  • Allen, Dell M.; Hunt, Melvin C.; Kropf, Donald H.; Chen, V.; Corte, O.; Gutowski, G.H.; Harrison, A.R.; Kuntapanit, C.; Thomas, J.D.; McCurry (Smith), M.E.; Kastner, Curtis L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1978)
    This report terminates a 3-year study and includes data from this past year. Previous results were reported in the 1976 and ’77 Cattlemen’s Day Report.
  • Ames, D.R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1978)
    Nutrient requirements for domestic animals (NRC) published by the National Research Council are the best estimates available. For beef cattle, specific tables are listed for animals of different weights and for various ...
  • Laaser, G.N.; Kiracofe, G.H.; Heekin, M.D.; Ward, H.S.; Odde, Kenneth G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1978)
    Twelve cows were given a preliminary treatment of testosterone proprionate and were used to help us detect other cows in heat. We used two types of testosterone booster treatments to maintain male sex behavior in both age ...
  • Riley, Jack G.; Pope, Ronald V. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1978)
    We used 210 yearling Hereford heifers to evaluate the efficacy of Aureomycin and Rumensin fed alone and in combination. Each product is cleared by the FDA for use in feedlot rations as an individual feed additive, however, ...
  • Corah, L.R.; Fleck, A.; McKee, M.; Schalles, R.R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1978)
    Effect of varying energy levels fed during gestation on reproduction and calf performance were studied in three trials involving 266 first calf heifers. Reducing energy during mid-gestation did not adversely affect the ...
  • Kiracofe, G.H.; Odde, Kenneth G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1978)
    We analyzed date on 1536 fall calving Angus cows to determine the effect of post-partum breeding interval on conception rates in beef cows. Normal fertility was observed for cows showing heat 40 or more days post-partum.
  • Riley, Jack G.; Tobyne, D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1978)
    We used 180 yearling Hereford and Angus x Hereford crossbred steers averaging 643 pounds in a 139-day, feedlot trial to evaluate steer performance when the systemic grub control pesticide Ronnel was fed at 5 levels; 1, 16, ...
  • Corah, L.R.; Wary, R.T.; Schwartz, F.; McKee, M.; Schalles, R.R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1978)
    Three trials were conducted to study the effect on calf weight gains from using two 36-mg. Ralgro implants during the suckling period. Two Ralgro implants 60 to 90 days apart improved the average weight gain during the ...
  • Riley, Jack G.; Newby, S.L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1978)
    Soybean oil or corn oil when fed at 0, 2, 4, or 6% of the ration did not significantly reduce methane production or alter the ratios of volatile fatty acids. Soybean oil was superior to corn oil in reducing methane, and ...
  • Allen, Dell M.; Hunt, Melvin C.; Kropf, Donald H.; Harrison, A.R.; Brent, B.E.; Riley, Jack G.; Kastner, Curtis L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1978)
    We used 150 Angus yearling steers of similar background from the Livestock and Meat Industry Council cattle-flow project. Each was assigned to one of the 12 treatments (10 per treatment) involving low-, medium-, and ...
  • Corah, L.; Kiracofe, G.; Bridson, V.; McKee, M.; Schalles, R.R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1978)
    Although this is based on only ones years’ results, it indicates that the breeding potential of yearling bulls can be determined before they are run with a cow herd. In this test one bull sired the majority of the calves ...
  • O'Banion, D.S.; Zoellner, K.O.; Schalles, R.R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1978)
    Pre-test management was studied on 351 bulls from 54 herds that were tested at the Kansas Bull Test Station at Beloit, Kansas. Charolais, Hereford, Polled Hereford, and Simmental bulls were sick more days than Angus or ...
  • Harbers, L.H.; Ward, G.M. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1978)
    Calcium crystals were located in parallel rows surrounding vascular bundles in alfalfa leaves and under the epidermis of alfalfa stems. The crystals remain intact on vascular bundles in the rumen. Most crystals are dislodged ...
  • Riley, Jack G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1978)
    I conducted two trails during 1977 using 115 cows culled from KSU cow herds. Dry cows on lush brome grass gained 1.5 pounds per head per day. Those on a 60% concentrate ration average 2.2 pounds/day; those on 80% concentrate ...
  • Smith, E.F.; Pruitt, R.; Riley, Jack G.; Corah, L.; Owensby, Clenton E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1978)
    The feed additive, Monensin, was self-fed in a feed block to yearling cattle on summer pasture. Consumption of the block (0.29 lb. daily) supplied 116 mg. of Monensin daily, which failed to improve the cattle’s performance.
  • Helsel, R.M.; Posler, Gerry L.; Riley, Jack G.; Smith, E.F.; Ward, G.M. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1978)
    Late summer grazing of alfalfa or sudangrass by cattle coming off half-season, double-stocked native grazing showed no advantage over immediate feedlot finishing. Late-summer grazers gained less in the feedlot and required ...
  • Oltjen, J.; Bolsen, K.; Moore, W. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1978)
    We harvested barley, wheat and oat varieties at the dough stage. Average yields in tons of 65% moisture forage/acre were 9.3 (barley), 10.2 (hard wheat), 9.5 (soft wheat), and 10.0 (oats). Barley variety yields varied ...
  • Bolsen, K.; Oltjen, J.; Ilg, H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1978)
    Milo stover silage, baled silo stover or forage sorghum silage was fed in 10, 12, or 14% protein rations to 120 calves in a 95-day growing trial, December 9, 1976, to March 14, 1977. Calves fed forage sorghum silage ...
  • Harbers, L.H.; Umoh, J.E.; Raiten, D.A.; Chaffin, V.K. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1978)
    Handclipped and esophageal samples of burned and control native bluestem pastures were taken monthly. Burning increased phosphorus (P) and magnesium (Mg) and decreased iron (Fe). These studies indicate that burned and ...
  • Brent, B.E.; Chestnut, A.; George, P. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1978)
    Tables based on a mathematical model are presented that allow cost of gains by steers at various weights to be calculated. An example illustrate how to use the tables to help with economic decisions.
