  • Richardson, D.; Soule, R.P. Jr.; Aubel, C.E. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1955)
    Duroc Jersey and Poland China littermates of the same sex were used in each trial; however, males were used in trials 1 and 3, and females in trials 2 and 4. The pigs were selected for uniformity as much as possible and ...
  • Koch, B.A.; Yu, J.T. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1962)
    Pigs used were both barrows and gilts, either Duroc or Black Poland China breeds. All pigs used in the study were approximately the same age when they went on test. The heavier pigs were assigned to lot 4. They were self-fed ...
  • Ryu, Si Hyun; Fung, Daniel Y. C. (2010)
    The antimicrobial effects of a commercially available, buffered sodium citrate (BSC) were evaluated for the reduction of total aerobic bacteria count, Salmonella Typhimurium, Escherichia coli O157:H7, Listeria monocytogenes ...
  • Ceylan, E.; Marsden, James L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2003)
    We studied the antimicrobial efficacy of buffered sodium citrate and a combination of buffered sodium citrate and sodium diacetate on natural aerobic microflora of ground beef stored at 39°F. For non-treated control ...
  • Coger, R.R.; Franken, L.J.; Herald, T.; Phebus, Randall K.; Marsden, James L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2005)
    Beef carcasses and fresh fabricated beef products potentially can be contaminated with disease causing microorganisms (pathogens) via animal dressing procedures and contamination from the plant environment or workers. ...
  • Mayer, A.L.; Gunderson, J.A.; Lobaton-Sulabo, A.S.; Boyle, Elizabeth A. E.; Houser, Terry A.; Higgins, James J. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2008)
    The Centers for Disease Control and Pre- vention estimate that 2,500 people become infected with listerosis each year by consuming food containing Listeria monocytogenes. Certain ready-to-eat meat and poultry products, ...
  • Rogers, D.P.; Vorhies, M.W.; Chengappa, M. M. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1993)
    A retrospective study was conducted to determine the prevalence of antimicrobial resistance among six important bacterial pathogens of bovine origin. The study extended from June 1990 through December 1992 and included ...
  • Estrada-Munoz, R.; Boyle, Elizabeth A. E.; Marsden, James L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1997)
    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. ...
