    his study examined interrelationships among Warner-Bratzler shear force (WBSF), evaluation by a highly trained descriptive-texture- profile (DTP) sensory panel, and evaluation by a trained descriptive attribute ...
  • Marston, T.T.; Kreikemeier, K.K.; Gleghorn, J.F.; Huck, G.L.; Wistuba, T.J. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1999)
    Two finishing trials were performed to determine if raw soybeans could be incorporated into diets to partially replace soybean meal and beef tallow. Our data indicated that no sacrifices in animal performance, feed ...
  • Thompson, K. E.; Lamb, G.C.; Stevenson, Jeffrey S.; Grieger, David M. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1999)
    As in our previous studies, the GnRH + PGF2" treatment was very effective in inducing a fertile estrus and(or) ovulation. Ovulations induced in response to the first GnRH injection averaged 48% in three herds and ranged ...
  • Lamb, G.C.; Cartmill, J.A.; Hensley, B.A.; Marple, T.J.; Stevenson, Jeffrey S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1999)
    The Cosynch protocol (GnRH 7 days before and again 48 h after PGF2" with AI at the second GnRH injection) produced pregnancy rates in suckled beef cows that exceeded 50% without heat detection and with only three handlings ...
  • Glaze, J.B. Jr.; Schalles, R.R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1999)
    Weight and milk production records of Polled Hereford cows born from 1967 to 1979 were used to fit growth and lactation curves. A multiple-trait, derivative-free, restricted maximum likelihood (MTDFREML) procedure, utilizing ...
  • Farmer, C.G.; Cochran, R.C.; Simms, D.D.; Heldt, J.S.; Mathis, C.P. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1999)
    Sixteen ruminally fistulated steers were used to evaluate the effects of feeding supplements containing combinations of two wheat-milling by-products on forage intake, digestibility, and ruminal characteristics. The ...
  • Spire, M.F.; Sargeant, J.M.; Blasi, Dale A.; Drouillard, James S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1999)
    Infrared thermography (IRT) can be used successfully to differentiate abscessed implanted ears from nonimplanted ears 8 days postimplanting. Abscessed ears averaged 5.7EF warmer than nonimplanted ears when ambient ...
  • Hunt, Melvin C.; Killinger, K.M.; Campbell, R.E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1999)
    We measured the incidence of premature browning during cooking in ground beef that was purchased from retail supermarkets and prepared using common household procedures. Patties made from meat on the outer portion ...
  • Abdulkarim, B.G.; Smith, J. Scott (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1999)
    he natural antioxidant carnosine, moisture retention by covered cooking, and low temperature cooking were evaluated as ways to inhibit heterocyclic amine (HCA) formation in fried ground beef. Samples were fried at 375EF ...
  • Kang, D.H.; Crozier-Dodson, B.A.; Jiang, G.; Shi, X.; Fung, Daniel Y. C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1999)

  • Greenwood, H.; Löest, C.A.; Titgemeyer, Evan C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1999)
    Ruminally cannulated Holstein steers were used in three nitrogen balance experiments to determine the sequence of limiting amino acids for growing steers fed soybean hull-based diets. The steers in all experiments were ...
  • Powell, T.H.; Hunt, Melvin C.; Dikeman, Michael E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1999)
