  • Harrison, K.F.; Good, D.L.; Riley, Jack G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-03-04)
    A 189-day trial used 280 mixed-breed steers to study effects of various protein levels in finishing steer rations. Rations containing 15.4 or 13.4% crude protein significantly improved rate of gain during the first 42 ...
  • Simms, D.D.; Bolze, R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-12-10)
    In order to evaluate whether a 72 mg Ralgro® dosage would improve growth response over 36 mg, 260 suckling steer calves on tow Kansas ranches were assigned to five implant treatments. In trial 1, 72 mg Ralgro® increased ...
  • Brandt, Robert T., Jr.; Anderson, S.J.; Elliott, J.K. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-11-02)
    Synovex-S (SS) and STEER-oid (SO) were compared in a 122-d finishing study. No differences were observed over the entire study for animal performance or carcass traits. However, in the final period (d 91-122), ...
  • Laudert, S.; Eder, J.; Kuhl, Gerry L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-01-27)
    Compudose implanted feedlot steers performed similarly to steers initially implanted with Ralgro and reimplanted with Synovex-S. Steers lost 2.9% of the Compudose implants.
  • Munson, R.D.; Thomson, Daniel U.; Reinhardt, Christopher D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2012-04-03)
    Bovine respiratory disease is the most common and costly disease in the beef industry. Calves affected by bovine respiratory disease have a 53-lb decrease in finished weights and decreased quality grades compared with ...
  • Bolze, R.P.; Corah, L.R.; Pruitt, R.J. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-12-14)
    Three hundred and seventy four heifers from two Kansas ranches were used to determine if a single Ralgro implant given either at two months of age or at weaning would influence pelvic development and subsequent calving ...
  • Brazle, F.K.; Cook, D.L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-09-10)
    Three hundred-ninety crossbred heifers were allotted randomly to one of three implant treatments: 1) Implus- H®, 2) Synovex-H®, and 3) Ralgro®. The heifers grazed native grass pastures for 122 days, stocked at 4 acres ...
  • Brandt, Robert T., Jr.; Milton, C.T.; Owensby, Clenton E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-09-10)
    Results are presented from the first year of a 2-year study to evaluate the effects of grazing system (intensive-early stocking or IES vs season-long grazing or SLG) with or without a pasture-phase implant (Synovex-S®) on ...
  • Laudert, S.; Kuhl, Gerry L.; Walker, M. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-12-14)
    A one hundred and forty day field trial was conducted to evaluate the relative performance of steers implanted with Compudose, Ralgro and Synovex-S. Daily gains of cattle receiving a single initial implant were increased ...
  • Laudert, S.B.; Kuhl, Gerry L.; Edwards, A.J. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-12-03)
    Heifers that were flank-spayed plus rumen-ovarian autografted (FS+A) responded similarly to Ralgro®, Synovex-H®, and Synovex-S® implants on' pasture. Grazing heifers spayed by the Kimberling-Rupp technique also responded ...
  • Milton, C.T.; Brandt, Robert T., Jr.; Kuhl, Gerry L.; Anderson, P.T. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-09-09)
    Two hundred-sixteen Angus and Angus-cross steer calves (690 lb) were used in a 129- day finishing study to evaluate different implant strategies, including an experimental new implant for feedlot cattle that contains ...
  • DeBenedetti, R.; Kiracofe, G.H.; Hultine, V.; McKee, R.M.; Schalles, R.R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-03-04)
    Twenty-six Polled Hereford and Simmental-cross heifers that had not cycled by the beginning of the breeding season were given an ear implant and injected with an estrogen-progestogen compound. The implant was removed after ...
  • Cranwell, C.D.; Simms, D.D.; Brethour, J.R.; Unruh, John A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-10-15)
    Open, cull beef cows fed a high concentrate ration for 28 or 56 days and implanted with Finaplix-H®, Synovex-H®, or both had improved gain and feed efficiency compared to controls (nonimplanted cows). Changes ...
  • Simms, D.D.; Schwartz, F.L.; Corah, L.R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-01-27)
    Over a 3-year period (1976-1978), heifer calves either were not implanted or were implanted between 2 and 5 months of age. In 1977, the study also included heifers implanted at birth. Implanting at birth increased ...
  • Corah, L.R.; Spell, A.R.; Cook, D.L.; Butine, M.D.; Anderson, K.; Grieger, David M. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-09-02)
    This study evaluated the effect of implanting potential replacement heifers (n=548) with Component E-C® (10 mg of estradiol and 100 mg of progesterone) between 45 and 120 days of age or at weaning (200 days of age) ...
  • Riley, Jack G.; Pope, Ronald V. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-12-14)
    Finishing yearling beef steers were used to compare various implant programs in a 167-day trial. All implant programs increased daily gain ranging from 6.6 to 25.4% over non-implanted controls and improved feed efficiency ...
