  • Vanmiddlesworth, J.; Schalles, R.R.; Milliken, George A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1975)
    We developed a procedure to compare yearling weight ratios of a calf crop when the calves have been on different management or feeding regimes This procedure will also produce more meaningful sire and dam summaries.
  • Berger, L.L.; Schalles, R.R.; Harbers, L.H.; Smith, E.F.; Owensby, Clenton E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1975)
    Burning and fertilizing treatments on six Bluestem pastures were evaluated by comparing performance of spring-calving cows and calves that grazed them. Two control pastures were not burned or fertilized, two pastures were ...
  • Schalles, R.R.; Kiracofe, G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1975)
    The reproductive performance of a herd of Polled Hereford cows was evaluated over an eight year period. Culling cows the first time they were open would not have improved the future calving rates in this herd. The cost of ...
  • Warren, J.H.; Smith, E.F.; Schalles, R.R.; Berger, L.; Fink, G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1975)
    We found no advantage for creep feeding calves for either all summer or 37 days prior to weaning. All calves were with their dams on native pasture. Calves not creep fed or creep fed only 37 days before weaning were sick ...
  • McKee, M.; Conway, K.L.; Fink, G.; Schalles, R.R.; Bolsen, K.K.; Zoellner, K.O. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1975)
    Thirty-nine Angus, Hereford, and part Simmental bulls were tested 140 days (December 18, 1973 to May 6,1974) for weight gained. Bulls were divided into four groups and fed four different rations that had been formulated ...
  • Morrison, D.G.; Kiracofe, G.H.; Heersche, G. Jr.; Schalles, R.R.; McKee, M. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1975)
    Calving was induced in 44 Polled Hereford cows at 275 days’ gestation. Twenty mgs. Of dexamethasone (Azium) given intramuscularly caused parturition an average of 43.1 hours after injection (range 21 to 57). An injection ...
  • Morrison, D.G.; Kiracofe, G.H.; Heersche, G. Jr.; Schalles, R.R.; McKee, M. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1975)
    Eighty-three cows were each treated with a nine-day Syncro-mate B ear implant and one estrogen and progesterone injection. After implant removal, cows were artificially inseminated either 48, 54 or 60 hours later or 12 ...
  • 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 ...
  • Berger, L.L.; Harbers, L.H.; Schalles, R.R.; Smith, E.F.; Owensby, Clenton E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1975)
    Nine pastures totaling 492 acres were summer grazed by yearling Hereford steers. Five pastures were burned April 24, 1974; four were not burned. Burned and nonburned pastures had 0, 40, or 80 lbs. of nitrogen per ...
  • 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 ...
