Reflecting on many Beef Research Accomplishments
From the 100th Beef Research Roundup at K-State's Agricultural Research Center at Hays last Thursday: Bob Gillen, who heads the Center, reflects on some of the many beef research breakthroughs accomplished at the center over the last century. Also, K-State beef systems specialist Justin Waggoner talks about his latest work at the center with ammoniated wheat straw, evaluating the feeding value of that roughage when the anhydrous application rate to the straw is reduced as a cost-savings measure.

2012 - Daytime Calving
Stimulating more cows to give birth during daylight hours can be accomplished by late afternoon or evening feeding. Research conducted at the K-State Agricultural Research Center in Hays demonstrated that when cows were fed daily between 4 p.m. and 6 p.m. 85% of their calves were born between 6 a.m. and 6 p.m. In addition, it was observed that cows which calved during daylight hours tended to give birth during daylight hours in future years.
