  • Choi, Y.I.; Hunt, Melvin C.; Kropf, Donald H.; Kastner, Curtis L.; Dikeman, Michael E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1983)
    Presalted, hot-boned muscle has excellent emulsifying properties for sausage manufacturing. However, electrical stimulation degrades these properties. Thus, while electrical stimulation and hot boning produce acceptable ...
  • Simms, D.; Kuhl, G.; Tonn, S.; Schalles, R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1983)
    Lutalyse aborted 86.7% of heifers 40 to 100 days pregnant. Of four heifers tested at 101 to 150 days pregnant, all aborted. Open heifers gained faster (P<.05) than heifers that either were aborted or pregnant at slaughter. ...
  • Heidker, J.; Ilg, H.; Bolsen, K.; Behnke, Keith C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1983)
    ELPWA (a lactobacillus inoculant with antioxidant), molasses, or both combined were evaluated as additives to high moisture sorghum grain ensiled in concrete stave silos. ELPWA treated grain had the greatest temperature ...
  • Lambert, C.; Corah, L.; Grunewald, O. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1983)
    Data were collected on 85,195 cattle sold in 15 Kansas auctions during October and November 1981. Buyers discounted sick cattle heavily, 'and discounts were heavier on sick calves than yearlings. The discount for bulls ...
  • Keay, L.E.; Kiracofe, G.; Odde, Kenneth G.; Stevenson, Jeffrey S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1983)
    One-hundred eighteen heifers were used to determine the effectiveness of Alfaprostol as a heat synchronization agent. Seventy-nine were injected twice (12 days apart) with 6 mg Alfaprostol per head and 39 were not treated. ...
  • Young, B.; Ilg, H.; Bolsen, K. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1983)
    Dry corn, stave ensiled high-moisture corn (HMC), stave ensiled HMC treated with urea, and Harvestore ensiled HMC were evaluated in a steer finishing trial. Alfalfa hay and corn silage were the roughages and soybean meal ...
  • Hinds, M.; Brethour, J.; Bolsen, K. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1983)
    Inoculant (1177 in one trial) and non-protein nitrogen (LSA-100 in two trials) silage additives were evaluated with whole-plant forage sorghum silage. Steers fed LSA-100 silage gained faster than steers fed control ...
  • Kropf, Donald H.; Hunt, Melvin C.; Cross, H.R.; Dikeman, Michael E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1983)
    Beef carcass quality factors were evaluated under 25 different lighting systems (five lighting types each at five light intensities). Cool White fluorescent caused the darkest and most mature lean score, but marbling ...
  • Simon, M.; Keay, L.E.; Kiracofe, G.; Riley, Jack G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1983)
    Heifers that were 167 days pregnant when slaughtered gained faster and more efficiently than open heifers, or heifers that had been aborted with a prostaglandin analog at 83 or 138 days, unless the slaughter weight was ...
  • Schalles, R.R.; Spire, M.; Clarke, C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1983)
    Heavy milking cows took longer to respond to estrus synchronization than light milking cows. There was no difference in response time between cows treated with Estrumate and Lutalyse. Cow weight, height or condition had ...
  • Spire, M.F.; Riley, Jack G.; Edwards, A.J. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1983)
    Two trials were conducted to evaluate the effectiveness of revaccinating recently processed cattle with modified live IBR and BVD vaccine. Revaccination decreased total illness 24 to 26%. A significant reduction in clinically ...
  • Smith, E.F.; Owensby, Clenton E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1983)
    From 1978 to 1982, steers on a late spring burned pasture averaged 40 lbs more gain each summer than steers on a non-burned pasture.
  • Held, R.; Smith, E.F.; Riley, Jack G.; Owensby, Clenton E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1983)
    Native bluestem pastures were grazed from May 10 to July 15, 1982 by steers averaging 599 lbs, at stocking rates 1.82, 1.5, 1.2 acres per steer. Daily gains were similar for all rates, but gain per acre increased with ...
  • Bartley, E.E.; Riddell, D.O.; Arambel, M.A.; Dennis, S.M. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1983)
    Benefits have been shown under certain conditions when niacin is added to the diets of beef cattle, dairy cattle or sheep. We attempted to find out what effects added niacin has on the rumen fermentation, and conversely, ...
  • Riley, Jack G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1983)
    Results of a 1982 survey were compared to a similar survey conducted 5 years earlier to determine if the acceptance of management practices had changed during that time period. The cow herd size was similar in both surveys ...
  • Laudert, S.; Kuhl, G.; Schalles, R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1983)
    Implanting incoming feedlot heifers with Ralgro® or Synovex-H® increased weight gain an average of 9.4%. Reimplanting half way through the 119 day feeding period did not improve gain significantly. There were no differences ...
  • Bolsen, K.; Ilg, H.; Hinds, M.; Hoover, J.; Pope, Ronald V. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1983)
    Four whole-plant silages produced in 1981 and 1982 were evaluated using 176 calves in two growing trials. Based on comparative rates and efficiencies of gain, feeding values were 115, 100, 78.5, and 62 for the cornlage, ...
