  • Koch, B.A. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1963)
    The practice of raising pigs on an elevated slotted floor is receiving wide publicity. Slotted floors have been used in various parts of the world for many years, but they have only recently been used extensively in this ...
  • Wallace, J.O.; Reinhardt, Christopher D.; Thomson, Daniel U. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2009)
    The shipping and receiving period is one of the most stressful experiences during a calf’s lifetime. Stressors include weaning, commingling, transportation, processing, feed and water changes, and disease challenge placed ...
  • Traylor, S.L.; Hines, Robert H.; Amornthewaphat, N.; Johnson, S.L.; Sorrell, P.; Hancock, Joe D.; Behnke, Keith C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1998)
    Expander processing improved nutrient digestibility in diets with soybean meal and raw soybeans. Furthermore, with 600 psi cone pressure (20 k Wh/tonon ofspecific energy input), the diets with raw soybeans had equal or ...
  • Davis, Duane L.; Stevenson, Jeffrey S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1986)
    We compared the effects of outside vs inside and individual vs group penning on the interval to estrus after synchronization of estrus with altrenogest. Altrenogest (15 mg/day) was fed for 14 days and penning treatments ...
  • Margosian, Margaret L.; Garrett, Karen A.; Hutchinson, J. M. Shawn; With, Kimberly A. (2009)
    More than two-thirds of cropland in the United States is devoted to the production of just four crop species—maize, wheat, soybeans, and cotton— raising concerns that homogenization of the American agricultural landscape ...
  • Fellers, John P.; Soltani, Bahram M.; Bruce, Myron; Linning, Rob; Cuomo, Christina A.; Szabo, Les J.; Bakkeren, Guus (2013)
    Background: Wheat leaf rust (Puccinia triticina Eriks; Pt) and stem rust fungi (P. graminis f.sp. tritici; Pgt) are significant economic pathogens having similar host ranges and life cycles, but different alternate hosts. ...
  • Peterson, Jeffrey M.; Marsh, Thomas L.; Williams, Jeffery R. (2003)
  • Bala, Soumya; Schmidt, Karen A. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2013)
    Within cells, cysteine can be synthesized from methionine by the enzyme γ-cystathionase. Cysteine is then utilized to synthesize glutathione, which has many functions in cells that contribute to good health. Certain ...
  • Luchsinger, S.E.; Garcia Zepeda, C.M.; Chambers, Edgar, IV; Hollingsworth, M.E.; Hunt, Melvin C.; Marsden, James L.; Stroda, Sally L.; Rubio Canas, E.J.; Kastner, Curtis L.; Kuecker, W.G.; Mata, T.; Kropf, Donald H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1995)
    Acceptance of irradiated, chilled, boneless, pork chops and nonirradiated controls by consumers was not different. Coupled with consumer concerns about food safety and well-documented improvement in consumer attitudes about ...
  • Waldner, D.N.; Dikeman, Michael E.; Stroda, Sally L.; Campbell, R.E.; Kropf, Donald H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1990)
    Consumers evaluated hams from the four minimum protein-fat-free categories labeled 1) ham (H), 2) ham with natural juices (HNJ), 3) ham-water added (HWA) and 4) ham and water product (HWP) for juiciness, flavor, and overall ...
  • Pelton, C.D.; Allen, Dell M.; Corah, L.R.; Milliken, George A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1984)
    Our research showed that implanting bulls from birth to slaughter made steaks from bulls as acceptable as steers to consumer panels. Implanting bulls from weaning to slaughter resulted in the least desirable consumer panel ...
  • Schroeder, Ted C.; Tonsor, Glynn T.; Mintert, James; Pennings, Joost M.E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2006)
    Recent concerns about food safety have been the most disruptive and costly events the Canadian beef industry has ever experienced. At best, food safety scares reduce consumer confidence in beef products. At worst, ...
  • Tonsor, Glynn T.; Schroeder, Ted. C.; Lusk, Jayson L. (2013)
    Results from a split-sample survey of the U.S. population reveal consumers prefer meat products carrying origin information to unlabeled alternatives. Consumers are largely unaware of origin labeling laws and are indifferent ...
  • Feldkamp, T.; Lusk, J.; Schroeder, Ted C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2003)
    Determining needs and wants of consumers is important for the beef industry to reverse the downward trend in beef demand during the last two decades. This study used experimental auctions in conjunction with a survey ...
  • Schmidt, C.; Smith, J.F.; Harner, Joseph P.; Brouk, Michael J. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2006)
    Consumptive water usage by evaporative pads was measured during 7 days of a 3-week period at a Kansas (KS) dairy and a 2-day pe-riod at a North Dakota (ND) dairy. Water me-ters were installed between the water hydrants, ...
  • Bowles, J.E.; Hunt, Melvin C.; Kendall, J.L.A.; Lyon, M.; Kastner, Curtis L.; Dikeman, Michael E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1981)
    Short bursts of electricity (intermittent electrical stimulation) to beef carcasses accelerated pH decline and the onset of rigor mortis more than continuous stimulation did.
  • Vanzant, E.S.; Cochran, R.C.; Stafford, S.; St Jean, G.; Olson, K. C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1994)
    Ruminal degradation of organic matter and protein in alfalfa and prairie hay were evaluated in vivo, using cannulated cows, and in vitro, using a continuous-culture fermenter to simulate ruminal fermentation. Estimates of ...
  • Karr, K.J.; Kastner, Curtis L.; Marsden, James L.; Phebus, Randall K. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1998)
    Lebanon bologna raw batter was mixed with a five-strain mixture of Escherichia coli O157:H7 to achieve average inoculum levels of 7.79, 7.77, and 7.92 log CFU/g as deter mined on MSA, 202, and PRSA media, respectively. ...
  • Parks, J.C.; Lusby, K.S.; Brent, B.E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1971)
    Since the requirement of animals for net energy for maintenance (NEm) is influenced largely by weight of the animal, feed efficiency and animal performance improve rapidly as feed intake surpasses maintenance requirements. ...
