  • Kastner, Curtis L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1980)
    It has been known for years that electrical stimulation will improve tenderness of meat, but the technique only recently has gained considerable interest in the meat industry. Benjamin Franklin in 1749 observed that ...
  • Bolsen, K.; Ilg, H.; Riley, Jack G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1980)
    Four corn silages (41 to 46% DM) were made August 23 to 26, 1978; treatments were: 1) no additive (control), 2) 8.16 lbs of Cold-flo ammonia per ton, 3) 1.0 lb of Sila-bac per ton, and 4) 1.0 lb of Silo-Best per ton. ...
  • Busby, W.D.; McKee, M.; Corah, L.R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1980)
    Analysis of breeding records for 128 percentage Simmental females either weaned early (average age 63 days) or conventionally (average age 194 days) showed no statistically significant difference between early-weaned and ...
  • Corah, L.R.; Brazle, F.; Dawes, J.D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1980)
    We assigned 110 cull beef cows of mixed breeding to a control group and a group implanted with 36 mg Ralgro. Ralgro implants improved gains 12.8 lbs (11.2%) over a 59-day grazing period.
  • Corah, L.; Sprott, L.R.; Francis, G.; Kiracofe, G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1980)
    Implanting heifers at weaning time with 12, 24, or 36 mg of Ralgro did not affect reproductive performance of the heifers when bred as yearlings.
  • Corah, L.R.; Plegge, S.D.; Francis, G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1980)
    Implanting at an alternate location (in the muscle or fat pad at the base of the ear) or crushing the pellets did not appear to cause side effects or adversely affect animal performance. However, implanting at the ...
  • Sprott, L.R.; Kiracofe, G.H.; Corah, L.R.; Riley, Jack G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1980)
    Rumensin increased the number of heifers cycling at 394 days of age and tended to decrease the weight at puberty, with no effect on conception or pregnancy. Rumensin also increased average daily gain, total weight change, ...
  • Bolsen, K.; Ilg, H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1980)
    Four alfalfa silages (34 to 37% DM) were made May 30 and 31, 1979, as follows: 1) no additive (control), 2) 3 ounces of Ensila Plus per ton, 3) 1.0 lb of Si1a-1ator per ton, and 4) 1.5 1b of Silo-Guard per ton. Silos were ...
  • Schalles, R.R.; Zoellner, K.O.; Long, K. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1980)
    Calves that gained rapidly before going into the feedlot continued to gain rapidly on feed and were more profitable to both the cow-calf operator and the feeder. When fed to their genetic potential, large frame, heavy, young ...
  • Axe, D.; Ilg, H.; Bolsen, K.; Behnke, Keith C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1980)
    Two finishing trials with heifers and steers were conducted to determine the value of grain dust (GD) to replace cracked corn and to compare soybean meal and urea as protein supplements. Results of the 104-day heifer ...
  • Hayes, D.; Corah, L.; Bartley, E.E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1980)
    Data collected from six producers grazing 4050 head of cattle on 850 acres of irrigated alfalfa showed that under optimum conditions, Kansas producers can expect: stocking rate, 5 to 6 head/acre; average daily gain, 2 ...
  • Hunt, Melvin C.; Kendall, J.L.A.; Kropf, Donald H.; Dikeman, Michael E.; Kastner, Curtis L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1980)
    Ground beef from electrically stimulated and/or pre-rigor processed carcasses was equivalent to conventional ground beef in texture, palatability, and frozen storage stability, but lost more juice when vacuum-stored, had ...
  • Lee, C.Y.; Kastner, Curtis L.; Dikeman, Michael E.; Hunt, Melvin C.; Kropf, Donald H.; Lyon, M.; Fung, Daniel Y. C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1980)
    To help insure that hot-processed beef has an acceptable shelf life and is microbiologically safe, the microbial characteristics of the product must be evaluated. This is particularly true for hot-processed cuts that are ...
  • Peischel, A.; Schalles, R.R.; Owensby, Clenton E.; Smith, E.F. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1980)
    Adequate milk production by the cow to promote fast gain by her calf the first three months is important for heavy weaning weights. Calves consume considerable range forage by three months of age, and milk consumption begins ...
  • Dennis, S.M.; Avery, T.B.; Bartley, E.E.; Galitzer, S.J.; Nagaraja, T. G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1980)
    Lasalocid or Rumensin (monensin) protected cattle gorged with grain from lactic acidosis. Both lasalocid and monensin prevented the decrease in rumen and blood pH and increase in rumen and blood lactic acid (0(-) isomer) ...
  • Pruitt, R.J.; Peischel, H.A.; Smith, E.F.; Schalles, R.R.; Owensby, Clenton E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1980)
    Polled Hereford cows on native Flint Hills pasture not supplemented until February lost more weight from November to February and were in poorer condition during the winter and early spring than cows supplemented ...
  • Busby, W.D.; Corah, L.R.; McKee, M.; Fink, G.; Pope, Ronald V. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1980)
    Seventy-six Polled Hereford and percentage Simmental calves were used to evaluate Rumensin and drylot vs. pasture systems by average daily gain of early-weaned (54 day old) calves. Rumensin was fed at 10 g/ton of feed for ...
  • Bolsen, K.; Ilg, H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1980)
    Six commercial silage additives were evaluated in five trials with corn, forage sorghum, and alfalfa. In general, each additive improved the silage in at least one of four criteria we used for the comparisons: ...
  • Bolsen, K.; Riley, Jack G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1980)
    Two corn silages (37 to 38% DM) were made September 2 and 3, 1975; one was ensiled without additive (control), the other with Silo-Best added at 1.0 lb. per ton of fresh crop. Silos were opened after 36 days, and ...
  • Bolsen, K.; Ilg, H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1980)
    Two corn silages (34 to 36% DM) were made August 4 and 5, 1976; one was ensiled without additive (control), the other with Silo-Guard added at 1.5 lbs. per ton of fresh crop. Silos were opened after 68 days, and each ...
