    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 ...

    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 ...
