  • 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.
  • Coffey, K.; Brazle, F. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1988)
    Two experiments were conducted to evaluate the performance of stocker calves grazing high-endophyte fescue (68 to 70%) and offered oxytetracycline in a free-choice mineral supplement. In Experiment 1, 24 yearling crossbred ...
  • White, J.; Bolsen, K.; Kirch, B. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1988)
    Results from two trials evaluating 11 forage sorghums as silage crops indicated that silage quality traits of voluntary intake, digestibility, and crude protein content were linearly associated with the agronomic ...
  • White, J.; Bolsen, K.; Kirch, B.; Pfaff, L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1988)
    Eighty forage sorghum cultivars were compared in 1986 for agronomic and silage quality traits. Silage yield ranged from 5.3 to 10.0 tons (t) of dry matter (DM) per acre (mean, 7.4 t); grain yield, from 13 to 113 bushels ...
  • Goldy, G.; Olsen, W.; Riley, Jack G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1988)
    A wide range in serum cholesterol concentrations was observed within and between all four breeds of yearling bulls studied. The significance of this observation is unknown at this time. Addition research is necessary to ...
  • Cochran, R.; Smith, E.F.; Owensby, Clenton E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1988)
    Based on a six-year study, stocking at 2.5x and 3.0x normal season-long rates for the first half of the growing season with no grazing during the latter half results in individual steer gains that are equal to those under ...
  • Dubois, P.C.; Harbers, L.H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1988)
    Over 16 years ago, an analytical instrument was developed that could rapidly determine the concentration of organic compounds from the spectra produced by the bonding between certain molecules. The instrument is based on ...
  • Kirch, B.; Hamma, S.; Bolsen, K.; Hoover, J.; Riley, Jack G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1988)
    Two trials were conducted to determine the feeding value of whole-plant forage sorghum, grain sorghum, and corn silages, with and without 25% rolled grain sorghum added to the ration. In general, growing cattle fed corn ...
