  • Raines, C.; Hunt, Melvin C.; Unruh, John A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2009-12-09)
    It is widely accepted that meat color is the most important influencer of consumers’ meat purchasing decisions. Understanding how ground cow meat discolors is, and will continue to be, very important as a large influx of ...
  • Grobbel, J.P.; Dikeman, Michael E.; Milliken, George A.; Hunt, Melvin C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2009-12-09)
    Several meat quality traits affect consumers’ overall purchase decisions and satisfaction with meat products, but color is the major factor affecting purchasing decisions. According to some researchers, tenderness is the ...
  • Grobbel, J.P.; Dikeman, Michael E.; Milliken, George A.; Hunt, Melvin C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2009-12-09)
    Case-ready meat provides many benefits, including quality and safety. Meat packaged in high-oxygen (HiO2) modified atmosphere packaging (MAP) has a desirable bright red display color but may have increased off- flavors ...
  • Thomas, M.D.; Stevenson, Jeffrey S.; Bolte, J.W.; Sproul, N.A.; Linden, D.A.; Olson, K. C.; Jaeger, John R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2009-12-09)
    Fat supplementation before calving (i.e., prepartum) can alter reproductive performance of beef cows. These effects do not seem to be related to energy or protein content of the supplement. Chemical structures of some ...
  • Anglin, C.O.; Epp, M.P.; Derstein, R.D.; Barnhardt, B.B.; Blasi, Dale A.; Olson, K. C.; Reinhardt, Christopher D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2009-12-14)
    Beef stocker operators are margin-operators, and rising feed costs force them to consider alternative feeding strategies to reduce production costs. Limit-feeding is a management technique that has positive implications ...
  • Arnett, A.M.; Daniel, M.J.; Dikeman, Michael E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2009-12-09)
    Marbling continues to be a major factor affecting profitability for beef producers, processors, retailers, and restaurateurs. However, feeding animals to ‘fatten’ is quite inefficient, requiring about 2.25 times more energy ...
  • Uwituze, S.; Parsons, G.L.; Shelor, M.K.; Karges, K.K.; Gibson, M.L.; Depenbusch, Brandon E.; Drouillard, James S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-01-21)
    Rapid expansion of fuel ethanol production in the High Plains, where feedlots commonly use steam-flaked corn diets, has popularized substituting dried distiller’s grains with solubles (DDGS) for a portion of the ...
  • Daniel, M.J.; Arnett, A.M.; Dikeman, Michael E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2009-12-09)
    Because the beef industry commonly uses marbling as an indicator of meat palatability, determining the most cost effective methods of increasing quality grade in cattle is a high priority. Previous research showed that ...
