    In the lamb-feeding tests at the Garden City Branch Station during the 1953-54 feeding season, one lot of 48 lambs was given stilbestrol implants of varying sizes at the beginning of the feeding period. Another lot of ...
  • Loughmiller, J.A.; Spire, M.F.; Hogge, S.B.; James, B.W.; Tokach, Michael D.; Nelssen, Jim L.; Goodband, Robert D.; Dritz, Steven S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2000)
    Eighty barrows were used in two experiments to determine the relationship between feed intake or dietary energy concentration and mean body surface temperature (MBST) and mean body surface radiant heat loss (MBSL) as ...

    The ability of the Kamar Heatmount Detector to identify cows ready for insemination 80 hours after two Lutalyse injections was tested with 439 beef cows and heifers. The detector was placed on the rump at the second injection ...
  • Waylan, A.T.; Campbell, R.E.; Unruh, John A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1999)
    Thirty beef carcasses were used to test the accuracy of three regression equations to predict ribeye area (REA) and to compare several strategies to rapidly estimate REAs. Linear measurements, USDA grids, and Video ...
  • Baker, F.H.; Richardson, D.; Harris, J.O.; Cox, R.F.; Bowman, O.M. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1955)
    Forty head of choice-quality steer calves were used in the wintering phase of this test. These calves were part of a shipment from the Lonker Ranch, Medicine Lodge, Kan. The steers were assigned to lots on the basis of ...
  • Richardson, D.; Baker, F.H.; Harris, J.O.; Smith, E.F.; Cox, R.F.; Bowman, O.M. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1956)
    The rumen, or paunch, of cattle and sheep normally contains innumerable microorganisms. It has long been recognized that these microscopic organisms help break down complex carbohydrates such as fiber and help synthesize ...
  • Aubel, C.E. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1948)
    At the Livestock Feeders' Day last year, data were presented on the use of loose salt in swine fattening rations when the pigs were self-fed free choice a ration of shelled corn, tankage, and alfalfa hay. It was shown ...
  • Aubel, C.E. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1947)
    The Department of Animal Husbandry has recently received a number of requests for information on the need of salt for fattening pigs when the ration was corn and tankage with alfalfa hay or pasture. The answer to ...
  • Cochran, R.C.; Vanzant, E.S.; Brandt, Robert T., Jr.; Owensby, Clenton E.; Auen, Lisa M. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1992)
    A 4-year experiment was conducted to evaluate the effect of increasing amounts of grain supplementation on steer gains and forage production in pastures managed under an intensive-early stocking system. Average daily ...
  • Nelson, E.A.; Smith, W.H.; Menzies, C.S. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1958)
    The experimental sheep used in conjunction with studies of summer fertility of sheep at the Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station consist of a commercial flock of approximately 136 head of western ewes of three predominant ...
  • Stevenson, Jeffrey S.; Pursley, J. R. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1993)
    Holstein cows milked twice daily were assigned to be inseminated at their first detected estrus (control) after 42 days in milk or received PGFza (PG) after 42 days, if they had a high milk progesterone (P4) test on ...
  • Aubel, C.E. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1947)
    Protein supplements are essential to profitable pork production whether it be the maintenance of the breeding herd, growing the pigs, or fattening pigs for market. Previous tests at this station have shown the advantage and ...
  • Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1977)
    Two feeding trials involving 112 Yorkshire weaned pigs (25 lbs.) were conducted to study the use of oats and fat in grower rations. Adding 3% fat (soy oil) to the fortified corn-soybean control ration reduced daily feed ...
  • Sabah, J.R.; Harshavardhan, T.; Marsden, James L.; Fung, Daniel Y. C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2002)
