  • Bolsen, K.; Ilg, H.; Kirch, B.; Laytimi, A.; Lomas, Lyle W. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-12-03)
    Whole-plant corn silages were treated with USO3M or Silo-Best Soluble® in one trial and with Garst M-74® in a second trial. In Trial 1 all three silages were well preserved and moderately stable in the air. USO3M silage ...

    We conducted two studies in response to a severe problem with ground beef color encountered by beef fabricators and retailers. We concluded that: (1) Loss of muscle chemical-reducing capability upon grinding, with subsequent ...

    Homozygous yellow endosperm grain sorghum had no advantage in feeding value over heterozygous yellow endosperm hybrids (P>.05). A heterozygous yellow endosperm hybrid, Funk's 550, had larger kernels (P<.001) and when dry ...
  • Laudert, S.B. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-12-01)
    Feedlot heifers implanted once with either Compudose® or Synovex-H® performed similarly, with daily gains of 3.16 vs 3.27 lbs, respectively. Compudose retention in the ear was 97.5%. Implant site abscess rate was 2.5% for ...
  • Laudert, S.B.; Lee, R.W. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-12-01)
    Three field trials were conducted with finishing yearling steers to compare the performance of cattle receiving Compudose® or Ralgro®/Synovex-S® and Synovex-S®/Synovex-S® reimplant combinations. No differences were found ...
  • Whipple, G.; Axe, J.B.; Goll, S.; Kastner, Curtis L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-12-01)
    An enzyme digestion technique was developed using a proteolytic enzyme concentrate to quantitate connective tissue particles in ground beef samples, which had been formulated to contain various amounts of connective ...
  • Cochran, R.C.; Corah, L.R.; Jacques, K.A.; Avery, T.B.; Zoellner, K.O.; Higginbotham, J.F. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-12-03)
    Various levels of lasalocid (Bovatec®) added to a protein supplement did not improve weight or condition change of beef cows grazing poor quality winter pasture. Similarly, calf birth weight and most forage utilization ...
  • Bolsen, K.; Ilg, H.; Laytimi, A.; Hart, R.; Chain, V.; Nuzback, L.; Fung, Daniel Y. C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-12-03)
    Fourteen commercial inoculants were evaluated in seven trials using alfalfa, corn, forage sorghum, and triticale silages. Microbial profiles of the inoculants and of the crops differed widely. Viable lactic acid bacteria ...
  • Bolsen, K. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-12-03)
    The inoculants, BioPower®, increased the rate and efficiency of ensiling in Acco Paymaster 351 forage sorghum regardless of storage temperature. The untreated, 60 F silage fermentated slower and had higher pH, lower ...
  • Brazle, F.; Kuhl, Gerry L.; Corah, L.; Zoellner, K. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-12-03)
    Two limited-creep feeding trials were conducted with spring-born, suckling calves on native grass. The high-energy creep rations containing an ionophore were fed during the last 63 or 85 days before weaning in the two ...
  • Hamma, S.; Kirch, B.; Downey, B.; White, J.; Bolsen, K. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-12-03)
    In the last 2 years, three trials were conducted to determine the influence of hybrid and stage of maturity at harvest on silage yield, composition, and nutritive value for 15 forage and nine grain sorghum hybrids. ...
  • Kuhl, Gerry L.; Goehring, T.; Ritter, B.; Laudert, S.; McCully, W. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-12-03)
    Several spaying and ovarian autografting methods were tested in three field trials with 658 grazing heifers. None of the techniques examined were found to have a beneficial effect on heifer gains compared to intact ...
  • Turlington, H.; Allee, G.; Riley, Jack G.; Pope, Ronald V. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-12-01)
    Grain sorghum officially graded as 39% damaged (sprouted) with 10% broken kernels or foreign material was fed to beef steers, growing swine, and broilers to compare its feeding value to that of normal grain sorghum. ...
  • Brazle, F.; Kuhl, Gerry L.; Harmon, D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-12-03)
    Seven diets were fed for 27 days to newly arrived heifers to evaluate their impact on stocker gains during the receiving and pasture periods. The diets were as follows: soybean hulls plus soybean meal; suncured alfalfa ...
  • DelCurto, T.; Cochran, R.C.; Jacques, K.A.; Harmon, D.L.; Towne, G.; Avery, T.B.; Vanzant, E.S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-12-03)
    Feeding a low crude protein (12%) supplement depressed dormant bluestem range-grass fiber digestibility, whereas moderate (27%) and high (41 %) protein supplementation maintained forage digestibility and encouraged intake. ...
  • Brazle, F.; Kuhl, Gerry L.; Harmon, D.; Laudert, S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-12-03)
    Supplementing heifers in an intensive-early grazing program with Terramycin ® or Bovatec ® in free-choice, mineral-soybean meal mixtures resulted in Comparable cattle performance. Both feed additive mixtures increased ...
  • Goehring, T.; Corah, L.; Higgins, James J. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-12-01)
    Fall-calving, first-calf heifers (136 head) were fed TDN levels approximating 85% or 100% of NRC recommendations, with or without 200 mg/hd/day lasalocid. Those fed the recommended diet gained more weight from 130 days ...
  • Perry, R.C.; Boyd, G.W.; Goehring, T.B.; Corah, L.R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-12-01)
