  • Ames, D.R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-03-04)
    Two winter trials have indicated that protein can be removed from growing rations during cold weather without lowering average daily gain. Cattle consumed 0.29 and 0.33 lb/hd/da (0.11 and 0.15 kg/hd/da) less protein supplement ...
  • Bolsen, K.; Dikeman, Michael E.; Riley, Jack G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-03-04)
    Four combinations of low (LE), moderate (ME) and high (HE) energy rations were fed to growing and finishing steers. The four treatments were: LE-ME; LE-HE; ME-ME and ME-HE. All steers were more efficient during the growing ...
  • Ilg, H.; Bolsen, K.; Dikeman, Michael E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-02-09)
    Growing rations containing forage sorghum silage (FSS) or equal amounts of FSS and alfalfa haylage were fed to crossbred steer calves for 112 days. Steers consumed more of the FSS + haylage but rate and efficiency of ...
  • Young, B.; Smith, R.; Bolsen, K.; Ilg, H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-12-14)
    Dry rolled corn, ensiled high moisture corn, and high moisture corn that was rolled and ensiled with urea or left whole and ensiled with urea were compared in two cattle trials. Dry corn gave the poorest cattle performance; ...
  • Bolsen, K.; Chyba, Leslie J.; Ibbetson, W. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-03-04)
    In growing rations containing fescue hay, micronized corn + urea-liquid gave: (1) 20.5% faster gains and 11.5% more efficient gains than cracked corn + urea-liquid and (2) similar rate and efficiency of gains as cracked ...
  • Bolsen, K.; Riley, Jack G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-03-04)
    Twenty-four individually fed heifers were used to evaluate four combinations of micronized or dry-rolled milo and soybean meal or urea supplements in prairie hay growing rations. Feeding 5 lbs. of micronized milo produced ...
  • Koons, L.; Riley, Jack G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-03-04)
    Twenty-four Kansas feedyards with 432,000 head capacity participated in a survey on operation procedures. The survey covered five areas: processing, animal health, rations, facilities, and marketing. Methods differed most ...
  • Ames, D.R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-02-18)
    Adjusting feedlot rations to match the thermal environment can reduce costs of gains. Adjusting protein content of rations does not change average daily gain but it improves protein efficiency.
  • 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 ...
  • Bolsen, K.; Ilg, H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-02-18)
    Two corn silages (34 to 36% DM) were made August 4 and 5, 1976; one was ensiled without additive (control), the other with Silo-Guard added at 1.5 lbs. per ton of fresh crop. Silos were opened after 68 days, and each ...
