  • 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 ...
  • Lawrence, J.D.; Hayenga, M.L.; Schroeder, Ted C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2001)
    A survey was conducted of the 15 largest beef processors to identify the mix of procurement practices being used and to understand reasons motivating recent processorproducer linkages. Processors are shifting away ...
  • Medina-Britos, M.A.; Richardson, A.M.; Lamb, G.C.; Hensley, B.A.; Marple, T.J.; Stevenson, Jeffrey S.; Johnson, Sandra K. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2001)
    A multi-location study was conducted using suckled beef cows in Minnesota and Kansas to test the benefit of adding a source of progestin to the Cosynch ovulation synchronization protocol (injections of GnRH, 7 days ...
  • Montgomery, Sean P.; Sindt, J.J.; Farran, T.B.; Pike, N.J.; Coetzer, C.M.; LaBrune, H.J.; Trater, A.M.; Hunter, R.D.; Stock, R.A.; Drouillard, James S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2001)
    Three hundred thirty-nine crossbred beef heifers were used in a 99-day growing study to identify optimum combinations of alfalfa hay and wet corn gluten feed (WCGF) in limit-fed growing diets. Diets contained 10, 20, ...
  • Lawrence, T.E.; King, D.A.; Montgomery, T.H.; Dikeman, Michael E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2001)
    We evaluated beef carcass data (12th rib fat thickness, hot carcass weight, ribeye area, percentage of kidney-pelvic-heart fat, USDA yield grade, and USDA quality grade) from 60,625 A-maturity steer and heifer ...
  • Lambert, B.D.; Löest, C.A.; Titgemeyer, Evan C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2001)
    A study was conducted to determine the response to amino acid supplementation when the first limiting amino acid (methionine) was provided in excess. Three ruminally cannulated Holstein steer calves (281 lb) were fed ...
  • Medina-Britos, M.A.; Richardson, A.M.; Lamb, G.C.; Hensley, B.A.; Marple, T.J.; Stevenson, Jeffrey S.; Johnson, Sandra K. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2001)
    A study was conducted in 609 beef cows to determine whether or not estrus might be resynchronized in previously inseminated beef cows to accommodate a second artificial insemination (AI) early in the breeding season. ...
  • Montgomery, Sean P.; Farran, T.B.; Sindt, J.J.; Coetzer, C.M.; Pike, J.N.; Trater, A.M.; LaBrune, H.J.; Hunter, R.D.; Laudert, S.B.; Drouillard, James S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2001)
    Five hundred seventy-two crossbred beef heifers were used to compare gain and feed efficiency of cattle consuming restricted quantities of energy-dense growing diets containing varying concentrations of Rumensin® and ...
  • Gleghorn, J.F.; Marston, T.T.; Wanket, L.E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2001)
    A protocol to make anestrous cows more likely to cycle prior to estrous synchronization would greatly enhance reproductive efficiency. Ease of application, availability, and low cost make feeding melengestrol acetate ...
  • Trater, A.M.; Löest, C.A.; Lambert, B.D.; Titgemeyer, Evan C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2001)
    We evaluated the optimal level of alfalfa inclusion in limit-fed, soybean hull-based diets. Steers were fed soybean hull-based diets containing 0 to 30% alfalfa or alfalfa alone. Feed intakes were lower for alfalfa than ...
