  • Dean Bark, L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1984)
    The 1983 weather in Kansas upset carefully laid plans and confounded the best management techniques. Yet the averages for 1982 and 1983 appear very similar. In Manhattan, the average temperatures were 54.04 F for 1982 and ...
  • Janicki, B.; Bolsen, K.; Hinds, M.; Ilg, H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1984)
    Adding urea to forage sorghum greatly increased the ensiling temperature, produced a more rapid and extensive fermentation, and resulted in more shrink loss in the silo. Fermentrol®, an enzyme-inoculant additive, had ...
  • Simms, D.; Kuhl, Gerry L.; Brethour, J. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1984)
    In two trials conducted at the Fort Hays Experiment Station, symptoms of toxicity (hyperexcitability, circling, convulsions, death) were observed in several newborn calves (l to 14 days of age) nursing cows consuming ...
  • Vargas Vargas, J.; Craig, J.V.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1984)
    Twenty finishing pigs were used to evaluate effects of time-restricted feeding on social interactions and feeding patterns of pigs at feeding time. Correlation analysis for pairs of traits, involving feeding activities, ...
  • Stevenson, Jeffrey S.; Davis, Duane L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1984)
    Our objective was to determine the effectiveness of inducing estrus during lactation by temporarily separating the litter from the sow during the last week of lactation. Lactating sows were removed daily from their litters ...
  • Held, R.; Riley, Jack G.; Owensby, Clenton E.; Smith, E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1984)
    Native bluestem pastures were grazed from May 16 to July 14, 1983 by steers with an average beginning weight of 545lbs., at stocking rates of 1.82, 1.5, and 1.25 acres per steer. Daily gains for the high and low stocking ...
  • Bolsen, K.; Axe, D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1984)
    High-moisture forage sorghum silage was fed to 108 steer calves to measure the effect of sodium bicarbonate and feed flavor (Omniflavor®) on calf performance. Overall performance was similar for all three rations by the ...
  • Riley, Jack G.; Pope, Ronald V. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1984)
    Finishing yearling beef steers were used to compare various implant programs in a 167-day trial. All implant programs increased daily gain ranging from 6.6 to 25.4% over non-implanted controls and improved feed efficiency ...
  • Bolsen, K.; Ilg, H.; Hinds, M. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1984)
    In the first trial, calves fed Silo Guard II®-treated forage sorghum silage were 4.2% more efficient than those fed the control silage. Silo Guard II reduced the amount of heat produced during the ensiling process, and ...
  • Bolsen, K.; Ilg, H.; Hinds, M. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1984)
    Silo-Best lowered the ensiling temperature and increased the dry matter recovered from the silo by over 5 percentage units (82.3 vs. 77.3%). Calves fed the control silage gained faster and consumed more feed, but those fed ...
  • Bolsen, K.; Hinds, M.; Brethour, J. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1984)
    Numerous commercial silage additives, whose manufacturers claim will improve silage quality, are available to Kansas farmers and ranchers. We believe that these claims must ultimately be documented with farm-scale research. ...
  • Ramm, Alexander G. (1984)
    It is proved that any potential of a single layer v is identically equal to a potential of a double layer w in the bounded domain, D, and a necessary and sufficient condition for v≡w in Ω=R³/D, the exterior domain, is given.
  • Ramm, Alexander G. (1984)
    From the scattering data one finds the support function or the principal curvatures of the surface of a reflecting obstacle. From either of these data the surface is effectively reconstructed.
  • Simms, D.; Corah, L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1984)
    Simmental cows on two Kansas ranches received either 2 or 3 ml injections of prostaglandin cloprostenol (Estrumate). Dose levels had little effect on response rate in either small or large cows. However, for each unit ...
  • Call, Edward P.; Stevenson, Jeffrey S. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1984)
    Reproductive parameters were evaluated in 5,480 Holstein herds involving 335,673 cows to determine the reported negative genetic effect of production on reproduction. While higher producing herds had a slight decline in ...
  • Plunkett, S.S.; Stevenson, Jeffrey S.; Call, Edward P. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1984)
    Two experiments were conducted in 17 dairy herds in NE Kansas to determine the effectiveness of prostaglandin F2α (PGF) for reducing intervals to conception for cows with silent or unobserved estrus. Cows that failed to ...
  • Dietz, J.C.; Behnke, Keith C.; Deyoe, C.W.; Allee, G.L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1984)
    Nutritional quality and physical conditions were used to evaluate grain sorghum damaged by either the lesser grain borer Rhyzopertha dominica (F.) or by nontoxin-producing fungi. Experimental treatments were: 1) control ...
  • Dietz, J.C.; Behnke, Keith C.; Deyoe, C.W.; Allee, G.L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1984)
    Nutritional quality and physical conditions were used to evaluate grain sorghum damaged by either the lesser grain borer Rhyzopertha dominica (F.) or by nontoxin-producing fungi. Experimental treatments were: 1) control ...
  • Lambert, C.; Brazle, F.; Corah, L.; Schalles, R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1984)
    Since the fall of 1976, 370 calves and 330 yearlings have been fed through the Southeast Kansas Steer Futurities. In four of the last seven years, both age categories have shown profits through the feedlot phase, using ...
  • Ong, Tze-chow; Allee, G.L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1984)
    Three growth trials and two metabolism trials utilizing 236 pigs were conducted to evaluate the effects of amino acids additions to weanling pig diets and to estimate the methionine requirement of weanling pigs using growth ...
