  • Lee, B.; Laudert, S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1984)
    Synovex-S and STEER-oid were compared in a 133-day finishing trial to evaluate their effects on growth and carcass traits of yearling steers. No significant differences in average daily gain, feed intake, feed to gain ...
  • De Felicio, P.E.; Allen, Dell M.; Kastner, Curtis L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1981)
    Removing kidney fat at slaughter did not affect (P>.05) the chilled or chilled-and-aged weights of the tenderloin. But small differences in tenderness and color at the beginning of the display period favored the conventional ...
  • Boyles, S.; Riley, Jack G.; Pope, Ronald V. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1984)
    Straightbred Angus steers gained .21 lb/day faster than Brahman x Angus steers during a 184-day winter feeding trial. Angus steers had a higher yield grade. more fat thickness at 12th rib, and graded 90% Choice. Brahman ...
  • Menzies, C.S.; Banbury, Evans E.; Spaeth, C.W. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1967)
    A flock of approximately 450 commercial finewool ewes is maintained at the Colby Branch Experiment Station. Ewes are purchased in early spring in Southwest Texas as yearlings and replaced after producing six lamp crops. ...
  • Wu, J.J.; Hunt, Melvin C.; Kropf, Donald H.; Allen, Dell M.; Kastner, Curtis L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1981)
    We compared taste panel and connective tissue characteristics of beef fed a high energy diet with beef fed grass. The high energy diet produced higher USDA quality and yield grades, more rapid weight gain, and increased ...
  • Kropf, Donald H.; Mackintosh, D.L.; Menzies, C.S.; Harrison, D.; Anderson, L. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1966)
    This study was to determine quality factors most closely related to carcass grade, marbling in the rib eye muscle, and to tenderness. A total of 376 crossbred lambs were slaughtered over 4 years at an approximate live ...
  • Lawrence, T.E.; King, D.A.; Montgomery, T.H.; Dikeman, Michael E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2001)
    We evaluated beef carcass data (12th rib fat thickness, hot carcass weight, ribeye area, percentage of kidney-pelvic-heart fat, USDA yield grade, and USDA quality grade) from 60,625 A-maturity steer and heifer ...
  • Lawrence, S.J.; Kreider, S.E.; Higgins, James J.; Allen, L.; Epp, M.P.; Ritter, P.; Blasi, Dale A.; Dikeman, Michael E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2013)
    The majority of cattle fed in commercial feedlots are processed and placed into pens without sorting into groups of uniform size and body condition. As a result of the variability in weight and condition, this management ...
