  • Simms, D.D.; Lee, R.W.; Laudert, S.B.; Higgins, James J. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1986)
    One hundred and ninety-five crossbred steers were used to compare lifetime implant strategies and study the effects of implanting during the suckling period on performance in the growing and finishing periods. There were ...
  • Bolsen, K.; Smith, R.; Ilg, H.; Fung, Daniel Y. C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1986)
    An experimental microbial inoculant dramatically increased the speed of pH drop and rate and amount of lactic acid production in alfalfa at both 60 and 90 F storage temperatures. In two trials with forage sorghums, the ...
  • Corah, L.R.; Brazle, F.K. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1986)
    Even though an average daily Rumensin® consumption of over 100 mg per was achieved in all three trials, it did not significantly improve daily gains of steers or heifers grazing late-season native range. Late-season ...
  • Laudert, S.; Sauerwein, C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1986)
    An experimental implant containing Beta-estradiol increased (P<.05) daily gain of grazing yearling steers by 15.5% compared to controls. Compudose implants increased (P<.01) daily gain by 13.5%. There was no gain difference ...
  • Axe, D.; Bolsen, K.; Lee, R.; Herron, George M. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1986)
    Wheat and high moisture sorghum grain were fed singly and in two combinations in a 121-day feedlot trial at the Garden City Branch Experiment Station. Feed efficiency improved with increasing proportions of wheat in ...
  • Kriese, L.A.; Schalles, R.R.; Lomas, Lyle W. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1986)
    Heterosis estimates were determined for gestation length, birth weight, and yearling weight using a two-breed rotational crossbreeding system with Angus and Simmental cattle. Heterosis for gestation length was -.3%; birth ...
  • Harbers, L.H.; Schweitzer, R.A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1986)
    Upper and lower portions of stem from three sorghum cultivars were ensiled and then subjected to rumen fermentation. The lower stems were readily digested, whereas the upper sections were poorly utilized. Several microscopic ...
  • Harmon, D.L.; Avery, T.B. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1986)
    Adding ionophores to a high grain diet increased glucose absorption and decreased the transport of urea back into the gut. These changes are consistent with the antibiotic effects of these compounds. Decreased microbial ...
  • Schalles, R.R.; Zoellner, K.O.; Olson, W. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1986)
    Bulls placed in Kansas Bull Tests have increased in weight, gain, frame, and scrotal circumference, while decreasing in fat thickness over the past 15 years. Bull buyers have been willing to pay for increased performance, ...
  • Bark, L.D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1986)
    The charts that follow show graphically the daily weather in Manhattan during the last 2 years. Each chart has three smooth curves to represent the average weather conditions at Manhattan based on 70 years of records ...
  • Flores, H.A.; Kropf, Donald H.; Hunt, Melvin C.; Kastner, Curtis L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1986)
    Restructured, pre-cooked roasts were prepared from four hot-boned USDA Utility grade cow carcasses. Before forming the roasts, meat was either blade tenderized, manually trimmed of large connective tissue deposits, or ...
  • Patterson, D.J.; Corah, L.R.; Simms, D.D.; Brethour, J.R.; Negus, W.R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1986)
    Heifer development as effected by nutrition was evaluated in 148 F Angus x Hereford (A x H) and 148 F Brahman x Hereford (B x H) heifers. Heifers within each breed cross were assigned to one of two energy levels and weight ...
  • Simms, D.D.; Boyd, G.; Corah, L.R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1986)
    An in-depth survey of reproductive performance and management practice was conducted on 160 cow/calf operations in Northwest Kansas.
  • Wright, J.M.; Kiracofe, G.H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1986)
    Ninety-one pregnant, crossbred Angus heifers aborted after receiving an injection of a prostaglandin analog at an average of 50, 75, 100, or 122 days of gestation. Weight change in the first 3 weeks after abortion and ...
  • Smith, R.; Bolsen, K.; Hoover, J. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1986)
    Four trails were conducted to determine the effects of processing (rolling before feeding, with rolls set to break 95% of the kernels) and stage of maturity at harvest on the nutritive value of whole-crop grain sorghum ...
