    The Kansas cattle feeding industry has grown tremendously since 1956. The 1968 January Cattle on Feed Report shows more than ten times as many cattle in commercial feedlots as in 1956. Farm feedlots have also increased, ...
  • Smart, L.I.; Drake, C.L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1968)
    Silage is being utilized in larger quantities in beef cattle growing and fattening rations. Hammes et al. (1964) showed that higher levels of corn silage can be used because gains from high silage and high grain rations ...
  • Schalles, R.R.; Drake, C.L.; Allen, Dell M. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1968)
    Freeze marking for within-herd identification was used on 65 Hereford females. The cattle were 18 months to nearly three years old. Three numerals were placed on the right rump of each animal in the fall of 1967. The ...
  • Smith, E.F.; Owensby, Clenton E.; Kolstad, S.P. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1968)
    Studied were the effects of early season heavy stocking and burning on cattle performance, productivity of pastures and range condition as determined by plant population changes. The objective of early season heavy ...
  • Phar, P.A.; Zimmer, P.R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1968)
    Two feedlot trials were conducted during the summer of 1967 at the Morris Feed Yards, Marris, Kansas, to study effects of aureomycin (chlortetracycline) and sulfamethazine fed alone or in combination on weight gain, feed ...
  • Drake, C.L.; Smart, L.I.; Smith, E.F.; Lipper, R.I. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1968)
    This is a cooperative project with the Department of Agricultural Engineering to study surface runoff, in addition to animal performance. Twenty Hereford heifers were randomly allotted to four equal sized lots: 2 surfaced ...
  • Smart, L.I.; Drake, C.L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1968)
    Melengestrol acetate (MGA) 1S a new drug recently approved for use in the supplement portion of rations of feed-lot heifers. The recommended level is from 0.25 to 0.50 mg. per head per day. A 48-hour withdrawal period is ...
  • Smith, E.F.; Richardson, D.; Drake, C.L.; Brent, B.E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1968)
    Trials at several research centers as well as in Kansas (Bulletin 483, page 32) have shown roughage may be satisfactorily omitted from finishing rations for cattle and doing so, often reduces feed required per pound of ...
  • Smith, W.H.; Akinokun, J.; Schalles, R.R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1968)
    Two inbred lines of purebred Shorthorn cattle were established and progressively developed, to study production traits and effects of inbreeding. Inbreeding was initiated in the Wernace Premier Line in 1949 and in the ...
  • Tuma, H.J.; Grant, D.; Covington, R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1968)
    The beef carcass quality grading system currently used has been challenged by many who say current standards are too high and that the amount of marbling to attain a given grade should be decreased.
  • Brent, B.E.; Adepoju, A.; Portela, F.; Richardson, D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1968)
    Rumen bacteria elaborate an enzyme, urease. Urease is capable of breaking down urea to ammonia and carbon dioxide. Rumen bacteria then incorporate the ammonia into new amino acids and bacterial protein. Thus, urea can ...
  • Westmeyer, H.W.; Zoellner, K.O. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1968)
    The Kansas Beef Cattle Improvement Program is to help improve beef cow herds in Kansas and to provide information that will be valuable to producers in selecting breeding animals and making management decisions. The program ...
  • Richardson, D.; Clary, F.G.; Banbury, Evans E.; Spaeth, C.W.; Erhart, A.B.; Arnett, D.W.; Boren, Fred W.; Perry, H.B. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1968)
    Four previous tests (Kans. Agri. Expt. Sta. Bull. 507:7, 1967) at Colby, Garden City, Manhattan, and Mound Valley, using beef steers from the same herd and feeding the same feedstuffs, grown locally, produced differences ...
  • Smith, E.F.; Richardson, D.; Drake, C.L.; Brent, B.E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1968)
    Tests reporting on sorghum grain as the only protein source in a diet for finishing cattle are reported in Kansas Agr. Expt. Station Bulletins 493 and 507 and on page 24 in this bulletin. The three rations fed are show ...
  • Richardson, D.; Smith, E.F.; Brent, B.E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1968)
    A previous test using sorghum silage (Kans. Agri. Expt. Sta. Bull. 507:5, 1967) indicated that 3 pounds of grain per day in silage would supply enough available energy for reasonably good utilization of nonprotein ...
  • Drake, C.L.; Schalles, R.R.; Smith, C.W. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1968)
    A preliminary trail involving use of an artery clamp and a drawing and description of the clamp are reported in Bulletin 507. This trial involved 42 horned heifers owned and fed by a cooperating feedlot operator. The ...
  • Drake, C.L.; Smart, L.I.; Smith, E.F. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1968)
    Two hundred weaning calves were received in two shipments and placed on experiment. The calves were weighed, ear tagged and tattooed as rapidly as possible after being received, and were treated as follows: Treatment ...
