CABI Book Chapter Info
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 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...

Cover for Dynamic simulation of phosphorus utilization in salmonid fish.

Minimizing phosphorus (P) wastes is a key factor for environmental sustainability of freshwater aquaculture operations. A dynamic model was constructed to simulate P utilization in salmonid fish through digestion, body deposition and excretion into urine and faeces. Dietary P was classified into...

Cover for A simple nutrient-based production model for the growing pig.

The basic principles for a simple nutrient partitioning model for the growing pig are outlined. The proposed model is meant for practical feed evaluation and is based on input data for the actual feed, the actual pig and the actual feeding situation. The system is composed of four steps, including: ...

Cover for Using rumen degradation model to evaluate microbial protein yield and intestinal digestion of grains in cattle.

Ruminal degradation and kinetic parameters are usually obtained using the polyester (nylon) bag technique. Rumen degradation data were used to estimate yields of rumen microbial protein (RMP) and total protein digestion in the intestines (PDI). The content of organic matter (OM) and crude protein...
