    The hay used in this study consisted of good-quality, third-cutting alfalfa. It was cut, cured, and baled in the field and stored in a conventional hay shed. After having been in storage 2 months, a part of the alfalfa ...
  • Koch, B.A.; Smith, E.F.; Richardson, D.; Cox, R.F.; Boren, Fred W. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-10-14)
    Previous work at this station (Circular 297. p. 45-47) and at the Fort Hays Branch Experiment Station (Circular 322, p. 1-6) indicates that beef calves wintered on a daily ration of 1.75-2 pounds of ground sorghum grain, ...
  • Smith, E.F.; Richardson, D.; Baker, F.H.; Cathcart, R.B.; Cox, R.F. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2012-01-04)
    Forty good quality Hereford heifer calves were divided as equally as possible into four lots of 10 animals each. The heifers originated in the vicinity of Snyder. Texas. They were dehorned, vaccinated, and branded before ...
  • Aubel, C.E. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2012-01-30)
    In order to fatten pigs economically it is necessary to feed a large amount of concentrates in the form of grain and protein supplements. Corn is the grain usually employed. When the price of corn becomes very high ...
  • Baker, F.H.; Smith, E.F.; Cox, R.F.; Richardson, D. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-12-05)
    Thirty light yearling Hereford heifers were used in this experiment. The heifers were purchased in• the fall of 1953, used in wintering tests until May 1, 1954, and grazed on native grass pasture from May 1 to July 1, ...
  • Morrill, J.L. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2012-10-04)
    Proper nutrition and management are necessary to provide adequate numbers of healthy herd replacements. Satisfactory heifer programs must take into consideration care of the dam and characteristics of the newborn calf, ...
  • Smith, E.F. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2012-01-30)
    Livestock feeders have often called attention to the large amount of sorghum grains passing through cattle when the whole grain is fed. Small hard grain, when not broken by chewing, seems to escape digestion altogether. ...
  • Hancock, Joe D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-04-15)
    It has been recognized for many years that some sort of processing of soybeans will yield a product of superior nutritional value. As our understanding of the effects of different processing techniques increases, we will ...
  • Vargas, C.F.; Bradford, Barry J. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2012-09-07)
    Exogenous amylase, sucrose, or a combination was used in diets with reduced starch content. The trial was performed in 48 lactating Holstein cows, and milk yield, milk composition, and dry matter intake were measured. ...
  • Allee, G.L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-05-07)
    One hundred twenty-six weaned, crossbred pigs averaging 14 kg (31 lbs.) initially were used to evaluate the effects of various methods of processing sorghum grain. Processing methods evaluated were: pelleting, extruding, ...
  • 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 ...
  • Dunham, James R. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2012-09-07)
    A computer program was developed for analyzing DHI records to evaluate potential losses from 1) reproduction, 2) nutrition, 3) milk quality, and 4) genetics. Production-tested Kansas Holstein herds were grouped according ...
  • Marston, T.T.; Yauk, D.O. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-08-06)
    Native grass samples were collected monthly for five years and analyzed for nutrient content. Crude protein and ADF content indicate that grass quality is highest in May and June, then steadily declines until October. ...
  • Menzies, C. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-05-04)
    Research has provided the basis for improving production of quantity and quality of lamb and wool. Knowledge obtained concerning improved breeding, feeding, management and disease control practices has been used to increase ...
  • Cvetkovic, B.; Shirley, John E.; Brouk, Michael J. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-12-01)
    Twenty-four lactating Holstein cows were used to determine the production response to the inclusion of brown seaweed in the basal diet during summer heat stress. Cows were blocked by lactation number, days in milk, and ...
  • Davis, Duane L.; Schalles, R.R.; Kiracofe, G.; Good, D.L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-03-04)
    Winter nutrition requirements for beef cows grazing native tallgrass range in the Flint Hills were studied from 1968 through 1973. Three lb. milo was a better supplement to the basic ration of 3 lb. alfalfa hay than 1 ...
  • Keeler, G.L.; Tokach, Michael D.; Nelssen, Jim L.; Goodband, Robert D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-04-08)
    KSU Lean Gain Assessment is a new program developed at Kansas State University to allow producers to assess the actual lean gain of their pigs under normal farm conditions. The procedure is inexpensive and relatively simple ...
  • Allee, G.L.; Paulsen, Gary M. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-05-07)
    A growth trial and a digestion trial were conducted using 44 crossbred pigs (initial average weight 40 pounds) to determine the nutritional value of pearl millet as a feedstuff for swine. The millet used contained 11.98% ...
  • Koch, B.A.; Smith, E.F.; Richardson, D.; Cox, R.F.; Ordoveza, A. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-10-31)
    There has long been evidence that forages produced on different types of soil in the same general area give significantly different results when fed to animals. Further information is needed on the composition and ...
  • Shirley, John E. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2012-10-04)
    The present surplus of dairy products has led to a decrease in farm-level milk receipts. Future reductions in the federal milk price support program, together with a predictable increase in feed grain and protein supplement ...
