  • Loughmiller, J.A.; Kim, I.H.; Woodworth, J.C.; Smith, J.W.II; Bergstrom, J.R.; Hongtrakul, K.; Nessmith, W.B.; Musser, R.E.; Nelssen, Jim L.; Goodband, Robert D.; Tokach, Michael D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1996)
    In Exp. 1, increasing dietary lysine from .40% to .70% linearly improved ADG, F/G, 10th rib fat depth, and percentage lean in finishing gilts from 200 to 250 lb. Increasing dietary lysine also tended to improve longissimus ...
  • Owen, K.Q.; Richert, B.T.; Friesen, K.G.; Smith, J.W. II; Bergstrom, J.R.; Nelssen, Jim L.; Goodband, Robert D.; Tokach, Michael D.; Dritz, Steven S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1994)
    A total of 320 (160 barrows and 160 gilts) 14- to 18-d-old pigs (initially 10.2 ± 2.2 lb) was used to determine the optimal level of dietary lysine needed for the segregated early-weaned pig. Two diet formulation methods ...
  • Loughmiller, J.A.; Tokach, Michael D.; Titgemeyer, Evan C.; Bergstrom, J.R.; Kim, I.H.; Smith, J.W.II; Nessmith, W.B.; Nelssen, Jim L.; Goodband, Robert D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1996)
    In Exp. 1, increasing dietary methionine from .12 to .22% (.10 to .20% apparent digestible methionine) in diets containing excess cystine had no effect on ADG, ADFI, 10th rib fat depth, and longissimus muscle area in ...
  • Bradford, Barry J.; Titgemeyer, Evan C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2008)
    Milk fat depression remains a problem on dairy farms, and in recent years, incorporation of distillers grains (typically with solubles added and often dried) has contributed to this problem on some farms. In this study, ...
  • Titgemeyer, Evan C.; Bradford, Barry J. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2009)
    Molasses has long been used in animal feeds for palatability and as a binding agent to ensure uniform consumption of essential nutrients. Recent work with molasses in highly fermentable diets has revealed that molasses ...
  • Koch, B.A.; Parrish, D.B. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1964)
    Nitrates are known to harm animals when ingested under certain conditions. Previous work here indicated that a higher level of dietary nitrate might interfere with carotene conversion to Vitamin A. This trial attempted to ...
  • Balogun, T.F.; Koch, B.A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1976)
    Twenty-four crossbred barrows and gilts averaging 92 lbs. were used to evaluate whole shelled peanut as a protein and energy source for pigs. Pigs used whole peanuts and corn less efficiently than ground peanuts and corn. ...
  • Uwituze, S.; Hollis, Larry C.; Drouillard, James S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2011)
    We previously reported that elevated concentrations of dietary sulfur (0.65% sulfur, dry basis) in finishing diets containing dried distillers grains with solubles decreased dry matter intake and average daily gains of ...
  • Loughmiller, J.A.; Tokach, Michael D.; Titgemeyer, Evan C.; Kim, I.H.; Bergstrom, J.R.; Smith, J.W.II; Goodband, Robert D.; Nelssen, Jim L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1996)
    Finishing gilts (initially 163 lb) were fed .58% total lysine (.50% apparent digestible) and total sulfur amino acid (TSAA) concentrations of .26,.285, .31, .335, and .36% (.225 to .325% apparent digestible). These values ...

  • McCartor, M.M.; Koch, B.A.; Smith, E.F.; Richardson, D.; Cox, R.F. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1962)
    Hereford steers used in this study were fed in outdoor dirt lots without shelter. Each steer in lot 23, described in a trace-mineral study reported elsewhere in this publication, received a 24-mg. implant of diethylstilbestrol ...
  • Schulte, K.M.; Dhuyvetter, Kevin C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2009)
    The financial bottom line, or net income, is a key factor in determining how successful a dairy has been historically as well as an indicator of the financial ease or struggles the dairy might have in the future. What ...
  • Eidson, S.; Langemeier, Michael R.; Jones, R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1998)
    Beef cow producers must manage costs of production and improve production efficiency to compete with hog and poultry and other beef cattle producers. A sample of 46 beef cow enterprises from the Kansas Farm Management ...
  • Wankel, L.E.; Marston, T.T.; Stokka, G.L.; Rozell, Timothy G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2000)
    Immunoglobulin G1 (IgG1) serum concentrations are used to evaluate passive transfer of immunity in neonatal calves. Total serum proteins also can be measured to evaluate calf health. If IgG1 and total serum protein ...
  • Smith, E.F.; Anderson, K.L.; Drake, C.L.; Boren, Fred W. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1964)
