  • DeGeer, C.V.; Hall, M.C.; Smith, E.F. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-04-28)
    The 66 heifers used were good to choice grade Herefords purchased near Fort Davis, Texas, and assigned to treatments on a random weight basis. They were rotated among pastures to minimize pasture differences during the ...
  • Richardson, D.; Smith, E.F.; Harbers, L.H.; Lebdosoekojo, R.S. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-04-28)
    Sixty Hereford steer calves averaging 440 pounds each from Warner’s Ranch in Rice County were wintered on sorghum silage, 1pound soybean oil meal and sorghum grain. Thirty received 4 pounds grain per head daily and 30 ...
  • Richardson, D.; Banbury, Evans E.; Erhart, A.B. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-04-28)
    This is a progress report on the fourth test to measure differences in the performance of beef steers in various parts of Kansas due to location, soil climate, rainfall and/or local food. Forty-either Hereford steers calves ...
  • Richardson, D.; Banbury, Evans E.; Erhart, A.B.; Williams, G.; Smith, E.F.; Loper, D.C.; Adepoju, A.; Harbers, L.H.; Cox, R.F.; Boren, Fred W. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-04-28)
    This is the third test to measure differences, if any, in performance of cattle in various parts of Kansas due to location, soil, climate, rainfall and/or local feed. Forty-eight Hereford steer calves from the same herd ...
  • Kropf, Donald H.; Mackintosh, D.L.; Menzies, C.S.; Harrison, D.; Anderson, L. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-04-28)
    This study was to determine quality factors most closely related to carcass grade, marbling in the rib eye muscle, and to tenderness. A total of 376 crossbred lambs were slaughtered over 4 years at an approximate live ...
  • Richardson, D.; Smith, E.F.; Perry, H.B.; Dunn, L.L.; Harbers, L.H. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-04-28)
    Americans consume large quantities of meat. An increasing population will demand more production to maintain present consumption rates. Protein is an essential nutrient for all animals. The simple-stomached animals (pigs, ...
  • Richardson, D.; Smith, E.F. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-04-28)
    It is generally recognized that a readily available source of energy (preferably grain) must be in the ration for efficient synthesis of protein from nonprotein nitrogen. Therefore, nonprotein nitrogen is used primarily ...
  • Menzies, C.S. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-04-28)
    In a previous test (Livestock Feeder’s Day Bulletin 473) adding 10% animal fat to a ration containing 45% alfalfa hay did not affect rate of gain but materially improved feed efficiency and lowered cost per unit gain. This ...
  • Hall, M.C.; Smith, E.F.; Spies, H.G. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-04-28)
    Two primary objectives of this test were to: (1) Compare dehydrated alfalfa with soybean oil meal as a winter supplemental feed on bluestem pasture for heifer calves to be bred shortly after the winter feeding ...
  • Smith, E.F.; Ward, G.M.; Richardson, D.; Perry, H.B. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-04-28)
    This experiment was to determine the value of sorghum grain, whole and ground, added to sorghum silage at 15% of the forage green weight at ensiling. The design was as follows: Treatment 1-No grain. Treatment 2-Ground ...
