  • Murphy, P.; Pope, Ronald V.; Nichols, David A.; Riley, Jack G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1985)
    When average outside air temperature was about 40 F, water temperatures of 40, 60, Of' 80 F had little effect on water intakes of yearling steers and heifers. In addition, there were no significant differences in average ...
  • Bolsen, K.; Hinds, M.; Ilg, H.; Hoover, J. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1985)
    Eight whole-plant corn silages were evaluated using laboratory silos. Treatments were: 1) control (no additive); 2) H/M Inoculant applied to the fresh crop at the forage harvester (H/M-field); and 3) H/M Inoculant applied ...
  • Dickerson, J.; Smith, R.; Bolsen, K.; Walter, T. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1985)
    Thirteen sorghum hybrids chosen to represent a range of sorghum types were evaluated in two separate trials. Each was harvested at three stages of grain development: milk to early-dough, late-dough, and hard-grain. Among ...
  • Brazle, F.K.; Blecha, Frank; McLaren, J.B.; Riley, Jack G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1985)
    We purchased 264 calves (125 bulls and 139 steers) in Tennessee and transported them to Kansas to evaluate the effects of levamisole injections and potassium supplementation, before and after transit, and feedlot receiving ...
  • Gray, D.G.; Unruh, John A.; Dikeman, Michael E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1985)
    Implanting young bulls with Ralgro® from birth to slaughter maintained performance similar to nonimplanted bulls, increased quality grade and carcass fatness, delayed carcass masculinity development, decreased hide weight ...
  • Gray, D.G.; Unruh, John A.; Dikeman, Michael E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1985)
    Implanting bulls with Ralgro® from birth to slaughter resulted in performance similar to that of nonimplanted bulls. However, implanted bulls were less masculine, had smaller scrotal circumference up to 16 months of age, ...
  • Schalles, R.R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1985)
    Frame score is a convenient way of describing the skeletal size of cattle. With adequate height growth curves most animals should maintain the same frame score throughout their life, while their actual height increases ...
  • Brink, J.T.; Middleton, C.D.; Kiracofe, G.H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1985)
    In five trials during 1983 and 1984, 238 cows and 54 heifers were synchronized with Syncro-Mate-B® and artificially inseminated 48 hours after implant removal. The conception rate was 42.5% in cows that were cycling and ...
  • Heidker, J.; Bolsen, K.; Hinds, M.; Ilg, H.; Janicki, B.; Young, B. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1985)
    High moisture corn harvested at 18 and 26% moisture, rolled, treated with 0, .75, 1.5, or 2.25% urea (DM basis), and ensiled was evaluated for fermentation rate, chemical composition, and aerobic stability. Adding urea ...
  • Laudert, S.; Corah, L.; Nelson, R.; Sauerwein, C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1985)
    Three field trials were conducted with grazing yearling steers to compare Compudose® and Ralgro® implants. Compudose® and Ralgro® implants. Compudose®-implanted steers gained faster (P<.05) than controls. Ralgro® improved ...
  • Dean Bark, L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1985)
    The charts of the daily weather drawn by the KSU computer indicate what occurred in the past two years. The three smooth curves in each diagram represent the average conditions at Manhattan based on 70 years of records ...
  • 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 ...
