  • Van Bibber-Krueger, C.L.; Miller, K.A.; Drouillard, James S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2013)
    Tenderness is a key contributor to the sensory attributes of beef, and production practices that decrease tenderness are generally viewed as unfavorable. Zilmax (Merck Animal Health, Summit, NJ) is a potent beta-adrenergic ...
  • Neill, S.; Marston, T.T.; Higgins, James J.; Unruh, John A.; Jaeger, John R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2009)
    Mature cows are typically removed from the cow herd for various reasons, such as reproductive inefficiency and poor performance. It has been estimated that as much as 15 to 25% of a ranch’s revenue may be from cull cows. ...
  • Neill, S.; Marston, T.T.; Daniel, M.J.; Higgins, James J.; Unruh, John A.; Jaeger, John R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2009)
    Mature cows are culled from herds for reasons such as poor performance and failure to rebreed. When these cows are removed from the herd, they are typically in thin condition and potentially can be fed to gain weight and ...
  • Baxa, T.J.; Hutcheson, J.P.; Miller, M.F.; Nichols, W.T.; Streeter, M.N.; Yates, D.A.; Johnson, B.J. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2008)
    Zilpaterol-HCl (Zilmax) is a β2-adrenergic receptor agonist approved as a growth promotant in feedlot cattle for use during the last 20 to 40 days prior to harvest. It is orally active and improves performance and total ...
  • Parsons, Garrett L. (Kansas State University, 2010)
    Two trials were conducted to evaluate the effects of crude glycerin in feedlot cattle. The objectives of this research were to determine the effects of crude glycerin on animal performance, carcass characteristics, ruminal ...
  • Thompson, L.; Schneider, C.; Parson, G.; Miller, K.; Reinhardt, Christopher D.; Drouillard, James S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010)
    Using a growth promotant at the correct time of finishing is critical for maximizing profit potential. Previous studies have shown that zilpaterol-HCl (Zilmax; Intervet/ Schering-Plough Animal Health, Millsboro, DE) ...
  • Claus, H.C.; Brooks, J.C.; Shook, J.; Hilton, G.G.; Lawrence, T.E.; Mehaffey, J.M.; Johnson, B.J.; Allen, Dell M.; Streeter, M.N.; Nichols, W.T.; Hutcheson, J.P.; Yates, D.A.; Miller, M.F.; Hunt, Melvin C.; Killefer, J.; Dikeman, Michael E.; Murray, Leigh W. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010)
    Ractopamine hydrochloride (Elanco, Greenfield, IN) and Zilmax (zilpaterol hydrochloride; Intervet/Schering-Plough, Millsboro, DE) are β-adrenergic agonists approved in the United States and several other countries to ...
  • Daniel, M.J.; Dikeman, Michael E.; Houser, Terry A.; Unruh, John A.; Jaeger, John R.; Murray, Leigh W. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2009)
    Beef cows are culled from herds because of reproductive inefficiency, poor performance, old age, or farm downsizing due to high production costs. The National Market Cow and Bull Beef Quality Audit of 1999 reported that ...
  • Van Bibber, C.L.; Drouillard, James S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2012)
    The purpose of this experiment was to determine the effects of Zilmax (Merck Animal Health, Summit, NJ) on changes in blood metabolites. Zilmax is a feed additive designed to improve production efficiency in cattle when ...
