    Our objective was to determine the effects of endpoint temperature, cooking method, and marbling on Warner-Bratzler shear force (WBSF; an objective method for determining tenderness) of three beef muscles. Eighteen subprimals ...
  • Larson, J.E.; Lamb, G.C.; Geary, T.W.; Stevenson, Jeffrey S.; Johnson, Sandra K.; Day, M.L.; Kesler, D.J.; DeJarnette, J.M.; Landblom, D.G.; Whittier, D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2004)
    Our objectives were to determine whether a fixed-timed artificial insemination (TAI) protocol could yield similar fertility rates to a protocol requiring detection of estrus and whether an injection of gonadotropin ...
  • Larson, J.E.; Lamb, G.C.; Stevenson, Jeffrey S.; Marston, T.W.; Johnson, Sandra K.; Day, M.L.; Geary, T.W.; Kesler, D.J.; DeJarnette, J.M.; Schrick, F.N.; Areseneau, J.D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2004)
    Our objectives were to determine whether a fixed-time artificial insemination (TAI) protocol could yield pregnancy rates similar to a protocol requiring detection of estrus and whether inclusion of a CIDR (a vaginal insert ...
  • Epp, M.P.; Hollis, Larry C.; Barnhardt, B.B.; Blasi, Dale A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2004)
    One backgrounding field study was conducted at two locations to compare the health and performance of high-risk receiving steers given an ExpressTM 5-Pasteurella Haemolytica- Multocida (PHM) vaccine or a Titanium® 5-PHM ...
  • Elwakeel, E.A.; Titgemeyer, Evan C.; Drouillard, James S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2004)
    We developed an in vitro assay to assess ruminal availability of protein in liquid feeds containing soluble protein/nitrogen. Microbial mass accumulating as a result of assimilation of dietary nitrogen by ruminal microbes ...
  • Gnad, D.; Marston, T.; Llewellyn, Donald A.; Palmer, G.; Hollis, Larry C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2004)
    Thirty-four Anaplasma marginale seropositive cows from a herd of 236 were allocated to treatments: 5 animals served as untreated controls, and 29 animals were treated with three injections of long-acting oxytetracycline ...
  • Hale, R.L.; Bishop, G.L.; Brethour, J.R.; Marston, T.T. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2004)
