    Ruminal degradation of alfalfa and prairie hay protein was estimated using a proteolytic enzyme from Streptomyces griseus with or without pretreatment with cellulase or a broad spectrum carbohydrase (driselase). Estimates ...
  • Cochran, R.C.; Vanzant, E.S.; Titgemeyer, Evan C.; Jones, Timothy J.; Olson, K. C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1996)
    A study was conducted to determine the effect of varying the amount of supplemental degradable intake protein (DIP) and starch on prairie hay intake and digestibility. In general, DIP increased forage intake, whereas ...
  • Schalles, R.R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1996)
    A form of congenital hypotrichosis, commonly known as rat-tail, is characterized by the colored hair anywhere on the body being short, curly, malformed, and sometimes sparse and an abnormal tail switch. The "rat-tail" ...
  • McFarlane, B.J.; Stokka, Gerald L.; Basaraba, R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1996)
    One 550 lb steer was injected subcutaneously twice, once on each side of the neck, with 5 milliliters of Ultrabac 7 ficlostridial vaccine with a new 16 gauge, 3/4 inch needle. The injections were given 30 days and 36 ...
  • Corah, L.; Dargatz, D.; Peters, C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1996)
    A National Forage Survey was conducted in 18 states to determine the trace mineral and related nutrient content of forages grown in the United States. Most forages sampled were harvested hays utilized as winter feed ...
  • Milton, C.T.; Brandt, Robert T., Jr.; Kuhl, G.L.; Titgemeyer, Evan C.; Drouillard, James S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1996)
    Three hundred eighty-four crossbred, yearling steers (810 lb) were used to evaluate soybean meal (SBM), sunflower meal (SFM), and combinations of the two as protein supplements and supplemental protein effects in diets ...
  • Coffey, K.P.; Brazle, F.K. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1996)
    Forty-eight mixed-breed steers from two sources were used in a 141-day feedlot study to compare a control ration (C) with a ration containing magnesium-mica (MM; 9 lb/ton). No diet cattle source interactions were detected. ...
  • Hoffman, D.P.; Stevenson, Jeffrey S.; Krehbiel, C.L.; Nichols, David A.; McKee, R.M. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1996)
    Suckled cows and virgin heifers received a novel treatment that included PGF 2", GnRH, and norgestomet, with the objective of inducing estrus in prepubertal heifers and anestrous suckled cows, as well as synchronizing ...
