  • Grobbel, J.P.; Dikeman, Michael E.; Milliken, George A.; Hunt, Melvin C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2008)
    Several meat quality traits affect consumers’ overall purchase decisions and satisfaction with meat products, but color is the major factor affecting purchasing decisions. According to some researchers, tenderness is the ...
  • Grobbel, J.P.; Dikeman, Michael E.; Milliken, George A.; Hunt, Melvin C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2008)
    Case-ready meat provides many benefits, including quality and safety. Meat packaged in high-oxygen (HiO2) modified atmosphere packaging (MAP) has a desirable bright red display color but may have increased off- flavors ...

  • McCollough, R.L.; Brent, B.E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1972)
    Apparent coefficient of digestion (COD) was determined for eight hybrid sorghum grains and three hybrid corns named in Part I.
  • Kim, I.H.; Cabrera, M.R.; Hines, Robert H.; Rantanen, M.M.; Hancock, Joe D.; Behnke, Keith C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1995)
    Nursery pigs fed complex diets had greater ADG than those fed simple diets, and as particle size was reduced, ADG and F/G tended to improve. There was a trend for reducing particle size to increase ADG more for pigs fed ...
  • Baudon, E.C.; Hancock, Joe D.; Tokach, Michael D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2003)
    A total of 107 mixed-parity sows (parities one to four) was used to determine the effects of particle size of corn in lactation diets on sow and litter performance. The sows were fed corn-soybean meal-based diets with ...
  • Groesbeck, C.N.; Lawrence, K.R.; Hastad, C.W.; Goodband, Robert D.; Tokach, Michael D.; Nelssen, Jim L.; Dritz, Steven S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2003)
    We conducted three experiments to determine effect of particle size, mill type, and added fat on flow characteristics of ground corn. In Experiment 1, corn was ground with either a hammer mill or a roller mill to produce ...
  • Freeman, A.S.; Coffey, K.P. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1993)
    One hundred twenty-six crossbred steers and sixty-three crossbred heifers (704 lb BW) were used to evaluate the effects of energy supplementation on animal performance during grazing of endophyte-infected tall fescue ...
  • Hickman, P.S.; Brandt, Robert T., Jr.; Henricks, D.M.; Minton, J. Ernest; Stevenson, Jeffrey S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1994)
    Forty, individually fed, yearling steers (750 lbs) were used to measure payout characteristics of different trenbolone acetate-containing implants and to correlate those characteristics to growth response. Treatments ...
  • Stark, C.R.; Hines, Robert H.; Behnke, Keith C.; Hancock, Joe D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1993)
    Two experiments were conducted to determine the effects of diet form (meal vs pellet) and amount of fines in pelleted feed on growth performance of nursery and finishing pigs. One hundred twenty-six weanling pigs, with an ...
  • Baudon, E.C.; Hancock, Joe D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2003)
    A total of 76 sows (parities one to four) were used to determine the effects of pelleted diets on sow and litter performance. In the 21-d lactation experiment, the sows were given a corn-soybean meal-based diet in meal ...
  • Menzies, C.S.; Cox, R.F.; Deyoe, C.W.; Pfost, H.B. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1964)
    This test is a follow-up of the study reported on page 5 concerning the effects of form and heat treatment of rations on lamb feedlot performance.
  • Skoch, E.R.; Binder, S.F.; Deyoe, C.W.; Allee, G.L.; Behnke, Keith C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1978)
    One hundred forty-six pigs were used to study the effects of steam pelleting a corn-soybean meal diet on pig performance. Treatments included ground meal, meal steam conditioned to 80 C (176 ̊F) before pelleting, meal ...
  • Schalles, R.R.; Fleck, A.T.; Corah, L.R.; Kiracofe, G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1979)
    Pelvic area had little influence on the number or severity of calving problems after size and condition of two-year-old first-calf heifers, sex and weight of their calf, and genetic background of the heifer and her ...
  • Kessen, T.J.; Sulpizio, M.J.; Spire, M.F.; Ethington, R.T.; Drouillard, James S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2002)

  • Riley, Jack G.; Fink, G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1975)
    Chianina-X steers gained consistently during a 151-day finishing test and produced high yielding carcasses with 0.06 in. fat and 1.71 square of loin per hundred pounds of carcass. Average USDA quality grade was between ...
