  • Vanmiddlesworth, J.; Schalles, R.R.; Milliken, George A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1975)
    We developed a procedure to compare yearling weight ratios of a calf crop when the calves have been on different management or feeding regimes This procedure will also produce more meaningful sire and dam summaries.
  • Koch, B.A.; Allee, G.L.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1975)
    Duroc weaned pigs given a choice of feed containing an aromatic or sugar chose diets containing 5% sugar. The preference pattern was altered by pre-weaning feeding in that pigs tended to consume the initial ration. ...
  • Harbers, L.H.; Teague, R.D.; Riley, Jack G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1975)
    When calcium chloride was added to a mixture of minerals and urea in molasses, the minerals had not settled after the mixture was shipped 350 miles and stored 4 weeks. Calcium carbonate added to a similar supplement caused ...
  • Berger, L.L.; Schalles, R.R.; Harbers, L.H.; Smith, E.F.; Owensby, Clenton E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1975)
    Burning and fertilizing treatments on six Bluestem pastures were evaluated by comparing performance of spring-calving cows and calves that grazed them. Two control pastures were not burned or fertilized, two pastures were ...
  • Schalles, R.R.; Kiracofe, G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1975)
    The reproductive performance of a herd of Polled Hereford cows was evaluated over an eight year period. Culling cows the first time they were open would not have improved the future calving rates in this herd. The cost of ...
  • Warren, J.H.; Smith, E.F.; Schalles, R.R.; Berger, L.; Fink, G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1975)
    We found no advantage for creep feeding calves for either all summer or 37 days prior to weaning. All calves were with their dams on native pasture. Calves not creep fed or creep fed only 37 days before weaning were sick ...
  • Fink, G.; Riley, Jack G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1975)
    Three trails used 264 steers to evaluate the effects of 36 mg zeranol (Ralgro) and 20 mg estradiol benzoate plus 200 mg progresterone (Synovex-S) implants on performance of steers during one growing and two finishing ...
  • Harrison, K.F.; Fink, G.; Riley, Jack G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1975)
    one growing trial and two finishing trials we used 264 steers. Rations containing 13.2% crude protein during the 105-day growing trial significantly (P<.05) improved rate of gain gain compared with 11.3% crude protein ...
  • McKee, M.; Conway, K.L.; Fink, G.; Schalles, R.R.; Bolsen, K.K.; Zoellner, K.O. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1975)
    Thirty-nine Angus, Hereford, and part Simmental bulls were tested 140 days (December 18, 1973 to May 6,1974) for weight gained. Bulls were divided into four groups and fed four different rations that had been formulated ...
  • Koch, B.A.; Allee, G.L.; Schoneweis, D.A.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1975)
    Ten mg. of iron per day fed orally 24 days in addition to 150 mg. injected when pigs were 3 days old did not significantly increase Hb of baby pigs. Neither did it increase average daily gain or weight-per-day-of-age at ...
  • Allee, G.L.; Riley, Jack G.; Koch, B.A.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1975)
    Two trials involving 105 finishing pigs (initial average weight 125 pounds) and 55 growing pigs (initial average weight 28 pounds) were conducted to determine the nutritional value of high-moisture, acid-treated milo in ...
  • Morrison, D.G.; Kiracofe, G.H.; Heersche, G. Jr.; Schalles, R.R.; McKee, M. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1975)
    Calving was induced in 44 Polled Hereford cows at 275 days’ gestation. Twenty mgs. Of dexamethasone (Azium) given intramuscularly caused parturition an average of 43.1 hours after injection (range 21 to 57). An injection ...
  • Morrison, D.G.; Kiracofe, G.H.; Heersche, G. Jr.; Schalles, R.R.; McKee, M. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1975)
    Eighty-three cows were each treated with a nine-day Syncro-mate B ear implant and one estrogen and progesterone injection. After implant removal, cows were artificially inseminated either 48, 54 or 60 hours later or 12 ...
  • Koch, B.A.; Allee, G.L.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1975)
    Increasing the alfalfa meal to 30% in a finishing pig diet did not significantly reduce average daily gain when tallow was also added to maintain the caloric density of the ration. Digestibility of dry matter and gross ...
  • Koch, B.A.; Allee, G.L.; Lipper, R.I.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1975)
    The Kansas State University Swine research Unit's aerobic-oxidation waste disposal system is functioning satisfactorily with minimum maintenance and supervision. Labor requirements are low. Odor is no problem. Waste fluid ...
  • Koch, B.A.; Allee, G.L.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1975)
    Growing and finishing pigs consumed from 54 to 64 grams of Microlite per head per day when it was available free choice from a self-feeder. It had no measurable affect on average daily gain, feed consumption, feed efficiency, ...
  • Bolsen, K.K.; Fink, G.; Riley, Jack G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1975)
