  • Orr, D.E. Jr (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1987)
    Successful swine producers must be adaptable, utilize new technology, and know their herd production levels and costs if they want to alter those production factors that have an economic impact. A summary of the effect ...
  • Douthit, Teresa L.; Bormann, Jennifer M.; Bello, Nora M. (2014)
    The objectives of this study were to 1) assess the correlation between hoof surface temperature and ultrasonographic measurements of digital blood vessels in horses, and 2) evaluate their potential as predictors for clinical ...
  • Harms, Ashley Marie Raes; Presley, DeAnn R.; Hettiarachchi, Ganga M.; Thien, Stephen J. (2013)
    Participation in urban agriculture is growing throughout the United States; however, potential soil contaminants in urban environments present challenges. Individuals in direct contact with urban soil should be aware of ...
  • Meyer, M. J.; Sukup, D.; Schmidt, Karen A.; Shirley, John E. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service., 1998)
    Few choices exist for a mobile, rapid, and nonsubjective assessment of mastitic infection in bovine milk. This project evaluated the effectiveness of using the Biotrace® raw milk quality ATP bioluminescence assay to ...
  • Zhang, Dadong; Bowden, Robert L.; Yu, Jianming; Carver, Brett F.; Bai, Guihua (2014)
    Stem rust has become a renewed threat to global wheat production after the emergence and spread of race TTKSK (also known as Ug99) and related races from Africa. To elucidate U.S. winter wheat resistance genes to stem rust, ...
  • Tesso, Tesfaye T.; Tirfessa, Alemu; Mohammed, Hussein (2011)
    The Ethio-Sudan region is recognized as the center of origin and diversity for cultivated sorghum. All major races of the crop are widely grown in Ethiopia with durras being dominant. The objective of the present study was ...
  • Sukumaran, Sivakumar; Xiang, Wenwen; Bean, Scott R.; Pedersen, Jeffrey F.; Kresovich, Stephen; Tuinstra, Mitchell R.; Tesso, Tesfaye T.; Hamblin, Martha T.; Yu, Jianming (2012)
    Knowledge of the genetic bases of grain quality traits will complement plant breeding efforts to improve the end-use value of sorghum [Sorghum bicolor (L.) Moench]. Candidate gene association mapping was used on a diverse ...
  • Dingwell, R.T.; Leslie, K.E.; Sargeant, J.M.; Schukken, Y.H.; Timms, L.L.; Shirley, John E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2002)
    Data from 300 cows and 1,178 quarters were analyzed to determine factors associated with new intramammary infections (IMI). Teatends that were cracked and teats that did not close during the dry period were 1.7 and ...
  • Frank, Brian J.; Schlegel, Alan J.; Stone, Loyd R.; Kirkham, Mary B. (2013)
    Water supply for crop use is the primary factor controlling corn (Zea mays L.) grain yield in the west-central Great Plains. With water supply varying as production systems range from dryland through irrigated, selecting ...
  • Meyer, M. J.; Schmidt, Karen A. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1997)
    Four areas of the milking parlor were evaluated for effective cleaning and sanitation using total aerobic counts (standard plate count) and ATP bioluminescence (ATPB) techniques. Whereas the plate counts only monitor ...
  • Breiner, S.J.; Grau, S.A.; Barnhardt, B.B.; Bryant, A.M.; Boone, Kris; Blasi, Dale A.; Schroeder, Ted C.; Breiner, Ryan M. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2007)
    The introduction of a National Animal Identification System (NAIS) into the United States has generated much confusion and controversy. The goal of the NAIS is to utilize 48-hour traceback in the event of an animal disease ...
  • Campos, Manuel; Phillips, Thomas W. (2014)
    Three attract-and-kill formulations, a gel, a wax panel, and a plastic cylinder were tested in simulated warehouses at three densities of devices and at three densities of moths, Plodia interpunctella Hübner, per room. Wax ...
  • Koch, B.A.; Allee, G.L.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1975)
    Duroc weaned pigs given a choice of feed containing an aromatic or sugar chose diets containing 5% sugar. The preference pattern was altered by pre-weaning feeding in that pigs tended to consume the initial ration. ...
  • Stevenson, Jeffrey S. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2013)
    Detection of estrus can be facilitated by use of automated activity monitors that measure physical activity. Increased physical activity is largely correlated with estrus. Our objective was to determine when ovulation ...
  • Jeon, I.J. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1986)
    In 1985 the annual sales of dairy products on the average grew 3.3%, and is expected to grow 6.4% in 1986, according to the U.S. Department of Commerce. This positive growth was attributed in part to increased consumer ...
  • Aggarwal, Rajat; Subramanyam, Subhashree; Zhao, Chaoyang; Chen, Ming-Shun; Harris, Marion O.; Stuart, Jeff J. (2014)
    Highly specialized obligate plant-parasites exist within several groups of arthropods (insects and mites). Many of these are important pests, but the molecular basis of their parasitism and its evolution are poorly understood. ...
  • Blasi, Dale A.; Epp, M.; White, Bradley J. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2009)
    Cattle are commonly moved between geographic regions by using commercial transport carriers, and the vast majority of cattle are transported at least one time during their lives. Both handling and travel associated with ...
