  • Park, A. F.; Titgemeyer, Evan C.; Scheffel, Michael V.; Meyer, M. J.; Shirley, John E. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1999)
    Seventy-five Holstein cows were used in a randomized complete block design to determine the level of dietary protein required to support metabolic functions and maintain body reserves during the periparturient period and ...
  • Meyer, M. J.; Titgemeyer, Evan C.; Scheffel, Michael V.; Park, A. F.; Shirley, John E. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1999)
    Eighteen Holstein cows were used in six simultaneous 3×3 Latin squares to determine the value of extruded-expelled cottonseed meal with lint as a replacement for whole cottonseed in diets for lactating dairy cows. Diets ...
  • Isch, J. A.; Scheffel, Michael V.; Titgemeyer, Evan C.; Thomas, E. C.; Shirley, John E. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1999)
    One hundred Holstein heifers were used to examine the effects of monensin (Rumensin®) and lasalocid (Bovatec®) included in calf starter and grower diets. Heifers were assigned alternately at birth to a starter feed ...
  • Harner, Joseph P.; Smith, J. F.; Brouk, Michael J. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1999)
    Temperatures and humidities outside and inside freestall barns and cow respiration rates were monitored on three Kansas and two Nebraska commercial dairy farms during the summer of 1999. All farms had 4-row freestall ...
  • VanBaale, M. J.; Scheffel, Michael V.; Titgemeyer, Evan C.; Shirley, John E. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1999)
    Thirty-two Holstein cows were used in two 2×2 Latin squares with 28-day periods to evaluate the effect of including wet corn gluten feed in diets for lactating dairy cows. Wet corn gluten feed (WCGF) was fed to cows ...
  • Meyer, M. J.; Shirley, E. C.; Titgemeyer, Evan C.; Scheffel, Michael V.; Park, A. F. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1999)
    Twenty-four pluriparous Holstein cows were used in six 4×4 Latin squares to evaluate the value of extruded-expelled cottonseed meal (EECM) with lint as a source of rumen undegradable protein (RUP) for lactating dairy ...
  • Cartmill, J. A.; Rozell, Timothy G.; El-Zarkouny, S. Z.; Smith, J. F.; Stevenson, Jeffrey S. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1999)
    Cows exposed to heat stress before or after calving or both are prone to reduced fertility because of reduced expression of estrus and less embryonic survival if pregnant. Cows calving on three dairy farms during the ...
  • Harner, Joseph P.; Strahm, T.; Key, David V.; Strahm, T. L. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1999)
    Time requirements for loading a manure spreader and traveling to and from the field varied from 20 to 30 min per load. However, standardizing the data showed that 5 to 7 min were required per 1,000 gal (9,000 lb). ...
  • Strahm, T.; Harner, Joseph P.; Key, David V.; Murphy, James P. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1999)
    Nine concrete storage basins were sampled on Kansas dairies and analyzed for nutrient content of sand-laden dairy manure. The manure average 75% moisture content during the three sampling periods. The average total ...
  • Smith, J. F.; Harner, Joseph P.; Pulkrabek, B. J.; McCarty, D. T.; Brouk, Michael J.; Shirley, John E. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1999)
    Ninety-three multiparous Holstein cows averaging 130 days in milk (DIM) were utilized to evaluate three cooling treatments installed in separate pens of a four-row freestall barn in northeast Kansas during the summer ...
  • Smith, J. F.; Harner, Joseph P.; Pulkrabek, B. J.; McCarty, D. T.; Brouk, Michael J.; Shirley, John E. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1999)
    One hundred fifty-nine Holstein cows (66 primiparous and 93 multiparous) were assigned to each of three different cooling systems installed in two-row freestall barns on a northeast Kansas dairy. One barn was equipped ...
  • Cartmill, J. A.; El-Zarkouny, S. Z.; Lamb, G. C.; Stevenson, Jeffrey S. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1999)
    Synchronizing ovulation enables dairy producers to inseminate cows by appointment rather than after detected estrus. Three different, timed artificial insemination protocols using different combinations of prostaglan ...
