  • Tuma, H.J.; Kropf, Donald H.; Kolstad, S.P.; Mackintosh, D.L. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1967)
    Information on animal growth and development, although complex and not fully understood, is necessary to determine the stage at which a beef animal will produce the most desirable carcass. True growth involves an increase ...
  • Thompson, A.W.; Marston, T.T.; Sanderson, M.; Chenoweth, P. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2004)
    Breeding-soundness evaluations are a common tool in the beef industry to test a bull’s potential fertility. These evaluations place a bull into one of three categories: satisfactory, unsatisfactory, or deferred. These ...
  • Ward, C.; Lawrence, J.; Feuz, D.; Schroeder, Ted C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2003)
    Significant changes in fed cattle marketing methods have occurred over time. This report summarizes a survey conducted to determine current and intended marketing practices of cattle feeders. Use of marketing agreements has ...
  • Hanson, K.L.; Schalles, R.S.; Harbers, L.H.; Thompson, Curtis R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1995)
    We compared upland and bottomland cereals seeded during 1991 at the KSU Agricultural Research Center - Hays. The five crops (three varieties of triticale, a winter wheat, and a winter rye) were harvested as whole ...
  • Good, D. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1963)
    America owes a great deal of the founders of the Hereford, Angus and Shorthorn breeds of beef cattle, the dominant U.S. beef breeds. Early Scotch and English breeders in developing the beef breeds aimed to breed cattle ...
  • Allen, Dell M.; Hunt, Melvin C.; Kropf, Donald H.; Gutowski, G.; Harrison, A.; Smith, M.E.; Kastner, Curtis L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1977)
    Thirty-eight crossbred steers of known background were randomly assigned to four feeding regimes. All initially were fed on a brome and bluestem pasture supplemented during winter with alfalfa and protein. Ten grass-fed ...
  • Reed, Carl; Trigo-Stockli, D.M.; Blasi, Dale A.; Fairchild, Fred J. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1998)
    Pelleted wheat middlings samples were collected from four Kansas flour mills in March, April, and May, 1997 to characterize their moisture content and bulk density as they would be purchased directly from the mills by a ...
  • Hart, R.A.; Niroomand, F.; Bolsen, K.K.; Lubinski, M.A.; Aimutis, W.R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1990)
    Indigenous lactic acid bacteria (LAB) were isolated from five silage crops in the 1987 growing season: wheat, alfalfa, com, interseeded grain sorghum and soybeans, and forage sorghum. All crops had post-harvest LAB counts ...
  • Wheeler, T.L.; Cundiff, L.V.; Koch, R.M.; Crouse, J.D.; Dikeman, Michael E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1997)
    Retail product (RP) yields of 888 steers were obtained from mating Hereford (H) and Angus (A) dams to H or A (HA), Charolais (Ch), Gelbvieh (G b), Pinzgauer (Pz), Shorthorn (Sh), Galloway (Gw), Longhorn (Lh), Nellore (Ne), ...
  • Henricks, D.M.; Kuhl, G.L.; Spire, M.F.; Blasi, Dale A.; Drouillard, James S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2000)
    A 147-day study was conducted to determine the sequential growth responses and serum hormone profiles of growing heifer calves implanted with anabolic growth promotants. Forty eight previously nonimplanted crossbred ...
  • Richardson, D.; Smith, E.F.; Brethour, J.R.; Koch, B.A.; Tsien, W.S.; Carmack, B.D.; Boren, Fred W. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1961)
    Cobalt is a trace mineral element which is essential to the health and well-being of animals. If it is deficient in the ration, it should be supplied. A cobalt bullet, which is placed in the rumen, was developed in Australia ...
  • Koch, R.A.; Smith, E.F.; Richardson, D.; Boren, Fred W. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1961)
    Twenty-seven head of Hereford heifers of good to choice quality were used in this trial. They previously had been used to study various winter treatments. Treatments were as follows: control lot. Cracked sorghum grain and ...
  • Koch, B.A.; Smith, E.F.; Richardson, D.; Cox, R.F. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1960)
    Earlier work at this station indicated that supplemental trace minerals may be of value in some instances. Introduction of the so-called cobalt “bullet” has made it possible to study one of these trace minerals alone as a ...
  • Bolsen, K.; Ilg, H.; Riley, Jack G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1980)
    Four corn silages (41 to 46% DM) were made August 23 to 26, 1978; treatments were: 1) no additive (control), 2) 8.16 lbs of Cold-flo ammonia per ton, 3) 1.0 lb of Sila-bac per ton, and 4) 1.0 lb of Silo-Best per ton. ...
  • Kropf, Donald H.; Hunt, Melvin C.; Piske, D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1987)
    We conducted two studies in response to a severe problem with ground beef color encountered by beef fabricators and retailers. We concluded that: (1) Loss of muscle chemical-reducing capability upon grinding, with subsequent ...
  • Ryan, S.M.; Seyfert, M.; Hunt, Melvin C.; Mancini, R.A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2006)
    Two experiments investigated the effects of cooking rate and post-cooking holding time on the internal cooked color of ground beef patties. In Experiment 1, patties were cooked rapidly (1.8ºF/second) or slowly (0.4ºF/second). ...
  • Hunt, Melvin C.; Schoenbeck, J.J.; Dobbels, T.E.; Dikeman, Michael E.; Stroda, Sally L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1999)
    Hereford × Angus carcasses were infused with a solution of either sugar/phosphate or calcium chloride immediately after exsanguination to determine effects on color stability during retail display. A calcium chloride ...
  • Neill, S.; Marston, T.T.; Higgins, James J.; Unruh, John A.; Jaeger, John R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2009)
    Mature cows are typically removed from the cow herd for various reasons, such as reproductive inefficiency and poor performance. It has been estimated that as much as 15 to 25% of a ranch’s revenue may be from cull cows. ...
