  • Powell, T.H.; Laudert, S.D.; Lee, R.W.; Seibert, G.; Unruh, John A.; Dikeman, Michael E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-10-14)
    Kansas State University, in cooperation with the Beef Empire Days committee, developed a new beef carcass index system for 1991, incorporating yield and quality traits as indicators of carcass merit. Development of the ...
  • Dikeman, Michael E.; Melton, C.C.; Tuma, H.J.; Beecher, G.R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-03-17)
    Because tenderness is considered the most desired eating characteristic in meat, more emphasis should be placed on this trait in evaluating beef quality in breeding and selection programs. Both tenderness and marbling ...
  • Dikeman, Michael E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2013-03-19)
    The primary purpose of producing beef cattle is to convert grass, forages, and various byproducts, plus human-edible protein and energy, into highly nutritious and tasty beef. To accomplish this, (1) cattle enterprises ...
  • Andrews, B.S.; Unruh, John A.; Hunt, Melvin C.; Kastner, Curtis L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-02-19)
    Eighty-one boneless pork loins were used to determine the influence of freezing and pH on Warner-Bratzler shear force (WBS) values and cookery traits. Chops with lower pH (<5.5 to 5.5) had higher cooking losses than ...
  • Gray, D.G.; Unruh, John A.; Kastner, Curtis L.; Dikeman, Michael E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-12-14)
    Low voltage electrical stimulation of young bulls at 30 to 45 min after bleeding resulted in a lower muscle pH, higher marbling score, lighter cherry red color and reduced incidence of heat ring formation when compared to ...
  • Sorheim, O.; Hunt, Melvin C.; Menninen, M.; Warren, K.E.; Kropf, Donald H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-04-15)
    Use of 10% oxygen in a modified gas atmosphere package resulted in more off-odor, higher microbial counts, and a less desirably colored loin and loin chops. Furthermore, it reduced chop display life and is not recommended.
  • Andrews, B.S.; Unruh, John A.; Hunt, Melvin C.; Kastner, Curtis L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-02-19)
    Eighty-one boneless pork loins were used to determine the influence of pH on quality characteristics. With increasing loin pH, instrumental values for L* (lightness) and b* (yellowness) of loins and chops decreased, and ...
  • Andrews, B.S.; Unruh, John A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-08-06)
    We used 108 top sirloin butts to determine the influence of quality grades, postmortem aging periods, and blade tenderization passes on percentages of thawing and cooking losses and Warner-Bratzler shear (WBS) force ...
  • Schmidt, Karen A.; Stupar, J.; Shirley, John E.; Adapa, S.; Sukup, D. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-05-06)
    The value of titratable acidity (TA) as an indicator of raw milk quality has been challenged recently, because milk is refrigerated within minutes after it leaves the cow until it reaches the consumer. Also, high milk ...
  • Waylan, A.T.; Johnson, R.C.; Unruh, John A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-02-25)
    Eighty-two boneless pork loins were used to examine the effects of chop location on longissimus muscle quality. The highest quality chops came from the posterior end. They had the lowest Warner-Bratzler shear value (most ...
  • Mackintosh, D.L.; Kropf, Donald H.; Good, D.L.; Wheat, J.D.; Teagarden, J.; Harrison, D.L. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-05-04)
    Seventy head of fed Hereford steers, sired by four different bulls, were slaughtered in Kansas City, and the rib cut from 40 (10 for each sire) returned to Manhattan for detailed analysis. Cooking data are now available ...
  • Hunt, Melvin C.; Kropf, Donald H.; Chen, V.; Harrison, A.; Corte, O.; Kuntapanit, C.; Smith, M.E.; Thomas, J.; Kastner, Curtis L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-03-04)
    Ten steers of known background, approximately 18 months old, and wintered on alfalfa and protein were finished on a brome and bluestem grazing program. Carcass characteristics were measured. The influence of conditioning ...
  • Harrison, A.R.; Smith, M.E.; Allen, Dell M.; Hunt, Melvin C.; Kastner, Curtis L.; Kropf, Donald H. (American Society of Animal Science, 2008-06-02)
    Quality and yield characteristics of 38 crossbred steer carcasses were evaluated to measure the effects of four nutritional regimes: grass-fed -- winter growing ration (2.18 Mcal ME/kg), followed by summer grazing; ...
  • Schmidt, Karen A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-12-01)
    Raw milk quality is important to the processor for many reasons, this quality can be assessed by several different tests. Quality tests are used to ensure that the raw milk meets legal USDA standards as well as some of ...
  • Garcia Zepeda, C.M.; Kastner, Curtis L.; Hunt, Melvin C.; Kenney, P.B.; Schwenke, J.R.; Schleusener, D.S.; Kropf, Donald H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010-04-15)
    Surimi-like materials from boar and sow muscle and Alaska pollack surimi were evaluated at a 5% inclusion level in a restructured, precooked (158°F) pork roast. Meat batches were formulated to contain 95% chunked ham ...
