    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 ...

    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, 2010-09-15)
    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, 2010-09-15)
    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, 2010-09-17)
    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, 2010-09-15)
    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, 2010-09-15)
    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 ...
  • Gregory, K.E.; Cundiff, L.V.; Koch, R.M.; Koohmaraie, M.; Dikeman, Michael E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-09-17)
    Data from nine parental breeds and three composite populations described in the preceding article were used to calculate heritabilities and phenotypic and genotypic correlations among carcass and meat traits. Phenotypic ...

    Commercial beef heifers (n=1863) from 16 different sources were used to evaluate the influence of management practices and biological traits on first-service conception and overall pregnancy rates. Frame score, initial ...
  • Glaze, J.B.; Schalles, R.R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-09-17)
    Performance data from a Polled Hereford herd selected for feed conversion were used in the calculation of heritabilities and genetic correlations for birth weight (BWT), weaning weight (WWT), and yearling weight ...
  • Glaze, J.B.; Schalles, R.R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-10-05)
