  • Laudert, S.B.; Kuhl, G.L.; Edwards, A.J. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1987)
    Two field trials were conducted to compare the pasture and finishing performance of heifers spayed by the Kimberling-Rupp(K-R) technique or by flank spaying plus autografting a piece of ovarian tissue into the rumen wall ...
  • Hayes, D.; Corah, L.; Bartley, E.E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1980)
    Data collected from six producers grazing 4050 head of cattle on 850 acres of irrigated alfalfa showed that under optimum conditions, Kansas producers can expect: stocking rate, 5 to 6 head/acre; average daily gain, 2 ...
  • Martin, Victor L.; Hale, R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2004)
    Rye, wheat, and triticale pasture were evaluated during the winters of 2000-01, 2001-02, and 2002-03 for their ability to increase cattle weight from late fall through mid-spring. Large-scale studies were conducted on two ...
  • Johnson, Sandra K.; Harmoney, Keith R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2011)
    Beef producers can lower feed costs by extending the grazing period and reducing the need for harvested forages. Complementary forage systems extend the native range grazing season; wheat pasture is common in the southern ...
  • Blake, Kevin S. (2004)
    The purpose of this article is to examine the portrayal of American Indians at the interpretive sites along the Lewis and Clark National Historic Trail (NHT) in the Great Plains to see to what extent multicultural awareness ...
  • Anterola, Jeremy; Becker, Andrew; Blackwell, Jessica; Bonser, Skyler; Capps, Scott; Curry, Collin; Henley, Jacob; Jacobson, Melody; Jaquez-Herrera, Clemente; Kroen, Kevin; LaMartina, Josh; Rader, Julianne; Renyer, Shandelle; Richardson, Lindsey; Rolfs, Brett; Scherling, Ian; Stolwyk, Adrienne; Van de Riet, Geoff; Vanderpool, Aaron; Wages, Erin; Watkins, Malcolm; Wilke, Laura; Williams, Jessica (Kansas State University, 2007)
    May 4, 2007, a tornado ripped across Kiowa County, Kansas, leveling ninety-five percent of the town of Greensburg and leaving the rest of the town severely damaged. Shortly after the tornado, a 12-week process of meetings ...
  • Maddock, Sally; Kern, Kelsey (Kansas State University, 2007)
  • Schroeder, Ted C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1998)
    Pricing fed cattle on a value-based quality and yield grade grid provides the best opportunity for cattle producers to receive premiums associated with high quality cattle. However, grid discounts for cattle not desired ...
  • Pei, Zhijian J.; Fisher, Graham R.; Liu, J. (2008)
    The majority of semiconductor devices are built on silicon wafers. Manufacturing of high quality silicon wafers involves several machining processes including grinding. This review paper discusses historical perspectives ...
  • Liu, J. H.; Pei, Zhijian J.; Fisher, Graham R. (2007)
    Grinding is an important process for manufacturing of silicon wafers. The demand for silicon wafers with better quality and lower price presents tremendous challenges for the grinding wheels used in the silicon wafer ...
  • Lu, W. K.; Pei, Zhijian J.; Fisher, Graham R. (2007)
    It is difficult for the lapping-based manufacturing method currently used to manufacture the majority of silicon wafers to meet the ever-increasing demand for flatter wafers at lower costs. A grinding-based manufacturing ...
  • Hunt, Melvin C.; Kendall, J.L.A.; Kropf, Donald H.; Dikeman, Michael E.; Kastner, Curtis L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1980)
    Ground beef from electrically stimulated and/or pre-rigor processed carcasses was equivalent to conventional ground beef in texture, palatability, and frozen storage stability, but lost more juice when vacuum-stored, had ...
  • Naab, J.B.; Seini, S.S.; Gyasi, K.O.; Mahama, G.Y.; Prasad, P. V. Vara; Boote, K.J.; Jones, J.W. (2009)
    Prior on-station research showed that sowing dates, sowing density and applications of fungicide and phosphorus (P) increased groundnut (Arachis hypogaea) pod yield by 60–80%. Farmer-managed trials were conducted in the ...
  • Kettle, Nathan; Harrington, Lisa M.B.; Harrington, John A., Jr. (2007)
    Though researchers have documented groundwater and land use changes in the High Plains, few studies have investigated their interactions. This paper examines the relationship between groundwater depletion and agricultural ...
  • Steward, David R.; Peterson, Jeffrey M.; Yang, Xiaoying; Bulatewicz, Tom; Herrera-Rodriguez, Mauricio; Mao, Dazhi; Hendricks, Nathan (2009)
    An integrated foundation is presented to study the impacts of external forcings on irrigated agricultural systems. Individually, models are presented that simulate groundwater hydrogeology and econometric farm level crop ...
  • Saak, Alexander E.; Peterson, Jeffrey M. (2012)
    Farm size is a significant determinant of both groundwater irrigated farm acreage and groundwater irrigation application rates per unit land area. This paper analyzes the patterns of groundwater exploitation when resource ...
  • Ahring, Trevor S.; Steward, David R. (2012)
    Groundwater and surface water interactions within riparian corridors impact the distribution of phreatophytes that tap into groundwater stores. The changes in canopy area of phreatophytes over time is related to changes ...
  • Saak, Alexander; Peterson, Jeffrey M. (2007)
    This paper introduces a game theoretic model of groundwater extraction in a two-cell aquifer under incomplete information. A novel assumption is that individual users have incomplete knowledge of the speed of lateral flows ...
  • Rosenkranz, Richard R.; Behrens, Timothy K.; Dzewaltowski, David A. (2010)
