  • Perry, H.B.; Larson, G.H.; Lipper, R.I.; Smith, E.F.; Boren, Fred W. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1966)
    Each of two lots was 24’ x 92’, one completely surfaced with concrete; the other, soil except for a 24’ x 16’ concrete feeding floor where the cattle stood to eat from a fence line feeder.
  • Fairbanks, G.E.; Hoover, J.D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1976)
    Two types of big round balers and a small stackmaker were used to harvest grain sorghum stubble after the grain was harvested during the fall and winter months of 1975. The stubble was about 21 inches high and about 4 ...
  • Obuz, E.; Yancey, E.J.; Lawrence, T.E.; King, D.A.; 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 steaks from three beef muscles; outside round (biceps femoris), loin strip (longissimus lumborum) and eye round (semitendi ...
  • Keay, L.E.; Kiracofe, G.; Odde, Kenneth G.; Stevenson, Jeffrey S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1983)
    One-hundred eighteen heifers were used to determine the effectiveness of Alfaprostol as a heat synchronization agent. Seventy-nine were injected twice (12 days apart) with 6 mg Alfaprostol per head and 39 were not treated. ...
  • Bradford, Heather L.; Moser, Daniel W.; Bormann, Jennifer M.; Weaber, Robert L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2014)
    Reproductive failure is consistently a top reason for culling beef cows from the herd. Culling young females is very costly to commercial producers because a young female hasn’t generated enough income to pay for the ...
  • Eborn, D.R.; Spiker, C.R.; Sullivan, R.R.; Grieger, David M. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2009)
    Two aims of heifer estrus synchronization protocols are to induce prepubertal heifers to start cycling by the beginning of the breeding season and to shorten time spent in estrous detection. Use of progestins such as ...
  • Minick Bormann, J.; Moser, Daniel W.; Marston, T.T. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2008)
    Feed is one of the largest costs in a cow/calf or feedlot operation. However, very little data is available to aid producers in genetically improving their herd for feed efficiency. In Australia, bull tests record individual ...
  • Glaze, J.B.; Schalles, R.R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1994)
    Performance data from a Polled Hereford herd selected for feed conversion were used in the calculation of heritabilities and genetic correlations for birth weight (BWT), weaning weight (WWT), and yearling weight ...
  • Glaze, J.B.; Schalles, R.R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1994)
    Performance data from a Polled Hereford herd selected for feed conversion were used in the calculation of heritabilities and genetic correlations for birth weight (BWT), weaning weight (WWT), and yearling weight ...
  • Johnson, M.Z.; Schalles, R.R.; Olson, W.; Dikeman, Michael E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1992)
    Heritabilities and genetic correlations for ultrasound-measured ribeye area and fat thickness, as well as growth traits and scrotal circumference, were determined using performance records of 1613 Brangus calves ...
  • Menzies, C.S.; Ahlschwede, G.; Wheat, J.D.; Mackintosh, D.L.; Kropf, Donald H. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1965)
    Data was collected on 91 lambs of known breeding born during the fall, 1963. The lambs were from ewes in the original fine-wool flock and were sired by 10 performance-tested Hampshire rams. This was the ewes fifth lamb crop.
  • Menzies, C.S.; Wheat, J.D.; Mackintosh, D.L.; Kropf, Donald H. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1964)
    Data were collected on 94 lambs of known breeding born the fall of 1962. The lams were from ewes in the original fine-wool flock sired by eight unrelated Suffolk yearling rams. This was the ewes fourth lam crop.
  • Hillman, M.; Menzies, C.S.; Wheat, J.D.; Mackintosh, D.L.; Merkel, R.A. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1962)
    This is a continuous project to the North-Central-50 Regional Sheep Breeding Project. The Kansas State Project was initiated to determine relationships between various carcass measurements and live animal traits, to estimate ...
  • Menzies, C.; Hillman, M.; Wheat, J.D.; Mackintosh, D.L.; Merkel, R.A. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1961)
    This is a contributing project to the North Central-50 Regional Sheep Breeding Project. The Kansas State project was initiated in the spring of 1959 to determine relationships between various carcass measurements and live ...
  • Minick, J.A.; Pollak, E.J.; Wilson, D.E.; Dressler, E.W.; Dikeman, Michael E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2003)
    The objective of this study was to estimate heritabilities and genetic correlations for Warner- Bratzler shear force and marbling score of longissimus steaks from Angus-, Charolais-, Hereford-, and Simmental-sired cattle ...
  • Kriese, L.A.; Schalles, R.R.; Lomas, Lyle W. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1986)
    Heterosis estimates were determined for gestation length, birth weight, and yearling weight using a two-breed rotational crossbreeding system with Angus and Simmental cattle. Heterosis for gestation length was -.3%; birth ...
  • Luchsinger, S.E.; Hunt, Melvin C.; Kropf, Donald H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1997)
    To determine the effects of storage in a high-carbon dioxide, modified-atmosphere package (MAP) on shelf life, beef strip steaks were packaged under 30% CO2-70% N2 and stored for up to 42 days at 30 or 38 ̊F. ...
  • Heidker, J.; Bolsen, K.; Hinds, M.; Ilg, H.; Janicki, B.; Young, B. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1985)
    High moisture corn harvested at 18 and 26% moisture, rolled, treated with 0, .75, 1.5, or 2.25% urea (DM basis), and ensiled was evaluated for fermentation rate, chemical composition, and aerobic stability. Adding urea ...
  • Young, B.; Smith, R.; Bolsen, K.; Ilg, H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1984)
    Dry rolled corn, ensiled high moisture corn, and high moisture corn that was rolled and ensiled with urea or left whole and ensiled with urea were compared in two cattle trials. Dry corn gave the poorest cattle performance; ...
