  • Burson, D.E.; Hunt, Melvin C.; Hayward, L.H.; Kastner, Curtis L.; Kropf, Donald H.; Allen, Dell M. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1979)
    We assigned 112 Angus yearling steers to 14 nutritional treatments including control. Submaintenance, and 12 different combinations of ration energy (low, medium or high) and feeding period (56,91, 119, 147, or 175 days). ...
  • Schalles, R.R.; Fleck, A.T.; Corah, L.R.; Kiracofe, G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1979)
    Pelvic area had little influence on the number or severity of calving problems after size and condition of two-year-old first-calf heifers, sex and weight of their calf, and genetic background of the heifer and her ...
  • Dikeman, Michael E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1979)
    Different crossbred (X) cattle types were evaluated for growth, feed efficiency, carcass and meat traits. Steers were studied from mating Angus (A), Hereford (H), Brahman (B), Sahiwal (S), Pinzgauer (P), and Tarentaise (T) ...
  • George, P.; Brent, B.E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1979)
    Tables based on mathematical models illustrate how feed intake, rate of gain, and feed efficiency change during the feeding period and in response to different wing-chill temperatures. The tables wert used to calculate ...
  • Leafgreen, M.O.; McCoy, J.H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1979)
    This analysis measured efficiencies of a centralized retail meat fabrication facility receiving all beef as boxed or as carcasses. Moving vacuum-packaged, boxed-beef subprimals through a central meat processing facility ...
  • Ames, D.R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1979)
    Adjusting feedlot rations to match the thermal environment can reduce costs of gains. Adjusting protein content of rations does not change average daily gain but it improves protein efficiency.
  • Thompson, W.; Riley, Jack G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1979)
    Ration erode protein levels of 9%, 11%, 15%, 12 declining to 10.5% and 13% declining to 11% and finally to 9% were fed with and without Monensin. Steers fed 9% protein continuously gained the least and were the least ...
  • Nagaraja, T. G.; Bartley, E.; Fina, L.; Anthony, H.; Leipold, H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1979)
    We have found that rumen bacteria contain endotoxins that are released into rumen fluid. Also rumen fluid from grain-fed cattle contains considerably more free endotoxin than rumen fluid from hay-fed cattle. Injecting ...
  • Thompson, W.; Riley, Jack G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1979)
    The average producer we surveyed was 46 years old with 1 year of college. He had 125 cows and 5 bulls, usually Hereford or Angus, breeding naturally on pasture for 4 1/2 months. Most replacement heifers calved at the ...
  • Peverley, B.; Corah, L.; McKee, M.; Pope, Ronald V. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1979)
    We conducted two trials to study using wheat straw in rations of either lactating or gestating beef cows maintained in dry lot. In trial 1, cow weight changes the last 60 days of lactation were: alfalfa hay, +26.88 lbs; ...
  • Nuwanyakpa, M.; Posler, Gerry L.; Bolsen, K.K.; Ilg, H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1979)
    In 1977, all summer annual forages studied produced excellent yields. Based on leafiness and regrowth ability, sudangrasses and pearl millet appeared to be best for early vegetative and boot cutting management. The ...
