  • Thompson, K. E.; Lamb, G.C.; Marple, T.J.; Corah, L.R.; McKee, R.M.; Stevenson, Jeffrey S.; Grieger, David M.; Nichols, David A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1997)
    At the KSU Purebred Unit, 164 purebred Angus, Hereford, and Simmental cows were used to test a new estrus-synchronization program using GnRH, PGF2, and norgestomet. Cows were inseminated after detected estrus, or in ...
  • Luchsinger, S.E.; Hunt, Melvin C.; Kropf, Donald H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1997)
    To determine the effects of storage in a high-carbon dioxide, modified-atmosphere package (MAP) on shelf life, beef strip steaks were packaged under 30% CO2-70% N2 and stored for up to 42 days at 30 or 38 ̊F. ...
  • Fankhauser, T.R.; Kuhl, G.L.; Simms, D.D.; Stokka, Gerald L.; Drouillard, James S.; Blasi, Dale A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1997)
    In an 84-day pasture/132-day finishing study using 480 crossbred steers (675 lb), Ralgro® increased (P<.05) pasture gains 9.3% compared to nonimplanted controls. Gains of Synovex-S®-implanted steers were intermediate. Pasture ...
  • Estrada-Munoz, R.; Boyle, Elizabeth A. E.; Marsden, James L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1997)
    Liquid smoke (LS) reduce d Escherichia coli O157:H7 counts in inoculated beef trimmings and ground beef patties. The counts were reduced (P<.05) by .5 log 10 cfu/g immediately after beef trimmings were treated with 8% LS ...
  • Lamb, G.C.; Lynch, J.M.; Miller, B.L.; Grieger, David M.; Stevenson, Jeffrey S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1997)
    Six treatment s were initiated approximately 15 days after calving: 1) calf was weaned permanently from its dam (calf weaned; CW); 2) calf was present continuously with its dam but contact with the udder was prohibited ...
  • Forbes, W.L.; Corah, L.R.; Thompson, K. E.; Lamb, G.C.; Grieger, David M.; Stevenson, Jeffrey S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1997)
    We used four herds at three Kansas ranches to evaluate the potential of two new estrus synchronization strategies to increase estrus expression and fertility of 911 crossbred suckled beef cows. The treatments included: ...
  • Wessels, R.H.; Titgemeyer, Evan C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1997)
    Seven steers (513 lb) were used in an experiment to investigate optimal levels and sources of protein in diets limit-fed to allow gain of 2.2 lb/day. Treatments were: a negative-control diet (urea; supplemented, 11.7% ...
