    An acute Actinobacillus pleuropneumonia challenge was used to study changes in rectal and radiant surface temperatures over 18 h. From 3.5 to 15 h after challenge, rectal temperatures were elevated in challenged pigs ...
  • Warren, J.H.; Blum, J.; Schalles, R.R.; Kiracofe, G.; Henry, K.; Hultine, V. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-03-04)
    Severa1 reproductive traits of yearling Polled Hereford bulls were evaluated during and immediately after a 140-day feeding test. Results indicate that concentration of sperm and percentages of live sperm are heritable ...
  • Schalles, R.R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-09-07)
    A form of congenital hypotrichosis, commonly known as rat-tail, is characterized by the colored hair anywhere on the body being short, curly, malformed, and sometimes sparse and an abnormal tail switch. The "rat-tail" ...
  • Hinojosa Verdin, S.; Hachmeister, K.A.; Smith, J. Scott (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-08-04)
    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, 2010-08-23)
    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, 2011-03-17)
    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.; Parsons, G.; Miller, K.; Reinhardt, Christopher D.; Drouillard, James S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2011-03-30)
    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, 2010-03-26)
    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, Gerald L.; Basaraba, R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-09-09)
    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. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 2010-12-15)
    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 ...
  • Hinds, M.; Brethour, J.; Bolsen, K.; Ilg, H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-01-27)
    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 ...
  • Bolsen, K.; Kireh, B.; Laytimi, A.; Hoover, J.; Ilg, H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-11-22)
    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 (2013-08-26)
