  • 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 ...
  • Cranwell, C.D.; Simms, D.D.; Brethour, J.R.; Unruh, John A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1992)
    Open, cull beef cows fed a high concentrate ration for 28 or 56 days and implanted with Finaplix-H®, Synovex-H®, or both had improved gain and feed efficiency compared to controls (nonimplanted cows). Changes ...
  • Schalles, R.R.; Powell, Douglas A.; Cundiff, L.V.; Glaze, J.B. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1992)
    The rat-tail syndrome occurs in a small percentage of calves produced by crossing Continental breeds of cattle with Angus or Holstein. These calves are characterized by short, curly, malformed, sometimes sparse body ...
  • Mintert, J.; Jones, R.; Brazle, F.; Schroeder, Ted C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1992)
    An analysis of more than 1400 pens of cattle marketed during 1990 examined the influence of several cattle traits and marketing factors on fed cattle prices. Cattle quality grade had an important impact on packer ...
  • Dickerson, J.T.; Bolsen, K.K.; Brent, B.E.; Lin, C.; Boyer, John E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1992)
    Corn and forage sorghum silages were stored in pilot-scale silos for 180 days, and dry matter (DM) and organic matter (OM) recoveries and estimated OM recovery were measured at three depths within the top 3 ft. of ...
