  • Terui, H.; Morrill, J.L.; Higgins, James J. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1994)
    Total mixed rations (TMR) with different forage (F):concentrate (C) ratios were fed to Holstein heifers (n = 135) 12 to 24 wk of age. In four trials, the heifers were divided into different age groups and fed three ...
  • Harner, Joseph P.; Murphy, James P.; Smith, J.F. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service., 1998)
    Flushing characteristics of a tower tank valve flushing system with a 12-inch-diameter manual valve were determined. Data were obtained using the outside cow alleys in a fourrow freestall barn. The alleys were 12 ft ...
  • Bartley, E.E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1981)
    Liquid supplement manufacturers must provide a product that is effectively utilized and is nontoxic. Toxicity can be reduced if the supplement's pH is below 3.8, but low pH alone does not improve nutritive value. A good ...
  • Simms, D.; Kuhl, G.; Brethour, J. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1984)
    In two trials conducted at the Fort Hays Experiment Station, symptoms of toxicity (hyperexcitability, circling, convulsions, death) were observed in several newborn calves (l to 14 days of age) nursing cows consuming ...
  • Schoneweis, D.A.; Allee, G.L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1975)
    Thirty-one litters were used to compare effects of two levels of trace minerals fed dams during gestation on hemoglobin, performance, and health of neonatal pigs. There were no significant differences in number of pigs ...
  • Schoneweis, D.A.; Allee, G.L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1976)
    We compared the effects of two levels of trace minerals fed dams during gestation on the hemoglobin, packed cell volume, performance, and health of 31 litters of neonatal pigs. The dams had been on concrete all of their ...
  • Koch, B.A.; Smith, E.F.; Richardson, D.; McCartor, M.M. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1962)
    Previous data reported from this station seem to indicate that supplemental dietary trace minerals may be valuable under certain feeding conditions. Those data also indicated that trace minerals might be related to weight ...
  • McCarter, M.M.; Koch, B.A.; Smith, E.F.; Richardson, D. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1961)
    Previous data collected at this station seem to indicate that supplementary dietary trace minerals may be of value under certain feeding regimes. This trial also was designed to obtain further information on the value of ...
  • Barnhardt, B.B.; Bryant, A.M.; Epp, M.P.; Spire, M.F.; Blasi, Dale A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2007)
    One of the challenges regarding implementation of a national animal identification system is the logistics of reading and reporting EID (electronic identification) tag numbers as cattle move through the production cycle. ...
  • Oppert, Brenda; Dowd, Scot E.; Bouffard, Pascal; Li, Lewyn; Conesa, Ana; Lorenzen, Marce´ D.; Toutges, Michelle; Marshall, Jeremy; Huestis, Diana L.; Fabrick, Jeff; Oppert, Cris; Jurat- Fuentes, Juan Luis (2012)
    Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt) crystal (Cry) proteins are effective against a select number of insect pests, but improvements are needed to increase efficacy and decrease time to mortality for coleopteran pests. To gain ...
  • Mithila, J.; Hall, J. Christopher (2013)
    Auxinic herbicides are widely used in agriculture to selectively control broadleaf weeds. Prolonged use of auxinic herbicides has resulted in the evolution of resistance to these herbicides in some biotypes of Brassica ...
  • Thulin, A.J.; Allee, G.L.; Harmon, D.L.; Schoneweis, D.A.; Davis, Duane L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1985)
    The transfer across the swine uterus and placenta of [1-14C] octanoic acid, [9,10(n)- H] palmitic acid, and [1- 14C] linoleic acid was studied in five gilts and their fetuses during late gestation, following a single bolus ...
  • Li, D.F.; Reddy, G.; Blecha, Frank; Hancock, Joe D.; Allee, G.; Nelssen, Jim L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1988)
    An experiment was conducted to determine if baby pigs develop intestinal hypersensitivity to dietary soy protein. Challenging nursery pigs with soybean meal following oral infusion of soybean meal from day 7 to day 14 of ...
  • Shirley, John E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2003)
    Dairy cows are generally provided with a 60-day dry period. The first part of the dry period is called the “far-off dry period” beginning at dry off and continuing until 21 days before projected calving date. The second ...
  • Khang, Chang Hyun; Berruyer, Romain; Giraldo, Martha C.; Kankanala, Prasanna; Park, Sook-Young; Czymmek, Kirk; Kang, Seogchan; Valent, Barbara (2010)
    Knowledge remains limited about how fungal pathogens that colonize living plant cells translocate effector proteins inside host cells to regulate cellular processes and neutralize defense responses. To cause the globally ...
