    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 ...

    Angular limb deformity, observed in several breeds of cattle, results in a knock-kneed and splay-footed condition in the front legs. This study shows that angular limb deformity is a congenital structural defect, inherited ...
  • McGuire, W.J.; Kiracofe, G.H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1989)
    Syncro-Mate B® was capable of inducing estrous behavior in ovariectomized cows. Lengthening the norgestomet implant period from 9 to 18 days did not prevent estrus. The ability of Syncro-Mate B to induce estrous behavior ...
