    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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
