  • Esmail, S.H.M.; Bolsen, K.; Azimi, S.; Shirley, John E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1988)
    Interseeded grain sorghum and soybeans were harvested at late-boot, milk, and late-dough maturity stages of the sorghum (62, 77, and 91 days post-planting, respectively). Maximum dry matter yield occurred at the late-dough ...
  • Houghton, P.L.; Corah, L.R.; Goehring, T.B. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1988)
    When fed MGA (0.5 mg.hd/day) for 14 days, followed by a prostaglandin injection 17 days later, a total of 736 out of 1112 heifers at 11 locations expressed signs of estrus within 5 days following the PG injection for a ...

  • Lechtenberg, K.F.; Avery, T.B.; Nagaraja, T. G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1988)
    We have demonstrated that ultrasonography can be used to visualize liver abscess in live cattle. We have also developed a nonsurgical method of catheterizing the bovine portal vein and experimentally inducing liver ...
  • Schroeder, Ted C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1988)
    Analysis of weekly retail, wholesale, and farm beef price data indicated that a time lag exists between price changes at the various market levels. Farm-level slaughter cattle price changes typically lead wholesale beef ...
  • Coffey, K.P.; Lomas, Lyle W. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1988)
    Forty-eight Charolais crossbred steers were fed sprouted or nonsprouted milo for 139 days in a finishing study. Steers fed sprouted milo (51% sprout damage, 60 lb. per bu.) were 28 lb. heavier (P<.10) and gained 8.4% ...
  • Kreikemeier, K.K.; Harmon, D.L.; Avery, T.B.; Brandt, Robert T., Jr. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1988)
    Glucose infused into the abomasum of Holstein steers resulted in higher arterial glucose concentrations and increased net glucose absorption than either starch or dextrin infusions. Increasing infusion rates above 20 ...
  • Mock, D.E.; Schalles, R.R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1988)
    Dustacators (combination mineral feeders and livestock dusting devices) were used for four beef herds at Kansas State University in 1985. Loose mineral was supplied in all four Dustacator tubs, which were adjusted to low ...
  • Laudert, S.B. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1988)
    Nearly 83,000 heifers were observed at slaughter during 1986 and 1987 to determine their reproductive status. Slightly less than 4 percent were found to be pregnant. Highest incidences of pregnancy were found during the ...
  • Houghton, P.; Brazle, F.; Kuhl, G.; Schalles, B.; Zoellner, K. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1988)
    Two limited-creep feeding trials were conducted in Northwest and Southeast Kansas using spring-born, suckling calves to evaluate the effect of available forage supply on creep-fed calf performance. Energy vs. protein ...
  • Brazle, F.; Whittier, J. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1988)
    Four hundred and ten cow-calf pairs were allotted to tall fescue pastures containing 40, 45, or 70% endophyte fungus infestation. One half of the calves in each pasture were implanted with Ralgro® initially and reimplanted ...
  • Beharka, A.; Cochran, B.; Harmon, D.; Avery, T. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1988)
    Feed intake during the final trimester of gestation did not appear to vary significantly until 2 weeks before calving, after which it decreased dramatically. Measurements during two periods in the final trimester suggested ...
  • Vanzant, E.S.; Cochran, R.C.; Beharka, A.A.; Avery, T.B. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1988)
    Supplementation of early summer bluestem with low levels of corn, wheat, or sorghum grain had no effect on forage intake, forage digestibility, or total dry matter digestibility in beef steers, compared with a regimen ...
  • DelCurto, T.; Cochran, B.; Corah, L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1988)
    Three milo/soybean meal mixtures representing three supplemental crude protein concentrations (13, 26, and 39%) were evaluated in terms of pregnant beef cow performance. Cow weight and body condition changes responded ...
  • DelCurto, T.; Cochran, B.; Avery, T.; Beharka, A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1988)
    Two trials were conducted to evaluate effects of protein versus energy level in milo/soybean meal supplements on intake and utilization of dormant, bluestem forage. Forage dry matter intake and utilization of dormant ...
  • Cochran, B.; Vanzant, E.; Avery, T.; Riley, Jack G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1988)
    Steers managed within an intensive-early stocking program and receiving Rumensin® via a slow-release bolus tended to have higher average daily gains than steers not receiving Rumensin. However, forage organic matter ...
  • Bolsen, K.; Kireh, B.; Laytimi, A.; Hoover, J.; Ilg, H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1988)
    Whole-plant corn silages were treated with Ecosyl® in one trial and Biomate4ll or Silagest® in a second trial. In both trials, the silages were well preserved and moderately stable in air during the feed-out period. ...
  • Schroeder, Ted C.; Kuhl, G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1988)
    A survey of Kansas custom cattle feedlots was conducted in the fall of 1987. This paper summarizes the survey and discusses some of the custom cattle feeding services and charges being offered.
  • Cochran, B.; Kuhl, G.; DelCurto, T.; Corah, L.; Vanzant, E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1988)
    Limit-feeding a soybean meal/milo creep supplement (1696 crude protein, average 3.096 salt) was compared with ad libitum consumption of the same supplement without salt or with no supplementation. Little difference was ...
  • Vanzant, E.; Cochran, B.; Corah, L.; Zoellner, K. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1988)
    Supplementing developing heifers in the morning was compared with supplementation at sundown. No difference was evident among treatments in average daily gain, distance traveled, or time spent grazing.
