  • Senne, B.W.; Mavromichalis, I.; Johnston, S.L.; Sorrell, P.S.; Kim, I.H.; Hines, Robert H.; Hancock, Joe D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1996)
    Two experiments were conducted to etermine the effects of sorghum-based distillers dried grains with solubles in isocaloric diets for nursery and finishing pigs. Rate and efficiency of gain in nursery pigs were decreased ...
  • Koch, B.A.; Smith, E.F.; Cox, R.F.; Richardson, D.; Walker, G.L. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1958)
    The steers used in this study were implanted with either stilbestrol or Synovex at the start of the wintering period. The results of the first 112 days of the wintering period were reported in Circular 349. This report ...
  • Koch, B.A.; Smith, E.F.; Cox, R.F.; Richardson, D.; Walker, G.L. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1958)
    This is the third test designed to study the value of stilbestrol implants for steer calves being fed a wintering-type ration. Synovex implants are being used for the second time. Both products are being used successfully to ...
  • Koch, B.A.; Smith, E.F.; Richardson, D.; McCarter, M.M. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1959)
    The steers used in this fattening trial were part of a larger group used in a wintering study reported on page 54 of Kansas Circular 358. At the beginning of the fattening period the ration was gradually changed from a ...
  • Koch, B.A.; Smith, E.F.; Richardson, D.; McCartor, M.M. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1958)
    Recent experimental work with chemical tranquilizers has indicated that these substances may be of value in the fattening ration of beef cattle under certain conditions. Theoretically at least, the chemical tranquilizers ...
  • Waylan, A.T.; Campbell, R.E.; Unruh, John A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1997)
    Ribeye tracings from 265 beef carcasses were used to compare ribeye areas from right and left sides. When video image analysis (VIA) was used to determine ribeye area, no difference (P=.48) was observed between right and ...
  • Warren, K.E.; Hunt, Melvin C.; Hague, M.A.; Kropf, Donald H.; Stroda, Sally L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1993)
    Outbreaks of food-borne illness have emphasized the need for proper cooking of ground beef patties. Because of difficulties in measuring internal temperature of ground beef patties, visual indicators usually are used ...
  • Richert, B.T.; Hines, Robert H.; Hancock, Joe D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1992)
    One hundred thirty-two weanling pigs, with an average age of 19 d and average weight of 8.4Ib, were used in a 28-d growth assay to determine the effects of replacing dried skim milk (DSM) with dried whey protein concentrate ...
  • Farran, T.B.; Hunter, R.D.; Montgomery, Sean P.; Sindt, J.J.; Blasi, Dale A.; Drouillard, James S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2001)
    One 28-day receiving experiment was conducted using 625 exotic × British cross heifers to evaluate growth performance and morbidity on receiving diets that contained either alfalfa hay or a pellet composed of 65% ...
  • Shoemaker, Candice A. (ISHS, 2010)
    Horticultural therapy and therapeutic horticulture programs often lack a clearly specified theoretical foundation or conceptual model, thus it is difficult to clearly articulate the outcomes a patient or client may experience ...
  • Heikes, K.A. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1986)
    For maximal genetic progress in a dairy, proven AI sires should be selected to use on replacement heifers. To minimize problems at calving, these sires should be selected from bulls that are breed average or better for ...
  • Marston, T.T.; Kreikemeier, K.K.; Wankel, L.E.; Huck, G.L.; Wistuba, T.J. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1999)
    Arsoy™ Soybean Feed is a by-product from the manufacture of soy protein isolate. It contains nearly 30% crude protein, but there is little documentation about its feeding value. Therefore, we fed basal growing diets ...
  • Nelssen, Jim L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1987)
    Biotechnology has developed a number of compounds that partition nutrients away from fat tissue deposition and towards lean (muscle) tissue accretion in swine. Two compounds that have received considerable research attention ...
  • Greig, J.K.; Spillman, C.K.; Koch, B.A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1980)
    Exhaust air from a Kansas State University swine finishing house provides CO2 and possible other gases that are used by vegetable plants. In addition, a rock storage system reduces fuel requirements of the greenhouse. ...
  • Groesbeck, C.N.; Lawrence, K.R.; Young, M.G.; Goodband, Robert D.; DeRouchey, Joel M.; Tokach, Michael D.; Nelssen, Jim L.; Dritz, Steven S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2002)
    Heart girth and body weight were measured on 100 growing-finishing pigs (50 to 273 lb) at the KSU Swine Teaching and Research Center. Heart girth, in inches, was measured using a cloth measuring tape. The tape was placed ...
  • Li, D.F.; Reddy, P.G.; Blecha, Frank; Klemm, R.D.; Nelssen, Jim L.; Goodband, Robert D.; Hancock, Joe D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1989)
