  • Laudert, S.B. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1988)
    Nearly 83,000 heifers were observed at slaughter during 1986 and 1987 to determine their reproductive status. Slightly less than 4 percent were found to be pregnant. Highest incidences of pregnancy were found during the ...
  • Hunt, Melvin C.; Killinger, K.M.; Campbell, R.E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1999)
    We measured the incidence of premature browning during cooking in ground beef that was purchased from retail supermarkets and prepared using common household procedures. Patties made from meat on the outer portion ...
  • Ward, S.; Odde, Kenneth G.; Kiracofe, G.; McKee, M. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1979)
    Weaning calves from cows that had not cycled after calving caused a higher percentage of cows to show estrous in the next 25 days than cows suckling calves. However, 78.3% of the nonsuckling cows had short cycles (7-10 ...
  • Scheffel, M.E.; Shirley, John E. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1995)
    Twenty-four Holstein cows were used to study the effect of dietary fat on milk production and metabolic traits. Whole cottonseed and tallow were used as fat sources and substituted into the control diet on an ...
  • Heidenreich, J.; Aperce, C.; Drouillard, James S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010)
    Cattle have been implicated as carriers of the human pathogen Escherichia coli O157:H7. Contamination of the beef supply by E. coli O157 can occur during harvest and processing, causing costly recalls or human illness. ...
  • Schulte, Leslie R.; Ballard, T.; Samarakoon, Thilani N.; Yao, Libin; Vadlani, Praveen V.; Staggenborg, Scott A.; Rezac, Mary E. (2013)
    Environmental temperature directly influences the lipid profile produced by oilseeds. If growing temperatures increase, as is predicted by current models, the precise profile of lipids produced are likely to change. This ...
  • Stickel, A.; Houser, Terry A.; Olson, K. C.; Gerlach, B.; Goehring, B.; Pacheco, A.; Macek, M.; Parsons, G.; Miller, K.; Thompson, L.; Dikeman, Michael E.; Unruh, John A.; Blasi, Dale A.; Drouillard, James S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2011)
    With increasing feed costs, producers may be able to utilize forage resources to help cattle gain weight before entering a high-concentrate finishing phase. In theory, heavy stocker cattle need less time on feed before ...
  • Nix, D.W.; Lamb, G.C.; Traffas, V.; Corah, L.R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1998)
    Weanling Angus × Hereford heifers were purchased by a commercial heifer development operation from 12 sources. Heifers were fed a silage-based diet through an initial developmental period and then were retained or ...
  • Cochran, R.C.; Brandt, Robert T., Jr.; Vanzant, E.S.; Clary, E.M.; Owensby, Clenton E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1991)
    During the initial 3 years of a 4-year experiment, average daily gain tended to increase in direct proportion to increasing levels of grain sorghum supplementation (2.3, 2.5 and 2.7 lb gain per day for the control and ...
  • Cochran, R.C.; Brandt, Robert T., Jr.; Vanzant, E.S.; Clary, E.M.; Owensby, Clenton E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1990)
    During the first 2 yr of a 4-yr experiment, increasing the level of grain sorghum supplementation (from 2 to 4 Ibid) for steers managed within an intensive-early stocking program tended to increase average daily gain in ...
  • Montgomery, Sean P.; Sindt, J.J.; Farran, T.B.; LaBrune, H.J.; Hunter, R.D.; Higgins, James J.; Nutsch, T.A.; Drouillard, James S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2000)
    One hundred sixty-four crossbred beef steers were used to determine optimal Rumensin ® concentrations in limit-fed, high-energy, growing diets. Diets contained 30, 40, or 50 grams of Rumensin per ton of dry matter ...
  • Davis, Duane L.; Stevenson, Jeffrey S.; Minton, J. Ernest (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1987)
    Management and biological factors combine to limit litter size in swine herds. With present technology, improving litter size depends upon increasing the number born in the first litter and prolonging sow longevity. Methods ...
  • Stevenson, Jeffrey S.; Shirley, John E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2003)
    Increased milking frequency during partial or whole lactations increases milk yields, but generally reduces percentages of milk fat and protein. Because of greater milk volume, total fat and protein are not reduced. ...
  • Dietz, Garret J.; Houser, Terry A.; Gerlach, Bryce M.; Adhikari, Koushik; Gonzalez, John M.; Unruh, John A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2014)
    Top sirloin butts are commonly blade-tenderized to significantly increase tenderness, but minimal data have shown the relationship between blade tenderization and color stability as well as the effect of extended postmortem ...
  • Cartmill, J. A.; Rozell, Timothy G.; El-Zarkouny, S. Z.; Smith, J. F.; Stevenson, Jeffrey S. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1999)
    Cows exposed to heat stress before or after calving or both are prone to reduced fertility because of reduced expression of estrus and less embryonic survival if pregnant. Cows calving on three dairy farms during the ...
  • Bailey, E.A.; Titgemeyer, Evan C.; Cochran, R.C.; Jones, Timothy J.; Olson, K. C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2012)
    Pre- and postpartum deficiencies of metabolizable protein have been identified as potentially limiting to productivity of beef cows and calves. Pre-partum supplementation of forage-based diets with ruminally undegraded ...
  • Richert, B.T.; Goodband, Robert D.; Tokach, Michael D.; Nelssen, Jim L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1996)
