    Three trials with Angus, Hereford, and Shorthorn bulls produced in the University teaching herd were conducted to determine effects of 10, 12, or 14% calculated crude protein levels in grain rations. In trial 1, the 10% ...
  • Shiawoya, E.L.; Harbers, L.H.; Bolsen, K.K.; Riley, Jack G.; Dikeman, Michael E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1974)
    Protein supplements composed of either soybean meal, a combination of soybean meal and urea, or milo Starea improved gain 5% and feed efficiency 4% over supplements of either urea or wheat Starea (P<.25). Cost of gain ...
  • Berger, L.L.; Harbers, L.H.; Schalles, R.R.; Smith, E.F.; Owensby, Clenton E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1974)
    Nine pastures of 492 acres were summer grazed by yearling steers. Five were burned April 24, 1973; four were not burned. Burned and nonburned pastures had 0, 40, or 80 lbs. of nitrogen per acre applied aerially. Stocking ...

    Similar gains and adjusted weaning weights can be expected from calves whose dams are wintered on soybean meal or Starea protein blocks. Rebreeding time is expected to be similar for both groups of dams.
  • Heersche, G. Jr.; Kiracofe, G.; McKee, M.; Davis, Duane L.; Brower, G.R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1974)
    Forty-seven of 50 heifers were in estrus 1 to 5 days after an injection of prostaglandin given when an ear implant of Synchro-mate B was removed. The implant had been in place one week. Thirty of the 47 (63.8%) heifers with ...
  • McKee, M.; Bolsen, K.K.; Conway, K.L.; Fink, G.; Riley, Jack G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1974)
    An 85-day, post weaning growth rate for 30 calves weaned at an average age of 110.5 days was compared with the growth rate of 30 calves nursing their mothers the same period. Average age of the nursing calves at the start ...
  • Bolsen, K.K.; Conway, K.L.; Riley, Jack G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1974)
    Two trials were conducted to evaluate two varieties of wheat head silage (Parker and Blue Boy) and whole-plant corn silage in growing rations for steers. Each silage was fed to 21 steers for 122 days. All steers ...
  • Vanderlip, R. L.; Schneider, L.R.; Bolsen, K.K. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1974)
    Last year in Kansas approximately 3.8 million acres produced 243 million bushels of grain sorghum plus a large amount of forage left in the field as a potential source of feed for livestock. The objective of this report ...
