    Feedlot performance of 207 steers with various percentages of Angus, Hereford, Charolais, Brahman, and Gelbvieh breeding were compared at a constant 1) days fed, 2) adjusted carcass backfat, and 3) slaughter weight. ...
  • Brethour, J.R.; Patterson, D.; Olson, K.; Corah, L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-11-12)
    Steer calves that were 75 percent Hereford and either 25 percent Angus (BWF) or Brahman (BRX) were compared in a feedlot study that involved either high-concentrate or high-silage finishing rations. The BRX steers gained ...

  • Smith, E.F.; Richardson, D.; Westmeyer, H.W.; Boren, Fred W. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-05-04)
    This test compares steer weight gains on four bluestem pastures to determine whether differences among the pastures might influence steer performance. Other than being in different pastures, all steers were treated and fed ...
  • Narayanan, Sanjeev K.; Okwumabua, O.; Staats, J.; Oberst, Richard D.; Nagaraja, Tiruvoor G.; Chengappa, M. M. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-09-02)
    DNA finger printing (restriction fragment length polymorphism analysis) was employed to genetically compare Fusobacterium necrophorum isolates of liver abscesses, ruminal wall, and ruminal contents from the same animal. ...
  • Pollmann, D.S.; Smith, J.E.; Stevenson, Jeffrey S.; Schoneweis, D.A.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-04-30)
    Gleptosil, a commercial iron product, was compared with iron dextran for the prevention of iron deficiency anemia in young pigs. Using 26 litters, pigs (within each litter) were randomly allotted to one of the three ...
  • Bortone, E.J.; Daccarett, M. G.; Morrill, J.L.; Feyerherm, A.M.; Shirley, John E. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-05-25)
    One hundred and ten Holstein heifers from the KSU Dairy Research Unit were used in this experiment. They were fed either 100% (control) or 115% (enhanced) of NRC requirements for energy, protein, major minerals, and ...
  • Daccarett, M. G.; Morrill, J.L. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2012-09-07)
    One hundred and one Holstein heifers from the KSU Dairy Unit were used in this experiment. They were assigned to two treatments in which they were fed either 100% or 115% of the 1988 NRC requirements of energy, protein, ...
  • Iwasawa, T.; Young, M.G.; Keegan, T.P.; Tokach, Michael D.; Goodband, Robert D.; DeRouchey, Joel M.; Nelssen, Jim L.; Dritz, Steven S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2009-10-20)
    In previous Swine Day Reports we have demonstrated that feeding sows in gestation on the basis of body weight and backfat thickness is more precise and economical than methods of feeding based on visual observation of ...
  • Smith, E.F.; Mackintosh, D.L.; Weber, A.D. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2012-01-25)
    The project involves comparisons of steer calves sired by small, medium, and large size bulls at each of the three stations under three standard systems of feeding and management. System I, immediate full feeding for 225 ...
  • Weber, A.D.; Pickett, A.G.; Mackintosh, D.L. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2012-01-25)
