    Total legume density was significantly higher in annually burned prairie (8.0 stems/m2) than in unburned prairie (3.0 stems/ m2). Densities of six species were higher (P<.05) in burned than in unburned prairie, whereas ...
  • Bolsen, K.K.; Bonilla, D.R.; Hart-Thakur, R.A.; Young, Matthew A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1996)
    The efficacy of 13 commercial bacterial silage inoculants was evaluated on 3rd and 4th cutting alfalfa. All inoculants supplied at least 100,000 colony-forming units (cfu) of lactic acid bacteria (LAB) per gram of ...
  • Wessels, R.H.; Titgemeyer, Evan C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1996)
    To test the efficacy of rumen-protected lysine and methionine, six steers (486 lb) were used in a 6 4 incomplete Latin square design and fed corn-urea diets (85% concentrate) alone or supplemented with 2 or 4% soybean ...
  • Dalke, B.S.; Sonon, R.N. Jr.; Holthaus, D.L.; Bolsen, K.K.; Young, Matthew A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1996)
    This experiment was conducted to determine the effect of grain content on the nutritive value of whole-plant grain sorghum silage. Silage dry matter (DM), organic matter (OM), and crude protein (CP) contents increased ...
  • Brandt, Robert T., Jr.; Milton, C.T.; Campbell, N.; Titgemeyer, Evan C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1996)
    Payout characteristics of Revalor-H and Finaplix-H were measured in 30 heifers (678 pounds) assigned to one of six treatments: 1) negative control, 2) melengestrol acetate (MGA) (.5 mg/hd/d), 3) Finaplix-Hfi, 4) Finaplix-H ...
  • Brazle, F.K. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1996)
    Four trials were con ducted to determine the effect of different implants on steers and heifers grazing native grass pastures for different lengths of time. In addition, two groups of steers were followed through a ...
  • Kster, H.H.; Cochran, R.C.; Vanzant, E.S.; St Jean, G.; Titgemeyer, Evan C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1996)
    Twelve ruminally fistulated steers were used to evaluate the effect of changing the proportion of supplemental degradable intake protein (DIP) derived from urea on forage intake and digestion. Steers had ad libitum access ...
  • Kster, H.H.; Cochran, R.C.; Vanzant, E.S.; Olson, K. C.; Jones, Timothy J.; Titgemeyer, Evan C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1996)
    Ninety pregnant Angus Hereford cows consuming low-quality, tallgrass-prairie hay were used to evaluate the influence of changing the amount of supplemental degradable intake protein (DIP) derived from urea on body ...
  • Coffey, K.P.; Brazle, F.K.; Lomas, Lyle W. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1996)
    Seventy-two mixed breed steers (679 lb avg BW) grazing smooth bromegrass pastures for 112 days were fed 2.2 lb/day of either a control supplement (PC) or one containing .075 lb/day of magnesium-mica (PMM). Following ...
  • Coe, M.L.; Wallace, N.; Kemp, K.E.; Parrott, J.C.; Nagaraja, T. G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1996)
    Twelve ruminally cannulated Holstein steers were used to determine the effect of monensin (0, 20, 30, and 40 g/ton) on grain bloat. Steers were fed a bloat-provocative, high-grain diet at 1% of body weight twice daily. ...
