  • Wallace, J.O.; Miller, W.F.; Johnson, B.J.; Reinhardt, Christopher D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2007)
    Feeding newly arrived cattle is commonly characterized by a few days of feeding longstemmed hay followed by a series of step-up diets, wherein concentrate levels are increased to promote ruminal adaptation to a highconcentrate ...
  • 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 ...
  • Wickersham, T.A.; Cochran, R.C.; Wickersham, E.E.; Moore, E.S.; Titgemeyer, Evan C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2007)
    Protein supplementation increases utilization (intake and digestion) of low-quality forage and ultimately animal performance. Despite its effectiveness, protein supplementation is often expensive. One strategy to reduce ...
  • Walker, Charles E.; Drouillard, James S.; Nagaraja, T. G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2007)
    Three experiments were conducted to determine effects of ractopamine-HCl, sold under the trade name Optaflexx, on rumen fermentation. In experiment 1, fermentative gas production was measured in vitro to determine the ...
  • Loe, E.R.; Corrigan, M.E.; Quinn, M.J.; Depenbusch, Brandon E.; Drouillard, James S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2007)
    Rapid expansion of the fuel ethanol industry has increased availability of distillery byproducts. Distiller’s grains with solubles (DGS) are the predominant byproduct of fermenting grains to fuel ethanol. During this ...
  • Barnhardt, B.B.; Epp, M.P.; Bryant, A.M.; Guiroy, P.J.; Blasi, Dale A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2007)
    Supplementation of range cattle with minerals is a common management practice that is used to maximize performance. Flint Hills grasses provide an adequate amount of protein for the diet through the first half of a ...
  • Wickersham, T.A.; Cochran, R.C.; Wickersham, E.E.; Gnad, D.P.; Titgemeyer, Evan C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2007)
    A common production practice throughout the United States is to supplement protein to cattle consuming low-quality forage (forage with a crude protein content of less than 7%) in order to improve animal performance ...
  • Wickersham, T.A.; Cochran, R.C.; Wickersham, E.E.; Titgemeyer, Evan C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2007)
    Low-quality forage utilization (intake and digestion) is improved by protein supplementation. Typically, the recommendation is to select supplements that are high in degradable intake protein because this fraction of the ...
  • Roberts, M.N.; Getty, Kelly J. K.; Boyle, Elizabeth A. E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2007)
    In 2003, the New Mexico Department of Health linked an outbreak of Salmonellosis with consumption of beef jerky. Due to the increasing commonality of foodborne illness associated with dried meats, in 2004 USDA/FSIS published ...
  • Barnhardt, B.B.; Bryant, A.M.; Epp, M.P.; Spire, M.F.; Blasi, Dale A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2007)
    One of the challenges regarding implementation of a national animal identification system is the logistics of reading and reporting EID (electronic identification) tag numbers as cattle move through the production cycle. ...
  • 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 ...
  • Fox, J.T.; Thornton, A.B.; Jacob, M.E.; Thomson, Daniel U.; Drouillard, James S.; Nagaraja, T. G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2007)
    Many human foodborne illnesses are caused by pathogens commonly harbored by food animals. Escherichia coli O157 is one of these pathogens commonly isolated from beef cattle feces and can enter the food chain at harvest. ...
  • Van Eenennaam, A.L.; Li, J.; Thallman, R.M.; Quaas, R.L.; Gill, C.; Franke, D.E.; Thomas, M.G.; Dikeman, Michael E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2007)
    Gene mapping and discovery programs have resulted in the detection of numerous DNA ‘markers’ for various beef cattle production traits. Prior to commercializing genetic markers, it is important to validate their purported ...
  • Pendell, D.L.; Schroeder, Ted C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2007)
    Concerns regarding management of animal disease and related perceptions about food safety have escalated substantially in recent years. Terrorist attacks of September 2001, discovery of bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE) ...
  • Breiner, S.J.; Grau, S.A.; Barnhardt, B.B.; Bryant, A.M.; Boone, Kris; Blasi, Dale A.; Schroeder, Ted C.; Breiner, Ryan M. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2007)
    Sources and channels of information used among agriculturalists have long been important issues in Cooperative Extension. A source is an entity that originates a message. By understanding from whom producers receive ...
  • May, M.L.; Quinn, M.J.; Drouillard, James S.; Walker, Charles E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2007)
    The purpose of this experiment was to determine optimal levels of distiller’s grains in finished diets with steam-flaked corn or dry rolled corn. Distiller’s grains have been used extensively in regions of the country in ...
