  • 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 ...

    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 ...
  • Melton, N. T.; Oleen, Brandon E.; Vahl, Christopher I.; Montgomery, Sean P.; Schlegel, Ethan R.; Blasi, Dale A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2014)
    Optimizing cattle performance and maintaining pasture health are important considerations when striving to maximize profitability and sustainability on a Flint Hills pasture yearling grazing operation. The two growing ...
  • 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. ...
  • Singh, M.; Thippareddi, H.; Phebus, Randall K.; Marsden, James L.; Kastner, Curtis L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2003)
    Cetyl Pyridinium Chloride (CPC) spray using variable application temperatures, pressures, and times was evaluated for its effectiveness in reducing Listeria monocytogenes inoculated on the surfaces of commercial frankfurters ...
  • Stevenson, Jeffrey S.; Lucy, M.C.; Call, Edward P. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1985)
    Prolonged or delayed interval to first breeding is a major cause of long calving intervals. Our objective was to test two methods of artificial insemination by appointment after controlling the onset of estrus for all ...
  • Myers, S.M.; Dikeman, Michael E.; Riley, Jack G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1979)
    Analysis of traditional and later-maturing cattle types fed under accelerated (placed directly on the finishing ration) and conventional (back grounded on a growing ration before finishing) system, indicated large differences ...
  • Cox, I.M; Adapa, S.; Schmidt, Karen A. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service., 1998)
    Raw milk was obtained from the K-State Dairy Teaching and Research Center and evaluated for quality after being stored under various conditions. Results showed that as storage temperature increased from 35 to 45EF for ...

    Existing crop monitoring programs determine the incidence and distribution of plant diseases and pathogens and assess the damage caused within a crop production region. These programs have traditionally used observed or ...
  • Smith, J.F.; Harner, Joseph P. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1996)
    Heat stress occurs when a dairy cow’s heat load is greater than her capacity to lose heat. The effects of heat stress include: increased respiration rate, increased water intake, increased sweating, decreased dry matter ...
  • Koch, B.A.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1970)
