  • Harbers, L.H.; Ward, G.M.; Kahrs, A.J. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1983)
    Alfalfa, clovers, soybean meal and cottonseed meal have part of their calcium tied up as insoluble calcium oxalate. The oxalate crystals are relatively unavailable to animals and could be an important consideration in ...
  • Greer, J.G.; Davis, Duane L.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1977)
    Forty-two boars averaging 67 lbs. were used to study how various levels of calcium and phosphorus in their feed affected their development. Calcium-to phosphorus ratios of 1.2 to 1 were maintained in all treatment diets, ...
  • Harbers, L.H.; Teague, R.D.; Riley, Jack G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1975)
    When calcium chloride was added to a mixture of minerals and urea in molasses, the minerals had not settled after the mixture was shipped 350 miles and stored 4 weeks. Calcium carbonate added to a similar supplement caused ...
  • Friesen, K.G.; Boland, Michael A.; Schinckel, A.P.; Nelssen, Jim L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1994)
    Data from two experiments were used to determine the feed cost per I of lean gain for high-lean growth gilts fed various digestible lysine levels (.54 to 1.04%). The cost for producing 1 lb of lean increased as live weight ...
  • Bailey, E.A.; Preedy, G.W.; Pacheco, L.A.; Jaeger, John R.; Waggoner, Justin W.; Olson, K. C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2013)
    Ranch-of-origin preconditioning can improve the welfare and performance of beef calves by decreasing the stress associated with weaning, transport, diet change, and commingling with other calves. Preconditioning methods ...
  • Lamb, G.C.; Lynch, L.M.; Stevenson, Jeffrey S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1996)
    Four treatments were initiated approximately 15 days after calving: 1) calf was weaned permanently from its dam (CW; n=6); 2) calf was present continuously with its dam (CPO; n=5); 3) calf was weaned permanently from ...
  • Bulatewicz, Tom; Jin, W.; Staggenborg, Scott A.; Lauwo, S.; Miller, M.; Das, S.; Andresen, D.; Peterson, Jeffrey M.; Steward, David R.; Welch, S. M. (2009)
    Near-term consumption of groundwater for irrigated agriculture in the High Plains Aquifer supports a dynamic bio-socio-economic system, all parts of which will be impacted by a future transition to sustainable usage that ...
  • Viker, S.D.; Kiracofe, G.H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1990)
    It is generally accepted that the suckling stimulus and the interactions between lactation and level of nutrition regulate the interval from calving to cycling in beef cows. However, rnastectomized cows (udder removed) ...
  • Patterson, D.J.; Corah, L.R.; Brethour, J.R.; Negus, W.R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1987)
    The effect of heifer development on first calving and subsequent reproductive performance was evaluated in Angus x Hereford (AxH) and Brahman x Hereford (BxH) females. Heifers were fed to reach either 55% or 65% of ...
  • Carmack, C.F.; Hunt, Melvin C.; Kropf, Donald H.; Schwenke, J.R.; Kastner, Curtis L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1993)
    Natural flavorings were evaluated for use in low-fat ground beef, which frequently lacks flavor intensity. Three lean sources, A-maturity (young), E-maturity (mature cow), and imported (cow) beef round muscles, were used ...
  • Johnston, S.L.; Hines, Robert H.; Traylor, S.L.; Hancock, Joe D.; Behnke, Keith C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1995)
    Growing/finishing gilts were fed two-, three-, four-, or five-phase diet regimens from 77 to 276 lb. The diets were mixed in either a conventional, horizontal ribbon mixer or a 9 ft auger. No interactions occurred among ...
  • Pfost, H.B.; Smith, E.F.; Richardson, D.; Boren, Fred W. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1965)
    the only variable planned in the diet was type of molasses, which composed 16% of the self-fed roughage-concentrate mixture. Cane molasses was used in two lots; hemicelluloses extract in two lots. The self-fed roughage-concentrate ...
  • Smith, E.F.; Richardson, D.; Deyoe, C.W.; Curtis, R.G.; Boren, Fred W. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1964)
    Choice grade Hereford steer calves in this test came from near Alden, Kansas, and were assigned to treatments on a random-weight basis. All lots received the same experimental diet except 10 percent molasses was substituted ...
  • Aperce, C.; Heidenreich, J.; Drouillard, James S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010)
    Escherichia coli O157:H7 contamination of human food products is a major concern for the beef industry. The pathogens responsible for outbreaks often originate from cattle, and E. coli O157:H7 can thrive in healthy cattle. ...
  • Aperce, C.; Heidenreich, J.; Drouillard, James S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010)
    Escherichia coli O157:H7 contamination of human food products is a major concern for the beef industry. The pathogens responsible for outbreaks often originate from cattle, and E. coli O157:H7 can thrive in healthy cattle. ...
  • Aperce, Celine C.; Heidenreich, J. M.; Drouillard, James S. (2014)
    Colonization of the gastrointestinal tract of cattle by Shiga toxin-producing Escherichia coli increases the risk of contamination of food products at slaughter. Our study aimed to shed more light on the mechanisms used ...
