  • Smith, J.F.; Harner, Joseph P.; Brouk, Michael J. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2007)
    Recently, there has been interest in constructing mechanical ventilation with evaporative pads to improve the environmental conditions for cows during periods of heat stress. Low profile cross-ventilated freestalls with ...
  • Dodds, Walter K.; Veach, Allison M.; Ruffing, Claire M.; Larson, Danelle M.; Fischer, Jason L.; Costigan, Katie H. (2013)
    Whole-ecosystem metabolism is an important indicator of the role of organic matter, C cycling, and trophic structure in rivers. Ecosystem metabolism is well studied in small streams, but less is known about metabolism in ...
  • Keay, L.E.; Kiracofe, G.; Simon, M.; Riley, Jack G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1983)
    The effectiveness of alfaprostol in inducing abortion was tested in 93 pregnant heifers. Alfaprostol was injected intramuscularly, .7 mg per 100 pounds body weight. Twenty-four heifers were injected when they averaged 83 ...
  • Laudert, S.; Boyd, G.; Kuhl, G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1986)
    Alfavet® (alfaprostol), an experimental prostaglandin analog for inducing abortion in feedlot heifers, was evaluated for efficacy. Abortion was induced within 8 days following injection of 5 mg alfaprostol in 45 of 51 ...
  • Pahwa, Sakshi; Scoglio, Caterina M.; Scala, Antonio (2014)
    Electric power-systems are one of the most important critical infrastructures. In recent years, they have been exposed to extreme stress due to the increasing demand, the introduction of distributed renewable energy sources, ...
  • Dawson, Angus; Herington, Jonathan C. C. (2014)
    Academic freedom is an important good, but it comes with several responsibilities. In this commentary we seek to do two things. First, we argue against Francesca Minerva's view of academic freedom as presented in her article ...
  • Veloso, L.; Loe, E.; Unruh, John A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2006)
    Sixteen crossbred steers were used to compare performance and carcass characteristics of animals from accelerated and “natural” cattle production systems. Steers in the accelerated group (8 head) were implanted with Component ...
  • Brouk, Michael J. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2004)
    Accelerated-growth feeding programs are the newest buzz word in calf rearing. Accelerated programs require a milk replacer containing more crude protein and less fat content than traditional milk replacers. These ...
  • Miller, K.; Van Bibber, C.L.; Drouillard, James S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2012)
    Cattle entering feedlots typically are adapted to finishing diets over a period of 2 to 4 weeks by gradually replacing forages with concentrate feeds using a series of step-up diets. Without proper adaptation, naïve ...
  • Bulatewicz, Tom; Yang, X.; Peterson, Jeffrey M.; Staggenborg, Scott A.; Welch, S. M.; Steward, David R. (2010)
    Policy for water resources impacts not only hydrological processes, but the closely intertwined economic and social processes dependent on them. Understanding these process interactions across domains is an important step ...
  • Oakes, T. M.; Bellinger, Steven L.; Miller, W. H.; Myers, E. R.; Fronk, R. G.; Cooper, B. W.; Sobering, Tim; Scott, P. R.; Ugorowski, Phillip B.; McGregor, Douglas S.; Shultis, J. Kenneth; Caruso, A. N. (2013)
    Accurately resolving the ambient neutron dose equivalent spanning the thermal to 15 MeV energy range with a single configuration and lightweight instrument is desirable. This paper presents the design of a portable, high ...
  • Hotz, Robbie (Kansas State University. Dept. of History, 2012)
    When people think of Willam Tecumseh Sherman they often imagine the hard and tough general who burned Atlanta and devastated the Confederacy in his march to the sea. However, few are aware of his nervous breakdown early ...

    Superparamagnetic iron oxide nanoparticles were functionalized with a quasi-monolayer of 11-sulfoundecanoic acid and 10-phosphono-1-decanesulfonic acid ligands to create separable solid acid catalysts. The ligands are ...
  • Allee, G.L.; Nelson, R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1976)
    Three trials involving 166 growing pigs (initial weight 20.5 pounds) and 96 finishing pigs (initial weight 108.7 pounds) were conducted to investigate effects of feeding high-moisture, acid-treated sorghum to swine. Sorghum ...
  • Harmon, D.L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1985)
    The effects of adding decoquinate (Deccox®) to the diet at 0, 0.5, or 5 mg per kg body weight were evaluated with diets of 30 and 80% concentrate. Decoquinate did not influence rumen or plasma metabolites, diet digestibility, ...
