  • Baker, F.H.; Smith, E.F.; Richardson, D.; Cox, R.F. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1957)
    An experiment previously conducted at this station demonstrated that beef heifers fed a completely pelleted ration made inferior gains, and had significantly lower carcass grades and dressing percentages than heifers fed ...
  • Bramel-Cox, P.J.; Hancock, Joe D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1991)
    Sorghum grain is an extremely important crop to both farmers and livestock feeders in the High-Plains states (e.g., from Nebraska to Texas). Kansas leads the nation in sorghum production, and as should be expected, ...
  • Koch, B.A.; Smith, E.F.; Richardson, D.; Cox, R.F.; Smith, J.; Boren, Fred W. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1959)
    One of the major problems confronting cattlemen is control of the occurrence of respiratory diseases such as shipping fever, colds, nasal congestion. and pneumonia. These respiratory conditions are especially troublesome ...
  • Estrada, J.; Shirley, John E. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1989)
    We all have heard about the use of BST in lactating dairy cattle during the last 6 to 8 years, but what is BST? Bovine somatotropin is another dairy management tool developed to improve the efficiency and reduce the cost ...
  • Smith, E.F.; Cox, R.F.; Good, D.L.; Mackintosh, D.L. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1951)
    The purpose of this study is to develop a system of fattening heifers for feeders who do not have native pasture or have no pasture. The plan of production is to buy good quality heifer calves in the fall, winter them well ...
  • Holz, J.P.; Houghton, P.L.; Spire, M.F. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1993)
    Gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) was administered to a group of 13- to 14- month-old Angus and Angus crossbred repeat-breeding heifers at the time of the second or third artificial insemination to determine ...
  • Wheat, J.D.; Yu, T.; Schalles, R.R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1970)
    As early as 1926, Danish workers reported that cross-breeding gave larger litters at weaning that gained faster on less feed per pound of gain. Crossbreeding is now used extensively in market hog production. It uses heterosis ...
  • Barbosa, F.F.; Tokach, Michael D.; DeRouchey, Joel M.; Goodband, Robert D.; Nelssen, Jim L.; Dritz, Steven S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2008)
    A total of 3,186 pigs were used in two 21-d experiments to evaluate growth performance of nursery pigs fed different levels of dried distillers grains with soluble (DDGS) or soybean hulls. In each experiment, pigs (n = ...
  • Hastad, C.W.; Groesbeck, C.N.; Lawrence, K.R.; Lenehan, N.A.; Keegan, T.P.; Tokach, Michael D.; Nelssen, Jim L.; Goodband, Robert D.; DeRouchey, Joel M.; Dritz, Steven S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2003)
    A large increase in the number of ethanol plants has lead to increased availability of dried distiller’s grains with solubles (DDGS). New plants also have improved processing techniques, which makes DDGS more attractive ...
  • Dawson, D.P.; Morrill, J.L.; Reddy, P.G.; Behnke, Keith C. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1987)
    Oil-extracted, desolveritized soy flour without additional heat treatment was used to prepare protein supplements for calf milk replacers by extrusion processing. Various combinations of temperature, moisture, calcium ...
  • Kobayashi, Y.; Stevenson, Jeffrey S. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1994)
    Holstein cows and virgin heifers were treated with GnRH and PGF in a novel 2a ovulation synchronization protocol, which involves one fixed-time insemination. One injection of GnRH is given on a Monday morning, followed ...
  • Broweleit, B.; Huston, J.E.; Grum, D.E.; Day, M.L.; Johnson, Sandra K. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2000)
    We examined the potential of adding gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) to a synchrony system based on melengestrol acetate-prostaglandin F2(MGA-PGF2) to increase the precision of synchronized estrus and augment ...
  • Friesen, K.G.; Schinckel, A.P.; Nelssen, Jim L.; Goodband, Robert D.; Tokach, Michael D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1994)
    Conventional response criteria for amino acid research include mean live weight gain and tissue accretion rates over a given weight interval. However, these methods fail to characterize the changing response of tissue ...
  • Bell, T.D.; Smith, W.H.; Erhart, A.B.; Gardner, A.W.; Mackintosh, D.L.; Soule, R. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1955)
    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 ...
  • Kiracofe, G.H.; Heekin, M.; Odde, Kenneth G.; King, M. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1981)
    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 ...
