    Four hundred ninety-two acres of native bluestem range were divided into nine pastures for summer grazing by yearling steers. Five pastures were burned April 28; four were not burned. Burned and not burned pastures were ...
  • Berger, Loren Lynn; Harbers, L.H.; Schalles, R.R.; Smith, E.F.; Owensby, Clenton E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-03-04)
    Nine pastures totaling 492 acres were summer grazed by yearling Hereford steers. Five pastures were burned April 24, 1974; four were not burned. Burned and nonburned pastures had 0, 40, or 80 lbs. of nitrogen per ...
  • Schalles, R.R.; Spire, M.; Clarke, Colleen Kay (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 2010-12-15)
    Heavy milking cows took longer to respond to estrus synchronization than light milking cows. There was no difference in response time between cows treated with Estrumate and Lutalyse. Cow weight, height or condition had ...
  • Boyer, Matthew; Marshall, Jeremy
    Studying insects’ response to disturbance can tell us how these organisms survive in hostile environments. Studies have shown that soldier beetles can have different mating behaviors depending on the species around them ...
  • Harner, Joseph P.; Smith, John F., 1962-; Miller, W.F.; Cvetkovic, B.; Brouk, Michael J. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-12-01)
    Seven heat-stressed, lactating Holstein cows were exposed to six different cooling systems to evaluate the effects of air velocity and direction of airflow. Cows were arranged in a 7 × 7 Latin-square design. Six ...
  • Smith, John F., 1962-; Grigsby, K.; Brouk, Michael J. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-11-29)
    Forty lactating Holstein cows were allocated into groups of 5 cows each and assigned to 8 pens containing 10 freestalls each. Each group contained 3 heifers and 2 multiparous cows. Groups were balanced by milk production ...
  • Harner, Joseph P.; Smith, John F., 1962-; Miller, W.F.; Cvetkovic, B.; Brouk, Michael J. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-12-01)
    Lactating dairy cattle were used to evaluate three different cooling systems. Eight cows were arranged in a replicated Latinsquare design and assigned to each of four treatments. Treatments were control, lowpressure soaking ...
  • Rosenkrans, C.F.; Davis, Duane L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-04-15)
    Mixtures of vitamins and amino acids produced detrimental effects on the development of pig embryos. However, addition of three amino acids, phenylalanine, methionine, and isoleuncine, enhanced pig embryo development.
  • Vogt, Elizabeth A.; Nechols, James R. (2013-03-25)
    Laboratory experiments were conducted to quantify effects of resistant and susceptible host plants on the preimaginal and adult biologies of the squash bug, Anasa tristis (De Geer), and its egg parasitoid, Gryon pennsylvanicum ...
  • Anglin, C.O.; Epp, M.P.; Derstein, R.D.; Barnhardt, B.B.; Blasi, Dale A.; Olson, K. C.; Reinhardt, Christopher D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2009-12-14)
    Beef stocker operators are margin-operators, and rising feed costs force them to consider alternative feeding strategies to reduce production costs. Limit-feeding is a management technique that has positive implications ...
  • Reinhardt, Christopher D.; Lee, Tiffany L.; Thomson, Daniel U.; Mamedova, Laman K.; Bradford, Barry J. (2014-02-24)
    Background: During nutritional stress, reduced intake may reduce the efficacy of anabolic implants. This study was conducted to evaluate basic cellular responses to a growth promotant implant at two intake levels. Methods: ...
  • Hoffman, D.P.; Stevenson, Jeffrey S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-09-17)
    The suckling interaction between a cow and her calf is one of the factors that maintains a cow in postpartum anestrus (the period between calving and the beginning of first estrous cycle). Anestrus continues if the cow ...
  • Hoffman, D.P.; Stevenson, Jeffrey S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-10-05)
    The suckling interaction between a cow and her calf is one of the factors that maintains a cow in postpartum anestrus (the period between calving and the beginning of first estrous cycle). Anestrus continues if the cow ...
  • Allee, G.L.; Koch, B.A.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-05-07)
    Gestating Yorkshire sows and gilts were randomly assigned to two dietary treatments immediately after a 25-day breeding season until females were brought to the farrowing house between 105-110th day of gestation. Sows and ...
  • Arnett, A.M.; Daniel, M.J.; Dikeman, Michael E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2009-12-09)
    Marbling continues to be a major factor affecting profitability for beef producers, processors, retailers, and restaurateurs. However, feeding animals to ‘fatten’ is quite inefficient, requiring about 2.25 times more energy ...
  • Pruitt, R.; Fleck, A.; Smith, E.F.; Corah, L.; Owensby, Clenton E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-02-18)
    Reimplanting Ralgro in mid-July after implanting in late April did not improve daily summer gains compared to a single implant.
  • Simms, D.; Langemeier, Michael R.; Utter, S.; Fike, G.; Bandyk, C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-10-05)
    A survey of production levels and management practices of 205 cow herds representing over 26,000 cows in Kansas was conducted in 1991. These operations were located throughout Kansas except for the Northwest corner. ...
  • Corah, L.; Schwartz, F.; Brazle, F.; Orwig, T.; Francis, G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-03-04)
    To encourage greater use of implants in beef cattle industry in Kansas, 62 implant demonstrations were conducted in 31 different counties in Kansas. 1,402 implanted suckling calves gained an average of 15.1 pounds more ...
  • Aubel, C.E. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2012-02-16)
    In order to produce swine profitably, it is necessary to make use of forage crops. This practice will not only save grain, but will contribute to the general health of the swine themselves. Since the country has been at ...
