    Ranch-of-origin preconditioning can improve the welfare and performance of beef calves by decreasing the stress associated with weaning, transport, diet change, and commingling with other calves. Preconditioning methods ...
  • Lamb, G.C.; Lynch, L.M.; Stevenson, Jeffrey S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1996)
    Four treatments were initiated approximately 15 days after calving: 1) calf was weaned permanently from its dam (CW; n=6); 2) calf was present continuously with its dam (CPO; n=5); 3) calf was weaned permanently from ...
  • Viker, S.D.; Kiracofe, G.H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1990)
    It is generally accepted that the suckling stimulus and the interactions between lactation and level of nutrition regulate the interval from calving to cycling in beef cows. However, rnastectomized cows (udder removed) ...
  • Patterson, D.J.; Corah, L.R.; Brethour, J.R.; Negus, W.R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1987)
    The effect of heifer development on first calving and subsequent reproductive performance was evaluated in Angus x Hereford (AxH) and Brahman x Hereford (BxH) females. Heifers were fed to reach either 55% or 65% of ...
  • Carmack, C.F.; Hunt, Melvin C.; Kropf, Donald H.; Schwenke, J.R.; Kastner, Curtis L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1993)
    Natural flavorings were evaluated for use in low-fat ground beef, which frequently lacks flavor intensity. Three lean sources, A-maturity (young), E-maturity (mature cow), and imported (cow) beef round muscles, were used ...
  • Pfost, H.B.; Smith, E.F.; Richardson, D.; Boren, Fred W. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1965)
    the only variable planned in the diet was type of molasses, which composed 16% of the self-fed roughage-concentrate mixture. Cane molasses was used in two lots; hemicelluloses extract in two lots. The self-fed roughage-concentrate ...
  • Smith, E.F.; Richardson, D.; Deyoe, C.W.; Curtis, R.G.; Boren, Fred W. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1964)
    Choice grade Hereford steer calves in this test came from near Alden, Kansas, and were assigned to treatments on a random-weight basis. All lots received the same experimental diet except 10 percent molasses was substituted ...
  • Aperce, C.; Heidenreich, J.; Drouillard, James S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010)
    Escherichia coli O157:H7 contamination of human food products is a major concern for the beef industry. The pathogens responsible for outbreaks often originate from cattle, and E. coli O157:H7 can thrive in healthy cattle. ...
