  • Rigdon, Anne R.; Jumpponen, Ari M.; Vadlani, Praveen V.; Maier, Dirk E. (2013)
    With increased mandates for biofuel production in the US, ethanol production from lignocellulosic substrates is burgeoning, highlighting the need for thorough examination of the biofuel production supply chain. This research ...
  • Brijwani, Monika; Subramanyam, Bhadriraju; Flinn, Paul W. (2012)
    The influence of sanitation on responses of life stages of the red flour beetle, Tribolium castaneum (Herbst) (Coleoptera: Tenebrionidae), an economically important pest in flour mills, was investigated in a pilot flour ...
  • Van den Hurk, Andrew F.; Hall-Mendelin, Sonja; Pyke, Alyssa T.; Frentiu, Francesca D.; McElroy, Kate; Day, Andrew; Higgs, Stephen; O’Neill, Scott L. (2012)
    Incidence of disease due to dengue (DENV), chikungunya (CHIKV) and yellow fever (YFV) viruses is increasing in many parts of the world. The viruses are primarily transmitted by Aedes aegypti, a highly domesticated mosquito ...

  • Dhuyvetter, Kevin C.; Schroeder, Ted C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2000)
    Several important determinants need to be considered when analyzing price slides (priceweight relationships) for feeder cattle. The two most economically important determinants of price-weight slides are expected ...
  • Marsh, T.L.; Piggott, N.E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2002)
    This study investigates whether food safety incidents involving beef, pork, and poultry, and the accompanying publicity have impacted United States meat demand. Beef demand is modeled as a function of beef prices, ...
  • Farmer, C.G.; Cochran, R.C.; Simms, D.D.; Heldt, J.S.; Mathis, C.P. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1999)
    Sixteen ruminally fistulated steers were used to evaluate the effects of feeding supplements containing combinations of two wheat-milling by-products on forage intake, digestibility, and ruminal characteristics. The ...
  • Laudert, S.; Kuhl, G.; Walker, M. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1984)
    A one hundred and forty day field trial was conducted to evaluate the relative performance of steers implanted with Compudose, Ralgro and Synovex-S. Daily gains of cattle receiving a single initial implant were increased ...
  • Laudert, S.; Corah, L.; Nelson, R.; Sauerwein, C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1985)
    Three field trials were conducted with grazing yearling steers to compare Compudose® and Ralgro® implants. Compudose® and Ralgro® implants. Compudose®-implanted steers gained faster (P<.05) than controls. Ralgro® improved ...
  • Eck, T.P.; Corah, L.R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1993)
    Feedlot performance of steers implanted with Compudose®, Implus-S®, or Synovex-S® was very similar. No statistical differences were detected among treatments. However, implanted steers gained an average of 4% faster ...
