  • Sargeant, J.M.; Gillespie, J.R.; Hyatt, D.R.; Galland, J.C.; Bohra, L.K.; Oberst, Richard D.; Phebus, Randall K.; Hays, Michael P. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1998)
    Fecal samples from cows and calves and samples of water sources were collected monthly for 8 months from 10 Kansas cow-calf farms to determine the prevalence of E. coli O157:H7. The bacterium was found in 8% of fecal ...
  • Yeary, T.; Nietfeld, Jerome C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2002)
    Samples from cattle with pneumonia and/or arthritis were cultured for Mycoplasma. When requested, the Mycoplasma isolates were further identified to species by polymerase chain reaction or restriction fragment ...
  • Davidson, H.J.; Stokka, Gerald L.; Taul, Tom (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1999)
    This cross-sectional evaluation of cattle from a sale barn was completed to identify the prevalence of ocular lesions. A total of 100 cattle (91 cows and 9 bulls) was examined as they were being processed through a ...
  • Hyatt, D.R.; Galland, J.C.; Crupper, S.; Hawkins, L.; Anderson, N.V.; Stokka, Gerald L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1998)
    Salmonella, Campylobacter, and Eschericia coli O157:H7 are important foodborne pathogens, but longitudinal studies of their prevalence in beef cattle feedyards have not been done. Our long- term study involved 24,556 ...
  • Schoneweis, D.A.; Bartel, R.K.; Stuart, J.G.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1971)
    Fourteen litters (120 pigs) were used to study effects of iron injections on day one or day four after birth. No differences were detected in weight gains, hematological values of hemoglobin, packed cell volume, or red ...
  • Phillips, R.M.; Anderson, N.V. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1979)
    Work on colibacillosis has been concentrated on isolating and identifying enterotoxigenic E. coli from specimens submitted to the Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory. Strains of enterotoxigenic E. coli isolated in the laboratory ...
  • Schalles, R.R.; Milleret, R.J.; McKee, M.; Olson, J.R.; Evans, J.; Carnahan, D.L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1972)
    Respiratory diseases of weanling calves are a continuous problem for ranchers. Each case is estimated to represent a $10 to $20 loss through veterinary costs, decreased gains, and death losses. There is also some question ...
  • Stokka, Gerald L.; Smith, J.F.; Dunham, J.R.; Van Anne, T. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1996)
    Always consult your veterinarian when making vaccination decisions. The most common errors are failing to give booster immunizations and doing so at the incorrect time. Animal comfort is a greater determinant of production ...
  • Schroeder, Ted C.; Goodwin, B.K. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1990)
    The short- and long-run daily price relationships between cash and futures markets for live hogs were examined over the 1975-89 period. Price discovery generally originates in the futures market with about 65% of new ...
  • Schroeder, Ted C.; Ward, Clement E. (Kansas State University. North American Institute for Beef Economic Research, 2006)
    Concerns about potential impacts of captive supply on fed cattle prices have been present for several years in both Canada and the US. In Canada, the magnitude of concern escalated during closure of the US border to ...
  • Ward, Clement E.; Schroeder, Ted C. (2007)
    As cattle markets have transitioned from predominantly cash market sealed-bid or negotiated price discovery to more formula pricing, marketing agreements, forward contracts, and packer-owned cattle feeding, concerns about ...
  • Mintert, J.; Ward, C.E.; Peel, D.S.; Schroeder, Ted C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1998)
    Interviews were conducted with cattle feeders, beef packers, and others involved in the beef industry to discern their concerns about fed-cattle price discovery. Three issues predominated. First was the need to better ...
  • McCoy, J.H.; Price, R.V.; Manuel, M.L.; Ward, C.E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1975)
    Recent increases in specialized production of feeder pigs has stimulated interest in various methods of pricing pigs outside traditional marketing channels. Most such methods are either negotiated pricing or formula ...
  • Van Cleef, E.H.C.B.; Uwituze, S.; Van Bibber-Krueger, C.L.; Miller, K.A.; Drouillard, James S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2013)
    Crude glycerin has increased in availability as a feedstock for cattle as a result of expansion of the biodiesel industry in the United States. This byproduct, when ingested by cattle, is fermented by ruminal bacteria ...
  • Forbes, M.S.; Jeon, I.J.; Schmidt, Karen A. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1996)
    A new frozen yogurt manufacturing procedure that is easily adaptable to the current practices of the frozen yogurt industry has been developed with probiotic culture and ultrafiltrated milk. The ultrafiltrated milk ...
