  • Smith, E.F.; Riley, Jack G.; Schalles, R.R.; Graber, Ronald W.; Owensby, Clenton E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1985)
    Eighty steers, primarily of British breeding, were allotted to one of four treatments and maintained on native bluestem pastures from January 11, 1984 to October 2, 1984. Steers received either chlortetracycline or Rumensin®, ...
  • Brethour, J.; Lee, B.; Riley, Jack G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1985)
    At least for the varieties we studied, hard red winter wheat was superior to soft red winter wheat in beef cattle rations. That contradicts the perception that feed wheats should be soft. The net energy values of Larned ...
  • Smith, E.F. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1985)
    A 1135 acre tract of native bluestem pasture 5 miles northeast of Manhattan was acquired by the Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station in 1946 for range research. Professor A.G. Picket was in charge of the beef cattle ...
  • Axe, D.; Bolsen, K.; Jacques, K.; Harmon, D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1985)
    Supplementing forage sorghum silage rations with sodium bicarbonate (NaHCO3 ) improved performance of growing cattle over the control supplement. However, neither NaHCO 3 nor sodium bentonite supplementation to corn ...
  • Smith, E.F.; Riley, Jack G.; Owensby, Clenton E.; Schalles, R.R.; Graber, Ronald W. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1985)
    Native bluestem pastures were grazed from May 8 to July 18, 1984 by steers with an average beginning weight of 553 lb, at stocking rates of 1.7, 1.5, and 1.25 acres per steer. Gains per acre were higher (P<.01) with ...
  • Bolsen, K.; Ilg, H.; Axe, D.; Smith, R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1985)
    Adding urea or limestone to forage sorghum silage increased lactic and acetic acids compared with untreated silage. Urea also elevated the ensiling temperature and increased the DM loss in the silo. Although calves fed ...
  • Lynch, N.M.; Kropf, Donald H.; Kastner, Curtis L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1985)
    Questionnaires were completed by 1750 Kansas grocery shoppers in selected Dillon's supermarkets to determine how product color and educational materials affected their purchase intent of vacuum-packaged ground beef. Half ...
  • Lynch, N.M.; Caul, J.F.; Kropf, Donald H.; Kastner, Curtis L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1985)
    Vacuum-packaged ground beef was compared to a conventionally packaged (polyvinyl chloride) product to determine consumer flavor and aroma preferences. In addition, flavor characteristics were described and quantified by ...
  • Smith, R.; Bolsen, K.; Ilg, H.; Hoover, J.; Dickerson, J. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1985)
    Three sorghum hybrid types were used to make six silages in the fall of 1983. Eight silage rations were compared using 160 steer calves in an 84-day growing trial. Using forage sorghum silage as a base (100), grain sorghum ...
