  • Ames, D.R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1976)
    Two winter trials have indicated that protein can be removed from growing rations during cold weather without lowering average daily gain. Cattle consumed 0.29 and 0.33 lb/hd/da (0.11 and 0.15 kg/hd/da) less protein supplement ...
  • Schalles, R.R.; Harbers, L.H.; Smith, E.F.; Owensby, Clenton E.; Boggs, Don (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1976)
    Burning and fertilizing Bluestem pastures were evaluated by comparing performances of spring-calving cows and calves that grazed them. Two control-pastures were not burned or fertilized; two pastures were burned; and two ...
  • Fink, G.; Riley, Jack G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1976)
    Two hundred ten Hereford x Angus crossbred yearling steers were used in two trials to determine effects of Monensin (trade name Rumensin) on performance and carcass characteristics. Top dressing a protein supplement (crumbles ...
  • Bolsen, K.; Corah, L.; Fink, G.; Riley, Jack G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1976)
    We used 136 Hereford heifer calves in two studies to determine the effect on performance of 200 mg monensin (trade name Rumensin) per head daily. It significantly improved gain by 7.5% and 4.6% in trials 1 and 2 respectively, ...
  • Corah, L.; Kimple, K.; McKee, M.; Riley, Jack G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1976)
    Both steer and heifer calves gain significantly (P<.05) faster on summer pasture with growth-promoting implants than calves not implanted. Ralgro, Synovex-S, and Synovex-H were tested, with no significant advantage for ...
  • Hall, M.H.; Smith, W.H.; Schalles, R.R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1976)
    Two inbred lines of Shorthorn beef cattle were established during 1950 to evaluate inbreeding. Analyses of postweaning production data for the first four generations of inbreeding indicate that inbreeding in calves ...
  • Fink, G.; Riley, Jack G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1976)
    Ninety Angus crossbred steers originating from northwestern Nebraska and averageing 440 lb. were used to evaluate the efficacy of Trolene 40 insecticidal premix to control cattle grubs in feedlot cattle. Thirty steers were ...
  • McKee, M.; Conway, K.L.; Fink, G.; Schalles, R.R.; Bolsen, K.K.; Zoellner, K.O. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1976)
    Eight Hereford, 16 Angus, and 36 part Simmental bulls were tested for 140 days (October 15, 1974 to March 4, 1975) for weight gained. Bulls were divided into four groups and fed four rations that had been formulated for ...
  • Bolsen, K.; Dikeman, Michael E.; Riley, Jack G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1976)
    Four combinations of low (LE), moderate (ME) and high (HE) energy rations were fed to growing and finishing steers. The four treatments were: LE-ME; LE-HE; ME-ME and ME-HE. All steers were more efficient during the growing ...
  • Campion, D.R.; Crouse, J.D.; Dikeman, Michael E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1976)
    Carcasses from 1,117 steers from Hereford and Angus dams mated artificially to Hereford, Angus, Charolais, Jersey, South Devon, Simmental and Limousin sires were studied. The study was to evaluate the UDSA 1965 quality ...
  • McKee, M.; Conway, K.L.; Fink, G.; Kimple, K.; Hoover, J.D.; Riley, Jack G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1976)
    Preliminary trials the summer of 1975 tested the value of excreta silage for maintain pregnant cows and heifers. Ingredients in the excreta silage were wheat straw, cattle excreta, corn, and molasses. Eighty mature cows ...
  • Blum, J.K.; Schalles, R.R.; Zoellner, K.O. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1976)
    Steers entering feedlots with higher starting weight per day of age had greater net value a t slaughter than lighter steers. Faster gaining steers brought the highest net income. Age on feed did not influence net income. ...
  • 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. ...
  • 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 ...
  • Schalles, R.R.; Kiracofe, G.; Smith, E.F. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1976)
    Starting to flush cows 95 days before the breeding season began significantly increase conception rate and required less total feed.
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • Warren, J.H.; Blum, J.; Schalles, R.R.; Kiracofe, G.; Henry, K.; Hultine, V. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1976)
