  • Arthington, J.D.; Larson, Robert L.; Corah, L.R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1992)
    Two Kansas cow/calf herds known to be copper deficient were utilized to examine the effect of slow-release copper boluses. In herd I, 34 spring-calving cows and calves were divided into a treated and control group at ...
  • Smith, M.W.; Blanding, M.R.; Corah, L.R.; Blasi, Dale A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1992)
    Two experiments were conducted to investigate whether level or source of energy and protein supplementation would reduce the incidence or severity of clinical toxicity in cattle fed forages high in nitrate (NO3). Heavily ...
  • Lin, Chunjian; Brent, B.E.; Bolsen, K.K.; Fung, Daniel Y. C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1992)
    Twenty three species and 306 strains of epiphytic lactic acid bacteria (LAB) were found for two cuttings of alfalfa, each harvested at three stages of maturity, and three whole-plant corn hybrids. Epiphytic LAB counts ...
  • Sonon, R.N.; Dalke, B.S.; Suazo, R.; Pfaff, L.; Bolsen, K.K. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1992)
    Twenty corn hybrids were grown under irrigation and harvested at 90 % of the kernel milk line. Hybrid had a significant effect on plant height, whole-plant dry matter (DM) and DM yield, grain yield, stover yield, and ...
  • Bolsen, K.K.; Sonon, R.N.; Dalke, B.; Pope, Ronald V.; Riley, Jack G.; Laytimi, A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1992)
    Results from 26 trials comparing fermentation, dry matter (DM) recovery, and effects on cattle performance of inoculated or nonprotein nitrogen (NPN)-treated silages vs. controls were summarized using paired t-test analysis. ...
  • Bolsen, K.K.; Tiemann, D.G.; Sonon, R.N.; Hart, R.A.; Dalke, B.; Dickerson, J.T.; Lin, C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1992)
    Whole-plant corn silages treated with either Pioneer 1174® or Biotal® inoculants were preserved more efficiently than control silages. They had slightly higher dry matter (DM) recoveries; more lactic acid; higher lactic ...
  • Harbers, L.H.; Bolsen, K.K.; Hartadi, H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1992)
    Dry matter yield of grain sorghum alone averaged more than 1.0 ton per acre higher than that of intercropped grain sorghum-soybeans in both 1988 and 1989. All silage yields were lower in 1989 because of drought. ...
  • Langemeier, Michael R.; Mintert, J.; Schroeder, Ted C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1992)
    This study examined the relative importance of price and animal performance factors on cattle finishing profitability. Using data from a single feedlot, sale prices, feeder prices, and corn prices explained 90 to 95% ...
  • Johnson, M.Z.; Schalles, R.R.; Olson, W.; Dikeman, Michael E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1992)
    Heritabilities and genetic correlations for ultrasound-measured ribeye area and fat thickness, as well as growth traits and scrotal circumference, were determined using performance records of 1613 Brangus calves ...
  • Brandt, Robert T., Jr.; Pope, Ronald V. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1992)
    To evaluate effects and potential interaction of supplemental fat (0 to 4% tallow) and monensin (0, 20, 40 g/ton) in a corn-based finishing diet, 96 Continental crossbred steers (860 lb) were used in a 2×3 factorially ...
  • Beaty, J.L.; Cochran, R.C.; Lintzenich, B.A.; Vanzant, E.S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1992)
    Fifteen ruminally cannulated beef steers were used in a pasture supplementation experiment to determine the effects of frequency of energy supplementation on intake and digestion of tallgrass prairie forage during early ...
  • Vanzant, E.S.; Cochran, R.C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1992)
    One hundred thirteen pregnant Hereford × Angus cows were used to study the effect of increasing levels of supplemental alfalfa hay on performance when grazing winter bluestem range. Although no differences were ...
  • Brazle, F.K.; Kuhl, G.L.; Binns, C.E.; Zoellner, K.O.; Corah, L.R.; Schalles, R.R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1992)
    Spring-born suckling beef calves were offered salt-limited creep feeds containing either high protein, high energy, or energy plus Bovatec® from August 15 to October 15 in a 3- year study. Creep feeding improved ...
  • Rusche, W.C.; Cochran, R.C.; Corah, L.R.; Stevenson, Jeffrey S.; Harmon, D.L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1992)
    Increasing the amount of dietary protein above the NRC requirement increased weight gain of nursing first-calf heifers. Feeding a protein source with higher ruminal escape potential and increasing protein in the diet ...
  • Larson, Robert L.; Arthington, J.D.; Corah, L.R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1992)
    Trace mineral nutrition is important to production efficiency and animal health. Trace mineral imbalances may be the roots of many diagnosed or undiagnosed problems in a herd. The low cost of a complete mineral ...
  • Dickerson, J.T.; Bolsen, K.K.; Brent, B.E.; Lin, C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1992)
    Corn and forage sorghum silages were stored in small (simulated), farm-scale, bunker silos for 180 days, and dry matter (DM) and organic matter (OM) losses; fermentation characteristics; and temperatures were measured at ...
  • Dickerson, J.T.; Ashbell, G.; Bolsen, K.K.; Brent, B.E.; Pfaff, L.; Niwa, Y. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1992)
    The top 3 ft. of silage from each of 30 horizontal silos in western Kansas was sampled at three locations across the width of the silo for 2 consecutive years (1990 and 1991). Ninety-five percent of the silages were ...
