  • Shivas, S.D.; Kastner, Curtis L.; Dikeman, Michael E.; Hunt, Melvin C.; Kropf, Donald H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 2010-12-15)
    We found steaks cut from inside rounds (chilled fast or slow) of electrically stimulated and hot boned bull carcasses, to be similar to conventionally processed steaks in taste panel, shear force and cooking loss characteristics.
  • Corah, L.; O'Neill, S.; Riley, Jack G.; Pope, Ronald V. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-01-27)
    Steers consuming a free choice mineral mix containing Aureomycin (437 mg per hd per day) gained 15.3% faster than controls during a 129 day grazing trial on brome grass pasture. There was considerable variation in daily ...
  • Pruitt, D.; Corah, L.; Kiracofe, G.; McKee, M.; Spire, M. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 2010-12-15)
    Simmental and Hereford bulls were fed individually three levels of energy per breed for 200 days beginning shortly after weaning. Then all bulls were adjusted to a roughage ration for 10 days, before grazing brome pasture ...
  • Bartley, E.E.; Nagaraja, Tiruvoor G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 2010-12-14)
    Lasalocid or monensin (600 mg per 1000 lb body weight daily) was tested on cattle bloating on high grain diets. Bloat was reduced 92% by Lasalocid and 64% by monensin. When fed throughout the finishing period, lasalocid ...
  • LaTourell, D.; Kuhl, Gerry L.; Drake, C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-01-27)
    Implanting heifers initially and mid-way through the finishing period with Ralgro and Synovex-H in any combination produced similar weight gains. Daily gains of cattle implanted with Ralgro + Ralgro, Ralgro + Synovex-H, ...
  • Simms, D.; Kuhl, Gerry L.; Tonn, S.; Schalles, R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-01-27)
    A field study was conducted to evaluate the effect of reimplanting, and of implanting technique, on the performance of yearling heifers. Daily gains of reimplanted, single implanted and non-implanted cattle averaged 3.00, ...
  • Lomas, Lyle W. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-01-27)
    Processing method (evaporated vs. rock) had no effect on salt consumption or weight gain of growing stocker cattle. Steers consumed 2.18 times more loose salt than block salt.
  • Laudert, S.; Nelson, R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-01-27)
    Heifer calves grazing winter wheat pasture and implanted with Synovex-H or Ralgro gained 18 and 14% faster (P<.01) respectively, than heifers not implanted. Weight gains were similar for both implants.
  • Laudert, S.; Sauerwein, C.; Harris, G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-01-27)
    Compudose and Ralgro improved (P<.05) average daily gain 15% over non-implanted controls. No difference was observed between the two implants. Tramisol injectable wormer increased (P<.05) average daily gain 8% over non-wormed ...
  • Choi, Y.I.; Hunt, Melvin C.; Kropf, Donald H.; Kastner, Curtis L.; Dikeman, Michael E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 2010-12-15)
    Presalted, hot-boned muscle has excellent emulsifying properties for sausage manufacturing. However, electrical stimulation degrades these properties. Thus, while electrical stimulation and hot boning produce acceptable ...
  • Simms, D.; Kuhl, Gerry L.; Tonn, S.; Schalles, R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 2010-12-15)
    Lutalyse aborted 86.7% of heifers 40 to 100 days pregnant. Of four heifers tested at 101 to 150 days pregnant, all aborted. Open heifers gained faster (P<.05) than heifers that either were aborted or pregnant at slaughter. ...
  • Heidker, J.; Ilg, H.; Bolsen, K.; Behnke, Keith C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 2010-12-15)
    ELPWA (a lactobacillus inoculant with antioxidant), molasses, or both combined were evaluated as additives to high moisture sorghum grain ensiled in concrete stave silos. ELPWA treated grain had the greatest temperature ...
  • Lambert, C.; Corah, L.; Grunewald, O. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 2010-12-15)
    Data were collected on 85,195 cattle sold in 15 Kansas auctions during October and November 1981. Buyers discounted sick cattle heavily, 'and discounts were heavier on sick calves than yearlings. The discount for bulls ...
  • Keay, L.E.; Kiracofe, G.; Odde, Kenneth G.; Stevenson, Jeffrey S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 2010-12-15)
    One-hundred eighteen heifers were used to determine the effectiveness of Alfaprostol as a heat synchronization agent. Seventy-nine were injected twice (12 days apart) with 6 mg Alfaprostol per head and 39 were not treated. ...
  • Young, B.; Ilg, H.; Bolsen, K. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 2010-12-15)
    Dry corn, stave ensiled high-moisture corn (HMC), stave ensiled HMC treated with urea, and Harvestore ensiled HMC were evaluated in a steer finishing trial. Alfalfa hay and corn silage were the roughages and soybean meal ...
  • Hinds, M.; Brethour, J.; Bolsen, K. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 2010-12-15)
    Inoculant (1177 in one trial) and non-protein nitrogen (LSA-100 in two trials) silage additives were evaluated with whole-plant forage sorghum silage. Steers fed LSA-100 silage gained faster than steers fed control ...
  • Kropf, Donald H.; Hunt, Melvin C.; Cross, H.R.; Dikeman, Michael E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 2010-12-15)
    Beef carcass quality factors were evaluated under 25 different lighting systems (five lighting types each at five light intensities). Cool White fluorescent caused the darkest and most mature lean score, but marbling ...
  • Simon, M.; Keay, L.E.; Kiracofe, G.; Riley, Jack G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-01-27)
    Heifers that were 167 days pregnant when slaughtered gained faster and more efficiently than open heifers, or heifers that had been aborted with a prostaglandin analog at 83 or 138 days, unless the slaughter weight was ...
  • Schalles, R.R.; Spire, M.; Clarke, Colleen Kay (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 2010-12-15)
    Heavy milking cows took longer to respond to estrus synchronization than light milking cows. There was no difference in response time between cows treated with Estrumate and Lutalyse. Cow weight, height or condition had ...
  • Spire, M.F.; Riley, Jack G.; Edwards, A.J. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 2011-01-27)
    Two trials were conducted to evaluate the effectiveness of revaccinating recently processed cattle with modified live IBR and BVD vaccine. Revaccination decreased total illness 24 to 26%. A significant reduction in clinically ...
