    Two hundred sixty-four Holstein steer calves (308 lb) were used in a 2×3 factorially designed experiment to compare the effect of two feeding systems and three implant strategies on performance and carcass characteristics. ...
  • Bedwell, K.R.; Wallace, N.; Nagaraja, T. G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1998)
    Fusobacterium necrophorum was quantified from ruminal contents and ruminal wall tissue collected at slaughter. Livers were examined and scored for abscesses. The mean concentration of F. necrophorum on the ruminal wall ...
  • Saginala, S.; Lechtenberg, K.F.; Kemp, K.E.; Hine, P.M.; Nagaraja, T. G.; Chengappa, M. M. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1998)
    The efficacy of Fusobacterium necrophorum crude leukotoxoid vaccine to immunize and protect steers against experimentally induced liver abscesses was evaluated. The vaccine consisted of cell-free culture supernatant ...
  • Schroeder, Ted C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1998)
    Pricing fed cattle on a value-based quality and yield grade grid provides the best opportunity for cattle producers to receive premiums associated with high quality cattle. However, grid discounts for cattle not desired ...
  • Mathis, C.P.; Cochran, R.C.; Woods, B.C.; Heldt, J.S.; Olson, K. C.; Grieger, David M. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1998)
    One hundred and twenty spring-calving Hereford × Angus cows grazing low-quality, tallgrass-prairie forage were fed 1.0, 1.5, 2.0, 2.5, 3.0, 4.0, 5.0, or 6.0 lb soybean meal (SBM) per head daily. SBM as a source of ...
  • Nix, D.W.; Lamb, G.C.; Traffas, V.; Corah, L.R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1998)
    Weanling Angus × Hereford heifers were purchased by a commercial heifer development operation from 12 sources. Heifers were fed a silage-based diet through an initial developmental period and then were retained or ...
  • Spire, M.F.; Galland, J.C.; Unruh, John A.; Drouillard, James S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1998)
    No statistical differences were detected in feedlot performance or carcass traits between control culled beef cows and those that were treated with melengesterol acetate (MGA®) and/or Implus-H® when fed in a feedyard ...
  • Retzlaff, D.L.; Rueger, S.A.; Phebus, Randall K.; Marsden, James L.; Kastner, Curtis L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1998)
    The use of steam pasteurization (SPS400™; Frigoscandia, Bellevue, WA) as a viable commercial-scale intervention method to treat pre-rigor beef carcasses uniformly hasbeen evaluated for temperatures from 180E to 201 ̊F. ...
