    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)
    A survey of production levels and management practices of 205 cow herds representing over 26,000 cows in Kansas was conducted in 1991. These operations were located throughout Kansas except for the Northwest corner. ...
  • Simms, D.D.; Kuhl, G.L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1993)
    In a commercial feedyard trial, 242 Holstein steer calves averaging 378 lb were used to compare effects of six alternative implant programs, consisting of sequential use of Synovex-S® or a combination of estradiol and ...
  • Taylor, R.K.; Kueck, D.L.; Addison, C.E.; Blasi, Dale A.; Maxwell, Thomas M.; Shroyer, James P. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1993)
    Net- and twine-wrapped alfalfa hay bales were stored from July, 1990 to April, 1991 in three Kansas counties (Reno, Saline, and Stafford). Dry matter losses and changes in acid detergent fiber and acid detergent ...
  • Heer, William F.; Blasi, Dale A.; Fjell, Dale L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1993)
    Six summer annuals and three forage sorghums were evaluated for forage yield and quality under south central Kansas dryland conditions. When cut in the late boot to early heading stage, all forage types (millet, ...
  • Schalles, R.R.; Glaze, J.B.; Mallen-Spinzi, R.; Andries, K.M.; Rost, C.J.; Johnson, M.Z.; Olson, W.; Dikeman, Michael E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1993)
    Ultrasound-measured ribeye area (REA) expected progeny differences (EPD) were calculated for 2974 Brangus cattle. Carcass data were collected from 168 steer progeny sired by eight bulls with ultrasound-measured ribeye ...
  • Holz, J.P.; Houghton, P.L.; Spire, M.F. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1993)
    Gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) was administered to a group of 13- to 14- month-old Angus and Angus crossbred repeat-breeding heifers at the time of the second or third artificial insemination to determine ...
  • Warren, K.E.; Hunt, Melvin C.; Hague, M.A.; Kropf, Donald H.; Stroda, Sally L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1993)
    Outbreaks of food-borne illness have emphasized the need for proper cooking of ground beef patties. Because of difficulties in measuring internal temperature of ground beef patties, visual indicators usually are used ...
  • Milton, C.T.; Brandt, Robert T., Jr. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1993)
    One hundred forty-four medium-framed crossbred steers averaging 857 lb were used to evaluate steer performance and determine net energy (NE) values of finishing diets that included dried bakery product (DBP). DBP ...
  • Campbell, R.E.; Hunt, Melvin C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1993)
    Using a BaaderTM desinewing machine on beef shanks can increase the value of a beef carcass by $1 to $5 by improving palatability and texture and reducing fat. By varying belt pressure and drum opening size and ...
