  • Spire, M.F.; Sargeant, J.M.; Drouillard, James S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2000)
    Sickness from undifferentiated respiratory disease in recently received feeder cattle reduced weight gain and altered radiant energy loss. Over a 35-day receiving period, weight gains were reduced 26.3% if an animal ...
  • Wistuba, T.J.; Whitlock, L.A.; Siefers, M.K.; Bolsen, K.K.; Pope, Ronald V. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2000)
    Twelve ruminally cannulated crossbred steers were used to evaluate the effects of stage of maturity and kernel processing (rolling) of whole-plant corn silage on nutrient digestibilities. The six silage rations were: ...
  • Coetzer, C.M.; Löest, C.A.; Bindel, D.J.; LaBrune, H.; Hunter, R.D.; Nutsch, T.A.; Higgins, James J.; Drouillard, James S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2000)
    Seventy two individually fed Angus × Hereford steers (642 lb) were used to evaluate the effects of supplementing limit-fed, growing diets with either soybean meal (SBM) or nonenzymatically browned soybean meal ...
  • Thippareddi, H.; Sporing, S.; Phebus, Randall K.; Marsden, James L.; Kastner, Curtis L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2000)
    The potential translocation of E. coli O157:H7 from the surface to the interior of whole muscle by blade tenderization was evaluated. Beef top sirloin subprimals were inoculated with 106 or 103 cfu/cm2 and passed ...
  • Stevenson, Jeffrey S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2000)
    Body condition, parity, and days postpartum at the onset of the breeding season determine the proportion of cows that initiated first postpartum ovarian activity and ovulated before the start of the breeding season. ...
  • Dhuyvetter, Kevin C.; Schroeder, Ted C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2000)
    Several important determinants need to be considered when analyzing price slides (priceweight relationships) for feeder cattle. The two most economically important determinants of price-weight slides are expected ...
  • Löest, C.A.; Armendariz, C.K.; Titgemeyer, Evan C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2000)
    An in vitro study was conducted to evaluate the degradation of betaine sources by rumen microbes. Five sources of betaine (anhydrous betaine, betaine-HCl, feed-grade betaine, lipidcoated betaine, and concentrated ...
