    One hundred seven of 112 heifers were in estrus 1 to 5 days after an injection of prostaglandin F2α given when a 7-day synchronization implant was removed. Checks for estrus were made every four hours and heifers were ...
  • Corah, L.R.; Beal, W.E.; Spire, M.F.; Stevenson, Jeffrey S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-11-02)
    Injecting a GnRH-analog at the time of estrus or at insemination did not generally improve conception rates in heifers inseminated following a synchronized estrus. However, within some herds. a significant positive response ...
  • Drake, C.L.; Smith, E.F.; Perry, H.B.; Lipper, R.I.; Larson, G.H. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-04-19)
    The Animal Husbandry and Agricultural Engineering departments cooperate in this project. The response of cattle with water applied as “artificial rain” on a concrete and a dirt surfaced lot is being studied. Ways to collect ...
  • Koch, B.A. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-05-06)
    The practice of raising pigs on an elevated slotted floor is receiving wide publicity. Slotted floors have been used in various parts of the world for many years, but they have only recently been used extensively in this ...
  • Wallace, J.O.; Reinhardt, Christopher D.; Thomson, Daniel U. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2009-12-07)
    The shipping and receiving period is one of the most stressful experiences during a calf’s lifetime. Stressors include weaning, commingling, transportation, processing, feed and water changes, and disease challenge placed ...
  • Pelton, C.D.; Allen, Dell M.; Corah, L.R.; Milliken, George A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-12-14)
    Our research showed that implanting bulls from birth to slaughter made steaks from bulls as acceptable as steers to consumer panels. Implanting bulls from weaning to slaughter resulted in the least desirable consumer panel ...
  • Feldkamp, T.; Lusk, J.; Schroeder, Ted C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-08-04)
    Determining needs and wants of consumers is important for the beef industry to reverse the downward trend in beef demand during the last two decades. This study used experimental auctions in conjunction with a survey ...

  • Vanzant, E.S.; Cochran, R.C.; Stafford, S.; St Jean, G.; Olson, K. C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-09-17)
    Ruminal degradation of organic matter and protein in alfalfa and prairie hay were evaluated in vivo, using cannulated cows, and in vitro, using a continuous-culture fermenter to simulate ruminal fermentation. Estimates of ...
  • Karr, K.J.; Kastner, Curtis L.; Marsden, James L.; Phebus, Randall K. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-09-02)
    Lebanon bologna raw batter was mixed with a five-strain mixture of Escherichia coli O157:H7 to achieve average inoculum levels of 7.79, 7.77, and 7.92 log CFU/g as deter mined on MSA, 202, and PRSA media, respectively. ...
  • Parks, J.C.; Lusby, K.S.; Brent, B.E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-03-15)
    Since the requirement of animals for net energy for maintenance (NEm) is influenced largely by weight of the animal, feed efficiency and animal performance improve rapidly as feed intake surpasses maintenance requirements. ...
