  • Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1981)
    In two feeding trials, the use of whey, steam rolled or ground oats, fishmeal or meat and bone scraps in starter diets for the weaned pig was evaluated. In Trial I, pigs fed the basal corn-soybean meal diet gained 5% slower ...
  • Nichols, David A.; Ames, D.R.; Allee, G.L.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1981)
    Crossbred barrows, observed at temperatures of 62 and 95°F, were fed either a control or a fat added diet. Pigs housed at 95°F ate significantly less feed, gained slower, and were less efficient than littermates housed at ...
  • Kiracofe, G.H.; Heekin, M.; Odde, Kenneth G.; King, M. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1981)
    The ability of the Kamar Heatmount Detector to identify cows ready for insemination 80 hours after two Lutalyse injections was tested with 439 beef cows and heifers. The detector was placed on the rump at the second injection ...
  • Bartley, E.E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1981)
    Liquid supplement manufacturers must provide a product that is effectively utilized and is nontoxic. Toxicity can be reduced if the supplement's pH is below 3.8, but low pH alone does not improve nutritive value. A good ...
  • Smith, E.F.; Behnke, R.; Owensby, Clenton E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1981)
    Steers on a late spring burned bluestem pasture gained 1.4 lbs daily during the summer compared with 1.0 lb. by steers on a nonburned pasture. All steers were implanted with Ralgro at the start of the grazing season (May ...
  • Allee, G.L.; Hsu, P.; Prather, R.S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1981)
    Two trials, involving 108 pigs, were conducted to evaluate the effects of replacing milk protein with various levels of soybean protein in milk replacer diets. Pigs fed diets in which 25 or 50% of the milk protein was ...
  • Bolsen, K.; Ilg, H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1981)
    Inoculant (Sila-bac), non-protein nitrogen (Cold-flo), and alkali (NaOH) silage additives were evaluated with whole-plant forage sorghum silage. All three additives decreased ensiling temperatures. Calves fed Sila-bec or ...
  • Harbers, L.H.; Sapienza, D.A.; Schwanke, L.; Kazemi, S.M.; Smith, E.F. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1981)
    We used steers with esophageal cannulas to measure selenium in burned and unburned bluestem pastures between May and September. Individual variation among steers sampled varied as much as two fold in selenium content. ...
  • Watts, Donald J. (1981)
    This article investigates how traditional patterns of Afghan architecture may lend a culturally sensitive dimension to modern urban planning in Afghanistan. Case studies of traditional Afghan houses reveal common patterns ...
  • Mills, K.W.; Phillips, R.M.; Kelly, B.L.; Baughman, G.L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1981)
    The efficiency of the standard agglutination test, Y-1 mouse adrenal cell test, and infant-mouse gastric test was compared with a recently developed enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) for detecting the K88 pilus ...
  • Davis, Duane L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1981)
    Alternate groups of sows were synchronized, with prostaglandin, to farrow within a certain time or to serve as controls. The objective was to determine if baby-pig survival or litter-weaning weight would be improved by ...
  • Schoneweis, D.; Hummels, S.; Schulteis, L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1981)
    Plasma and milk samples were collected from three sows injected with LA 200 at 4 hours after injection and at 24-hour intervals thereafter. The single dose was calculated at 1 ml/22 pounds.
  • Dietz, J.C.; Behnke, Keith C.; Allee, G.A.; Deyoe, C.W. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1981)
    Using 128 crossbred pigs with an average initial weight of 18.3 Kg, we determined the effect that insect- and fungal-damaged sorghum would have on the pigs' performance. No differences were found in daily feed consumption ...
  • Allen, Dell M.; Kemp, K.E.; Dikeman, Michael E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1981)
    Calves with different USDA frame sizes had similar carcass composition and quality when slaughtered within the recommended weight range for their frame size. Large-framed calves had higher dressing percentages and ...
  • Wu, J.J.; Hunt, Melvin C.; Kropf, Donald H.; Allen, Dell M.; Kastner, Curtis L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1981)
    We compared taste panel and connective tissue characteristics of beef fed a high energy diet with beef fed grass. The high energy diet produced higher USDA quality and yield grades, more rapid weight gain, and increased ...
  • Bolsen, K.; Ilg, H.; Nuwanyakpa, M. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1981)
    Enzyme (Ensila Plus) and alkali (NaOH) silage additives were evaluated with whole-plant wheat silages which were fed with or without alfalfa haylage (45% moisture). Steers fed NaOH silage consumed the most feed but were ...
  • Riley, Jack G.; Pope, Ronald V. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1981)
    We used 168 yearling steers in a 139-day finishing trial to evaluate high levels of chlortetracycline (aureomycin) fed for short periods at regular intervals during finishing. Since liver abscess rate was low for all ...
  • Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1981)
    The use of low or high level antibiotics fed continuously or intermittantly (2 week rotation) to 310 finishing pigs was evaluated in two trials. No significant improvements were noted for rate of gain or feed per lb. of ...
  • Greig, J.K.; Spillman, C.K.; Koch, B.A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1981)
    Exhaust air from a Kansas State University swine-finishing house provides C02 and possibly other gases that are being used by vegetable plants in a KSU green house. In addition, a rock-storage system reduces fuel requirements ...
