    Growth rate of 38 calves after being weaned at an average of 91.6 days was compared with growing rate of 37 calves averaging 91.2 days of age and continuing to nurse their mothers the same period. Average daily gains ...
  • Schoneweis, D.A.; Allee, G.L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1975)
    Thirty-one litters were used to compare effects of two levels of trace minerals fed dams during gestation on hemoglobin, performance, and health of neonatal pigs. There were no significant differences in number of pigs ...
  • Heersche, G.; Kiracofe, G.H.; McKee, R.M.; Morrison, D.G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1975)
    Estrous synchronization would benefit the cattle industry. Successful methods are not commercially available, so new compounds and treatment procedures are being tested. Treatment with melengestrol acetate, prostaglandin, ...
  • Kropf, J.; McCoy, J. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1975)
    Prices for market barrows and gilts began a significant upward trend in July, 1974. By spring of 1975 hog feeding profits had improved substantially over a year earlier. Improved profits would be expected to lead to ...
  • Bolsen, K.K.; Fink, G.; Riley, Jack G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1975)
    We used 75 yearling steers in a 92-day trial to evaluate three sources of roughage: (1) chopped prairie hay; (2) milo stover silage; and (3) milo stover pellets; and five milo treatments: (1) dry, 85.5% dry matter ...
  • Kropf, Donald H.; Allen, Dell M.; Thouvenelle, G.J. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1975)
    Thirty carcasses, ten each from three groups-short-fed concentrate rations for about 70 days, grass-fed on Flint Hill pasture without supplemental feeding until slaughter in mid-to-late October, and long-fed concentrate ...
  • Wheat, J.D.; Kropf, Donald H.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1975)
    Litters farrowed total 147 (25 in 1971, 23 in 1972, 33 in 1973, 32 in 1974 and 34 in 1975); pigs total 1196, 1102 alive at birth 94 (8%) dead at birth. Line differences in loin eye area, backfat thickness and age (adjusted ...
  • Koch, B.A.; Allee, G.L.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1975)
    Two feeding trials involving 118 finishing Pigs were conducted to determine minimum salt needed in finishing diets. Performance of pigs fed 0.2 to 0.5% salt diets did not differ significantly, but pigs fed 0.1% or no ...
  • Berger, L.L.; Harbers, L.H.; Schalles, R.R.; Smith, E.F.; Owensby, Clenton E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1975)
    Nine pastures totaling 492 acres were summer grazed by yearling Hereford steers. Five pastures were burned April 24, 1974; four were not burned. Burned and nonburned pastures had 0, 40, or 80 lbs. of nitrogen per ...
  • Lipper, R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1975)
    Of several types of processes to capture energy from organic wastes, anaerobic digestion appears to be most attractive for swine wastes. It can stabilize the waste while producing bio-gas or methane gas. The concept has ...
  • Allee, G.L.; Koch, B.A.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1975)
    Seventy-two pigs, 30 days old averaging 17 pounds initially, were used to evaluate lysine additions to 16 and 18 percent protein fortified corn-soybean meal diets. Adding 0.1% or 0.2% L-lysine to the 16% protein diet ...
  • McCoy, J.H.; Price, R.V.; Manuel, M.L.; Ward, C.E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1975)
