  • Bolsen, K.; Laytimi, A.; Hart, R.; Nuzback, L.; Niroomand, F.; Leipold, L.; Ilg, H (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1988)
    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 ...
  • Bolsen, K.; Laytimi, A.; Nuzback, L.; Hart, R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1988)
    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, 1988)
    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 ...
  • Goldy, G.; Downey, B.; Bolsen, K.; Riley, Jack G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1988)
    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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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. ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • Azimi, S.; Bolsen, K.; Laytimi, A.; Esmail, S.H.M.; Hoover, J.; Ye, Q.K. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1988)
    Three trials were conducted to compare silage and hay yields and feeding values of winter cereal foraged harvested in the boot and dough stages of maturity. Included were triticale; common rye; Kanby barley; and Centurk, ...
