    Salmonella dublin is a bacterium that can have devastating effects in dairy herds. It is most deadly with calves that range in age from 10 days to 5 months. Salmonella dublin is shed from carrier animals through feces, ...
  • Wendelburg, J.W.; Lambert, D.L.; Thippareddi, H.; Kastner, Curtis L.; Phebus, Randall K.; Marsden, James L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2002)
    Prime rib is generally prepared by cooking to low temperatures for long times to attain the desired tenderness and juiciness. Destruction of Salmonella spp. in blade tenderized prime rib was examined by following ...
  • Koch, B.A.; Allee, G.L.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1975)
    Two feeding trials involving 118 finishing Pigs were conducted to determine minimum salt needed in finishing diets. Performance of pigs fed 0.2 to 0.5% salt diets did not differ significantly, but pigs fed 0.1% or no ...
  • Hix, E.L.; Bell, T.D.; Parrish, D.B.; Good, A.L. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1952)
    The consumption of salt by herbivorous animals in general, and their apparent relish for salt, have been recognized for many years, but its importance may be questioned by many because of lack of knowledge of both the ...
  • Park, A.F.; Smith, J.F.; Rozell, Timothy G.; Stevenson, Jeffrey S.; Shirley, John E.; Scheffel, Michael V. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service., 1998)
    Representative MUN values can be obtained by testing a milk sample before milking, at AM or PM milking, or with an in-line siphon sampling device. MUN values obtained from homogenous milking strings are as accurate ...
  • Schemm, T.J.; DeBey, B.M.; Nagaraja, T. G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1999)
    Sarcina-like bacteria, possibly Sarcina ventriculi, have been seen upon histopathologic examination of the abomasums of calves that died of abomasal bloat. The ability of the organism to grow at a low pH and produce large ...
  • Davis, Duane L.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1977)
    Scrotal measurements and visual scores of testicle size were determined for 59 boars used in nutrition and physiology studies. The best predictors of testicular weight were visual scores (average of 3 observers) and ...
  • Wang, Su; Michaud, J. P.; Zhang, Runzhi; Liu, Shuang; Zhang, Fan (2009)
    1. We observed native populations of Harmonia axyridis (Pallas) around Beijing, China, over 2 years and performed choice and no-choice mating tests between melanic and succinic (non-melanic) beetles in the laboratory. 2. ...
  • Harmoney, Keith R.; Johnson, Sandra K.; Cochran, R.; Vanzant, E.; Wilson, J.; Yauk, D.; Holder, Michael S.; Allen, B.; Bell, W.; Jansonius, H.; Jones, Timothy J.; Ploger, Mark D.; McClure, Gregory W. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2002)
    The K-State Research and Extension Forage Task Force surveyed Kansas rangelands during the course of seasonal changes to enable producers and managers to better estimate the feed value of their pasture forage during ...
  • Langemeier, Michael R.; Mintert, J.; Schroeder, Ted C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1991)
    This study examined the impact of date of feedlot placement on feed conversion, daily gain, and death loss. Results indicated that heifers placed on feed from September to December required more feed per pound of gain, ...
  • Mintert, J.; Langemeier, Michael R.; Schroeder, Ted C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1991)
    Analysis of 10 years of closeouts from a western Kansas feedlot demonstrated that steer performance exhibits significant seasonal variation. Steers weighing 700 to 800 lb when placed on feed in September through ...
  • Cochran, R.C.; Vanzant, E.S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1991)
    Concentration of fiber in the forage selected by beef steers grazing bluestem range during a drought year (1989) was highest in the winter but declined substantially in the spring and remained fairly constant throughout ...
  • Schalles, R.R.; Blum, J.K.; Smith, W.H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1977)
    Selecting animals for decreased feed per unit of gain has made small changes in feed conversion over a four-year period. Adjusting for maintenance requirements by using mid weight to 0.75 power was not entirely satisfactory ...
  • Wheat, J.D.; Kropf, Donald H.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1975)
    Litters farrowed total 147 (25 in 1971, 23 in 1972, 33 in 1973, 32 in 1974 and 34 in 1975); pigs total 1196, 1102 alive at birth 94 (8%) dead at birth. Line differences in loin eye area, backfat thickness and age (adjusted ...
  • White, J.; Bolsen, K.; Kirch, B.; Pfaff, L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1988)
    Eighty forage sorghum cultivars were compared in 1986 for agronomic and silage quality traits. Silage yield ranged from 5.3 to 10.0 tons (t) of dry matter (DM) per acre (mean, 7.4 t); grain yield, from 13 to 113 bushels ...
