  • Call, Edward P. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1985)
    Profit or loss in the dairy enterprise is dependent upon yearly production per cow and degree of capitalization. Higher producing cows convert feed into milk more efficiently. Cows of similar body size have similar ...
  • Strahm, T.; Harner, Joseph P.; Murphy, James P.; McCormack, G.; Smith, J.F.; Key, David V. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2001)
    Sixty four percent of the fields (14 of 22) in northeast and south central Kansas would be able to apply dairy manure on a nitrogen basis if the current swine manure application regulations were adopted. Due to high ...
  • Cvetkovic, B.; Shirley, John E.; Brouk, Michael J. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2004)
    Twenty-four lactating Holstein cows were used to determine the production response to the inclusion of brown seaweed in the basal diet during summer heat stress. Cows were blocked by lactation number, days in milk, and ...
  • Smith, John F.; Bradford, Barry J.; Harner, Joseph P. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2009)
    A trial was conducted to determine the impact of evaporative cooling pads on core body temperature (CBT), time spent lying, and number of lying bouts of Holstein cows housed in cross-ventilated freestall facilities. ...
  • Smith, J.F.; Armstrong, D.V.; VanBaale, M. J.; Bray, D.R.; Harner, Joseph P.; Brouk, Michael J. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2005)
    Heat stress in hot and humid environments reduces milk production, decreases reproduction, and increases health-related problems. The summertime environment in north-central Florida is especially difficult because the ...
  • Mathis, C.P.; Cochran, R.C.; Woods, B.C.; Heldt, J.S.; Olson, K. C.; Grieger, David M. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1998)
    One hundred and twenty spring-calving Hereford × Angus cows grazing low-quality, tallgrass-prairie forage were fed 1.0, 1.5, 2.0, 2.5, 3.0, 4.0, 5.0, or 6.0 lb soybean meal (SBM) per head daily. SBM as a source of ...
  • Dingwell, R.T.; Leslie, K.E.; Sargeant, J.M.; Schukken, Y.H.; Timms, L.L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2001)
    A study of 250 cows located in Canada and the United States revealed the rate of new mammary infections was 9.9% during the dry period. Average milk production on the day prior to dry-off was 13.2 ± 7.2 kg. The odds ...
  • Mintert, J.; Dritz, Steven S.; Schroeder, Ted C.; Hedges, S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1996)
    Hog producers can control the quality of the hogs they market. Through genetic selection and management, producers can have a large impact on hog carcass characteristics such as weight, backfat depth, and loin depth. ...
