    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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...

    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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
