  • Veloso, L.; Loe, E.; Unruh, John A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2006)
    Sixteen crossbred steers were used to compare performance and carcass characteristics of animals from accelerated and “natural” cattle production systems. Steers in the accelerated group (8 head) were implanted with Component ...
  • Ryan, S.M.; Seyfert, M.; Hunt, Melvin C.; Mancini, R.A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2006)
    Two experiments investigated the effects of cooking rate and post-cooking holding time on the internal cooked color of ground beef patties. In Experiment 1, patties were cooked rapidly (1.8ºF/second) or slowly (0.4ºF/second). ...
  • Eborn, D.R.; Freneau, G.E.; Grieger, David M. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2006)
    Previous research has shown that the 7-11 Cosynch protocol using melengestrol acetate (MGA) is effective in synchronizing beef heifers. This study compared MGA and a vaginal insert containing progesterone (CIDR) in ...
  • Harborth, K.W.; Marston, T.T.; Llewellyn, Donald A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2006)
    An experiment was conducted to determine if corn and grain sorghum dried distillers grains could be effective protein supplements for growing beef replacement heifers. Crossbred heifers (n=77) were individually fed 6 ...
  • Christopher, J.A.; Marston, T.T.; Brethour, J.R.; Stokka, Gerald L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2006)
    The objective of this trial was to determine if types of dewormers affected carcass characteristics. Crossbred steers (n=428) were stratified by weight and ultrasound marbling score and administered either Dectomax ...
  • Sisson, E.K.; Hutcheson, J.P.; Yates, D.A.; Johnson, B.J. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2006)
    Feedlot heifers (1,147) weighing 622 lb were used to evaluate the effects of implant strategy and Optaflexx administration. Implant treatments included Revalor-200 (R200) at arrival, or Revalor-IH at arrival and ...
  • Winterholler, S.J.; Parsons, G.L.; Sissom, E.K.; Hutcheson, J.P.; Swingle, R.S.; Johnson, B.J. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2006)
    Two-thousand two-hundred fifty-two yearling steers (690 lb) were used to evaluate the effects of Optaflexx and days on feed on finishing steer performance and carcass characteristics. Treatment groups included serial ...
  • Quinn, M.J.; Loe, E.R.; Webb, A.S.; Corrigan, M.E.; Drouillard, James S.; Depenbusch, Brandon E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2006)
    An experiment was conducted to determine the effects of FlaxLic supplement blocks, fed free-choice during feedlot finishing, on heifer performance, carcass quality, and fatty acid profiles of loin steaks. Heifers (n=302, ...
  • Barnhardt, B.B.; Forcherio, J.C.; Scott, R.R.; Reinhardt, Christopher D.; Blasi, Dale A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2006)
    A grazing study was conducted using 445 crossbred beef steers (496 lb) to determine the benefits of feeding a grain-based supplementon burned and unburned native pasture, with and without a Safe-Guard (fenbendazole) ...
  • Babcock, A.; Jones, R.; Langemeier, Michael R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2006)
    This study had three primary objectives: 1) to examine the effects that individual performance and ingredient price factors have on cost of gain; 2) to quantify the annual and/or seasonal trend in cost of gain in Kansas ...
  • Babcock, A.; Jones, R.; Langemeier, Michael R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2006)
    This study had three primary objectives: 1) to determine if there is an annual and/or seasonal trend in percentage of death loss in Kansas feedlots; 2) to examine the difference in death loss between steers and heifers; ...
  • Walker, D.K.; Higgins, James J.; Johnson, B.J.; Titgemeyer, Evan C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2006)
    An experiment was conducted to evaluate the interaction between steroidal implantation and feeding ractopamine on nitrogen retention, blood metabolites, and messenger RNA (mRNA) expression. Six Holstein steers (initially ...
  • 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 ...
  • Ahnström, M.L.; Seyfert, M.; Hunt, Melvin C.; Johnson, D.E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2006)
    The traditional dry-aging method for beef was compared with a novel technique of dry aging in a highly moisture-permeable vacuum bag. Paired beef strip loins were cut into four sections and were dry aged traditionally ...
  • Llewellyn, Donald A.; Teutemacher, K.L.; Marston, T.T.; Sanderson, M.W.; Hollis, Larry C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2006)
    Calves from a commercial beef herd were evaluated for weight gain differences based upon the bovine leukosis virus (BLV) serological status of their dams. One hundred forty-two multiparous cows from a commercial beef ...
  • Bryant, A.M.; Barnhardt, B.B.; Epp, M.P.; Glaenzer, S.J.; Blasi, Dale A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2006)
    This study was conducted to evaluate the performance of ISO 11785 radio frequency identification (RFID) cattle ear tags and readers under ideal laboratory conditions. Tag and reader manufacturer identities are masked to ...
