  • Smith, E.F.; Koch, B.A.; Cox, R.F. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1958)
    The wintering phase of this trial has been reported previously in Circular 349. A self-fed urea-molasses mixture is being compared to molasses self-fed plus soybean oil meal in an effort to determine if a urea-molassess mixture ...
  • Knight, John H.; Kluitenberg, Gerard J.; Kamai, Tamir; Hopmans, Jan W. (2012)
    The dual-probe heat-pulse (DPHP) method is useful for measuring soil thermal properties. Measurements are made with a sensor that has two parallel cylindrical probes: one for introducing a pulse of heat into the soil (heater ...

    Sensory characteristics were evaluated on a total of 80 loins from pigs fed diets containing glycerol, ractopamine HCl (RAC), and a combination of glycerol and RAC during the last 28 d prior to harvest. A total of 1,054 ...
  • Luchsinger, S.E.; Kropf, Donald H.; Garc a Zepeda, C.M.; Marsden, James L.; Hunt, Melvin C.; Hollingsworth, M.E.; Stroda, Sally L.; Chambers, Edgar, IV; Kastner, Curtis L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1996)
    Irradiation had minimal effects on flavor and texture of frozen or chilled vacuum-packaged boneless beef steaks. A dose level of 3.5 kilograys (kGy) reduced beef aroma in chilled steaks. Irradiation did not influence internal ...

    Irradiation did not influence bitter, bloody, burnt, chemical, fat-like, juiciness, liver-like, beef identity, metallic, rancid, sour, sweet, and toughness flavor/textural attributes, beef aroma, or off-odor in precooked ...
  • Luchsinger, S.E.; Kropf, Donald H.; Garc a Zepeda, C.M.; Marsden, James L.; Hunt, Melvin C.; Hollingsworth, M.E.; Stroda, Sally L.; Chambers, Edgar, IV; Kastner, Curtis L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1996)
    Irradiation of raw ground beef patties had minimal effects on flavor and aroma of patties after cooking. Oxidative rancidity increased when patties were irradiated in aerobic but not in vacuum packages. Irradiation of ...
  • Krasileva, Ksenia V.; Buffalo, Vince; Bailey, Paul; Pearce, Stephen; Ayling, Sarah; Tabbita, Facundo; Soria, Marcelo; Wang, Shichen; Akhunov, Eduard D.; Uauy, Cristobal; Dubcovsky, Jorge; IWGS Consortium (2013)
    Background: The high level of identity among duplicated homoeologous genomes in tetraploid pasta wheat presents substantial challenges for de novo transcriptome assembly. To solve this problem, we develop a specialized ...
  • Qi, L. L.; Wu, J. J.; Friebe, Bernd R.; Qian, C.; Gu, Y. Q.; Fu, D. L.; Gill, Bikram S. (2013)
    Brachypodium distachyon is a wild annual grass belonging to the Pooideae, more closely related to wheat, barley, and forage grasses than rice and maize. As an experimental model, the completed genome sequence of B. distachyon ...
  • Simms, D.D.; Kuhl, G.L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1993)
    In a commercial feedyard trial, 242 Holstein steer calves averaging 378 lb were used to compare effects of six alternative implant programs, consisting of sequential use of Synovex-S® or a combination of estradiol and ...
  • Elliott, N. C.; Brewer, M. J.; Giles, K. L.; Backoulou, G. F.; McCornack, Brian P.; Pendleton, B. B.; Royer, T. A. (2014)
    Panicle caterpillars comprise an economically important insect pest complex of sorghum throughout the Great Plains of the United States, particularly in Kansas, Oklahoma, and Texas. The sorghum panicle caterpillar complex ...
  • Chen, Hang; Zhu, Yu Cheng; Whitworth, R. Jeffery; Reese, John C.; Chen, Ming-Shun (2013)
    Proteases play important roles in a wide range of physiological processes in organisms. For plant-feeding insects, digestive proteases are targets for engineering protease inhibitors for pest control. In this study, we ...
  • Hollis, Larry C.; Smith, J.F.; Johnson, B.J; Kapil, S.; Mosier, Derek A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2005)
    One hundred and four, 5- to 10-month-old Holstein heifers and steers were blocked by age within gender and randomly assigned to treatments. Calves were vaccinated with 5- way modified-live respiratory viral ...
