  • Aperce, C.; Drouillard, James S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2012)
    Crude glycerin is a byproduct of ethanol production and is used as a carbohydrate source for cattle feed. Glycerin levels in previous studies have ranged from 0 to 20% of diet dry matter, and concentrations of 8% or less ...
  • Bailey, E.A.; Titgemeyer, Evan C.; Cochran, R.C.; Jones, Timothy J.; Olson, K. C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2012)
    Pre- and postpartum deficiencies of metabolizable protein have been identified as potentially limiting to productivity of beef cows and calves. Pre-partum supplementation of forage-based diets with ruminally undegraded ...
  • Alvarado, C.A.; Aperce, C.C.; Miller, K.A.; Van Bibber, C.L.; Uwituze, S.; Higgins, James J.; Drouillard, James S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2012)
    Human diets often contain high levels of saturated fatty acids that can have deleterious health consequences such as obesity, diabetes, and heart disease. In contrast, omega-3 fatty acids, which are essential for human ...
  • Steele, K.S.; Weber, M.J.; Boyle, Elizabeth A. E.; Lobaton-Sulabo, A.S.; Cundith, C.; Hiebert, Y.H.; Abrolat, K.A.; Attey, J.M.; Clark, S.D.; Johnson, D.; Roenbaugh, T.L.; Hunt, Melvin C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2012)
    Consumers are not able to estimate tenderness, juiciness, or flavor when selecting beef cuts at retail stores. Instead, they rely on color as one of the major criteria to select beef cuts. During refrigerated display, ...
  • Miller, N.; Grieger, David M.; Fike, Karol E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2012)
    Beef feedlot heifers have the potential to serve as viable donors of oocytes post-slaughter for in vitro embryo production. Oocyte quality is a critical factor affecting the success of in vitro embryo production and can ...
  • Hill, S.L.; Pulley, S.L.; Mellieon, H.I. Jr.; Olson, K. C.; Jaeger, John R.; Breiner, Ryan M.; Perry, G.A.; Lamb, G.C.; Stevenson, Jeffrey S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2012)
    Fixed-time artificial insemination is an effective management tool that reduces the labor associated with more conventional programs that require detection of estrus. The 7-day CO-Synch + controlled internal drug release ...
  • Hands, M.L.; Marston, T.T.; Corah, L.R.; Reinhardt, Christopher D.; Waggoner, Justin W. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2012)
    Morbidity reduces performance and quality grade, but the effects of morbidity on quality grade independent of its effect on carcass fatness are rarely documented. As feedlot cattle fatten, a greater proportion of their ...
  • Aubel, N.A.; Eckerle, G.J.; Pacheco, L.A.; Macek, M.J.; Mundell, L.R.; Olson, K. C.; Jaeger, John R.; Murray, Leigh W. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2012)
    Diet selection is a dynamic process because of seasonal changes in animal and plant characteristics. Nutrient requirements of grazing animals are a function of physiological state; moreover, plant characteristics may be ...
  • Bowers, L.J.; Dikeman, Michael E.; Murray, Leigh W.; Stroda, Sally L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2012)
    Foodservice managers strive to control factors that affect yield, serving cost, and palatability of beef. Beef roasts are traditionally roasted at temperatures from 325°F to 350°F for both home and institutional use. ...
  • Green, T.M.; Guichon, P.T.; Thomson, Daniel U.; Wileman, Benjamin W.; Reinhardt, Christopher D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2012)
    Bovine lameness presents itself in a variety of forms. A number of predisposing factors have been reported, such as increased amounts of wet feces and mud from high rainfall; limb trauma from rocks, sticks, or handling ...
  • Rezac, D.J.; Butler, B.A.; Thomson, Daniel U.; Wileman, Benjamin W.; Reinhardt, Christopher D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2012)
    Siderophore-receptor and porin-based (SRP) Escherichia coli vaccine technology functions by starving the E. coli organism via competitive exclusion for proteins that scavenge iron, an essential nutrient for E. coli ...
  • 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 ...
