    Crossbred beef heifers (avg wt 653 lb) were used in a feeding experiment to determine the relative feed value of dried paunch content, two separate vegetable processing by-products, and combinations of by-products with ...
  • Pruitt, J.; Schalles, R.R.; Harbers, L.H.; Owensby, Clenton E.; Smith, E.F. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1979)
    Polled Hereford cows on native Flint Hills pasture not supplemented until February lost more weight from December to February, lost less from February to May, and were in poorer condition before calving than cows supplemented ...
  • Munson, R.D.; Thomson, Daniel U.; Reinhardt, Christopher D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2012)
    Bovine respiratory disease is the most common and costly disease in the beef industry. Calves affected by bovine respiratory disease have a 53-lb decrease in finished weights and decreased quality grades compared with ...
  • Schroeder, Ted C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1997)
    Determining the extent of geographic markets for fed cattle is important for monitoring performance of the industry. The ability of packing plants to influence prices is determined in part by their ability to segment the ...
  • Breiner, S.J.; Grau, S.A.; Barnhardt, B.B.; Bryant, A.M.; Boone, Kris; Blasi, Dale A.; Schroeder, Ted C.; Breiner, Ryan M. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2007)
    The proposed U.S. National Animal Identification System has generated concerns among producers relative to implementation of the system. Many of these concerns stem from the USDA’s Bovine Identification Working Group’s ...
  • Whipple, G.; Axe, J.B.; Goll, S.; Kastner, Curtis L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1987)
    An enzyme digestion technique was developed using a proteolytic enzyme concentrate to quantitate connective tissue particles in ground beef samples, which had been formulated to contain various amounts of connective ...
  • Parcell, J.L.; Hiner, F.D.; Schroeder, Ted C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1995)
    A study of price determinants for cow-calf pairs was undertaken at a local Kansas auction company during 1993. Cow breed, age, health, condition score, horns, frame size, and whether the cow h ad been bred back impacted ...
  • Simms, D.D.; Bolze, R.P. Jr.; Geske, J.; Dhuyvetter, Kevin C.; Schroeder, Ted C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1997)
    Animal characteristics and sale price data for 1651 bulls sold at 26 Kansas purebred beef sales during 1993 were collected and analyzed to determine which factors affected price differentials for beef bulls. Bull sale ...
  • May, M.L.; Quinn, M.J.; Depenbusch, Brandon E.; Drouillard, James S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2008)
    Escalating costs of natural gas and electrical utilities have greatly increased the cost of flaking grain for feedlots. Energy demand for flaking is inversely related to bulk density of flaked grain; the lighter, more ...
  • Farmer, C.G.; Cochran, R.C.; Wickersham, T.A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2002)
    One hundred sixty spring-calving Hereford × Angus cows grazing low-quality, tallgrass-prairie range during the winter of 2000-2001 were supplemented before calving either daily or three times weekly. The supplement ...
  • Schoenholz, C.K.; Drouillard, James S.; Armendariz, C.K.; Titgemeyer, Evan C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1998)
    A series of in vitro experiments was conducted to determine the ruminal availability of protein from grains. Procedures were based on assumptions that 1) ruminal availability of protein is first-limiting to microbial growth, ...
  • Larson, B.L.; Kiracofe, G.H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1990)
    The wide variance in anatomical characteristics among heifers born co-twin to a bull make diagnosis of freemartinism by measurements of vaginal length or the distance between the anus and vulva unreliable. Change in serum ...
  • Smith, E.F.; Richardson, D.; DeGeer, C.V.; Boren, Fred W. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1965)
    The 42 heifer calves, 10 or 11 per treatment, used in this experiment were good to choice Herefords from near Fort Davis, Texas, assigned on a random-weight basis to treatments. They were pastured together in a 150-acre ...
  • Theurer, L.J.; Smith, E.F.; Richardson, D.; Boren, Fred W. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1964)
    The 40 heifer calves,10 per lot, used in this experiment were good-to-choice Herefords from near Fort Davis, Texas, assigned on a random weight basis to their treatments. They were pastured together in a 190-acre bluestem ...
  • Smith, E.F.; Richardson, D.; DeGeer, C.V.; Boren, Fred W. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1964)
    The 40 steer calves, 10 per lot, used in this experiment were good-to-choice Herefords from near Fort Davis, Texas, assigned on a random-weight basis to their treatments. They were pastured together in a 190-acre bluestem ...
  • Bock, B.; Brandt, Robert T., Jr.; Harmon, D.L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1989)
    Feeding fat increased feed intake and average daily gain, but feed efficiency was not affected. Feeding high levels of calcium (.9%) had no overall effect, but may tend to increase intake when fed with diets that contain ...
