  • Greene, G.L.; Cilek, J.E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1993)
    During 1992, adult stable fly populations were sampled in 25 Kansas feedlots. A native stable fly parasitic wasp, Spalangia nigroaenea, was released in 19 of these feedlots. Stable fly populations were reduced up to ...
  • Freeman, A.S.; Coffey, K.P. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1993)
    One hundred twenty-six crossbred steers and sixty-three crossbred heifers (704 lb BW) were used to evaluate the effects of energy supplementation on animal performance during grazing of endophyte-infected tall fescue ...
  • Taylor, R.K.; Mahanna, W.C.; Blasi, Dale A.; Maxwell, Thomas M.; Shroyer, James P. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1993)
    Eleven large, round, alfalfa bales were treated with Pioneer® Brand 1155 Alfalfa Hay Inoculant and nine bales were untreated. The initial baling moistures were 14.1% (low) or 17.6% (medium). No significant differences were ...
  • Peters, C.W.; Larson, Robert L.; Corah, L.R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1993)
    Melengestrol acetate (MGA®) and prostaglandin F2α (PG; Lutalyse®) were used to synchronize estrus in 757 yearling, virgin, beef heifers on six commercial ranches. Heifers were inseminated artificially (AI) 12 h ...
  • Fike, G.D.; Simms, D.D.; Cochran, R.C.; Brandt, Robert T., Jr.; Vanzant, E.S.; Kuhl, G.L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1993)
    Sixteen ruminally fistulated steers (avg wt. = 998 lb) were used in a 30-day conventional digestion trial to examine the effects of protein supplementation on intake and digestion of ammoniated wheat straw. Steers ...
  • Fike, G.D.; Simms, D.D.; Brandt, Robert T., Jr.; Cochran, R.C.; Vanzant, E.S.; Kuhl, G.L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1993)
    Mature, crossbred beef cows (n = 87 in 1990-91, n = 84 in 1991-1992) were used to determine the effects of protein supplementation to cows fed ammoniated wheat straw during late gestation. Treatments included: 1) Control ...
  • Holthaus, D.L.; Bonilla, D.R.; Pfaff, L.; Haverkamp, D.; Dalke, B.S.; Sonon, R.N.; Budiongo, K.; Bolsen, K.K.; Young, Matthew A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1993)
    Alfalfa silages were made in pilot- and farm-scale silos, and five sealing treatments were compared. After 90 days, sealing dramatically reduced DM losses at the 5 and 10 in. depths in the farm silos and at the 0 to ...
  • Simms, D.D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1993)
    The performance of bulls (n = 656 for Angus and n = 1343 for Simmental) at the Beloit and Potwin bulls tests from 1989 to 1992 were compared to their expected progeny differences (EPDs). In general, correlations between ...
  • Andries, K.M.; Schalles, R.R.; Franke, D.E.; Dikeman, Michael E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1993)
    The effects of primary color (black, red, or white) on performance and carcass characteristics of 253 cross-bred calves were evaluated. The only effect of color was that white calves had lighter birth weights than ...
  • Bolze, R.P.; Peters, C.W. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1993)
    Injectable estradiol (estradiol benzoate) was evaluated for its effect on the reproductive performance of yearling beef heifers whose estrous cycles were synchronized using the melengestrol acetate/prostaglandin F 2 α ...
  • Simms, D.; Langemeier, Michael R.; Utter, S.; Fike, G.; Bandyk, C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1993)
