    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 ...
  • Nichols, David A.; Ames, D.R.; Allee, G.L.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-05-06)
    Fat and lean pigs were observed at temperatures of 0(32F), 5(41F), 10(50F), 15(59F), and 20C(68F). In comparing fat and lean pigs no significant differences were observed in feed-to-gain ratio or average daily gain. Pigs ...
  • Abdelgadir, I.E.O.; Morrill, J.L.; Stutts, J.A.; Morrill, B.; Johnson, D.E.; Behnke, Keith C. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2012-10-04)
    Two trials were conducted to determine the optimum conditions for processing whole soybeans for young calves. In the first trial, laboratory procedures and a nitrogen balance study were used. This information was used ...
  • Nichols, David A.; Blecha, Frank; Johnston, M.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-04-23)
    A total of 144 weaned pigs were used to evaluate the effect of reduced nighttime temperatures on pig performance. No differences were observed in average daily feed intake, daily gain, or feed efficiency regardless of ...
  • Nichols, David A.; Ames, D.R.; Hines, Robert H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-04-30)
    We used 128 barrows averaging approximately 160 lbs. and temperatures of 32, 41, 50, 59, 68, 77, 86 and 95 F to study the effects of temperature on growth and efficiency. No significant differences in performance were ...
  • 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 ...
  • Nichols, David A.; Johnston, M.; Blecha, Frank; Murphy, James P. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-04-22)
    A total of 64 pigs were used to evaluate the effect of weekly temperature reductions. No differences were observed between treatments for average daily feed intake, daily gain, or feed efficiency. Pigs exposed to cooler ...
  • 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 ...
  • Zuk, Alan J.; Bremer, Dale J.; Fry, Jack D. (2009-11-04)
    Conversion from perennial ryegrass (Lolium perenne L.) to zoysiagrass (Zoysia japonica Steud.) in the transition zone of the USA may reduce irrigation and fungicide requirements. However, environmental conditions under ...
  • 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 ...
  • Brijwani, Monika; Subramanyam, Bhadriraju; Flinn, Paul W. (2012-05-31)
    The influence of sanitation on responses of life stages of the red flour beetle, Tribolium castaneum (Herbst) (Coleoptera: Tenebrionidae), an economically important pest in flour mills, was investigated in a pilot flour ...
  • Shirley, John E.; Lagombra, G.G. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2012-10-04)
    The reproductive performance of 179 Holstein cows during the period from December 1978 through March 1984 was evaluated with respect to environmental temperature and humidity at the time of insemination. This study was ...
  • 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 ...
