  • Dikeman, Michael E.; Melton, C.C.; Tuma, H.J.; Beecher, G.R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1970)
    Because tenderness is considered the most desired eating characteristic in meat, more emphasis should be placed on this trait in evaluating beef quality in breeding and selection programs. Both tenderness and marbling ...
  • Thyfault, H.A.; Smith, E.F.; Harbers, L.H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1970)
    Biuret, a non protein nitrogen compound, has shown promise as a protein substitute for ruminants fed poor quality roughages. Urea, by comparison, cannot be sued without an adequate supply of energy in the form of either ...
  • Stiffler, D.; Kropf, Donald H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1970)
    Carcass data were obtained from 28 barrows from the Kansas Swine Testing Station and 31 from the Kansas State Barrow Contest in 1969. All were slaughtered and standard measurements taken. Each carcass was cut to wholesale ...
  • Koch, B.A.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1970)
    Pigs fed corn gained faster than those fed sorghum grain in one trial. The reverse was true in a second trial. Overall average daily gain figures were almost identical (1.67 lbs. per day for corn; 1.65 lbs. per day for ...
  • Schalles, R.R.; Kiracofe, G.; Drake, C.L.; Reves, C.N. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1970)
    Cow and calf performance under four winter-nutrition levels was compared using 34 cows the first year and 87 cows the second year. Cows were maintained on the same nutrition treatment both years with additional cows ...
  • Stuart, J.G.; Koch, B.A.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1970)
    Five starters were compared with a corn-soybean meal standard with 15% skim milk and 12% sugar. Rations containing dried skim milk or dried whey with 3 or 5% added edible fat also were compared. The rations were offered ...
  • Koch, B.A.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1970)
    Mixing litters after weaning did not significantly affect rate of gain or efficiency of growing pigs. Weight gains were similar (1.57 or 1.49) for mixed litters and intact litters during a 28-day post-weaning trial.
  • Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1970)
    Various types of mechanical units designed to replace lactating brood sows are available. The Mini-Mor Corporation, Omaha, Nebraska, lent Kansas State University a unit designed to raise 36 pigs in individual cages. We ...
  • Koch, B.A.; Stuart, J.G.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1970)
    Three trials were conducted involving 231 head of pigs to determine the efficiency of various methods of providing supplemental iron to baby pigs. All treatment groups were effective in maintaining normal hematocrit values ...
  • Clary, F.G.; Brent, B.E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1970)
    Earlier experiments have shown that cattle may perform differently at different Kansas locations. Feeds from four locations (Manhattan, Mound Valley, Colby, and Garden City) were analyzed for several minerals to see if ...
  • Clary, F.G.; Brent, B.E.; Richardson, D.; Erhart, A.B.; Banbury, Evans E.; Boren, Fred W. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1970)
    Effects of environment on the performance of beef steers in Kansas have been studied since 1962. The experiments, in three phases, have included seven feedlot trials and one digestion trial.
  • McCollough, R.L.; Drake, C.L.; Harrison, K.F. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1970)
    In 1969, Kansas harvested 182, 896, 00 bushels from 3,266,00 acres of grains sorghum for a 56-bushel-per-acre average. Much of it is fed to beef cattle; therefore, it would be an economic advantage for both grain producers ...
  • Greathouse, G.; Smith, E.F. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1970)
    Mortality in calves at weaning is one of the major problems in the beef industry. Some relief from this problem might be achieved if the calves could be changed from milk and grass to high energy ration with little lapse ...
  • Drake, C.L.; Good, D.L.; Schalles, R.R.; Hahn, P.A.; Myrick, O.D. Jr. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1970)
    The use of rumen microorganisms is not new but neither is it a common practice. We used a product developed by W.R. Grace and Company in an attempt to reduce the "adaptation period" of cattle placed on a finishing ration. ...
  • Koch, B.A.; Lafferty, D.T.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1970)
    This progress report covers only growth rate and feed efficiency of pigs the first 73 days of one feeding trial. Replacing soybean meal with either dry-roasted whole soybeans or pressure-extruded, whole soybeans did not ...
  • Roth, G.M.; Smith, E.F.; Schalles, R.R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1970)
    This test was designed to study the following aspects of all-concentrate rations: (1) salt, (2) supplemental protein (3) self-feeding a protein and premix combination (4) a pelleted premix compared to a mash form, and (5) ...
  • McKee, M.; Schalles, R.R.; Harris, M.; Zoellner, K.O.; Westmeyer, H.W. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1970)
    Carcass data were collected from 24 carcass shows held throughout the Midwest, including eight county shows in Kansas and one county show in Nebraska, seven years’ results from the Kansas National Junior Livestock Show in ...
  • Koch, B.A.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1970)
    Growing pigs fed ASP-250 from birth to market gained equally as well as those fed TNT. Feed conversion values were quite similar. Adding a fermentation product or vitamin E to rations did not produce consistently better ...
  • Swanson, R.W.; Smith, E.F. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1970)
    This test compared urea supplement (hand-fed), urea supplement (self-fed), and soybean meal (SBM) supplement (hand-fed) with cows on winter bluestem pasture. The supplements were formulated to supply the same amount of ...
  • Wheat, J.D.; Yu, T.; Schalles, R.R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1970)
    As early as 1926, Danish workers reported that cross-breeding gave larger litters at weaning that gained faster on less feed per pound of gain. Crossbreeding is now used extensively in market hog production. It uses heterosis ...
