  • Harmon, D.L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1985)
    The effects of adding decoquinate (Deccox®) to the diet at 0, 0.5, or 5 mg per kg body weight were evaluated with diets of 30 and 80% concentrate. Decoquinate did not influence rumen or plasma metabolites, diet digestibility, ...
  • Simms, D.D.; Bolze, R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1985)
    In order to evaluate whether a 72 mg Ralgro® dosage would improve growth response over 36 mg, 260 suckling steer calves on tow Kansas ranches were assigned to five implant treatments. In trial 1, 72 mg Ralgro® increased ...
  • Middleton, C.; Brink, T.; Kiracofe, G.; Brethour, J.; Negus, R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1985)
    Conception rates and subsequent calving dates were compared between cows synchronized with Syncro-Mate-B® and inseminated by appointment and nonsynchronized cows bred by natural service. Average conception date was ...
  • Bolsen, K.; Ilg, H.; Smith, R.; Hoover, J.; Axe, D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1985)
    Cattle fed drought-stressed corn silage gained about 10% slower but were just as efficient as cattle fed irrigated corn silage. Because the irrigated corn out yielded the drought corn (17.4 VS. 8.2 tons per acre), the ...
  • Kuhl, G.; Ridley, R.; Francis, E.; Riat, L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1985)
    A field trial was conducted with 80 cow-calf pairs to evaluate the effect of deworming both cows and calves with fenbendazole, on cattle performance and internal parasite burden. Midseason and weaning weights of calves ...
  • Bolze, R.P.; Corah, L.R.; Fink, G.M.; Hoover, L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1985)
    Two trials were conducted to determine if precalving protein intake would influence calf birth weight and calving difficulty. In Trial 1 (1983), 38 spring-calving Simmental heifers and 49 cows were allotted to three, 112 ...
  • Brazle, F.K.; Blecha, Frank; Riley, Jack G.; McLaren, J.B. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1985)
    Bull and steer calves of mixed breed type were shipped from Newport, Tennessee to Manhattan, Kansas. Bull calves were castrated on arrival at Manhattan. Calves were classified into four breed-types as follows: (1) black, ...
  • Moyer, Joseph L.; Lomas, Lyle W. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1985)
    Mefluidide (Embark® ) delays maturity and suppresses seed head formation in grasses. Mefluidide treatment increased the crude protein content of fescue pasture and improved daily gain of grazing steers by 14.3% (.21 lb ...
  • Lee, B.; Stuart, R.; Perryman, K.; Ridenour, K. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1985)
    Ration formulation for stressed beef calves needs careful consideration, since low feed intakes, rumen dysfunction, and various other health and management problems may influence nutrient intakes and requirements. ...
  • 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)
