  • Dikeman, Michael E.; Melton, C.C.; Tuma, H.J.; Beecher, G.R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1970)
    Because tenderness is considered the most desired eating characteristic in meat, more emphasis should be placed on this trait in evaluating beef quality in breeding and selection programs. Both tenderness and marbling ...
  • Thyfault, H.A.; Smith, E.F.; Harbers, L.H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1970)
    Biuret, a non protein nitrogen compound, has shown promise as a protein substitute for ruminants fed poor quality roughages. Urea, by comparison, cannot be sued without an adequate supply of energy in the form of either ...
  • Schalles, R.R.; Kiracofe, G.; Drake, C.L.; Reves, C.N. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1970)
    Cow and calf performance under four winter-nutrition levels was compared using 34 cows the first year and 87 cows the second year. Cows were maintained on the same nutrition treatment both years with additional cows ...
  • Clary, F.G.; Brent, B.E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1970)
    Earlier experiments have shown that cattle may perform differently at different Kansas locations. Feeds from four locations (Manhattan, Mound Valley, Colby, and Garden City) were analyzed for several minerals to see if ...
  • Clary, F.G.; Brent, B.E.; Richardson, D.; Erhart, A.B.; Banbury, Evans E.; Boren, Fred W. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1970)
    Effects of environment on the performance of beef steers in Kansas have been studied since 1962. The experiments, in three phases, have included seven feedlot trials and one digestion trial.
  • McCollough, R.L.; Drake, C.L.; Harrison, K.F. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1970)
    In 1969, Kansas harvested 182, 896, 00 bushels from 3,266,00 acres of grains sorghum for a 56-bushel-per-acre average. Much of it is fed to beef cattle; therefore, it would be an economic advantage for both grain producers ...
  • Greathouse, G.; Smith, E.F. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1970)
    Mortality in calves at weaning is one of the major problems in the beef industry. Some relief from this problem might be achieved if the calves could be changed from milk and grass to high energy ration with little lapse ...
  • Drake, C.L.; Good, D.L.; Schalles, R.R.; Hahn, P.A.; Myrick, O.D. Jr. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1970)
    The use of rumen microorganisms is not new but neither is it a common practice. We used a product developed by W.R. Grace and Company in an attempt to reduce the "adaptation period" of cattle placed on a finishing ration. ...
  • Roth, G.M.; Smith, E.F.; Schalles, R.R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1970)
    This test was designed to study the following aspects of all-concentrate rations: (1) salt, (2) supplemental protein (3) self-feeding a protein and premix combination (4) a pelleted premix compared to a mash form, and (5) ...
  • McKee, M.; Schalles, R.R.; Harris, M.; Zoellner, K.O.; Westmeyer, H.W. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1970)
    Carcass data were collected from 24 carcass shows held throughout the Midwest, including eight county shows in Kansas and one county show in Nebraska, seven years’ results from the Kansas National Junior Livestock Show in ...
  • Swanson, R.W.; Smith, E.F. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1970)
    This test compared urea supplement (hand-fed), urea supplement (self-fed), and soybean meal (SBM) supplement (hand-fed) with cows on winter bluestem pasture. The supplements were formulated to supply the same amount of ...
  • McKee, M.; Schalles, R.R.; Zoellner, K.O. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1970)
    Fourteen registered Hereford cows in the Kansas State University purebred teaching herd were mated artificially to the Simmental bull Capitaine #1236 in November and December, 1968. The 23 ampules of semen available ...
  • Drake, C.L.; Carlson, V.P.; Wilson, P.H.; Allen, Dell M. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1970)
    An new white variety of sorghum grain (Funk’s G766W) has been reported to be higher in digestible dry matter and protein than elevator-run, rod sorghum grain. A 120-day field trial was conducted on the George and Vernon ...
