  • 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 ...

  • 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. ...
  • Peters, P.E.; Gamage, S.D.; Luchansky, J.B.; Phebus, Randall K. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1998)
    Ten pound chubs of coarsely ground beef of two different lean:fat specifications (73:27 and 81:19) were stored at three temperatures (34, 38 or 45 ̊F) to monitor the effects of storage temperature on microbial condition ...
  • Lamb, G.C.; Thompson, K. E.; Heldt, J.S.; Löest, C.A.; Stevenson, Jeffrey S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1998)
    Three treatments were initiated at approximately 15 days after calving and continued for 4 weeks: 1) cows were suckled ad libitum by their calves (calf present [CP]); 2) calves were present but nonsuckling 24 hr/day and ...
  • Flake, A.S.; Kuhl, G.L.; Drouillard, James S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1998)
    Seventy-two yearling crossbred steers were used in an individual feeding trial to evaluate the effects of adding a molasses-fat blend (Synergy® 19/14; Cargill Molasses Liquid Products) to diets at 6 or 12% (dry ...
  • Bandyk, C.A.; Cochran, R.C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1998)
