  • 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 ...
  • Kreikemeier, K.K.; Harmon, D.L.; Gross, K.; Armendariz, C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1989)
    Pancreatic alpha-amylase activity was 54% higher in cattle fed at twice maintenance energy than in cattle fed at maintenance and was 52% greater in hay-fed than grain-fed cattle. Increased pancreatic alpha-amylase activity ...
  • Koch, B.A.; Parrish, D.B. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1964)
    Nitrates are known to harm animals when ingested under certain conditions. Previous work here indicated that a higher level of dietary nitrate might interfere with carotene conversion to Vitamin A. This trial attempted to ...
  • Uwituze, S.; Hollis, Larry C.; Drouillard, James S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2011)
    We previously reported that elevated concentrations of dietary sulfur (0.65% sulfur, dry basis) in finishing diets containing dried distillers grains with solubles decreased dry matter intake and average daily gains of ...
  • McCartor, M.M.; Koch, B.A.; Smith, E.F.; Richardson, D.; Cox, R.F. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1962)
    Hereford steers used in this study were fed in outdoor dirt lots without shelter. Each steer in lot 23, described in a trace-mineral study reported elsewhere in this publication, received a 24-mg. implant of diethylstilbestrol ...
  • Eidson, S.; Langemeier, Michael R.; Jones, R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1998)
    Beef cow producers must manage costs of production and improve production efficiency to compete with hog and poultry and other beef cattle producers. A sample of 46 beef cow enterprises from the Kansas Farm Management ...
  • Wankel, L.E.; Marston, T.T.; Stokka, G.L.; Rozell, Timothy G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2000)
    Immunoglobulin G1 (IgG1) serum concentrations are used to evaluate passive transfer of immunity in neonatal calves. Total serum proteins also can be measured to evaluate calf health. If IgG1 and total serum protein ...
  • Smith, E.F.; Anderson, K.L.; Drake, C.L.; Boren, Fred W. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1964)
    This experiment was designed to determine the effect of different stocking rates, of deferred grazing, and of pasture burning on cattle performances, productivity of pastures and range condition as determined by plant ...
  • Smith, E.F.; Anderson, K.L.; DeGeer, C.V. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1966)
    This experiment was to determine the effect of different stocking rates, of deferred grazing, and of pasture burning on cattle performance, productivity of pastures, and range condition as determined by plant population ...
  • Smith, E.F.; Anderson, K.L.; Owensby, Clenton E.; Hall, M.C. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1967)
    Studied are the effects of different stocking rates, deferred grazing, and pasture burning on cattle performance, productivity of pastures, and range condition as determined by plant population changes. Included here are ...
