  • Schalles, R.R.; Pitts, C.W. Jr.; McKee, M.; Evans, J. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1972)
    Cattlemen have traditionally used various methods to control horn flies and, more recently, face flies. Many methods used require various amounts of labor and handling of cattle. Most recent efforts have stressed minimum ...
  • Harbers, L.H.; Pitts, C.W.; Harrision, K.F.; Tucker, L.L.; Smith, E.F. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1972)
    A convenient method to control flies in cattle manure is adding an insecticide to the ration. The chemical passes through the digestive tract and effectively controls fly larvae in the manure. It may also influence animal ...
  • Rao, M.R.; Harbers, L.H.; Latschar, A.M.; Smith, E.F. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1972)
    The evaluation of pastures by esophageally fistulated steers requires artificial rumen techniques to determine digestibilities of grasses. To develop a regression curve between data obtained by an artificial rumen and those ...
  • Bolsen, K.K.; Cox, O.J.; Drake, C.L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1972)
    The use of high moisture grain in beef cattle rations has increased during the past several years. It has improved feed efficiency of high energy rations five to 20 percent in previous research. Non-nutritional advantages ...
  • Allee, G.L.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1972)
    The value of feeding flaked or roasted sorghum grain to finishing swine (95 to 210 lbs.) was investigated using 54 barrows and gilts. Rate and efficiency of gain for each treatment group were similar. Data from this station ...
  • Allee, G.L.; Deyoe, C.W.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1972)
    Two experiments involving 66 finishing pigs were conducted to determine the feeding value of a wheat protein concentrate. Pigs fed diets containing as much as 60% wheat protein concentrate consumed the same quantity of ...
  • Schalles, R.R.; Zoellner, K.O.; Meier, R.J. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1972)
    Crossbred cows are common but interested in using crossbred bulls is recent. Little information is available on use of crossbred bulls, so advice and recommendations have been based on genetic principles rather than research. ...
  • Allee, G.L.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1972)
    Suckling pigs (2 to 4 weeks old) offered a choice of diets containing either flavored or unflavored mono-sodium glutamate (F-MSG or MSG) consumed 3.5 times more of the flavored than of the unflavored diet. Likewise, litters ...
  • McCollough, R.L.; Drake, C.L.; Roth, G.M. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1972)
    A 126-day feedlot trial was used to determine feedlot performances and nutritional values of eight hybrid sorghum grains and three hybrid corns.
  • McCollough, R.L.; Riley, Jack G.; Drake, C.L.; Roth, G.M. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1972)
    Previous trials here indicated a possible difference in nutritional values of different hybrid sorghum grains with yellow endosperm hybrids being superior to white endosperm. We compared feedlot performance of yellow ...
  • Allee, G.L.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1972)
    One hundred fifty-three barrows and gilts were used to evaluate flaking of corn, wheat, and sorghum grain for weaned pigs. Flaking increased rate of gain and improved feed efficiency (9 to 10%). Pigs fed corn rations gained ...
  • Allee, G.L.; Koch, B.A.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1972)
    Forty sows (Yorkshire, Hampshire, and Duroc) were used to study effects of feeding a milo diet fortified with vitamins and minerals (FM) to bred sows from approximately 25 days after breeding to 10 days before farrowing. ...
  • Allee, G.L.; Deyoe, C.W.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1972)
    The feeding value of high-moisture milo treated with organic acids for finishing swine was studied in two trials involving 56 pigs. There were no significant differences in daily gain, feed intake, feed efficiency, or ...
  • Allee, G.L.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1972)
    One hundred forty pigs averaging 28 pounds were fed a corn-soybean meal diet to study the influence of fat level and calorie:protein (C:P) ratio on the performance and carcass composition. With a constant C:P ratio, fat ...
  • Jensen, F.E.; Erickson, D.B.; Trieb, S.E.; Tuma, H.J. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1972)
    The U.S. system of producing, marketing, and distributing farm products has been heralded as the world’s most efficient, with lower distribution costs than any other nation. Research continues to improve marketing through ...
  • Leising, J.; Tuma, H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1972)
    Meat shrinkage is a major problem for the beef industry. Shrinkage (loss in weight) results from many factors: improper chilling, low humidity, not packaging, poor sanitation, or excessive ageing time. Most beef is chilled ...
  • Wheat, J.D.; Kropf, Donald H.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1972)
    We are attempting to develop a well-muscled line of Durocs by selecting for minimum back fat and maximum loin eye area as estimated by the Anscan and to form a control line by randomly selecting from the same base population. ...
  • Brent, B.E.; Lusby, K.S.; Kobuszewski, J.A.; Parks, J.C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1972)
    Polioencephalomalacia (PEM) is a disorder of the ruminant central nervous system characterized by sudden onset and rapid death. At autopsy, the brain may be swollen and cerebral cortex degenerated. Early symptoms may include ...
  • Allee, G.L.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1972)
    An experiment involving 81 finishing pigs was conducted to determine the nutritional adequacy of triticale for finishing swine. Pigs fed triticale alone gained significantly (P<.05) slower than pigs fed any other diets. ...
