    Eighty-six pregnant. Hereford x Angus cows were randomly assigned to one of three winter supplement treatments: 1) soybean meal+sorghum grain, 2) alfalfa hay, or 3) dehydrated alfalfa pellets. Cows supplemented with ...
  • Richardson, D.; Smith, E.F. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1966)
    It is generally recognized that a readily available source of energy (preferably grain) must be in the ration for efficient synthesis of protein from nonprotein nitrogen. Therefore, nonprotein nitrogen is used primarily ...
  • Dawson, D.P.; Morrill, J.L.; Reddy, P.G.; Minocha, H.C. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1986)
    Studies were conducted to evaluate two comrnercl.al soy products and one experimental soy flour as protein sources in calf milk-replacers. Further tests were conducted to produce an improved product. None of the products ...
  • Allee, G.L.; Hsu, P.; Prather, R.S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1981)
    Two trials, involving 108 pigs, were conducted to evaluate the effects of replacing milk protein with various levels of soybean protein in milk replacer diets. Pigs fed diets in which 25 or 50% of the milk protein was ...
  • Epler, Michael; Staggenborg, Scott A. (2008)
    Soybean (Glycine max) yield is responsive to changes in plant population and row spacing under dryland conditions. Soybean seeding rate recommendations in many states were developed prior to the release of herbicide tolerant ...
  • Nichols, David A.; Hines, Robert H.; Goodband, Robert D.; Nelssen, Jim L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1988)
    Two trials, using a total of 240, crossbred, finishing pigs were conducted to evaluate 7, 9, and 11 ft^2 space allowance per pig from approximately 115 lb to a market weight of 250 lb. Pigs were removed individually each ...
  • Fitzner, G.E.; Nichols, David A.; Hancock, Joe D.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1991)
    Space allowances of 6, 8, 10, and 12 ft2 were evaluated for pigs fed from 120 to 250 lb. The management system used was to remove pigs individually as they reached 250 lb, which provided increasing space per pig. Using ...
  • Fitzner, G.E.; Nichols, David A.; Hancock, Joe D.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1991)

    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 ...
