    Eight primiparous and nine multiparous Holstein cows were used in a randomized block design to determine the effect of wet corn gluten feed in the diet during the last 21 days of gestation on dry matter intake and early ...
  • Smith, J.F.; Harner, Joseph P.; Brouk, Michael J. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2000)
    Heat stress occurs when a dairy cow’s internal heat load is greater than her capacity to lose unwanted heat to the environment. Effects of heat stress include: increased respiration rate, increased water intake, ...
  • Strahm, T.D.; Harner, Joseph P.; Key, David V.; Murphy, James P. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2000)
    Nine primar,y lagoons and solids storage basins were sampled on Kansas dairies using flush systems. These samples were analyzed for nutrient content of wastewater and sand manure. The manure moisture content in ...

    Mastitis is the most costly health concern in the dairy industry today. Annual losses have been estimated at $180 to 185 per cow. Based on this figure, annual losses for Kansas producers may exceed $15 million. Nationally, ...
  • DeFrain, J.M.; Shirley, John E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2000)
    The efficiency of feedstuff utilization by ruminal microorganisms and the cow’s genetic ability to convert feed nutrients into milk and milk components are major factors that influence the profitability of a dairy herd. ...

    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.
  • Schmidt, D.G.; Gnad, D.P.; Sargeant, J.M.; Shirley, John E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2000)
    Total blood protein measured in calves between 1 and 7 days of age is a good indicator of the sufficiency of colostral intake and level of immunity passed to the calf. This measurement can be used to improve calf management ...
