  • Bolsen, K.; Hinds, M.; Brethour, J. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1984)
    Numerous commercial silage additives, whose manufacturers claim will improve silage quality, are available to Kansas farmers and ranchers. We believe that these claims must ultimately be documented with farm-scale research. ...
  • Bolsen, K.; Ilg, H.; Hinds, M. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1984)
    In the first trial, calves fed Silo Guard II®-treated forage sorghum silage were 4.2% more efficient than those fed the control silage. Silo Guard II reduced the amount of heat produced during the ensiling process, and ...
  • Bolsen, K.; Ilg, H.; Hinds, M. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1984)
    Silo-Best lowered the ensiling temperature and increased the dry matter recovered from the silo by over 5 percentage units (82.3 vs. 77.3%). Calves fed the control silage gained faster and consumed more feed, but those fed ...
  • Riley, Jack G.; Pope, Ronald V. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1984)
    Finishing yearling beef steers were used to compare various implant programs in a 167-day trial. All implant programs increased daily gain ranging from 6.6 to 25.4% over non-implanted controls and improved feed efficiency ...
  • Bolsen, K.; Axe, D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1984)
    High-moisture forage sorghum silage was fed to 108 steer calves to measure the effect of sodium bicarbonate and feed flavor (Omniflavor®) on calf performance. Overall performance was similar for all three rations by the ...
  • Held, R.; Riley, Jack G.; Owensby, Clenton E.; Smith, E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1984)
    Native bluestem pastures were grazed from May 16 to July 14, 1983 by steers with an average beginning weight of 545lbs., at stocking rates of 1.82, 1.5, and 1.25 acres per steer. Daily gains for the high and low stocking ...
  • Simms, D.; Kuhl, G.; Brethour, J. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1984)
    In two trials conducted at the Fort Hays Experiment Station, symptoms of toxicity (hyperexcitability, circling, convulsions, death) were observed in several newborn calves (l to 14 days of age) nursing cows consuming ...
  • Janicki, B.; Bolsen, K.; Hinds, M.; Ilg, H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1984)
    Adding urea to forage sorghum greatly increased the ensiling temperature, produced a more rapid and extensive fermentation, and resulted in more shrink loss in the silo. Fermentrol®, an enzyme-inoculant additive, had ...
  • Dean Bark, L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1984)
    The 1983 weather in Kansas upset carefully laid plans and confounded the best management techniques. Yet the averages for 1982 and 1983 appear very similar. In Manhattan, the average temperatures were 54.04 F for 1982 and ...
