  • Aubel, C.E. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-11-07)
    In many parts of Kansas sorghum grains are grown extensively. In previous feeding tests with hogs at this station, some sorghum grains gave excellent results compared with corn. In 1950 Westland milo and Midland milo ...
  • Aubel, C.E. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-11-07)
    This experiment was conducted in the summer of 1955 with spring pigs on pasture. Its object was Ito compare the quality of the two varieties of sudangrass. Two lots were fed shelled corn and a mixed animal and plant ...
  • Aubel, C.E. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-11-07)
    This experiment consisted of two lots of nine pigs each. Lot 1 pigs were fed free-choice shelled corn and a mixed protein supplement made up of 4 parts tankage, 4 parts soybean meal, 1 part linseed meal, and 1 part ...
  • Aubel, C.E. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-11-07)
    A second experiment was conducted with fall pigs in the dry lot. Two lots of pigs were used. One lot received the RQ-20 in the protein mixture at the rate of 3 pounds to 600 pounds of supplement. The mixture was self-fed ...

  • Richardson, D.; Smith, E.F.; Menzies, C.S.; Cox, R.F. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-10-31)
    In a previous test, it was found that phosphoric acid could be used as a source of phosphorus for beef heifers on dry bluestem pasture. A phosphorus balance study with lambs also indicated efficient utilization of ...
  • Wheat, J.D.; Menzies, C.S.; Holland, L.A. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-10-31)
    This study was to determine the response of young guinea pigs to stilbestrol added to the basic ration of ground oats, tankage, bonemeal, ground alfalfa hay, and freshly-cut, green alfalfa. Eight litters of guinea pigs, ...
  • Smith, E.F.; Baker, F.H.; Cox, R.F.; Walker, G.L. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-10-31)
    The nutritive value of bluestem pasture usually declines after midsummer. This study is concerned with the effect of supplementing the grass after mid-summer with protein to determine if it will profitably increase steer ...
  • Smith, E.F.; Baker, F.H.; Walker, G.L. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-10-31)
    The nutritive value of bluestem pasture usually declines rapidly after mid-summer. This test is an attempt to find ways to economically increase the rate of gain after mid-summer with small quantities of concentrate feed.
  • Richardson, D.; Smith, E.F.; Cox, R.F.; Baker, F.H. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-10-31)
    Stilbestrol, a synthetic compound which has a hormonelike effect when taken into the body, has been recognized as a growth-stimulating factor in beef cattle fattening rations. Most of the market cattle in Kansas are ...
  • Richardson, D.; Smith, E.F.; Cox, R.F. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-10-31)
    Twenty-seven Hereford steer calves were divided as equally as possible into three lots of 9 animals each. One lot received stilbestrol at the rate of 6 milligrams per head daily for the first 56 days. The rate was ...
  • Richardson, D.; Mackintosh, D.L.; Wheat, J.D.; Menzies, C.S.; Cox, R.F. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-10-31)
    The addition of stilbestrol to a high-energy fattening ration has consistently demonstrated its ability to increase rate of gain with older or heavier feeder cattle. At the time this test was initiated, there was ...
  • Smith, E.F.; Koch, B.A.; Cox, R.F.; Walker, G.L. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-10-31)
    Dry bluestem pasture has been used successfully several years at this station as a source of winter roughage for steer calves that are to be grazed during the summer and sold off grass as feeder or stocker yearlings. ...
