  • Koch, B.A.; Nam, T. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1963)
    Arsanilic acid is one of many feed additives approved by the Food and Drug Administration for use in swine rations. Results from an uncontrolled feeding demonstration suggested that arsanilic acid effectively increased ...
  • Good, D. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1963)
    America owes a great deal of the founders of the Hereford, Angus and Shorthorn breeds of beef cattle, the dominant U.S. beef breeds. Early Scotch and English breeders in developing the beef breeds aimed to breed cattle ...
  • Smith, E.F.; Richardson, D.; Westmeyer, H.W.; Boren, Fred W. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1963)
    This test compares steer weight gains on four bluestem pastures to determine whether differences among the pastures might influence steer performance. Other than being in different pastures, all steers were treated and fed ...
  • Koch, B.A. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1963)
    The practice of raising pigs on an elevated slotted floor is receiving wide publicity. Slotted floors have been used in various parts of the world for many years, but they have only recently been used extensively in this ...
  • Koch, B.A. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1963)
    This is continuation of feeding trials comparing the feeding value of corn and sorghum grain under Kansas conditions. Forty feeder pigs, 12 Poland Chinas and 28 Durocs averaging 55 pounds each, were randomly divided by ...
  • Smith, E.F.; Anderson, K.L.; Drake, C.L.; Boren, Fred W. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1963)
    This experiment was designed to determine the effect of different stocking rates, of deferred grazing, and of pasture burning on cattle performance, productivity of pastures, and range condition as determined by plant ...
  • Drake, C.L.; Smith, E.F.; Richardson, D.; Tsien, W.S. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1963)
    This experiment was designed to evaluate the desirability of supplementing bluestem pasture as indicated in the title. Forty Hereford steer calves were divided into four lots of 10 each and fed the following rations per ...
  • Smith, E.F.; Richardson, D.; Cox, R.F.; Boren, Fred W. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1963)
    Previous work (Bulletin 447) indicated that sorghum grain fattening rations supplemented with 0.5 pound per head per day of soybean oil meal produced gains minimal in efficiency and carcasses equal to those from heifers ...
  • Sukhonthasarnpa, S.; Parrish, D.B.; Koch, B.A. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1963)
    The presence of nitrates and nitrites in feed and drinking water of farm animals apparently has caused some serious nutritional problems. This study was to establish more clearly some ways the nitrites interfere with ...
  • Smith, E.F.; Richardson, D.; Fairbanks, G.E.; Boren, Fred W. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1963)
    This feeding trial was to determine the effects of various field-conditioned alfalfa hays on the winter performance of heifer calves. Second-cutting alfalfa was field-conditioned or processed as follows: 1. Control-mowed, ...
  • Smith, E.F.; Richardson, D.; Fairbanks, G.E.; Boren, Fred W. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1963)
    This is the third year of an experiment designed to investigate factors that affect the feeding value of sorghum silage. Data reported in Circular 383, 1960-61, indicated that almost without exception, average daily gain, ...
  • Menzies, C. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1963)
    Research has provided the basis for improving production of quantity and quality of lamb and wool. Knowledge obtained concerning improved breeding, feeding, management and disease control practices has been used to increase ...
  • Koch, B.A. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1963)
    Changes in methods of feeding, breeding, and managing swine have been almost revolutionary the past 50 years. Consumer preference disease control , new knowledge concerning nutrition, new and more adaptable equipment, new ...
  • Smith, W.H.; Wheat, J.D.; Spies, H.G. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1963)
    The purebred Shorthorn cattle breeding program was continued during 1962 without modification of breeding plans. Inbreeding was continued in the two lines. The Wernacre Premier line is in its firth generation and the Mercury ...
  • Menzies, C.S.; Hillman, M.; Banbury, Evans E. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1963)
    The Colby ewe flock consists of approximately 325 four-and five-year-old fine-wool ewes, that were purchase in southwest Texas as yearlings. Purebred Hampshire ewes are used. The first attempts to determine the effect that ...
  • Koch, B.A.; Moyer, W.A. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1963)
    The boar testing program was changed to a slaughter-pig testing program a year ago. The testing station committee of the Association made the change because of the difficulty in identifying carriers of infectious atrophic ...
  • Menzies, C.S.; Erhart, A.B. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1963)
    Six hundred and forty mixed wether and ewe fine-wool, feeder lambs were received at the Zuni Indian Reservation near Gallup, N.M., October 18, 1962. They averaged 61.9 pounds at the receiving point and 58.6 pounds off ...
  • Smith, W.H. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1963)
    The purebred livestock industry was well established in the United States 50 years ago. Breed registries were active in promoting breeds and maintaining pedigree records then. Livestock shows were well established in the ...
  • Richardson, D. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1963)
    Not one nutrient has been created, yet tremendous progress has been made in the relatively new field of animal nutrition, primarily by scientific investigations that have more clearly defined nutrient needs and interrelationships ...
  • Richardson, D.; Tsien, W.S. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1963)
    Crude protein, or protein as the term is commonly used, represents all nitrogen-containing compounds in the feed. True protein is that portion of the protein which has been formed by the combining of amino acids. The value ...
