    Various percentages (1.2% to 13%) of β- cyclodextrin (β–CD) were added to water or pasteurized whole milk to study β-CD crystallization patterns. Influential factors such as crystallization time (4 to 12 h), ...
  • Reinhardt, Christopher D.; Thomson, Daniel U.; Retzlaff, Deanna D.; Butler, Brooks; Valles, J. A. (2012-07-23)
    Two studies were conducted to determine the effectiveness of digital multimedia modules as training tools for animal care workers. Employees at a commercial feedlot (n = 17) and a commercial dairy (n = 10) were asked to ...

    Connective tissue, from the outside of three major chuck muscles, was evaluated for binding properties when incorporated either raw or following preheating into precooked, restructured beef. Food-grade gelatin was ...
  • Kenney, P.B.; Kropf, Donald H.; Kastner, Curtis L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-10-15)
    Five percent fish surimi, unwashed or washed ground beef, and washed or unwashed beef hearts were evaluated in precooked, chunked and formed, restructured beef roasts to determine if they would increase bind in ...
  • Pfromm, Peter H.; Amanor-Boadu, Vincent; Nelson, Richard; Vadlani, Praveen V.; Madl, Ronald L. (2010-02-05)
    Fermentation-derived butanol is a possible alternative to ethanol as a fungible biomass-based liquid transportation fuel. We compare the fermentation-based production of n-butanol vs. ethanol from corn or switchgrass ...
  • Santharam, S.; Davis, Lawrence C.; Erickson, Larry E. (2014-06-24)
    Remediation feasibility studies were conducted in simulated groundwater flow channels for carbon tetrachloride (CT). CT was introduced at a concentration of about 2 mg/L (~13 μmoles/L) in three channels, two of them with ...
  • Zhang, Meng; Song, Xiaoxu; Deines, Timothy W.; Pei, Zhijian J.; Wang, Donghai (2012-07-27)
    Size reduction is the first step for manufacturing biofuels from woody biomass. It is usually performed using milling machines and the particle size is controlled by the size of the sieve installed on a milling machine. ...
  • Dikeman, Michael E.; Melton, C.C.; Tuma, H.J.; Beecher, G.R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-03-17)
    Because tenderness is considered the most desired eating characteristic in meat, more emphasis should be placed on this trait in evaluating beef quality in breeding and selection programs. Both tenderness and marbling ...
  • Hutchinson, Stacy L.; Daniel, M.J.; Higgins, James J.; Unruh, John A.; Hunt, Melvin C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2009-12-09)
    Cow meat is tougher than meat from young steers and heifers and typically has a less desirable, darker color. It is generally assumed that cow meat will need to be ground or have some form of post-mortem tenderization ...
  • Warren, K.E.; Hunt, Melvin C.; Marksberry, C.L.; Sorheim, O.; Kropf, Donald H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-04-15)
    Modified atmosphere packaging with 100% carbon dioxide was used to investigate changes in daily gas composition, as well as the influence of fat trim level and location of loin in the box on shelf life characteristics. ...
  • Andries, K.M.; Schalles, R.R.; Franke, D.E.; Dikeman, Michael E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-09-10)
    Carcass data from 5 years of a long-term, rotational , crossbreeding project were used to calculate heritabilities, genetic and phenotypic correlations , and management effects and to compare breeds for marbling, ribeye ...
  • Hickok, D.T.; Schalles, R.R.; Franke, D.E.; Dikeman, Michael E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-10-20)
    Eighty nine steers with different proportions of Angus, Hereford, Charolais, Brahman, and Gelbvieh breeding from rotational and terminal crossbreeding systems were produced in Louisiana and finished at KSU. Half of ...
  • Gregory, K.E.; Cundiff, L.V.; Koch, R.M.; Koohmaraie, M.; Dikeman, Michael E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-10-05)
    Retained heterosis for growth, carcass, and meat traits was estimated in F3 generation steer progeny in three composite populations finished on two levels of dietary energy density (2.82 MCal ME and 3.07 MCal ME, and 11.5 ...
  • Robinson, Jessica; Brase, Gary; Griswold, Wendy M.; Jackson, Chad A.; Erickson, Larry E. (2015-04-23)
    Electric power must become less dependent on fossil fuels and transportation must become more electric to decrease carbon emissions and mitigate climate change. Increasing availability and accessibility of charging stations ...
  • Harmon, D.L.; Nagaraja, Tiruvoor G. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2012-10-04)
