  • Smith, E.F.; Riley, Jack G.; Owensby, Clenton E.; Schalles, R.R.; Graber, Ronald W. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1985)
    Native bluestem pastures were grazed from May 8 to July 18, 1984 by steers with an average beginning weight of 553 lb, at stocking rates of 1.7, 1.5, and 1.25 acres per steer. Gains per acre were higher (P<.01) with ...
  • Cochran, R.; Smith, E.F.; Owensby, Clenton E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1988)
    Based on a six-year study, stocking at 2.5x and 3.0x normal season-long rates for the first half of the growing season with no grazing during the latter half results in individual steer gains that are equal to those under ...
  • Held, R.; Smith, E.F.; Riley, Jack G.; Owensby, Clenton E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1983)
    Native bluestem pastures were grazed from May 10 to July 15, 1982 by steers averaging 599 lbs, at stocking rates 1.82, 1.5, 1.2 acres per steer. Daily gains were similar for all rates, but gain per acre increased with ...
  • Taylor, R.K.; Kueck, D.L.; Addison, C.E.; Blasi, Dale A.; Maxwell, Thomas M.; Shroyer, James P. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1993)
    Net- and twine-wrapped alfalfa hay bales were stored from July, 1990 to April, 1991 in three Kansas counties (Reno, Saline, and Stafford). Dry matter losses and changes in acid detergent fiber and acid detergent ...
  • Cropp, B. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1994)
    Profitable dairying will not become any easier in the future. Farm level milk prices will continue to be volatile. The government will not provide additional price or income support to dairies. Long-run milk prices ...
  • Wheat, J.D.; Kropf, Donald H.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1977)
    Duroc swine selected for muscling seemingly are more susceptible to stress than are ordinary pigs. The highly significant difference in serum creatine phosphokinase (CPK) levels (an average score of 30.07) in those pigs ...
  • Aubel, C.E. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1950)
    There has been much discussion in Kansas as to the desirability of using the Minnesota No. 1 breed of swine for crossing on other breeds. Consequently a few years ago one of these boards was secured for this purpose. In ...
  • Aubel, C.E. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1953)
    There has been much discussion in Kansas as to the desirability of cross-breeding inbred breeds (so-called hybrids) with other breeds. Consequently, a Beltsville No.1 (Poland x Landrace origin) was secured and matings ...
  • Anthony, H.D.; Kelley, D.C.; Nelson, D.L.; Smith, E.F.; Wearden, S.; Boren, Fred W. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1961)
    This is the second year in which an attempt was made to determine some basic facts related to shipping fever and shipping shrink in weaned stocker calves. As in the previous years, the calves used in this study were from ...
  • McCoy, J.; Nason, P.; Chung, D.; Kastner, Curtis L.; Lawrence, A.; Dikeman, Michael E.; Hunt, Melvin C.; Kropf, Donald H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1980)
    Nearly all steer and heifer beef carcasses processed in the United, States are chilled before cutting. However, recent meat science research has shown that carcasses can be processed, and quality of meat maintained, with ...
  • Hagele, K.; Dikeman, Michael E.; Hunt, Melvin C.; Kastner, Curtis L.; Kropf, Donald H.; Lyon, M. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1980)
    Hot processing is gaining increased interest in the beef processing industry today because of the previously mentioned processing efficiencies and economic advantages. This study examined the color and eating characteristics of ...
  • Bell, F.W.; Mackintosh, D.L.; Pickett, A.G. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1949)
    This is a study of the characteristics of feeder calves which are associated with differences in: 1. Rate of gain. 2. Kind and amount of feeds required to make gain. 3. Value of the carcass. The two lots of calves ...
  • 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)
