  • Smith, W.H.; Holland, L.A.; Wheat, J. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1956)
    The purebred Shorthorn cattle breeding project, established to study the production traits and the effects of inbreeding, was continued during the last year. Two inbred lines were established by the use of the two herd ...
  • 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, 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • Bolsen, K.K.; Brent, B.E.; Siefers, M.K.; Huck, G.L.; Turner, J.E.; Young, Matthew A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1996)
    Results at Kansas State University from over 200 laboratory-scale trials and 28 farm-scale trials showed that bacterial inoculants consistently improved preservation efficiency and nutritive value of the ensiled material. ...
  • Bolsen, K.K.; Young, Matthew A.; Siefers, M.K.; Huck, G.L. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1995)
    Results at Kansas State University from over 200 laboratory-scale trials and 28 farmscale trials showed that bacterial inoculants consistently improved preservation efficiency and nutritive value of the ensiled material. ...
  • Löest, C.A.; Tigemeyer, E.C.; Johnson, B.J.; Trater, A.M.; Lambert, B.D.; Drouillard, James S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2002)
    Four ruminally cannulated Holstein steers (749 lb) were used in a 4 × 4 Latin square experiment to evaluate the benefits of supplementing digestive enzymes and dietary buffers to a soybean hull-based diet fed to steers ...
  • Rutkoski, Jessica E.; Poland, Jesse A.; Jannink, Jean-Luc; Sorrells, Mark E. (2013)
    Genomic selection, a breeding method that promises to accelerate rates of genetic gain, requires dense, genome-wide marker data. Genotyping-by-sequencing can generate a large number of de novo markers. However, without a ...
  • Richert, B.T.; Goodband, Robert D.; Tokach, Michael D.; Nelssen, Jim L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1995)
    Mammary secretory tissue from six (three each of parity 1 and 2) lactating sows (d 10 to 17 of lactation) was obtained via biopsy for in vitro incubation to determine CO2 production fr01TI individual branched chain amino ...
  • Löest, C.A.; Armendariz, C.K.; Titgemeyer, Evan C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2000)
    An in vitro study was conducted to evaluate the degradation of betaine sources by rumen microbes. Five sources of betaine (anhydrous betaine, betaine-HCl, feed-grade betaine, lipidcoated betaine, and concentrated ...
  • Umoh, J.E.; Harbers, L.H.; Smith, E.F.; Whitney, J.; Boggs, Don (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1977)
    We used an in vitro digestibility technique to determine the nutritive value of predominately native bluestem forage on burned and nonburned Flint Hills pastures. We also collected forage samples via esophageal fistulas ...
  • Healy, B.J.; Bramel-Cox, P.J.; Hines, Robert H.; Hancock, Joe D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1993)
    Nutritional value of eight sorghum hybrids, resulting from matings of four male lines with two male-sterile lines, was determined. The male lines were two sorghums with consistently high in vitro digestibility (High-digestibility ...
  • Sonon, R.N. Jr.; Bolsen, K.K.; Brent, B.E.; Harbers, L.H.; Boyer, John E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1994)
    Eleven forage sorghum cultivars and one grain sorghum hybrid were used to determine the effect of individual plant parts on in vitro dry matter digestibility (IVDMD) of sorghum silage. IVDMD was highest for the head ...
  • Abdelgadir, I.E.O.; Cochran, R.C.; Vanzant, E.S.; Titgemeyer, Evan C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1996)
    Ruminal degradation of alfalfa and prairie hay protein was estimated using a proteolytic enzyme from Streptomyces griseus with or without pretreatment with cellulase or a broad spectrum carbohydrase (driselase). Estimates ...
  • Elwakeel, E.A.; Johnson, B.J.; Titgemeyer, Evan C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2004)
