  • Houghton, P.L.; Simms, D.D.; Higgins, James J. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-11-02)
    Long yearling steers (n=997) of various biological types from two origins were used to test performance and carcass trait uniformity of unsorted cattle, visually sorted cattle, and cattle sorted by ultrasound and hip ...
  • Perry, R.C.; Corah, L.R.; Beal, W.E.; Kiracofe, G.H.; Cochran, R.C.; Simms, D.D.; Brethour, J.R.; Stevenson, Jeffrey S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-11-02)
    Twenty-eight Hereford x Angus cows were utilized to determine the effects of dietary energy level before and after calving on reproductive function and production in suckled beef cows. Low levels of dietary energy before ...
  • Lamb, G.C.; Miller, B.L.; Traffas, V.; Corah, L.R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-09-02)
    In April, 1996, 1501 yearling crossbred heifers located on seven different ranches were estrus-synchronized and artificially inseminated (AI) 12 hours after they were detected in estrus. Herd size ranged from 82 to 43 ...
  • Pacheco, L.A.; Jaeger, John R.; Bormann, Jennifer; Olson, K. C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2011-03-30)
    Ultrasound is widely used in seed stock production, commercial operations, and in feed yards to predict carcass merit. It also has been used to assess the value of individuals as parents in the seed stock industry. ...
  • Keenan, L.D.; Moser, Daniel W.; Eborn, D.R.; Marston, T.T. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-08-04)
    Approximately 280 Simmental- and Hereford- sired feedlot steers were ultrasonically evaluated for intramuscular fat deposition using CPEC and Critical Vision, Inc. (CVI) ultrasound systems. Warner-Bratzler shear force ...
  • Garmyn, A.; Moser, Daniel W. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-01-22)
    Feedlot managers often market entire pens as mixed groups, resulting in lower-quality, over-finished, or heavyweight carcasses. As the cattle industry has moved towards valuebased marketing systems, finding a costeffective ...
  • Lawrence, S.J.; Kreider, S.E.; Higgins, James J.; Allen, L.; Epp, M.P.; Ritter, P.; Blasi, Dale A.; Dikeman, Michael E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2013-03-19)
    The majority of cattle fed in commercial feedlots are processed and placed into pens without sorting into groups of uniform size and body condition. As a result of the variability in weight and condition, this management ...
  • Schalles, R.R.; Glaze, J.B.; Mallen-Spinzi, R.; Andries, K.M.; Rost, C.J.; Johnson, M.Z.; Olson, W.; Dikeman, Michael E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-10-05)
    Ultrasound-measured ribeye area (REA) expected progeny differences (EPD) were calculated for 2974 Brangus cattle. Carcass data were collected from 168 steer progeny sired by eight bulls with ultrasound-measured ribeye ...
  • Waldner, D.N.; Schalles, R.R.; Olson, W.; Houghton, P.; Corah, L.R.; Dikeman, Michael E.; Unruh, John A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-10-15)
    Sixty Brangus bulls were evaluated live with two real-time ultrasound instruments to estimate ribeye area (REA) and 12th rib fat thickness (FT) every 4 mo beginning at 4 mo and 12 mo of age, respectively, and continuing ...
