  • Brandt, Robert T., Jr.; Kuhl, G.L.; Brazle, F.K.; Corah, L.R.; Pope, Ronald V. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1990)
    Feed value of aspirated oat liftings (AOL), a by-product of the oat milling industry, was evaluated by using it to replace 33, 67, or 100% of 36 lb/bu oats in a growing diet fed to heifers. Ammonia treatment of AOL was ...
  • Viker, S.D.; Kiracofe, G.H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1990)
    It is generally accepted that the suckling stimulus and the interactions between lactation and level of nutrition regulate the interval from calving to cycling in beef cows. However, rnastectomized cows (udder removed) ...
  • Hart, R.A.; Niroomand, F.; Bolsen, K.K.; Lubinski, M.A.; Aimutis, W.R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1990)
    Indigenous lactic acid bacteria (LAB) were isolated from five silage crops in the 1987 growing season: wheat, alfalfa, com, interseeded grain sorghum and soybeans, and forage sorghum. All crops had post-harvest LAB counts ...
  • Houghton, P.L.; Simms, D.D.; Higgins, James J. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1990)
    Long yearling steers (n=997) of various biological types from two origins were used to test performance and carcass trait uniformity of unsorted cattle, visually sorted cattle, and cattle sorted by ultrasound and hip ...
  • Simms, D.D.; Marston, T.T. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1990)
    Cost/return analyses of 56 Kansas cow/calf operations were summarized to determine the major factors influencing 1987 and 1988 cow herd profitability. Gross returns and costs on a per cow unit basis were extremely variable. ...
  • Larson, B.L.; Kiracofe, G.H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1990)
    The wide variance in anatomical characteristics among heifers born co-twin to a bull make diagnosis of freemartinism by measurements of vaginal length or the distance between the anus and vulva unreliable. Change in serum ...
  • Gramlich, S.M.; Brandt, Robert T., Jr.; Pope, Ronald V. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1990)
    A trial with 100 head of crossbred steers (avg wt 879 lb) was conducted to determine the effects of tallow (none, 2, 4, 6, 8% of ration dry matter) on the performance and carcass characteristics of finishing cattle fed ...
  • Brazle, F.K. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1990)
    Including Deccox® in a free-choice, intake-limiting, grain-mineral mixture tended to increase grazing stocker gains and substantially reduced the percentage of newly arrived cattle treated for sickness and the number of ...
  • Clary, E.M.; Brandt, Robert T., Jr.; Nagaraja, T. G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1990)
    Batch culture fermentations were used to determine the effects of fat type [none, animal tallow (AT), soybean oil soapstock (SOY), or yellow grease (YG)] and ionophore type [none, lasalocid (L), monensin + tylosin in a ...
  • White, J.S.; Bolsen, K.K.; Hart, R.A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1990)
    Lactic acid bacteria (LAB) inoculants and several enzyme additives were evaluated in various combinations using fifth cutting alfalfa. The field-wilted crop was characterized by a high buffer capacity (63.0 meq/100g of ...
  • Brazle, F.K.; Coffey, K.P.; Corah, L.R.; Moyer, Joseph L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1990)
    In three trials, there was no gain response by stockers offered supplemental niacin while grazing tall fescue pasture in the spring or fall. There was a trend toward lower body temperatures for niacin-supplemented cattle, ...
  • Vanzant, E.S.; Cochran, R.C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1990)
    Six ruminally and eight bi-fistulated (ruminal and esophageal), 2-yr-old beef heifers were used to study the effects of pregnancy on forage intake and utilization under grazing conditions. During the third trimester of ...
  • Hannah, S.M.; Cochran, R.C.; Harmon, D.L.; Vanzant, E.S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1990)
    A digestion trial was conducted to determine dormant, bluestem-range forage intake, digestion, and protein flow to the small intestine in steers receiving different crude protein (CP) supplements. Dietary treatments were ...
  • Coffey, K.P.; Brazle, F.K.; Moyer, Joseph L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1990)
    Sixty-four stocker steers were offered endophyte-free fescue hay ad libitum, with either bromegrass or high-endophyte fescue seed screenings and supplements with or without Amaferm8 (Aspergillus oryzae fermentation ...
  • Perry, R.C.; Corah, L.R.; Beal, W.E.; Kiracofe, G.H.; Cochran, R.C.; Simms, D.D.; Brethour, J.R.; Stevenson, Jeffrey S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1990)
    Twenty-eight Hereford x Angus cows were utilized to determine the effects of dietary energy level before and after calving on reproductive function and production in suckled beef cows. Low levels of dietary energy before ...
  • Apple, J.K.; Simms, D.D.; Kuhl, G.L.; Dikeman, Michael E.; Kastner, Curtis L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1990)
    Over the entire feeding period (249 d). Finaplix® (F) plus Synovex-S® (S)-implanted steers had higher (P<.05) daily gains than F+Ralgro® (R), F; and control (C) steers. All treatments produced higher (P<.05) daily gains ...
