  • Kimple, K.; McKee, M.; Fink, G.; Conway, K. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1977)
    Performances of 125 commercial Hereford-cross and percentage Simmental calves were evaluated by comparing early weaning at 50 days of age (+25), nursing calves receiving a creep in drylot, and calves nursing in drylot ...
  • Tobyne, D.; Fink, G.; Riley, Jack G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1977)
    We used 72 Hereford and Hereford x Angus cross yearling steers to further evaluate 200 mg Monensin (trade name Rumensin) per head daily. Monensin improved gain 6.7% and significantly improved efficiency, 12.3%.
  • 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, ...
  • Warren, J.H.; Smith, E.F.; Schalles, R.R.; Berger, L.; Fink, G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1975)
    We found no advantage for creep feeding calves for either all summer or 37 days prior to weaning. All calves were with their dams on native pasture. Calves not creep fed or creep fed only 37 days before weaning were sick ...
  • Fink, G.; Riley, Jack G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1975)
    Three trails used 264 steers to evaluate the effects of 36 mg zeranol (Ralgro) and 20 mg estradiol benzoate plus 200 mg progresterone (Synovex-S) implants on performance of steers during one growing and two finishing ...
  • Harrison, K.F.; Fink, G.; Riley, Jack G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1975)
    one growing trial and two finishing trials we used 264 steers. Rations containing 13.2% crude protein during the 105-day growing trial significantly (P<.05) improved rate of gain gain compared with 11.3% crude protein ...
  • 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 ...
  • McKee, M.; Conway, K.L.; Fink, G.; Schalles, R.R.; Bolsen, K.K.; Zoellner, K.O. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1975)
    Thirty-nine Angus, Hereford, and part Simmental bulls were tested 140 days (December 18, 1973 to May 6,1974) for weight gained. Bulls were divided into four groups and fed four different rations that had been formulated ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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. ...
  • Bolsen, K.K.; Armbruster, S.; Caley, H.; 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.
  • Kimple, K.; McKee, M.; Fink, G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1977)
    One hundred-two mature Simmental and Hereford cows in mid to late gestation were used to compare three maintenance rations during an 83-day trial: (1) milo stover silage, (2) large package milo stover (stacks and bales), ...
  • Bolsen, K.K.; Fink, G.; Riley, Jack G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1975)
