  • Riley, Jack G.; Bolsen, K.K.; Good, D.L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-03-11)
    Two trials using 200 mixed breed steers were conducted to determine effects of 0,3, 6, or 12-ounce drenches of Adapted Rumen Microorganisms (ARM) on subsequent feedlot performance. An 85 percent concentrate ration was ...
  • Schalles, R.R.; Bolsen, K.; Dikeman, Michael E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 2010-12-15)
    No differences were found in total feed energy required to produce a pound of retail cuts between breeds or management systems. However, across breeds, faster gaining steers were more efficient. When yardage, facilities, ...
  • Simms, D.D.; Schalles, R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-12-14)
    The comparative growth-promoting value of Compudose, Ralgro, Ralgro + Ralgro reimplant, and Synovex-C + Synovex-C reimplant was evaluated on five Kansas ranches with 674 suckling steer calves in seven trials conducted ...
  • Myers, S.M.; Dikeman, Michael E.; Riley, Jack G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-02-18)
    Analysis of traditional and later-maturing cattle types fed under accelerated (placed directly on the finishing ration) and conventional (back grounded on a growing ration before finishing) system, indicated large differences ...
  • Smith, E.F.; Owensby, Clenton E.; Swanson, B.W.; McKendrick, J.D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-03-17)
    This experiment was to determine the effect of increased early summer stocking and burning on cattle performance, productivity of pastures and range condition as determined by plant population changes. Early stocking ...
  • Bolsen, K.; Ilg, H.; Smith, R.; Hoover, J.; Axe, D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-12-10)
    Cattle fed drought-stressed corn silage gained about 10% slower but were just as efficient as cattle fed irrigated corn silage. Because the irrigated corn out yielded the drought corn (17.4 VS. 8.2 tons per acre), the ...
  • Simms, D.D.; Odde, Kenneth G.; Corah, L.R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-01-27)
    In three field trials, we removed calves from 187 beef cows for 48 hours at the beginning of the breeding season to determine the effect on the cows' cycling activity, conception rate, and pregnancy rate. When calves ...
  • Lomas, Lyle W. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-12-14)
    Feeding actaplanin in a loose mineral mix or twice weekly in a supplement significantly improve gains of grazing steers. The greatest improvement in performance was found with average daily actaplanin intakes of 255 or 257 ...
  • Lomas, Lyle W. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-01-27)
    Steers fed 100 mg or 200 mg of Bovatec per head daily while grazing bromegrass gained 16.4% and 23.9% faster, respectively, during 112 days of grazing than did controls.
  • Brazle, F. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-12-03)
    Decoquinate (Deccox®), when added to the diet of newly-arrived calves, reduced (P<.05) the number of treatments required per animal in three experiments involving 551 cattle. Feed conversion was improved in two of the three ...
  • Corah, L.R.; Riley, Jack G.; Pope, Ronald V. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-01-27)
    Steers fed 200 mg of Lasalocid per day while grazing bromegrass pasture gained 7.6% faster than non-medicated controls; however, this difference was not statistically significant.
  • Corah, L.; Riley, Jack G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-12-14)
    Lasalocid (Bovatec®) improved daily gain of replacement heifers by .20 lb per day and reduced the time to first heat in heifers fed on a lower level of energy, but had no significant affect in the higher energy group. ...
  • Brazle, F. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-11-12)
    Feeding supplements containing an antibiotic or ionophore improved stocker gains by .06 to .26 lb per head daily. A combination of Bovatec and Aureomycin in the mineral mixture improved (P<.08) steer gains over feeding ...
  • LaTourell, D.; Kuhl, Gerry L.; Drake, C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-01-27)
    Implanting heifers initially and mid-way through the finishing period with Ralgro and Synovex-H in any combination produced similar weight gains. Daily gains of cattle implanted with Ralgro + Ralgro, Ralgro + Synovex-H, ...
  • Brazle, F.K.; Blecha, Frank; Riley, Jack G.; McLaren, J.B. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-12-10)
    Bull and steer calves of mixed breed type were shipped from Newport, Tennessee to Manhattan, Kansas. Bull calves were castrated on arrival at Manhattan. Calves were classified into four breed-types as follows: (1) black, ...
  • Laudert, S.; Nelson, R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-01-27)
    Heifer calves grazing winter wheat pasture and implanted with Synovex-H or Ralgro gained 18 and 14% faster (P<.01) respectively, than heifers not implanted. Weight gains were similar for both implants.
  • Corah, L.R.; McKee, M.; Schalles, R.R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-03-04)
    One hundred twenty-seven suckling calves were allotted to one of three treatments: (1) Control group - not implanted (2) Implanted (Ralgro) once during sucking period (3) Implanted (Ralgro) twice during sucking period ...
  • Corah, L.; Kimple, K.; McKee, M.; Riley, Jack G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-03-04)
    Both steer and heifer calves gain significantly (P<.05) faster on summer pasture with growth-promoting implants than calves not implanted. Ralgro, Synovex-S, and Synovex-H were tested, with no significant advantage for ...
  • Brazle, F.K.; Blecha, Frank; McLaren, J.B.; Riley, Jack G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-12-10)
    We purchased 264 calves (125 bulls and 139 steers) in Tennessee and transported them to Kansas to evaluate the effects of levamisole injections and potassium supplementation, before and after transit, and feedlot receiving ...
  • Harrison, K.F.; Fink, G.; Riley, Jack G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-03-04)
    one growing trial and two finishing trials we used 264 steers. Rations containing 13.2% crude protein during the 105-day growing trial significantly (P<.05) improved rate of gain gain compared with 11.3% crude protein ...
