  • Bolsen, K.; Grimes, C.; Mickelson, R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1976)
    Three milo treatments were evaluated in finishing rations for heifers: dry-rolled, reconstituted with water, and reconstituted with whey. Reconstituting milo with water or whey did not increase weight gain or efficiency ...
  • Bolsen, K.; Riley, Jack G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1976)
    Eight rations were fed to 15 yearling steers (3 pens of 5 steers each). Arthur wheat, Paoli barley and corn silages were supplemented with either soybean meal or urea; Blue Boy II and Eagle wheat silages were supplemented ...
  • DeBenedetti, R.C.; Kiracofe, G.H.; Hultine, V.; McKee, R.M.; Schalles, R.R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1976)
    Forty-five of 50 heifers were in estrus 1 to 5 days after 7-day synchronization implants were removed. Prostaglandin was injected one day before implants were removed. Thirty-one of the 45 (68.9%) heifers conceived to first ...
  • Heekin, M.; Kiracofe, G.H.; Hultine, V.; Schalles, R.R.; McKee, R.M. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1976)
    We used 79 cows to evaluate Syncromate B (G.D. Searle, Co.) as an estrus-synchronizing agent. Management of five groups of cows was: (1) nonsynchronized, bred naturally; (2) nonsynchronized, bred artificially; (3) synchronized, ...
  • Bolsen, K.; Riley, Jack G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1976)
    One hundred five yearling steers were used to evaluate seven milo treatments: (1) dry, (2) micronized, (3) steam flaked +.2% propionic acid (acid-flake), (4) field harvested high moisture (F-HM) ensiled whole in an 02 ...
  • Harbers, L.H.; Schalles, R.R.; Smith, E.F.; Owensby, Clenton E.; Boggs, Don (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1976)
    Nine pastures totaling 492 acres were summer grazed by yearling Hereford, Hereford-Angus cross, and Angus steers distributed equally by breed. Five pastures were burned April 22, 1975; four were not burned. Burned and ...
  • Smith, E.F.; Riley, Jack G.; Boggs, Don (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1976)
    One hundred seventy-five Hereford, Hereford-Angus cross and Angus steers, averaging 553 lbs., were distributed as equally as possible by breed among four pastures. The pasture season was May 2 to October 5, 1975 (152 ...
  • Lipsey, R.J.; Allen, Dell M.; Dikeman, Michael E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1976)
    Retail cut-out and U.S.D.A. yield grade data were obtained on 1,121 carcasses of steers from Hereford and Angus dams mated artificially to Hereford, Angus, Jersey, Limousin, South Devon, Simmental and Charolais bulls. ...
  • Bolsen, K.; Corah, L.; Grimes, C.; Riley, Jack G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1976)
    Ninety-six heifer calves were used to compare four silage combinations: (1) 100% milo stover, (2) 67% milo stover and 33% forage sorghum, (3) 33% milo stover and 67% forage sorghum and (4) 100% forage sorghum. Each ...
  • Bolsen, K.; Riley, Jack G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1976)
    Twenty-four individually fed heifers were used to evaluate four combinations of micronized or dry-rolled milo and soybean meal or urea supplements in prairie hay growing rations. Feeding 5 lbs. of micronized milo produced ...
  • Hunt, Melvin C.; Kropf, Donald H.; Chen, V.; Harrison, A.; Corte, O.; Kuntapanit, C.; Smith, M.E.; Thomas, J.; Kastner, Curtis L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1976)
    Ten steers of known background, approximately 18 months old, and wintered on alfalfa and protein were finished on a brome and bluestem grazing program. Carcass characteristics were measured. The influence of conditioning ...
  • Warren, J.H.; Blum, J.; Schalles, R.R.; Kiracofe, G.; Henry, K.; Hultine, V. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1976)
    Severa1 reproductive traits of yearling Polled Hereford bulls were evaluated during and immediately after a 140-day feeding test. Results indicate that concentration of sperm and percentages of live sperm are heritable ...
  • DeBenedetti, R.; Kiracofe, G.H.; Hultine, V.; McKee, R.M.; Schalles, R.R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1976)
    Twenty-six Polled Hereford and Simmental-cross heifers that had not cycled by the beginning of the breeding season were given an ear implant and injected with an estrogen-progestogen compound. The implant was removed after ...
  • Fairbanks, G.E.; Hoover, J.D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1976)
    Two types of big round balers and a small stackmaker were used to harvest grain sorghum stubble after the grain was harvested during the fall and winter months of 1975. The stubble was about 21 inches high and about 4 ...
  • Bolsen, K.; Berger, L.L.; Moore, W. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1976)
    Our objectives were to determine the effects of variety and stage of plant growth at harvest on forage and grain yields of wheat and barley. Plots were grown at the Animal Science and Industry Farm near Manhattan in ...
  • Schalles, R.R.; Kiracofe, G.; Smith, E.F. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1976)

  • Ames, D.R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1976)
    Feedlot data on 202 lots involving approximately 40,000 steers collected for five years were used to characterize feedlot performance each month of the year. Intake, average daily gain (ADG), and feed efficiency were ...
  • Gugle, Terry L.; Fink, G.; Riley, Jack G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1976)
    Fifty-four yearling Hereford steers averaging 805 pounds were used in an 86-day finishing trial to determine the effect of adding low levels of propionic acid to steam flaked sorghum grain. Three treatments were examined. ...
