    Eighty Angus × Hereford crossbred weanling heifers (548 lb) were used in a 2×2 factorial experiment to evaluate dietary energy concentration (NEg .51 vs .61 Mcal/lb) and intake restriction (to produce 1.25 and 2.0 lb/d gain). ...

    Sixteen ruminally fistulated steers were used to study the effects of supplemental alfalfa level (.25 or 1.0% body weight [BW]) and method of processing (hay or pellets) on wheat straw utilization. Response to increased ...

    To evaluate the effects of molybdenum (Mo)- and sulfur (S)- induced copper (Cu) deficiency, 99 prepubertal heifers were allotted into two groups. Treated heifers (n = 72) were fed a grass hay naturally high in Mo (Mo ...

    One hundred forty-four crossbred steers (850 lb) were used to evaluate the effects of physical form and level of average (15% CP) quality alfalfa on performance and carcass traits. Alfalfa hay had been harvested from ...
  • Beaty, J.L.; Cochran, R.C.; Vanzant, E.S.; Morrill, J.L.; Brandt, Robert T., Jr.; Johnson, D.E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-10-05)
    One hundred twenty-eight, pregnant, Angus × Hereford cows were used to determine whether response to altering frequency of winter range supplementation depends on the protein concentration in the supplements. Supplements ...
  • Brandt, Robert T., Jr.; Williams, J.E.; Jones, Timothy J. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-10-05)
    Twelve British and British crossed heifers fed whole shelled corn finishing diets were used in a 2 × 2 factorially arranged experiment to study the main effects of and interactions between feeding supplemental tallow ...
  • Brazle, F.K. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-10-14)
    In a 3-year study, crossbred steers averaging 585 lb were allotted to groups given either a control or zinc methionine-supplemented mineral mixture while grazing burned native pastures in early summer. The steers were ...
  • Brazle, F.K. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-10-05)
    Four hundred and ten mixed-breed heifers were intensively early grazed for 81 days on native tall grass pastures where dormant growth had been removed by either winter grazing or April burning. Heifers grazing the burned ...
  • Suazo, R.; Sonon, R.N.; Bolsen, K.K. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-10-05)
    In 1989, two Pioneer corn hybrids, 3377 and 3389, were grown under irrigation and harvested at 80% milk line kernel maturity. Voluntary intakes and ADF digestibilities were similar for all hybrid, inoculant, and ...
  • Pendergraft, J.S.; Arns, M.J.; Raub, R.H.; Bolsen, K.K.; Brazle, F.K. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-10-05)
    Fescue toxicity causes substantial production losses in sheep, cattle, and horses. These losses are attributed to an endophyte, Acremonium coenophialum. However, our results indicate that Quarter horse yearlings can ...
  • Sonon, R.N.; Dalke, B.S.; Holthaus, D.L.; Bonilla, D.R.; Pfaff, L.; Boyer, John E.; Brent, B.E.; Bolsen, K.K.; Young, Matthew A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-10-05)
    In 1992, 24 corn hybrids were grown under both irrigated and dryland conditions and were harvested at 90% of the kernel milk line. Growing condition and hybrid significantly affected plant height and the number of days ...
  • Mintert, J.R.; Schroeder, Ted C.; Langemeier, Michael R.; Albright, M.L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-10-05)
    The relative contributions of fluctuating cattle performance; interest rates; and feeder cattle, fed cattle, and feed grain prices to profit variability of cattle feeding were examined in this study. Closeout data from ...
  • Albright, M.; Schroeder, Ted C.; Langemeier, Michael R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-10-05)
    This study examined the relative effects of corn price and cattle performance factors on steer finishing cost of gain. Seasonal analysis of cost of gain and the factors affecting it was also conducted. Using over 10 ...
  • Utter, S.D.; Houghton, P.L.; Corah, L.R.; Spire, M.F.; Higgins, James J.; Butine, M.D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-10-05)

  • Simms, D.D.; Schwenke, J.R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-10-05)
    Results of 13 sales of Angus (n=185) and Simmental (n=544) bulls at central bull tests in Kansas from 1988 through 1992 were analyzed to determine the relationship between performance and the price received. The Kansas ...
  • Schroeder, Ted C.; Mintert, J.; Jones, R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-10-05)
    Previous research indicates that the number of bids received on pens of fed cattle has a positive influence on price. This study was undertaken to determine what factors influence the number of bids received on pens ...
  • Soita, H.W.; Brent, B.E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-10-05)
    High levels of the thiamin-destroying enzyme, thiaminase I, were found in the feces of 3 of 50 apparently healthy dairy cows. All high fecal thiaminase I levels returned to normal within 3 weeks, indicating that ...
