Cover for Linear models for determining digestibility.

A brief overview of linear regression is presented in this chapter, followed by an appraisal examining the use of linear models to estimate digestibility, one of the main components of the nutritive value of feedstuffs, and hence one of the most studied variables in quantitative animal nutrition.

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 Mathematical representation of the partitioning of retained energy in the growing pig.

The focus of this review is the assessment of calculation rules to represent the partitioning of retained energy between body protein deposition (Pd) and lipid deposition (Ld) when Pd is driven by energy intake. During this energy-dependent phase, Pd is not limited by the animals' upper limit to Pd ...

Cover for The utilization of prediction models to optimize farm animal production systems: the case of a growing pig model.

In the last 25 years, mathematical models for growing animals have been developed to predict growth from knowledge on animal biology. The increasing precision of these models allows them to be used to evaluate economic return and/or environmental impact of the simulated production system. It is...
