  • Ritter, B.; Bauernfeind, B. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-12-01)
    A 2-year-old, irriagated alfalfa field was left untreated or treated with ¼ lb, ½ lb, or 1 lb of Furadan® per acre on April 5, 1986. Alfalfa weevil populations were determined 2,9,16 and 23 days post-spraying. Forage samples ...
  • Corah, L.; Pope, Ronald V. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-11-22)
    The addition of Cobactin to feedlot rations had no significant effect on average daily gain or feed efficiency, but did improve quality grade of steers fed for 110 days.
  • Bolsen, K.; Laytimi, A.; Hart, R.; Nuzback, L.; Niroomand, F.; Leipold, L.; Ilg, H (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-11-22)
    Fourteen commercial silage inoculants were evaluated in 32 trials using nine different crop species harvested in 1987 and ensiled in PVC laboratory silos. Microorganism profiles of the crops showed high numbers of lactic ...
  • Corah, L.R.; Brazle, F.K.; Boyd, G.W.; Goehring, T. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-11-22)
    Two field trials were conducted to evaluate various dosage levels of Depo-MGA® for preventing pregnancy in grazing heifers. Injecting Depo-formulated MGA subcutaneously in the ear at dosages of 60, 90 or 120 mg effectively ...
  • Bolsen, K.; Laytimi, A.; Nuzback, L.; Hart, R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-11-22)
    The inoculants, TriLac ®and Ecosyl® increased the rate and efficiency of the ensiling process in both high (50%) and low (32.5%) dry matter alfalfa, regardless of temperature. In both alfalfa trials, the inoculated silages ...
  • Laytimi, A.; Bolsen, K.; Schurhammer, J.; Kirch, B. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-12-01)
    Enzyme and inoculant additives produced more efficiently preserved wheat and forage sorghum silages and improved their feeding value. In general, treated silages had lower pH, acetic acid, and ammonia-nitrogen values and ...
  • Brandt, Robert T., Jr. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-11-22)
    Two trials that utilized 356 steers were conducted to evaluate the effects of various fat sources (3.596 of ration dry matter) on performance and carcass traits of finishing cattle fed flaked milo diets. In trial 1, ...
  • Goldy, G.; Riley, Jack G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-11-22)
    The inclusion of brewer's grains at 20% of the ration dry matter increased dry matter intake, resulting in poorer feed efficiency. Brewer's grain appeared to increase serum cholesterol. Serum cholesterol increased as ...
  • Perry, R.C.; Corah, L.R.; Cochran, R.C.; Brethour, J.R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-11-06)
    The effect of hay quality on the onset of puberty and subsequent reproductive performance was evaluated in 51 3/4 Hereford x 1/4 Angus (HA) heifers and 47 3/4 Hereford x 1/4 Brahman (HB) heifers. Two qualities of alfalfa ...
  • Goldy, G.; Downey, B.; Bolsen, K.; Riley, Jack G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-11-22)
    Steers red high-concentrate limit-fed rations were more efficient during growing than steers fed silage plus grain at 25% of their dry matter (DM) intake, or silage only. The limit-fed cattle also tended to gain faster ...
  • Simms, D.; Kuhl, Gerry L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-11-12)
    Three limited-creep feeding trials were conducted with spring-born suckling calves on native grass. The 1696 crude protein, high energy creep feed containing Bovatec® was fed from mid-August to weaning in mid-October. ...
  • Brazle, F. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-11-12)
    Feeding supplements containing an antibiotic or ionophore improved stocker gains by .06 to .26 lb per head daily. A combination of Bovatec and Aureomycin in the mineral mixture improved (P<.08) steer gains over feeding ...
  • Brazle, F.; Mintert, J.; Schroeder, Ted C.; Grunewald, O. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-11-22)
    A survey of cow sales was conducted in the fall of 1986 and spring of 1987 at seven Kansas cattle auctions. Several factors significantly influenced cow prices, including health, estimated dressing percentage, lot size, ...
  • Brazle, F.; Mintert, J.; Schroeder, Ted C.; Grunewald, O. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-11-22)
    A survey of feeder cattle sales was conducted at seven Kansas cattle auctions during 1986 and 1987. A wide variety of physical characteristics was found to influence feeder cattle prices. The price impact resulting from ...
  • Brazle, F.K. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-11-12)
    Steers were either not implanted or implanted with 36 or 72 mg of Ralgro, then allowed to graze on both high and low endophyte fungus tall fescue pastures. Ralgro had a greater effect on improving gains of steers grazing ...
  • Neibarger, L.R.; Nagaraja, T. G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-11-22)
    Feeding Tetronasin reduced incidence of frothy bloat in cattle fed a high-grain diet. The effective dose was 0.25 mg/kg body weight when administered prior to the onset of frothy bloat. At 0.15 mg/kg body weight, the ...
  • Goll, S.J.; Hunt, Melvin C.; Kropf, Donald H.; Kastner, Curtis L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-11-22)
