  • Montgomery, Sean P.; Packard, R.L.; Forcherio, J.C.; Scott, R.R.; Blasi, Dale A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-08-04)
    Crossbred beef steers (n = 328, initially 495 lb) were used to determine the effects of energy supplementation on grazing and subsequent finishing performance of steers grazing early-season, native range. Treatments ...
  • Schroeder, G.F.; Moore, E.S.; Titgemeyer, Evan C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-01-22)
    In growing pigs, when protein supply is adequate, protein deposition increases with an increase in energy intake. However, when amino acid supply is limited, protein deposition does not respond to increases in energy ...
  • Bala, S.; Schmidt, Karen A. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2012-09-07)
    Cysteine is considered a conditional amino acid for certain subpopulations. For example, in elderly people, cysteine has been associated with diverse functional properties as a general antioxidant as well as a specific ...
  • Bolsen, K.; Ilg, H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-02-09)
    Enzyme (Ensila Plus) and non-protein nitrogen (Cold-flo) silage additives were evaluated with whole-plant corn silage. Cold-flo increased ensiling temperatures 6 to 80 F during the first week. Growing steers fed Ensila ...
  • Bolsen, K.; Ilg, H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-02-18)
    Four alfalfa silages (34 to 37% DM) were made May 30 and 31, 1979, as follows: 1) no additive (control), 2) 3 ounces of Ensila Plus per ton, 3) 1.0 lb of Si1a-1ator per ton, and 4) 1.5 1b of Silo-Guard per ton. Silos were ...
  • Curtis, J.L.; Lin, C.; Bolsen, K.K. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-11-02)
    Analysis of ensiling characteristics from late-bud, 10% bloom, and 50% bloom alfalfa, taken within each of four cuttings identified higher pre-ensiled dry matter (DM) content during the first two cuttings, whereas crop ...
  • Doud, C. W.; Zurek, Ludek (2012-05-18)
    Enterococcus faecalis is an important nosocomial pathogen and house flies have been implicated in the dissemination of this bacterium. In this study, GFP-expressing E. faecalis OG1RF:pMV158 was used to track the fate of ...
  • Koch, B.A.; Allee, G.L.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-05-07)
    A system for aerobic oxidation of waste has been used continuously since 1968 and is now functioning successfully. Figure 11.1 shows general design of the units. Originally "paddle wheels" were used to circulate liquid ...
  • Peterson, Jeffrey M.; Boisvert, Richard N.; de Gorter, Harry (2013-03-21)
    This paper derives the efficient set of policies for a multifunctional agriculture and relates them to trade. In general, efficiency cannot be achieved through simple output subsidies, but the efficient policies to move ...
  • Park, J.S.; Hines, Robert H.; Maloney, C.A.; Cao, H.; Lee, D.J.; Hancock, Joe D.; DeRouchey, Joel M. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-02-25)
    Three experiments were conducted to determine the effects of a sorghum-specific enzyme supplementation on growth performance of finishing pigs. Although positive trends occurred, the sorghum-specific enzymes used in our ...
  • Mundt, C. C.; Garrett, Karen A. (2012-06-04)
    Although plant disease epidemiology has focused on populations in which all host plants have the same genotype, mixtures of host genotypes are more typical of natural populations and offer promising options for deployment ...
  • Lin, Chunjian; Brent, B.E.; Bolsen, K.K.; Fung, Daniel Y. C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-10-15)
    Twenty three species and 306 strains of epiphytic lactic acid bacteria (LAB) were found for two cuttings of alfalfa, each harvested at three stages of maturity, and three whole-plant corn hybrids. Epiphytic LAB counts ...
  • Zolnerowich, Gregory; Rose, Mike (2008-05-29)
    Eretmocerus rui n. sp. imported from Hong Kong and released against Bemisia ( tabaci group) in Florida is described. This thelytokous species was recovered after release, but it is unknown if it is established in Florida.
  • Stevenson, Jeffrey S. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2012-09-20)
    Attention to heat detection will decrease reproduction losses and costs associated with extended calving intervals and high culling rates. Errors in diagnosing heat (errors of commission) and missed heats (errors of ...
  • Thippareddi, H.; Sporing, S.; Phebus, Randall K.; Marsden, James L.; Kastner, Curtis L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-08-23)
    The potential translocation of E. coli O157:H7 from the surface to the interior of whole muscle by blade tenderization was evaluated. Beef top sirloin subprimals were inoculated with 106 or 103 cfu/cm2 and passed ...
  • Ortega-Valenzuela, M.T.; Thippareddi, H.; Phebus, Randall K.; Marsden, James L.; Kastner, Curtis L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-08-06)
    Distribution of Escherichia coli O157:H7 in restructured beef from artificially inoculated meat pieces and destruction of E. coli O157:H7 in restructured beef steaks prepared from artificially inoculated meat was ...
  • Zuk, Alan J.; Bremer, Dale J.; Fry, Jack D. (2009-11-04)
    Conversion from perennial ryegrass (Lolium perenne L.) to zoysiagrass (Zoysia japonica Steud.) in the transition zone of the USA may reduce irrigation and fungicide requirements. However, environmental conditions under ...
  • St. John, Rodney; Fry, Jack; Bremer, Dale J.; Keeley, Steve (2009-11-04)
    Tall fescue (Festuca arundinacea Shreb.) is usually classified as a bunch grass, but produces short rhizomes. Newer tall fescue cultivars have been developed that reportedly produce longer and more numerous rhizomes. ...
  • Dhuyvetter, Kevin C.; Tokach, Michael D.; Jones, R.D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-03-12)
    Budgets were developed to help Kansas swine producers analyze the economics of separate-site production. Return on investment (ROI) was estimated at 9.5%in each of the three production phases. Returns over total costs were ...
