Effect of initial restraint, weaning, and transport stress on baseline and ACTH-stimulated cortisol responses in beef calves of different genotypes.
The productivity and well-being of animals can be substantially affected by stress. This is particularly true in the case of beef calves that are subjected to a multitude of stressors over a shortExpand

Genetic effects on acute phase protein response to the stresses of weaning and transportation in beef calves.
The objective herein was to estimate heterosis and breed effects in purebred and crossbred Romosinuano, Brahman, and Angus calves on acute phase protein response to weaning and transportation. CalvesExpand

Intramuscular fat and fatty acid composition of longissimus muscle from divergent pure breeds of cattle.
The objective of this study was to compare the fatty acid (FA) composition of intramuscular fat from the LM of 3 divergent breeds of cattle: Angus (AN, n = 9), Brahman (BR, n = 7), and RomosinuanoExpand

Silage or limit-fed grain growing diets for steers: I. Growth and carcass quality.
The influence of energy source (silage- [S] or grain- [G] based) on organ growth, carcass quality, and meat acceptability independent of rate of gain was examined. Sixty-four Angus steers wereExpand

Evaluation of tropically adapted straightbred and crossbred cattle: postweaning gain and feed efficiency when finished in a temperate climate.
Beef cows in the subtropical USA must be adapted to the stressors of the environment, typically supplied by using Brahman (Br) breeding. Calves produced in the region, however, are usually grown andExpand

Genotype x environment interactions for postweaning performance in crossbred calves grazing winter wheat pasture or dormant native prairie.
Data from 403 calves from Angus, Brahman, and reciprocal-cross cows sired by Polled Hereford bulls were used to evaluate the impact of postweaning backgrounding forages on postweaning BW, gains, andExpand

Productivity and Economic Return of Three Warm Season Grass Stocker Systems for the Southern Great Plains
Production per animal and per acre and input cost and returns were determined on three grazing systems, native range (NR), bermudagrass [Cynodon dactylon (L.) Pers. var. dactylon] (B), and Old WorldExpand

Effect of protein supplementation on forage intake and nitrogen balance of lambs fed freshly harvested wheat forage.
Wether lambs (mean BW = 32 kg) fed wheat forage freshly harvested daily (Exp. 1, n = 28; Exp. 2, n = 25) were used to evaluate the effects of supplemental energy and protein on forage intake, dietExpand
