  • Harrison, K.F.; Good, D.L.; Riley, Jack G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1974)
    A 189-day trial used 280 mixed-breed steers to study effects of various protein levels in finishing steer rations. Rations containing 15.4 or 13.4% crude protein significantly improved rate of gain during the first 42 ...
  • Bolsen, K.K.; Conway, K.L.; Henry, P.; Riley, Jack G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1974)
    Six finishing rations were compared: (1) 10% corn silage, (2) 20% corn silage, (3) 10% wheat head silage, (4) 20% wheat head silage, (5) unprocessed (whole) milage and (6) processed (rolled) milage. Each ration was fed ...
  • Heersche, G. Jr.; Kiracofe, G.; McKee, M.; Ames, D.R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1974)
    Thirty of the 50 heifers used in estrous synchronization studies and that received prostaglandin and Syncro-Mate B to synchronize estrus were subjected to sound stress for 48 hours after prostaglandin was injected. Fifty-nine ...
  • Harrison, K.F.; Riley, Jack G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1974)
    A 142-day trial used 36 Angus steers and 63 mixed-breed heifers to study the effects of roughage and protein levels in beef cattle finishing rations. Results from a 13% crude protein ration the first 70 days or a ration ...
  • Berger, L.L.; Schalles, R.R.; Harbers, L.H.; Smith, E.F.; Owensby, Clenton E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1974)
    Burning and fertilizing pastures were evaluated on six Bluestem pastures by comparing performances by spring-calving cows and calves. Two control pastures were not burned or fertilized, two pastures were burned, and two ...
  • Bolsen, K.K.; Berger, L.L.; Riley, Jack G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1974)
    Three alfalfa treatments were evaluated in a steer performance trial: (1) direct-cut and ensiled with dry milo, (2) field-wilted and ensiled, with milo added at feeding and (3) baled, with milo added at feeding. The ...
  • Bolsen, K.K.; Armbruster, S.; Caley, Homer K., 1922-; Fink, G.; Riley, Jack G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1974)
    Inoculating newly arrived feeder calves with 250 ml. rumen fluid did not stimulate weight gain or decrease sickness. One hundred seventy steer calves were used in the 31 day study.
  • Davis, Duane L.; Schalles, R.R.; Kiracofe, G.; Good, D.L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1974)
    Winter nutrition requirements for beef cows grazing native tallgrass range in the Flint Hills were studied from 1968 through 1973. Three lb. milo was a better supplement to the basic ration of 3 lb. alfalfa hay than 1 ...
  • Bolsen, K.K.; Boyett, G.; Riley, Jack G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1974)
    Five rations (involving 4 forage treatments) were compared: (1) forage sorghum silage, (2) forage sorghum silage ensiled with organic acids , (3) milo stover pellets, (4) milo stover silage and (5) milo stover silage ...
  • McKee, M.; Schalles, R.R.; Zoellner, K.O. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1974)
    Three trials with Angus, Hereford, and Shorthorn bulls produced in the University teaching herd were conducted to determine effects of 10, 12, or 14% calculated crude protein levels in grain rations. In trial 1, the 10% ...
  • Shiawoya, E.L.; Harbers, L.H.; Bolsen, K.K.; Riley, Jack G.; Dikeman, Michael E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1974)
    Protein supplements composed of either soybean meal, a combination of soybean meal and urea, or milo Starea improved gain 5% and feed efficiency 4% over supplements of either urea or wheat Starea (P<.25). Cost of gain ...
  • Berger, L.L.; Harbers, L.H.; Schalles, R.R.; Smith, E.F.; Owensby, Clenton E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1974)
    Nine pastures of 492 acres were summer grazed by yearling steers. Five were burned April 24, 1973; four were not burned. Burned and nonburned pastures had 0, 40, or 80 lbs. of nitrogen per acre applied aerially. Stocking ...
  • Harbers, L.H.; Shiawoya, E.L.; Conway, K.; McKee, R.M. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1974)
    Similar gains and adjusted weaning weights can be expected from calves whose dams are wintered on soybean meal or Starea protein blocks. Rebreeding time is expected to be similar for both groups of dams.
  • Heersche, G. Jr.; Kiracofe, G.; McKee, M.; Davis, Duane L.; Brower, G.R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1974)
    Forty-seven of 50 heifers were in estrus 1 to 5 days after an injection of prostaglandin given when an ear implant of Synchro-mate B was removed. The implant had been in place one week. Thirty of the 47 (63.8%) heifers with ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • Vanderlip, R. L.; Schneider, L.R.; Bolsen, K.K. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1974)
    Last year in Kansas approximately 3.8 million acres produced 243 million bushels of grain sorghum plus a large amount of forage left in the field as a potential source of feed for livestock. The objective of this report ...
