Growth Measurements Of Holstein, Ayrshire, Guernsey And Jersey Males, H. P. Davis, I. L. Hathaway Jul 1959

Growth Measurements Of Holstein, Ayrshire, Guernsey And Jersey Males, H. P. Davis, I. L. Hathaway

Historical Research Bulletins of the Nebraska Agricultural Experiment Station

This study was based on monthly observations of all Holstein, Ayrshire, Guernsey and Jersey males born in the University of Nebraska dairy herd between 1922 and 1942. There were varying numbers of animals for the different months of age for the several breeds. Measurements of weight, slope of the rump, thickness of skin, and 13 linear measurements were taken monthly, from birth to disposal of the animals. The linear measurements were of heights at withers, hooks and rump; of lengths-diagonal (shoulder point to pinbone), body and rump; of widths at chest, hooks and pinbones; of depths at chest and barrel ...

Behavior Of The Red-Footed Booby (Sulasula) In British Honduras, Jared Verner May 1959

Behavior Of The Red-Footed Booby (Sulasula) In British Honduras, Jared Verner

LSU Historical Dissertations and Theses

During three months of the breeding season in a colony of 3500 Red-footed Boobies (Sula sula) on 45½-acre Half Moon Caye, fifty miles east of Belize, British Honduras, that species’ little-known breeding activities were investigated. Feeding flights of boobies began leaving the caye before daylight and returned in the evening until after dark. Wind direction and velocity notably affected the mode of the birds’ departure but little affected their direction. Average flight-unit size was 2.41 birds. Contrary to published accounts, the boobies were able to take flight from the ground.


Artificial Pothole And Level Ditch Development As A Means Of Increasing Waterfowl Prodcution, Charles H. Lacy May 1959

Artificial Pothole And Level Ditch Development As A Means Of Increasing Waterfowl Prodcution, Charles H. Lacy

All Graduate Theses and Dissertations

The glaciated prairie pothole country of the Midwest forms a vital segment of the most important waterfowl breeding habitat in North America. Here are hatched three-quarters of all the ducks raised in the United States. During a recent seven-year period the three-state area of Minnesota and the Dakotas produced an average of 4 to 5 million ducks annually (Janzon, 1947). This wetland region which once comprised 115,000 square miles in five states had shrunk to about 56,000 square miles by 19.56 (Lynch, 1956). To maintain the pre,;ent rate of waterfowl production in the face of continued ...


Lethal Concentrations And Detoxification Time Of Toxaphene For Goldfish, Gambusia And Rainbow Trout, Gar W. Workman May 1959

Lethal Concentrations And Detoxification Time Of Toxaphene For Goldfish, Gambusia And Rainbow Trout, Gar W. Workman

All Graduate Theses and Dissertations

In the past few years the Utah Fish and Game Department, as well as the fish and game departments of other states, has been spending fisheries money for fish eradication on both lakes and streams. The Utah Fish and Game Department recently suggested to the University that research be initiated on the subject of toxaphene as a fish poison. Consequently, a better insight into conditions that exist for a given water type could be developed. To date there is a very small amount of material written on toxaphene. This is due primarily to the fact that toxaphene was not developed ...


Feeding Protein, Phosphorus And Energy Supplements To Beef Cows On Utah Desert Ranges, Robert Hyrum Olsen May 1959

Feeding Protein, Phosphorus And Energy Supplements To Beef Cows On Utah Desert Ranges, Robert Hyrum Olsen

All Graduate Theses and Dissertations

Many of the beef cattle in the Great Basin area are maintained part or all of the year on rangelands. Most of those going on to desert ranges for only part of the year go on during the late fall, winter, and early spring. It is estimated that 50-60 percent of the 600,000 beef cattle grazing on range lands in Utah graze on the one-fourth million acres of desert or semi-desert sometime during the year.


