    Biological tenderness differences between longissimus muscles from 3/8 and 5/8 Sahiwal (Bos indicus) x Hereford-Angus and from Hereford-Angus (Bos taurus) were evaluated. No significant breed cross effects were observed ...
  • Goodband, Robert D.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1985)
    Three-hundred and ten crossbred finishing pigs averaging 110 lbs. were utilized in two growth trials to evaluate the effects of feeding barley to finishing hogs. In both experiments, there were no differences in average ...
  • Retta, Amare; Wagner, Larry E.; Tatarko, John; Todd, Timothy C. (2013)
    Studies were conducted using military vehicles to determine the influence of repeated traffic on soil compaction and vegetative losses. The resultant data will eventually be incorporated into models such as the Wind Erosion ...
  • Schroeder, Ted C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1993)
    Live hog prices must reflect end-use value to convey market information from consumers to producers. Precise end-use value is excessively costly to trace for each carcass given current technology. Pricing structures must ...
  • Brown, T.L.; Peters, P.E.; Kropf, Donald H.; Phebus, Randall K.; Nutsch, Abbey L.; Kastner, Curtis L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1998)
    The steam pasteurization process (SPS 400) developed by Frigoscandia Food Process Systems (Bellevue, WA) was effective in reducing bacterial populations in both laboratory and commercial settings. The objective of ...
  • Thulin, A.J.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1979)
    Two trials were conducted to evaluate the management practice of comingling litters one week before weaning to help reduce weaning stress. Pigs which were comingled before weaning gained slightly faster the first two weeks ...
  • Jacela, J.Y.; Brown, P.; Tokach, Michael D.; DeRouchey, Joel M.; Nelssen, Jim L.; Goodband, Robert D.; Dritz, Steven S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2008)
    A total of 1,129 pigs were used in a 56-d study to evaluate the effect of a commercial enzyme on growth performance and assess its energy replacement value in swine diets. Pigs were blocked on the basis of pen weights and ...
  • Ortega, M.T.; Thippareddi, H.; Phebus, Randall K.; Marsden, James L.; Kastner, Curtis L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2003)
    The USDA Food Safety and Inspection Service has issued a “zero tolerance” for Listeria monocytogenes in ready-to-eat meat and poultry products. The Food Safety and Inspection Service recommends that consumers “Reheat ...
  • Schalles, R.R.; Zoellner, K.O.; Meier, R.J. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1972)
    Crossbred cows are common but interested in using crossbred bulls is recent. Little information is available on use of crossbred bulls, so advice and recommendations have been based on genetic principles rather than research. ...
