  • Smith, E.F.; Richardson, D.; Perry, H.B. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1966)
    This test was to determine if sorghum grain could completely replace prairie hay in a ration for calves being fed for limited growth. Intake of grain was restricted to supply approximately the same amount of energy consumed ...
  • Kropf, Donald H.; Mackintosh, D.L.; Hinnergardt, L.C.; Menzies, C.S.; Harrison, D.L.; Anderson, L. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1966)
    Lambs sired by Hampshire rams and from western ewes were individually slaughtered as they reached 96 lbs. live weight. Quality and quantity factors were evaluated after carcasses were chilled 48 hours. Carcasses were ...
  • Smith, E.F.; Anderson, K.L.; DeGeer, C.V. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1966)
    This experiment was to determine the effect of different stocking rates, of deferred grazing, and of pasture burning on cattle performance, productivity of pastures, and range condition as determined by plant population ...
  • Tribble, L.F. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1966)
    A group of 16 sows was divided after all sows were bred. One group was fed 4 pounds per head per day; the other, 4 pounds per head every other day for 60 days, then 4 pounds per head per day until taken to the farrowing ...
  • Menzies, C.S.; Richardson, D.; Deyoe, C.W.; Pfost, H.B. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1966)
    Research indicates that treating grains with heat may improve feedlot performance of ruminant animals. Previous work here indicated that treating all grain or roughage with heat resulted in reduced palatability. This test ...
  • Ly, C-C; Miller, L.; Deyoe, C.W.; Phost, H.B.; Tribble, L.F. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1966)
    Sorghum grain was prepared in a hammermill with a 1/8-inch screen and by steam rolling through a fine corrugated roller mill. Each preparation was fed in meal, pellet or crumble form. The rations also contained soybean oil ...
  • Jensen, A.H.; Tribble, L.F.; Miller, L. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1966)
    Wheat and corn-rolled oats in various physical forms compared with pigs weaned at 3 weeks of age. Rations of corn and rolled oats were compared with rations containing wheat. All rations were supplemented with protein, ...
  • Perry, H.B.; Boren, D.W. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1966)
    The 30 steers used were good to choice Herefords purchased as claves near Sterling, Kansas, and allotted to 3 lots of 10 steers each. Unlimited roughage was fed where grain was restricted. A ratio of 1 part roughage to 3 ...
  • Tribble, L.F.; Jensen, A.H.; Deyoe, C.W.; Pfost, H.B. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1966)
    A series of experiments has further evaluated wheat as swine feed. The experiments were conducted in confinement on concrete floored pens. Purebred Duroc, Poland and D x P crossbred pigs were used in all trials. All rations ...
  • Perry, H.B.; Larson, G.H.; Lipper, R.I.; Smith, E.F.; Boren, Fred W. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1966)
    Each of two lots was 24’ x 92’, one completely surfaced with concrete; the other, soil except for a 24’ x 16’ concrete feeding floor where the cattle stood to eat from a fence line feeder.
  • Smith, E.F.; Richardson, D.; Deyoe, C.W. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1966)
    The finishing ration for yearling steers should contain a minimum of about 10% protein. Sorghum grain frequently contains 10% protein; this test was to determine if such sorghum grain meets protein requirements. The ...
  • Smith, W.H.; Wheat, J.D.; Spies, H.G. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1966)
    The purebred Shorthorn beef cattle breeding experiment was initiated to study inheritance of production traits, to evaluate effects of inbreeding, and to explore the feasibility of using inbred lines for breeding improvement ...
  • Tuma, H.J.; Kropf, Donald H.; Mackintosh, D.L.; Alschwede, G.A. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1966)
    Carcass measurement, muscle quality, and palatability data have been collected on 88 paternal half-sib Angus steers. At weaning they were subdivided into one of the 11 nutritional and management regimes shown in Table ...
  • Loper, D.C.; Richardson, D.; Harbers, L.H. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1966)
    The data from the 1965 Livestock Feeders’ Day Bulletin indicate that ammonia production from animals fed urea rations was higher than that from nonurea rations. For the bacteria to “capture” more ammonia from urea rations ...
  • Menzies, C.M.; Banbury, Evans E.; Elliot, H. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1966)
    The ewe flock is handled in an early lambing program with the breeding season beginning around June 1 and ending September 1. All lambs are sold as milkfat lams during the spring and early summer. Two separate tests were ...
  • Menzies, C.S.; Erhart, A.B. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1966)
    Lambs used were finewool wethers purchased from the Zuni Indian Reservation near Gallup, New Mexico. Average purchase weight of 699 head was 63.8 lbs.; cost was $23.50 per cwt. plus 15 cents per head commission. Lambs were ...
  • DeGeer, C.V.; Hall, M.C.; Smith, E.F. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1966)
    The 66 heifers used were good to choice grade Herefords purchased near Fort Davis, Texas, and assigned to treatments on a random weight basis. They were rotated among pastures to minimize pasture differences during the ...
  • Richardson, D.; Smith, E.F.; Harbers, L.H.; Lebdosoekojo, R.S. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1966)
    Sixty Hereford steer calves averaging 440 pounds each from Warner’s Ranch in Rice County were wintered on sorghum silage, 1pound soybean oil meal and sorghum grain. Thirty received 4 pounds grain per head daily and 30 ...
  • Richardson, D.; Banbury, Evans E.; Erhart, A.B.; Williams, G.; Smith, E.F.; Loper, D.C.; Adepoju, A.; Harbers, L.H.; Cox, R.F.; Boren, Fred W. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1966)
    This is the third test to measure differences, if any, in performance of cattle in various parts of Kansas due to location, soil, climate, rainfall and/or local feed. Forty-eight Hereford steer calves from the same herd ...
  • Richardson, D.; Banbury, Evans E.; Erhart, A.B. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1966)
    This is a progress report on the fourth test to measure differences in the performance of beef steers in various parts of Kansas due to location, soil climate, rainfall and/or local food. Forty-either Hereford steers calves ...
