  • Schroeder, Ted C. (North American Institute for Beef Economic Research; Kansas State University Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2009)
    Distillers grain (DG) production in the US has increased from less than 5 million metric tons at the start of the decade to more than 20 million metric tons in 2008. This rapidly expanding market has increased the ...
  • Black, P.L.; Parsons, G.L.; Shelor, M.K.; Karges, K.K.; Gibson, M.L.; Dikeman, Michael E.; Smith, J. Scott; Drouillard, James S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2009)
    Distillers grains are a by-product of ethanol production and have become increasingly available in recent years. Some research has revealed negative effects of distillers grains on quality and yield grades. Distillers ...
  • Van Winkle, T.W.; Schroeder, Ted C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2008)
    The substantial increase in corn use by the ethanol refinery industry (Figure 1) has resulted in livestock producers, especially cattle feeders, substituting distiller’s grain (DG) for corn in feed rations. DG futures ...
  • Gomez-Montano, L.; Jumpponen, Ari M.; Gonzales, M. A.; Cusicanqui, J.; Valdivia, C.; Motavalli, P.; Herman, Michael A.; Garrett, Karen A. (2013)
    This record provides supplemental material for this article: Gomez-Montano, L., A. Jumpponen, M. A. Gonzales, J. Cusicanqui, C. Valdivia, P. Motavalli, M. Herman, and K. A. Garrett. 2013. Do bacterial and fungal communities ...
  • Wondra, K.J.; Hines, Robert H.; Hancock, Joe D.; Behnke, Keith C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1993)
    The effects of supplemental buffers in finely ground diets were determined in two experiments. In Exp. 1, 128 pigs (123 lb average initial body wt) were fed a cornsoybean meal-based diet (488 μm mean particle size for ...
  • Davis, Duane L.; Scmidt, W.E.; Stevenson, Jeffrey S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1982)
    Injecting gilts with 10 cc’s combiotic at artificial insemination did not improve farrowing rate or litter size.
  • Wondra, K.J.; Kennedy, G.A.; Hines, Robert H.; Hancock, Joe D.; Behnke, Keith C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1992)
    One hundred and sixty pigs, with an average initial wt of 121 lb, were used in an experiment to determine the effects of diet form and particle size on growth performance and nutrient digestibility. The pigs were ...
  • Davis, Duane L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1991)
    Fertility was evaluated in sows fed 4 vs 10 lb/d and gilts fed 4 vs 7.4 Ibid during the first 10 days after breeding. No effects on farrowing rate or litter traits were detected. This confirms results of a previous KSU ...
  • Nemechek, J.E.; 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, 2010)
    A total of 320 weanling pigs (PIC 1050 barrows, initially 12.6 lb and 21 d of age) were used in a 35-d trial to determine whether the lysine level fed during 1 phase in the nursery influences the response to dietary ...
  • Koster, H.H.; Cochran, R.C.; Vanzant, E.S.; St Jean, G.; Titgemeyer, Evan C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1994)
    Five ruminally and duodenally fistulated Angus × Hereford cows were fed dormant tallgrass-prairie forage ad libitum to monitor intake and fermentation responses associated with providing increasing amounts of supplemental ...
  • Gramlich, S.M.; Brandt, Robert T., Jr.; Pope, Ronald V. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1990)
    A trial with 100 head of crossbred steers (avg wt 879 lb) was conducted to determine the effects of tallow (none, 2, 4, 6, 8% of ration dry matter) on the performance and carcass characteristics of finishing cattle fed ...
  • Healy, B.J.; Hancock, Joe D.; Fung, Daniel Y. C.; Liang, C.; Yu, S.L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1989)
    Two 5-wk experiments, using a total of 270 pigs (avg initial wt of 16.1 and 13.11b), were conducted to determine the dose-response relationship between Streptococcus faecium additions to drinking water and performance of ...
  • Miller, K.A.; Van Bibber-Krueger, C.L.; Drouillard, James S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2013)
    Bovine respiratory disease is the leading cause of cattle mortalities in U.S. feedlots. In addition to costs associated with death loss and medical treatments, cattle affected by respiratory disease typically have ...
  • Miller, K.A.; Van Bibber-Krueger, C.L.; Aperce, C.C.; Alvarado, C.A.; Drouillard, James S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2013)
    High-concentrate diets consisting of cereal grains and grain byproducts have high energy density compared with forage-based diets. To avoid digestive disorders, cattle must be adapted to concentrates, which often entails ...
  • Stevenson, Jeffrey S.; Call, Edward P.; Scoby, R.K.; Phatak, A.P. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1988)
    An experiment was conducted in one Kansas and five California dairy herds to determine if double inseminations with and without treatment with 100 µg gonadotropinreleasing hormone (GnRH) would improve conception rates ...
