  • Goldy, G.; Bolsen, K.; Riley, Jack G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-12-01)
    Homozygous yellow endosperm grain sorghum had no advantage in feeding value over heterozygous yellow endosperm hybrids (P>.05). A heterozygous yellow endosperm hybrid, Funk's 550, had larger kernels (P<.001) and when dry ...
  • Goldy, G.; Walters, T.; Lenssen, Andrew William; Riley, Jack G.; Posler, Gerry L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-12-03)
    For the 188 grain sorghum varieties studied, in vitro digestibilites were statistically similar, but there was a significant difference between the 12 production locations. Crude protein, calcium, and phosphorus levels ...
  • Harborth, K.W.; Marston, T.T.; Llewellyn, Donald A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-08-02)
    An experiment was conducted to determine if corn and grain sorghum dried distillers grains could be effective protein supplements for growing beef replacement heifers. Crossbred heifers (n=77) were individually fed 6 ...
  • McCollough, R.L.; Brent, B.E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-03-11)
    Nine hybrid sorghum grains representing hetero-yellow, all-waxy, white, part-waxy, and white endosperm were fed to finishing steers to determine digestibility. Hybrids were all planted on the same irrigated bottom field ...
  • Dalke, B.S.; Sonon, R.N. Jr.; Holthaus, D.L.; Bolsen, K.K.; Young, Matthew A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-09-08)
    This experiment was conducted to determine the effect of grain content on the nutritive value of whole-plant grain sorghum silage. Silage dry matter (DM), organic matter (OM), and crude protein (CP) contents increased ...
  • Kessen, T.J.; Simms, D.D.; Kuhl, Gerry L.; Drouillard, James S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-09-02)
    A 73-day growing study utilizing 203 crossbred steers (681 lb) and a digestion trial examined the effect o f sorghum grain particle size on rumen fermentation, ration digestibility, and performance of growing steers ...
  • Turlington, H.; Allee, G.; Riley, Jack G.; Pope, Ronald V. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-12-01)
    Grain sorghum officially graded as 39% damaged (sprouted) with 10% broken kernels or foreign material was fed to beef steers, growing swine, and broilers to compare its feeding value to that of normal grain sorghum. ...
  • Coffey, K.P.; Moyer, Joseph L.; Lomas, Lyle W.; Brazle, F.K. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-10-14)
    Eighty mixed breed steers (avg. wt. 560 lb.) were used to evaluate the effect on grazing gain and subsequent feedlot performance of different management options for steers early-intensively grazing Acremonium ...
  • Hunter, R.D.; Nutsch, T.; Titgemeyer, Evan C.; Drouillard, James S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-08-23)
    Five hundred fifty two steers were used in a growth experiment designed to evaluate the use of grain sorghum in a limit-feeding program. Dry-rolled corn, dry-rolled grain sorghum, steam-flaked grain sorghum, or ...
  • Dickerson, J.; Smith, R.; Bolsen, K.; Walter, T. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-12-10)
    Thirteen sorghum hybrids chosen to represent a range of sorghum types were evaluated in two separate trials. Each was harvested at three stages of grain development: milk to early-dough, late-dough, and hard-grain. Among ...
  • Dalke, B.S.; Bolsen, K.K.; Sonon, R.N. Jr.; Holthaus, D.L.; Young, Matthew A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-09-17)
    Three whole-plant sorghum silages, each with or without 25% added rolled grain sorghum were fed to six medium-framed, ruminally cannulated steers in a 6 × 6 Latin square design. The grain sorghum silage rations (DeKalb ...
  • Harbers, L.H.; Bolsen, K.K.; Hartadi, H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-10-15)
    Dry matter yield of grain sorghum alone averaged more than 1.0 ton per acre higher than that of intercropped grain sorghum-soybeans in both 1988 and 1989. All silage yields were lower in 1989 because of drought. ...
  • Posler, Gerry L.; Bolsen, K. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-03-04)
    The attempt to increase total forage TDN per acre by double-cropping was only moderately successful in 1975 and 1976. Limiting factors were relatively poor stands and extremely dry summer growing seasons.
  • Cochran, R.C.; Brandt, Robert T., Jr.; Vanzant, E.S.; Clary, E.M.; Owensby, Clenton E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-10-20)
    During the initial 3 years of a 4-year experiment, average daily gain tended to increase in direct proportion to increasing levels of grain sorghum supplementation (2.3, 2.5 and 2.7 lb gain per day for the control and ...
  • Cochran, R.C.; Brandt, Robert T., Jr.; Vanzant, E.S.; Clary, E.M.; Owensby, Clenton E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-11-02)
    During the first 2 yr of a 4-yr experiment, increasing the level of grain sorghum supplementation (from 2 to 4 Ibid) for steers managed within an intensive-early stocking program tended to increase average daily gain in ...
  • Dalke, B.S.; Sonon, R.N.; Gramlich, S.M.; Bolsen, K.K. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-10-05)
    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.; 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 ...
  • Vanderlip, R. L.; Schneider, L.R.; Bolsen, K.K. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-03-08)
    Last year in Kansas approximately 3.8 million acres produced 243 million bushels of grain sorghum plus a large amount of forage left in the field as a potential source of feed for livestock. The objective of this report ...
