    Stanton, Asa Claude (University of Missouri, 1915)
    The object of the investigations reported in this thesis was to study a few of the factors affecting the quality of cream before it is churned, and the quality of the butter within a short duration of time after it is ...
  • Effect of cotton seed meal upon the churnability of cream, and the market qualities of the butter 

    Graves, R. R. (Roy Ralph), 1886- (University of Missouri, 1912)
    The results of the investigations already carried out along the line of the effect of cotton seed meal upon butter have been marked by a lack of uniformity of results. In view of this it seems desirable to conduct this ...

    Regan, W. M. (William Michael), 1884-1962 (University of Missouri, 1914)
    There are five uses in general to which a dairy cow may put her feed. It may be used for maintenance, for growth, for the production of milk, for the laying on of fat and for the growth of the foetus. In view of the fact ...
  • The efficiency of certain methods of preserving milk samples for chemical analysis with special reference to the protein constituents 

    Primm, Roy Lee (University of Missouri, 1911)
    The need has long been felt for an efficient preservative for milk samples intended for chemical analysis. Since it is not feasible to make all analyses on the fresh sample some means must be used to preserve the milk. The ...
  • The energy requirements for the normal growth of dairy heifers 

    Dice, James R. (James Renfrew), 1900- (University of Missouri, 1919)
    Text from introduction: "There are at least two reasons why more definite knowledge of the energy requirements of growing cattle are desirable. First, the energy requirement of the animal is known to be high and because ...
  • Factors affecting the growth of dairy animals 

    Swett, Walter Whittier (University of Missouri, 1916)
    Text from introduction: All successful breeders are continually striving to improve the quality of their herds. The value of any dairy herd is determined to a great extent by the way in which the heifers within that herd ...

    In the course of a study of the methods of analysis of cotton seed oil from linoleic acid, by means of the isolation of the acid as its bromine compound, the end product of the analysis which should have been linoleic ...
  • Milk substitutes, powdered skimmilk for raising calves 

    Wing, Leon Walton (University of Missouri, 1917)
    Text from introduction: This thesis is a discussion, from the standpoint of our present knowledge of the fundamental principles of animal nutrition, of the possibility of raising calves on "milk substitutes". The experimental ...

    Fohrman, M. H. (Milton Henry), 1886- (University of Missouri, 1919)
    The dairyman is keenly interested in knowing how he can raise his calves in an economical and successful manner. This thesis reports the results of several experiments in early weaning and minimum use of milk for calf ...
  • The minimum protein requirement for growing dairy heifers 

    Fine, Solomon (University of Missouri, 1918)
    Text from page 1: "By minimum protein requirements of growing dairy heifers is meant the least quantity of protein in the ration which will allow normal growth to proceed. A study or investigation leading to a knowledge ...
  • Minimum protein requirements for the growth of dairy heifers 

    Riford, Lloyd Stephen (University of Missouri, 1915)
    In order to reduce the feed cost as much as possible, it is of considerable importance to know the required amount of protein necessary to develop the heifer normally. To best arrive at a protein standard for dairy heifers ...
