  • Sonon, R.N. Jr.; Dalke, B.S.; Holthaus, D.L.; Pfaff, L.; Bolsen, K.K.; Young, Matthew A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1994)
    This experiment was conducted to determine the effect of grain content on the nutritive value of corn silage. Whole-plant silage dry matter (DM) increased, whereas neutral detergent fiber (NDF) and acid detergent fiber ...
  • Cochran, R.C.; Beaty, J.L.; Vanzant, E.S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1994)
    One hundred twenty, pregnant, Angus × Hereford cows (1111 lb) grazing dormant bluestem range were used to evaluate whether the effect of altered frequency of supplementation on cow performance depended on the grain ...
  • Prasai, R.K.; Mease, L.E.; Vogt, L.R.; Kropf, Donald H.; Fung, Daniel Y. C.; Kastner, Curtis L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1994)
    Beef loins were sprayed with 1.5% lactic acid either before or after vacuum storage, both before and after vacuum storage, and before vacuum packaging followed by a water spray after storage. We stored treated loins ...

  • Coffey, K.P.; Brazle, F.K.; Moyer, Joseph L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1994)
    A total of 72 mixed breed steer s from two sources was used in an experiment to determine the effect of lasalocid and length of morning grazing prior to weighing on weight and shrink of steers grazing smooth bromegrass ...
  • Brazle, F.K. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1994)
    Long-hauled calves (n=170 were either mass-medicated with Micotil® or served as controls. Micotil reduced mortality (1.2 vs 8.1%) and morbidity (59.7 vs 75.5%), but it did not improve ADG.
  • Peters, C.W.; Laudert, S.B.; Corah, L.R.; Krehbiel, C.L.; Nichols, David A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1994)
    Feeding the ionophore monensin to yearling beef bulls improved (P<.05) weight gain by 4.2%. Final hip height was similar between treatments, but bulls fed monensin had almost 1 cm greater (P<.01) scrotal circumference ...

  • Brandt, Robert T., Jr.; Reinhardt, Christopher D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1994)
    Thirty-eight Holstein steers (avg 339 lb) were grouped into four weight blocks, with two pens per block. Within each block, cattle in one pen were fed at 8:00 a.m. and those in the other at 8:00 p.m. All cattle were ...
  • Brazle, F.K.; Stokka, Gerald L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1994)
    Long-hauled calves averaging 293 lb were allotted to groups fed with or without protected lysine-methionine (Smartamine ML®). Protected lysine-methionin e did not improve ADG in the first 28 days but did improve ADG ...
  • Brandt, Robert T., Jr.; Reinhardt, Christopher D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1994)
    One hundred eighty yearling steers (743 lb) were blocked by weight; implanted with Synovex® (S), Synovex plus Finaplix® (SF), or not implanted (C); and fed diets containing 11.75% (L), 13.0% (M), or 14.25% (H) crude ...
  • Shuey, S.A.; Brandt, Robert T., Jr.; Gramlich, S.M. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1994)
    Sodium bicarbonate at 1 or 2% of dry matter intake was evaluated as a means of alleviating subacute acidosis, using six fistulated Holstein steers in a controlled acidosis challenge model. Steers were feed challenged ...
  • Arthington, J.D.; Corah, L.R.; Utter, S.D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1994)
    To determine the trace mineral content of Kansas native grasses, samples were collected from four locations of tall or intermediate grasses and four locations of short grasses. Copper (Cu) and zinc (Zn) levels tended ...
  • Healy, B.J.; Brandt, Robert T., Jr.; Gramlich, S.M. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1994)
    Eight ruminally cannulated crossbred steers (1225 lb) were used to investigate the effects of 5 vs 10% alfalfa hay or pellets on rumen characteristics during subacute acidosis. Alfalfa hay was obtained from one source, ...
  • Dalke, B.S.; Bolsen, K.K.; Sonon, R.N. Jr.; Holthaus, D.L.; Young, Matthew A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1994)
    Three whole-plant sorghum silages, each with or without 25% added rolled grain sorghum were fed to six medium-framed, ruminally cannulated steers in a 6 × 6 Latin square design. The grain sorghum silage rations (DeKalb ...
  • Lindell, S.A.; Brandt, Robert T., Jr.; Stokka, Gerald L.; Gramlich, S.M.; Milton, C.T. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1994)
    Two trials were conducted to evaluate the effect of high dietary levels of trace minerals on performance and health of stressed calves. In trial 1, 221 Brahman crossbred steers (674 l b, 1/8 to 1/4 Brahman) were used ...
  • Greene, G.L.; Cilek, J.E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1994)
    Release of parasitic wasps has resulted in stable fly reductions averaging 28, 42 and 38% for 1991, 1992, and 1993, respectively, with considerable variation from feedlot to feedlot. Costs for parasites plus ...
