    The availability of oxalate and non-oxalate calcium in alfalfa was determined using a chick assay. Oxalate-bound calcium was found to contribute only 16% as much influence as nonoxalate calcium. The nonoxalate calcium ...
  • Miller, W.F.; Titgemeyer, Evan C.; Park, A.F.; Burgos, M.V.; Hammond, A.K.; Scheffel, Michael V.; Shirley, John E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2003)
    We evaluated the impact on performance of top dressing a based total mixed ration (TMR) with long-stem alfalfa hay with or without additional dry-rolled corn to the lactating cow diet during the first 5 days postpartum. ...
  • Sullivan, M.L.; Bradford, Barry J. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010)
    Wet corn gluten feed (WCGF) was included in 4 diets at 0, 11, 23, and 34% of diet dry matter. Alfalfa hay was used to maintain at least 10% of particles ≥ 0.71 inches in length (the top screen of the Penn State Particle ...
  • Holthaus, D.L.; Young, Matthew A.; Pfaff, L.; Brent, B.E.; Boyer, John E.; Bolsen, K.K. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1994)
    Alfalfa silages were made in pilot- and farm-scale silos, and five sealing treatments were compared. After 90 days, sealing dramatically reduced dry matter (DM) losses at the 5 and 10 inch depths in the farm silos and ...
  • Nagaraja, T. G.; Katz, M.P.; Fina, L.R. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1985)
    Monensin at 300 mg and 450 mg per 1000 lbs body weight reduced the severity of alfalfa pasture bloat by 41.2 and 73.1 %, respectively. Lasalocid at the same levels reduced the bloat score by 25.5 and 12.4%. The difference ...
