    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 ...
  • Ames, D.R.; Robinson, J.B.; Nichols, David A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1982)
    During a 56-day test, four pens of finishing cattle were sprinkled when dry-bulb temperatures exceeded 80 F. The performance of the cattle was compared with that of cattle in pens not sprinkled. Cattle in sprinkled pens ...
  • Soderlund, S.; Bolsen, K.; Brent, B.; Pope, Ronald V.; Riley, Jack G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1982)
    Trials were conducted to evaluate the storing, handling, and feeding of whole sorghum grain stillage from a farm-scale still. Stillage varied in dry matter among batches and had to be agitated to keep solids suspended. ...
