  • Kastner, Curtis L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1980)
    It has been known for years that electrical stimulation will improve tenderness of meat, but the technique only recently has gained considerable interest in the meat industry. Benjamin Franklin in 1749 observed that ...
  • Huang, K.; Allee, G.L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1980)
    We used 140 crossbred pigs averaging 30.4 lb to determine phosphorus bioavailability with the slope-ratio technique. A standard curve was established by feeding a basal diet 0% inorganic phosphorus and three levels ...
  • Bolsen, K.; Ilg, H.; Riley, Jack G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1980)
    Four corn silages (41 to 46% DM) were made August 23 to 26, 1978; treatments were: 1) no additive (control), 2) 8.16 lbs of Cold-flo ammonia per ton, 3) 1.0 lb of Sila-bac per ton, and 4) 1.0 lb of Silo-Best per ton. ...
  • Busby, W.D.; McKee, M.; Corah, L.R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1980)
    Analysis of breeding records for 128 percentage Simmental females either weaned early (average age 63 days) or conventionally (average age 194 days) showed no statistically significant difference between early-weaned and ...
  • Corah, L.R.; Brazle, F.; Dawes, J.D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1980)
    We assigned 110 cull beef cows of mixed breeding to a control group and a group implanted with 36 mg Ralgro. Ralgro implants improved gains 12.8 lbs (11.2%) over a 59-day grazing period.
  • Nichols, David A.; Ames, D.R.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1980)
    We used 128 barrows averaging approximately 160 lbs. and temperatures of 32, 41, 50, 59, 68, 77, 86 and 95 F to study the effects of temperature on growth and efficiency. No significant differences in performance were ...
  • Corah, L.; Sprott, L.R.; Francis, G.; Kiracofe, G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1980)
    Implanting heifers at weaning time with 12, 24, or 36 mg of Ralgro did not affect reproductive performance of the heifers when bred as yearlings.
  • Allee, G.L.; Noll, M. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1980)
    Sixty pigs from nine 1itters were allotted, 24 hours after birth, by litter, sex, and birth weight to three treatments: A) sow reared, B) artificially reared and fed milk replacer ad libitum twice daily (artificially re ...
  • Schoneweis, D.; Allee, G.L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1980)
    Four-week old weaned pigs demonstrated a marked preference in medicated water consumption depending on form of sulfa. Medicated water consumption was greatly reduced when sulfamethazine was used. Sulfadimethoxine was the ...
  • Corah, L.R.; Plegge, S.D.; Francis, G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1980)
    Implanting at an alternate location (in the muscle or fat pad at the base of the ear) or crushing the pellets did not appear to cause side effects or adversely affect animal performance. However, implanting at the ...
  • Sprott, L.R.; Kiracofe, G.H.; Corah, L.R.; Riley, Jack G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1980)
    Rumensin increased the number of heifers cycling at 394 days of age and tended to decrease the weight at puberty, with no effect on conception or pregnancy. Rumensin also increased average daily gain, total weight change, ...
  • Davis, Duane L.; Craig, J.V.; Nelssen, Jim L.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1980)
    Thirty-two boars (16 littermates) were reared from 3½ to 5½ months in either an all-male group or with fence-line exposure to cycling sows and gilts. Exposure to females did not significantly increase testicle or accessory ...
  • Bolsen, K.; Ilg, H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1980)
    Four alfalfa silages (34 to 37% DM) were made May 30 and 31, 1979, as follows: 1) no additive (control), 2) 3 ounces of Ensila Plus per ton, 3) 1.0 lb of Si1a-1ator per ton, and 4) 1.5 1b of Silo-Guard per ton. Silos were ...
  • Schalles, R.R.; Zoellner, K.O.; Long, K. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1980)
    Calves that gained rapidly before going into the feedlot continued to gain rapidly on feed and were more profitable to both the cow-calf operator and the feeder. When fed to their genetic potential, large frame, heavy, young ...
  • Hsu, A.; Allee, G.L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1980)
    Three feeding trials involving 96 starter pigs, 48 grower pigs and 48 finisher pigs were used to determine the feeding value of alfalfa leaf protein concentrate (ALPC) for swine. ALPC was substituted for 33%, 66% or 100% ...
  • Axe, D.; Ilg, H.; Bolsen, K.; Behnke, Keith C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1980)
    Two finishing trials with heifers and steers were conducted to determine the value of grain dust (GD) to replace cracked corn and to compare soybean meal and urea as protein supplements. Results of the 104-day heifer ...
  • Hayes, D.; Corah, L.; Bartley, E.E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1980)
