  • 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 ...
  • White, J.; Bolsen, K.K. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1989)
    Five mid- to late- season forage sorghum hybrids were used to plot the changes in silage in vitro dry matter disappearance (IVDMD) when their proportions of grain, leaf, sheath, and stalk were altered. The average IVDMD ...
  • Hightshoe, R.B.; Cochran, R.C.; Corah, L.R.; Harmon, D.L.; Vanzant, E.S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1989)
    Incorporation of rumen bypass fat into a supplement to be fed with low quality forage did not affect total dry matter digestibility or ruminal dry matter fill. Similarly, no difference in digestibility was observed among ...
  • DelCurto, T.; Cochran, R.C.; Corah, L.R.; Beharka, A.A.; Vanzant, E.S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1989)
    Fifteen ruminally and 12 esophageally cannulated steers were randomly assigned to receive low (LP), moderate (MP), and high (HP) crude protein (CP) supplements in a 23-day winter grazing trial designed to evaluate dormant ...
  • Cochran, R.C.; Binns, C.E.; Corah, L.R.; DelCurto, T.; Vanzant, E.S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1989)
    Limit creep-feeding a 36% protein supplement (avg. salt concentration = 7.9%) was compared with unlimited consumption of the same supplement without salt (full creep-feeding) and with no supplementation. Average daily ...
  • Laudert, S.B. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1989)
    Feedlot cattle from 1,687 pens totaling 290,183 head were evaluated at slaughter for the presence of liver flukes. Overall, 4.92% of the cattle were found to be infected. Only 15.2% of all pens of cattle were found to ...
  • Schalles, R.R.; Zoellner, K.O.; Dikeman, Michael E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1989)
    Fast-growth genotype steers placed on a high energy ration a month after weaning were compared to a slow-growth genotype on a growing ration for 155 days, followed by a finishing ration for 62 days. The fast-growth ...
  • Dubois, P.C.; Garcia, G.; Bolsen, K.K.; Harbers, L.H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1989)
    Calibrations for near-infrared reflectance spectroscopy (NIRS) analysis of sorghum silage and sheep feces samples were developed. with mixed success. For sorghum silage, the standard errors of calibration (SEC) and ...
  • Coffey, K.P.; Moyer, Joseph L.; Lomas, Lyle W. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1989)
    Early-intensive grazing of smooth bromegrass reduced animal gains but improved gain/acre. Morantel tartrate reduced fecal nematode egg counts but had no effect on animal performance at either stocking rate
  • Waggoner, A.W.; Brethour, J.R.; Dikeman, Michael E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1989)
    Eighty-seven 3/8 Simmental x 5/8 Hereford heifers calved at 2 years of age and were designated as Single-Calf-Heifers (SCH). Twenty-six heifer mates that did not calve were designated as 2-year-old open heifers (2-OH), ...
  • Schalles, R.R.; Kimbrough, S.; Zoellner, K.O.; Simms, D.D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1989)
    The weigh-suckle-weigh method was used to measure milk consumption by 265 calves from 159 Polled Hereford and Simmental cows over 3 years. Calves nursing Polled Hereford cows consumed an average of 11.2 lbs of milk per ...
  • Marston, T.T.; Simms, D.D.; Schalles, R.R.; Zoellner, K.O.; Clarke, L.S.; Fink, G.M. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1989)
    Spring-calving Angus (n=37) and Simmental (n=28) cows were used to evaluate the relationship between milk expected progeny difference (EPD), milk production, total milk energy, and weaning weight. There were positive ...
