    Revalor® implants (containing trenbolone acetate plus estradiol) were evaluated in a grazing-finishing system using steers with a known previous implant history. Grazing gains were not improved by either Ralgro® or ...
  • Perry, R.C.; Corah, L.R.; Beal, W.E.; Kiracofe, G.H.; Minton, J. Ernest; Cochran, R.C.; Brethour, J.R.; Stevenson, Jeffrey S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-10-20)
    Twenty-six, Hereford × Angus, suckled cows were utilized to determine patterns of follicular development and associated changes in reproductive hormones during postpartum anestrus and first estrous cycles. Ultrasonography per ...
  • Vanier, M. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-10-15)
    In recent years, food safety has become an issue of concern for the beef industry, beef processors, and the consuming public. Even though America has the safest and most wholesome food supply in the world, consumers ...
  • Cochran, R.C.; Brandt, Robert T., Jr.; Vanzant, E.S.; Clary, E.M.; Owensby, Clenton E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-10-20)
    During the initial 3 years of a 4-year experiment, average daily gain tended to increase in direct proportion to increasing levels of grain sorghum supplementation (2.3, 2.5 and 2.7 lb gain per day for the control and ...
  • Vanzant, E.S.; Cochran, R.C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-10-20)
    Sixteen, ruminally cannulated, beef steers were used in an intake/digestion experiment to determine the effects of supplementing a dormant, winter-harvested, bluestem range, forage diet with increasing amounts of ...
  • Brandt, Robert T., Jr.; Elliott, J.K.; Nagaraja, T. G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-11-02)
    Interactions between supplemental fat (3.5%) and monensin plus tylosin (25 plus 10 g/ton, respectively) on animal performance and carcass traits were evaluated in a 125-d finishing trial. Interactions on feed consumption ...
  • Harmon, D.L.; Flood, A.D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-11-02)
    The influence of drinking water treatment (Oxion Inc., Hugoton, KS) on digestion and metabolism was evaluated in steers fed low- and high-forage diets. Water treatment did not influence digestibility of any nutrient ...
  • Simms, D.; Mintert, J.; Maddux, A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-10-20)
    The performance, carcass characteristics, and economic data from over 6,200 steers entered in Kansas Steer Futurities from 1974 through 1988 were summarized to evaluate production trends and profitability. The ...
  • Brandt, Robert T., Jr.; Anderson, S.J.; Elliott, J.K. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-11-02)
    Response to monensin (Control, 12.5, or 25 g/ton, air dry basis) by yearling steers fed a diet with 4% added fat was evaluated. For the entire study (104 d), daily gain, feed consumption and feed efficiency were ...
  • Stanley, T.A.; Cochran, R.C.; Harmon, D.L.; Vanzant, E.S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-11-02)
    Four, ruminally cannulated, Hereford × Angus cows were used to study factors associated with feed intake patterns around parturition. Feed intake during the final trimester of gestation was relatively stable, in spite ...
  • Garcia-Lagombra, G.; Harbers, L.H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-11-02)
    Corn grain samples collected over several years were used to develop equations for dry matter, crude protein, crude fiber, and ether extract (crude fat). Two computer models were used to select samples having a range ...
