    Carcass data and Warner-Bratzler shear force (WBSF) data on strip loin steaks were collected from nearly 8,500 cattle in contemporary groups of progeny from the more popular sires in 14 different beef cattle breeds in ...
  • McKee, M.; Bolsen, K.K.; Conway, K.L.; Fink, G.; Riley, Jack G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1974)
    An 85-day, post weaning growth rate for 30 calves weaned at an average age of 110.5 days was compared with the growth rate of 30 calves nursing their mothers the same period. Average age of the nursing calves at the start ...
  • McKee, M.; Bolsen, K.K.; Schalles, R.R.; Conway, K.L.; Fink, G.; Riley, Jack G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1975)
    Growth rate of 38 calves after being weaned at an average of 91.6 days was compared with growing rate of 37 calves averaging 91.2 days of age and continuing to nurse their mothers the same period. Average daily gains ...
  • McKee, M.; Fink, G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1978)
    Percentage Simmental and Hereford calves gained slightly more (13 lbs./hd) while nursing their mothers than 83 herd mates that were weaned early at 49 (+27) days of age. Percentage Simmental cows whose calves were weaned ...
  • Fleck, A.A.; Schalles, R.R.; Riley, Jack G.; Fink, G.; O' Banion, D.S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1977)
    Adding a medicated top dressing to a weaning calf ration did not reduce calf sickness, but increased weight gains the second and third weeks of a three-week weaning trial.
  • Dean Bark, L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1984)
    The 1983 weather in Kansas upset carefully laid plans and confounded the best management techniques. Yet the averages for 1982 and 1983 appear very similar. In Manhattan, the average temperatures were 54.04 F for 1982 and ...
  • Wright, J.M.; Kiracofe, G.H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1986)
    Ninety-one pregnant, crossbred Angus heifers aborted after receiving an injection of a prostaglandin analog at an average of 50, 75, 100, or 122 days of gestation. Weight change in the first 3 weeks after abortion and ...
  • Schlegel, E.R.; Oleen, Brandon E.; Hollenbeck, W.R.; Montgomery, Sean P.; Vahl, Christopher I.; Blasi, Dale A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2013)
    In many instances, due in part to price per unit of energy and proximity to production, Kansas beef producers have the opportunity to incorporate grain-processing byproducts such as wet distillers grains with solubles ...
  • May, M.L.; Quinn, M.J.; Drouillard, James S.; Walker, Charles E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2007)
    The purpose of this experiment was to determine optimal levels of distiller’s grains in finished diets with steam-flaked corn or dry rolled corn. Distiller’s grains have been used extensively in regions of the country in ...
  • 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)
    Ninety spring-calving Hereford × Angus cows grazing low-quality, tallgrass-prairie forage during the winter were fed 5 lb/day of a supplement containing combinations of wheat bran (high in digestible fiber) and second ...
  • Blaine, K.; Drouillard, James S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010)
    Encapsulated amino acids, vitamins, and other nutrients are gaining popularity in the ruminant feed industry. The purpose of encapsulation is to provide protection from premature digestion in the rumen, making it possible ...
  • Bolsen, K.K.; Conway, K.L.; Riley, Jack G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1974)
    Two trials were conducted to evaluate two varieties of wheat head silage (Parker and Blue Boy) and whole-plant corn silage in growing rations for steers. Each silage was fed to 21 steers for 122 days. All steers ...
  • Dalke, B.S.; Sonon, R.N. Jr.; Holthaus, D.L.; Bolsen, K.K.; Young, Matthew A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1995)
    One hundred twenty medium-framed steers were fed one of six high (90%) concentrate rations: control (0), 5, 10, or 15% pelleted wheat middlings (WM) replacing the concentrate (dry rolled corn) and 5 or 10% pelleted WM ...
  • Dalke, B.S.; Bolsen, K.K.; Sonon, R.N. Jr.; Young, Matthew A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1995)
    Six medium-framed steers, fitted with ruminal cannulae were used in a 6 × 6 Latin square design and fed the following six high concentrat e (90%) rations: control; 5, 10, or 15% pelleted wheat middlings (WM) replacing the ...
  • Kuhl, G.L.; Wessels, R.H.; Blasi, Dale A.; Drouillard, James S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1998)
    A 101-day growing study was conducted to evaluate the growth performance of beef heifers fed wheat middlings in traditional full- fed, sorghum silage-based rations and in limit-fed, high-concentrate rations. Diets were ...
  • Bell, T.D.; Erhart, A.B. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1951)

  • Cox, R.F.; Erhart, A.B. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1950)
