(University of Missouri, 1917)
This thesis explores the chemical composition of beef cattle, with special attention given to nitrogen, phosphorus, sulfur, and ash content. A review of previous research is provided as well as a description of an experiment carried out...
A study of the processes of fat metabolism and methods for the determination of fat
(University of Missouri, 1914)
