  • Albright, M.; Schroeder, Ted C.; Langemeier, Michael R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1993)
    This study examined the relative effects of corn price and cattle performance factors on steer finishing cost of gain. Seasonal analysis of cost of gain and the factors affecting it was also conducted. Using over 10 ...

    Data from yearling Angus and Angus crossbred beef heifers from a commercial ranch were used to identify factors affecting pregnancy rates (n=342) and calving difficulty (n=295). Production data analyzed included prebreeding ...
  • Simms, D.D.; Schwenke, J.R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1993)
    Results of 13 sales of Angus (n=185) and Simmental (n=544) bulls at central bull tests in Kansas from 1988 through 1992 were analyzed to determine the relationship between performance and the price received. The Kansas ...
  • Schroeder, Ted C.; Mintert, J.; Jones, R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1993)
    Previous research indicates that the number of bids received on pens of fed cattle has a positive influence on price. This study was undertaken to determine what factors influence the number of bids received on pens ...
  • Soita, H.W.; Brent, B.E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1993)
    High levels of the thiamin-destroying enzyme, thiaminase I, were found in the feces of 3 of 50 apparently healthy dairy cows. All high fecal thiaminase I levels returned to normal within 3 weeks, indicating that ...
  • Peters, C.W.; Brazle, F.K.; Corah, L.R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1993)
    Heifers developed on high-endophyte, tall fescue gained half as much weight (56 vs 117 lb; P<.01) and had a lower 35-day pregnancy rate (15 vs 58%; P<.01) compared to heifers fed low endophyte, tall fescue. Based ...
  • Minton, J. Ernest; Knoppel, E.L.; Stewart, R.E.; Viker, S.D.; Kiracofe, G.H.; Stevenson, Jeffrey S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1993)
    The "suckling response" maintains anestrus in beef cows for about 40 to 60 days postpartum. The suckling response remains intact in mastectomized cows, so stimulation of the inguinal area, and not milk flow or ...
  • Eck, T.P.; Corah, L.R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1993)
    Feedlot performance of steers implanted with Compudose®, Implus-S®, or Synovex-S® was very similar. No statistical differences were detected among treatments. However, implanted steers gained an average of 4% faster ...
  • Stokka, G.L.; Brandt, Robert T., Jr.; Edwards, A.J.; Spire, M.F.; Smith, J.E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1993)
    Twenty-four finishing steers (758 lb) were subcutaneously vaccinated and revaccinated 31 days later with 1) sterile saline, 2) a clostridial perfringens C&D toxoid, or 3) a 7-way clostridial bacterin-toxoid to evaluate ...
  • Beaty, J.L.; Cochran, R.C.; Lintzenich, B.A.; Vanzant, E.S.; Morrill, J.L.; Brandt, Robert T., Jr.; Johnson, D.E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1993)
    Eight ruminally cannulated steers were used to determine digestion characteristics of soybean meal/sorghum grain supplements containing 12%, 20%, 30%, or 39% crude protein (CP) fed either daily (7X) or three times ...
  • Lintzenich, B.A.; Cochran, R.C.; Vanzant, E.S.; Beaty, J.L.; Brandt, Robert T., Jr.; Nagaraja, T. G.; St. Jean, G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1993)
    A digestion trial was conducted to determine the effect of method of processing supplemental alfalfa on the intake and utilization of dormant, bluestem-range forage. Supplement treatments were 1) control: no supplement; ...
  • Coblentz, W.K.; Fritz, J.O.; Bolsen, K.K. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1993)
    A simple system is described that uses a hinged metal baling unit and a hydraulic press to make 4.0 × 4.3 × 5.3 inch wire-tied, laboratory- scale, hay bales. A comparison of densities of conventional, small, alfalfa ...
  • Taylor, R.K.; Warmann, G.W.; Plaschka, B.M.; Blasi, Dale A.; Newdigger, Glenn E., Jr. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1993)
    The amounts of wheat or hybrid sudan hay wasted with three large round bale feeding methods were evaluated at two ranch locations. The feeding methods were: 1) bale processor (Hay Forage Industries BP 25®) used to ...
  • Peters, C.W.; Corah, L.R.; Cochran, R.C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1993)
    Feeding rumen-escape lipid or soybean oil in a range supplement to beef cow resulted in elevated blood cholesterol and enhanced luteinizing hormone (LH) release compared to a control (milo and soybean meal) ...
  • Greene, G.L.; Cilek, J.E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1993)
