  • Chestnut, A.; Brent, B.E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1977)
    We are developing mathematical models to show how feed intake, rate of gain, and feed efficiency change during the finishing period. When finished, the models might be used to predict when to sell cattle to maximize profit ...
  • Mosier, J.E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1977)
    From January, 1976, to January, 1977, I served as chairman of a subcommittee of the National Advisory Food &Drug Consultants charged with examining several issues concerned with the "Use of Antibiotics in Animal Feeds". ...
  • Allee, G.L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1977)
    Eighty-four crossbred pigs averaging 43.6 kg. (95.9 lbs.) initially were used to evaluate the use of a blended dried bakery product (BDBP) in rations for finishing pigs. Replacing 0, 10, 20, or 30% of the sorghum in the ...
  • Allee, G.L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1977)
    A growth trial, a digestion trial, and a preference trial were conducted to evaluate a blended dried bakery product (BDBP) as an ingredient in swine starter rations. Replacing 0, 10, 20, or 30% corn with BDBP had no effect ...
  • Greer, J.G.; Davis, Duane L.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1977)
    Forty-two boars averaging 67 lbs. were used to study how various levels of calcium and phosphorus in their feed affected their development. Calcium-to phosphorus ratios of 1.2 to 1 were maintained in all treatment diets, ...
  • Allen, Dell M.; Hunt, Melvin C.; Kropf, Donald H.; Gutowski, G.; Harrison, A.; Smith, M.E.; Kastner, Curtis L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1977)
    Thirty-eight crossbred steers of known background were randomly assigned to four feeding regimes. All initially were fed on a brome and bluestem pasture supplemented during winter with alfalfa and protein. Ten grass-fed ...
  • Koch, B.A.; Kruckenberg, S.M.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1977)
    Forty-eight Yorkshire pigs averaging 35 lbs. were used to compare their performance under these feeding sequences: (A) mecadox plus banminth, received until weighing 75 lbs., followed by terrarnyci n to 125 lbs.; (B) ...
  • DeBenedetti, R.C.; Kiracofe, G.H.; Ward, H.S.; McKee, R.M. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1977)
    One hundred seven of 112 heifers were in estrus 1 to 5 days after an injection of prostaglandin F2α given when a 7-day synchronization implant was removed. Checks for estrus were made every four hours and heifers were ...
  • Kimple, K.; McKee, M.; Fink, G.; Conway, K. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1977)
    Performances of 125 commercial Hereford-cross and percentage Simmental calves were evaluated by comparing early weaning at 50 days of age (+25), nursing calves receiving a creep in drylot, and calves nursing in drylot ...
  • Allee, G.L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1977)
    Eight-four crossbred gilts initially averaging 8.2 kg. (18.0 lbs.) were used to evaluate the effects of supplemental choline to corns-soybean meal rations on pig performance. Four levels of choline were fed during each ...
  • Corah, L.; Bolsen, K.; McKee, M.; Riley, Jack G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1977)
    Seventy five purebred heifers were used to determine whether Monensin, (trade name Rumensin) fed during the initial growing period after weaning, would affect the reproductive performance of yearling heifers. Rumensin ...
  • Allee, G.L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1977)
    Seventy-two crossbred finishing pigs averaging 55.9 kg. (123.0 lbs.) were used (in a 3 x 2 factorial design) to compare performance when fed sorghum, corn, or wheat with 0 or 4% added fat (tallow). There were no significant ...
  • Tobyne, D.; Fink, G.; Riley, Jack G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1977)
    We used 72 Hereford and Hereford x Angus cross yearling steers to further evaluate 200 mg Monensin (trade name Rumensin) per head daily. Monensin improved gain 6.7% and significantly improved efficiency, 12.3%.
  • Corah, L.R.; McKee, M.; Schalles, R.R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1977)
    One hundred twenty-seven suckling calves were allotted to one of three treatments: (1) Control group - not implanted (2) Implanted (Ralgro) once during sucking period (3) Implanted (Ralgro) twice during sucking period ...
  • Schoneweis, D.A.; Allee, G.L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1977)
    Two trials involving 33 litters of pigs and more than 1,300 blood samples demonstrated that feeding iron proteinate (250 PPM) to the sows during the last one-third of gestation and lactation is not an effective way to ...
  • Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1977)
    A feeding trial utilizing one-hundred and twelve growing-finishing Duroc pigs was conducted to evaluate the effect of buquinolate (0, 30, 60, or 90g/t) in their diets on growth, efficiency, and carcass quality. Pigs fed ...
  • Greig, J.K.; Spillman, C.K.; Koch, B.A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1977)
    Exhaust air from the Kansas State University swine farrowing house provides most of the heat needed in a greenhouse adjacent to it. The air apparently is not toxic to any of the vegetable plants tested. Tomato plants in ...
  • Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1977)
