  • Bartley, E.E.; Riddell, D.O.; Arambel, M.A.; Dennis, S.M. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1983)
    Benefits have been shown under certain conditions when niacin is added to the diets of beef cattle, dairy cattle or sheep. We attempted to find out what effects added niacin has on the rumen fermentation, and conversely, ...
  • Cox, R.F.; Sloan, L.H. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1946)
    A number of years of lamb feeding experimental work involving grain comparisons, roughage comparisons, roughage comparisons and proportions of concentrates to roughage, conducted at the Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station ...
  • Heer, William F.; Blasi, Dale A.; Fjell, Dale L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1993)
    Six summer annuals and three forage sorghums were evaluated for forage yield and quality under south central Kansas dryland conditions. When cut in the late boot to early heading stage, all forage types (millet, ...
  • Blasi, Dale A.; Fjell, Dale L.; Shroyer, James P.; Kuhl, G.L.; Heer, William F. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1991)
    Six, summer annual forages and three forage sorghums were evaluated for forage yield and quality under south central Kansas dryland conditions. The sudans and forage sorghums produced similar amounts of dry matter ...
  • Bolsen, K.; Ilg, H.; Axe, D.; Thompson, W. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1980)
    Sudangrass, pearl millet, sorghum-sudangrass, and forage sorghum silages and sorghum-sudan hay were full-fed to yearling steers in a 90-day trial. Forage sorghum was harvested in the dough stage; the other four forages, ...
  • Blanco-Canqui, Humberto; Claassen, M. M.; Presley, DeAnn R. (2012)
    Impact of cover crops (CCs) on winter wheat [Triticum aestivum (L.)] and grain sorghum [Sorghum bicolor (L.) yields is not well understood. We assessed crop yield and its relationships with CC-induced changes in soil ...
  • Eckerle, G.J.; Pacheco, L.A.; Olson, K. C.; Jaeger, John R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2011)
    Sericea lespedeza (Lespedeza cuneata) is a noxious weed that infests approximately 600,000 acres of native tallgrass range in Kansas. Intake of sericea lespedeza by grazing livestock is poor, presumably as a result of ...
  • Fitzner, G.E.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1988)
    Two hundred forty pigs were used to evaluate the use of various amounts (0, 10, 15, 20, 25%) of black sunflower oil seeds in weanling pig diets. After 14 days, no significant differences were found between any of the dietary ...
