    Objectives: To compare the effects of porcine circovirus type 2 (PCV2) vaccination on growth rate, backfat depth, and loin depth of pigs in a high-health herd which contained different genetic lines. Materials and methods: ...
  • Andries, K.M.; Schalles, R.R.; Franke, D.E.; Dikeman, Michael E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1996)
    Growth and carcass data from 5 years of a long-term, rotational, crossbreeding project were used to calculate heritabilities and genetic and phenotypic correlations for direct and maternal birth and weaning weight, ...
  • Christmas, R.A.; Spire, M.F.; Sargeant, J.M.; Tucker, Sharon K.; Moser, Daniel W. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2001)
    Breeding soundness examination data on over 1,200 yearling Angus bulls were analyzed to determine heritability of and genetic relationships among breeding soundness traits. Breeding soundness exam procedures were ...
  • Bates, Kerri E.; Weaber, Robert L.; Bormann, Jennifer M.; Moser, Daniel W.; Salak-Johnson, J. L.; Chase, C. C. L.; Peel, R. K.; Van Campen, H.; Loneragan, G. H.; Wagner, J. J.; Bodhireddy, P.; Prayaga, K.; Enns, R. M. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2014)
    Cattle producers historically have selected for docile temperaments simply for management convenience because calmer animals are conducive to safe environments for their peers as well as their handlers. As many producers ...
  • Eborn, D.R.; Moser, Daniel W. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2003)
    Field data from the North American Limousin Federation was used to determine the heritability and genetic correlations of body condition score (BCS) with carcass traits. Carcass traits included carcass weight, ribeye ...
  • Call, Edward P. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1985)
    An analysis of 41,426 cows in 635 Kansas Holstein herds indicated that considerable improvement can be made in genetic gain by more stringent sire selection and greater use of proved bulls. The generation interval in ...
  • Nichols, David A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1989)
    In recent years, the pork industry has faced numerous challenges. As consumer resistance to fatter meats has increased, the industry has had two options, 1) argue against popular opinion that fat consumption posed a health ...
  • Kreikemeier, K.K.; Harmon, D.L.; Avery, T.B.; Brandt, Robert T., Jr. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1988)
    Glucose infused into the abomasum of Holstein steers resulted in higher arterial glucose concentrations and increased net glucose absorption than either starch or dextrin infusions. Increasing infusion rates above 20 ...

  • Eborn, D.R.; Grieger, David M. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2007)
    The use of artificial insemination can improve genetics, shorten the calving season, and increase weaning weights by having more calves born earlier in the breeding season. Reasons that this technology has not been used ...
