    Chianina-X steers gained consistently during a 151-day finishing test and produced high yielding carcasses with 0.06 in. fat and 1.71 square of loin per hundred pounds of carcass. Average USDA quality grade was between ...
  • May, M.L.; Lipsey, R.J.; Loveday, H.D.; Allen, Dell M.; Dikeman, Michael E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1975)
    Different cattle types were evaluated for growth, feed efficiency, and carcass and meat traits. Hereford, Angus, Jersey, South Devon, Limousin, Simmental, and Charolais sires were bred artificially to Angus and Hereford ...
  • Lipsey, R.J.; Dikeman, Michael E.; Riley, Jack G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1975)
    Sixteen Maine Anjou and 16 Gelbvieh steer calves from Angus or Hereford crossbred dams, and 16 Hereford x Angus crossbred steers were fed the same ration in individual pens until they reached a weekly energy efficiency ...
  • Schalles, R.R.; Zoellner, K.O. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1975)
    Bulls on summer test gained faster than those on winter test. Breeds from Continental Europe were taller at the shoulder and gained faster than British breeds. Older bulls that were lighter at the start of the test gained ...
  • Sapienza, D.A.; Brent, B.E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1975)
    In ruminants fed high grain rations, a condition called polioencephalomalacia (PEM), characterized by central nervous system derangement, can develop. It usually is noninfectious, responds to thiamin injections, and is ...

  • Bolsen, K.K.; Fink, G.; Riley, Jack G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1975)
    We used 75 yearling steers in a 92-day trial to evaluate three sources of roughage: (1) chopped prairie hay; (2) milo stover silage; and (3) milo stover pellets; and five milo treatments: (1) dry, 85.5% dry matter ...
  • Heersche, G.; Kiracofe, G.H.; McKee, R.M.; Morrison, D.G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1975)
    Estrous synchronization would benefit the cattle industry. Successful methods are not commercially available, so new compounds and treatment procedures are being tested. Treatment with melengestrol acetate, prostaglandin, ...
  • McKee, M.; Bolsen, K.K.; Schalles, R.R.; Conway, K.L.; Fink, G.; Riley, Jack G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1975)
    Growth rate of 38 calves after being weaned at an average of 91.6 days was compared with growing rate of 37 calves averaging 91.2 days of age and continuing to nurse their mothers the same period. Average daily gains ...
  • Bolsen, K.K.; Berger, L.L.; Riley, Jack G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1975)
    Seven silage and ration treatments compared were: (1) Paoli barley, (2) Arthur wheat, (3) Parker wheat, (4) Parker-head wheat, (5) Parker-head wheat and corn silage (equal parts), (6) corn silage plus a soybean meal ...
