  • Greene, G.L.; Cilek, J.E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1993)
    During 1992, adult stable fly populations were sampled in 25 Kansas feedlots. A native stable fly parasitic wasp, Spalangia nigroaenea, was released in 19 of these feedlots. Stable fly populations were reduced up to ...
  • Simon, M.; Keay, L.E.; Kiracofe, G.; Riley, Jack G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1983)
    Heifers that were 167 days pregnant when slaughtered gained faster and more efficiently than open heifers, or heifers that had been aborted with a prostaglandin analog at 83 or 138 days, unless the slaughter weight was ...
  • Neill, S.; Marston, T.T.; Daniel, M.J.; Higgins, James J.; Unruh, John A.; Dikeman, Michael E.; Hunt, Melvin C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2009)
    Approximately 16% of cattle slaughtered in the United States are cows. When these cows are removed from the herd, they are typically in thin condition. Steaks from these cows are considered tougher than those from young ...
  • Schalles, R.R.; Martin, L.C.; Zoellner, K.O. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1990)
    In a computer simulation based on KSU data, cattle bred and managed to be moved directly from weaning to feedlot and slaughtered at a young age produced the greatest profit. Cattle that were too small or too large and ...
  • Schalles, R.R.; Zoellner, K.O.; Dikeman, Michael E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1989)
    Fast-growth genotype steers placed on a high energy ration a month after weaning were compared to a slow-growth genotype on a growing ration for 155 days, followed by a finishing ration for 62 days. The fast-growth ...
  • Dean Bark, L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1985)
    The charts of the daily weather drawn by the KSU computer indicate what occurred in the past two years. The three smooth curves in each diagram represent the average conditions at Manhattan based on 70 years of records ...
  • Bark, L.D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1986)
    The charts that follow show graphically the daily weather in Manhattan during the last 2 years. Each chart has three smooth curves to represent the average weather conditions at Manhattan based on 70 years of records ...
  • Skaar, G.R.; Boyle, Elizabeth A. E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2011)
    Beef jerky is a popular meat snack that is simple to recognize and define. The USDA Food Standards and Labeling Policy Book (FSLPB) allows labeling use of the title “jerky” to a product that has been dried to a ...
  • White, Bradley J.; Larson, Robert L.; Thomson, Daniel U. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2007)
    Bovine viral diarrhea virus (BVDv) is an immunosuppressive virus affecting cattle in a multitude of ways. The varied presentation makes this disease difficult to identify in cow herds and the signs of a BVD infection ...
  • Mancini, R.A.; Hunt, Melvin C.; Kropf, Donald H.; Hachmeister, K.A.; Johnson, D.E.; Fox, Sean (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2002)
    This study evaluated the combined effects of storage temperature, storage time, display temperature, display time, and fat level on ground beef color. Storage at 32°F minimized discoloration during display compared ...
  • Aubel, C.E. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1955)
    This experiment was designed .to secure information on maximum use of alfalfa meal in protein supplemental mixtures for pigs in dry lot. The experiment on next page reports similar information from pigs on alfalfa ...
  • Aubel, C.E. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1956)
    Since pastures for swine are often poor, inadequate, or unavailable in Kansas, there is a growing appreciation of the value of alfalfa hay or meal in the rations of all swine brood sows (and pigs being fed for market). ...
  • Goll, S.J.; Kastner, Curtis L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1987)
    The dried weight of the material washed from meat surfaces by distilled water closely paralleled the binding strength between meat particles as measured by tensile strength testing. Sponges added to meat pieces during ...
  • Langemeier, Michael R.; Jones, R.D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2006)
    This study evaluated scope efficiency (the degree of efficiency gained from producing more than one product within the same farm) for a sample of crop and beef farms in Kansas. Scope and economic efficiency were estimated ...
  • Langemeier, Michael R.; Jones, R.; Kuhl, G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2000)
    This study examined improvements in the finishing performance of steers and heifers from 1990 to 1998 by measuring the rate of technological change. The rates of technological change were 0.58% per year for finishing ...
  • Leising, J.; Tuma, H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1972)
    Meat shrinkage is a major problem for the beef industry. Shrinkage (loss in weight) results from many factors: improper chilling, low humidity, not packaging, poor sanitation, or excessive ageing time. Most beef is chilled ...
  • Burson, D.E.; Hayward, L.H.; Hunt, Melvin C.; Kastner, Curtis L.; Kropf, Donald H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1979)
    We randomly assigned 112 Angus yearling steers to 14 nutritional groups fed varied ration energy levels and varied lengths of time. Blade tenderized and non-tenderized boneless rib steaks were evaluated by a taste panel ...
  • Timm, R.R.; Unruh, John A.; Dikeman, Michael E.; Hunt, dm; Lawrence, T.E.; Boyer, John E.; Marsden, James L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2002)
    We investigated mechanical force measurements on uncooked longissimus muscle as a means to predict Warner- Bratzler shear force (WBSF) and trained sensory panel tenderness (SPT) of cooked strip loin steaks. Uncooked ...
  • Axe, D.; Spire, M.; Riley, Jack G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1984)
    Three medication programs for newly purchased feeder calves were compared and found to be similar in effectiveness. There was considerable variation in cost between the three medication programs which indicates a potential ...
  • Parrish, D.B.; Aubel, C.E. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1959)
    Previous work has indicated• that vitamin A utilization and storage are reduced when pigs are infected with roundworms. Hygromix (S. hygroscopicus fermentation product, Lilly) has been used to reduce worm, infection in ...
