    Salmonella dublin is a bacterium that can have devastating effects in dairy herds. It is most deadly with calves that range in age from 10 days to 5 months. Salmonella dublin is shed from carrier animals through feces, ...
  • Park, A.F.; Smith, J.F.; Rozell, Timothy G.; Stevenson, Jeffrey S.; Shirley, John E.; Scheffel, Michael V. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service., 1998)
    Representative MUN values can be obtained by testing a milk sample before milking, at AM or PM milking, or with an in-line siphon sampling device. MUN values obtained from homogenous milking strings are as accurate ...
  • Hollis, Larry C.; Smith, J.F.; Johnson, B.J; Kapil, S.; Mosier, Derek A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2005)
    One hundred and four, 5- to 10-month-old Holstein heifers and steers were blocked by age within gender and randomly assigned to treatments. Calves were vaccinated with 5- way modified-live respiratory viral ...
  • Francis, L.L; Kong, S.H.; Chambers, Delores H.; Jeon, I.J.; Simmons, S.R.; Schmidt, Karen A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2004)
    Many people seem to prefer to drink milk when it is cold. Research describing flavor and aftertaste of milk, and then correlating these traits with their chemical composition, has not previously been done. The ...
  • Dryden, Michael W.; Broce, A. B. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1991)
    In June 1991, an investigation was conducted of a severe flea infestation in 23 Holstein dairy calves in South Central Kansas. Inspection of the dairy revealed massive numbers of fleas on calves and in the barn where ...
  • Bolsen, K.K.; Hoover, J.D. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1985)
    Silage additives are receiving fairly widespread acceptance in the U.S. as management tools that are important for silage-making. Many products, which are added to the crop at the time of harvest or ensiling, are available ...
  • Bolsen, K.K.; Brent, B.E.; Siefers, M.K.; Uriarte, M.E.; Schmidt, T.E.; Pope, Ronald V. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2000)
    Four important silage management practices that are in the control of livestock producers and that are sometimes poorly implemented or overlooked entirely include: inoculating, packing, sealing, and managing the feedout face.
  • Kreikmeier, K.K.; Harmon, D.L.; Avery, T.B.; Brandt, Robert T., Jr. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1988)
    Three Holstein steers (930 lb) were surgically fitted with abomasal and ileal cannulae, portal and mesenteric venous catheters, and an elevated carotid artery and used to study small intestinal starch digestion. Water, ...
  • Rosario, B. Macias; McVay, L.; Aramouni, Fadi M.; Schmidt, Karen A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2003)
    Milk is widely considered one of the world’s most valuable foods. As a raw material, it is available in various forms, and is found in an ever-increasing variety of nutritional products. Milk is a complex biological fluid ...
  • Farney, Jaymelynn K.; Mamedova, Laman; Minton, J. Ernest; Coetzee, J. F.; Hollis, Larry C.; Bradford, Barry J. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2012)
    Inflammation has been proposed as a contributor to metabolic disorders in transition dairy cows. The purpose of this experiment was to determine if a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug, sodium salicylate (SS), benefits ...
  • Dunham, James R. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1992)
    Somatic Cell Count (SCC) affects productivity of a dairy herd and, thus, potential profit. Almost all SCC problems can be solved by management. The DHIA SCC program is very useful for evaluating the situation in a ...
  • Gladamez, C.A.; Shirley, John E.; Gallegos, A.J. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1990)
    Holstein cows in early lactation were utilized to evaluate the effects of supplementing concentrate diets of sorghum grain on milk production, milk composition, somatic cell count, and body condition. At 21 d postpartum, ...
  • Dawson, D.P.; Morrill, J.L.; Reddy, P.G.; Minocha, H.C. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1986)
    Studies were conducted to evaluate two comrnercl.al soy products and one experimental soy flour as protein sources in calf milk-replacers. Further tests were conducted to produce an improved product. None of the products ...
  • Dunham, James R. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1994)
    The Stage of Lactation Profile (SOLP) is a good estimate of the shape of the lactation curve for dairy herds. The SOLPs for herds with various milk production levels are somewhat similar. The rates of decline of ...
  • Cropp, B. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1994)
    Profitable dairying will not become any easier in the future. Farm level milk prices will continue to be volatile. The government will not provide additional price or income support to dairies. Long-run milk prices ...
  • Stevenson, Jeffrey S.; Thompson, K. E.; Kobayashi, Y. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1996)
    In Experiment 1, four programmed AIbreeding treatments were tested. The so-called OvSynch program, which requires no heat detection before a fixed-time insemination, decreased conception rates compared with a similar ...
  • El-Zarkouny, S. Z.; Cartmill, J. A.; Stevenson, Jeffrey S. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1999)
    Administering progesterone to lactating dairy cows has sometimes proven effective in increasing pregnancy rates. In this study, cows were treated with the Ovsynch protocol in addition to supplemental progesterone given ...
  • Stevenson, Jeffrey S.; Thompson, K. E.; Smith, J. F.; Hawkins, D. E. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1997)
    Two experiments were performed using the same treatments. All heifers received two injections of PGF[subscript]2alpha 14 days apart. Controls then were inseminated after detected estrus. Heifers assigned to the two ...
  • Kobayashi, Y.; Stevenson, Jeffrey S. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1995)
