    Liquid smoke (LS) effectiveness in controlling lipid oxidation and warmed-over flavor (WOF) in beef was investigated. Aroma scores, "α-thiobarbituri c acid (TBA) numbers, and pH values were lower (P<.05) in LS-treated beef ...
  • Ameri, F.; Smith, J. Scott (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2007)
    Heterocyclic amines (HCAs) are carcinogenic and mutagenic compounds found at a level of parts per billion in grilled fish and meats. Since the connection between consumption of dietary carcinogens and risk of different ...
  • Woodworth, J.C.; O'Quinn, P.R.; Knabe, D.A.; Tokach, Michael D.; Goodband, Robert D.; Nelssen, Jim L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1998)
    We conducted two experiments to determine the apparent ileal digestibility of amino acids and digestible energy (DE) and metabolizable energy (ME) values for conventionally processed, solvent-extracted soybean meal (SBM) ...
  • Kastner, Curtis L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1980)
    It has been known for years that electrical stimulation will improve tenderness of meat, but the technique only recently has gained considerable interest in the meat industry. Benjamin Franklin in 1749 observed that ...
  • Goodband, Robert D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1989)
    The swine industry is at a crossroads that either mayor may not change the way we produce pork in the future. As we head into the 90's, we are entering a new era in terms of growth promotion and carcass modification,which ...
  • Stevenson, Jeffrey S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2007)
    Use of progesterone inserts (controlled interval drug release, CIDR) offers another option for synchronizing estrus and ovulation in replacement heifers and lactating dairy cows. Results indicate that heifers may be ...
  • Chung, S. H.; Herron-Thorpe, F. L.; Lamb, B. K.; VanReken, T. M.; Vaughan, J. K.; Gao, Jincheng; Wagner, Larry E.; Fox, Fred (2013)
    Wind erosion of soil is a major concern of the agricultural community, as it removes the most fertile part of the soil and thus degrades soil productivity. Furthermore, dust emissions due to wind erosion degrade air quality, ...
  • Owen, K.Q.; Kats, L.J.; Nelssen, Jim L.; Tokach, Michael D.; Goodband, Robert D.; Dritz, Steven S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1993)
    A total of 367 weanling pigs (initially 11.8 lb and 21 d of age) was used in a 28 d growth assay to determine the appropriate level of lactose needed in phase I diets containing spray-dried porcine plasma (SDPP) for the ...
  • Owen, K.Q.; Richert, B.T.; Friesen, K.G.; Goodband, Robert D.; Nelssen, Jim L.; Tokach, Michael D.; Dritz, Steven S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1994)
    A total of 350 crossbred pigs (9.0 ± 2 d old and 8.4 lb +f- 2.5 BW) was used to determine the appropriate methionine: lysine ratio in diets for the segregated early-weaned pig. Two lysine levels (1.8 and 1.4%) and five ...
  • Nelssen, Jim L.; Allee, G.L.; Thaler, R.C.; Turlington, W.H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1987)
    A total of 108 21-day-old pigs, weighing less than 10 lb, were utilized in two, 28-day trials to compare the effects of feeding high nutrient-density diets with either added apramycin, neomycin, or carbadox on pig performance. ...
  • Koch, B.A.; Nam, T. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1963)
    Arsanilic acid is one of many feed additives approved by the Food and Drug Administration for use in swine rations. Results from an uncontrolled feeding demonstration suggested that arsanilic acid effectively increased ...
  • Leipold, H.W.; Ely, R.; Schoneweis, D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1978)
    This report documents experimental reproduction of tetramelic arthrogryposis in purebred Yorkshire swine by breeding trials. Data from the trials indigated arthrogryposis may be due to homozygosity of a simple autosomal ...
  • Noll, M.T.; Allee, G.L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1979)
    Four experiments involving 140 pigs were conducted to evaluate cow colostrum and twice-a-day feeding in artificial rearing of baby pigs. Piglets were allowed to nurse the sow for 15 hours after birth and allotted by litter ...
  • Richardson, D.; Smith, E.F.; Koch, B.A.; Ward, J.K.; Boren, Fred W. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1961)
    With improved harvesting machinery, farmers tend to harvest grain earlier to prevent loss by lodging or inclement weather. This often results in grain being too high in moisture for normal storage, and means that it must ...
  • Shivas, S.D.; Kropf, Donald H.; Hunt, Melvin C.; Kendell, J.L.A.; Dayton, A.D.; Kastner, Curtis L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1983)
    Adding .05 and .10% ascorbic acid to ground beef resulted in brighter color and longer display life, more intense taste panel beef flavor and less rancidity. Those advantages should encourage centralized retail cutting and ...
  • Brandt, Robert T., Jr.; Kuhl, G.L.; Brazle, F.K.; Corah, L.R.; Pope, Ronald V. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1990)
    Feed value of aspirated oat liftings (AOL), a by-product of the oat milling industry, was evaluated by using it to replace 33, 67, or 100% of 36 lb/bu oats in a growing diet fed to heifers. Ammonia treatment of AOL was ...
