  • Schoneweis, D.A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1978)
    Marked enlargement and edema of the vulva are often noted in newborn gilts. An accompanying, but less conspicuous, lesion is enlarged, engorged mammary glands. Although not fully understood, the changes are thought to ...
  • Lawrence, T.E.; King, D.A.; Dikeman, Michael E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2001)
    We evaluated the temperature variation of an electric belt grill set at four temperatures, a forced-air convection oven set at three temperatures, and an electric broiler that has no temperature control. After finding that ...
  • Harner, Joseph P.; Smith, J.F. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2009)
    Performance of an evaporative cooling system was evaluated in the High Plains in a low-profile, cross-ventilated dairy facility housing 4,200 lactating cows. The temperature decrease across the 6-inch cellulose evaporative ...
  • Mancini, R.A.; Hunt, Melvin C.; Kropf, Donald H.; Hachmeister, K.A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2002)
    Increasing storage and display temperature and time of ground beef significantly increased microbial counts but lean level had no effect. Prolonged storage at abusive temperatures (48°F) caused up to 90% unacceptable ...
  • Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1969)
    Swine testing stations "performance prove” breeding lines for genetic progress in the swine industry. The phenotype of a boar is a combination of his genetic ability and environment (nutrition, health, and etc.). Thus by ...
  • Lawrence, T.E.; King, D.A.; Obuz, E.; Yancey, E.J.; Dikeman, Michael E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2001)
    We used an electric belt grill, a forced-air convection oven, and an electric broiler to cook 170 bottom round, 142 brisket, 177 top sirloin, 176 strip loin, and 136 eye of round steaks from USDA Select carcasses to ...
  • Highfill, C.M.; Font, O.E.; Kropf, Donald H.; Dikeman, Michael E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2011)
    In semitropical climates in the United States, Bos indicus breeds of cattle, primarily the Brahman breed, are utilized in crossbreeding programs with Bos taurus cattle to improve productivity by increasing disease and ...
  • Tuma, H.J.; Allen, Dell M.; Dikeman, Michael E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1971)
    Numerous instruments have been developed to objectively measure tenderness, an important eating characteristics of beef. The Kramer shear press and Warner-Bratzler shear show the best relationships to taste panel tenderness ...
  • Traylor, S.L.; Herrman, Timothy J.; Behnke, Keith C.; Hancock, Joe D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1995)
    As test weight was reduced from normal to intermediate (i.e., from 58 to 52 lb/bu), little change occurred in milling characteristics of grain sorghum. However, as test weight was decreased from intermediate to light (52 ...
  • Kluber, E.F. III; Minton, J. Ernest; Stevenson, Jeffrey S.; Davis, Duane L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1986)
    Crossbred male pigs were used to evaluate the influence of a synthetic progestogen on reproductive development. Concentrations of luteinizing hormone (LH) and testosterone in blood serum were reduced while boars were being ...
  • Dubois, P.C.; Harbers, L.H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1988)
    Over 16 years ago, an analytical instrument was developed that could rapidly determine the concentration of organic compounds from the spectra produced by the bonding between certain molecules. The instrument is based on ...
  • Laaser, G.N.; Kiracofe, G.H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1977)
    Eight cull Hereford cows were given 200-mg. injections of testosterone proprionate repository (Haver-Lockhart, Shawnee, KS) every other day for 20 days (10 injections). Four cows were given weekly booster injections with ...
  • Roberts, M.N.; Getty, Kelly J. K.; Boyle, Elizabeth A. E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2007)
    In 2003, the New Mexico Department of Health linked an outbreak of Salmonellosis with consumption of beef jerky. Due to the increasing commonality of foodborne illness associated with dried meats, in 2004 USDA/FSIS published ...
  • Getty, Kelly J. K.; Harper, N.M.; Boyle, Elizabeth A. E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2009)
    The New Mexico Department of Health linked salmonellosis to beef jerky in 2003 after 26 individuals became ill; this prompted a recall of nearly 21,600 lb of product. Following this incident, the USDA’s Food Safety and ...
  • Hachmeister, K.A.; Kropf, Donald H.; Gill, V.S.; Hunt, Melvin C.; Kaye, R.J.; Marsden, James L.; Kastner, Curtis L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2000)
    This research focused on the effects of an electron beam irradiation treatment with the Repetitive High Energy Pulsed Power (PHEPP) accelerator at Sandia National Laboratories. Test variables included irradiation/sto ...
  • Lamb, G.C.; Lynch, J.M.; Miller, B.L.; Traffas, V.; Corah, L.R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1998)
    In 1994, 1995, and 1996, a commercial heifer development operation purchased a total of 1542 potential replacement heifers. Heifers were purchased in the fall proceeding the spring breeding season and fed a silage-based ...
  • Smith, E.F.; Cox, R.F.; Koch, B.A.; Baker, F.H. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1957)
