  • Koch, B.A.; Allee, G.L.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1974)
    Two experiments involving 144 finishing pigs were conducted to evaluate alfalfa meal in diets of finishing swine. Results indicate that finishing swine can utilize diets with up to 20% alfalfa meal without significantly ...
  • Harrison, K.F.; Good, D.L.; Riley, Jack G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1974)
    A 189-day trial used 280 mixed-breed steers to study effects of various protein levels in finishing steer rations. Rations containing 15.4 or 13.4% crude protein significantly improved rate of gain during the first 42 ...
  • Allee, G.L.; Koch, B.A.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1974)
    Two trials involving 94 pigs were conducted to evaluate blood meal as a supplemental amino acid source in swine diets. Performance of growing pigs was markedly reduced when blood meal completely replaced soybean meal as ...
  • Bolsen, K.K.; Conway, K.L.; Henry, P.; Riley, Jack G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1974)
    Six finishing rations were compared: (1) 10% corn silage, (2) 20% corn silage, (3) 10% wheat head silage, (4) 20% wheat head silage, (5) unprocessed (whole) milage and (6) processed (rolled) milage. Each ration was fed ...
  • Ames, D.; Brink, D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1974)
    Average daily weight gain, feed consumption, and feed efficiency were determined for growing finishing swine reared on metal (aluminum) as opposed to plastic, slatted floor at ambient temperatures of 17, 32, 41 and 46 ̊ ...
  • Heersche, G. Jr.; Kiracofe, G.; McKee, M.; Ames, D.R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1974)
    Thirty of the 50 heifers used in estrous synchronization studies and that received prostaglandin and Syncro-Mate B to synchronize estrus were subjected to sound stress for 48 hours after prostaglandin was injected. Fifty-nine ...
  • Harrison, K.F.; Riley, Jack G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1974)
    A 142-day trial used 36 Angus steers and 63 mixed-breed heifers to study the effects of roughage and protein levels in beef cattle finishing rations. Results from a 13% crude protein ration the first 70 days or a ration ...
  • Berger, L.L.; Schalles, R.R.; Harbers, L.H.; Smith, E.F.; Owensby, Clenton E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1974)
    Burning and fertilizing pastures were evaluated on six Bluestem pastures by comparing performances by spring-calving cows and calves. Two control pastures were not burned or fertilized, two pastures were burned, and two ...
  • Koch, B.A.; Allee, G.L.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1974)
    A system for aerobic oxidation of waste has been used continuously since 1968 and is now functioning successfully. Figure 11.1 shows general design of the units. Originally "paddle wheels" were used to circulate liquid ...
  • Bolsen, K.K.; Berger, L.L.; Riley, Jack G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1974)
    Three alfalfa treatments were evaluated in a steer performance trial: (1) direct-cut and ensiled with dry milo, (2) field-wilted and ensiled, with milo added at feeding and (3) baled, with milo added at feeding. The ...
  • Bolsen, K.K.; Armbruster, S.; Caley, Homer K., 1922-; Fink, G.; Riley, Jack G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1974)
    Inoculating newly arrived feeder calves with 250 ml. rumen fluid did not stimulate weight gain or decrease sickness. One hundred seventy steer calves were used in the 31 day study.
  • Davis, Duane L.; Schalles, R.R.; Kiracofe, G.; Good, D.L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1974)
    Winter nutrition requirements for beef cows grazing native tallgrass range in the Flint Hills were studied from 1968 through 1973. Three lb. milo was a better supplement to the basic ration of 3 lb. alfalfa hay than 1 ...
  • Ferrell, K.C.; Allee, G.L.; Koch, B.A.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1974)
    Feeding trials involving each sex (boars, barrows and gilts) of finishing-weight pigs were conducted to determine the value of adding lysine to the rations. Rations containing 0.55% lysine were adequate for performance ...
  • Bolsen, K.K.; Boyett, G.; Riley, Jack G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1974)
    Five rations (involving 4 forage treatments) were compared: (1) forage sorghum silage, (2) forage sorghum silage ensiled with organic acids , (3) milo stover pellets, (4) milo stover silage and (5) milo stover silage ...
  • Laudert, S.; Allee, G.L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1974)
    Sunflower seed (SFS) was evaluated as a feedstuff for growing and finishing swine. In all trials, SFS was added on an isolysine basis: 10 parts SFS replacing 8 parts corn and 2 parts soybean meal. Replacement levels were ...
  • Allee, G.L.; Koch, B.A.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1974)
