    Cetyl Pyridinium Chloride (CPC) spray using variable application temperatures, pressures, and times was evaluated for its effectiveness in reducing Listeria monocytogenes inoculated on the surfaces of commercial frankfurters ...
  • Sindt, J.J.; Kessen, T.J.; Sulpizio, M.J.; Loe, E.R.; Montgomery, Sean P.; Drouillard, James S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2003)
    Finishing heifers were fed diets containing either conventional (18% moisture) or high-moisture (36% moisture) steam-flaked corn. Increasing moisture concentration in flakes increased starch availability (P<0.01), ...
  • Montgomery, Sean P.; Sindt, J.J.; Greenquist, M.A.; Good, E.J.; Loe, E.R.; Sulpizio, M.J.; Kessen, T.J.; Drouillard, James S.; Depenbusch, Brandon E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2003)
    Eight hundred eighty-eight crossbred beef heifers weighing 837 lb were used in a 105- day finishing study to evaluate full-fat corn germ as a lipid source and added vitamin E in finishing diets containing steam-flaked ...
  • Fox, J.A.; Boland, Michael A.; Grady, W. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2003)
    The effect of consumer information about food irradiation and the source of the information was studied through a survey mailed to 400 residents each of Manhattan and Topeka, Kansas. Two-thirds of the surveys contained a ...
