  • Jensen, F.E.; Erickson, D.B.; Trieb, S.E.; Tuma, H.J. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1972)
    The U.S. system of producing, marketing, and distributing farm products has been heralded as the world’s most efficient, with lower distribution costs than any other nation. Research continues to improve marketing through ...
  • Leising, J.; Tuma, H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1972)
    Meat shrinkage is a major problem for the beef industry. Shrinkage (loss in weight) results from many factors: improper chilling, low humidity, not packaging, poor sanitation, or excessive ageing time. Most beef is chilled ...
  • Brent, B.E.; Lusby, K.S.; Kobuszewski, J.A.; Parks, J.C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1972)
    Polioencephalomalacia (PEM) is a disorder of the ruminant central nervous system characterized by sudden onset and rapid death. At autopsy, the brain may be swollen and cerebral cortex degenerated. Early symptoms may include ...
  • McCollough, R.L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1972)
    In 1971, Kansas produced 234 million bushels of sorghum grain worth $217,000,000, second only to Texas. Most of it is used as an energy source in livestock rations. Since the introduction of hybrid sorghum grain in 1956, ...
  • McCollough, R.L.; Brent, B.E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1972)
    Apparent coefficient of digestion (COD) was determined for eight hybrid sorghum grains and three hybrid corns named in Part I.
  • Tuma, H.J.; Allen, Dell M.; May, M.L.; Albrecht, M.D.; Dikeman, Michael E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1972)
    This report contains results from the U.S. Meat Animal Research Center Cattle Germ Plasm Evaluation Program. Dr. Keith Gregory and Dr. Hudson Glimp, U.S. Meat Animal Research Center, Clay Center, Nebraska, initiated and ...
  • Schalles, R.R.; Milleret, R.J.; McKee, M.; Olson, J.R.; Evans, J.; Carnahan, D.L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1972)
    Respiratory diseases of weanling calves are a continuous problem for ranchers. Each case is estimated to represent a $10 to $20 loss through veterinary costs, decreased gains, and death losses. There is also some question ...
  • McKee, M.; Evans, J.D.; Schalles, R.R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1972)
    Twenty-six Angus, Hereford, and Shorthorn bull calves were started on feed November 16, 1970, to study differences in protein content of rations. The bulls were from 184 to 302 days old. They were randomly assigned within ...
  • Tucker, L.L.; Harbers, L.H.; Smith, E.F. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1972)
    During the winter of 1970-71, 63 six-year-old, non-lactating, pregnant Hereford cows were divided into eight groups to compare a soybean meal-sorghum grain supplement with supplements containing either urea, Starea 44 ...
  • Tucker, L.L.; Harbers, L.H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1972)
    Use of urea in beef cattle rations, particularly in rations containing high levels of roughage (growing-type rations), has been limited by urea’s toxicity, segregation and mixing problems, palatability, and poor use by ...
  • McCollough, R.L.; Schalles, R.R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1972)
    This station has grown and fed the same four (yellow endosperm) hybrid sorghum grains (Funk G-766W, Acco R-l09, DeKalb E-57, and Northrup King 222) in an all-concentrate ration to steers two consecutive years. Results ...
  • Rao, M.R.; Harbers, L.H.; Smith, E.F. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1972)
    To determine the nutritional value of an animals diet, it is necessary to know the amount of each kind of feed consumed and its digestibility. A problem in range and pasture nutrition is accurate assessment of chemical and ...
  • Harbers, L.H.; Harrison, K.F.; Richardson, D.; Smith, E.F. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1972)
    Twenty-four Hereford x Angus heifers averaging 714 lbs. were allotted by weight to four groups of six animals each to study effects on gain, feed intake, and feed efficiency of: 1. Free-choice whole corn without ...
