  • Bolsen, K.; Ilg, H.; Hinds, M.; Hoover, J. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1982)
    Four alfalfa forages were evaluated: 1) hay; 2) low-dry matter (DM) silage; 3) medium-DM silage; and 4) high-DM silage. All forages were full-fed along with 2 lb of supplement or supplement plus 2 or 4 lb of cracked corn. ...
  • Hanson, K.L.; Schalles, R.S.; Harbers, L.H.; Thompson, Curtis R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1995)
    We compared upland and bottomland cereals seeded during 1991 at the KSU Agricultural Research Center - Hays. The five crops (three varieties of triticale, a winter wheat, and a winter rye) were harvested as whole ...
  • Coblentz, W.K.; Fritz, J.O.; Bolsen, K.K. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1993)
    A system for making laboratory-scale alfalfa hay bales was evaluated in two trials. In the first, conventional rectangular and laboratory-scale bales were made at each of seven different combinations of moisture ...
  • Baker, J.C.; Tonn, S.R.; Kehler, David E.; Blasi, Dale A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1998)
    Native grass hay meadows in three Kansas Flint Hills counties were sampled at 2-week intervals during the growing season to determine the effect of harvest date on forage quality. Each sample was analyzed for crude protein ...
  • Baker, J.C.; Tonn, S.R.; Paisley, S.I.; Kehler, David E.; Blasi, Dale A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1999)
    Native grass hay meadows in three Kansas Flint Hills counties were sampled at 2-week intervals during the 1997 and 1998 growing seasons to determine the effect of harvest date on forage quality and dry matter (DM) ...
  • Perry, R.C.; Corah, L.R.; Cochran, R.C.; Brethour, J.R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1988)
    The effect of hay quality on the onset of puberty and subsequent reproductive performance was evaluated in 51 3/4 Hereford x 1/4 Angus (HA) heifers and 47 3/4 Hereford x 1/4 Brahman (HB) heifers. Two qualities of alfalfa ...
  • Brandt, Robert T., Jr.; Pope, Ronald V. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1992)
    One hundred-eighty British crossbred steers (760 lb) were used in a 3x2 factorially arranged experiment to evaluate the main effects of alfalfa form (chopped hay, dehydrated pellets, or a 50:50 mixture of hay:dehy) ...
  • Healy, B.J.; Brandt, Robert T., Jr.; Gramlich, S.M. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1993)
    One hundred forty-four crossbred steers (850 lb) were used to evaluate the effects of physical form and level of average (15% CP) quality alfalfa on performance and carcass traits. Alfalfa hay had been harvested from ...
  • Bolsen, K.; Ilg, H.; Nuwanyakpa, M.; Posler, Gerry L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1982)
    Sorghum-Sudan hay and silage and sudangrass hay were compared with forage sorghum silage in an 80-day growing trial involving 60 calves. Calves fed forage sorghum gained 14% faster than those fed sudangrass hay ...
  • Coblentz, W.K.; Fritz, J.O.; Bolsen, K.K. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1993)
    A simple system is described that uses a hinged metal baling unit and a hydraulic press to make 4.0 × 4.3 × 5.3 inch wire-tied, laboratory- scale, hay bales. A comparison of densities of conventional, small, alfalfa ...
  • Coblentz, W.K.; Fritz, J.O.; Bolsen, K.K.; Cochran, R.C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1995)
    The relationships between storage time and several chemical indices for forage quality were established for alfalfa hay baled at two moisture levels (29.9 and 19.7%) in conventional and laboratory bale s made at 1.0, ...
  • Taylor, R.K.; Kueck, D.L.; Addison, C.E.; Blasi, Dale A.; Maxwell, Thomas M.; Shroyer, James P. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1993)
    Net- and twine-wrapped alfalfa hay bales were stored from July, 1990 to April, 1991 in three Kansas counties (Reno, Saline, and Stafford). Dry matter losses and changes in acid detergent fiber and acid detergent ...
  • Bolsen, K.; Ilg, H.; Axe, D.; Thompson, W. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1980)
    Sudangrass, pearl millet, sorghum-sudangrass, and forage sorghum silages and sorghum-sudan hay were full-fed to yearling steers in a 90-day trial. Forage sorghum was harvested in the dough stage; the other four forages, ...
  • Azimi, S.; Bolsen, K.; Laytimi, A.; Esmail, S.H.M.; Hoover, J.; Ye, Q.K. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1988)
    Three trials were conducted to compare silage and hay yields and feeding values of winter cereal foraged harvested in the boot and dough stages of maturity. Included were triticale; common rye; Kanby barley; and Centurk, ...
