  • Hinojosa Verdin, S.; Hachmeister, K.A.; Smith, J. Scott (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2003)
    Heterocyclic amines (HCAs) are compounds present at part per billion levels in fried, grilled, broiled, barbecued and smoked meats. Most of these compounds are highly mutagenic, as demonstrated by the Ames test using ...
  • Abdulkarim, B.G.; Smith, J. Scott (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1999)
    he natural antioxidant carnosine, moisture retention by covered cooking, and low temperature cooking were evaluated as ways to inhibit heterocyclic amine (HCA) formation in fried ground beef. Samples were fried at 375EF ...
  • Brent, B.E.; Adepoju, A.; Portela, F.; Richardson, D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1968)
    Rumen bacteria elaborate an enzyme, urease. Urease is capable of breaking down urea to ammonia and carbon dioxide. Rumen bacteria then incorporate the ammonia into new amino acids and bacterial protein. Thus, urea can ...
  • Thompson, L.; Schneider, C.; Parson, G.; Miller, K.; Reinhardt, Christopher D.; Drouillard, James S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010)
    Using a growth promotant at the correct time of finishing is critical for maximizing profit potential. Previous studies have shown that zilpaterol-HCl (Zilmax; Intervet/ Schering-Plough Animal Health, Millsboro, DE) ...
  • Schoneweis, D.; Nelson, M.; Davis, Duane L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1994)
    This experiment tested the hypothesis that an injection of vitamin A on the day of first detected estrus would improve reproductive performance of gilts. Gilts (432) were assigned to either receive vitamin A (1,000,000 ...
  • McFarlane, B.J.; Stokka, G.L.; Basaraba, R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1996)
    One 550 lb steer was injected subcutaneously twice, once on each side of the neck, with 5 milliliters of Ultrabac 7 ficlostridial vaccine with a new 16 gauge, 3/4 inch needle. The injections were given 30 days and 36 ...
  • Hinds, M.; Brethour, J.; Bolsen, K.; Ilg, H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1982)
    An inoculant (Sila-bac) and a non-protein nitrogen (LSA-100) silage additive were evaluated with whole-plant, forage sorghum silage. Sila-bac silage had the fastest temperature rise and peaked at 10 C above its ...
  • Hinds, M.; Brethour, J.; Bolsen, K. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1983)
    Inoculant (1177 in one trial) and non-protein nitrogen (LSA-100 in two trials) silage additives were evaluated with whole-plant forage sorghum silage. Steers fed LSA-100 silage gained faster than steers fed control ...
  • Bolsen, K.; Kireh, B.; Laytimi, A.; Hoover, J.; Ilg, H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1988)
    Whole-plant corn silages were treated with Ecosyl® in one trial and Biomate4ll or Silagest® in a second trial. In both trials, the silages were well preserved and moderately stable in air during the feed-out period. ...
  • Carvalho, Maria Otília; Faro, Alexandra; Subramanyam, Bhadriraju (2013)
    The objectives of this study were to characterize the spatial distribution of the most abundant insect species identified in the rice plant, optimize the sampling program, develop and validate a fixed-precision enumerative ...
  • Hill, S.E.; Oleen, Brandon E.; Hollenbeck, W.R.; Vahl, Christopher I.; Blasi, Dale A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2013)
    Stocker cattle grazing pastures during the summer months face challenges due to horn flies, which can result in reduced weight gains and less efficient use of forages. One strategy for controlling horn flies is ...
  • Lynch, G.L.; Zoellner, K.O.; Broce, A.B.; Riley, Jack G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1982)
    When both cows and calves were double-tagged (one tag per ear) with ear tags impregnated with fenvalerate (Ectrin) or permethrin (Atroban), the calves gained faster (P<.01) than when neither cows nor calves were tagged. ...
  • Morrison, D.G.; Kiracofe, G.H.; Heersche, G. Jr.; Schalles, R.R.; McKee, M. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1975)
    Eighty-three cows were each treated with a nine-day Syncro-mate B ear implant and one estrogen and progesterone injection. After implant removal, cows were artificially inseminated either 48, 54 or 60 hours later or 12 ...
  • Phatak, A.P.; Stevenson, Jeffrey S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2004)
    A controlled field study examined conception rates after two timed-AI (TAI) breeding protocols conducted on two commercial dairy farms. Estrous cycles in postpartum lactating cows were presynchronized with two ...
  • Park, A.F.; Defrain, J.M.; Meyer, M. J.; Titgemeyer, Evan C.; Marston, T.T.; Gleghorn, J.F.; Wankel, L.E.; Shirley, John E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2000)
    Eight primiparous and nine multiparous Holstein cows were used in a randomized block design to determine the effect of wet corn gluten feed in the diet during the last 21 days of gestation on dry matter intake and early ...
  • Peischel, A.; Schalles, R.R.; Owensby, Clenton E.; Smith, E.F. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1980)
    Adequate milk production by the cow to promote fast gain by her calf the first three months is important for heavy weaning weights. Calves consume considerable range forage by three months of age, and milk consumption begins ...
  • Fick, Walter H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2000)
    Two experiments were conducted near Maple Hill, KS in 1998 to compare the effectiveness of herbicides and mowing used alone and in combination for control of sericea lespedeza (Lespedeza cuneata). Remedy® at 0.5 lb/acre ...
