    A total of 216 yearling steers was used in two finishing experiments to evaluate interactions between levels of dietary fat, protein and ruminally protected choline. In Trial 1, steers received diets that combined ...
  • Greenwood, R.H.; Titgemeyer, Evan C.; Drouillard, James S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1998)
    Blocks based on cooked beet molasses, cane molasses, or concentrated separator by-product, CSB) were tested to compare their effects on intake and digestion of prairie hay by beef steers. All blocks contained at least ...
  • Brazle, F.K.; Laudert, S.B. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1998)
    Four hundred sixty-nine English and Continental cross yearling steers grazed on native grass pastures over a 2-year period. Rumensin® was added (1,620 g/ton) to the mineral mixture in half of the pastures. Some of the ...
  • Mathis, C.P.; Cochran, R.C.; Heldt, J.S.; Woods, B.C.; Stokka, Gerald L.; Olson, K. C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1998)
    Twenty ruminally fistulated beef steers free-choice access to prairie hay were used to evaluate the effect of increasing level of soybean meal (SBM) on forage intake and digestion. Forage intake, total organic matter ...
  • Wistuba, T.J.; Siefers, M.K.; Turner, J.E.; Huck, G.L.; Bolsen, K.K.; Young, Matthew A.; Pope, Ronald V. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1998)
    Sixty crossbred heifers and 12 crossbred steers were used to evaluate the effects of mechanically processing (crushing the kernels of) whole-plant corn silage on feedlot performance and nutrient digestibility. The three ...
  • Kuhl, G.L.; Blasi, Dale A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1998)
    A 151-day field study was conducted to compare three anabolic implants for promoting weight gain in stocker heifers grazing center pivot-irrigated pastures of winter rye. Three hundred previously nonimplanted heifers ...
  • Bindel, D.J.; Wessels, R.H.; Loest, C.A.; Drouillard, James S.; Titgemeyer, Evan C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1998)
    A 120-day finishing study utilizing 318 heifers (753 lb initial body weight) examined the effects of ruminally protected choline in diets with no tallow or 2 or 4% of supplemental tallow. Heifers were fed a finishing ...
  • Mathis, C.P.; Cochran, R.C.; Heldt, J.S.; Woods, B.C.; Stokka, Gerald L.; Olson, K. C.; Titgemeyer, Evan C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1998)
    A study with 16 ruminally fistulated beef steers fed Bermuda hay ad libitum showed that the intake and digestibility of hay was not influenced by increasing levels of supplemental degradable intake protein (DIP). ...
  • Mathis, C.P.; Cochran, R.C.; Heldt, J.S.; Woods, B.C.; Stokka, Gerald L.; Olson, K. C.; Titgemeyer, Evan C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1998)
    The effects of increasing levels of degradable intake and digestion of low-quality brome hay were evaluated using 16 ruminally fistulated beef steers. Trends were evident for small, positive changes in total intake and ...
  • Heldt, J.S.; Cochran, R.C.; Mathis, C.P.; Titgemeyer, Evan C.; Nagaraja, T. G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1998)
