  • Wallace, J.O.; Reinhardt, Christopher D.; Thomson, Daniel U. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2009-12-07)
    The shipping and receiving period is one of the most stressful experiences during a calf’s lifetime. Stressors include weaning, commingling, transportation, processing, feed and water changes, and disease challenge placed ...
  • Schalles, R.R.; Harbers, L.H.; Smith, E.F.; Owensby, Clenton E.; Boggs, Don (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-03-04)
    Burning and fertilizing Bluestem pastures were evaluated by comparing performances of spring-calving cows and calves that grazed them. Two control-pastures were not burned or fertilized; two pastures were burned; and two ...
  • Kimple, K.; McKee, M.; Fink, G.; Conway, K. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-03-04)
    Performances of 125 commercial Hereford-cross and percentage Simmental calves were evaluated by comparing early weaning at 50 days of age (+25), nursing calves receiving a creep in drylot, and calves nursing in drylot ...
  • Lynch, J.M.; Houghton, P.L.; Corah, L.R.; Stokka, Gerald L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-09-02)
    In October, 1995, 3,565 head of freshly weaned, British-breed calves were received into a weaning facility in southwest Nebraska. Calves were determined to be preconditioned if they had received both viral an d ...
  • Warren, J.H.; Smith, E.F.; Schalles, R.R.; Berger, L.; Fink, G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-03-04)
    We found no advantage for creep feeding calves for either all summer or 37 days prior to weaning. All calves were with their dams on native pasture. Calves not creep fed or creep fed only 37 days before weaning were sick ...
  • 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 ...
  • Ward, S.; Odde, Kenneth G.; Kiracofe, G.; McKee, M. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-02-18)
    Weaning calves from cows that had not cycled after calving caused a higher percentage of cows to show estrous in the next 25 days than cows suckling calves. However, 78.3% of the nonsuckling cows had short cycles (7-10 ...
  • Bolte, J.W.; Olson, K. C.; Schmidt, Todd W.; White, Bradley J.; Milliken, George A.; Sproul, N.A.; Pacheco, L.A.; Thomas, M.D.; Jaeger, John R.; Thomson, Daniel U.; Larson, Robert L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2009-12-04)
    Bovine respiratory disease (BRD) is the most economically devastating feedlot disease. Risk factors associated with incidence of BRD include (1) stress associated with maternal separation, (2) stress associated with ...

    Bovine respiratory disease decreases profitability associated with cattle feeding. The cost of respiratory disease includes death loss, expenses associated with treatment, and reduced growth performance. Respiratory ...
  • Macek, M.J.; Iliff, J.W.; Schmidt, Todd W.; Pacheco, L.A.; Olson, K. C.; Jaeger, John R.; Thomson, Daniel U. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2011-03-17)
    Weaning and preconditioning programs are thought to be crucial to calf health and performance during the finishing period. The stress of maternal separation, changes in diet, environmental changes, and exposure to ...
  • Schalles, R.R.; Milleret, R.J.; McKee, M.; Olson, J.R.; Evans, Jack; Carnahan, D.L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-03-11)
    Respiratory diseases of weanling calves are a continuous problem for ranchers. Each case is estimated to represent a $10 to $20 loss through veterinary costs, decreased gains, and death losses. There is also some question ...
  • 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 ...
  • McKee, M.; Schalles, R.R.; Zoellner, K.O. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-03-17)
    Data on nine Simmental-Hereford cross calves (3 bulls and 6 females) from birth to 6 months of age was reported in Bulletin 536. The three bulls shared conditions with three Hereford, four Angus, and one Shorthorn bull. ...
  • Woolfolk, J.S.; Conway, K.; Schalles, R.R.; Smith, E.F. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-03-08)
    A mixture of 60% dehydrated alfalfa crumbles and 40% dry rolled sorghum grain was fed ad lib to calves 30 days before weaning. The calves ate an average of 2.6 lbs. per day and gained 0.32 lbs more per day average during ...
  • Drake, C.L.; Smart, L.I.; Smith, E.F. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-03-17)
    Two hundred weaning calves were received in two shipments and placed on experiment. The calves were weighed, ear tagged and tattooed as rapidly as possible after being received, and were treated as follows: Treatment ...
  • McKee, M.; Bolsen, K.K.; Conway, K.L.; Fink, G.; Riley, Jack G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-03-08)
    An 85-day, post weaning growth rate for 30 calves weaned at an average age of 110.5 days was compared with the growth rate of 30 calves nursing their mothers the same period. Average age of the nursing calves at the start ...
  • McKee, M.; Bolsen, K.K.; Schalles, R.R.; Conway, K.L.; Fink, G.; Riley, Jack G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-03-04)
    Growth rate of 38 calves after being weaned at an average of 91.6 days was compared with growing rate of 37 calves averaging 91.2 days of age and continuing to nurse their mothers the same period. Average daily gains ...

    Adding a medicated top dressing to a weaning calf ration did not reduce calf sickness, but increased weight gains the second and third weeks of a three-week weaning trial.
