  • Waggoner, Justin W.; Reid, R.; Oleen, Brandon E.; Hollenbeck, William R.; Holthaus, Jody G.; Sexten, A.; Petersilie, J.; Weaber, Robert L.; Johnson, S.; Blasi, Dale A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2014-05-16)
    Many tons of crop residues and other low-quality forages are produced in Kansas each year. Use of these forages often is limited by their low nutrient content and poor digestibility. The process of applying anhydrous ...

    Insemination of beef cows at a predetermined time is a management tool to reduce labor costs associated with conventional heat detection available to cattle producers. Multiple research trials have examined the timing ...
  • Alvarado-Gilis, Christian A.; Van Bibber-Krueger, Cadra L.; Miller, K. A.; San Vito, E.; Feltrin, G.; Klamfoth, D.; Drouillard, James S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2014-06-03)
    Omega-3 fatty acids are essential nutrients for humans, but American diets are often deficient in these important long-chain fats. Incorporating greater proportions of omega-3 fatty acids into beef offers a means of ...
  • 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)
    Udder quality is an important factor related to cow longevity and calf performance. Cows with tighter udder suspension and smaller teats tend to have greater longevity. When cows stay in the herd longer, fewer replacement ...
  • Bates, Kerri E.; Weaber, Robert L.; Bormann, Jennifer M.; Moser, Daniel W.; Salak-Johnson, J. L.; Chase, C. C. L.; Peel, R. K.; Van Campen, H.; Loneragan, G. H.; Wagner, J. J.; Bodhireddy, P.; Prayaga, K.; Enns, R. M. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2014-05-16)
    Cattle producers historically have selected for docile temperaments simply for management convenience because calmer animals are conducive to safe environments for their peers as well as their handlers. As many producers ...
  • Garner, C. M.; Unruh, John A.; Hunt, Melvin C.; Boyle, Elizabeth A. E.; Houser, Terry A.; Stroda, Sally L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2014-06-03)
    Subprimals can be stored in a vacuum package for extended periods of time at low storage temperatures. The number of days that subprimals may be held before processing can be influenced by the distribution chain, ...
  • White, Kari L.; Bormann, Jennifer M.; Olson, K. C.; Jaeger, John R.; Johnson, Sandra K.; Downey, B.; Grieger, David M.; Waggoner, Justin W.; Moser, Daniel W.; Weaber, Robert L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2014-05-16)
    Reproductive success is relevant in beef cattle operations because income generated by the sale of calves is often a large portion of an operation’s income. Selecting for fertility is difficult because it is influenced ...
  • Pownall, Emily C.; McEwan, Robert S.; Unruh, John A.; Stroda, Sally L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2014-06-06)
    Consumers often use color as the main criteria in selecting meat products, and they associate a bright red color with freshness. Longer display life without discoloration can result in more opportunities to sell the ...
  • Schlegel, Ethan R.; Blasi, Dale A.; Hollenbeck, William R.; Oleen, Brandon E.; Renter, David G.; Spire, Mark F. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2014-05-16)
    The objective of this study was to determine the health and performance effects of Zuprevo 18% (tildipirosin, 4 mg/kg body weight) during a 42-day backgrounding period when administered to high-risk transported cattle ...
  • Dietz, Garret J.; Houser, Terry A.; Gerlach, Bryce M.; Adhikari, Koushik; Gonzalez, John M.; Unruh, John A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2014-06-06)
    Top sirloin butts are commonly blade-tenderized to significantly increase tenderness, but minimal data have shown the relationship between blade tenderization and color stability as well as the effect of extended postmortem ...
  • Reinhardt, Christopher D (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2014-05-12)
    The beneficial effects of anabolic implants with respect to feedlot performance and carcass weight are nearly unequivocal. Although individual prospective studies may have concluded that there are no significant differences ...
  • 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 ...
  • Bates, Kerri E.; Weaber, Robert L.; Bormann, Jennifer M.; Moser, Daniel W.; Salak-Johnson, J. L.; Chase, C. C. L.; Peel, R. K.; Van Campen, H.; Loneragan, G. H.; Wagner, J. J.; Bodhireddy, P.; Prayaga, K.; Enns, R. M. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2014-05-16)
    Cattle producers historically have selected for docile temperaments simply for management convenience because calmer animals are conducive to safe environments for their peers as well as their handlers. As many producers ...
  • 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 ...
  • Feltrin, G.; Alvarado-Gilis, Christian A.; Van Bibber-Krueger, Cadra L.; Klamfoth, D.; Drouillard, James S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2014-06-03)
    We have investigated the potential for using hydrated lime to form protective matrices with oil-rich feeds, such as flaxseed, to increase the incorporation of omega-3 fatty acids into meat. Dolomitic lime is mixed with ...
  • Phebus, Randall C.; Sevart, Nicholas J.; Baumann, Nicholas W.; Phebus, Randall K. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2014-06-06)
    Shiga toxin-producing Escherichia coli (STEC) are a group of bacteria that cause an estimated 265,000 illnesses, 3,600 hospitalizations, and 30 deaths annually in the United States. STEC are frequently associated with ...
