  • Aubel, N.A.; Edwards, L.N.; Eckerle, G.J.; Pacheco, L.A.; Olson, K. C.; Jaeger, John R.; Blasi, Dale A.; Murray, Leigh W. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2011-03-30)
    Estimating the nutritive value of a grazing animal’s diet is a significant challenge. Description of the botanical composition of a grazed diet is vital in that regard. Microhistological analysis of fecal material has ...
  • Johnson, Sandra K.; Harmoney, Keith R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2011-03-30)
    Beef producers can lower feed costs by extending the grazing period and reducing the need for harvested forages. Complementary forage systems extend the native range grazing season; wheat pasture is common in the southern ...
  • Stickel, A.; Houser, Terry A.; Olson, K. C.; Gerlach, B.; Goehring, B.; Pacheco, A.; Macek, M.; Parsons, G.; Miller, K.; Thompson, L.; Dikeman, Michael E.; Unruh, John A.; Blasi, Dale A.; Drouillard, James S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2011-03-30)
    With increasing feed costs, producers may be able to utilize forage resources to help cattle gain weight before entering a high-concentrate finishing phase. In theory, heavy stocker cattle need less time on feed before ...
  • Eborn, D.R.; Blair, E.E.; Grieger, David M. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2011-03-30)
    The EAZI-BREED CIDR is commonly used in estrous synchronization protocols for both beef heifers and cows. The label calls for insertion of a progesterone-impregnated controlled internal drug release (CIDR) for 7 consecutive ...
  • Macek, M.J.; Iliff, J.W.; Schmidt, T.B.; Pacheco, L.A.; Olson, K. C.; Jaeger, John R.; Thomson, Daniel U. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2011-03-30)
    Bovine respiratory disease decreases profitability associated with cattle feeding. The cost of respiratory disease includes death loss, expenses associated with treatment, and reduced growth performance. Respiratory ...
  • Skaar, G.R.; Boyle, Elizabeth A. E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2011-03-30)
    Beef jerky is a popular meat snack that is simple to recognize and define. The USDA Food Standards and Labeling Policy Book (FSLPB) allows labeling use of the title “jerky” to a product that has been dried to a ...
  • Lee, T.; Mamedova, Laman K.; Wileman, Benjamin W.; Thomson, Daniel U.; Bradford, Barry J.; Reinhardt, Christopher D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2011-03-30)
    Anabolic implants in finishing beef cattle offer significant return on investment. Anabolic implants improve average daily gain feed efficiency in pasture and feedlot cattle. One way growth-promoting implants stimulate ...
  • Stevenson, Jeffrey S.; Pulley, S.L.; Mellieon, H.I.; Olson, K. C.; Johnson, Sandra K.; Grieger, David M.; Jaeger, John R.; Breiner, Ryan M. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2011-03-30)
    The 7-day CO-Synch + CIDR protocol is a popular ovulation-synchronization program used by cow-calf producers to facilitate artificial insemination (AI). A progesterone- impregnated controlled internal drug release (CIDR) ...
  • Pacheco, L.A.; Jaeger, John R.; Bormann, Jennifer; Olson, K. C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2011-03-30)
    Ultrasound is widely used in seed stock production, commercial operations, and in feed yards to predict carcass merit. It also has been used to assess the value of individuals as parents in the seed stock industry. ...
  • Blair, E.; Moser, Daniel W.; Marston, T.T.; Bormann, Jennifer (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2011-03-30)
    Residual feed intake (RFI) has gained popularity as a selection tool for improving feed efficiency in beef cattle. RFI is the difference between what an animal consumes and what it is predicted to consume based on size ...
  • Eckerle, G.J.; Pacheco, L.A.; Olson, K. C.; Jaeger, John R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2011-03-30)
    Sericea lespedeza (Lespedeza cuneata) is a noxious weed that infests approximately 600,000 acres of native tallgrass range in Kansas. Intake of sericea lespedeza by grazing livestock is poor, presumably as a result of ...
  • Stickel, A.; Houser, Terry A.; Olson, K. C.; Gerlach, B.; Goehring, B.; Pacheco, A.; Macek, M.; Parsons, G.; Miller, K.; Thompson, L.; Dikeman, Michael E.; Unruh, John A.; Blasi, Dale A.; Drouillard, James S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2011-03-30)
    Grazing stocker cattle on low-quality forages is a common practice in Kansas; however, animal performance typically is modest. Due to the increasing availability of ethanol co-products, producers may be able to use dried ...
  • Highfill, C.M.; Font, O.E.; Kropf, Donald H.; Dikeman, Michael E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2011-03-30)
    In semitropical climates in the United States, Bos indicus breeds of cattle, primarily the Brahman breed, are utilized in crossbreeding programs with Bos taurus cattle to improve productivity by increasing disease and ...
  • Eckerle, G.J.; Pacheco, L.A.; Olson, K. C.; Jaeger, John R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2011-03-30)
    Sericea lespedeza (Lespedeza cuneata) is a noxious weed that infests approximately 600,000 acres of native tallgrass range in the Kansas Flint Hills. Intake of sericea lespedeza by grazing beef cattle is poor due to the ...
