  • Bolsen, K.; Oltjen, J. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1978)
    Wheat, barley, or oat silages can provide excellent alternatives to corn and sorghum silages for beef cattle. Wheat, barley, oat, and corn silages were fed to steers in seven ...
  • McKee, M.; Fink, G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1978)
    Percentage Simmental and Hereford calves gained slightly more (13 lbs./hd) while nursing their mothers than 83 herd mates that were weaned early at 49 (+27) days of age. Percentage Simmental cows whose calves were weaned ...
  • Peverley, B.; Corah, L.; McKee, M. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1978)
    Ninety-one Simmental-Hereford and Hereford cows in early gestation were used to compare three rations in a 106-day trial: (1) wheat straw, (2) wheat tailings, and (3) soaked wheat straw. Each was fed to groups of lactation ...
  • Thompson, W.; Oltjen, J.; Bolsen, K.; Ilg, H.; Riley, Jack G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1978)
    Sudangrass, sorghum-sudan, forage sorghum, and corn silages were full-fed to yearling steers for 70-or 91-day growing periods. For both periods, steers fed corn silage outperformed steers fed any other silage. In the 70-day ...
  • McKee, M.; Kimple, K.; Ames, D.R.; Willms, C.L.; Corah, L.R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1978)
    Cows in mid-to-late gestation gained weight when fed either milo stover silage or alfalfa hay-wheat straw but lost weight when the forage source was milo-stover bales. When supplemented with additional corn grain as ...
  • Pruitt, R.; Fleck, A.; Smith, E.F.; Corah, L.; Owensby, Clenton E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1978)
    Reimplanting Ralgro in mid-July after implanting in late April did not improve daily summer gains compared to a single implant.
  • Smith, E.F.; Schalles, B.; Harbers, L.; Pruitt, R.; Owensby, Clenton E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1978)
    Long term (28 years) annual, late spring burning of bluestem pasture produced the most daily gain of all pasture treatments but not significantly more than stocking intensively early. Nitrogen applied to a late-spring-burned ...
  • McKee, M.; Kimole, K.; Corah, L.R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1978)
    Cows in mid-to-late gestation gained significantly (P<.05) more while grazing milo stover supplemented on alternative days with 4 lbs. per head of a natural protein than cows with no protein supplement. Although protein ...
  • 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.
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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.
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
