  • Leipold, H.W.; Ely, R.; Schoneweis, D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1978)
    This report documents experimental reproduction of tetramelic arthrogryposis in purebred Yorkshire swine by breeding trials. Data from the trials indigated arthrogryposis may be due to homozygosity of a simple autosomal ...
  • Allen, Dell M.; Hunt, Melvin C.; Kropf, Donald H.; Chen, V.; Corte, O.; Gutowski, G.H.; Harrison, A.R.; Kuntapanit, C.; Thomas, J.D.; McCurry (Smith), M.E.; Kastner, Curtis L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1978)
    This report terminates a 3-year study and includes data from this past year. Previous results were reported in the 1976 and ’77 Cattlemen’s Day Report.
  • Ames, D.R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1978)
    Nutrient requirements for domestic animals (NRC) published by the National Research Council are the best estimates available. For beef cattle, specific tables are listed for animals of different weights and for various ...
  • Allee, G.L.; Salava, J. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1978)
    Recent research at the University of Nebraska suggest that feeding sows high level of fat (15-20%) during late gestation and lactation may increase energy stores in the newborn pig and increase their survival. Adding fat ...
  • Laaser, G.N.; Kiracofe, G.H.; Heekin, M.D.; Ward, H.S.; Odde, Kenneth G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1978)
    Twelve cows were given a preliminary treatment of testosterone proprionate and were used to help us detect other cows in heat. We used two types of testosterone booster treatments to maintain male sex behavior in both age ...
  • Riley, Jack G.; Pope, Ronald V. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1978)
    We used 210 yearling Hereford heifers to evaluate the efficacy of Aureomycin and Rumensin fed alone and in combination. Each product is cleared by the FDA for use in feedlot rations as an individual feed additive, however, ...
  • Corah, L.R.; Fleck, A.; McKee, M.; Schalles, R.R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1978)
    Effect of varying energy levels fed during gestation on reproduction and calf performance were studied in three trials involving 266 first calf heifers. Reducing energy during mid-gestation did not adversely affect the ...
  • Nichols, David A.; Ames, D.R.; Allee, G.L.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1978)
    Fat and lean pigs were observed at temperatures of 0(32F), 5(41F), 10(50F), 15(59F), and 20C(68F). In comparing fat and lean pigs no significant differences were observed in feed-to-gain ratio or average daily gain. Pigs ...
  • Thulin, A.J.; Allee, G.L.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1978)
    Two hundred twenty-eight Yorkshire pigs, weaned at 5 weeks of age and averaging 8.4 kg. (18.46 lbs) were used to determine how feeding them various levels of oats, oat hulls, and oats plus fat would effect their performance. ...
  • Kiracofe, G.H.; Odde, Kenneth G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1978)
    We analyzed date on 1536 fall calving Angus cows to determine the effect of post-partum breeding interval on conception rates in beef cows. Normal fertility was observed for cows showing heat 40 or more days post-partum.
  • Riley, Jack G.; Tobyne, D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1978)
    We used 180 yearling Hereford and Angus x Hereford crossbred steers averaging 643 pounds in a 139-day, feedlot trial to evaluate steer performance when the systemic grub control pesticide Ronnel was fed at 5 levels; 1, 16, ...
  • Corah, L.R.; Wary, R.T.; Schwartz, F.; McKee, M.; Schalles, R.R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1978)
    Three trials were conducted to study the effect on calf weight gains from using two 36-mg. Ralgro implants during the suckling period. Two Ralgro implants 60 to 90 days apart improved the average weight gain during the ...
  • Binder, S.F.; Skoch, E.R.; Deyoe, C.W.; Allee, G.L.; Behnke, Keith C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1978)
    One hundred forty, three-week old weanling pigs were used to evaluate the effects of feeding a heat-processed, predigested liquid diet. In Trial I, pigs were randomly allotted to a dry crumbled diet or a processed liquid ...
  • Riley, Jack G.; Newby, S.L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1978)
    Soybean oil or corn oil when fed at 0, 2, 4, or 6% of the ration did not significantly reduce methane production or alter the ratios of volatile fatty acids. Soybean oil was superior to corn oil in reducing methane, and ...
  • Allen, Dell M.; Hunt, Melvin C.; Kropf, Donald H.; Harrison, A.R.; Brent, B.E.; Riley, Jack G.; Kastner, Curtis L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1978)
    We used 150 Angus yearling steers of similar background from the Livestock and Meat Industry Council cattle-flow project. Each was assigned to one of the 12 treatments (10 per treatment) involving low-, medium-, and ...
  • Corah, L.; Kiracofe, G.; Bridson, V.; McKee, M.; Schalles, R.R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1978)
    Although this is based on only ones years’ results, it indicates that the breeding potential of yearling bulls can be determined before they are run with a cow herd. In this test one bull sired the majority of the calves ...
  • Schoneweis, D.A.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1978)
    Litters offered a concentrated milk replacer and the vitamin amino acid, iron-electrolyte supplement, weighed the same as control litters at day 10, 14, 21, and 28. Blood analysis revealed no difference in packed cell ...
  • Allee, G.L.; Noll, M. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1978)
