  • Garmyn, A.; Moser, Daniel W. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2007)
    Feedlot managers often market entire pens as mixed groups, resulting in lower-quality, over-finished, or heavyweight carcasses. As the cattle industry has moved towards valuebased marketing systems, finding a costeffective ...
  • Lawrence, S.J.; Kreider, S.E.; Higgins, James J.; Allen, L.; Epp, M.P.; Ritter, P.; Blasi, Dale A.; Dikeman, Michael E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2013)
    The majority of cattle fed in commercial feedlots are processed and placed into pens without sorting into groups of uniform size and body condition. As a result of the variability in weight and condition, this management ...
  • Pohlman, F.W.; Zayas, J.F.; Dikeman, Michael E.; Unruh, John A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1997)
    Longissimus and pectoralis muscles were removed from 10 steer carcasses at 4 days postmortem , aged for 14 days at 4 ̊F, then assigned to either ultrasound (ULS) or convection (Conv) cooking to either 144 or 15 8 ...
  • Schalles, R.R.; Glaze, J.B.; Mallen-Spinzi, R.; Andries, K.M.; Rost, C.J.; Johnson, M.Z.; Olson, W.; Dikeman, Michael E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1993)
    Ultrasound-measured ribeye area (REA) expected progeny differences (EPD) were calculated for 2974 Brangus cattle. Carcass data were collected from 168 steer progeny sired by eight bulls with ultrasound-measured ribeye ...
  • Hollis, Larry C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2004)
    Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy, commonly called “mad cow disease” by members of the media, found its way into the United States and was diagnosed in December, 2003, in a Holstein dairy cow of Canadian origin. A significant ...
  • Janicki, B.; Bolsen, K.; Hinds, M.; Ilg, H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1984)
    Adding urea to forage sorghum greatly increased the ensiling temperature, produced a more rapid and extensive fermentation, and resulted in more shrink loss in the silo. Fermentrol®, an enzyme-inoculant additive, had ...
  • Bolsen, K.; Ilg, H.; Axe, D.; Smith, R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1985)
    Adding urea or limestone to forage sorghum silage increased lactic and acetic acids compared with untreated silage. Urea also elevated the ensiling temperature and increased the DM loss in the silo. Although calves fed ...
  • Swanson, R.W.; Smith, E.F. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1970)
    This test compared urea supplement (hand-fed), urea supplement (self-fed), and soybean meal (SBM) supplement (hand-fed) with cows on winter bluestem pasture. The supplements were formulated to supply the same amount of ...
  • Bailey, E.A.; Brake, D.W.; Anderson, David E.; Jones, M.L.; Titgemeyer, Evan C.; Olson, K. C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010)
    Maximizing utilization of native rangeland is an important aspect of the cow/calf phase of beef production. Native rangeland is often of poor quality (less than 7% crude protein). Protein content of the rangeland is ...
  • Richardson, D.; Smith, E.F.; Brent, B.E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1968)
    A previous test using sorghum silage (Kans. Agri. Expt. Sta. Bull. 507:5, 1967) indicated that 3 pounds of grain per day in silage would supply enough available energy for reasonably good utilization of nonprotein ...
  • Baker, F.H.; Smith, E.F.; Richardson, D.; Cox, R.F. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1957)
    An experiment previously conducted at this station demonstrated that beef heifers fed a completely pelleted ration made inferior gains, and had significantly lower carcass grades and dressing percentages than heifers fed ...
  • Koch, B.A.; Smith, E.F.; Richardson, D.; Cox, R.F.; Smith, J.; Boren, Fred W. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1959)
    One of the major problems confronting cattlemen is control of the occurrence of respiratory diseases such as shipping fever, colds, nasal congestion. and pneumonia. These respiratory conditions are especially troublesome ...
  • Smith, E.F.; Cox, R.F.; Good, D.L.; Mackintosh, D.L. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1951)
    The purpose of this study is to develop a system of fattening heifers for feeders who do not have native pasture or have no pasture. The plan of production is to buy good quality heifer calves in the fall, winter them well ...
  • Holz, J.P.; Houghton, P.L.; Spire, M.F. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1993)
    Gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) was administered to a group of 13- to 14- month-old Angus and Angus crossbred repeat-breeding heifers at the time of the second or third artificial insemination to determine ...
  • Broweleit, B.; Huston, J.E.; Grum, D.E.; Day, M.L.; Johnson, Sandra K. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2000)
    We examined the potential of adding gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) to a synchrony system based on melengestrol acetate-prostaglandin F2(MGA-PGF2) to increase the precision of synchronized estrus and augment ...
  • Bell, T.D.; Smith, W.H.; Erhart, A.B.; Gardner, A.W.; Mackintosh, D.L.; Soule, R. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1955)
    In the lamb-feeding tests at the Garden City Branch Station during the 1953-54 feeding season, one lot of 48 lambs was given stilbestrol implants of varying sizes at the beginning of the feeding period. Another lot of ...
  • Kiracofe, G.H.; Heekin, M.; Odde, Kenneth G.; King, M. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1981)
    The ability of the Kamar Heatmount Detector to identify cows ready for insemination 80 hours after two Lutalyse injections was tested with 439 beef cows and heifers. The detector was placed on the rump at the second injection ...
  • Waylan, A.T.; Campbell, R.E.; Unruh, John A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1999)
    Thirty beef carcasses were used to test the accuracy of three regression equations to predict ribeye area (REA) and to compare several strategies to rapidly estimate REAs. Linear measurements, USDA grids, and Video ...
