  • Stevenson, Jeffrey S.; Davis, Duane L.; Pollmann, D.S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1984)
    Crossbred first-Iitter sows in a commercial swine unit were assigned to serve as controls after summer weanings or were fed altrenogest for 7 days or altrenogest for 7 days plus supplemental fat for 14 days after weaning. ...
  • Harbers, L.H.; Ward, G.M.; Dayton, A.D. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1984)
    The availability of oxalate and non-oxalate calcium in alfalfa was determined using a chick assay. Oxalate-bound calcium was found to contribute only 16% as much influence as nonoxalate calcium. The nonoxalate calcium ...
  • Blecha, Frank; Pollmann, D.S.; Kluber, E.F. III (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1984)
    An experiment was conducted to determine the influence of artificial rearing on the cellular immune response of young pigs. Artificially reared pigs had lower cellular immune reactivity than sow-reared controls. These ...
  • Laudert, S.B.; Davis, G.V. Jr. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1984)
    Finishing yearling steers reimplanted with Synovex-S or Ralgro gained 6.8 and 4.2% faster, respectively, than those implanted with Compudose. However, feed efficiency was not significantly different among treatments. ...
  • Simm, D.; Kuhl, G.; Schalles, R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1984)
    Four field trials were conducted to compare Ralgro, Synovex-S and Compudose implants for growing steer calves. All implant programs significantly increased (P<.01) average daily gain. Reimplanting with Ralgro or Synovex-S ...
  • Simms, D.D.; Schalles, R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1984)
    The comparative growth-promoting value of Compudose, Ralgro, Ralgro + Ralgro reimplant, and Synovex-C + Synovex-C reimplant was evaluated on five Kansas ranches with 674 suckling steer calves in seven trials conducted ...
  • Vargas Vargas, J.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1984)
    Two feeding trials using 240 finishing pigs were conducted to evaluate meal feeding and ad libitum dry and wet feeding. Growth rate was significantly improved by wet feeding in trial 1. Overall, a 5% improvement in growth ...
  • Lee, B.; Laudert, S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1984)
    Synovex-S and STEER-oid were compared in a 133-day finishing trial to evaluate their effects on growth and carcass traits of yearling steers. No significant differences in average daily gain, feed intake, feed to gain ...
  • Pelton, C.D.; Allen, Dell M.; Corah, L.R.; Milliken, George A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1984)
    Our research showed that implanting bulls from birth to slaughter made steaks from bulls as acceptable as steers to consumer panels. Implanting bulls from weaning to slaughter resulted in the least desirable consumer panel ...
  • Blecha, Frank; Pollmann, D.S.; VanWormer, D.M. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1984)
    An experiment was conducted to determine the influence of creep feeding on cellular immunity in young pigs. Creep feeding from 10 days of age to weaning did not influence phytohemagglutinin skin-test responses.
  • Bolsen, K.; Hinds, M.; Ilg, H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1984)
    Laboratory silos were used in three trials to evaluate sudangrass (slightly or moderately wilted) and high moisture corn silages, each receiving the following treatments: (1) control (no additive); (2) CULBAC® dry; (3) ...
  • Ramm, Alexander G. (1984)
    For time-independent and time-dependent inverse source problems the degree of nonuniqueness of solutions is characterized.
  • Morrill, J.L.; Dayton, A.D.; Zmolek, A.J.; Vitcenda, M.A. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1984)
    After preliminary experiments, four trials were conducted to develop and test a new feeding program for calves. The program involves the use of a special feed (a prestarter) to encourage calves to eat dry feed and to ...
  • Li, De-Fa; Allee, G.L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1984)
    A digestion trial was conducted with 12 crossbred barrows averaging 48 lb to evaluate the digestibility of various fat sources. Fat sources evaluated were soybean oil, a 85% dry fat product composed of animal and vegetable ...
  • Christianson, S.; Allee, G.L.; Pollmann, D.S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1984)
    Twelve crossbred sows averaging 337 lb were used to determine apparent nutrient digestibility of three fat sources. Fat sources evaluated were soybean oil, a 85% dry-fat product composed of animal and vegetable fat, and a ...
  • Bolze, R.P.; Corah, L.R.; Pruitt, R.J. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1984)
    Three hundred and seventy four heifers from two Kansas ranches were used to determine if a single Ralgro implant given either at two months of age or at weaning would influence pelvic development and subsequent calving ...
  • Lomas, Lyle W. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1984)
    Feeding actaplanin in a loose mineral mix or twice weekly in a supplement significantly improve gains of grazing steers. The greatest improvement in performance was found with average daily actaplanin intakes of 255 or 257 ...
  • Laytimi, A.; Bolsen, K.; Janicki, B. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1984)
    Replicate, covered wheat straw (WS) stacks were treated with 1.5 or 3.0% anhydrous ammonia in three environmental chambers at 37, 68, or 95 F, for 23 days. Then digestibility was measured (wethers). Rations were 88% wheat ...
  • LaForge, R.R.; Pollmann, D.S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1984)
    A Bacillus subtilus probiotic was tested using a total of 52 sows and 516 baby pigs to determine the effect on enteric colibacillosis control and on host bacterial population. The probiotic did not affect sow or baby pig ...
