    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), ...
  • Harbers, L.H.; Ward, G.M.; Dayton, A.D. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1984)
    The availability of oxalate and non-oxalate calcium in alfalfa was determined using a chick assay. Oxalate-bound calcium was found to contribute only 16% as much influence as nonoxalate calcium. The nonoxalate calcium ...

    Twelve mature sheep were used as a ruminant model to estimate the bioavailability of lysine in hydroxymethyl lysine (HML) compared with a commercial product of rumen-protected lysine (RPL; LysiPEARL, Kemin Industries, ...
  • Stokka, Gerald L.; Falkner, Thomas R.; Bierman, Patrick (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1997)
    Three strategies exist to control unwanted disease in a livestock operation: 1) prevent the douintroduction of infected cattle, 2) raise the overall level of resistance and specific resistance to infectious disease, and ...
  • Shirley, John E. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1993)
    Body condition scoring provides a tool to help the dairy herd manager evaluate his/her nutrition and management program. It takes time, has an associated cost, and will result in a positive economic return if one makes ...
  • Reddy, P.G.; Blecha, Frank; Morrill, J.L.; Minocha, H.C. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1988)
    Twenty-five calves were allotted to five groups: controls that did not receive bovine recombinant interleukin-2 (rIL-2) and four groups that received 5 daily injections of rIL-2 at 11.4, 1.1,0.11, or 0.0 II µg/lb/day. ...
  • Harmon, D.L.; Nagaraja, T. G. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1986)
    The ruminant animal has the unique advantage of microbial digestion in the rumen. This relationship between host animal and microbial population presents some unique advantages and disadvantages to the animal in terms ...
  • Elliott, B.D.; Langemeier, Michael R.; Featherstone, Allen M. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1995)
    Net cash flow measures the amount of cash remaining after all cash expense obligations are satisfied. This cash is available for additional farm investment, off-farm investment, family living, and additional debt ...
  • Jeon, I.J. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1988)
    One of the common and important off-flavors in milk is hydrolytic rancidity or lipolyzed flavor. The rancidity results from hydrolytic cleavage of fatty acids from milk fat by the enzyme lipase and their release as free ...
  • Heikes, K. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1989)
    The July 1989 USDA Sire Summary introduced a new system for genetic evaluations in dairy cattle. These evaluations, known as the Animal Model (AM), include several new features that help to increase the accuracy of ...

    Four-ruminally fistulated, multiparous, pregnant Holstein cows were studied to characterize ruminal adaptations during the transition from gestation to lactation. Cows were fed typical far-off and close-up diets, a late ...
  • Park, A.F.; Titgemeyer, Evan C.; Cochran, R.C.; DeFrain, J.M.; Ferdinand, E.E.; Wallace, N.; Nagaraja, T. G.; Johnson, D.E.; Shirley, John E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2002)
    We used four ruminally fistulated, multiparous, pregnant Holstein cows to delineate microbial adaptations in dairy cows as they experienced the transition from one lactation to the next. Diets consisted of typical ...
  • Herald, T. J.; Schmidt, Karen A. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1999)
    The change in textural quality of cheese during frozen storage is of concern to the frozen food industry. Many food products such as frozen pizza and dinner entrees are stored at !0.5EF or below for extended periods ...
