  • Roberts, H. A. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-08-02)
    Flavor control in market milk begins on the farm and continues through the processing plant and into the home of the consumer. Flavor control is directly or indirectly related to the health of the cow, the feeding of ...

    Mature, crossbred beef cows (n = 87 in 1990-91, n = 84 in 1991-1992) were used to determine the effects of protein supplementation to cows fed ammoniated wheat straw during late gestation. Treatments included: 1) Control ...
  • Fike, G.D.; Simms, D.D.; Cochran, R.C.; Brandt, Robert T., Jr.; Vanzant, E.S.; Kuhl, Gerry L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-10-05)
    Sixteen ruminally fistulated steers (avg wt. = 998 lb) were used in a 30-day conventional digestion trial to examine the effects of protein supplementation on intake and digestion of ammoniated wheat straw. Steers ...
  • Peters, C.W.; Larson, Robert L.; Corah, L.R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-10-05)
    Melengestrol acetate (MGA®) and prostaglandin F2α (PG; Lutalyse®) were used to synchronize estrus in 757 yearling, virgin, beef heifers on six commercial ranches. Heifers were inseminated artificially (AI) 12 h ...
  • Taylor, R.K.; Mahanna, W.C.; Blasi, Dale A.; Maxwell, Thomas Mark; Shroyer, James P. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-10-05)
    Eleven large, round, alfalfa bales were treated with Pioneer® Brand 1155 Alfalfa Hay Inoculant and nine bales were untreated. The initial baling moistures were 14.1% (low) or 17.6% (medium). No significant differences were ...
  • Stark, C.R.; Hines, Robert H.; Behnke, Keith C.; Hancock, Joe D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-04-02)
    Two experiments were conducted to determine the effects of diet form (meal vs pellet) and amount of fines in pelleted feed on growth performance of nursery and finishing pigs. One hundred twenty-six weanling pigs, with an ...
  • Freeman, A.S.; Coffey, K.P. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-10-05)
    One hundred twenty-six crossbred steers and sixty-three crossbred heifers (704 lb BW) were used to evaluate the effects of energy supplementation on animal performance during grazing of endophyte-infected tall fescue ...
  • Owen, K.Q.; Dritz, Steven S.; Tokach, Michael D.; Goodband, Robert D.; Nelssen, Jim L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-03-26)
    A total of 290 early-weaned pigs (initially 7.6 lb and 10.5 d of age) was used to evaluate various levels of spray-dried porcine plasma. Pigs were assigned to one of five experimental diets with either 5, 7.5, 10, 12.5, ...
