    We determined the effects of supplemental L-carnitine on the insulin-like growth factor (IGF) system in porcine embryonic myoblasts (PEM) from gilts. Forty gilts (BW = 303.6 lb) were allotted to 1 of 4 treatments that ...
  • Smith, Jeffrey S.; Engel, Matthew R.; Hurt, Douglas A.; Roth, Jeffery E.; Stevens, James M. (2001)
    Throughout rural New Mexico and south-central Colorado, acequias (irrigation ditches) are the lifeblood of Hispano communities. Without the water delivered by acequias, residents would face the all but impossible task of ...
  • Li, Yifen; Syed, Lateef; Liu, Jianwei; Hua, Duy H.; Li, Jun (2012)
    We demonstrate the feasibility of a label-free electrochemical method to detect the kinetics of phosphorylation and dephosphorylation of surface-attached peptides catalyzed by kinase and phosphatase, respectively. The ...
  • Sherrin, A. Rachelle; Bednar, Carolyn; Kwon, Junehee (2009)
    Purpose of this research was to investigate utilization of labor productivity standards and variables that affect productivity in Texas school foodservice operations. A questionnaire was developed, validated, and pilot ...
  • Harner, Joseph P.; Strahm, T.; Key, David V.; Strahm, T. L. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1999)
    Time requirements for loading a manure spreader and traveling to and from the field varied from 20 to 30 min per load. However, standardizing the data showed that 5 to 7 min were required per 1,000 gal (9,000 lb). ...
  • Chang, Yang-Ming; Huang, Biing-Wen; Chen, Yun-Ju (2012)
    Considering family labor and hired labor as heterogeneous inputs, we present a theoretical framework in which the optimal decisions of a farm household on on-farm family and hired labor, off-farm labor supply, and leisure ...
  • Campos, Manuel; Phillips, Thomas W. (2013)
    Pheromone-based population suppression methods for stored-product insects can reduce or eliminate application of chemical insecticides near finished food products. The responses of adult male Indianmeal moth males (IMM), ...
  • Aguilar, Orlando A.; Maghirang, Ronaldo G.; Trabue, Steven L.; Rice, Charles W.; Erickson, Larry E. (2013)
    Pen surface amendments for mitigating emissions of greenhouse gases (GHGs), such as nitrous oxide (N2O), methane (CH4), and carbon dioxide (CO2), from beef cattle feedlots, were evaluated under controlled laboratory ...
  • Almuhanna, E. A.; Maghirang, Ronaldo G.; Murphy, James P.; Erickson, Larry E. (American society of agricultural and biological engineers, 2009)
    A prototype electrostatically assisted particulate wet scrubber (EPWS) for controlling dust in livestock buildings was developed and tested under laboratory and field conditions. Under laboratory conditions, the EPWS with ...
  • Coblentz, W.K.; Fritz, J.O.; Bolsen, K.K. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1993)
    A simple system is described that uses a hinged metal baling unit and a hydraulic press to make 4.0 × 4.3 × 5.3 inch wire-tied, laboratory- scale, hay bales. A comparison of densities of conventional, small, alfalfa ...
  • Steve, Rops; Marty, Heintz; Tokach, Michael D.; Goodband, Robert D.; Nelssen, Jim L.; Dritz, Steven S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1999)
    A total of 1,200 pigs were used to determine whether dietary lysine level fed in the growing phase influenced the response to lysine level fed in the finishing phase. Pigs were fed either an adequate or low lysine level ...
  • Song, Weixing; Yao, Weixin (2011)
    The problem of fitting a parametric model in Tobit errors-in-variables regression models is discussed in this paper. The proposed test is based on the supremum of the Khamaladze type transformation of a certain partial ...
  • Kang, D.H.; Crozier-Dodson, B.A.; Jiang, G.; Shi, X.; Fung, Daniel Y. C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1999)
    Combined lactic acid (2%), hot water, and microwave treatments were used to reduce natural microflora and the pathogens Escherichia coli O157:H7, Salmonella typhimurium, and Listeria monocytogenes in vacuum-packaged ...
  • Carney, E.E.; Groesbeck, C.N.; Goodband, Robert D.; Tokach, Michael D.; Nelssen, Jim L.; Dritz, Steven S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2005)
    Two experiments were conducted to determine the effects of lactose products and specialty protein sources on feed flow ability as measured by angle of repose. Angle of repose is the maximum angle in which a pile of ingredient ...
