    A total of 236 lagoon and 35 hoop barn manure samples were collected during 2000 from Kansas swine operations to determine the effects of production phase and season of the year on their nutrient concentration. Lagoon ...
  • Dunham, James R. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2012-09-20)
    The 1988 National Research Council's (NRC) Nutrient Requirements of Dairy Cattle have been revised. Adjustments have been made in the recommended requirements for net energy for lactation (NEL); crude protein (CP); calcium ...
  • Lee, T.; Mamedova, Laman K.; Wileman, Benjamin W.; Thomson, Daniel U.; Bradford, Barry J.; Reinhardt, Christopher D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2011-03-30)
    Anabolic implants in finishing beef cattle offer significant return on investment. Anabolic implants improve average daily gain feed efficiency in pasture and feedlot cattle. One way growth-promoting implants stimulate ...
  • Marston, T.T.; Davis, Duane L.; Wood, Billy D.; Schaub, Rod (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-08-02)
    Forage testing is an important management tool available to cattle producers. Hay samples (n=42) from Shawnee, Douglas, and Osage counties of various forages (mostly alfalfa, brome hay, and prairie hay) recently were ...
  • Getz, Jean; Adhikari, Koushik; Medeiros, Denis M. (2010-01-21)
    Nutrigenomic research may uncover the keys to utilizing genetic information to create food products that improve public health through mitigation of chronic diseases.
  • Taylor, Melissa N. (2012-06-04)
    The overall focus of this experience was to provide efficient nutrition education and health promotion with both rural and urban areas of Kansas. To begin the experience, the student concentrated on health promotion and ...
  • Higgins, Mary Meck; Murray, Bethany J. (2011-01-19)
    Despite growing numbers, the nutrition practices and attitudes of skipped generation(s) kinship caregivers regarding feeding the dependent children in their care have not been examined. In this qualitative study, transcriptions ...
  • Allee, G.L.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-05-07)
    An experiment involving 81 finishing pigs was conducted to determine the nutritional adequacy of triticale for finishing swine. Pigs fed triticale alone gained significantly (P<.05) slower than pigs fed any other diets. ...
  • Nelssen, Jim L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-04-15)
    The swine industry is in a transitional period as it gears up to produce the lean meat required by the consumer. In fact, pork processors arc increasing the production of lean products (boneless loins, 95% fat-free hams) ...
  • Wu, J.J.; Hunt, Melvin C.; Kropf, Donald H.; Allen, Dell M.; Kastner, Curtis L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-02-08)
    We compared taste panel and connective tissue characteristics of beef fed a high energy diet with beef fed grass. The high energy diet produced higher USDA quality and yield grades, more rapid weight gain, and increased ...
  • Burson, D.E.; Hunt, Melvin C.; Hayward, L.H.; Kastner, Curtis L.; Kropf, Donald H.; Allen, Dell M. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-02-18)
    We assigned 112 Angus yearling steers to 14 nutritional treatments including control. Submaintenance, and 12 different combinations of ration energy (low, medium or high) and feeding period (56,91, 119, 147, or 175 days). ...
  • Taylor, R.K.; Kilgore, Gary L.; Higgins, James J.; Blasi, Dale A.; Duncan, Stewart R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-08-24)
    Crop residue samples from 22 grazed and nongrazed corn and sorghum residue fields across Kansas were collected every 2 weeks during the 1997/98 winter feeding season to evaluate quality and yield. Corn residue ...
  • Bradford, Barry J. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-11-29)
    Reducing cull rates and improving fertility in early lactation has a dramatic effect on the profitability of many dairies. Continuing research on transition cow nutrition has led to the development of an array of nutritional ...
  • O'Quinn, P.R.; Knabe, D.A.; Woodworth, J.C.; Lohrmann, T.T.; Nelssen, Jim L.; Goodband, Robert D.; Tokach, Michael D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-02-19)
    Two trials were conducted to compare the nutritional adequacy ofhigh-lysine, high-oil corn (.408% lysine, 6.21% fat) and highoil corn (.289% lysine, 5.97% fat) for young growing pigs. Experiment 1 used four barrows fitted ...
  • Allee, G.L.; Paulsen, Gary M. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-05-07)
    A growth trial and a digestion trial were conducted using 44 crossbred pigs (initial average weight 40 pounds) to determine the nutritional value of pearl millet as a feedstuff for swine. The millet used contained 11.98% ...
  • Allee, G.L.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-05-07)

  • McCollough, R.L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-03-11)
    In 1971, Kansas produced 234 million bushels of sorghum grain worth $217,000,000, second only to Texas. Most of it is used as an energy source in livestock rations. Since the introduction of hybrid sorghum grain in 1956, ...
