  • Bolsen, K.; Ilg, H.; Hinds, M.; Hoover, J. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1982)
    Four alfalfa forages were evaluated: 1) hay; 2) low-dry matter (DM) silage; 3) medium-DM silage; and 4) high-DM silage. All forages were full-fed along with 2 lb of supplement or supplement plus 2 or 4 lb of cracked corn. ...
  • Simms, D.D.; Odde, Kenneth G.; Corah, L.R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1982)
    In three field trials, we removed calves from 187 beef cows for 48 hours at the beginning of the breeding season to determine the effect on the cows' cycling activity, conception rate, and pregnancy rate. When calves ...
  • Corah, L.R.; Busby, W.D.; Riley, Jack G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1982)
    One hundred two steers were used to study the effect of Avoparcin on the performance of grazing steers. Four desired dosages -- 0. 200, 400. and 600 mg/head/day -- were compared in a self-fed mineral mix. Feeding Avoparcin ...
  • Lomas, Lyle W. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1982)
    Cattle fed Bovatec consumed 17.4% less feed and were 17.7% more efficient than controls, with no effect on gain. Ralgro implants improved gain 12% and feed efficiency 6.9%, with no effect on feed intake. Bovatec and ...
  • Lomas, Lyle W. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1982)
    Steers fed 100 mg or 200 mg of Bovatec per head daily while grazing bromegrass gained 16.4% and 23.9% faster, respectively, during 112 days of grazing than did controls.
  • Lomas, Lyle W. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1982)
    Cattle fed Bovatec consumed 18.3% less feed and were 19.4% more efficient in feed conversion than controls, with no effect on gain. Synovex-S implants improved gain by 8.2% with no effect on feed intake and feed efficiency. ...
  • Corah, L.R.; Riley, Jack G.; Pope, Ronald V. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1982)
    Steers fed 200 mg of Lasalocid per day while grazing bromegrass pasture gained 7.6% faster than non-medicated controls; however, this difference was not statistically significant.
  • Lomas, Lyle W. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1982)
    COMPUDOSE (an estradiol removable implant) increased steer gains during 202 days of grazing by 11.4%. Ralgro implants (once at the beginning of the study) increased gain 8.5%. Steer performance on the two implants ...
  • 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 ...
