  • Dhuyvetter, Kevin C.; Schroeder, Ted C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2000)
    Several important determinants need to be considered when analyzing price slides (priceweight relationships) for feeder cattle. The two most economically important determinants of price-weight slides are expected ...
  • Marsh, T.L.; Piggott, N.E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2002)
    This study investigates whether food safety incidents involving beef, pork, and poultry, and the accompanying publicity have impacted United States meat demand. Beef demand is modeled as a function of beef prices, ...
  • Farmer, C.G.; Cochran, R.C.; Simms, D.D.; Heldt, J.S.; Mathis, C.P. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1999)
    Sixteen ruminally fistulated steers were used to evaluate the effects of feeding supplements containing combinations of two wheat-milling by-products on forage intake, digestibility, and ruminal characteristics. The ...
  • Laudert, S.; Kuhl, G.; Walker, M. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1984)
    A one hundred and forty day field trial was conducted to evaluate the relative performance of steers implanted with Compudose, Ralgro and Synovex-S. Daily gains of cattle receiving a single initial implant were increased ...
  • Laudert, S.; Corah, L.; Nelson, R.; Sauerwein, C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1985)
    Three field trials were conducted with grazing yearling steers to compare Compudose® and Ralgro® implants. Compudose® and Ralgro® implants. Compudose®-implanted steers gained faster (P<.05) than controls. Ralgro® improved ...
  • Eck, T.P.; Corah, L.R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1993)
    Feedlot performance of steers implanted with Compudose®, Implus-S®, or Synovex-S® was very similar. No statistical differences were detected among treatments. However, implanted steers gained an average of 4% faster ...
  • Laudert, S.B.; Kuhl, G.L.; Edwards, A.J. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1987)
    Heifers that were flank-spayed plus rumen-ovarian autografted (FS+A) responded similarly to Ralgro®, Synovex-H®, and Synovex-S® implants on' pasture. Grazing heifers spayed by the Kimberling-Rupp technique also responded ...
  • Reinhardt, Christopher D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010)
    Selection of dosage, timing, and number of anabolic implants continues to be a source of controversy for feed yard managers and their consultants. Although the dose-dependent effects on performance are fairly well accepted, ...
  • Spire, M.F.; Sargeant, J.M.; Blasi, Dale A.; Drouillard, James S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1999)
    Infrared thermography (IRT) can be used successfully to differentiate abscessed implanted ears from nonimplanted ears 8 days postimplanting. Abscessed ears averaged 5.7EF warmer than nonimplanted ears when ambient ...
