  • Corah, L.; Bolsen, K.; McKee, M.; Riley, Jack G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1977)
    Seventy five purebred heifers were used to determine whether Monensin, (trade name Rumensin) fed during the initial growing period after weaning, would affect the reproductive performance of yearling heifers. Rumensin ...
  • Posler, Gerry L.; Bolsen, K. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1977)
    The attempt to increase total forage TDN per acre by double-cropping was only moderately successful in 1975 and 1976. Limiting factors were relatively poor stands and extremely dry summer growing seasons.
  • Bolsen, K.; Moore, W. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1977)
    Interest in small cereal grain silages for beef cattle has increased in recent years. Two years' research at this station (Prog. Rpt. 262) has shown: (1) winter barley and winter wheat had similar forage yields and (2) ...
  • Bolsen, K.; Chyba, Leslie J.; Ibbetson, W. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1977)
    In growing rations containing fescue hay, micronized corn + urea-liquid gave: (1) 20.5% faster gains and 11.5% more efficient gains than cracked corn + urea-liquid and (2) similar rate and efficiency of gains as cracked ...
  • Bolsen, K.; Oltjen, J.; Riley, Jack G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1977)
    Twenty-four individually fed heifers were used 1n two heifer trials to evaluate four combinations of micronized or dry-rolled milo and soybean meal or urea supplements 1n prairie hay growing rations. Feeding 4 to 5 lbs. ...
  • Bolsen, K.; Riley, Jack G.; Grimes, C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1977)
    Ninety heifer calves were used to compare six rations containing various combinations of milo stover, forage sorghum and alfalfa silages. In the 96-day trial, heifers fed 100% forage sorghum silage outperformed heifers ...
  • Bolsen, K.; Riley, Jack G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1977)
    Steers fed corn silage gained significantly (P<.05) faster than steers fed any other roughage. Wheat silage ranked second with gains significantly (P<.05) more than gains from milo stover silage, alfalfa hay or corn ...
  • Bolsen, K.; Oltjen, J.; Riley, Jack G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1977)
    Eleven wheat, barley, oat and corn silages were evaluated in two steers growing trials in 1975 and 1976. In both trials, steers fed barley or corn silages had similar rate and efficiency of gains. Also, barley and corn ...
