    A pasture/feedlot field study was conducted to evaluate the effects of a single Ralgro® implant during the stocker phase on steer grazing performance and subsequent feedlot performance and carcass merit. A total of ...
  • Marston, T.T.; Yauk, D.O. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2001)
    Native grass samples were collected monthly for five years and analyzed for nutrient content. Crude protein and ADF content indicate that grass quality is highest in May and June, then steadily declines until October. ...
  • Mintert, J.; Schroeder, Ted C.; Marsh, T. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2001)
    We investigated factors that have affected beef demand over the last two decades. Beef demand is typically modeled as a function of beef prices, competing meat prices, prices of all other goods, and consumer expenditures. ...
  • Christmas, R.A.; Spire, M.F.; Sargeant, J.M.; Tucker, Sharon K.; Moser, Daniel W. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2001)
    Breeding soundness examination data on over 1,200 yearling Angus bulls were analyzed to determine heritability of and genetic relationships among breeding soundness traits. Breeding soundness exam procedures were ...
  • Obuz, E.; Yancey, E.J.; Lawrence, T.E.; King, D.A.; Dikeman, Michael E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2001)
    We used an electric belt grill, a forced air convection oven, and an electric broiler to cook steaks from three beef muscles; outside round (biceps femoris), loin strip (longissimus lumborum) and eye round (semitendi ...
  • Sammel, L.M.; Hunt, Melvin C.; Kropf, Donald H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2001)
    The beef inside round muscle, especially the deep portion, has poor color stability, a troublesome condition for the meat industry. We examined influences of pre-rigor temperature and pH decline on chemistry of the inside ...
  • Wickersham, T.A.; Cochran, R.C.; Dhuyvetter, D.V.; Farmer, C.G.; Grieger, David M. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2001)
    An experiment was conducted to determine the effect of providing a small amount of a high-protein supplement during the fall and effects of increasing subsequent level of winter supplementation on cow-calf performance. One ...
  • Timm, R.R.; Hachmeister, K.A.; Sammel, L.M.; Rasor, A.E.; Unruh, John A.; Stroda, Sally L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2001)
    Aging loin strip, bottom, and eye of round steaks for 21 days decreased Warner- Bratzler Shear (WBS) values (increased tenderness). For the top round, aged semimembranosus muscle steaks tended to have lower WBS values ...
  • King, D.A.; Lawrence, T.E.; Schafer, D.E.; Dikeman, Michael E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2001)
    We evaluated the interrelationships among carcass characteristics of steers and heifers selected from commercial feedlots for competition in the Beef Empire Days live and carcass contests. Because judging criteria are ...
