 Series: Interdepartmental (ID series)
 Tags:

Beef Quality Assurance (BQA) is a program developed to ensure that beef and dairy cattle are managed in a manner that will result in safe and wholesome beef and milk products for the consumer. Specifically, BQA is designed to enhance carcass quality by preventing drug residues, injection-site blemishes, and bruises. The Kentucky Beef Quality Assurance Program is based on recommended national guidelines and scientific research. This program enables beef and dairy producers to enhance their product, maximize marketability, and strengthen consumer confidence.

Mineral and Protein Blocks and Tubs for Cattle
11/3/2014 (new)

 UK Authors: Donna Amaral-Phillips, Roy Burris,
 Departments: Animal and Food Sciences
 Series: Animal Science (ASC series)
 Tags: nutrition and health

Nutritional supplement blocks and tubs are convenient for beef producers, require no investment in feeding troughs and require a limited area for storing. One of the most attractive features is that they lower the labor needed to supplement livestock. Many producers use these products to provide supplemental nutrients to cattle consuming low-quality forages or as a mechanism to promote a more consistent intake of minerals. These products are also attractive to producers who have off-farm employment as they eliminate the need for daily feeding. Yet, they often come at a greater cost per unit of nutrient than more conventional feedstuffs. Since there are differences in the blocks and tubs being marketed today, familiarity with how to compare products and determine their differences will enable producers to decide which product best fits their needs.

2012 Beef Research and Extension Report
1/7/2014 (new)

 UK Authors: Glen Aiken, Les Anderson, Dar
 Departments: Animal and Food Sciences, Plant and Soil Sciences,
 Series: Special Report (SR series)
 Tags:

The intent of this report is to provide highlights of our research and extension activities. We have a vested interest in the beef industry in the state and nation, and hope this report provides a window into our programs. We believe that after viewing this report, a greater appreciation will be garnered with respect to our involvement in the multiple fields of study related to beef production. The faculty, staff and student activities are advancing our understanding of basic science principles of livestock production as well as applied research that producers and the industry can benefit from immediately, as well as in the future. Extension educational programs, on-farm demonstrations, and other activities aid in transferring this knowledge to producers, allowing for increased awareness and adoption of management change.

Distillers Grain Coproducts for Beef Cattle
12/5/2011 (new)

 UK Authors: Roy Burris, Jeff Lehmkuhler
 Departments: Animal and Food Sciences
 Series: Animal Science (ASC series)
 Tags: farm crops, grain crops, nutrition and healt

Feeding distillers grains derived from the production of spirits or ethanol for fuel is an acceptable practice for beef cattle production. The use of these products as both an energy and a protein supplement has been beneficial as the cereal grain prices have increased making these coproducts more cost competitive.

 UK Authors: Tom Barnes, Ric Bessin, Jeffre
 Departments: Agricultural Economics, Animal and Food Sciences,
 Series: Interdepartmental (ID series)
 Tags:

Nearly all climate science experts agree that global warming is occurring and that it is caused primarily by human activity. Regardless of what you may read on blogs or in the media, there is no meaningful scientific controversy on these points. The future impacts of global warming are difficult to predict, but the changes caused by greenhouse gases are expected to increasingly affect Kentucky agriculture.

Managing Legume Induced Bloat in Cattle
3/10/2011 (new)

 UK Authors: Michelle Arnold, Roy Burris,
 Departments: Animal and Food Sciences, Plant and Soil Sciences,

 Tags: nutrition and health

Ruminal tympany, or bloat, can result in lost animal performance and in severe cases, death. It occurs as a result of a buildup of fermentation gases in the rumen. Bloat may be categorized as frothy bloat, which is caused by the formation of a stable foam in the rumen, or free gas bloat, which is due to excessive production of gaseous compounds from fermentation or as a result of an obstruction preventing the escape of gas compounds. Legume bloat is a frothy bloat condition.
