Over two consecutive years, the effects of allocating divergent biological types of cattle (n=107) to fescue pasture without supplementation, or fescue or orchardgrass pasture with soyhull supplementation on chemical, fatty acid and sensory characteristics were investigated. Cattle from the two supplemented treatments produced beef that had increased(More)
Soyhull supplementation to divergent biological types of cattle on forage-based systems was studied to determine the impact on carcass and color characteristics. Weaned calves (n=107) biologically classified as large-, medium-, or small-framed and intermediate rate of maturing were allocated to three cool-season grazing systems consisting of either(More)
Pumpkins for Halloween usage are grown throughout Tennessee. The primary acreage of pumpkins is on the Cumberland Plateau, but pumpkins are grown throughout the state. Cultivars have been found to perform differently at different location. Rainfall and temperature differences affect fruit set and development and disease problems. Pumpkins have been a(More)
Sweet corn for fresh market usage is grown primarily in home gardens and in small commercial plots for local sales in Tennessee. Acreage produced for local markets has expanded in recent years. Sweet corn is grown commercially in every county in Tennessee, and total acreage of fresh market sweet corn is estimated at over 3000. Most of the cultivars grown(More)
Muskmelons are grown in limited commercial acreage in Middle Tennessee. This area with a somewhat dry and warm summer growing season is well adapted to muskmelon production. However in some years, fruit shipping quality is poor. Producing muskmelons with consistent quality is a difficult task in many areas, and especially in the humid eastern United States.(More)
Angus cow-calf pairs (N = 114) were individually fed grass silage diets under conditions chosen to approximate nutrient intake under a free grazing, noncreep situation. Postfactum comparison with a subsequently conducted study on pasture indicated that the procedures used produced animal responses similar to those provided by a tall fescue pasture averaging(More)
