  • Smith, E.F.; Richardson, D.; Perry, H.B. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1966)
    This test was to determine if sorghum grain could completely replace prairie hay in a ration for calves being fed for limited growth. Intake of grain was restricted to supply approximately the same amount of energy consumed ...
  • Smith, E.F.; Anderson, K.L.; DeGeer, C.V. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1966)
    This experiment was to determine the effect of different stocking rates, of deferred grazing, and of pasture burning on cattle performance, productivity of pastures, and range condition as determined by plant population ...
  • Perry, H.B.; Larson, G.H.; Lipper, R.I.; Smith, E.F.; Boren, Fred W. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1966)
    Each of two lots was 24’ x 92’, one completely surfaced with concrete; the other, soil except for a 24’ x 16’ concrete feeding floor where the cattle stood to eat from a fence line feeder.
  • Smith, E.F.; Richardson, D.; Deyoe, C.W. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1966)
    The finishing ration for yearling steers should contain a minimum of about 10% protein. Sorghum grain frequently contains 10% protein; this test was to determine if such sorghum grain meets protein requirements. The ...
  • DeGeer, C.V.; Hall, M.C.; Smith, E.F. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1966)
    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, 1966)
    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.; Williams, G.; Smith, E.F.; Loper, D.C.; Adepoju, A.; Harbers, L.H.; Cox, R.F.; Boren, Fred W. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1966)
    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 ...
  • Richardson, D.; Smith, E.F.; Perry, H.B.; Dunn, L.L.; Harbers, L.H. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1966)
    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, 1966)
    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 ...
  • Hall, M.C.; Smith, E.F.; Spies, H.G. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1966)
    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, 1966)
    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 ...
