    Kansas State University, in cooperation with the Beef Empire Days committee, developed a new beef carcass index system for 1991, incorporating yield and quality traits as indicators of carcass merit. Development of the ...
  • Dikeman, Michael E.; Melton, C.C.; Tuma, H.J.; Beecher, G.R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-03-17)
    Because tenderness is considered the most desired eating characteristic in meat, more emphasis should be placed on this trait in evaluating beef quality in breeding and selection programs. Both tenderness and marbling ...
  • Dikeman, Michael E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2013-03-19)
    The primary purpose of producing beef cattle is to convert grass, forages, and various byproducts, plus human-edible protein and energy, into highly nutritious and tasty beef. To accomplish this, (1) cattle enterprises ...
  • Feldkamp, T.; Lusk, J.; Schroeder, Ted C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-08-04)
    Determining needs and wants of consumers is important for the beef industry to reverse the downward trend in beef demand during the last two decades. This study used experimental auctions in conjunction with a survey ...
  • Ritter, B.; Bauernfeind, B. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-12-01)
    A 2-year-old, irriagated alfalfa field was left untreated or treated with ¼ lb, ½ lb, or 1 lb of Furadan® per acre on April 5, 1986. Alfalfa weevil populations were determined 2,9,16 and 23 days post-spraying. Forage samples ...
  • Laytimi, A.; Grimes, C.; Bolsen, K. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-12-10)
    Third cutting alfalfa was baled in large rectangular bales (1,400 to 1,800 lb) and in small conventional bales (70 to 90 lb) at three moisture levels: low 00%), medium (16%), and high (22%). During 120 days of storage ...
  • Bolsen, K.; Hinds, M.; Ilg, H.; Hoover, J. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-12-10)
    Eight whole-plant corn silages were evaluated using laboratory silos. Treatments were: 1) control (no additive); 2) H/M Inoculant applied to the fresh crop at the forage harvester (H/M-field); and 3) H/M Inoculant applied ...
  • Gray, D.G.; Unruh, John A.; Kastner, Curtis L.; Dikeman, Michael E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-12-14)
    Low voltage electrical stimulation of young bulls at 30 to 45 min after bleeding resulted in a lower muscle pH, higher marbling score, lighter cherry red color and reduced incidence of heat ring formation when compared to ...
  • Andrews, B.S.; Unruh, John A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-08-06)
    We used 108 top sirloin butts to determine the influence of quality grades, postmortem aging periods, and blade tenderization passes on percentages of thawing and cooking losses and Warner-Bratzler shear (WBS) force ...
  • DelCurto, T.; Cochran, R.C.; Corah, L.R.; Beharka, A.A.; Vanzant, E.S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-11-02)
    Fifteen ruminally and 12 esophageally cannulated steers were randomly assigned to receive low (LP), moderate (MP), and high (HP) crude protein (CP) supplements in a 23-day winter grazing trial designed to evaluate dormant ...
  • Hunt, Melvin C.; Kropf, Donald H.; Chen, V.; Harrison, A.; Corte, O.; Kuntapanit, C.; Smith, M.E.; Thomas, J.; Kastner, Curtis L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-03-04)
    Ten steers of known background, approximately 18 months old, and wintered on alfalfa and protein were finished on a brome and bluestem grazing program. Carcass characteristics were measured. The influence of conditioning ...
  • Bolsen, K.; Hinds, M.; Brethour, J. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-12-14)
    Numerous commercial silage additives, whose manufacturers claim will improve silage quality, are available to Kansas farmers and ranchers. We believe that these claims must ultimately be documented with farm-scale research. ...
  • Bolsen, K. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-01-27)
    Numerous commercial silage additives, manufacturers of which make various claims for their improving silage quality, are available to Kansas farmers and ranchers. In 2 previous years (1980 and 1981), we reported on ...
  • Nuwanyakpa, M.; Posler, Gerry L.; Bolsen, K.K.; Ilg, H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-02-18)
    In 1977, all summer annual forages studied produced excellent yields. Based on leafiness and regrowth ability, sudangrasses and pearl millet appeared to be best for early vegetative and boot cutting management. The ...
