  • Blasi, Dale A.; Epp, M.; White, Bradley J. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2009)
    Cattle are commonly moved between geographic regions by using commercial transport carriers, and the vast majority of cattle are transported at least one time during their lives. Both handling and travel associated with ...
  • Zimmerman, S.; Jeon, I.J.; McVay, L.; Ferdinand, E.; Sukup, D.; Shirley, John E.; Schmidt, Karen A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2001)
    Raw milk is an excellent medium for bacterial growth. The objective of this study was to evaluate the number of microbes and component degradation in raw milk. Milk fat content did not affect bacteria counts. As storage ...
  • Beharka, A.B.; Carroll, L.H.; Raun, A.P.; Laudert, S.B.; Parrott, J.C.; Nagaraja, T. G.; Chengappa, M. M. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1996)
    Fusobacterium necrophorum was the predominant bacterial isolate from liver abscesses of feedlot cattle fed with or without tylosin. The major difference in the bacterial flora of liver abscesses between cattle groups was ...
  • Lechtenberg, K.F.; Leipold, H.W.; Nagaraja, T. G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1986)
    Fusobacterium necrophorum was the predominant bacterial isolate from 49 liver abscesses. Biotype A tended to occur in pure infections and produced a more severe tissue reaction than biotype B, which tended to occur as a ...
  • Dendy, S. P.; Power, A. G.; Blaisdell, G. K.; Alexander, H. M.; McCarron, J. K.; Garrett, Karen A. (2004)
  • Kropf, Donald H.; Kasten, L.H.; Koch, B.A.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1968)
    Many studies have reported that barrows gain more rapidly than gilts, but gilts excell in carcass muscling and trimness. Recently, considerable interest has been directed toward determining ration protein needs of barrows ...
  • Rezac, D.J.; Thomson, Daniel U.; Reinhardt, Christopher D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2012)
    Weather-related stressors are a well-recognized opponent to animal welfare and can have important ramifications for animal performance. Sound animal husbandry practices historically have attempted to diminish the effects ...
  • Harrison, K.F.; Good, D.L.; Riley, Jack G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1974)
    A 189-day trial used 280 mixed-breed steers to study effects of various protein levels in finishing steer rations. Rations containing 15.4 or 13.4% crude protein significantly improved rate of gain during the first 42 ...
  • Riley, Jack G.; Harrison, K.F.; Good, D.L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1973)
    A 112-day trial used 280 mixed-breed yearling steers to study effects of varying protein levels in finishing steers rations. Crude protein content ranged from 15.1 percent for the first 28 days to 8.9 percent crude protein ...
  • Murphy, James P.; Harner, Joseph P. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1998)
    Most compacted soils can be used for lagoon liners to achieve seepage guidelines established by the Kansas Department of Health and Environment.
  • Schalles, R.R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1986)
    For cattle producers to stay in business, they must apply the business management techniques used by sophisticated non-agricultural enterprises. Among these techniques is systems analysis, in which formulas representin ...
  • Powell, T.H.; Laudert, S.D.; Lee, R.W.; Seibert, G.; Unruh, John A.; Dikeman, Michael E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1992)
    Kansas State University, in cooperation with the Beef Empire Days committee, developed a new beef carcass index system for 1991, incorporating yield and quality traits as indicators of carcass merit. Development of the ...
  • Cunningham, F.; Hunt, Melvin C.; Kastner, Curtis L.; Kropf, Donald H.; Larson, B.; Schafer, D.; Simms, D.; Smith, S.; Vanier, M.; Fung, Daniel Y. C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1991)
    Beef and beef products are significant parts of a balanced diet in the U.S. and major parts of the Kansas economy. Therefore, these products must be carefully processed, handled, and monitored for microbial quality to ...
  • Sproul, N.A.; Bolte, J.W.; Linden, D.R.; Kreikemeier, R.A.; Pacheco, L.A.; Thomas, M.D.; Higgins, James J.; Olson, K. C.; Drouillard, James S.; Jaeger, John R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2008)
    Poor grazing distribution is a major problem on rangelands of the western United States. Grazing animals tend to congregate in areas near water, shade, and level terrain. These areas typically become overgrazed, while less ...
  • NAIS Benefit-Cost Research Team (2009)
    The purpose of this study was to conduct a benefit‐cost analysis of the United States National Animal Identification System (NAIS). The NAIS is a voluntary federal animal identification system operated by the Animal and ...
  • Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1986)
    One of the important, recurring decisions that each hog producer must make is the weight at which to sell hogs. The decision to sell hogs may be influenced by cost and availability of feed, anticipated market hog price ...
