    Carcass and Warner-Bratzler shear force data on strip loin steaks have been obtained on over 4,200 cattle from contemporary progeny groups from the most widely used sires in 15 beef cattle breed associations (16 breeds). ...
  • Pollak, E.J.; Lipsey, R.J.; Westcott, E.A.; Dikeman, Michael E.; Stroda, Sally L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-08-06)
    Warner-Bratzler shear force data on strip loin steaks were obtained on 761 steers from contemporary groups of progeny from the most popular 38 Simmental sires, and 133 steers from nine Simbrah sires. The range for ...
  • Tuma, H.J.; Kropf, Donald H.; Kolstad, S.P.; Mackintosh, D.L. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-04-28)
    Information on animal growth and development, although complex and not fully understood, is necessary to determine the stage at which a beef animal will produce the most desirable carcass. True growth involves an increase ...
