  • Bolsen, K.; Hinds, M.; Ilg, H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-12-14)
    Laboratory silos were used in three trials to evaluate sudangrass (slightly or moderately wilted) and high moisture corn silages, each receiving the following treatments: (1) control (no additive); (2) CULBAC® dry; (3) ...
  • Laytimi, A.; Bolsen, K.; Janicki, B. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-12-14)
    Replicate, covered wheat straw (WS) stacks were treated with 1.5 or 3.0% anhydrous ammonia in three environmental chambers at 37, 68, or 95 F, for 23 days. Then digestibility was measured (wethers). Rations were 88% wheat ...
  • Smith, R.; Bolsen, K.; Ilg, H.; Hinds, M.; Dickerson, J.; Hoover, J.; Pope, Ronald V. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-12-14)
    Five silages produced in 1982 were evaluated in two growing trials using 96 steer calves. Forage sorghum silage (heading) was assigned a feeding value of 100. Based on comparative rates and efficiencies of gain, feeding ...
  • Bolsen, K.; Ilg, H.; Hinds, M.; Milliken, George A.; Hoover, J. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-12-14)
    Eight concrete stave silos (10 x 50 ft) were used in two trials to evaluate rapid (24 to 36 hr) and delay (15 days) filling, each with our without 1177® silage inoculant. Corn silage was used in Trial 1; forage sorghum in ...
  • Young, B.; Smith, R.; Bolsen, K.; Ilg, H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-12-14)
    Dry rolled corn, ensiled high moisture corn, and high moisture corn that was rolled and ensiled with urea or left whole and ensiled with urea were compared in two cattle trials. Dry corn gave the poorest cattle performance; ...
  • Bolsen, K.; Hinds, M.; Brethour, J. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-12-14)
    Numerous commercial silage additives, whose manufacturers claim will improve silage quality, are available to Kansas farmers and ranchers. We believe that these claims must ultimately be documented with farm-scale research. ...
  • Bolsen, K.; Ilg, H.; Hinds, M. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-12-14)
    In the first trial, calves fed Silo Guard II®-treated forage sorghum silage were 4.2% more efficient than those fed the control silage. Silo Guard II reduced the amount of heat produced during the ensiling process, and ...
  • Bolsen, K.; Ilg, H.; Hinds, M. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-12-14)
    Silo-Best lowered the ensiling temperature and increased the dry matter recovered from the silo by over 5 percentage units (82.3 vs. 77.3%). Calves fed the control silage gained faster and consumed more feed, but those fed ...
  • Bolsen, K.; Axe, D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-12-14)
    High-moisture forage sorghum silage was fed to 108 steer calves to measure the effect of sodium bicarbonate and feed flavor (Omniflavor®) on calf performance. Overall performance was similar for all three rations by the ...
  • Janicki, B.; Bolsen, K.; Hinds, M.; Ilg, H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-12-14)
    Adding urea to forage sorghum greatly increased the ensiling temperature, produced a more rapid and extensive fermentation, and resulted in more shrink loss in the silo. Fermentrol®, an enzyme-inoculant additive, had ...
