  • Menzies, C.S. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-04-28)
    Animal fats often are added in small amounts (1-2%) to mixed commercial feeds primarily to reduce dustiness and to lubricate machinery. High-energy poultry rations often contain higher levels of animal fat. This test was ...
  • Kropf, Donald H.; Mackintosh, D.L.; Hinnergardt, L.C.; Menzies, C.S.; Harrison, D.L.; Anderson, L. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-04-28)
    Lambs sired by Hampshire rams and from western ewes were individually slaughtered as they reached 96 lbs. live weight. Quality and quantity factors were evaluated after carcasses were chilled 48 hours. Carcasses were ...
  • Menzies, C.S.; Richardson, D.; Deyoe, C.W.; Pfost, H.B. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-04-28)
    Research indicates that treating grains with heat may improve feedlot performance of ruminant animals. Previous work here indicated that treating all grain or roughage with heat resulted in reduced palatability. This test ...
  • Cox, R.F.; Erhart, A.B. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2012-01-25)
    Experiments in the use of bicarbonate of soda for the control of death losses in the feedlot were begun last year. Two small scale tests indicated that it was highly beneficial. In this years experiments, four lots of ...
  • Menzies, C.M.; Banbury, Evans E.; Elliott, H. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-04-28)
    The ewe flock is handled in an early lambing program with the breeding season beginning around June 1 and ending September 1. All lambs are sold as milkfat lams during the spring and early summer. Two separate tests were ...
  • Menzies, C.S.; Banbury, Evans E.; Spaeth, C.W. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-04-28)
    A flock of approximately 450 commercial finewool ewes is maintained at the Colby Branch Experiment Station. Ewes are purchased in early spring in Southwest Texas as yearlings and replaced after producing six lamp crops. ...
  • Menzies, C.S.; Erhart, A.B. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-04-28)
    Lambs used were finewool wethers purchased from Phelps White, Roswell, New Mexico. Average purchase weight of 648 head was 75.8 lbs.; cost was $23.50 per cwt. Lambs were trucked to Garden City, arriving October. They sheared ...
  • Menzies, C.S.; Erhart, A.B. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-04-28)
    Lambs used were finewool wethers purchased from the Zuni Indian Reservation near Gallup, New Mexico. Average purchase weight of 699 head was 63.8 lbs.; cost was $23.50 per cwt. plus 15 cents per head commission. Lambs were ...
  • Menzies, C.S.; Erhart, A.B. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-04-28)
    Delivery of 601 finewool. Wether feeder lambs was accepted at Menard, Texas, October 8, 1964. Average weight was 68.9 pounds; cost, $19.25 per cwt. Lambs were shorn (average fleece weight, 3.2 lbs.) and shipped 543 miles ...
  • Hix, E.L.; Bell, T.D.; Good, A.L.; Parrish, D.B. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2012-01-25)
    Many of the feed lambs coming into Kansas have not had access to salt for several weeks and some of the lamb feeders do not add salt to their lambs fattening rations because of the possible losses in getting the lambs again ...
  • Kropf, Donald H.; Mackintosh, D.L.; Menzies, C.S.; Harrison, D.; Anderson, L. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-04-28)
    This study was to determine quality factors most closely related to carcass grade, marbling in the rib eye muscle, and to tenderness. A total of 376 crossbred lambs were slaughtered over 4 years at an approximate live ...
  • Bell, T.D.; Cox, R.F.; Hughes, J.S. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2012-01-25)
    Lamb fattening rations varying in physical nature buy virtually alike chemically have been studied at the Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station for a number of years. Previous tests have demonstrated that the rate of gains ...
  • Cox, R.F.; Mackintosh, D.L.; Smith, E.F.; Hughes, J.S. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2012-01-25)
    Many tests have been completed at this station bearing on some phase of physical balance in sheep rations. Differences in gains consistently have favored a medium proportion of concentrates to roughage over either more ...
  • Cox, R.F.; Sloan, L.H. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2012-02-16)
    A number of years of lamb feeding experimental work involving grain comparisons, roughage comparisons, roughage comparisons and proportions of concentrates to roughage, conducted at the Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station ...
  • Menzies, C.S. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-04-28)
    In a previous test (Livestock Feeder’s Day Bulletin 473) adding 10% animal fat to a ration containing 45% alfalfa hay did not affect rate of gain but materially improved feed efficiency and lowered cost per unit gain. This ...
  • Bell, T.D.; Erhart, A.B. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2012-01-19)
    This year’s experiments included first, a series of wheat pasture tests, and later, various feedlot fattening tests. In the five lots of lambs on wheat pasture the effect of withholding salt, the value of additional roughage, ...
