  • Busby, W.D.; McKee, M.; Corah, L.R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-02-09)
    Analysis of breeding records for 128 percentage Simmental females either weaned early (average age 63 days) or conventionally (average age 194 days) showed no statistically significant difference between early-weaned and ...
  • Stoner, G.R.; Nelssen, Jim L.; Goodband, Robert D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-04-09)
    The objective of this experiment was to evaluate three fish meal sources added to diets for the early-weaned pig. Fish meal sources were analyzed for total volatile nitrogen (TVN), which is an indicator of protein degradation ...
  • Schlickau, E.K.; Dikeman, Michael E.; Marston, T.T.; Brethour, J.; Unruh, John A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-08-02)
    Crossbred Hereford × Angus calves (n = 103) were used to determine the effect of early weaning on carcass and ribeye (longissimus muscle) characteristics of bulls and steers. Treatments were: 1) early-weaned (117 days of ...
  • Schlickau, E.K.; Marston, T.T.; Brethour, J.; Dikeman, Michael E.; Unruh, John A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-08-02)
    Crossbred Hereford × Angus calves (n = 103) were used to determine the effects of early weaning on feedlot performance of bulls and steers. Treatments were: 1) early-weaned (117 days of age) bulls, 2) early-weaned steers, ...
  • Koch, E.A.; Christopher, J.A.; Marston, T.T.; Breiner, Ryan M.; Unruh, John A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-08-03)
    Commercial cow/calf pairs (Angus based, n=103) were used to determine the effect of calf weaning age on cow body weight and body condition score (scale=1 to 9) and calf performance in terms of subcutaneous fat and marbling ...
  • Stoner, G.R.; Johnston, M.E.; Nelssen, Jim L.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-04-15)
    A growth study and a preference study were conducted to evaluate the effect of a commercially available flavoring agent on starter pig performance. A total of 192, 3-wk old, weaned pigs were utilized. A 2-phase starter ...
  • Harborth, K.W.; Llewellyn, Donald A.; Marston, T.T. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-08-02)
    Ninety-two pregnant, mature, spring-calving cows grazing low-quality tallgrass-prairie were used to determine if early weaning of calves reduces the supplementation cost during the subsequent winter. Calves were weaned ...
  • Shi, Jishu N.; Chengappa, M. M.; McVey, D.S.; Blecha, Frank; Goodband, Robert D.; Nelssen, Jim L.; Tokach, Michael D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-03-26)
    Nonspecific immunity is usually lower in young pigs than adults. Consequently, enhancing the young pig's nonspecific immune capability may be beneficial for the health and performance of early-weaned pigs. Twenty, 9-d-old, ...
  • Stoner, G.R.; Nelssen, Jim L.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-04-15)
    A growth study was conducted to evaluate the possibility of replacing dried skim milk (DSM) with select menhaden fish (SMFM) in a high nutrient density diet. A total of 210, 3wk- old weaned pigs was utilized. Diets were ...
