  • Spire, M.F.; Galland, J.C.; Drouillard, James S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1998)
    Thermal imaging of feedlot cattle ears is a noninvasive diagnostic tool that aids in identifying properly placed or abscessed growth-promoting implants. Thirty-two calves were used to determine if abscessed and normal, ...
  • Kimple, K.; McKee, M.; Fink, G.; Conway, K. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1977)
    Performances of 125 commercial Hereford-cross and percentage Simmental calves were evaluated by comparing early weaning at 50 days of age (+25), nursing calves receiving a creep in drylot, and calves nursing in drylot ...
  • Shivas, S.D.; Kastner, Curtis L.; Dikeman, Michael E.; Hunt, Melvin C.; Kropf, Donald H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1983)
    We found steaks cut from inside rounds (chilled fast or slow) of electrically stimulated and hot boned bull carcasses, to be similar to conventionally processed steaks in taste panel, shear force and cooking loss characteristics.
  • Lynch, J.M.; Houghton, P.L.; Corah, L.R.; Stokka, G.L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1997)
    In October, 1995, 3,565 head of freshly weaned, British-breed calves were received into a weaning facility in southwest Nebraska. Calves were determined to be preconditioned if they had received both viral an d ...
  • Dhuyvetter, Kevin C.; Jones, R.; Turner, T.; Marsh, T. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2005)
    The two primary objectives of this study were to re-examine the economic values of production expected progeny differences (EPD) and how they relate to the values assigned to actual weights, and to assess the impact ...
  • Huck, G.L.; Turner, J.E.; Siefers, M.K.; Brent, B.E.; Bolsen, K.K.; Young, Matthew A.; Pope, Ronald V. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1997)
    Determining the value of silage saved by effectively sealing a horizontal silo requires only a few simple calculations, but it is still a concept that is often overlooked by many livestock producers who store large ...
  • Porter, R.W.; Jones, R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2005)
    The results of this study indicate that farmer-feeders who finish as few as 700 head per year can compete with the large commercial feedlots from a cost perspective. The lack of a sophisticated feed mill does not prevent ...
  • Stryker, L.; Langemeier, Michael R.; Jones, R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2002)
    Cow-calf producers must learn to control those aspects of production that are under their management. Quantity of beef produced and the cost of maintaining the breeding herd from conception to weaning are two examples ...
  • Langemeier, Michael R.; Schroeder, Ted C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1994)
    Economies of size measure the impact of increasing the size of operation on average cost of production. Economies o f size exist if average total cost decreases as size increases. Enterprise data from producers enrolled ...
  • Bolsen, K.K.; Lin, C.; Brent, B.E.; Bradford, J.E.; Feyerherm, A.M. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1992)
    The effect of 1174® Silage Inoculant on the ensiling process was studied using three Pioneer corn hybrids. All hybrids fermented rapidly, and 1174 did not significantly influence any of the fermentation characteristics during ...
  • Simms, D.D.; Odde, Kenneth G.; Corah, L.R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1982)
    In three field trials, we removed calves from 187 beef cows for 48 hours at the beginning of the breeding season to determine the effect on the cows' cycling activity, conception rate, and pregnancy rate. When calves ...
  • Stokka, G.L.; Brandt, Robert T., Jr.; Kreikemeier, K.K.; Milton, T. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1995)
    When studied in receiving trials at three locations, health or performance of calves receiving a core antigen vaccine was not improved.
  • Bolsen, K.K.; Bonilla, D.R.; Huck, G.L.; Hart-Thakur, R.A.; Young, Matthew A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1996)
    The effects of a strain of Propionibacterium shermanii, applied with and without lactic acid bacteria (LAB), on the fermentation and aerobic stability of whole-plant corn silage was determined using laboratory-scale ...
  • Bolze, R.P.; Corah, L.R.; Pruitt, R.J. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1984)
    Three hundred and seventy four heifers from two Kansas ranches were used to determine if a single Ralgro implant given either at two months of age or at weaning would influence pelvic development and subsequent calving ...
  • Lomas, Lyle W. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1984)
    Feeding actaplanin in a loose mineral mix or twice weekly in a supplement significantly improve gains of grazing steers. The greatest improvement in performance was found with average daily actaplanin intakes of 255 or 257 ...
  • Drake, C.L.; Smith, E.F.; Richardson, D.; Tsien, W.S. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1963)
    This experiment was designed to evaluate the desirability of supplementing bluestem pasture as indicated in the title. Forty Hereford steer calves were divided into four lots of 10 each and fed the following rations per ...
  • Drake, C.L.; Smith, E.F.; Tsien, W.S.; Follis, D.L. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1962)
    This experiment was designed to evaluate the desirability of supplementing bluestem pasture as indicated in the title. Forty Hereford steer calves were divided into four lots of 10 each and fed the following experimental ...
  • Llewellyn, Donald A.; Marston, T.T.; Breiner, Ryan M. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2005)
    Two hundred forty-six commercial Angusbased cows were used to determine the effect of adding Aureomycin® for anaplasmosis control or Rumensin® to mineral supplements on summer beef cowherd performance. Cow/calf pairs ...
  • Brent, B.E.; Phar, P.A.; Randle, L.J.; Harbers, L.H.; Allen, Dell M. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1971)
    Fat is added to commercial feedlot rations as a concentrated energy source and to reduce dustiness and wear of feed processing machinery. We added fat at varying levels ( 0 to 6% of the ration) to study effects from fat ...
  • Laaser, G.N.; Kiracofe, G.H.; Heekin, M.D.; Ward, H.S.; Odde, Kenneth G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1978)
    Twelve cows were given a preliminary treatment of testosterone proprionate and were used to help us detect other cows in heat. We used two types of testosterone booster treatments to maintain male sex behavior in both age ...
