  • Good, D. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1963)
    America owes a great deal of the founders of the Hereford, Angus and Shorthorn breeds of beef cattle, the dominant U.S. beef breeds. Early Scotch and English breeders in developing the beef breeds aimed to breed cattle ...
  • Smith, E.F.; Richardson, D.; Westmeyer, H.W.; Boren, Fred W. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1963)
    This test compares steer weight gains on four bluestem pastures to determine whether differences among the pastures might influence steer performance. Other than being in different pastures, all steers were treated and fed ...
  • Smith, E.F.; Anderson, K.L.; Drake, C.L.; Boren, Fred W. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1963)
    This experiment was designed 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 ...
  • Drake, C.L.; Smith, E.F.; Richardson, D.; Tsien, W.S. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1963)
    This experiment was designed to evaluate the desirability of supplementing bluestem pasture as indicated in the title. Forty Hereford steer calves were divided into four lots of 10 each and fed the following rations per ...
  • Smith, E.F.; Richardson, D.; Cox, R.F.; Boren, Fred W. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1963)
    Previous work (Bulletin 447) indicated that sorghum grain fattening rations supplemented with 0.5 pound per head per day of soybean oil meal produced gains minimal in efficiency and carcasses equal to those from heifers ...
  • Smith, E.F.; Richardson, D.; Fairbanks, G.E.; Boren, Fred W. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1963)
    This feeding trial was to determine the effects of various field-conditioned alfalfa hays on the winter performance of heifer calves. Second-cutting alfalfa was field-conditioned or processed as follows: 1. Control-mowed, ...
  • Smith, E.F.; Richardson, D.; Fairbanks, G.E.; Boren, Fred W. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1963)
    This is the third year of an experiment designed to investigate factors that affect the feeding value of sorghum silage. Data reported in Circular 383, 1960-61, indicated that almost without exception, average daily gain, ...
  • Smith, W.H.; Wheat, J.D.; Spies, H.G. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1963)
    The purebred Shorthorn cattle breeding program was continued during 1962 without modification of breeding plans. Inbreeding was continued in the two lines. The Wernacre Premier line is in its firth generation and the Mercury ...
  • Richardson, D.; Tsien, W.S. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1963)
    Crude protein, or protein as the term is commonly used, represents all nitrogen-containing compounds in the feed. True protein is that portion of the protein which has been formed by the combining of amino acids. The value ...
  • Smith, E.F.; Richardson, D.; Kramer, J.E.; Boren, Fred W. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1963)
    The 60 steer and heifer calves, six steers and four heifers per lot, used in this experiment, were good to choice grade Herefords from near Fort Davis, Texas, and were assigned on a random-weight basis to their treatments. ...
  • Smith, E.F.; Richardson, D.; Drake, C.L.; Boren, Fred W. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1963)
    The 40 heifer calves, 10 per lot, used in this experiment were good to choice Herefords from near Fort Davis, Texas, and were assigned on a random weight basis to their treatments.
  • Richardson, D.; Smith, E.F.; Kingsley, K.; Boren, Fred W. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1963)
    Hereford yearling steers in this test were used in a previous bluestem pasture grazing test. After the grazing test was completed, they were assigned to six lots of 10 animals each on the basis of weight and uniformity to ...
