  • Bolsen, K.; Ilg, H.; Nuwanyakpa, M. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1981)
    Enzyme (Ensila Plus) and alkali (NaOH) silage additives were evaluated with whole-plant wheat silages which were fed with or without alfalfa haylage (45% moisture). Steers fed NaOH silage consumed the most feed but were ...
  • Bolsen, K.; Ilg, H.; Nuwanyakpa, M.; Hoover, J. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1982)
    Wheat silage, with and without sodium hydroxide (NaOH), was fed, with or without alfalfa haylage, in an 80-day growing trial. Calves fed NaOH-silage consumed 18% more feed and gained 16% faster than those fed control ...
  • Corah, L.; Dargatz, D.; Peters, C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1996)
    A National Forage Survey was conducted in 18 states to determine the trace mineral and related nutrient content of forages grown in the United States. Most forages sampled were harvested hays utilized as winter feed ...
  • Milton, C.T.; Brandt, Robert T., Jr.; Kuhl, G.L.; Titgemeyer, Evan C.; Drouillard, James S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1996)
    Three hundred eighty-four crossbred, yearling steers (810 lb) were used to evaluate soybean meal (SBM), sunflower meal (SFM), and combinations of the two as protein supplements and supplemental protein effects in diets ...
  • Pruitt, R.J.; Corah, L.R.; Simms, D.D.; Spire, M.F. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1982)
    In six trials involving 486 heifers and 23 bulls, we studied factors affecting pregnancy rates of estrus-synchronized heifers mated naturally and evaluated indicators of bull fertility. Heavier heifers and those in fleshier ...
  • Fox, J.T.; Spire, M.F. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2004)
    Bovine respiratory disease continues to be the leading cause of illness and death loss from weaning through finishing. There is no objective method to evaluate a live animal’s severity of sickness or their response to ...
  • Dubois, P.C.; Garcia, G.; Bolsen, K.K.; Harbers, L.H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1989)
    Calibrations for near-infrared reflectance spectroscopy (NIRS) analysis of sorghum silage and sheep feces samples were developed. with mixed success. For sorghum silage, the standard errors of calibration (SEC) and ...
  • Mohan, A.; Houser, Terry A.; Barstow, T.E.; Hunt, Melvin C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2009)
    Meat color as perceived by consumers serves as a valuable guide for assessing overall quality and wholesomeness of meat. The bright cherry-red color of beef is influenced by tissue oxygen consumption, obstacles to oxygen ...
  • Sutterfield, A.; Crow, B.A.; Grobbel, J.P.; Phebus, Randall K.; Dikeman, Michael E.; Hollis, Larry C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2009)
    Blade tenderization has been used for decades to increase tenderness in beef cuts that are highly variable in tenderness or predicted to be “tough.” Injection enhancement also is commonly used in industry to increase ...
  • Crow, B.A.; Dikeman, Michael E.; Ray, A.N.; Houser, Terry A.; Grobbel, J.P.; Hollis, Larry C.; Phebus, Randall K. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010)
    Meat tenderness is the most important palatability attribute affecting consumers’ overall eating experience. Injection enhancement and blade tenderization have long been used to improve this important trait. Injection ...
  • Groesbeck, C.N.; Burkey, T.E.; Minton, J. Ernest; Tokach, Michael D.; DeRouchey, Joel M.; Goodband, Robert D.; Nelssen, Jim L.; Dritz, Steven S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2007)
    The neonatal Fc receptor (FcRn) participates in intracellular trafficking of IgG and the maintenance of circulating IgG. The relationship between the FcRn and IgG may also augment host defense immunosurveillance. The current ...
  • Pruiett, S.D.; Morrill, J.L.; Blecha, Frank; Higgins, James J.; Anderson, N.V.; Reddy, P.G. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1989)
    Calves were bottle-fed milk replacers at 10% of weekly adjusted body weight for 8 wk. Treatments were 1) no supplements (control), 2) .16 oz vitamin C, or 3) .16 oz vitamin C plus 125 IU/lb vitamin E. Lymphocytes and ...
  • Madden, L. V.; Hughes, G.; Pfender, W. F.; Garrett, Karen A. (2004)
    The series of papers introduced by this one address a range of statistical applications in plant pathology, including survival analysis, nonparametric analysis of disease associations, multivariate analyses, neural networks, ...
  • Brent, B.E.; Lusby, K.S.; Kobuszewski, J.A.; Parks, J.C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1972)
    Polioencephalomalacia (PEM) is a disorder of the ruminant central nervous system characterized by sudden onset and rapid death. At autopsy, the brain may be swollen and cerebral cortex degenerated. Early symptoms may include ...
  • Levis, D.G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1989)
    Many existing swine breeding facilities have been designed to control the environment, provide continuous boar-sow contact for stimulating recently weaned sows to cycle, reduce the distance a weaned sow or boar has to be ...
  • Brethour, J.; Lee, B.; Riley, Jack G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1985)
    At least for the varieties we studied, hard red winter wheat was superior to soft red winter wheat in beef cattle rations. That contradicts the perception that feed wheats should be soft. The net energy values of Larned ...
