  • 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 ...
  • Groesbeck, C.N.; Neill, C.R.; Goodband, Robert D.; Tokach, Michael D.; Nelssen, Jim L.; DeRouchey, Joel M.; Dritz, Steven S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2005)
    Although the importance of thoroughly mixing diets is often emphasized, little data is available to quantify the impact of inadequate mixing on pig growth performance. Therefore, a 28-d trial was conducted to evaluate the ...
  • Peterson, Jeffrey M.; Boisvert, Richard N. (2004)
    This article proposes a method to accommodate asymmetric information on farmers’ risk preferences in designing voluntary environmental policies. By incorporating stochastic efficiency rules in a mechanism design problem, ...
  • Gerlach, B.M.; Houser, Terry A.; Hollis, Larry C.; Tokach, Michael D.; Nietfeld, Jerome C.; Higgins, James J.; Anderson, Gary A.; Goehring, B.L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2009)
    A total of 198 nursery age pigs were used to evaluate the difference in the occurrence of injection site abscesses between needle-free jet injection and conventional needle-and-syringe injection systems. Pigs were fed for ...
  • Gaines, J.; Galland, J.; Leedle, J.; Basaraba, R.; Anderson, David E. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1993)
    Digital papillomatosis (hairy warts) was diagnosed in a dairy herd with a high level of lameness (20%). Warts ranged from mild to moderate to severe, with severity increasing with length of lactations. All milking ...
  • 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 ...
