    The relative contributions of fluctuating cattle performance; interest rates; and feeder cattle, fed cattle, and feed grain prices to profit variability of cattle feeding were examined in this study. Closeout data from ...
  • King, M.; Kiracofe, G.H.; McKee, R.M. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-02-08)
    With heifers given two injections of Lutalyse 11 days apart, and inseminated 80 hours after the second injection, only 20% in heat before 48 hours conceived compared with 65% that were in heat 48 to 80 hours after injection. ...

    In five trials during 1983 and 1984, 238 cows and 54 heifers were synchronized with Syncro-Mate-B® and artificially inseminated 48 hours after implant removal. The conception rate was 42.5% in cows that were cycling and ...
  • Albright, M.; Schroeder, Ted C.; Langemeier, Michael R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-10-05)
    This study examined the relative effects of corn price and cattle performance factors on steer finishing cost of gain. Seasonal analysis of cost of gain and the factors affecting it was also conducted. Using over 10 ...
  • Utter, S.D.; Houghton, P.L.; Corah, L.R.; Spire, M.F.; Higgins, James J.; Butine, M.D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-10-05)
    Data from yearling Angus and Angus crossbred beef heifers from a commercial ranch were used to identify factors affecting pregnancy rates (n=342) and calving difficulty (n=295). Production data analyzed included prebreeding ...
  • 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, 2010-09-10)
    Some ground beef patties developed an internal, brown cooked color and looked well-done at temperatures as low as 13 1EF, whereas normal patties were re d to pink. The premature brown color was not relate d to percent ...
  • Lambert, C.; Corah, L.; Grunewald, O. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 2010-12-15)
    Data were collected on 85,195 cattle sold in 15 Kansas auctions during October and November 1981. Buyers discounted sick cattle heavily, 'and discounts were heavier on sick calves than yearlings. The discount for bulls ...
  • Marston, T.T.; Wankel, L.E.; Moser, Daniel W. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-08-06)
    Many factors are considered when commercial cow/calf producers buy bulls. Breeding system needs and breeder’s preference determine which breed of bull will be purchased at a multi-breed sale. Our analysis of prices ...
  • Langemeier, Michael R.; Mintert, J.; Schroeder, Ted C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-10-14)
    This study examined the relative importance of price and animal performance factors on cattle finishing profitability. Using data from a single feedlot, sale prices, feeder prices, and corn prices explained 90 to 95% ...
  • Yancey, E.J.; Dikeman, Michael E.; Hachmeister, K.A.; Chambers, Edgar, IV; Milliken, George A.; Dressler, E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-08-04)
    The infraspinatus muscle (top blade) from the chuck clod, the gluteus medius muscle (top sirloin) from the sirloin, and the psoas major muscle (tenderloin) from the loin were obtained from 140 A- and B-maturity ...
  • Utter, S.D.; Houghton, P.L.; Corah, L.R.; Simms, D.D.; Spire, M.F.; Butine, M.D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-09-17)
    Commercial beef heifers (n=1863) from 16 different sources were used to evaluate the influence of management practices and biological traits on first-service conception and overall pregnancy rates. Frame score, initial ...
  • Blum, J.K.; Schalles, R.R.; Zoellner, K.O. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-03-04)
    Steers entering feedlots with higher starting weight per day of age had greater net value a t slaughter than lighter steers. Faster gaining steers brought the highest net income. Age on feed did not influence net income. ...
  • Schalles, R.R.; Zoellner, K.O.; Long, K. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-02-18)
    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 ...
  • O'Banion, D.S.; Zoellner, K.O.; Schalles, R.R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-02-18)
    Pre-test management was studied on 351 bulls from 54 herds that were tested at the Kansas Bull Test Station at Beloit, Kansas. Charolais, Hereford, Polled Hereford, and Simmental bulls were sick more days than Angus or ...
  • Stevenson, Jeffrey S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-08-23)
    Body condition, parity, and days postpartum at the onset of the breeding season determine the proportion of cows that initiated first postpartum ovarian activity and ovulated before the start of the breeding season. Hormonal ...
