  • Schmidt, Karen A.; Stupar, J.; Shirley, John E.; Adapa, S.; Sukup, D. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1996)
    The value of titratable acidity (TA) as an indicator of raw milk quality has been challenged recently, because milk is refrigerated within minutes after it leaves the cow until it reaches the consumer. Also, high milk ...
  • Van Metre, D.C.; St. Jean, G.; Vestweber, J. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1996)
    Cattle that become recumbent (unable to get up) as the result of calving difficulty, low blood calcium, traumatic injuries, or other disorders are prone to develop subsequent pressure damage of muscles, nerves, and ...
  • Cropp, Bob (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1996)
    The two new milk futures contracts offer dairy farmers and other buyers and sellers of milk and dairy products additional opportunities to manage price risk in an increasingly volatile milk price environment. The ...
  • Lamb, G.C.; Hoffman, D.P.; Kobayashi, Y.; Stevenson, Jeffrey S. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1996)
    The objective of this study was to examine changes in ovarian steroids in relation to the onset of first standing estrus detected by pressure-sensitive rump-mounted devices (ABS HeatWatch® [HW]). Twenty Holstein ...
  • Cropp, Bob (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1996)
    Milk pricing will continue to change. Clearly, the dairy industry will continue the trend toward MCP. The federal dairy price support program will terminate at the end of 1999. Changes will occur in federal order pricing. ...
  • Stokka, Gerald L.; Smith, J.F.; Dunham, J.R.; Van Anne, T. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1996)
    Foot problems are major concerns for dairies, and care should be taken to avoid promoting them. Preventive measures, with the aid of a veterinarian, must be followed if the problem is expected to be controlled. ...
  • Dunham, J.R. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1996)
    Milk urea nitrogen (MUN) analyses can be used to evaluate the nutritional status of dairy herds and for fine tuning the feeding program. MUN values >18 mg/100 ml indicate that dietary protein is being wasted and feed ...
  • Scheffel, Michael V.; Scoby, R.K.; Shirley, John E. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1996)
    Sixty Holstein cows averaging 65 days in milk at the initiation of a 13-week study were used to evaluate three alfalfa haylages. Haylages were treated at the time of ensilation with either a Pioneer experimental ...
  • Greenwood, R.H.; Morrill, J.L; Schwenke, J.R. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1996)
    Newborn Holstein calves were used to investigate responses to supplemental antioxidants provided in daily milk allotments. Treated calves assigned to receive daily 100 IU of d-alpha tocopherol (vitamin E), 5 mg ...
  • Smith, J.F. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1996)
    Construction of a new milking center or remodeling existing milking parlors is a very important decision that can dramatically affect the labor efficiency and profitability of a dairy. Dairy producers should set ...
  • Stokka, Gerald L.; Smith, J.F.; Dunham, J.R.; Van Anne, T. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1996)
    Always consult your veterinarian when making vaccination decisions. The most common errors are failing to give booster immunizations and doing so at the incorrect time. Animal comfort is a greater determinant of production ...

    Bovine leukosis virus (BLV) is a cancerous condition of tissues in which lymph nodes and lymphocytes are affected. Infected cattle may be identified by testing blood sera for BLV antibodies using the agar gel ...
  • 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 ...
  • Dunham, J.R. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1996)
    High-producing dairy herds can consistently average a somatic cell count (SCC) <200,000. Herds with consistently higher averages can decrease SCC and realize higher profits. The SCC report discloses the pitfalls that ...
