  • Cox, I.; Dingeldein, H.; Schmidt, Karen A. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2011-08-02)
    Milk processing plants are becoming fewer in number and larger in size. As a result, the distance the raw milk is transported from the point of production to the processing site increases. Because the major component ...

    Nonpoint source pollution from agricultural areas has been recognized as a major contributor of surface and groundwater quality problems. Sediments, pesticide and nutrient runoffs, and microbial pathogens from farmlands ...
  • Stevenson, Jeffrey S. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2011-08-02)
    Using the Ovsynch protocol to prepare cows for re-insemination proved to be very effective. Its use guarantees that all cows found open at pregnancy diagnosis are reinseminated promptly within 10 days, and the average ...
  • Marston, T.T.; Kreikemeier, K.K.; Wankel, L.E.; Huck, G.L.; Wistuba, T.J. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-08-23)
    Arsoy™ Soybean Feed is a by-product from the manufacture of soy protein isolate. It contains nearly 30% crude protein, but there is little documentation about its feeding value. Therefore, we fed basal growing diets ...
  • Sargeant, J. M.; Pulkrabek, B. J.; Scheffel, Michael V.; Park, A. F.; Shirley, John E. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2011-07-22)
    The dynamics of somatic cell counts during the first 10 days in milk were compared among udder quarters of cows with intra-mammary infection at the time of calving and those with no infection present. The study group ...
  • Waylan, A.T.; Campbell, R.E.; Unruh, John A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-08-23)
    Thirty beef carcasses were used to test the accuracy of three regression equations to predict ribeye area (REA) and to compare several strategies to rapidly estimate REAs. Linear measurements, USDA grids, and Video ...
  • Lamb, G.C.; Cartmill, J.A.; Hensley, B.A.; El-Zarkouny, S.; Heldt, J.S.; Marple, T.J.; Stevenson, Jeffrey S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-08-23)
    The Select Synch protocol (GnRH at day - 7, PGF2 at day 0, AI at detected heat) was compared to protocols using either MGA + prostaglandin (Colorado system) or two injections of prostaglandin to synchronize estrus ...
  • El-Zarkouny, S. Z.; Cartmill, J. A.; Stevenson, Jeffrey S. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2011-08-02)
    Administering progesterone to lactating dairy cows has sometimes proven effective in increasing pregnancy rates. In this study, cows were treated with the Ovsynch protocol in addition to supplemental progesterone given ...
  • Schoenholz, C.K.; Hunter, R.D.; Nutsch, T.A.; Drouillard, James S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-08-23)
    Eighty Angus × Hereford cross steers were used in an individual feeding study to compare soybean molasses (a by-product of soybean meal manufacture) and soybean meal as ingredients in finishing diets containing flaked ...
  • Graff, J.L.; Schroeder, Ted C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-08-23)
    Price variability among carcasses increases with a change from live-weight to dressedweight to grid pricing. Grid pricing has the largest price variability, because the price for each carcass is influenced by all of ...
  • Glaze, J.B. Jr.; Schalles, R.R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-08-23)
    Direct and correlated responses to selection for improved feed conversion were estimated from performance records of 1459 Polled Hereford cattle born from the spring of 1967 through the spring of 1979. Data were ...
  • Schemm, T.J.; DeBey, B.M.; Nagaraja, Tiruvoor G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-08-23)
    Sarcina-like bacteria, possibly Sarcina ventriculi, have been seen upon histopathologic examination of the abomasums of calves that died of abomasal bloat. The ability of the organism to grow at a low pH and produce large ...
  • Blake, Kevin S. (2010-07-20)
    Mount Taylor, a composite volcano in western New Mexico on the southeastern portion of the Colorado Plateau, is a signature landmark central to community identity. The seasonally snow-capped summit (elevation 11,301 ...
  • Murphy, James P.; Harner, Joseph P. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-08-23)
    As the demand grows for cleaner water, feedlots will need to reduce and control the nutrient and sediment loading of runoff. Existing confined feedlots will need to evaluate their runoff potential. Costs of controlling ...
  • Löest, C.A.; Greenwood, R.H.; Titgemeyer, Evan C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-08-23)
    Holstein steers were used in two 5 × 5 Latin square experiments to evaluate the sparing of methionine by alternative sources of methyl groups (betaine or choline). Steers were housed in metabolism crates and limit fed ...
