Cover for Development of a dynamic model of calcium and phosphorus flows in layers.

Phosphorus (P) is involved in most metabolic activities of the body as well as in bone formation. P and calcium (Ca) are closely related so that a deficiency in one can interfere with proper utilization of the other. In layers, requirement for dietary P is mainly due to the need to store Ca in...

Cover for Evaluation of models to predict methane emissions from enteric fermentation in North American dairy cattle.

The increasing focus on the environmental impact of agriculture means that there is a need for an accurate inventory of greenhouse gases (GHGs) to identify main sources of pollution and evaluate effects of potential mitigating options. A number of models have been developed to predict methane...

Cover for Functions for microbial growth.

The aim of this study was to evaluate the suitability of several mathematical functions for describing microbial growth curves. The functions considered were three-phase linear, logistic, Gompertz, Richards, Weibull and Baranyi. One data-set was used, comprising 34 curves stemming from viable count ...

Cover for Simple allometric models to predict rumen feed passage rate in domestic ruminants.

A database was developed from the literature (36 publications) to explore the mechanisms controlling rumen feed passage rate (Kp) and to predict it. The database included the results of 157 different dietary treatments and passage rate measurements with 45 treatments on dry sheep or wethers, 42 on...

Cover for Models to interpret degradation profiles obtained from <i xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">in vitro</i> and <i xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">in situ</i> incubation of ruminant feeds.

Degradation kinetic parameters are usually estimated from degradation profiles obtained using the polyester bag technique or the gas production technique. Models to describe either in situ disappearance curves or gas production profiles were derived from first principles by considering simple...
