    Approximately 16% of the 31 million head of cattle harvested in the United States in 2005 were aged cows. Cow meat is known to be tougher than meat from young steers and heifers, and it typically has a less desirable, ...
  • Hutchinson, Stacy L.; Hunt, Melvin C.; Marston, T.T.; Unruh, John A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2007)
    Enhancement of steer and heifer meat has become a common practice, especially for some large retailers in the United States, because it increases the weight of salable product and decreases variability in tenderness and ...
  • Dobbins, C. A.; Tenhouse, D. E.; Eborn, D. R.; Johnson, Sandra K.; Harmoney, Keith R.; Stevenson, Jeffrey S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2007)
    Our objective was to determine the optimal time to inseminate lactating beef cows after applying the CO-Synch + CIDR protocol [injection of GnRH given seven days before and 48 to 72 hr after an injection of prostaglandin ...
  • Hijaz, F.; Smith, J. Scott; Kastner, Curtis L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2007)
    Anhydrous ammonia is used as a refrigerant in large warehouses for cooling meats, fruits, vegetables, milk, and other products. Ammonia offers several advantages over other refrigerants; it does not harm the ozone layer ...
  • Ameri, F.; Smith, J. Scott (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2007)
    Heterocyclic amines (HCAs) are carcinogenic and mutagenic compounds found at a level of parts per billion in grilled fish and meats. Since the connection between consumption of dietary carcinogens and risk of different ...
  • 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)
    The introduction of a National Animal Identification System (NAIS) into the United States has generated much confusion and controversy. The goal of the NAIS is to utilize 48-hour traceback in the event of an animal disease ...
  • Christopher, J.A.; Marston, T.T. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2007)
    Concepts related to energy efficiency in cattle have been the basis for many research projects. Even though differences in individuals have long been recognized, little effort has been focused on the causes of the observed ...
  • 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)
    While the world continues to evolve toward enhanced computer and Internet usage, the agricultural arena has been slower to follow. The objective of this survey was to examine the computer utilization practices of cow-calf ...
  • Loe, E.R.; Quinn, M.J.; Corrigan, M.E.; 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 greatly increased availability of distillery byproducts. Distiller’s grains with solubles (DGS) are the predominant byproduct of fermenting grains into fuel ethanol. During ...
  • 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)
    The proposed U.S. National Animal Identification System has generated concerns among producers relative to implementation of the system. Many of these concerns stem from the USDA’s Bovine Identification Working Group’s ...
  • Epp, M.; Barnhardt, B.; Bryant, A.; Blasi, Dale A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2007)
    Distiller’s grains are byproducts of the production of ethanol from grains and are an excellent source of protein and energy for cattle. The most prevalent use of distiller’s grains is in the finishing beef production ...
  • Quinn, M.J.; Loe, E.R.; Corrigan, M.E.; Drouillard, James S.; Depenbusch, Brandon E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2007)
    Whether occurring naturally or synthetically, beta-agonists are classified as phenethanolamines based on their chemical structure. Other specificities of structure determine the exact behavior of the compound in animals. ...
  • Quinn, M.J.; May, M.L.; Drouillard, James S.; Reinhardt, Christopher D.; Depenbusch, Brandon E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2007)
    Beta-adrenergic agonists are commonly used in livestock production to accelerate growth by enhancing lean tissue gain. These compounds repartition nutrients away from fat deposition and toward protein accretion. Generally, ...
  • Loe, E.R.; Quinn, M.J.; Depenbusch, Brandon E.; Drouillard, James S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2007)
    Rumensin and Tylan, both marketed by Elanco Products Company, have proved to be valuable feed additives when fed to finishing feedlot cattle. Rumensin was approved in the mid-1970s to improve feed efficiency and average ...
  • Schroeder, G.F.; Moore, E.S.; Titgemeyer, Evan C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2007)
    In growing pigs, when protein supply is adequate, protein deposition increases with an increase in energy intake. However, when amino acid supply is limited, protein deposition does not respond to increases in energy ...
  • Burns, M.G.; Buttrey, B.S.; Eborn, D.R.; Larson, J.E.; Lovaas, B.J.; Lamb, G.C.; Stevenson, Jeffrey S.; Olson, K. C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2007)
    Two experiments were conducted to evaluate the difference between gonadotropinreleasing hormone (GnRH) and human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) given at the beginning of a timed AI protocol and their effects on fertility. ...
