  • Bolsen, K.; Oltjen, J. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1978)
    Wheat, barley, or oat silages can provide excellent alternatives to corn and sorghum silages for beef cattle. Wheat, barley, oat, and corn silages were fed to steers in seven ...
  • McKee, M.; Fink, G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1978)
    Percentage Simmental and Hereford calves gained slightly more (13 lbs./hd) while nursing their mothers than 83 herd mates that were weaned early at 49 (+27) days of age. Percentage Simmental cows whose calves were weaned ...
  • Peverley, B.; Corah, L.; McKee, M. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1978)
    Ninety-one Simmental-Hereford and Hereford cows in early gestation were used to compare three rations in a 106-day trial: (1) wheat straw, (2) wheat tailings, and (3) soaked wheat straw. Each was fed to groups of lactation ...
  • Schoneweis, D.A.; Gaeth, V. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1978)
    Colibacillosis is still a costly disease to swine producers in spite of new antibiotics and other products and procedures used to prevent or treat the disease. A recent aid in controlling the disease is the oral E. coli ...
  • Schoneweis, D.A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1978)
    Marked enlargement and edema of the vulva are often noted in newborn gilts. An accompanying, but less conspicuous, lesion is enlarged, engorged mammary glands. Although not fully understood, the changes are thought to ...
  • Thompson, W.; Oltjen, J.; Bolsen, K.; Ilg, H.; Riley, Jack G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1978)
    Sudangrass, sorghum-sudan, forage sorghum, and corn silages were full-fed to yearling steers for 70-or 91-day growing periods. For both periods, steers fed corn silage outperformed steers fed any other silage. In the 70-day ...
  • McKee, M.; Kimple, K.; Ames, D.R.; Willms, C.L.; Corah, L.R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1978)
    Cows in mid-to-late gestation gained weight when fed either milo stover silage or alfalfa hay-wheat straw but lost weight when the forage source was milo-stover bales. When supplemented with additional corn grain as ...
  • Wheat, J.D.; Kropf, Donald H.; Na-Lampang, P.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1978)
    Select line pigs were compared with those in the control line for growth patterns, production traits, and carcass quality. Heritability and genetic correlations were calculated for certain production and carcass traits ...
  • Pruitt, R.; Fleck, A.; Smith, E.F.; Corah, L.; Owensby, Clenton E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1978)
    Reimplanting Ralgro in mid-July after implanting in late April did not improve daily summer gains compared to a single implant.
  • Smith, E.F.; Schalles, B.; Harbers, L.; Pruitt, R.; Owensby, Clenton E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1978)
    Long term (28 years) annual, late spring burning of bluestem pasture produced the most daily gain of all pasture treatments but not significantly more than stocking intensively early. Nitrogen applied to a late-spring-burned ...
  • Carnahan, D.H.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1978)
    Forty-seven Yorkshire barrows were selected for large and small scale test groups by using body height and length as a selection index. Initially the index between groups differed; however, the same measurements gave ...
  • McKee, M.; Kimole, K.; Corah, L.R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1978)
    Cows in mid-to-late gestation gained significantly (P<.05) more while grazing milo stover supplemented on alternative days with 4 lbs. per head of a natural protein than cows with no protein supplement. Although protein ...
  • Brent, B.E.; Chestnut, A.; George, P. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1978)
    Tables based on a mathematical model are presented that allow cost of gains by steers at various weights to be calculated. An example illustrate how to use the tables to help with economic decisions.
  • Allee, G.L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1978)
    We used 96 crossbred pigs averaging 8.3 kg (19.3 lbs.) to compare performances with sorghum, corn, or wheat with 0 or 4% added fat (tallow). The trial ended when pigs averaged approximately 220 pounds. Grain source (sorghum, ...
  • Skoch, E.R.; Binder, S.F.; Deyoe, C.W.; Allee, G.L.; Behnke, Keith C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1978)
    One hundred forty-six pigs were used to study the effects of steam pelleting a corn-soybean meal diet on pig performance. Treatments included ground meal, meal steam conditioned to 80 C (176 ̊F) before pelleting, meal ...
  • Leipold, H.W.; Scarsi, R.; Schoneweis, D.; Milleret, R.; Phillips, R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1978)
    An epidemiologic survey was conducted on ten swine farms in Kansas and two in Nebraska (1878 piglets in 251 litters) to determine the incidence, clinical signs, and cause of myoclonia corrgenita. The percentage of litters ...
  • Koch, B.A.; Allee, G.L.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1978)
    Two trials were conducted to evaluate the benefits of modifying the KSU swine finishing barn by adding hovers, flooring, or both with and without supplemental heat. In trial 1, pigs with no supplemental heat, hover or ...
  • Harbers, L.H.; Umoh, J.E.; Raiten, D.A.; Chaffin, V.K. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1978)
