  • Dikeman, Michael E.; Pollak, E.J.; Taylor, J.; Davis, S.; Holm, T.; Koontz, S.; Gill, C.; Moser, Daniel W.; Dressler, E.A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2003)
    Carcass data and Warner-Bratzler shear force (WBSF) data on strip loin steaks were collected from nearly 8,500 cattle in contemporary groups of progeny from the more popular sires in 14 different beef cattle breeds in ...
  • Koch, B.A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1970)
    Waste disposal and odor control are two important problems in pork production. The odor formerly was called the "money smell" has suddenly become "Environmental Pollution." Concentrating many animals in small areas compounds ...
  • Fulhage, C. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1992)
    The impact of environmental regulation on livestock production enterprises is, inevitably, an increase in production costs. Producers should recognize that these are the costs of doing business and will probably have ...
  • Harner, Joseph P.; Murphy, James P. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1992)
    The dairy industry is receiving greater pressure to reduce its potential pollution to the environment. As the demand grows for cleaner streams, dairy operations will need to reduce and control the nutrient and sediment ...
  • Harner, Joseph P.; John, Smith (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2009)
    Water meters were installed on the evaporative cooling system of a long, low-profile, cross-ventilated dairy in the upper Midwest. The evaporative pad along the west side measured 10 by 350 ft. The water usage per unit ...
  • Cox, I.; Dingeldein, H.; Schmidt, Karen A. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1999)
    Milk processing plants are becoming fewer in number and larger in size. As a result, the distance the raw milk is transported from the point of production to the processing site increases. Because the major component ...
  • Newcomb, M.D.; Allee, G.L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1985)
    Two trials, using 360 pigs weaned at 17-27 days, were conducted to evaluate pig performance as affected by the addition of folic acid, thiamin, biotin, pyridoxine, or ascorbic acid to the diet. Combined data from Trial I ...
  • Koch, B.A.; Allee, G.L.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1974)
    Pigs fed rations containing waxy endosperm corn and those fed normal corn responded similarly in digestion and growing trials. Likewise, finishing pigs responded similarly when fed the two corns in digestion and growing trials.
  • McKee, M.; Bolsen, K.K.; Schalles, R.R.; Conway, K.L.; Fink, G.; Riley, Jack G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1975)
    Growth rate of 38 calves after being weaned at an average of 91.6 days was compared with growing rate of 37 calves averaging 91.2 days of age and continuing to nurse their mothers the same period. Average daily gains ...
  • McKee, M.; Bolsen, K.K.; Conway, K.L.; Fink, G.; Riley, Jack G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1974)
    An 85-day, post weaning growth rate for 30 calves weaned at an average age of 110.5 days was compared with the growth rate of 30 calves nursing their mothers the same period. Average age of the nursing calves at the start ...
  • McKee, M.; Fink, G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1978)
    Percentage Simmental and Hereford calves gained slightly more (13 lbs./hd) while nursing their mothers than 83 herd mates that were weaned early at 49 (+27) days of age. Percentage Simmental cows whose calves were weaned ...
  • Fleck, A.A.; Schalles, R.R.; Riley, Jack G.; Fink, G.; O' Banion, D.S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1977)
    Adding a medicated top dressing to a weaning calf ration did not reduce calf sickness, but increased weight gains the second and third weeks of a three-week weaning trial.
  • Dean Bark, L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1984)
    The 1983 weather in Kansas upset carefully laid plans and confounded the best management techniques. Yet the averages for 1982 and 1983 appear very similar. In Manhattan, the average temperatures were 54.04 F for 1982 and ...
  • Wright, J.M.; Kiracofe, G.H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1986)
    Ninety-one pregnant, crossbred Angus heifers aborted after receiving an injection of a prostaglandin analog at an average of 50, 75, 100, or 122 days of gestation. Weight change in the first 3 weeks after abortion and ...
  • Schlegel, E.R.; Oleen, Brandon E.; Hollenbeck, W.R.; Montgomery, Sean P.; Vahl, Christopher I.; Blasi, Dale A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2013)
    In many instances, due in part to price per unit of energy and proximity to production, Kansas beef producers have the opportunity to incorporate grain-processing byproducts such as wet distillers grains with solubles ...
  • May, M.L.; Quinn, M.J.; Drouillard, James S.; Walker, Charles E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2007)
    The purpose of this experiment was to determine optimal levels of distiller’s grains in finished diets with steam-flaked corn or dry rolled corn. Distiller’s grains have been used extensively in regions of the country in ...
  • Nichols, David A.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1988)
    Two hundred and twenty-four growing-finishing pigs were used to evaluate wet vs. dry ad libitum feeding utilizing the Pride of the Farm Maxima®feeder. Growth rate, average daily feed intake, and feed/gain were the same for ...
  • Farmer, C.G.; Cochran, R.C.; Simms, D.D.; Heldt, J.S.; Mathis, C.P. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1999)
