CABI Book Chapter Info
Cover for Compartmental models of protein turnover to resolve isotope dilution data.

In this chapter, the applications in the animal sciences of dynamic modelling, based on the rate:state formalism, with Type I solutions are illustrated. This chapter deals with modelling animal processes, i.e. specific components or functions of an individual organ or tissue (or whole organism)....

Cover for Evaluation of a representation of the limiting amino acid theory for milk protein synthesis.

A model describing amino acid (AA) metabolism by the mammary glands of the lactating cow has been constructed (Hanigan et al., 2000a). Milk protein production was predicted using a mathematical procedure to determine which among histidine (His), lysine (Lys), methionine (Met), threonine (Thr) and...

Cover for Isotope dilution models for partitioning amino acid uptake by the liver, mammary gland and hindlimb tissues of ruminants.

Isotope dilution models for partitioning leucine uptake by the liver and mammary gland, and tyrosine uptake by the hindlimb of ruminants have been constructed and solved in the steady state. The models require the measurement of plasma flow rate through the tissue beds in combination with...

Cover for Modelling lactation potential in an animal model.

The efforts that have been undertaken to develop prediction models capable of describing the effects of nutrition and animal factors on milk and milk component yields are reviewed. The general principles behind these prediction models, including the problems encountered when using them are...

Cover for Segmented, constrained, non-linear, multi-objective, dynamic optimization methodology applied to the dairy cow ration formulation problem.

In the last meeting of this series of modelling workshops we reported on the development of an optimization scheme for dealing with dairy cow ration formulation, in an optimal way, in the situation where constraints were both non-linear and discontinuous in their arguments. Indeed, we illustrated...

Cover for An ingredient-based input scheme for Molly.

The model described by Baldwin and co-workers (Baldwin et al., 1987; Baldwin, 1995) known as Molly utilizes a nutrient-based input scheme, where each nutrient is generally treated as a homogeneous substrate regardless of the source of that nutrient. The exception is a limited, discrete...
