  • Laudert, S.B.; Davis, G.V. Jr. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-12-14)
    Finishing yearling steers reimplanted with Synovex-S or Ralgro gained 6.8 and 4.2% faster, respectively, than those implanted with Compudose. However, feed efficiency was not significantly different among treatments. ...
  • Simm, D.; Kuhl, Gerry L.; Schalles, R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-12-14)
    Four field trials were conducted to compare Ralgro, Synovex-S and Compudose implants for growing steer calves. All implant programs significantly increased (P<.01) average daily gain. Reimplanting with Ralgro or Synovex-S ...
  • Simms, D.D.; Schalles, R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-12-14)
    The comparative growth-promoting value of Compudose, Ralgro, Ralgro + Ralgro reimplant, and Synovex-C + Synovex-C reimplant was evaluated on five Kansas ranches with 674 suckling steer calves in seven trials conducted ...
  • Lee, B.; Laudert, S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-12-14)
    Synovex-S and STEER-oid were compared in a 133-day finishing trial to evaluate their effects on growth and carcass traits of yearling steers. No significant differences in average daily gain, feed intake, feed to gain ...
  • Pelton, C.D.; Allen, Dell M.; Corah, L.R.; Milliken, George A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-12-14)
    Our research showed that implanting bulls from birth to slaughter made steaks from bulls as acceptable as steers to consumer panels. Implanting bulls from weaning to slaughter resulted in the least desirable consumer panel ...
  • Bolsen, K.; Hinds, M.; Ilg, H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-12-14)
    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, 2010-12-14)
    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, 2010-12-14)
    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, 2010-12-14)
    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, 2010-12-14)
    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, 2010-12-14)
    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, 2010-12-14)
    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, 2010-12-14)
    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, 2010-12-14)
    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, 2010-12-14)
    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, 2010-12-14)
    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, 2010-12-14)
    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, 2010-12-14)
    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, 2010-12-14)
    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 ...
