  • Wendelburg, J.W.; Lambert, D.L.; Thippareddi, H.; Kastner, Curtis L.; Phebus, Randall K.; Marsden, James L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2002)
    Prime rib is generally prepared by cooking to low temperatures for long times to attain the desired tenderness and juiciness. Destruction of Salmonella spp. in blade tenderized prime rib was examined by following ...
  • Hix, E.L.; Bell, T.D.; Parrish, D.B.; Good, A.L. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1952)
    The consumption of salt by herbivorous animals in general, and their apparent relish for salt, have been recognized for many years, but its importance may be questioned by many because of lack of knowledge of both the ...
  • Schemm, T.J.; DeBey, B.M.; Nagaraja, T. G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1999)
    Sarcina-like bacteria, possibly Sarcina ventriculi, have been seen upon histopathologic examination of the abomasums of calves that died of abomasal bloat. The ability of the organism to grow at a low pH and produce large ...
  • Harmoney, Keith R.; Johnson, Sandra K.; Cochran, R.; Vanzant, E.; Wilson, J.; Yauk, D.; Holder, Michael S.; Allen, B.; Bell, W.; Jansonius, H.; Jones, Timothy J.; Ploger, Mark D.; McClure, Gregory W. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2002)
    The K-State Research and Extension Forage Task Force surveyed Kansas rangelands during the course of seasonal changes to enable producers and managers to better estimate the feed value of their pasture forage during ...
  • Langemeier, Michael R.; Mintert, J.; Schroeder, Ted C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1991)
    This study examined the impact of date of feedlot placement on feed conversion, daily gain, and death loss. Results indicated that heifers placed on feed from September to December required more feed per pound of gain, ...
  • Mintert, J.; Langemeier, Michael R.; Schroeder, Ted C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1991)
    Analysis of 10 years of closeouts from a western Kansas feedlot demonstrated that steer performance exhibits significant seasonal variation. Steers weighing 700 to 800 lb when placed on feed in September through ...
  • Cochran, R.C.; Vanzant, E.S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1991)
    Concentration of fiber in the forage selected by beef steers grazing bluestem range during a drought year (1989) was highest in the winter but declined substantially in the spring and remained fairly constant throughout ...
  • Schalles, R.R.; Blum, J.K.; Smith, W.H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1977)
    Selecting animals for decreased feed per unit of gain has made small changes in feed conversion over a four-year period. Adjusting for maintenance requirements by using mid weight to 0.75 power was not entirely satisfactory ...
  • White, J.; Bolsen, K.; Kirch, B.; Pfaff, L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1988)
    Eighty forage sorghum cultivars were compared in 1986 for agronomic and silage quality traits. Silage yield ranged from 5.3 to 10.0 tons (t) of dry matter (DM) per acre (mean, 7.4 t); grain yield, from 13 to 113 bushels ...
  • Glaze, J.B. Jr.; Schalles, R.R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1995)
    Performance records of 1459 Polled Hereford cattle born from 1967 through 1979 were analyzed to estimate genetic parameters and the direct and correlated responses that were due to selection for feed conversion. Her ...
  • Glaze, J.B. Jr.; Schalles, R.R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1999)
    Direct and correlated responses to selection for improved feed conversion were estimated from performance records of 1459 Polled Hereford cattle born from the spring of 1967 through the spring of 1979. Data were ...
  • Harbers, L.H.; Sapienza, D.A.; Schwanke, L.; Kazemi, S.M.; Smith, E.F. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1981)
    We used steers with esophageal cannulas to measure selenium in burned and unburned bluestem pastures between May and September. Individual variation among steers sampled varied as much as two fold in selenium content. ...
  • Pickett, A.G.; Smith, E.F. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1949)
    Considerable interest has developed in the possibilities of self feeding a protein supplement to cattle on grass. Self feeding is a labor saving and eliminates the need for rounding up cattle every day. Under usual ...
  • Richardson, D.; Smith, E.F.; Koch, B.A.; Cox, R.F.; Boren, Fred W. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1959)
    Forty Hereford heifer calves from the same herd were divided as equally as possible on the basis of weight and conformation into four lots of 10 animals each. Animals in all lots received all the sorghum silage they would ...
  • Richardson, D.; Smith, E.F.; Koch, B.A.; Cox, R.F. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1958)
    Phosphoric acid has been found to be an excellent source of phosphorus when used in beef cattle rations. Urea, a non-protein-nitrogen compound, has long been recognized as a satisfactory source of protein equivalent for ...
  • Richardson, D.; Mackintosh, D.L.; Merkel, R.A. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1958)
    The details of management and feeding of animals involved in this test are given in part I of this report. Five wholesale rib cuts from each lot were obtained at the time of slaughter for cooking, palatability, mechanical ...
  • Smith, E.F.; Koch, B.A.; Richardson, D.; Cox, R.F. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1957)
    In this study a self-fed, urea-molasses mixture is being compared to molasses self-fed plus 1.3 pounds of soybean meal in an effort to determine if a urea-molasses mixture self-fed on dry grass will serve as an ...
  • Smith, E.F.; Koch, B.A.; Cox, R.F. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1958)
    The wintering phase of this trial has been reported previously in Circular 349. A self-fed urea-molasses mixture is being compared to molasses self-fed plus soybean oil meal in an effort to determine if a urea-molassess mixture ...
  • Luchsinger, S.E.; Kropf, Donald H.; Garc a Zepeda, C.M.; Marsden, James L.; Hunt, Melvin C.; Hollingsworth, M.E.; Stroda, Sally L.; Chambers, Edgar, IV; Kastner, Curtis L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1996)
    Irradiation had minimal effects on flavor and texture of frozen or chilled vacuum-packaged boneless beef steaks. A dose level of 3.5 kilograys (kGy) reduced beef aroma in chilled steaks. Irradiation did not influence internal ...
