  • Schlegel, Ethan R.; Oleen, Brandon E.; Hollenbeck, William R.; Montgomery, Sean P.; Vahl, Christopher I.; Blasi, Dale A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2013-03-19)
    In many instances, due in part to price per unit of energy and proximity to production, Kansas beef producers have the opportunity to incorporate grain-processing byproducts such as wet distillers grains with solubles ...
  • Lawrence, S.J.; Kreider, S.E.; Higgins, James J.; Allen, L.; Epp, M.P.; Ritter, P.; Blasi, Dale A.; Dikeman, Michael E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2013-03-19)
    The majority of cattle fed in commercial feedlots are processed and placed into pens without sorting into groups of uniform size and body condition. As a result of the variability in weight and condition, this management ...
  • Van Cleef, E.H.C.B.; Uwituze, S.; Van Bibber-Krueger, C.L.; Miller, K.A.; Drouillard, James S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2013-03-19)
    Crude glycerin has increased in availability as a feedstock for cattle as a result of expansion of the biodiesel industry in the United States. This byproduct, when ingested by cattle, is fermented by ruminal bacteria ...
  • Hill, Scott L.; Pulley, Stephanie Leeann; Olson, K. C.; Jaeger, John R.; Breiner, Ryan M.; Lamb, G.C.; Stevenson, Jeffrey S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2013-03-19)
    Fixed-time artificial insemination is an effective management tool that reduces the labor associated with more conventional artificial insemination programs requiring detection of estrus. The 7-day CO-Synch + controlled ...
  • Miller, K.A.; Van Bibber-Krueger, C.L.; Drouillard, James S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2013-03-19)
    The cost of roughages is relatively high in comparison to their contribution of nutrients to feedlot diets. Widespread drought has affected roughage supplies in the cattle-feeding regions of the United States, further ...
  • Hill, S.E.; Oleen, Brandon E.; Hollenbeck, William R.; Vahl, Christopher I.; Blasi, Dale A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2013-03-19)
    Stocker cattle grazing pastures during the summer months face challenges due to horn flies, which can result in reduced weight gains and less efficient use of forages. One strategy for controlling horn flies is ...
  • Alvarado, C.A.; Aperce, C.C.; Van Cleef, E.; Miller, K.A.; Van Bibber-Krueger, C.L.; Scarpino, F.; Klamfoth, D.; Drouillard, James S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2013-03-19)
    Omega-3 fatty acids are essential nutrients for humans, but dietary intake of these nutrients by many Americans is inadequate due to low consumption of omega-3-rich foods such as fish, walnuts, and flaxseed. In contrast, ...
  • Miller, N.; Breiner, Ryan M.; Taul, Tom; Tucker, Sharon K.; Fike, Karol E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2013-03-19)
    Age at puberty is a crucial factor influencing a young bull’s ability to pass a breeding soundness examination (BSE) at a year of age, and reducing that age may prove beneficial to beef producers. For beef females, ...
  • Johnson, Sandra K.; Ward, M.A.; Swanson, O.L.; Perry, G.A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2013-03-19)
    Protocols used for fixed-timed artificial insemination strive to synchronize growth of follicular waves and commonly do so by administration of gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) at the beginning of the treatment. The ...
  • Bailey, E.A.; Preedy, G.W.; Pacheco, L.A.; Jaeger, John R.; Waggoner, Justin W.; Olson, K. C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2013-03-19)
    Early weaning can be used by cow-calf producers to reduce stocking rates by 20% to 30% during drought. Ranchers may be reluctant to wean early because of reduced calf weights and reduced revenue compared with weaning ...
  • Ward, M.A.; Johnson, Sandra K. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2013-03-19)
    Drought, defined as less than 75% of normal rainfall, occurs once every 5 to 7 years in Northwest Kansas. Record widespread drought conditions throughout the Midwest and Western United States in 2012 resulted in an early ...
  • Bennett, B.W.; Waggoner, Justin W.; Jaeger, John R.; Sexten, Andrea K.; Olson, K. C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2013-03-19)
    Feed and supplement costs and the expenses associated with delivery of winter supplements account for a large proportion of the total operating expenditures for cow-calf producers. Cattle grazing low-quality dormant ...
  • Siverson, A.V.; Oleen, Brandon E.; Titgemeyer, Evan C.; Montgomery, Sean P.; Blasi, Dale A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2013-03-19)
    Newly arrived feedlot cattle present numerous challenges and are often considered to be the most difficult type of fed cattle to handle. Receiving cattle typically are highly stressed and have had feed withheld for a ...
  • Miller, K.A.; Van Bibber-Krueger, C.L.; Aperce, C.C.; Alvarado, C.A.; Drouillard, James S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2013-03-19)
    High-concentrate diets consisting of cereal grains and grain byproducts have high energy density compared with forage-based diets. To avoid digestive disorders, cattle must be adapted to concentrates, which often entails ...

    Bovine respiratory disease is the leading cause of cattle mortalities in U.S. feedlots. In addition to costs associated with death loss and medical treatments, cattle affected by respiratory disease typically have ...
  • Van Cleef, E.H.C.B.; Uwituze, S.; Alvarado, C.A.; Miller, K.A.; Van Bibber-Krueger, C.L.; Aperce, C.C.; Higgins, James J.; Drouillard, James S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2013-03-19)
    Crude glycerin is the principal byproduct of biodiesel production. The raw feedstocks, animal fats and vegetable oils, yield approximately 90 lb of biodiesel and 10 lb of crude glycerin for each 100 lb of input. When ...
