  • Koch, B.A.; Smith, E.F.; Cox, R.F.; Richardson, D.; Walker, G.L. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1959)
    The steers used in this fattening trial were part of a larger group used in a wintering trial reported on page 46 of Kansas Circular 358. At the beginning of the fattening period the ration was gradually changed from a ...
  • Smith, E.F.; Koch, B.A.; Carmack, B.D.; Boren, Fred W. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1960)
    The Hereford steer calves used in this experiment were assigned to experimental lots randomly according to weight. They originated near Paducah, Texas, and graded USDA Good as feeders. All received the same basic ration ...
  • Wheat, J.D.; Menzies, C.S.; Holland, L.A. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1956)
    This study was to determine the response of young guinea pigs to stilbestrol added to the basic ration of ground oats, tankage, bonemeal, ground alfalfa hay, and freshly-cut, green alfalfa. Eight litters of guinea pigs, ...
  • Frobose, H. L.; Gourley, K. M.; Tokach, Michael D.; DeRouchey, Joel M.; Dritz, Steven S.; Goodband, Robert D.; Nelssen, Jim L.; Davis, Duane L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2013)
    A total of 53 sows were used to determine the effects of a lactational estrus stimulation strategy on reproductive and litter growth performance. Treatment differences within parity group, multiparous and primiparous, ...
  • Held, R.; Riley, Jack G.; Owensby, Clenton E.; Smith, E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1984)
    Native bluestem pastures were grazed from May 16 to July 14, 1983 by steers with an average beginning weight of 545lbs., at stocking rates of 1.82, 1.5, and 1.25 acres per steer. Daily gains for the high and low stocking ...
  • Held, R.; Smith, E.F.; Riley, Jack G.; Owensby, Clenton E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1982)
    Native bluestem pastures were grazed by 520-lb steers from April 30 to July 14 at stocking rates of 1.7, 1.3 and 1.1 acres per steer. Daily gain of the steers was about the same for the two heavier stocking rates, but was ...
  • 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)
