  • Katz, M.P.; Bartley, E.E.; Pressman, E.S.; Nagaraja, T. G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1982)
    Rumensin with or without Bloatguard was fed to rumen-fistulated cattle grazing lush alfalfa pasture. Although Rumensin alone or in combination with low doses of Bloatguard reduced bloat, it was not completely effective. Hence, ...
  • Riley, Jack G.; Pope, Ronald V. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1982)
    Combining Tylan with Rumensin dramatically reduced abscessed liver incidence, compared with that of steers fed a non-medicated control ration or Rumensin without Tylan. Only one steer out of 50 on the Rumensin plus Tylan ...
  • Simms, D.D.; Sprott, L.R.; Odde, Kenneth G.; Corah, L.R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1982)
    In 22 field trials involving 1,692 cattle, we evaluated Lutalyse as an estrus-synchronization agent for both natural mating and artificial insemination. Only 52.7% of the females in all 22 trials were cycling at the start ...
  • Sands, M. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1982)
    Returns to cattle feeders should move back into the profit column during most of 1982. but feeding margins will remain narrow, says Mike Sands, extension economist specializing in livestock marketing at K-State. “Most ...
  • Jensen, M.; Held, R.; Smith, E.F.; Riley, Jack G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1982)
    Rumensin was self-fed in a loose salt mixture to yearling heifers on late-summer bluestem pasture (August to November). They ate 0.036 lbs. of salt mixture (124 mg of Rumensin) daily, but performance did not improve.
  • Bolsen, K.; Ilg, H.; Nuwanyakpa, M.; Posler, Gerry L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1982)
    Sorghum-Sudan hay and silage and sudangrass hay were compared with forage sorghum silage in an 80-day growing trial involving 60 calves. Calves fed forage sorghum gained 14% faster than those fed sudangrass hay ...
  • Young, B.; Ilg, H.; Bolsen, K. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1982)
    Dry corn (dry), Harvestore ensiled high-moisture corn, stave silo ensiled high-moisture corn (stave H.M.C.) and stave H.M.C. ensiled with NaOH, Cold-flo ammonia, or Silo-Best additives were evaluated in steer and ...
  • Hinds, M.; Brethour, J.; Bolsen, K.; Ilg, H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1982)
    An inoculant (Sila-bac) and a non-protein nitrogen (LSA-100) silage additive were evaluated with whole-plant, forage sorghum silage. Sila-bac silage had the fastest temperature rise and peaked at 10 C above its ...
  • Lynch, G.L.; Zoellner, K.O.; Broce, A.B.; Riley, Jack G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1982)
    When both cows and calves were double-tagged (one tag per ear) with ear tags impregnated with fenvalerate (Ectrin) or permethrin (Atroban), the calves gained faster (P<.01) than when neither cows nor calves were tagged. ...
  • Bolze, R.; Lambert, C.; O'Neill, S.; Corah, L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1982)
    Recently, Kansas State University surveyed the factors a commercial cowman considers when he buys Angus, Simmental, or Hereford bulls. A mail survey of the customers of 29 purebred breeders of those three breeds ...
  • Pretzer, D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1982)
    Survival in the beef cattle business for the next year or so will depend on doing little things well, says Don Pretzer, extension farm management specialist at Kansas State. "Doing enough little things right will add ...
  • Bolsen, K.; Ilg, H.; Nuwanyakpa, M.; Hoover, J. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1982)
    Wheat silage, with and without sodium hydroxide (NaOH), was fed, with or without alfalfa haylage, in an 80-day growing trial. Calves fed NaOH-silage consumed 18% more feed and gained 16% faster than those fed control ...
  • Pruitt, R.J.; Corah, L.R.; Simms, D.D.; Spire, M.F. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1982)
    In six trials involving 486 heifers and 23 bulls, we studied factors affecting pregnancy rates of estrus-synchronized heifers mated naturally and evaluated indicators of bull fertility. Heavier heifers and those in fleshier ...
  • Simms, D.D.; Schwarz, F.L.; Corah, L.R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1982)
    Over a 3-year period (1976-1978), heifer calves either were not implanted or were implanted between 2 and 5 months of age. In 1977, the study also included heifers implanted at birth. Implanting at birth increased ...
  • Robinson, J.B.; Ames, D.R.; Nichols, David A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1982)
    Two trials were conducted to determine the effects of Rumensin in cold-stressed cattle. Steers fed diets with and without Rumensin were exposed to cold stress (0 C) and thermoneutrality (20 C). Rumen volatile fatty acids ...
  • Heidker, J.I.; Ilg, H.; Behnke, Keith C.; Bolsen, K. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1982)
    Sila-bac, molasses, or both combined were evaluated as additives for ensiled high moisture sorghum grain. Control grain had the greatest increase in temperature during ensiling. Grain treated with Sila-bac had the highest ...
  • Bolsen, K.; Ilg, H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1982)
    Normal corn silage, with and without additives, and drought-stressed corn silage were evaluated in a 77-day growing trial using 64 steers. Steers fed drought silage had slowest and least efficient gains. Additive-treat ...
  • Held, R.; Smith, E.F.; Riley, Jack G.; Owensby, Clenton E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1982)
    Native bluestem pastures were grazed by 520-lb steers from April 30 to July 14 at stocking rates of 1.7, 1.3 and 1.1 acres per steer. Daily gain of the steers was about the same for the two heavier stocking rates, but was ...
  • Bolsen, K. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1982)
    Numerous commercial silage additives, manufacturers of which make various claims for their improving silage quality, are available to Kansas farmers and ranchers. In 2 previous years (1980 and 1981), we reported on ...
