    Agronomic and cattle performance traits were measured for eight silages produced in 1991. The silages were: irrigated Pioneer 3377 corn; dryland (early-planted) DeKalb 535 corn; irrigated and dryland DeKalb DK 42Y grain ...
  • Kirch, B.; Hamma, S.; Bolsen, K.; Ilg, H.; Hoover, J. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-12-03)
    Four trials were conducted to determine the feeding value of whole-plant forage and grain sorghum silages. In general, growing cattle fed grain sorghum hybrids (NK2778, Funk's 550, DeKalb 42Y, DeKalb E67) out performed ...
  • Kirch, B.; Hamma, S.; Bolsen, K.; Hoover, J.; Riley, Jack G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-11-22)
    Two trials were conducted to determine the feeding value of whole-plant forage sorghum, grain sorghum, and corn silages, with and without 25% rolled grain sorghum added to the ration. In general, growing cattle fed corn ...
  • Bolsen, K.; Ilg, H.; Hinds, M.; Hoover, J.; Pope, Ronald V. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 2010-12-15)
    Four whole-plant silages produced in 1981 and 1982 were evaluated using 176 calves in two growing trials. Based on comparative rates and efficiencies of gain, feeding values were 115, 100, 78.5, and 62 for the cornlage, ...
  • Smith, R.; Bolsen, K.; Ilg, H.; Hoover, J.; Dickerson, J. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-12-10)
    Three sorghum hybrid types were used to make six silages in the fall of 1983. Eight silage rations were compared using 160 steer calves in an 84-day growing trial. Using forage sorghum silage as a base (100), grain sorghum ...
  • Smith, R.; Bolsen, K.; Hoover, J. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-12-08)
    Four trails were conducted to determine the effects of processing (rolling before feeding, with rolls set to break 95% of the kernels) and stage of maturity at harvest on the nutritive value of whole-crop grain sorghum ...
  • Obuz, E.; Kropf, Donald H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-08-06)
    Ten beef semitendinosus muscles were divided into three sections, which were randomly assigned to one of three blade tenderization treatments (control-zero, one, or two times). Blade-tenderized muscles were cooked in ...
  • Ames, D.R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-03-11)
    Cattle hides were exposed to cold-wind combinations ranging from -10 ̊F to 35 ̊F and 0 to 35 mph. Heat flow through hides (including hair) was measured and plotted as a function of wind velocity. Prediction equations for ...
  • Schalles, R.R.; Drake, C.L.; Kiracofe, G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-03-17)
    Cow productivity on four supplemental winter feeding levels were compared over 2 years. Cattle were grazed on native bluestem year round. Cows calved between February 15 and May 5. Only records (104) of cows that raised ...
  • Davis, Duane L.; Schalles, R.R.; Drake, C.L.; Kiracofe, G.; Brent, B.E.; McKee, M.; Evans, Jack (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-03-08)
    Energy appears to be the limiting factor in the rations studied. Three lbs. of milo was superior to 1 1/2 lbs. of soybean meal when date of breeding was considered. In the second trial 3 lbs. of alfalfa and 6 lbs. of milo ...
  • Smith, E.F.; Woolfolk, J.S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-03-11)
    One hundred and sixty- three black steers averaging 402 pounds were grazed from May 2 to October 3, 1972, on native bluestem pasture. They were assembled by a buying firm in Memphis, Tenn., and delivered March, 1972, ...
  • Geske, J.M.; Schalles, R.R.; Zoellner, K.O. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-09-10)
