  • Kube, J.C.; Shirley, John E.; Frantz, K.D.; Stevenson, Jeffrey S. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2012-10-04)
    Lactating dairy cows were introduced to a computer feeder in early (≤120 days in milk or D.I.M.), mid (120-220 D.I.M.), and late (>220 D.I.M.) lactation. Cows in the mid- and late-lactation groups adjusted quicker and ...
  • Schneider, J.D.; Tokach, Michael D.; Goodband, Robert D.; Nelssen, Jim L.; DeRouchey, Joel M.; Dritz, Steven S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2009-10-20)
    A total of 208 sows and 288 gilts (PIC Line C29) were used to determine the influence of feeding frequency (2 versus 6 times per day) in gestation on performance and welfare measurements. The experiment was conducted on ...
  • Walker, D.K.; Higgins, James J.; Johnson, B.J.; Titgemeyer, Evan C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-08-02)
    An experiment was conducted to evaluate the interaction between steroidal implantation and feeding ractopamine on nitrogen retention, blood metabolites, and messenger RNA (mRNA) expression. Six Holstein steers (initially ...
  • Menzies, C.M.; Banbury, Evans E.; Elliott, H. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-04-28)
    The ewe flock is handled in an early lambing program with the breeding season beginning around June 1 and ending September 1. All lambs are sold as milkfat lams during the spring and early summer. Two separate tests were ...
  • Lawrence, T.E.; Stephens, J.W.; Obuz, E.; Davis, J.R.; Dikeman, Michael E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-08-04)
    We explored the mechanism(s) of calcium- induced tenderization in calcium-enhanced beef muscle. At 72 hours postmortem, we injected (9% by weight) beef strip loins (n=15) with 0, 0.05, 0.1, 0.2, or 0.4 M calcium chloride ...
  • Hillman, M.; Menzies, C.; Banbury, Evans E. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-05-05)
    150 two-year-old ewes were divided into two groups April 25, 1960, and fed different rations until May 12, or 17 days. One group was given a low-energy ration of 2 pounds of alfalfa hay per ewe per day; the other, a normal ...
  • Menzies, C.; Banburry, E. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-10-03)
    This sheep project was initiated in the spring of 1959 as a new research project at the Colby Branch Experiment Station in cooperation with the Department of Animal Husbandry, Kansas State University. One hundred fifty-one ...
  • Menzies, C.S.; Banbury, Evans E.; Elliott, H. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-04-28)
    The ewe flock is handled in an early-lambing program with the breeding season beginning June 1 and terminating September 1. Lams are creep-fed and sold as milk-fat lambs during spring and early summer. Three separate ...
  • Menzies, C.S.; Banbury, Evans E.; Spaeth, C.W. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-04-28)
    A flock of approximately 450 commercial finewool ewes is maintained at the Colby Branch Experiment Station. Ewes are purchased in early spring in Southwest Texas as yearlings and replaced after producing six lamp crops. ...
  • Menzies, C.S.; Banbury, Evans E. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-04-28)
    One hundred fifty yearling ewes were added to the flock in May, 1963, so the ewe flock now consists of approximately 450 two-, five-, and six- year-old fine-wool ewes. All were purchased in southwestern Texas as yearlings. ...
  • Menzies, C.S.; Hillman, M.; Banbury, Evans E. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-05-06)
    The Colby ewe flock consists of approximately 325 four-and five-year-old fine-wool ewes, that were purchase in southwest Texas as yearlings. Purebred Hampshire ewes are used. The first attempts to determine the effect that ...
  • Call, Edward P. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2012-09-20)
    The rate of involution of the bovine uterus is remarkable. By 20 days after calving, tissue sloughing and hemorrhaging have ceased, and the size of the uterus has been reduced by more than 80%. By 40 days, the uterus has ...
  • Schoneweis, D.A.; Allee, G.L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-05-07)
    The experiment suggests that a primary need of the neonatal pig is iron and that hematinics such as cobalt and liver extract are of little value if iron is insufficient.
  • Schoneweis, D.A.; Allee, G.L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-05-07)
    Giving an iron iron dextran-gentamycin combination to young pigs had no advantages over giving them iron dextran alone, as measured by hemoglobin levels, packed cell volumes, or weight (when 28 days old).
  • Kube, J.C.; Shirley, John E.; Frantz, K.D. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2012-10-04)
    Springing heifers and dry cows were introduced to a computer feeder either 2 wk before their estimated freshening date or at calving. There was no significant difference in milk production, percentage milk fat, percentage ...
  • Trible, B.R.; Rowland, Raymond R. R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2012-02-16)
    Understanding the transmission of porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome virus (PRRSV) is important for developing methods to control and eliminate the virus. In this study, 2 similar experiments were performed ...
  • Eborn, D.R.; Blair, E.E.; Grieger, David M. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2011-03-30)
    The EAZI-BREED CIDR is commonly used in estrous synchronization protocols for both beef heifers and cows. The label calls for insertion of a progesterone-impregnated controlled internal drug release (CIDR) for 7 consecutive ...
  • Schneider, J.D.; Nelssen, Jim L.; Tokach, Michael D.; Goodband, Robert D.; DeRouchey, Joel M.; Dritz, Steven S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2009-11-10)
    A total of 75 lactating sows were used in a study to determine whether the ratio of total sulfur amino acid (TSAA) to lysine calculated from the NRC (1998) is adequate for lactating sows. Low and high sulfur amino acid ...
  • Koch, B.A.; Allee, G.L.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-05-07)
    Increasing the alfalfa meal to 30% in a finishing pig diet did not significantly reduce average daily gain when tallow was also added to maintain the caloric density of the ration. Digestibility of dry matter and gross ...
  • Linneen, S.K.; Tokach, Michael D.; DeRouchey, Joel M.; Goodband, Robert D.; Nelssen, Jim L.; Dritz, Steven S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2009-10-20)
    Two studies were conducted to test the effect of isoleucine amount and source on nursery pig performance. In Exp. 1, a total of 194 pigs were used in a 10-d study in a research facility to test the effects of isoleucine ...
