  • 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 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.
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
