  • Smith, E.F.; Woolfolk, J.S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1973)
    One hundred and sixty- three black steers averaging 402 pounds were grazed from May 2 to October 3, 1972, on native bluestem pasture. They were assembled by a buying firm in Memphis, Tenn., and delivered March, 1972, ...
  • Spillman, C.K. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1973)
    Interest in environmentally-controlled facilities for swine has been increasing recently. Farrowing in such a facility can be justified for producers who plan to be producing pork for some time. However, many producers, ...
  • Davis, Duane L.; Schalles, R.R.; Drake, C.L.; Kiracofe, G.; Brent, B.E.; McKee, M.; Evans, J. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1973)
    Energy appears to be the limiting factor in the rations studied. Three lbs. of milo was superior to 1 1/2 lbs. of soybean meal when date of breeding was considered. In the second trial 3 lbs. of alfalfa and 6 lbs. of milo ...
  • Ames, D.R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1973)
    Cattle hides were exposed to cold-wind combinations ranging from -10 ̊F to 35 ̊F and 0 to 35 mph. Heat flow through hides (including hair) was measured and plotted as a function of wind velocity. Prediction equations for ...
  • Woolfolk, J.S.; Conway, K.; Schalles, R.R.; Smith, E.F. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1973)
    A mixture of 60% dehydrated alfalfa crumbles and 40% dry rolled sorghum grain was fed ad lib to calves 30 days before weaning. The calves ate an average of 2.6 lbs. per day and gained 0.32 lbs more per day average during ...
  • McCollough, R.L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1973)
    Two years and 270 head of steers were used to determine the feeding value of 13 hybrid sorghum grains and 2 hybrid corn grains fed in dry-rolled high-concentrate rations fed to finishing steers. The 15 corn and sorghum ...
  • Roth, G.M.; Brent, B.E.; Schalles, R.R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1973)
    Gelatinization was measured in flaked sorghum grain that weighed 16.5 to 47 lbs. a bushel. Samples were steamed from 20 to 50 minutes, and varied in moisture content from 16.9 to 20.9% as they entered the chamber. ...
  • Woolfolk, J.S.; Harbers, L.H.; Schalles, R.R.; Allen, L.J.; Smith, E.F.; Owensby, Clenton E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1973)
    Four hundred ninety-two acres of native bluestem range were divided into nine pastures for summer grazing by yearling steers. Five pastures were burned April 28; four were not burned. Burned and not burned pastures were ...
  • Shiawoya, E.L.; Harbers, L.H.; Evans, J.D.; McKee, R.M (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1973)
    Pregnant Hereford and Angus cows wintered on native bluestem pasture were used to compare soybean-meal and Starea-containing blocks and protein supplements. Cow weight changes were similar with both supplements. Consumption ...
  • Harbers, L.H.; Rao, M.R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1973)
    Digestible protein and energy intakes by steers grazing native bluestem pastures were estimated using prediction equations established at this station. Digestible energy intakes appear to be satisfactory for yearling steers ...
  • Tuma, H.J.; Allen, Dell M.; May, M.L.; Albrecht, M.D.; Dikeman, Michael E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1973)
    This report contains results from the U.S. Meat Animal Research Center Cattle Germ Plasm Evaluation Program. Dr. Keith Gregory and Dr. Hudson Glimp, U.S. Meat Animal Research Center, Clay Center, Nebraska, initiated and ...
  • Wheat, J.D.; Kropf, Donald H.; Chang, C.H.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1973)
    Pigs farrowed in May, 1972, were the first born in the select and control lines. Performances of animals in the two lines were essentially the same. However, ham firmness and color differed significantly (P<0.0l) between ...
  • Allee, G.L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1973)
    Four experiments involving 311 finishing pigs (112 to 220 pounds) were conducted to determine the minimum level of soybean meal necessary to supply all essential amino acids except lysine that are deficient in milo or ...
  • Eckert, T.E.; Allee, G.L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1973)
    Three growth trials and two nitrogen retention trials were conducted with 118 growing pigs to determine the limiting amino acids in milo. Lysine supplementation of the basal milo diet markedly improved daily gain, feed ...
  • Allee, G.L.; Schoneweis, D.A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1973)
    Two trials involving 128 pigs were conducted to study the effects of antibacterial preparations on rate and efficiency of gain by young pigs. In both trials, the antibacterial preparations increased rate of gain. In trial ...
  • Schalles, R.R.; McKee, M.; Evans, J.; Davis, Duane L.; Pitts, C.W. Jr. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1973)
    Controlling flies significantly decreased incidence of pinkeye in cattle on native Flint Hill range. There was no difference in the average weaning weight of groups sprayed or not sprayed. However individuals severely ...
  • Allee, G.L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1973)
    The influence of feeding frequency on performance and nitrogen metabolism in gestating swine was studied by feeding 4 pounds daily, 8 pounds every other day, or 12 pounds every third day. All animals were maintained in dry ...
  • Ferrell, K.C.; Allee, G.L.; Koch, B.A.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1973)
    One hundred eighteen barrows and gilts were used to evaluate adding lysine to a 11.2% crude protein, milo-soybean meal ration. Rate of gain was significantly improved (P<.05) in both barrows and gilts receiving the higher ...
  • Bolsen, K.K.; Riley, Jack G.; Hoover, J.D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1973)
    Two trials were conducted to evaluated four forage sorghum silage additives: ammonium iso-butyrate, aureomycin, sodium hydroxide, and a mixture of acetic and propionic acids. A control silage received no additives.
  • Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1973)
    Nursing litters given a choice of flavored or unflavored diets responded by consuming more flavored diet. Pre-weaning feeding did alter the preference patterns of the post-weaned pigs. Pigs fed only basal ration as creep ...
