  • Menzies, C.S.; Ahlschwede, G.; Wheat, J.D.; Mackintosh, D.L.; Kropf, Donald H. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-04-28)
    Data was collected on 91 lambs of known breeding born during the fall, 1963. The lambs were from ewes in the original fine-wool flock and were sired by 10 performance-tested Hampshire rams. This was the ewes fifth lamb crop.
  • Menzies, C.S.; Wheat, J.D.; Mackintosh, D.L.; Kropf, Donald H. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-04-28)
    Data were collected on 94 lambs of known breeding born the fall of 1962. The lams were from ewes in the original fine-wool flock sired by eight unrelated Suffolk yearling rams. This was the ewes fourth lam crop.

Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2011-03-30)
    With increasing feed costs, producers may be able to utilize forage resources to help cattle gain weight before entering a high-concentrate finishing phase. In theory, heavy stocker cattle need less time on feed before ...
  • Tuma, H.J.; Kropf, Donald H.; Mackintosh, D.L.; Alschwede, G.A. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-04-28)
    Carcass measurement, muscle quality, and palatability data have been collected on 88 paternal half-sib Angus steers. At weaning they were subdivided into one of the 11 nutritional and management regimes shown in Table ...
