CABI Book Chapter Info
Cover for Basic biological processes.

All significant processes in agriculture are either chemical or biochemical conversions or transport. Mathematical descriptions of these processes are therefore relevant to models. Control of metabolism is an important issue. This can occur at the genetic level via the induction or repression of...

Cover for A model to simulate the effects of different dietary strategies on the sustainability of a dairy farm system.

A new model is being developed to study the main elements that affect sustainability within a dairy farm by using multiple goal programming. In this work, we describe the main characteristics of this modelling approach and we evaluate, via optimization, the effect of different dietary strategies...

Cover for Advantages of a dynamical approach to rumen function to help to resolve environmental issues.

Simulation studies demonstrated the difference between current practice (static representation) and a dynamic representation of rumen function. Where current feed evaluation indicated absent or linear responses to changes in dry matter intake (DMI) and exchange of grass and maize silage, simulated...

Cover for Simulation of rumen particle dynamics using a non-steady state model of rumen digestion and nutrient availability in dairy cows fed sugarcane.

An extant dynamic model of digestion and absorption of nutrients in cattle fed sugarcane was adapted for non-steady state feeding conditions. This modified model includes mechanisms of particle size reduction and delay in availability of particles and intracellular contents for microbial...

Cover for Production efficiency of ruminants: feed, nitrogen and methane.

This chapter discusses the production efficiency of ruminants, particularly cattle, in relation to feeds, nitrogen excretion and methane emission. Focus is given on the production efficiency of cattle, primarily that of dairy cattle, at the animal level. Improvements in production efficiency are...
