  • Anderson, N.V.; King, C.A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1987)
    Germfree piglets rapidly develop pneumonia after Haemophilus pleuropneumoniae is inoculated into the lung, providing a basis of comparison for future studies of pneumonia in SPF and conventionally reared piglets.
  • Perry, H.B.; Larson, G.H.; Lipper, R.I.; Smith, E.F.; Boren, Fred W. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1966)
    Each of two lots was 24’ x 92’, one completely surfaced with concrete; the other, soil except for a 24’ x 16’ concrete feeding floor where the cattle stood to eat from a fence line feeder.
  • Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1982)
    Three feeding trials were conducted to compare soft winter wheat with hard winter wheat for finishing swine. In each trial, soft wheat diets supported weight gains and feed/gain ratio equal to those observed for pigs fed ...
  • Fairbanks, G.E.; Hoover, J.D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1976)
    Two types of big round balers and a small stackmaker were used to harvest grain sorghum stubble after the grain was harvested during the fall and winter months of 1975. The stubble was about 21 inches high and about 4 ...
  • Connor, J.F. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1991)
    As the swine industry matures, profit margins will decrease. Control of the major factors affecting feed cost will drive the system. Upgrading or maintaining health will be a major emphasis, because disease agents and ...
  • Cowman, G.L.; Deyoe, C.W.; Koch, B.A.; Pfost, H.B.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1968)
    This paper is a progress report of a research project initiated this past year designed to study the effects of heat and pressure processing of sorghum grain on the performance of swine. The theoretical reasoning behind ...
  • Obuz, E.; Yancey, E.J.; Lawrence, T.E.; King, D.A.; Dikeman, Michael E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2001)
    We used an electric belt grill, a forced air convection oven, and an electric broiler to cook steaks from three beef muscles; outside round (biceps femoris), loin strip (longissimus lumborum) and eye round (semitendi ...
  • Keay, L.E.; Kiracofe, G.; Odde, Kenneth G.; Stevenson, Jeffrey S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1983)
    One-hundred eighteen heifers were used to determine the effectiveness of Alfaprostol as a heat synchronization agent. Seventy-nine were injected twice (12 days apart) with 6 mg Alfaprostol per head and 39 were not treated. ...
  • Schroeder, Ted C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1988)
    This study examined the frequency of profitable, short, hedging opportunities that have been available to feeder pig finishers in recent years. The results indicate that there have been periods offering frequent opportunities ...
  • Bradford, Heather L.; Moser, Daniel W.; Bormann, Jennifer M.; Weaber, Robert L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2014)
    Reproductive failure is consistently a top reason for culling beef cows from the herd. Culling young females is very costly to commercial producers because a young female hasn’t generated enough income to pay for the ...
  • Dunham, J. R. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1991)
    Heifer feeding and management programs have a great impact on the efficiency of the future dairy herd. Dairies that feed and manage heifers for calving at about 24 mo of age are optimizing milk production, feed cost ...
  • Eborn, D.R.; Spiker, C.R.; Sullivan, R.R.; Grieger, David M. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2009)
    Two aims of heifer estrus synchronization protocols are to induce prepubertal heifers to start cycling by the beginning of the breeding season and to shorten time spent in estrous detection. Use of progestins such as ...
  • Minick Bormann, J.; Moser, Daniel W.; Marston, T.T. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2008)
    Feed is one of the largest costs in a cow/calf or feedlot operation. However, very little data is available to aid producers in genetically improving their herd for feed efficiency. In Australia, bull tests record individual ...
  • Glaze, J.B.; Schalles, R.R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1994)
    Performance data from a Polled Hereford herd selected for feed conversion were used in the calculation of heritabilities and genetic correlations for birth weight (BWT), weaning weight (WWT), and yearling weight ...
  • Glaze, J.B.; Schalles, R.R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1994)
    Performance data from a Polled Hereford herd selected for feed conversion were used in the calculation of heritabilities and genetic correlations for birth weight (BWT), weaning weight (WWT), and yearling weight ...
  • Johnson, M.Z.; Schalles, R.R.; Olson, W.; Dikeman, Michael E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1992)
    Heritabilities and genetic correlations for ultrasound-measured ribeye area and fat thickness, as well as growth traits and scrotal circumference, were determined using performance records of 1613 Brangus calves ...
  • Menzies, C.S.; Ahlschwede, G.; Wheat, J.D.; Mackintosh, D.L.; Kropf, Donald H. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1965)
    Data was collected on 91 lambs of known breeding born during the fall, 1963. The lambs were from ewes in the original fine-wool flock and were sired by 10 performance-tested Hampshire rams. This was the ewes fifth lamb crop.
  • Menzies, C.S.; Wheat, J.D.; Mackintosh, D.L.; Kropf, Donald H. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1964)
    Data were collected on 94 lambs of known breeding born the fall of 1962. The lams were from ewes in the original fine-wool flock sired by eight unrelated Suffolk yearling rams. This was the ewes fourth lam crop.
  • Hillman, M.; Menzies, C.S.; Wheat, J.D.; Mackintosh, D.L.; Merkel, R.A. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1962)
    This is a continuous project to the North-Central-50 Regional Sheep Breeding Project. The Kansas State Project was initiated to determine relationships between various carcass measurements and live animal traits, to estimate ...
  • Menzies, C.; Hillman, M.; Wheat, J.D.; Mackintosh, D.L.; Merkel, R.A. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1961)
    This is a contributing project to the North Central-50 Regional Sheep Breeding Project. The Kansas State project was initiated in the spring of 1959 to determine relationships between various carcass measurements and live ...
