  • Fairbanks, G.E.; Hoover, J.D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-03-04)
    Two types of big round balers and a small stackmaker were used to harvest grain sorghum stubble after the grain was harvested during the fall and winter months of 1975. The stubble was about 21 inches high and about 4 ...
  • Obuz, E.; Yancey, E.J.; Lawrence, T.E.; King, D.A.; Dikeman, Michael E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-08-06)
    We used an electric belt grill, a forced air convection oven, and an electric broiler to cook steaks from three beef muscles; outside round (biceps femoris), loin strip (longissimus lumborum) and eye round (semitendi ...
  • Keay, L.E.; Kiracofe, G.; Odde, Kenneth G.; Stevenson, Jeffrey S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 2010-12-15)
    One-hundred eighteen heifers were used to determine the effectiveness of Alfaprostol as a heat synchronization agent. Seventy-nine were injected twice (12 days apart) with 6 mg Alfaprostol per head and 39 were not treated. ...
  • Bradford, Heather L.; Moser, Daniel W.; Bormann, Jennifer M.; Weaber, Robert L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2014-05-16)
    Reproductive failure is consistently a top reason for culling beef cows from the herd. Culling young females is very costly to commercial producers because a young female hasn’t generated enough income to pay for the ...
  • Eborn, D.R.; Spiker, C.R.; Sullivan, R.R.; Grieger, David M. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2009-12-07)
    Two aims of heifer estrus synchronization protocols are to induce prepubertal heifers to start cycling by the beginning of the breeding season and to shorten time spent in estrous detection. Use of progestins such as ...
  • Minick Bormann, J.; Moser, Daniel W.; Marston, T.T. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2009-12-14)
    Feed is one of the largest costs in a cow/calf or feedlot operation. However, very little data is available to aid producers in genetically improving their herd for feed efficiency. In Australia, bull tests record individual ...
  • Glaze, J.B.; Schalles, R.R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-10-05)
    Performance data from a Polled Hereford herd selected for feed conversion were used in the calculation of heritabilities and genetic correlations for birth weight (BWT), weaning weight (WWT), and yearling weight ...
  • Glaze, J.B.; Schalles, R.R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-09-17)
    Performance data from a Polled Hereford herd selected for feed conversion were used in the calculation of heritabilities and genetic correlations for birth weight (BWT), weaning weight (WWT), and yearling weight ...
  • Johnson, M.Z.; Schalles, R.R.; Olson, W.; Dikeman, Michael E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-10-15)
    Heritabilities and genetic correlations for ultrasound-measured ribeye area and fat thickness, as well as growth traits and scrotal circumference, were determined using performance records of 1613 Brangus calves ...
  • Minick, J.A.; Pollak, E.J.; Wilson, D.E.; Dressler, E.W.; Dikeman, Michael E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-08-04)
    The objective of this study was to estimate heritabilities and genetic correlations for Warner- Bratzler shear force and marbling score of longissimus steaks from Angus-, Charolais-, Hereford-, and Simmental-sired cattle ...
  • Kriese, L.A.; Schalles, R.R.; Lomas, Lyle W. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-12-03)
    Heterosis estimates were determined for gestation length, birth weight, and yearling weight using a two-breed rotational crossbreeding system with Angus and Simmental cattle. Heterosis for gestation length was -.3%; birth ...
  • Luchsinger, S.E.; Hunt, Melvin C.; Kropf, Donald H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-09-02)
    To determine the effects of storage in a high-carbon dioxide, modified-atmosphere package (MAP) on shelf life, beef strip steaks were packaged under 30% CO2-70% N2 and stored for up to 42 days at 30 or 38 ̊F. ...
  • Heidker, J.; Bolsen, K.; Hinds, M.; Ilg, H.; Janicki, B.; Young, B. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-12-10)
    High moisture corn harvested at 18 and 26% moisture, rolled, treated with 0, .75, 1.5, or 2.25% urea (DM basis), and ensiled was evaluated for fermentation rate, chemical composition, and aerobic stability. Adding urea ...
  • Young, B.; Smith, R.; Bolsen, K.; Ilg, H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-12-14)
    Dry rolled corn, ensiled high moisture corn, and high moisture corn that was rolled and ensiled with urea or left whole and ensiled with urea were compared in two cattle trials. Dry corn gave the poorest cattle performance; ...
  • Bolsen, K.; Ilg, H.; Riley, Jack G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-02-18)
    W used 135 yearling steers in two trials to compare dry with high moisture (HM) corn and soybean meal (SBM) supplement with urea supplement. Results of trail 1 (88 days) show HM corn either rolled or ensiled in a stave ...
  • Broce, A.B.; Gordon, C.M.; Sindt, J.J.; Depenbusch, Brandon E.; Drouillard, James S.; Phebus, Randall K. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-08-04)
    Tempered and non-tempered steam-flaked corn samples along with total mixed rations containing either tempered or non-tempered steam-flaked corn were exposed to flies and the environment for 21 hours. Exposure to flies ...
  • Smith, E.F.; Richardson, D.; Drake, C.L.; Brent, B.E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-03-17)
    Trials at several research centers as well as in Kansas (Bulletin 483, page 32) have shown roughage may be satisfactorily omitted from finishing rations for cattle and doing so, often reduces feed required per pound of ...
  • Uwituze, S.; Parsons, G.L.; Karges, K.K.; Gibson, M.L.; Hollis, Larry C.; Drouillard, James S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2011-03-30)
    Requirements for elemental sulfur in feedlot diets have been established to be approximately 0.15% with a maximum upper threshold of 0.40% of diet dry matter. Feeding ethanol fermentation by-products, such as distillers ...
  • Uwituze, S.; Parsons, G.L.; Schneider, C.J.; Karges, K.K.; Gibson, M.L.; Hollis, Larry C.; Drouillard, James S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2011-03-30)
    Distillers grains with solubles are becoming an increasingly important staple of cattle diets because of rapid expansion of the fuel ethanol industry. Sulfuric acid often is used in ethanol production processes to clean ...
