  • Warren, K.; Kastner, Curtis L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1989)
    Starting 3 days postmortem, sections from eight USDA Choice or better, yield grade 4, strip loins were dry-aged (aged unpackaged) or vacuum-aged (aged in vacuum bags) for an additional 11 days. The dry-aged loins lost ...
  • Corah, L.R.; Beal, W.E.; Spire, M.F.; Stevenson, Jeffrey S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1989)
    Injecting a GnRH-analog at the time of estrus or at insemination did not generally improve conception rates in heifers inseminated following a synchronized estrus. However, within some herds. a significant positive ...
  • Bock, B.; Brandt, Robert T., Jr.; Harmon, D.L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1989)
    Feeding fat increased feed intake and average daily gain, but feed efficiency was not affected. Feeding high levels of calcium (.9%) had no overall effect, but may tend to increase intake when fed with diets that contain ...
  • Kreikemeier, K.K.; Harmon, D.L.; Gross, K.; Armendariz, C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1989)
    Pancreatic alpha-amylase activity was 54% higher in cattle fed at twice maintenance energy than in cattle fed at maintenance and was 52% greater in hay-fed than grain-fed cattle. Increased pancreatic alpha-amylase activity ...
  • Bolsen, K.K.; Laytimi, A.; Azimi, S.; Hart, R.A.; Niroomand, F.; Bradford, J.; Clare, L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1989)
    We have measured silage fermentation dynamics in over 50 crops since the development of a 4 x 14 inch PVC pipe, laboratory-scale silo in 1984. In many of these experiments, our objective was to determine how inoculants ...
  • Bolsen, K.K.; Laytimi, A.; Drysdale, A.D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1989)
    Foraform® was evaluated in four trials using alfalfa, corn, and two forage sorghums harvested in 1987 and ensiled in PVC laboratory silos. There was a dramatic crop by Foraform interaction, with Foraform delaying and ...
  • Bolsen, K.K.; Laytimi, A.; Pope, Ronald V.; Riley, Jack G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1989)
    Results from 22 trials comparing dry matter (DM) recovery and cattle performance of inoculated or non-protein nitrogen (NPN)-treated silages to controls were summarized using paired t-test analysis. Inoculants consistently ...
  • Simms, D.D.; Kuhl, G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1989)
    Two field trials were conducted to evaluate limited-creep feeding of spring- born calves using pelleted creep rations with either 0.5, 5, or 10% salt. Average daily gain was increased (P<.05) over controls in trial 2 and ...
  • Brazle, F.; Kuhl, G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1989)
    Steer calves gained faster (P<.001) and required fewer treatments per animal (P<.01) than newly castrated bull calves during a 29-day receiving period. Liquamycin® (LA-200) injection at arrival increased steer gains ...
  • Kuhl, G.; Simms, D.; Ritter, R.; Houghton, P.; Hartman, Paul D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1989)
    Five field trials were conducted with 762 steers and heifers to evaluate Finaplix® in combination with Ralgro® or Synovex® for growing and finishing programs. Effects on cattle performance and carcass characteristics ...
  • Auen, Lisa M.; Owensby, Clenton E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1989)
    Intensive-early stocking (lES) in the Kansas Flint Hills has greatly increased livestock production efficiency. The potential for grazing of regrowth on IES pastures the following winter was studied by mowing different ...
  • Esmail, S.H.M.; Hartadi, H.; Harbers, L.H.; Shirley, John E.; Hoover, J.D.; Azimi, S.; Pfaff, L.W.; Bolsen, K.K. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1989)
    Interseeded grain sorghum and soybeans have been evaluated as a silage crop over a 3year period. In the first 2 years, maximum dry matter (DM) yields occurred at the late-dough stage of the grain sorghum, and interseeded ...
  • Sunvold, G.D.; Cochran, R.C.; Vanzant, E.S.; Brandyberry, S.D.; Hightshoe, R.B.; DelCurto, T. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1989)
    Intake of dormant, bluestem-range forage was increased by feeding steers supplements based on wheat middlings or soybean meal + sorghum grain, although the degree of influence on forage intake depended on type and level ...
  • Hays, T.D.; Brent, B.E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1989)
    Fecal thiaminase was measured on 152 feedlot cattle at three locations and on a variety of rations. No animals showed signs of polioencephalomalacia. Thiaminase activities ranged from 0.6 to 430 µmol thiamin destroyed ...
  • Schalles, R.R.; Kiracofe, G.H.; Wright, J.W. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1989)
    Thirty-one Polled Hereford and 29 Simmental cows were individually fed two energy levels for about the last 4 months before calving. Weight, condition score, backfat thickness, and reproduction were evaluated. No differences ...
  • Mintert, J.R.; Schroeder, Ted C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1989)
    One of the principal motivations for the introduction of cash settlement in feeder cattle futures contracts was to reduce basis risk. This study examined expected changes in hedging risk attributable to the adoption of ...
  • Cochran, R.C.; Vanzant, E.S.; Owensby, Clenton E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1989)
    Two levels of sorghum grain supplementation (2 or 4 lb/day) for•steers in an intensive-early stocking program tended to increase average daily gain in direct proportion to increasing supplement level (2.7 and 2.9 lb/day. ...
  • Binns, C.E.; Brazle, F.K.; Kuhl, G.L.; Simms, D.D.; Zoellner, K.O.; Corah, L.R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1989)
    Limit-feeding a high protein creep (36% CP) and a high energy creep (16% CP) was compared with no supplementation in a 61-day preweaning trial. Salt was used to limit daily creep intake to 1.5 to 2.0 lb per head. Calves ...
  • Schalles, R.R.; Zoellner, K.O.; Clarke, L.S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1989)
    Results of four simulated production systems indicated that high levels of milk produced calves that were heavier at weaning, primarily because of an increase in body fat. High levels of milk production, however, were a ...
