    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 ...
  • Stroade, Jeri; Schroeder, Ted C. (Kansas State University. North American Institute for Beef Economic Research, 2010-05-13)
    Potential introduction of contagious foreign animal diseases in the US has escalated in recent years with increased global commerce and travel and concerns about bioterrorism. In the event of a contagious animal disease ...
  • Gregory, K.E.; Cundiff, L.V.; Koch, R.M.; Koohmaraie, M.; Dikeman, Michael E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-09-17)
    Data from nine parental breeds and three composite populations described in the preceding article were used to calculate heritabilities and phenotypic and genotypic correlations among carcass and meat traits. Phenotypic ...
  • Gregory, K.E.; Cundiff, L.V.; Koch, R.M.; Koohmaraie, M.; Dikeman, Michael E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-10-05)

  • Glaze, J.B. Jr.; Schalles, R.R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-08-23)
    Performance records of 1459 Polled Hereford cattle were analyzed to estimate heritabilities and genetic correlations of beef cattle traits from birth to maturity. Estimates of heritability (h2) for birth weight (BWT), ...
  • Splan, R.K.; Cundiff, L.V.; Van Vleck, L.D.; Dikeman, Michael E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-08-04)
    Estimates of heritabilities and genetic correlations were obtained from weaning weight records of 23,681 crossbred steers and heifers, and carcass data of 4,094 crossbred steers using REML applied to animal models. Direct ...
  • Schalles, R.R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-12-10)
    Frame score is a convenient way of describing the skeletal size of cattle. With adequate height growth curves most animals should maintain the same frame score throughout their life, while their actual height increases ...
  • Ortiz, X.A.; Smith, J.F.; Bradford, Barry J.; Harner, Joseph P.; Oddy, A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-11-23)
    Developing management strategies for Korral Kools will help producers provide cooling in the housing area while minimizing the operational cost of the Korral Kools system. Two experiments were conducted at a dairy in ...
  • Irsik, M.; Langemeier, Michael R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-08-04)
    This study examined the impacts of animal health and death loss on the economic performance of feedlot cattle. Using data from two feedlots in western Kansas, the impact of animal health on economic performance was ...
  • Abdelgadir, I.E.O.; Cochran, R.C.; Vanzant, E.S.; Titgemeyer, Evan C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-09-02)
    We evaluated the potential of several commercially available proteases for use in predicting the undegradable intake protein (UIP) concentrations o f alfalfa and prairie hay. Protease s differed in their estimates o f ...
  • Newton, E.A.; Stevenson, Jeffrey S.; Davis, Duane L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-04-19)
    In two different experiments, we studied the influence of: 1) separating litters from their dams (altered suckling) during the last 8 days of lactation, which included a change in housing and social interaction with other ...
  • Stevenson, Jeffrey S.; Schmidt, W.E.; Davis, Duane L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-04-30)
    Onset of estrus in gilts fed allyl-trenbolone for either 14 or 18 days was controlled effectively. The stage of the cycle at the beginning of treatment had little effect on the synchronization response. More than 97% of ...
  • Davis, Duane L.; Stevenson, Jeffrey S.; Schmidt, W.E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-04-30)
    Gilts were artificially inseminated on the fifth, sixth and seventh days after estrous synchronization with altrenogest (scheduled AI). Contemporary controls also were synchronized but were checked for estrus twice daily. ...
