  • Vanderlip, R. L.; Schneider, L.R.; Bolsen, K.K. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1974)
    Last year in Kansas approximately 3.8 million acres produced 243 million bushels of grain sorghum plus a large amount of forage left in the field as a potential source of feed for livestock. The objective of this report ...
  • Bolsen, K.K.; Conway, K.L.; Riley, Jack G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1974)
    Two trials were conducted to evaluate two varieties of wheat head silage (Parker and Blue Boy) and whole-plant corn silage in growing rations for steers. Each silage was fed to 21 steers for 122 days. All steers ...
  • McKee, M.; Bolsen, K.K.; Conway, K.L.; Fink, G.; Riley, Jack G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1974)
    An 85-day, post weaning growth rate for 30 calves weaned at an average age of 110.5 days was compared with the growth rate of 30 calves nursing their mothers the same period. Average age of the nursing calves at the start ...
  • Koch, B.A.; Allee, G.L.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1974)
    Pigs fed rations containing waxy endosperm corn and those fed normal corn responded similarly in digestion and growing trials. Likewise, finishing pigs responded similarly when fed the two corns in digestion and growing trials.
  • Heersche, G. Jr.; Kiracofe, G.; McKee, M.; Davis, Duane L.; Brower, G.R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1974)
    Forty-seven of 50 heifers were in estrus 1 to 5 days after an injection of prostaglandin given when an ear implant of Synchro-mate B was removed. The implant had been in place one week. Thirty of the 47 (63.8%) heifers with ...
  • Trotter, M.; Allee, G.L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1974)
    A growth trial and a nitrogen retention trial were conducted to determine the sulfur amino acid requirement of the growing pig. Adding 0.10% DL-methionine to a 14.1% protein basal diet containing 0.21% sulfur amino ...
  • Trotter, M.; Allee, G.L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1974)
    A growth and two nitrogen retention studies were conducted to determine the sulfur amino acid requirement of the finishing pig. Adding 0.10% DL-methionine to a 9.0% protein semi-purified basal diet containing 0.14% total ...
  • Allee, G.L.; Koch, B.A.; Knake, R.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1974)
    In a three-week feeding trial for 30 growing pigs (70 lbs.), we compared diets formulated by using 1973 sprout damaged sorghum grain from two Kansas areas. No palatability problems were noted, weight gains were similar ...
  • Harbers, L.H.; Shiawoya, E.L.; Conway, K.; McKee, R.M. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1974)
    Similar gains and adjusted weaning weights can be expected from calves whose dams are wintered on soybean meal or Starea protein blocks. Rebreeding time is expected to be similar for both groups of dams.
  • Wheat, J.D.; Kropf, Donald H.; Chang, C.H.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1974)
    Line differences in weight, litter size at different ages, and in age, loin eye area, and backfat thickness of pigs (adjusted to 200 pounds live weight) were not significant. Sex differences in weight and backfat thickness ...
  • Berger, L.L.; Harbers, L.H.; Schalles, R.R.; Smith, E.F.; Owensby, Clenton E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1974)
    Nine pastures of 492 acres were summer grazed by yearling steers. Five were burned April 24, 1973; four were not burned. Burned and nonburned pastures had 0, 40, or 80 lbs. of nitrogen per acre applied aerially. Stocking ...
  • Shiawoya, E.L.; Harbers, L.H.; Bolsen, K.K.; Riley, Jack G.; Dikeman, Michael E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1974)
    Protein supplements composed of either soybean meal, a combination of soybean meal and urea, or milo Starea improved gain 5% and feed efficiency 4% over supplements of either urea or wheat Starea (P<.25). Cost of gain ...
  • Koch, B.A.; Allee, G.L.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1974)
    Using. sixty barrows and gilts, we evaluated five protein sequences for finishing swine. Pigs fed rations containing 16% protein until they weighed 140 lbs., then 12% protein until they weighed 190 lbs., and there after ...
  • McKee, M.; Schalles, R.R.; Zoellner, K.O. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1974)
    Three trials with Angus, Hereford, and Shorthorn bulls produced in the University teaching herd were conducted to determine effects of 10, 12, or 14% calculated crude protein levels in grain rations. In trial 1, the 10% ...
  • Allee, G.L.; Koch, B.A.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1974)
    To determine the minimal level of supplemental phosphorus required by growing pig, ninety pigs averaging 34 pounds were randomly assigned from outcome groups to 18 pens representing three replications of six dietary ...
  • 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 ...
  • Bolsen, K.K.; Boyett, G.; Riley, Jack G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1974)
