  • Koch, B.A. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1964)
    Limiting daily feed intake during the last half of the growing-finishing period is a possible way to improve carcass characteristics of market pigs. A review of limited feeding trials conducted here and elsewhere leads to ...
  • Richardson, D.; Banbury, Evans E.; Erhart, A.B.; Williams, G.; Russ, Oliver G.; Harbers, L.H.; Loper, D.C.; Cox, R.F. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1964)
    This is a progress report on the second test to determine whether there is a differences in the performance of beef steers due to location, soil, climate, rainfall and/or feed produced in four area of Kansas: Colby, Garden ...
  • Richardson, D.; Banbury, Evans E.; Erhart, A.B.; Davidson, F.R.; Williams, G.; Smith, E.F.; Loper, D.C.; Harbers, L.H.; Cox, R.F. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1964)
    It is generally thought that performance of cattle may differ in various parts of the state due to location, soil, climate, rainfall and/or feed produced. This project is an attempt to determine whether such differences ...
  • Menzies, C.S.; Cox, R.F.; Deyoe, C.W.; Pfost, H.B. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1964)
    This test is a follow-up of the study reported on page 5 concerning the effects of form and heat treatment of rations on lamb feedlot performance.
  • Richardson, D.; Akram, M. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1964)
    Opinion differs on the value of single or mixed sources of added protein in beef rations. This experiment was to determine the percentage total nitrogen and protein nitrogen present in rumen ingesta of steers fed a single ...
  • Moe, D.R.; Kropf, Donald H.; Mackintosh, D.L.; Harrison, D.L.; Anderson, L. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1964)
    A group of 32 wholesale beef ribs, from cattle of known history, ranging in grade from high standard to high good, were used. A longissmus dorsi (rib eye muscle) sample was removed at the 12th rib and used to obtain color, ...
  • Koch, B.A. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1964)
    Slotted floors in all phases of swine production are being widely investigated. Confining pigs on a slotted floor is not a new idea. However, we need to know more about how best to use slotted floors.
  • Smith, E.F.; Richardson, D.; Curtis, R.G.; Dunn, L. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1964)
    The 60 good-to-choice grade Hereford calves used in this test came from near Fort Davis, Texas. They were assigned 10 to a lot on the basis of weight. All lots received all the prairie hay they would consume, about four ...
  • Smith, E.F.; Robertson, K.E.; Lipper, R.; Richardson, D.; Boren, Fred W. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1964)
    The favorable results of previous tests of the value of beef feedlot lighting justified further studies. Faster and more efficient gains were obtained under lighted conditions in two years of farm testing.
  • Gnadt, K.L.; Smith, E.F.; Richardson, D.; Kramer, J.E.; Dunn, L.; Boren, Fred W. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1964)
    Cobalt is one of the more recent minerals discovered to be essential to ruminants. It is necessary for the synthesis of Vitamin B 12 in the rumen. Copper is necessary for hemoglobin formation, along with iron. Corn is ...
  • Smith, E.F.; Richardson, D.; Kramer, J.F. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1964)
    Twenty-four yearling Hereford heifers with a USDA Feeder Grade of about High Good were divided on the basis of prior treatment and on a random-weight basis into four groups of six heifers each. The experimental diet is ...
  • Richardson, D.; Smith, E.F. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1964)
    This was the second test to compare dehydrated alfalfa as a source of Vitamin A with pre-formed Vitamin A, fed individually and in combination with and without Aureomycin. Two-year-old Hereford steers from two previous ...
