  • Smart, L.I.; Drake, C.L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1969)
    Research done here in 1967 and 1968 indicated that adding a complete supplement to forage as it was ensiled gave results equal to using soybean meal at the time of feeding. The research continued to improve the complete ...
  • Kropf, Donald H.; Bergkamp, J.L.; Berroth, J.N. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1969)
    This study compared various methods of evaluating carcasses. Data from 57 barrows on feeding trials for a barrow contest at the 1968 Kansas State Fair in Hutchinson were used.The barrows went on test weighing approximately ...
  • Singh, A.R.; Schalles, R.R.; Smith, W.H.; Kessler, F.B. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1969)
    The influence of cow weight at parturition and during the lactation on preweaning performance of calves was evaluated. Hereford cattle at the Fort Hays Branch Experiment Station were used. Purebred sires had been used ...
  • Koch, B.A.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1969)
    Most recent laboratory and research station reports have indicated that 2,2 - dichlorovinyl dimethyl phosphate (DDVP) (Shell Dichlorvos) fed at low levels to pregnant sows in late gestation favorably affects newborn pigs. ...
  • Koch, B.A.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1969)
    Recent reports indicate that a low level (25 parts per million of active ingredient) of 2,2 dichlorovinyl dimethyl phosphate (DDVP) increases growth of weanling pigs. The trial reported here was designed to measure such ...
  • Smith, E.F.; Owensby, Clenton E.; Swanson, B.W.; McKendrick, J.D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1969)
    This experiment was to determine the effect of increased early summer stocking and burning on cattle performance, productivity of pastures and range condition as determined by plant population changes. Early stocking ...
  • Kiracofe, G.H.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1969)
    The hormone oxytocin (a hypothalamic neurosecretion that is stored in the posterior pituitary gland) stimulates' uterine contractions during natural parturition. Commerical oxytocin has been used to induce labor or to ...
  • Carr, T.; Allen, Dell M.; Phar, P.; Cox, R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1969)
    Feedstuffs pass through cattle in approximately four days; however, steam-flaked rations may have a faster rate of passage. How much value do cattle derive from feed fed the last few days prior to slaughter, particularly ...
  • Kiracofe, G.H.; Schalles, R.R.; Marion, G.B. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1969)
    Data are available to indicate proper wintering rations for beef cows under dry lot conditions, but few are available under range management for Kansas. This is our first attempt to determine adequate winter rations for ...
  • Schalles, R.R.; Drake, C.L.; Kiracofe, G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1969)
    Cow and calf performance under four winter nutritional levels was evaluated, using 61 purebred Polled and high grade Hereford cows randomly allotted to obtain approximately equal pregnant and open cows in each group. ...
  • Singh, A.R.; Kiracofe, G.H.; Schalles, R.R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1969)
    Kamar heatmount detectors were used last spring on 45 Polled Hereford cows 3 to 12 years old. Bulls ran with the cows. Most cows became pregnant, which lessened observations as the breeding season progressed. Detectors ...
  • Greathouse, G.A.; Swanson, R.W.; Smith, E.F. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1969)
    Two pairs of identical twin heifer calves were grazed together on bluestem pasture from 1961 until 1968. During the two winters, 1961-63 each ones daily supplement was 1 pound of ground sorghum grain, 1 pound of soybean ...
  • Singh, A.R.; Schalles, R.R.; Smith, W.H.; Kessler, F.B. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1969)
    The ability of beef cows to produce heavy, vigorous and good quality calves every year is one of their most important economic traits. Feeding practices have been reported to influence average daily gain (ADG) and ...
  • Koch, B.A.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1969)
    The new K-State facilities for growing-finishing swine seemed ideal to re-evaluate various antibiotics as low-level feed additives. The first trial reported here was with the first pigs fed in the new barn. They also were ...
  • Koch, B.A.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1969)
    The protein level and protein quality of swine rations consisting primarily of grain can be changed by adding either protein like soybean meal or individual amino acids like lysine. Protein requirements are based on ...
  • Koch, B.A.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1969)
    Anemia as it most frequently occurs in baby pigs usually is caused by an iron deficiency. Iron stored in a baby pig is extremely limited and is quickly used to produce hemoglobin to maintain oxygen-carrying capacity in the ...
  • Clary, F.G.; Brent, B.E.; Richardson, D.; Banbury, Evans E; Spaeth, C.W.; Erhart, A.B.; Arnett, D.W.; Boren, Fred W.; Perry, H.B. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1969)
    Wintering and finishing performances of beef steers have been compared at Colby, Garden City, Manhattan and Mound Valley. When feeds were grown locally, cattle at Garden City and Colby outperformed those at Manhattan ...
  • Adepoju, A.; Portela, F.; Brent, B.E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1969)
    When urea is fed to ruminants, it is immediately converted to ammonia by an enzyme, urease. The ammonia usually becomes available faster than rumen bacteria can convert it to protein. Studies were reported last year ...
  • Koch, B.A.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1969)
    Baby pigs have the ability to grow rapidly and efficiently. Creep rations at an early age enhance their potential. Most commercial creep rations contain feedstuffs to increase palatability and acceptability. Are these ...
  • Greathouse, G.A.; Swanson, R.W.; Smith, E.F.; Smart, L.I.; Brent, B.E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1969)
    Results of previous similar research have been reported in Kansas Agicu1tural Experiment Station Bulletins 483, 493, 507, and 518. Trials at several research centers and here have shown that roughage may be satisfactorily ...
