    The objective of this project was to study the effects on pregnancy rates of inseminating estrus-synchronize d heifers either at observed estrus or at a fixed time. In April, 1994, 574 yearling crossbred heifers, located ...
  • Hoffman, D.P.; Krehbiel, C.L.; McKee, R.M.; Stevenson, Jeffrey S.; Nichols, David A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1995)
    One disadvantage of most estrous synchronization programs is their inability to induce cycling in prepubertal heifers and anestrous suckled beef cows. Suckled cows and virgin heifers were treated with PG F2", ...
  • Hunt, Melvin C.; Warren, K.E.; Kropf, Donald H.; Hague, M.A.; Waldner, C.L.; Stroda, Sally L.; Kastner, Curtis L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1995)
    Some ground beef patties developed an internal, brown cooked color and looked well-done at temperatures as low as 131 ̊F, whereas normal patties were re d to pink. The premature brown color was not relate d to percent ...

E.; Kastner, Curtis L.; Fung, Daniel Y. C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1995)
    The meat industry and Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) strive to minimize carcass contamination during slaughter and subsequent processing. Because microbial contamination during slaughter cannot be avoided ...
  • Cochran, R.C.; Towne, G.; Olson, K. C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1995)
    A 16-band multispectral radiometer (MSR) was used to measure the amount of forage biomass present on several dates in native tallgrass prairie pastures during the 1992 to 1994 growing seasons. Reflectance data ...
