beef product marketed to high-end customers. Its most unique quality is the distinctive dry-aged flavor. Dry aging has been accomplished through many protocols ...
  • Owen, K.Q.; Kats, L.J.; Nelssen, Jim L.; Tokach, Michael D.; Goodband, Robert D.; Dritz, Steven S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1993)
    A total of 197 weanling pigs (initially 11.7 lb and 18 d of age) was used in a 28 d growth trial to determine the influence of spray-dried egg protein as a protein substitute for either soybean meal or spray-dried porcine ...
  • Aubel, N.A.; Eckerle, G.J.; Pacheco, L.A.; Macek, M.J.; Mundell, L.R.; Olson, K. C.; Jaeger, John R.; Murray, Leigh W. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2012)
    Diet selection is a dynamic process because of seasonal changes in animal and plant characteristics. Nutrient requirements of grazing animals are a function of physiological state; moreover, plant characteristics may be ...
  • Allee, G.L.; Koch, B.A.; Knake, R.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1974)
    In a three-week feeding trial for 30 growing pigs (70 lbs.), we compared diets formulated by using 1973 sprout damaged sorghum grain from two Kansas areas. No palatability problems were noted, weight gains were similar ...
  • Koch, B.A.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1983)
    One hundred and twenty weaned pigs were used to evaluate the effect of space allowance. Pigs were housed in a control environment nursery with woven wire flooring with 4, 6, 8, 10, or 12 head per 4' x 5' pen which allowed ...
  • Pollmann, D.S.; Bandyk, C.A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1982)
    A study was conducted to determine the viability of three commercially available lactobacillus products in nonmedicated and medicated (lincomycin at 100 grams per ton) swine feed in several different environments over a ...
  • Dunham, James R. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1994)
    The Stage of Lactation Profile (SOLP) is a good estimate of the shape of the lactation curve for dairy herds. The SOLPs for herds with various milk production levels are somewhat similar. The rates of decline of ...
  • Tucker, L.; Harbers, L.H.; Smith, E.F. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1971)
    More urea, a torn of nonprotein nitrogen, would be fed to ruminants except for inefficient conversion of urea-nitrogen to Microbial protein, toxicity, lack of palatability and urea segregating in mixed rations. As a ...
  • Tucker, L.L.; Harbers, L.H.; Smith, E.F. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1972)
    During the winter of 1970-71, 63 six-year-old, non-lactating, pregnant Hereford cows were divided into eight groups to compare a soybean meal-sorghum grain supplement with supplements containing either urea, Starea 44 ...
  • Tucker, L.L.; Harbers, L.H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1972)
    Use of urea in beef cattle rations, particularly in rations containing high levels of roughage (growing-type rations), has been limited by urea’s toxicity, segregation and mixing problems, palatability, and poor use by ...
  • Moore, B.L.; Schroeder, Ted C.; Langemeier, Michael R.; Flinchbaugh, Barry L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1993)
    The Kansas hog industry represented 3.8% of U.S. hog production in 1977 and had peak production of nearly 3.4 million head in 1971. Since that time, the industry has declined significantly, representing only 2.5% of U.S. ...
  • Gill, V.S.; Thippareddi, H.; Phebus, Randall K.; Marsden, James L.; Kastner, Curtis L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2002)
    We evaluated the destruction of Listeria monocytogenes on surfaces of artificially inoculated, vacuum-packaged beef salami by steam pasteurization (Stork RMA-Protecon Post-process Pasteurizer). Beef salami was inoculated ...
  • Roth, G.M.; Brent, B.E.; Schalles, R.R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1973)
    Gelatinization was measured in flaked sorghum grain that weighed 16.5 to 47 lbs. a bushel. Samples were steamed from 20 to 50 minutes, and varied in moisture content from 16.9 to 20.9% as they entered the chamber. ...
