  • Keay, L.E.; Kiracofe, G.; Simon, M.; Riley, Jack G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1983)
    The effectiveness of alfaprostol in inducing abortion was tested in 93 pregnant heifers. Alfaprostol was injected intramuscularly, .7 mg per 100 pounds body weight. Twenty-four heifers were injected when they averaged 83 ...
  • Soderlund, S.; Bolsen, K.; Ilg, H.; Hoover, J. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1983)
    Steers fed Silo Guard II® treated corn silage gained 3.5% faster and were 8.3% more efficient than those fed the control silage. Cornlage (54% dry matter corn silage in an oxygen-limiting structure) produced numerically ...
  • Shivas, S.D.; Kropf, Donald H.; Hunt, Melvin C.; Kendell, J.L.A.; Dayton, A.D.; Kastner, Curtis L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1983)
    Adding .05 and .10% ascorbic acid to ground beef resulted in brighter color and longer display life, more intense taste panel beef flavor and less rancidity. Those advantages should encourage centralized retail cutting and ...
  • Harbers, L.H.; Ward, G.M.; Kahrs, A.J. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1983)
    Alfalfa, clovers, soybean meal and cottonseed meal have part of their calcium tied up as insoluble calcium oxalate. The oxalate crystals are relatively unavailable to animals and could be an important consideration in ...
  • Bolze, R.P.; Pruitt, R.J.; Corah, L.R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1983)
    Eight years of records for 1495 2-year old beef heifer calvings from two Kansas ranches were analyzed to determine the cause and effect• of calving difficulty on subsequent reproductive performance and weaning weights ...
  • Hinds, M.; Bolsen, K.; Ilg, H.; Milliken, George A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1983)
    Experimental 5 gallon plastic silos were used in three trials to evaluate these alfalfa and corn silages: 1) control (no additive); 2) CULBAC® culture; 3) McNess ® inoculant; 4) SILA-GREEN® inoculant; and 5) Biomax SI ...
  • Brazle, F.; Kuhl, G.; Wary, T.; Lanham, Dale L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1983)
    Steers on native grass consumed equal amounts of mixtures containing 50% trace mineralized salt and either 50% bone meal or 50% calcium phosphate. Lactating cows consumed about 60% more of the bone meal:salt mixture. This ...
  • Schalles, R.R.; Bolsen, K.; Dikeman, Michael E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1983)
    No differences were found in total feed energy required to produce a pound of retail cuts between breeds or management systems. However, across breeds, faster gaining steers were more efficient. When yardage, facilities, ...
  • Simms, D.; Dinkel, A.; Jepsen, D.; Schalles, R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1983)
    Two field trials were conducted to compare Ralgro and Compudose for suckling steer calves. Ralgro, Ralgro re-implanted, and Compudose increased gain over controls 2.5. 5.9, and 1.5%, respectively, with only the increase ...
  • Heekin, M.D.; Kiracofe, G.H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1983)
    Testosterone propionate and testosterone enanthate treated cows were equally effective as heat detectors but the testosterone enanthate treatment required at least 9 fewer injections and less time from first injection unit ...
  • Laudert, S.; Eder, J.; Kuhl, G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1983)
    Compudose implanted feedlot steers performed similarly to steers initially implanted with Ralgro and reimplanted with Synovex-S. Steers lost 2.9% of the Compudose implants.
  • Nichols, David A.; Murphy, James P.; Vic Robbins, F. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1983)
    Twenty eight sows and gilts were used to evaluate the value of drip sprinkling to reduce heat stress in lactating sows. Respiration rates for sprinkled sows were significantly lower than those of controls. Daily feed intake ...
  • Shivas, S.D.; Kastner, Curtis L.; Dikeman, Michael E.; Hunt, Melvin C.; Kropf, Donald H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1983)
    We found steaks cut from inside rounds (chilled fast or slow) of electrically stimulated and hot boned bull carcasses, to be similar to conventionally processed steaks in taste panel, shear force and cooking loss characteristics.
  • Corah, L.; O'Neill, S.; Riley, Jack G.; Pope, Ronald V. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1983)
    Steers consuming a free choice mineral mix containing Aureomycin (437 mg per hd per day) gained 15.3% faster than controls during a 129 day grazing trial on brome grass pasture. There was considerable variation in daily ...
  • Allee, G.L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1983)
    Three trials involving 61 litters of pigs were conducted to evaluate the effects of creep feeding and creep diet on weaning weight and subsequent performance in the nursery. Pigs offered a commercial milk replacer pellet ...
  • Pruitt, D.; Corah, L.; Kiracofe, G.; McKee, M.; Spire, M. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1983)
    Simmental and Hereford bulls were fed individually three levels of energy per breed for 200 days beginning shortly after weaning. Then all bulls were adjusted to a roughage ration for 10 days, before grazing brome pasture ...
  • Kluber, E.F. III; Pollmann, D.S.; Blecha, Frank (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1983)
    Two trials were conducted with a total of 112 artificially reared pigs to evaluate the effect feeding Streptococcus faecium. The areas studied were growth and feed efficiency, mortality rate, daily scour score, blood ...
  • Jensen, M.A.; Blecha, Frank; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1983)
    Housing pigs in a thermal stress environment reduced gain, intake and feed efficiency. Cell mediated immunity responses were lower under the constant heat stress as well as when the temperature was lowered to a thermal ...
