  • Cochran, R.C.; Towne, G.; Olson, K. C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1995)
    A 16-band multispectral radiometer (MSR) was used to measure the amount of forage biomass present on several dates in native tallgrass prairie pastures during the 1992 to 1994 growing seasons. Reflectance data ...
  • Coblentz, W.K.; Fritz, J.O.; Bolsen, K.K.; Cochran, R.C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1995)
    The relationships between storage time and several chemical indices for forage quality were established for alfalfa hay baled at two moisture levels (29.9 and 19.7%) in conventional and laboratory bale s made at 1.0, ...
  • Glaze, J.B. Jr.; Schalles, R.R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1995)
    Performance data from a Polled Hereford herd selected for improved feed conversion were used to calculate a variety of genetic parameters. Heritabilities were .14 for weaning wt, .18 for maternal weaning wt., and .19 ...
  • Cochran, R.C.; Koster, H.H.; Vanzant, E.S.; Jones, Timothy J.; Olson, K. C.; Titgemeyer, Evan C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1995)

  • Glaze, J.B. Jr.; Schalles, R.R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1995)
    Performance records of 1459 Polled Hereford cattle born from 1967 through 1979 were analyzed to estimate genetic parameters and the direct and correlated responses that were due to selection for feed conversion. Her ...
  • Campbell, C.G.; St Jean, G.; Titgemeyer, Evan C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1995)
    Two studies were conducted to evaluate sulfur amino acid requirements of growing steers. In trial 1, six ruminally cannulated steers (352 lb) were used to determine methionine requirements . Treatments were abomasal infusions ...
  • Holthaus, D.L.; Dalke, B.S.; Pfaff, L.; Boyer, John E.; Bolsen, K.K.; Young, Matthew A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1995)
    Corn and forage sorghum silages were stored in small bunker silos for 180 days. Dry matter (DM) and organic matter (OM) losses, fermentation characteristics , in-situ DM digestibility, and temperatures were measured ...
  • 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, 1995)
    One hundred twenty medium-framed steers were fed one of six high (90%) concentrate rations: control (0), 5, 10, or 15% pelleted wheat middlings (WM) replacing the concentrate (dry rolled corn) and 5 or 10% pelleted WM ...
  • Dalke, B.S.; Bolsen, K.K.; Sonon, R.N. Jr.; Young, Matthew A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1995)
    Six medium-framed steers, fitted with ruminal cannulae were used in a 6 × 6 Latin square design and fed the following six high concentrat e (90%) rations: control; 5, 10, or 15% pelleted wheat middlings (WM) replacing the ...
  • Geske, J.M.; Schalles, R.R.; Zoellner, K.O. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1995)
    Scrotal circumference measurements and other data were collected on 4,218 Angus, Red Angus, Brangus, Charolais , Gelbvieh, Hereford, Polled Hereford, Limousine, Salers, and Simmental bulls born in the spring of 1991. ...
