  • Allee, G.L.; Nelson, R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1976)
    Three trials involving 166 growing pigs (initial weight 20.5 pounds) and 96 finishing pigs (initial weight 108.7 pounds) were conducted to investigate effects of feeding high-moisture, acid-treated sorghum to swine. Sorghum ...
  • Koch, B.A.; Allee, G.L.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1976)
    Pyridoxine added to finishing rations at two levels did not improve pig performance. Performance of pigs receiving a 20% crude protein broiler ration equalled, but was not better than, that of pigs receiving a standard 16% ...
  • Ames, D.R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1976)
    Two winter trials have indicated that protein can be removed from growing rations during cold weather without lowering average daily gain. Cattle consumed 0.29 and 0.33 lb/hd/da (0.11 and 0.15 kg/hd/da) less protein supplement ...
  • Wheat, J.D.; Kropf, Donald H.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1976)
    Pigs in the control line ate more, grew faster, and were less efficient than those in the select line.
  • Conley, P.B. III; Orwig, T.W.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1976)
    Performance records of 275 boars, beginning at 65 and ending at 250 lbs., were analyzed to determine correlations of performance traits. Fastest growing boars were more efficient (r=-.49). In addition, faster gaining boars ...
  • Schalles, R.R.; Harbers, L.H.; Smith, E.F.; Owensby, Clenton E.; Boggs, Don (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1976)
    Burning and fertilizing Bluestem pastures were evaluated by comparing performances of spring-calving cows and calves that grazed them. Two control-pastures were not burned or fertilized; two pastures were burned; and two ...
  • Allee, G.L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1976)
    Two trials with 47 second-and third-litter sows and one trial involving 40 gilts were conducted to evaluate self-feeding a diet containing 96% dehydrated alfalfa during gestation. Sows were maintained in outside lots ...
  • Balogun, T.F.; Koch, B.A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1976)
    Twenty-four crossbred barrows and gilts averaging 92 lbs. were used to evaluate whole shelled peanut as a protein and energy source for pigs. Pigs used whole peanuts and corn less efficiently than ground peanuts and corn. ...
  • Fink, G.; Riley, Jack G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1976)
    Two hundred ten Hereford x Angus crossbred yearling steers were used in two trials to determine effects of Monensin (trade name Rumensin) on performance and carcass characteristics. Top dressing a protein supplement (crumbles ...
  • Bolsen, K.; Corah, L.; Fink, G.; Riley, Jack G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1976)
    We used 136 Hereford heifer calves in two studies to determine the effect on performance of 200 mg monensin (trade name Rumensin) per head daily. It significantly improved gain by 7.5% and 4.6% in trials 1 and 2 respectively, ...
  • Alle, G.L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1976)
    One hundred twenty finishing pigs averaging 52.9 kg (116 lbs.) initially were used to study effects of fat level and calorie-protein (C:P) ratio on performance and carcass traits of pigs fed a sorghum-soybean meal basal ...
  • Corah, L.; Kimple, K.; McKee, M.; Riley, Jack G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1976)
    Both steer and heifer calves gain significantly (P<.05) faster on summer pasture with growth-promoting implants than calves not implanted. Ralgro, Synovex-S, and Synovex-H were tested, with no significant advantage for ...
  • Hall, M.H.; Smith, W.H.; Schalles, R.R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1976)
    Two inbred lines of Shorthorn beef cattle were established during 1950 to evaluate inbreeding. Analyses of postweaning production data for the first four generations of inbreeding indicate that inbreeding in calves ...
  • Allee, G.L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1976)
    One hundred twenty-six weaned, crossbred pigs averaging 14 kg (31 lbs.) initially were used to evaluate the effects of various methods of processing sorghum grain. Processing methods evaluated were: pelleting, extruding, ...
  • McCoy, J.H.; Price, R.V.; Solomon, R.E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1976)
    Erratic hog prices in recent years have compounded management problems. As a result, interest has increased in ways of tying down prices before the hogs are ready for market. This report presents results of a study of one ...
  • Koch, B.A.; Allee, G.L.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1976)
    Eighty-four pigs averaging 75 lbs. were used to evaluate feeding finishing hogs to 230, 260, or 290 lbs. on two protein regimes. Rate of gain declined after the pigs reached 200 lbs. regardless of protein level, which ...
  • Fink, G.; Riley, Jack G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1976)
    Ninety Angus crossbred steers originating from northwestern Nebraska and averageing 440 lb. were used to evaluate the efficacy of Trolene 40 insecticidal premix to control cattle grubs in feedlot cattle. Thirty steers were ...
  • McKee, M.; Conway, K.L.; Fink, G.; Schalles, R.R.; Bolsen, K.K.; Zoellner, K.O. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1976)
    Eight Hereford, 16 Angus, and 36 part Simmental bulls were tested for 140 days (October 15, 1974 to March 4, 1975) for weight gained. Bulls were divided into four groups and fed four rations that had been formulated for ...
  • Bolsen, K.; Dikeman, Michael E.; Riley, Jack G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1976)
