  • 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 ...
  • Montgomery, Sean P.; Sindt, J.J.; Farran, T.B.; LaBrune, H.J.; Hunter, R.D.; Higgins, James J.; Nutsch, T.A.; Drouillard, James S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2000)
    One hundred sixty-four crossbred beef steers were used to determine optimal Rumensin ® concentrations in limit-fed, high-energy, growing diets. Diets contained 30, 40, or 50 grams of Rumensin per ton of dry matter ...
  • Fick, Walter H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2000)
    Two experiments were conducted near Maple Hill, KS in 1998 to compare the effectiveness of herbicides and mowing used alone and in combination for control of sericea lespedeza (Lespedeza cuneata). Remedy® at 0.5 lb/acre ...
  • Greenwood, R.H.; Titgemeyer, Evan C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2000)
    A study was conducted to determine the limiting amino acids for cattle fed soybean hullbased diets. Ruminally cannulated Holstein steers (335 lb) were maintained in metabolism crates, fed the same basal diet (73% ...
  • Langemeier, Michael R.; Jones, R.; Kuhl, G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2000)
    This study examined improvements in the finishing performance of steers and heifers from 1990 to 1998 by measuring the rate of technological change. The rates of technological change were 0.58% per year for finishing ...
  • Limsupavanich, R.; Kropf, Donald H.; Hachmeister, K.A.; Loughin, T.M.; Boyle, Elizabeth A. E.; Boland, Michael A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2000)
    Chilled (35±3°F) or frozen (0±3°F) all-natural beef and beef-buffalo frankfurters made with or without sodium nitrite (NaNO2) were evaluated. Treatments included frankfurters made with: all-natural beef without NaNO2 ...
  • Sindt, J.J.; Montgomery, Sean P.; Farran, T.B.; Drouillard, James S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2000)
    Steam-flaked corn samples were used in a series of experiments to determine if refractive index could be used as a rapid, inexpensive method to predict starch availability. Results were best when samples were incubated ...
  • LaBrune, H.J.; Bindel, D.J.; Coetzer, C.C.; Löest, C.A.; Hunter, R.D.; Higgins, James J.; Drouillard, James S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2000)
    Blood glucose levels of finishing cattle were measured between 3 and 30 days prior to slaughter and compared to performance and carcass traits. In trial 1, blood samples were obtained from 318 heifers at 2 hours ...
  • Lamb, G.C.; Cartmill, J.A.; Hensley, B.A.; El-Zarkouny, S.E.; Marple, T.J.; Stevenson, Jeffrey S.; Grieger, David M. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2000)
    In two experiments, combining a source of progestin with the ovulation synchronization protocol using gonadotropin-releasing hormone plus prostaglandin F2a (GnRH + PGF2a) tended to increase or statistically increase ...
  • Hunter, R.D.; Nutsch, T.A.; Drouillard, James S.; Blasi, Dale A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2000)
    A comparison was made of different supplementation strategies for steer calves wintered on brome hay for 109 days. Treatments consisted of no supplement, 1.33 lb/head daily of a 30% protein range cube, a commercially ...
  • George-Evins, C.D.; Unruh, John A.; Marsden, James L.; Kastner, Curtis L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2000)
    A questionnaire to determine the use of blade tenderizers in beef fabrication facilities was sent to 241 members of the North American Meat Processors Association (NAMP). Eighty-four percent of the 90 respondents ...
  • Hachmeister, K.A.; Kropf, Donald H.; Gill, V.S.; Hunt, Melvin C.; Kaye, R.J.; Marsden, James L.; Kastner, Curtis L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2000)
    This research focused on the effects of an electron beam irradiation treatment with the Repetitive High Energy Pulsed Power (PHEPP) accelerator at Sandia National Laboratories. Test variables included irradiation/sto ...
  • Hajmeer, M.N.; Ceylan, E.; Marsden, James L.; Phebus, Randall K. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2000)
    The effect of blade tenderization on translocation of natural microflora from the surface to the interior of longissimus dorsi steaks aged for 7, 14, and 21 days was evaluated. Samples from the exterior and interior ...
  • Broweleit, B.; Huston, J.E.; Grum, D.E.; Day, M.L.; Johnson, Sandra K. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2000)
    We examined the potential of adding gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) to a synchrony system based on melengestrol acetate-prostaglandin F2(MGA-PGF2) to increase the precision of synchronized estrus and augment ...
