  • Richardson, D.; Smith, E.F.; Brent, B.E. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1967)
    It is generally recognized that a readily available source of energy (preferable grain) must be in the ration of ruminants for efficient synthesis of protein from nonprotein nitrogen. Therefore, nonprotein nitrogen has ...
  • Wang, Qin; Yao, Weixin (2012)
    Minimum average variance estimation (MAVE, Xia et al: 2002) is an effective dimension reduction method. It requires no strong probabilistic assumptions on the predictors, and can consistently estimate the central mean ...
  • Drtiz, S.S.; Tokach, Michael D.; Goodband, Robert D.; Nelssen, Jim L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1998)
    A total of480 pigs was used in an experiment conducted in a commercial research facility to determine the influence of fat additions to the growing-finishing diet on pig performance and carcass composition. Adding fat ...
  • Baudon, E.C.; Llanes, N.; Hancock, Joe D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2003)
    A total of 416 pigs, with an average initial body weight of 127 lb, was used to determine the effect of adding fat in diets for early and late finishing on growth performance and carcass characteristics. Treatments were: ...
  • Koch, B.A.; Allee, G.L.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1976)
    Pyridoxine added to finishing rations at two levels did not improve pig performance. Performance of pigs receiving a 20% crude protein broiler ration equalled, but was not better than, that of pigs receiving a standard 16% ...
  • Hastad, C.W.; Nelssen, Jim L.; Goodband, Robert D.; Tokach, Michael D.; DeRouchey, Joel M.; Dritz, Steven S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2005)
    Three studies were conducted to evaluate the effects of dried distillers grains with solubles (DDGS) on feed intake in growing pigs. In all experiments, pigs were housed in 10.5 × 10.3 ft pens with four 1-hole feeders in ...
  • Brethour, J.R.; Lee, B.; Riley, Jack G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1986)
    Adding .6 pound fat or .22 pound sodium bicarbonate (soda) to finishing rations containing rolled wheat significantly improved performance and appeared to increase the substitution value of wheat. Both fat and soda increased ...
  • Keesecker, D.; Wolf, B.; Tokach, Michael D.; Nelssen, Jim L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1986)
    An on-farm experiment was conducted utilizing 189 sows to evaluate the effect of adding 396 soybean oil to the lactational diet on subsequent pig performance and sow weight loss. Feeding sows a diet containing 3% soybean ...
  • Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1981)
    One hundred fifty finishing pigs were studied to evaluate the effect of adding whey and/or fishmeal to a sorghum grain-soybean meal basal swine diet. No significant effects due to treatment were observed on rate of gain, ...
  • Johnson, Sandra K.; Harmoney, Keith R.; Stevenson, Jeffrey S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2004)
    A study was conducted in 735 suckled beef cows to determine if synchronization of ovulation could be improved with estradiol cypionate (ECP) and(or) 48-hour calf removal in a modified MGA + CO-Synch protocol. All cows ...
  • Montgomery, Sean P.; Sindt, J.J.; Farran, T.B.; Pike, N.J.; Coetzer, C.M.; LaBrune, H.J.; Trater, A.M.; Hunter, R.D.; Stock, R.A.; Drouillard, James S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2001)
    Three hundred thirty-nine crossbred beef heifers were used in a 74-day finishing study to evaluate effects of adding 0.5% urea to finishing diets containing steam-flaked corn and 34% (dry basis) Sweet Bran® wet ...
  • Musser, R.E.; Davis, Duane L.; Owen, K.Q.; Campbell, R.E.; Hanni, S.; Bauman, J.S.; Heintz, M.; Goodband, Robert D.; Tokach, Michael D.; Nelssen, Jim L.; Dritz, Steven S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1999)
    A total of 232 sows was used to determine the effects of an additional 50 ppm of L-carnitine in the gestation diet on sow and offspring performance. No differences were observed in either the immediate or subsequent ...
  • Bolsen, K.K.; Laytimi, A.; Hart, R.A.; Niroomand, F.; Hoover, J. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1989)
    Whole-plant corn silages were treated with Ecosyl® or Foraform® in one trial and Biomate® or Biomate + Cold-flo® in the second trial. In both trials, the silages were well preserved, but all were highly unstable in air ...
  • Bolsen, K.; Smith, R.; Ilg, H.; Axe, D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1986)
    The response of corn silage to the additive, Silo-Best Soluble®, was not consistent for the farm silo criteria measured. Ensiling temperatures and chemical compositions were similar for control and treated silages, except ...
  • Soderlund, S.; Bolsen, K.; Ilg, H.; Hoover, J. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1983)
    Steers fed Silo Guard II® treated corn silage gained 3.5% faster and were 8.3% more efficient than those fed the control silage. Cornlage (54% dry matter corn silage in an oxygen-limiting structure) produced numerically ...
  • Bolsen, K.; Ilg, H.; Kirch, B.; Laytimi, A.; Lomas, Lyle W. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1987)
    Whole-plant corn silages were treated with USO3M or Silo-Best Soluble® in one trial and with Garst M-74® in a second trial. In Trial 1 all three silages were well preserved and moderately stable in the air. USO3M silage ...
  • Koch, B.A.; Loeppke, D.W. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1964)
    Specific additives are successfully incorporated into swine rations. Each year new ones are approved and each year the efficacy of the older ones is questioned. Recent feeding trial comparisons at this station are summarized ...
  • Ames, D.R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1976)
    Two winter trials have indicated that protein can be removed from growing rations during cold weather without lowering average daily gain. Cattle consumed 0.29 and 0.33 lb/hd/da (0.11 and 0.15 kg/hd/da) less protein supplement ...
  • Vanmiddlesworth, J.; Schalles, R.R.; Milliken, George A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1975)
    We developed a procedure to compare yearling weight ratios of a calf crop when the calves have been on different management or feeding regimes This procedure will also produce more meaningful sire and dam summaries.
