    Fat is added to commercial feedlot rations as a concentrated energy source and to reduce dustiness and wear of feed processing machinery. We added fat at varying levels ( 0 to 6% of the ration) to study effects from fat ...
  • Arehart, L.A.; Banbury, Evans E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1971)
    Sugar beet by-products are available to cattle feeders in northwestern Kansas, but their value as livestock feed is not known. In 1967-68, steers fed liquid protein concentrate beet pulp pellets (LPC) in wintering rations ...
  • McCollough, R.L.; Drake, C.L.; Schalles, R.R.; Roth, G.N.; Harrison, K.F. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1971)
    Hybrid sorghum grain is the major source of energy in livestock finishing rations in the Midwest. In 1969, 739 million bushels of sorghum grain were produced in the United States and 620 million bushels, or 84% were fed ...
  • Yauk, D.O.; Drake, C.L.; Schalles, R.R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1971)
    Because most finishing rations contain a high proportion of grain, better processing of sorghum grain to increase grain utilization should improve ration efficiency. Work in Texas, Oklahoma, Arizona, and Fort Hays has ...
  • Smith, E.F.; Harbers, L.H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1971)
    Three different rations were compared for feeding calves immediately after weaning. Desired is a ration that will reduce weaning stress, produce economical gains, and be easy to feed. The rations are shown in Table 4. ...
  • McKee, M.; Schalles, R.R.; Zoellner, K.O. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1971)
    Data on nine Simmental-Hereford cross calves (3 bulls and 6 females) from birth to 6 months of age was reported in Bulletin 536. The three bulls shared conditions with three Hereford, four Angus, and one Shorthorn bull. ...
  • Tucker, L.; Harbers, L.H.; Smith, E.F. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1971)
    More urea, a torn of nonprotein nitrogen, would be fed to ruminants except for inefficient conversion of urea-nitrogen to Microbial protein, toxicity, lack of palatability and urea segregating in mixed rations. As a ...
  • Tuma, H.J.; Allen, Dell M.; Dikeman, Michael E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1971)
    Numerous instruments have been developed to objectively measure tenderness, an important eating characteristics of beef. The Kramer shear press and Warner-Bratzler shear show the best relationships to taste panel tenderness ...
  • Harbers, L.H.; Warren, L.C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1971)
    Because it is a standard practice, adding salt to livestock rations has not received much attention in the past several years. Salt is universally added at 0.5% of the diet, but studies here in the early 50’s showed salt ...
  • Schalles, R.R.; Drake, C.L.; Kiracofe, G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1971)
    Cow productivity on four supplemental winter feeding levels were compared over 2 years. Cattle were grazed on native bluestem year round. Cows calved between February 15 and May 5. Only records (104) of cows that raised ...
