  • Campbell, C.G.; St. Jean, G.; Titgemeyer, Evan C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1994)
    Increasing the amino acid supply to the small intestine of growing cattle can increase performance, if specific amino acids are limiting. Although this can be accomplished by feeding rumen undegradable protein, a more ...
  • Zhang, Yixing; Vadlani, Praveen V. (2013)
    Poly-lactic acid (PLA) derived from renewable resources is considered to be a good substitute for petroleum-based plastics. The number of poly L-lactic acid applications is increased by the introduction of a stereocomplex ...
  • Brandt, Robert T., Jr. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1988)
    One hundred sixty-five crossbred steers averaging 823 lb were utilized to evaluate the daily or weekly rotational feeding of ionophores. Treatments were (g/ton of feed, 90% dry basis): 1) Bovatec (B; 30), 2) Rumensin ...
  • Morrill, J.L. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1990)
    At Kansas State University, we are conducting research concerning nutrition and feeding management of calves, heifers, and dairy steers with emphasis in the following areas: 1) development of feeds and management practices ...
  • Muprhy, J.P. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1989)
    When planning new construction or major modification of a dairy system, consider: • calf, heifer, dry cow, and milking cow housing; • feed types, handling equipment, and storage; • manure handling method; • milking ...
  • Wolf, Christopher A.; Tonsor, Glynn T. (2013)
    Dairy policy often becomes a contentious topic during U.S. farm bill negotiations. The dairy subtitle of the 2012 farm bill has been debated and discussed since 2009. This research uses best-worst scenario methods to analyze ...
  • Delano, F.D.; Langemeier, Michael R. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1995)
    Dairy cow herd enterprise records from Kansas Farm Management Association farms over the past 4 years have shown an increase in returns to labor and management from $252 to $355 per cow. Returns for higher milkproducing cows ...
  • Morrill, J.L. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1986)
    Proper nutrition and management are necessary to provide adequate numbers of healthy herd replacements. Satisfactory heifer programs must take into consideration care of the dam and characteristics of the newborn calf, ...
  • Gordon, C.M.; Gosch, J.; Sindt, J.J.; Montgomery, Sean P.; Pike, J.N.; Kessen, T.J.; Sulpizio, M.J.; Spire, M.F.; Higgins, James J.; Drouillard, James S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2002)
    A 153-day trial was conducted using 345 heifers to determine optimal level of Dakota Gold dried distiller’s grains with solubles (DDGS) in finishing diets based on steam-flaked corn. Diets contained six levels of ...
  • Gordon, C.M.; Thipppareddi, H.; Lambert, D.L.; Kerr, K.; Pike, N.; Sindt, J.J.; Higgins, James J.; Phebus, Randall K.; Drouillard, James S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2002)
    Trial 1. Finishing beef heifers (345 head) were used in a 153-day finishing trial to evaluate the effects of feeding six levels of Dakota Gold®-brand dried distiller’s grains with solubles (DDGS): 0%, 15%, 30%, 45%, ...
  • Koch, B.A.; Cowman, G.L.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1968)
    Recent laboratory and research station reports have indicated that 2,2-dichlorovinyl dimethyl phosphate (DDVP) (Shell Dichlorvos) fed to pregnant sows late in gestation may have a favorable effect on the newborn pigs. This ...
  • Koch, B.A.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1969)
    Most recent laboratory and research station reports have indicated that 2,2 - dichlorovinyl dimethyl phosphate (DDVP) (Shell Dichlorvos) fed at low levels to pregnant sows in late gestation favorably affects newborn pigs. ...
  • Koch, B.A.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1969)
    Recent reports indicate that a low level (25 parts per million of active ingredient) of 2,2 dichlorovinyl dimethyl phosphate (DDVP) increases growth of weanling pigs. The trial reported here was designed to measure such ...
  • Kastner, Curtis L.; Kenney, P.B.; Campbell, R.E.; Prasai, R.K.; Mease, L.E.; Vogt, L.R.; Kropf, Donald H.; Fung, Daniel Y. C.; Garcia Zepeda, C.M. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1994)
    Lactic acid sprays effectively reduce the microbial load on both carcasses and subprimal cuts. Lactic acid decontamination of subprimals appears to carry through to retail cuts during display. Because of recontamination ...
