  • Schalles, R.R.; Pitts, C.W. Jr.; McKee, M.; Evans, J. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1972)
    Cattlemen have traditionally used various methods to control horn flies and, more recently, face flies. Many methods used require various amounts of labor and handling of cattle. Most recent efforts have stressed minimum ...
  • Harbers, L.H.; Pitts, C.W.; Harrision, K.F.; Tucker, L.L.; Smith, E.F. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1972)
    A convenient method to control flies in cattle manure is adding an insecticide to the ration. The chemical passes through the digestive tract and effectively controls fly larvae in the manure. It may also influence animal ...
  • Rao, M.R.; Harbers, L.H.; Latschar, A.M.; Smith, E.F. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1972)
    The evaluation of pastures by esophageally fistulated steers requires artificial rumen techniques to determine digestibilities of grasses. To develop a regression curve between data obtained by an artificial rumen and those ...
  • Bolsen, K.K.; Cox, O.J.; Drake, C.L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1972)
    The use of high moisture grain in beef cattle rations has increased during the past several years. It has improved feed efficiency of high energy rations five to 20 percent in previous research. Non-nutritional advantages ...
  • Schalles, R.R.; Zoellner, K.O.; Meier, R.J. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1972)
    Crossbred cows are common but interested in using crossbred bulls is recent. Little information is available on use of crossbred bulls, so advice and recommendations have been based on genetic principles rather than research. ...
  • McCollough, R.L.; Drake, C.L.; Roth, G.M. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1972)
    A 126-day feedlot trial was used to determine feedlot performances and nutritional values of eight hybrid sorghum grains and three hybrid corns.
  • McCollough, R.L.; Riley, Jack G.; Drake, C.L.; Roth, G.M. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1972)
    Previous trials here indicated a possible difference in nutritional values of different hybrid sorghum grains with yellow endosperm hybrids being superior to white endosperm. We compared feedlot performance of yellow ...
  • 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 ...
