  • Hutchinson, Stacy L.; Marston, T.T.; Hunt, Melvin C.; Unruh, John A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2007)
    Approximately 16% of the 31 million head of cattle harvested in the United States in 2005 were aged cows. Cow meat is known to be tougher than meat from young steers and heifers, and it typically has a less desirable, ...
  • Hutchinson, Stacy L.; Hunt, Melvin C.; Marston, T.T.; Unruh, John A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2007)
    Enhancement of steer and heifer meat has become a common practice, especially for some large retailers in the United States, because it increases the weight of salable product and decreases variability in tenderness and ...
  • Shivas, S.D.; Kropf, Donald H.; Hunt, Melvin C.; Kendell, J.L.A.; Dayton, A.D.; Kastner, Curtis L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1983)
    Adding .05 and .10% ascorbic acid to ground beef resulted in brighter color and longer display life, more intense taste panel beef flavor and less rancidity. Those advantages should encourage centralized retail cutting and ...
  • Cunningham, F.; Hunt, Melvin C.; Kastner, Curtis L.; Kropf, Donald H.; Larson, B.; Schafer, D.; Simms, D.; Smith, S.; Vanier, M.; Fung, Daniel Y. C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1991)
    Beef and beef products are significant parts of a balanced diet in the U.S. and major parts of the Kansas economy. Therefore, these products must be carefully processed, handled, and monitored for microbial quality to ...
  • Hutchinson, Stacy L.; Daniel, M.J.; Higgins, James J.; Unruh, John A.; Hunt, Melvin C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2008)
    Cow meat is tougher than meat from young steers and heifers and typically has a less desirable, darker color. It is generally assumed that cow meat will need to be ground or have some form of post-mortem tenderization ...
  • Warren, K.E.; Hunt, Melvin C.; Marksberry, C.L.; Sorheim, O.; Kropf, Donald H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1990)
    Modified atmosphere packaging with 100% carbon dioxide was used to investigate changes in daily gas composition, as well as the influence of fat trim level and location of loin in the box on shelf life characteristics. ...
  • Carmack, C.F.; Hunt, Melvin C.; Kropf, Donald H.; Schwenke, J.R.; Kastner, Curtis L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1993)
    Natural flavorings were evaluated for use in low-fat ground beef, which frequently lacks flavor intensity. Three lean sources, A-maturity (young), E-maturity (mature cow), and imported (cow) beef round muscles, were used ...
  • Allen, Dell M.; Hunt, Melvin C.; Kropf, Donald H.; Chen, V.; Corte, O.; Gutowski, G.H.; Harrison, A.R.; Kuntapanit, C.; Thomas, J.D.; McCurry (Smith), M.E.; Kastner, Curtis L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1978)
    This report terminates a 3-year study and includes data from this past year. Previous results were reported in the 1976 and ’77 Cattlemen’s Day Report.
  • Allen, Dell M.; Hunt, Melvin C.; Kropf, Donald H.; Gutowski, G.; Harrison, A.; Smith, M.E.; Kastner, Curtis L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1977)
    Thirty-eight crossbred steers of known background were randomly assigned to four feeding regimes. All initially were fed on a brome and bluestem pasture supplemented during winter with alfalfa and protein. Ten grass-fed ...
  • Kropf, Donald H.; Hunt, Melvin C.; Piske, D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1987)
    We conducted two studies in response to a severe problem with ground beef color encountered by beef fabricators and retailers. We concluded that: (1) Loss of muscle chemical-reducing capability upon grinding, with subsequent ...
  • Ryan, S.M.; Seyfert, M.; Hunt, Melvin C.; Mancini, R.A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2006)
    Two experiments investigated the effects of cooking rate and post-cooking holding time on the internal cooked color of ground beef patties. In Experiment 1, patties were cooked rapidly (1.8ºF/second) or slowly (0.4ºF/second). ...
  • Hunt, Melvin C.; Schoenbeck, J.J.; Dobbels, T.E.; Dikeman, Michael E.; Stroda, Sally L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1999)
    Hereford × Angus carcasses were infused with a solution of either sugar/phosphate or calcium chloride immediately after exsanguination to determine effects on color stability during retail display. A calcium chloride ...
  • Luchsinger, S.E.; Garcia Zepeda, C.M.; Chambers, Edgar, IV; Hollingsworth, M.E.; Hunt, Melvin C.; Marsden, James L.; Stroda, Sally L.; Rubio Canas, E.J.; Kastner, Curtis L.; Kuecker, W.G.; Mata, T.; Kropf, Donald H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1995)
    Acceptance of irradiated, chilled, boneless, pork chops and nonirradiated controls by consumers was not different. Coupled with consumer concerns about food safety and well-documented improvement in consumer attitudes about ...
  • Bowles, J.E.; Hunt, Melvin C.; Kendall, J.L.A.; Lyon, M.; Kastner, Curtis L.; Dikeman, Michael E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1981)
    Short bursts of electricity (intermittent electrical stimulation) to beef carcasses accelerated pH decline and the onset of rigor mortis more than continuous stimulation did.
  • Dikeman, Michael E.; Dayton, A.D.; Hunt, Melvin C.; Kastner, Curtis L.; Axe, J.B.; Ilg, H.J. (American Society of Animal Science, 1985)
    Sixty-four 8-too-old steers, produced from 7/8 Simrnental sires mated to crossbred dams, averaged 265 kg initial weight. Forty-eight steers were assigned to an Accelerated (ACC) production system, while 16 steers were ...
  • Burson, D.E.; Hunt, Melvin C.; Allen, Dell M.; Kastner, Curtis L.; Kropf, Donald H. (American Society of Animal Science, 1980)
    To evaluate the combined effects of time on feed and diet energy density on the palatability of beef longissimus muscle steaks, we randomly allotted 112 Angus yearling steers to 14 nutritional regimens (eight steers ...
  • Lavelle, C.L.; Hunt, Melvin C.; Kropf, Donald H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1995)
    Retail display life of ground beef and internal color of patties cooked to four endpoint temperatures (131, 149, 160, and 17 1EF) were determined for ground beef (9% fat) from vitamin E-supplemented (500 and 2000 IU ...
  • Luchsinger, S.E.; Garcia Zepeda, C.M.; Chambers, Edgar, IV; Hollingsworth, M.E.; Hunt, Melvin C.; Marsden, James L.; Stroda, Sally L.; Rubio Canas, E.J.; Kastner, Curtis L.; Kuecker, W.G.; Mata, T.; Kropf, Donald H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1995)
    Irradiation and vacuum-packaging caused a more intense and stable red color in boneless pork chops. Irradiation up to 2.5 kGy increased cooked internal redness in chilled chops. Oxidative rancidity was greater in aerobic ...
  • Campbell, R.E.; Hunt, Melvin C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1998)
    Dry aging of beef cuts, once considered the "gold standard" for premium palatability, is practiced by only a few processors. We were asked by a major southern meat purveyor to study variables of dry-aging processing. ...
  • Shivas, S.D.; Kastner, Curtis L.; Dikeman, Michael E.; Hunt, Melvin C.; Kropf, Donald H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1983)
    We found steaks cut from inside rounds (chilled fast or slow) of electrically stimulated and hot boned bull carcasses, to be similar to conventionally processed steaks in taste panel, shear force and cooking loss characteristics.
