  • Bolsen, K.; Ilg, H.; Hinds, M.; Hoover, J.; Pope, Ronald V. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1983)
    Four whole-plant silages produced in 1981 and 1982 were evaluated using 176 calves in two growing trials. Based on comparative rates and efficiencies of gain, feeding values were 115, 100, 78.5, and 62 for the cornlage, ...
  • Laudert, S.; Kuhl, Gerry L.; Schalles, R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1983)
    Implanting incoming feedlot heifers with Ralgro® or Synovex-H® increased weight gain an average of 9.4%. Reimplanting half way through the 119 day feeding period did not improve gain significantly. There were no differences ...
  • Riley, Jack G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1983)
    Results of a 1982 survey were compared to a similar survey conducted 5 years earlier to determine if the acceptance of management practices had changed during that time period. The cow herd size was similar in both surveys ...
  • Bartley, E.E.; Riddell, D.O.; Arambel, M.A.; Dennis, S.M. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1983)
    Benefits have been shown under certain conditions when niacin is added to the diets of beef cattle, dairy cattle or sheep. We attempted to find out what effects added niacin has on the rumen fermentation, and conversely, ...
  • Held, R.; Smith, E.F.; Riley, Jack G.; Owensby, Clenton E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1983)
    Native bluestem pastures were grazed from May 10 to July 15, 1982 by steers averaging 599 lbs, at stocking rates 1.82, 1.5, 1.2 acres per steer. Daily gains were similar for all rates, but gain per acre increased with ...
  • Smith, E.F.; Owensby, Clenton E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1983)
    From 1978 to 1982, steers on a late spring burned pasture averaged 40 lbs more gain each summer than steers on a non-burned pasture.
  • Koch, B.A.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1983)
    One hundred and twenty weaned pigs were used to evaluate the effect of space allowance. Pigs were housed in a control environment nursery with woven wire flooring with 4, 6, 8, 10, or 12 head per 4' x 5' pen which allowed ...
  • Spire, M.F.; Riley, Jack G.; Edwards, A.J. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1983)
    Two trials were conducted to evaluate the effectiveness of revaccinating recently processed cattle with modified live IBR and BVD vaccine. Revaccination decreased total illness 24 to 26%. A significant reduction in clinically ...
  • Schalles, R.R.; Spire, M.; Clarke, C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1983)
    Heavy milking cows took longer to respond to estrus synchronization than light milking cows. There was no difference in response time between cows treated with Estrumate and Lutalyse. Cow weight, height or condition had ...
  • Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1983)
    Two feeding trials involving a total of 320 head of finishing pigs were used to evaluate the effect of feeding an antibiotic to three groups selected from within a farrowing group. Pigs were divided by weight into group A ...
  • Stevenson, Jeffrey S.; Davis, Duane L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1983)
    Our objective was to characterize reproductive performance for sows nursed by only two to four pigs for the last 5 days of lactation. Litter size was reduced beginning at 2 (16 sows), 3 (15 sows), or 4 (15 sows) weeks after ...
  • Hsu, Ali; Allee, G.L.; Pollmann, D.S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1983)
    Nine individual feed ingredients and 12 mixed diets were used in an attempt to select the most suitable regression equation for predicting energy value and nitrogen digestibility from chemical analyses. Samples were analyzed ...
  • Hsu, A; Allee, G.L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1983)
    A rapid in vitro method has been developed to predict digestibilities of nitrogen, dry matter (DM) and energy in feed ingredients and mixed diets for swine. A total of 21 samples, including nine feed ingredients and 12 ...
  • Erickson, Howard H.; Faraci, F.M.; Olsen, S.C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1983)
    Pigs were exercised for 5 minutes at five different treadmill speeds (1.0-1.8 m• sec^-1 ) (3° incline), while oxygen consumption (MO2), carbon dioxide production (MCO2), and the electrocardiogram (ECG) were continuously ...
  • Schoenherr, W.D.; Pollmann, D.S.; Kennedy, G.E.; Schoneweis, D.A.; LaForge, R.R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1983)
    Three experiments were conducted with pigs to examine the influence of two antimicrobial agents on growth, blood parameters, the intestinal flora population and the therapeutic action on mycoplasma pneumonia. The pigs were ...
  • Vargas Vargas, J.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1983)
    Three feeding trials using 480 finishing pigs were conducted to evaluate meal time feeding versus ad libitum feeding. Growth rate and feed required per pound of gain were similar for all treatments. Carcass characteristics, ...
  • Simon, M.; Keay, L.E.; Kiracofe, G.; Riley, Jack G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1983)
    Heifers that were 167 days pregnant when slaughtered gained faster and more efficiently than open heifers, or heifers that had been aborted with a prostaglandin analog at 83 or 138 days, unless the slaughter weight was ...
  • Kropf, Donald H.; Hunt, Melvin C.; Cross, H.R.; Dikeman, Michael E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1983)
