  • Cochran, R.C.; Towne, G.; Olson, K. C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-09-10)
    A 16-band multispectral radiometer (MSR) was used to measure the amount of forage biomass present on several dates in native tallgrass prairie pastures during the 1992 to 1994 growing seasons. Reflectance data ...

    Corn and forage sorghum silages were stored in pilot-scale silos for 180 days, and dry matter (DM) and organic matter (OM) recoveries and estimated OM recovery were measured at three depths within the top 3 ft. of ...
  • Dickerson, J.T.; Bolsen, K.K.; Brent, B.E.; Lin, C.; Boyer, John E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-10-14)
    Corn and forage sorghum silages were stored in pilot-scale silos for 180 days, and dry matter (DM) and organic matter (OM) recoveries and estimated OM recovery were measured at three depths within the top 3 ft. of ...
  • Dickerson, J.T.; Niwa, Y.; Bolsen, K.K.; Brent, B.E.; Lin, C.; Bradford, J.E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-11-02)
    Effects of covering, time, and depth from the surface on the rate and extent of top spoilage losses in alfalfa silages stored in horizontal silos were studied under pilot- and farm-scale conditions. Covering silages ...
  • Trater, C.M.; Hunt, Melvin C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-08-04)
    Steaks from 12 loins were used to determine the best time and temperature combinations for blooming (development of a bright-red color) of the longissimus muscle at 2, 14, and 26 days postmortem. The lowest temperature ...
  • McKee, M.; Evans, J.D.; Schalles, R.R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-03-11)
    Twenty-six Angus, Hereford, and Shorthorn bull calves were started on feed November 16, 1970, to study differences in protein content of rations. The bulls were from 184 to 302 days old. They were randomly assigned within ...
  • Anderson, S.; Brandt, Robert T., Jr. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-12-01)
    A 60-day growth trial with 170 exotic crossbred steers (avg. wt. 626 lbs) was conducted to assess the value of raw soybeans in silage-based diets. Protein supplements were based on 1) urea, 2) urea plus soybean oil (SBO), ...
  • Cranwell, C.D.; Simms, D.D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-10-14)
    Three hundred nine feedlots were mailed questionnaires to ascertain the types of recordkeeping systems currently being used to monitor health programs and FDA-specified treatment withdrawal times. Microcomputer ...
  • Sindt, J.J.; Montgomery, Sean P.; Farran, T.B.; Drouillard, James S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-08-23)
    Steam-flaked corn samples were used in a series of experiments to determine if refractive index could be used as a rapid, inexpensive method to predict starch availability. Results were best when samples were incubated ...
  • Coblentz, W.K.; Fritz, J.O.; Bolsen, K.K.; Cochran, R.C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-09-10)
    The relationships between storage time and several chemical indices for forage quality were established for alfalfa hay baled at two moisture levels (29.9 and 19.7%) in conventional and laboratory bale s made at 1.0, ...
  • White, J.; Bolsen, K.; Kirch, B. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-11-22)
    Results from two trials evaluating 11 forage sorghums as silage crops indicated that silage quality traits of voluntary intake, digestibility, and crude protein content were linearly associated with the agronomic ...
  • Simms, D.D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-10-05)
    The performance of bulls (n = 656 for Angus and n = 1343 for Simmental) at the Beloit and Potwin bulls tests from 1989 to 1992 were compared to their expected progeny differences (EPDs). In general, correlations between ...
  • Pacheco, L.A.; Jaeger, John R.; Bormann, Jennifer; Olson, K. C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2011-03-30)
    Ultrasound is widely used in seed stock production, commercial operations, and in feed yards to predict carcass merit. It also has been used to assess the value of individuals as parents in the seed stock industry. ...
  • Patterson, D.J.; Corah, L.R.; Brethour, J.R.; Negus, W.R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-12-01)
    Records of age at puberty (AAP) and postpartum interval to estrus (PPI) for heifers calving first at 2 years of age were used to determine the relationship between the two reproductive parameters. In Brahman x Hereford ...
