    Tenderness is one of the most important factors affecting consumers’ perceptions and acceptance of palatability. Tenderness is affected by both myofibrillar proteins and connective tissue content and quality. Both marbling ...
  • Gaschler, A.; Dikeman, Michael E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2012-04-03)
    Combined microwave and convection cooking has gained popularity in the last 20 years because of more accurate heat control and more efficient use of energy. Combination microwave/convection cooking allows for more rapid ...
  • Ames, D.R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-03-04)
    Nutrient requirements for domestic animals (NRC) published by the National Research Council are the best estimates available. For beef cattle, specific tables are listed for animals of different weights and for various ...
  • Laytimi, A.; Bolsen, K.; Janicki, B. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-12-14)
    Replicate, covered wheat straw (WS) stacks were treated with 1.5 or 3.0% anhydrous ammonia in three environmental chambers at 37, 68, or 95 F, for 23 days. Then digestibility was measured (wethers). Rations were 88% wheat ...
  • Murphy, P.; Pope, Ronald V.; Nichols, David A.; Riley, Jack G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-12-10)
    When average outside air temperature was about 40 F, water temperatures of 40, 60, Of' 80 F had little effect on water intakes of yearling steers and heifers. In addition, there were no significant differences in average ...
  • Mark, D.R.; Schroeder, Ted C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-08-06)
    The effect of several weather conditions on average daily gain (ADG) and profits is quantified for typical steers and heifers fed in commercial feedyards in Western Kansas from 1980 to 1999. ADG predictions for particular ...
  • Bolsen, K.; Ilg, H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-02-18)
    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 ...
  • Baumann, Nicholas W.; West, A.; Phebus, Randall K. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2014-06-06)
    One of the key issues involved in accurately testing beef and the environment for the presence of specific bacteria, particularly pathogens such as Shiga toxin-producing Escherichia coli (STEC), is maintaining the viability ...
  • Steele, K.S.; Weber, M.J.; Boyle, Elizabeth A. E.; Lobaton-Sulabo, A.S.; Cundith, C.; Hiebert, Y.H.; Abrolat, K.A.; Attey, J.M.; Clark, S.D.; Johnson, D.; Roenbaugh, T.L.; Hunt, Melvin C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2012-04-03)
    Consumers are not able to estimate tenderness, juiciness, or flavor when selecting beef cuts at retail stores. Instead, they rely on color as one of the major criteria to select beef cuts. During refrigerated display, ...
  • Leising, J.; Tuma, H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-03-11)
    Meat shrinkage is a major problem for the beef industry. Shrinkage (loss in weight) results from many factors: improper chilling, low humidity, not packaging, poor sanitation, or excessive ageing time. Most beef is chilled ...
  • Ames, D.R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-02-18)
    Adjusting feedlot rations to match the thermal environment can reduce costs of gains. Adjusting protein content of rations does not change average daily gain but it improves protein efficiency.
  • Bolsen, K.; Ilg, H.; Hinds, M. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-12-14)
    Silo-Best lowered the ensiling temperature and increased the dry matter recovered from the silo by over 5 percentage units (82.3 vs. 77.3%). Calves fed the control silage gained faster and consumed more feed, but those fed ...
  • McKee, M.; Kimple, K.; Ames, D.R.; Willms, C.L.; Corah, L.R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-02-18)
    Cows in mid-to-late gestation gained weight when fed either milo stover silage or alfalfa hay-wheat straw but lost weight when the forage source was milo-stover bales. When supplemented with additional corn grain as ...
  • Lawrence, T.E.; King, D.A.; Dikeman, Michael E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-08-06)
    We evaluated the temperature variation of an electric belt grill set at four temperatures, a forced-air convection oven set at three temperatures, and an electric broiler that has no temperature control. After finding that ...
  • Dean Bark, L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-12-14)
    The 1983 weather in Kansas upset carefully laid plans and confounded the best management techniques. Yet the averages for 1982 and 1983 appear very similar. In Manhattan, the average temperatures were 54.04 F for 1982 and ...
