  • King, M.; Kiracofe, G.H.; McKee, R.M. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1981)
    With heifers given two injections of Lutalyse 11 days apart, and inseminated 80 hours after the second injection, only 20% in heat before 48 hours conceived compared with 65% that were in heat 48 to 80 hours after injection. ...
  • Kemp, K.E.; Dikeman, Michael E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1981)
    Data from 1669 steers show that equally palatable beef comes from carcasses with Choice marbling OR 0.4 inch of outside fat cover. Including cattle with 0.4 inch of fat and at least Slight marbling in a new choice grade ...
  • Corah, L.; Brazle, F.; Davidson, Jeffrey L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1981)
    Feeding MGA to grazing heifers suppressed estrus but did not improve gain.
  • Sprott, L.R.; Corah, L.R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1981)
    Four types of ear tags were evaluated for retention over 2 years. Retention was low for one type, and high for the other three types.
  • Ilg, H.; Bolsen, K.; Dikeman, Michael E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1981)
    Growing rations containing forage sorghum silage (FSS) or equal amounts of FSS and alfalfa haylage were fed to crossbred steer calves for 112 days. Steers consumed more of the FSS + haylage but rate and efficiency of ...
  • Riley, Jack G.; Pope, Ronald V. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1981)
    We used 168 yearling steers in a 139-day finishing trial to evaluate high levels of chlortetracycline (aureomycin) fed for short periods at regular intervals during finishing. Since liver abscess rate was low for all ...
  • Bolsen, K.; Ilg, H.; Nuwanyakpa, M. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1981)
    Enzyme (Ensila Plus) and alkali (NaOH) silage additives were evaluated with whole-plant wheat silages which were fed with or without alfalfa haylage (45% moisture). Steers fed NaOH silage consumed the most feed but were ...
  • Wu, J.J.; Hunt, Melvin C.; Kropf, Donald H.; Allen, Dell M.; Kastner, Curtis L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1981)
    We compared taste panel and connective tissue characteristics of beef fed a high energy diet with beef fed grass. The high energy diet produced higher USDA quality and yield grades, more rapid weight gain, and increased ...
  • Allen, Dell M.; Kemp, K.E.; Dikeman, Michael E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1981)
    Calves with different USDA frame sizes had similar carcass composition and quality when slaughtered within the recommended weight range for their frame size. Large-framed calves had higher dressing percentages and ...
  • Harbers, L.H.; Sapienza, D.A.; Schwanke, L.; Kazemi, S.M.; Smith, E.F. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1981)
    We used steers with esophageal cannulas to measure selenium in burned and unburned bluestem pastures between May and September. Individual variation among steers sampled varied as much as two fold in selenium content. ...
  • Bolsen, K.; Ilg, H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1981)
    Inoculant (Sila-bac), non-protein nitrogen (Cold-flo), and alkali (NaOH) silage additives were evaluated with whole-plant forage sorghum silage. All three additives decreased ensiling temperatures. Calves fed Sila-bec or ...
  • Smith, E.F.; Behnke, R.; Owensby, Clenton E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1981)
    Steers on a late spring burned bluestem pasture gained 1.4 lbs daily during the summer compared with 1.0 lb. by steers on a nonburned pasture. All steers were implanted with Ralgro at the start of the grazing season (May ...
  • Bartley, E.E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1981)
    Liquid supplement manufacturers must provide a product that is effectively utilized and is nontoxic. Toxicity can be reduced if the supplement's pH is below 3.8, but low pH alone does not improve nutritive value. A good ...
  • Kiracofe, G.H.; Heekin, M.; Odde, Kenneth G.; King, M. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1981)
    The ability of the Kamar Heatmount Detector to identify cows ready for insemination 80 hours after two Lutalyse injections was tested with 439 beef cows and heifers. The detector was placed on the rump at the second injection ...
