  • Chestnut, A.; Brent, B.E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1977)
    We are developing mathematical models to show how feed intake, rate of gain, and feed efficiency change during the finishing period. When finished, the models might be used to predict when to sell cattle to maximize profit ...
  • Ames, D.R.; Willms, C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1977)
    Four lots of growing-finishing cattle were sprinkled when dry bulb temperature exceeded 80 F the summer of 1976 and compared with lots not sprinkled. Sprinkled lots gained significantly (P<.01) more (1.20 kg per day compared ...
  • Ames, D.R.; Willms, C.L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1977)
    A summer feedlot trial indicates that protein can be removed from finishing rations in proportion to magnitude of heat stress without causing a decline in average daily lain. Cattle consumed .13 kg/hd/day (.30 lb) less ...
  • Koons, L.; Riley, Jack G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1977)
    Twenty-four Kansas feedyards with 432,000 head capacity participated in a survey on operation procedures. The survey covered five areas: processing, animal health, rations, facilities, and marketing. Methods differed most ...

    We used 72 Hereford and Hereford x Angus cross yearling steers to further evaluate 200 mg Monensin (trade name Rumensin) per head daily. Monensin improved gain 6.7% and significantly improved efficiency, 12.3%.