The Biology Of The Utah Chub, Gila Atraria (Girard), Of Scofield Reservoir, Utah, Harold F. Olson May 1959

The Biology Of The Utah Chub, Gila Atraria (Girard), Of Scofield Reservoir, Utah, Harold F. Olson

All Graduate Theses and Dissertations

The Utah chub is one of the most important non-game fish in Utah. It has a wide range, and occurs in every drainage in Utah. The Utah chub is not important economically as food fish nor is it of much value commercially. The sportsmen think of this species as trash and do not consider catching or consuming the. However, the Utah chub may be caught on hook and like more readily than many game species. The Utah chub in Scofield Reservoir have been caught by trolling, bait fishing and fly casting and furnish considerable sport when caught with a light ...


Summary Of Research On Diethlstilbestrol For Growing And Fattening Beef Cattle, D.V. Radabaugh, L.B. Embry Apr 1959

Summary Of Research On Diethlstilbestrol For Growing And Fattening Beef Cattle, D.V. Radabaugh, L.B. Embry

Agricultural Experiment Station Animal Husbandry Pamphlets

Numerous experiments on the response of growing and fattening cattle to stilbestrol have been reported in recent years. There has been a response to stilbestrol in most of these experiments, though to varying degrees. Many of the reports have been of a preliminary nature and in several instances have covered only one trial. A review of such experiments individually does not present a clear and concise picture of the effects of stilbestrol treatment. Therefore, results of most of the reported experiments have been reviewed and are summarized in the tables in this pamphlet. Four rather distinct phases of cattle feeding ...

B582: Competition Among Areas In Supplying Broilers To The New York Market, Elwood R. Littlefield, Charles H. Merchant

Bulletins

Many factors are responsible for the rapid expansion of the broiler industry in the United States from 356 million, birds in 1948 to 1,452 million in 1957. This report describes the factors such as larger units of production, greatly improved feeds, better disease control, and increased consumer demand for broilers.

An Electrophoretic Study Of Egg-White Proteins In Twenty-Three Breeds Of The Domestic Fowl, Charles G. Sibley, Paul A. Johnsgard Mar 1959

An Electrophoretic Study Of Egg-White Proteins In Twenty-Three Breeds Of The Domestic Fowl, Charles G. Sibley, Paul A. Johnsgard

Paul Johnsgard Collection

A "conservative" taxonomic character is one which preserves evidence of evolutionary relationships. As Mayr (1942: 296) points out such characters are rare because structures are usually lost quickly when no longer needed and selection seldom neglects a functional structure for very long but continually modifies it as adaptive fitness is increased. However, because different characters evolve at different rates it is possible to find some characters which have changed more slowly than others and to use these as phylogenetic indicators. In birds, for example, plumage color and structure apparently change more rapidly than the skeleton or the muscular system. This ...

Variability In The Electrophoretic Patterns Of Avian Serum Proteins, Charles G. Sibley, Paul A. Johnsgard Jan 1959

Variability In The Electrophoretic Patterns Of Avian Serum Proteins, Charles G. Sibley, Paul A. Johnsgard

Papers in Ornithology

It has been known for more than 50 years that particular proteins characterize every species of plant and animal and that phylogenetic relationships are reflected in protein structure. The first application of this fact to taxonomic studies was by Nuttall ( 1901; 1904) who used the precipitin reaction of immune sera to test degrees of relationship in over 500 species of animals. With refinements in technique have come many more serological studies and the results have justified the statement by Landsteiner (1945) that “chemical differences parallel the variation in structure” and hence are useful in classification.


Comments On Species Recognition With Special Reference To The Wood Duck And The Mandarin Duck, William C. Dilger, Paul A. Johnsgard Jan 1959

Comments On Species Recognition With Special Reference To The Wood Duck And The Mandarin Duck, William C. Dilger, Paul A. Johnsgard

Papers in Ornithology

It is well known that closely related, sympatric species have evolved species-specific features which serve to minimize the possibility of "wrong" choices being made during pair formation. The amount of evolution of such species-specific features is roughly proportional to the deleterious effects of the "wrong" choices made in species recognition. Of course, if upon initial contact, the forms interbreed too freely panmixia will occur and both will eventually lose whatever genetic identity they may have had. On the other hand if, by the time of contact, the forms have incidentally developed differences sufficient to serve automatically as isolating mechanisms from ...
