    The transfer across the swine uterus and placenta of [1-14C] octanoic acid, [9,10(n)- H] palmitic acid, and [1- 14C] linoleic acid was studied in five gilts and their fetuses during late gestation, following a single bolus ...
  • Li, D.F.; Reddy, G.; Blecha, Frank; Hancock, Joe D.; Allee, G.; Nelssen, Jim L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1988)
    An experiment was conducted to determine if baby pigs develop intestinal hypersensitivity to dietary soy protein. Challenging nursery pigs with soybean meal following oral infusion of soybean meal from day 7 to day 14 of ...
  • Shirley, John E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2003)
    Dairy cows are generally provided with a 60-day dry period. The first part of the dry period is called the “far-off dry period” beginning at dry off and continuing until 21 days before projected calving date. The second ...
  • Khang, Chang Hyun; Berruyer, Romain; Giraldo, Martha C.; Kankanala, Prasanna; Park, Sook-Young; Czymmek, Kirk; Kang, Seogchan; Valent, Barbara (2010)
    Knowledge remains limited about how fungal pathogens that colonize living plant cells translocate effector proteins inside host cells to regulate cellular processes and neutralize defense responses. To cause the globally ...
  • Hajmeer, M.N.; Ceylan, E.; Marsden, James L.; Phebus, Randall K. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2000)
    The effect of blade tenderization on translocation of natural microflora from the surface to the interior of longissimus dorsi steaks aged for 7, 14, and 21 days was evaluated. Samples from the exterior and interior ...
  • Parcell, J.L.; Dhuyvetter, Kevin C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1997)
    Trends in the size of swine operations in Kansas and the V. S. are toward fewer and larger operations. The number of operations in Kansas and the U.S. continues to decline; however, the number of hogs marketed has ...
  • Dhuyvetter, Kevin C.; Parcell, J.L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1997)
    Productivity has been trending up in the swine industry over the last 15 years. Much of the increased productivity is due to increased pigs/litter and increased market weights. The efficiency of the breeding herd (lit ...
  • Bolsen, K. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1982)
    Numerous commercial silage additives, manufacturers of which make various claims for their improving silage quality, are available to Kansas farmers and ranchers. In 2 previous years (1980 and 1981), we reported on ...
  • Buckman, Karrie A.; Campbell, James F.; Subramanyam, Bhadriraju (2013)
    The red flour beetle, Tribolium castaneum (Herbst) (Coleoptera: Tenebrionidae), is the most important stored-product insect pest infesting rice (Oryza sativa L.) mills in the United States. Due to the phasing out of methyl ...
  • Koch, B.A.; Smith, E.F.; Richardson, D.; McCarter, M.M. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1960)
    The steers used in this study were good to choice grade Herefords, averaging 980 pounds, that originated in New Mexico. They had been wintered in central Kansas at a rather high level of feeding. The steers were randomly ...
  • Koch, B.A.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1970)
    Growing pigs fed ASP-250 from birth to market gained equally as well as those fed TNT. Feed conversion values were quite similar. Adding a fermentation product or vitamin E to rations did not produce consistently better ...
  • Giraldo, Martha C.; Dagdas, Yasin F.; Gupta, Yogesh K.; Mentlak, Thomas A.; Yi, Mihwa; Martinez-Rocha, Ana Lilia; Saitoh, Hiromasa; Terauchi, Ryohei; Talbot, Nicholas J.; Valent, Barbara (2013)
    To cause plant diseases, pathogenic micro-organisms secrete effector proteins into host tissue to suppress immunity and support pathogen growth. Bacterial pathogens have evolved several distinct secretion systems to target ...
  • Odde, Kenneth G.; Kiracofe, G.H.; Ward, H.S.; Brethour, J. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1980)
    Seventy-five cows were used to compare the fertilizing abilities of sperm packaged in 0.5-ml straws and thawed in warm water to similarly packaged sperm thawed in the inseminating gun. A system of competitive mating provided ...
  • McCollough, R.L.; Schalles, R.R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1972)
    This station has grown and fed the same four (yellow endosperm) hybrid sorghum grains (Funk G-766W, Acco R-l09, DeKalb E-57, and Northrup King 222) in an all-concentrate ration to steers two consecutive years. Results ...
  • Tonsor, Glynn T.; Mintert, James; Schroeder, Ted C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2009)

  • Garmyn, A.; Moser, Daniel W. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2007)
    Feedlot managers often market entire pens as mixed groups, resulting in lower-quality, over-finished, or heavyweight carcasses. As the cattle industry has moved towards valuebased marketing systems, finding a costeffective ...
