  • Murphy, James P.; Harner, Joseph P. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-02-19)
    Composting dead animals from a swine production facility offers an environmentally sound disposal method to many producers
  • Laudert, S.B. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-12-01)
    Feedlot heifers implanted once with either Compudose® or Synovex-H® performed similarly, with daily gains of 3.16 vs 3.27 lbs, respectively. Compudose retention in the ear was 97.5%. Implant site abscess rate was 2.5% for ...
  • Laudert, S.; Eder, J.; Kuhl, Gerry L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-01-27)
    Compudose implanted feedlot steers performed similarly to steers initially implanted with Ralgro and reimplanted with Synovex-S. Steers lost 2.9% of the Compudose implants.
  • Laudert, S.B.; Lee, R.W. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-12-01)
    Three field trials were conducted with finishing yearling steers to compare the performance of cattle receiving Compudose® or Ralgro®/Synovex-S® and Synovex-S®/Synovex-S® reimplant combinations. No differences were found ...
  • Breiner, S.J.; Grau, S.A.; Barnhardt, B.B.; Bryant, A.M.; Boone, Kris; Blasi, Dale A.; Schroeder, Ted C.; Breiner, Ryan M. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-01-21)
    While the world continues to evolve toward enhanced computer and Internet usage, the agricultural arena has been slower to follow. The objective of this survey was to examine the computer utilization practices of cow-calf ...
  • Blair, R.M.; Nichols, David A.; Davis, Duane L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-02-11)
    In Exp. 1, weight change, backfat thickness, and litter size were compared for gilts fed individually or with a computer-controlled electronic sow feeder provided by Osborne Ind., Inc. and NEDAP-Poiesz, B.V. Twenty ...

    Accurate and concise heat loss analysis is available through a computer program to help producers. The economic benefit of insulating a new structure or increasing the insulation level of each of the building parts (ceiling, ...
  • Dial, Gary (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-04-15)
    Swine production has become, in a relatively short time, one of the most competitive agribusinesses. The increase in international exportation of pork, dynamic changes in the efficiency of hog production, and the increasing ...
  • Menzies, C.S.; Richardson, D.; Cox, R.F. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-10-03)
    One hundred fifty-white faced New Mexico wether lambs were used. Lambs were shorn and drenched with phenothiazine before starting on test. Two weeks after the lambs arrived from the range an outbreak of coccidiosis occurred. ...
  • Pulley, Stephanie L.; Keisler, D. H.; Hill, Scott L.; Stevenson, Jeffrey S. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2014-03-26)
    The objective of this study was to determine the incidence of spontaneous and gonadotropinreleasing hormone (GnRH)-induced surges of luteinizing hormone (LH) and ovulatory responses in lactating dairy cows enrolled in a ...
  • Stewart, R.E.; Mee, M.O.; Stevenson, Jeffrey S. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2012-09-20)
    We conducted two experiments to determine the effects of administering human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) on day 4 or on days 15, 16, and 17 after estrus on conception rates and progesterone secretion by the corpus luteum ...
  • Ames, D.R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-03-04)
    Nutrient requirements for domestic animals (NRC) published by the National Research Council are the best estimates available. For beef cattle, specific tables are listed for animals of different weights and for various ...
  • Stevenson, Jeffrey S.; Thompson, K. E.; Kobayashi, Y. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2011-07-22)
    Two experiments were conducted to measure conception and pregnancy rates in lactating dairy cows after various treatments followed by artificial insemination (AI) after detected estrus or at one fixed time. In Experiment ...
  • DeBenedetti, R.C.; Kiracofe, G.H.; Ward, H.S.; McKee, R.M. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-03-04)
    One hundred seven of 112 heifers were in estrus 1 to 5 days after an injection of prostaglandin F2α given when a 7-day synchronization implant was removed. Checks for estrus were made every four hours and heifers were ...
  • Corah, L.R.; Beal, W.E.; Spire, M.F.; Stevenson, Jeffrey S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-11-02)
    Injecting a GnRH-analog at the time of estrus or at insemination did not generally improve conception rates in heifers inseminated following a synchronized estrus. However, within some herds. a significant positive response ...
  • Murphy, P. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-04-19)
    Shall I remodel or burn it down? Determining an answer to this question requires careful consideration of construction costs and production goals. When considering a particular building - consider the following:
