  • Bolsen, K.; Hinds, M.; Ilg, H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1984)
    Laboratory silos were used in three trials to evaluate sudangrass (slightly or moderately wilted) and high moisture corn silages, each receiving the following treatments: (1) control (no additive); (2) CULBAC® dry; (3) ...
  • Bolze, R.P.; Corah, L.R.; Pruitt, R.J. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1984)
    Three hundred and seventy four heifers from two Kansas ranches were used to determine if a single Ralgro implant given either at two months of age or at weaning would influence pelvic development and subsequent calving ...
  • Lomas, Lyle W. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1984)
    Feeding actaplanin in a loose mineral mix or twice weekly in a supplement significantly improve gains of grazing steers. The greatest improvement in performance was found with average daily actaplanin intakes of 255 or 257 ...
  • Laytimi, A.; Bolsen, K.; Janicki, B. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1984)
    Replicate, covered wheat straw (WS) stacks were treated with 1.5 or 3.0% anhydrous ammonia in three environmental chambers at 37, 68, or 95 F, for 23 days. Then digestibility was measured (wethers). Rations were 88% wheat ...
  • Lee., B.; Laudert, S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1984)
    Adding Bovatec, OTC, Bovalec plus OTC or Rumensin-Tylan to finishing steer diets did not significantly improve average daily gain in the 133 day feeding period, but did improve (P<.05) feed to gain ratios. The Rumensin-Tylan ...
  • Simms, D.; Willman, T.; Schalles, R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1984)
    Three trials were conducted to determine the effect of insecticide impregnated ear tags on horn fly counts and weight gain of suckling calves. In trials 1 and 2, cow calf pairs on two Kansas ranches were assigned to ...
  • Corah, L.; Riley, Jack G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1984)
    Lasalocid (Bovatec®) improved daily gain of replacement heifers by .20 lb per day and reduced the time to first heat in heifers fed on a lower level of energy, but had no significant affect in the higher energy group. ...
  • Lomas, Lyle W. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1984)
    Adding an oxytetracycline coating to Compudose implants did not change their effectiveness. Implanting with Compudose significantly increased gain of grazing steers an average of 17% compared to non-implanted controls.
  • Gray, D.G.; Corah, L.R.; Unruh, John A.; Dikeman, Michael E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1984)
    Repeated Ralgro® implantation of young bulls from birth to slaughter resulted in gains and carcass characteristics traits intermediate between non-implanted bulls and steers, and meat palatability traits similar to steers. ...
  • Smith, R.; Bolsen, K.; Ilg, H.; Hinds, M.; Dickerson, J.; Hoover, J.; Pope, Ronald V. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1984)
    Five silages produced in 1982 were evaluated in two growing trials using 96 steer calves. Forage sorghum silage (heading) was assigned a feeding value of 100. Based on comparative rates and efficiencies of gain, feeding ...
  • Kropf, Donald H.; Hunt, Melvin C.; Unruh, John A.; Kastner, Curtis L.; Dikeman, Michael E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1984)
    Low voltage electrical stimulation (ES) during bleeding and subsequent carcass chilling at 36 to 46° F resulted in 1) a more rapid pH decline 2) initial lighter red color, but more rapid discoloration during display 3) ...
  • Axe, J.B.; Hunt, Melvin C.; Kropf, Donald H.; Gray, D.G.; Kastner, Curtis L.; Dikeman, Michael E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1984)
    Our study evaluated the effects of low voltage electrical stimulation (ES) during bleeding and hot boning at 1 hr postmortem on loin eye (LE) and top round (TR) muscles. Possibly because of relatively slow initial chilling ...
  • Gray, D.G.; Unruh, John A.; Kastner, Curtis L.; Dikeman, Michael E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1984)
    Low voltage electrical stimulation of young bulls at 30 to 45 min after bleeding resulted in a lower muscle pH, higher marbling score, lighter cherry red color and reduced incidence of heat ring formation when compared to ...
  • Bolsen, K.; Ilg, H.; Hinds, M.; Milliken, George A.; Hoover, J. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1984)
    Eight concrete stave silos (10 x 50 ft) were used in two trials to evaluate rapid (24 to 36 hr) and delay (15 days) filling, each with our without 1177® silage inoculant. Corn silage was used in Trial 1; forage sorghum in ...
  • Simms, D.; Corah, L.; Kuhl, G.; Schalles, R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1984)
    Bull calves on nine Kansas ranches were either castrated and implanted with Ralgro, left intact and not implanted, or left intact and implanted with Ralgro, with performance evaluated through slaughter. Bulls produced ...
  • Boyles, S.; Riley, Jack G.; Pope, Ronald V. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1984)
    Straightbred Angus steers gained .21 lb/day faster than Brahman x Angus steers during a 184-day winter feeding trial. Angus steers had a higher yield grade. more fat thickness at 12th rib, and graded 90% Choice. Brahman ...
  • Young, B.; Smith, R.; Bolsen, K.; Ilg, H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1984)
    Dry rolled corn, ensiled high moisture corn, and high moisture corn that was rolled and ensiled with urea or left whole and ensiled with urea were compared in two cattle trials. Dry corn gave the poorest cattle performance; ...
  • Laudert, S.; Kuhl, G.; Walker, M. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1984)
    A one hundred and forty day field trial was conducted to evaluate the relative performance of steers implanted with Compudose, Ralgro and Synovex-S. Daily gains of cattle receiving a single initial implant were increased ...
  • Lambert, C.; Simms, D.; Schalles, B.; Corah, L.; Kuhl, G.; Sands, M. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1984)
    Spring born steer calves, weaned and delivered to custom feedlots by Kansas producers, were fed to slaughter weight. Gain and carcass information was gathered on over 5,000 head fed in 53 separate tests since the fall ...
  • Axe, D.; Spire, M.; Riley, Jack G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1984)
    Three medication programs for newly purchased feeder calves were compared and found to be similar in effectiveness. There was considerable variation in cost between the three medication programs which indicates a potential ...
