  • Schalles, R.R.; Drake, C.L.; Kiracofe, G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1971)
    Cow productivity on four supplemental winter feeding levels were compared over 2 years. Cattle were grazed on native bluestem year round. Cows calved between February 15 and May 5. Only records (104) of cows that raised ...
  • Harbers, L.H.; Warren, L.C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1971)
    Because it is a standard practice, adding salt to livestock rations has not received much attention in the past several years. Salt is universally added at 0.5% of the diet, but studies here in the early 50’s showed salt ...
  • Koch, B.A.; Allee, G.L.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1971)
    Three feeding trials were conducted to determine benefits of processing sorghum grain (milo) for finishing swine. Flaked, ground, and dry rolled milo rations resulted in similar pig weight gains. Generally, the feed:gain ...
  • Tuma, H.J.; Allen, Dell M.; Dikeman, Michael E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1971)
    Numerous instruments have been developed to objectively measure tenderness, an important eating characteristics of beef. The Kramer shear press and Warner-Bratzler shear show the best relationships to taste panel tenderness ...
  • Tucker, L.; Harbers, L.H.; Smith, E.F. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1971)
    More urea, a torn of nonprotein nitrogen, would be fed to ruminants except for inefficient conversion of urea-nitrogen to Microbial protein, toxicity, lack of palatability and urea segregating in mixed rations. As a ...
  • McKee, M.; Schalles, R.R.; Zoellner, K.O. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1971)
    Data on nine Simmental-Hereford cross calves (3 bulls and 6 females) from birth to 6 months of age was reported in Bulletin 536. The three bulls shared conditions with three Hereford, four Angus, and one Shorthorn bull. ...
  • Koch, B.A.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1971)
    Post-weaning comparisons were made using high and low protein rations with and without a fermentation product (lactobacillus acidophilus). Pigs receiving higher protein rations (18%) grew slightly faster than those receiving ...
  • Koch, B.A.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1971)
    During the breeding period, adding the fermentation product (lactobacillus acidophilus) to the ration fed to gilts and sows made no difference in conception percentages. Nonsignificant differences was observed between the ...
  • Allee, G.L.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1971)
    Gains of finishing pigs fed whole or rolled reconstituted sorghum grain (30% moisture) from 100 lbs. to an average of 210 lbs. were similar and similar to gains by pigs fed a ground sorghum grain ration. Compared on a 90% ...
  • Koch, B.A.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1971)
    The feed, required per pound of gain was similar for pigs fed corn, sorghum grain, corn-wheat, or sorghum grain-wheat diets. Pigs on the corn ration grew significantly (P<.05) faster. The sorghum grain, sorghum grain-wheat, ...
  • Schoneweis, D.A.; Bartel, R.K.; Stuart, J.G.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1971)
    Fourteen litters (120 pigs) were used to study effects of iron injections on day one or day four after birth. No differences were detected in weight gains, hematological values of hemoglobin, packed cell volume, or red ...
  • Smith, E.F.; Harbers, L.H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1971)
    Three different rations were compared for feeding calves immediately after weaning. Desired is a ration that will reduce weaning stress, produce economical gains, and be easy to feed. The rations are shown in Table 4. ...
  • Allee, G.L.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1971)
    One hundred twenty-eight pigs averaging 44 pounds were used to determine the influence of level of dietary fat and calorie:protein ratio on the performance of young pigs. Daily gains by pigs fed diets containing 0, 3, 6, ...
  • Lafferty, D.T.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1971)
    Pigs fed full-fat, processed soybeans (FFPS) in place of soybean meal (SBM, 44% CP) gained adequately and produced carcasses with lean measurements equal to those of pigs fed soybean meal. Backfat and belly fat were ...
  • Yauk, D.O.; Drake, C.L.; Schalles, R.R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1971)
    Because most finishing rations contain a high proportion of grain, better processing of sorghum grain to increase grain utilization should improve ration efficiency. Work in Texas, Oklahoma, Arizona, and Fort Hays has ...
  • McCollough, R.L.; Drake, C.L.; Schalles, R.R.; Roth, G.N.; Harrison, K.F. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1971)
    Hybrid sorghum grain is the major source of energy in livestock finishing rations in the Midwest. In 1969, 739 million bushels of sorghum grain were produced in the United States and 620 million bushels, or 84% were fed ...
  • Koch, B.A.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1971)
    A growing-finishing ration that substituted 25% L-lysine fortified bulgar millfeed for 20% of the sorghum grain and 5% of soybean meal' (44%) gave weight gains and feed:gain ratios for finishing swine similar to those with ...
  • Allee, G.L.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1971)
    Pigs medicated 5 weeks with TNA-290 and ASP-250 had statistically greater (P<.05) average daily gains and those medicated with ASP-250 had significantly (P<.05) lower feed conversion rations than non-medicated pigs. Feed ...
  • Allee, G.L.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1971)
    The influence of frequency of feeding on weight gain, feed efficiency, and carcass measurements was investigated, using 48 pigs averaging 40 pounds. Differences in daily gain among pigs fed ad libitum, twice a day or once ...
  • Arehart, L.A.; Banbury, Evans E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1971)
    Sugar beet by-products are available to cattle feeders in northwestern Kansas, but their value as livestock feed is not known. In 1967-68, steers fed liquid protein concentrate beet pulp pellets (LPC) in wintering rations ...
