    The purebred Shorthorn cattle breeding program was continued during 1961 according to the breeding program initiated in 1949. Inbreeding of the two lines has been continued. The Wernacre Premier line is in its fourth ...
  • Smith, W.H.; Holland, L.A.; Ibsen, H.L. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1954)
    The purebred Shorthorn cattle breeding project proceeded according to plan during the last year. The project has been planned to facilitate the collection of production data that will be used to devise and test breeding ...
  • Smith, W.H.; Wheat, J.D. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1961)
    The purebred Shorthorn cattle breeding project was continued during 1960 according to the breeding program adopted when the study was initiated in 1949. Two inbred lines were established and have been continued. The Wernacre ...
  • Smith, W.; Smith, E.; Ibsen, H.L.; Holland, L. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1952)
    The purebred Shorthorn herd maintained at Manhattan is being used as a primary basis for the purebred cattle breeding investigations which started at the Kansas station three years ago. The project is still in its ...
  • Smith, W.H.; Smith, E.F.; Ibsen, H.L. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1951)
    A National Beef Cattle Breeding Research Program has been initiated and is organized in three areas which are referred to as the Western, Southern, and North Central Regions in the United States. The Kansas Agricultural ...
  • Smith, W.H.; Holland, L.A.; Ibsen, H.L. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1953)
    The purebred Shorthorn cattle breeding project has proceeded according to plan this year. The project was planned to facilitate the collection of production data which will be used to devise testing and breeding procedures ...
  • Smith, W.H.; Akinokun, J.; Schalles, R.R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1968)
    Two inbred lines of purebred Shorthorn cattle were established and progressively developed, to study production traits and effects of inbreeding. Inbreeding was initiated in the Wernace Premier Line in 1949 and in the ...
  • Martinez, Adrian; Maier, Dirk E. (2014)
    The feasibility of utilizing cellulosic biomass such as corn stover as an energy feedstock is dominated by factors such as facility location, feedstock availability, and transportation cost. Previous research showed the ...
  • Smith, W.H.; Schalles, R. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1967)
    The purebred Shorthorn cattle breeding project was continued during 1966 according to the original breeding program. Two inbred lives were established in 1949. The Wernacre Premier line is now in the fifth generation of ...
  • Smith, W.H.; Wheat, J.D.; Spies, H.G. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1963)
    The purebred Shorthorn cattle breeding program was continued during 1962 without modification of breeding plans. Inbreeding was continued in the two lines. The Wernacre Premier line is in its firth generation and the Mercury ...
  • Smith, W.H.; Wheat, J.D.; Spies, H.G. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1964)
    The purebred Shorthorn beef cattle breeding project was continued during 1963 without modification. Inbreeding was continued in the two separate lines, which have remained closed to outside breeding since the study was ...
  • Sammel, L.M.; Hunt, Melvin C.; Kropf, Donald H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2001)
    The beef inside round muscle, especially the deep portion, has poor color stability, a troublesome condition for the meat industry. We examined influences of pre-rigor temperature and pH decline on chemistry of the inside ...
  • Goodband, Robert D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1990)
    Particle size reduction has a great impact on efficiency of feed utilization. Decreasing particle size improves digestibility of nutrients by increasing surface area and allowing for greater interaction with digestive ...
