    Pelleted wheat middlings samples were collected from four Kansas flour mills in March, April, and May, 1997 to characterize their moisture content and bulk density as they would be purchased directly from the mills by a ...
  • Narayanan, S.; Okwumabua, O.; Staats, J.; Oberst, Richard D.; Nagaraja, T. G.; Chengappa, M. M. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1998)
    DNA finger printing (restriction fragment length polymorphism analysis) was employed to genetically compare Fusobacterium necrophorum isolates of liver abscesses, ruminal wall, and ruminal contents from the same animal. ...
  • Brazle, F.K. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1998)
    Crossbred yearling heifers were allotted randomly to three grazing implant treatments: 1) control (CONT), 2) Component® E-H (CEH), and 3) Ralgro® (RAL). After grazing native grass for 74 days, the heifers were transported ...
  • Karr, K.J.; Kastner, Curtis L.; Marsden, James L.; Phebus, Randall K. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1998)
    Lebanon bologna raw batter was mixed with a five-strain mixture of Escherichia coli O157:H7 to achieve average inoculum levels of 7.79, 7.77, and 7.92 log CFU/g as deter mined on MSA, 202, and PRSA media, respectively. ...
  • Schoenholz, C.K.; Drouillard, James S.; Armendariz, C.K.; Titgemeyer, Evan C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1998)
    A series of in vitro experiments was conducted to determine the ruminal availability of protein from grains. Procedures were based on assumptions that 1) ruminal availability of protein is first-limiting to microbial growth, ...
  • Eidson, S.; Langemeier, Michael R.; Jones, R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1998)
    Beef cow producers must manage costs of production and improve production efficiency to compete with hog and poultry and other beef cattle producers. A sample of 46 beef cow enterprises from the Kansas Farm Management ...
  • 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. ...
  • Spire, M.F.; Galland, J.C.; Drouillard, James S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1998)
    Thermal imaging of feedlot cattle ears is a noninvasive diagnostic tool that aids in identifying properly placed or abscessed growth-promoting implants. Thirty-two calves were used to determine if abscessed and normal, ...
  • Baker, J.C.; Tonn, S.R.; Kehler, David E.; Blasi, Dale A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1998)
    Native grass hay meadows in three Kansas Flint Hills counties were sampled at 2-week intervals during the growing season to determine the effect of harvest date on forage quality. Each sample was analyzed for crude protein ...
  • Heldt, J.S.; Cochran, R.C.; Farmer, C.G.; Mathis, C.P.; Titgemeyer, Evan C.; Nagaraja, T. G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1998)
    Twenty ruminally fistulated steers were used in different two experiments to evaluate the effects of supplemental carbohydrate source (starch, glucose, fructose, or sucrose) fed at .3% BW/day on the utilization of low-quality ...
  • Wallace, N.; Sun, Y.; Kemp, K.E.; Parrott, J.C.; Nagaraja, T. G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1998)
    Tylosin feeding prevented the increase in Fusobacterium necrophorum population normally associated with the feeding of a high-grain diet. Also, tylosin appeared to moderate the ruminal fermentation during initial adaptation ...
  • Flake, A.S.; Kuhl, G.L.; Drouillard, James S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1998)
    A total of 216 yearling steers was used in two finishing experiments to evaluate interactions between levels of dietary fat, protein and ruminally protected choline. In Trial 1, steers received diets that combined ...
  • Greenwood, R.H.; Titgemeyer, Evan C.; Drouillard, James S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1998)
    Blocks based on cooked beet molasses, cane molasses, or concentrated separator by-product, CSB) were tested to compare their effects on intake and digestion of prairie hay by beef steers. All blocks contained at least ...
  • Brazle, F.K.; Laudert, S.B. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1998)
    Four hundred sixty-nine English and Continental cross yearling steers grazed on native grass pastures over a 2-year period. Rumensin® was added (1,620 g/ton) to the mineral mixture in half of the pastures. Some of the ...
