CABI Book Chapter Info
Cover for Modelling protozoal metabolism and volatile fatty acid production in the rumen.

The aim of this chapter is to describe two key aspects in the supply of absorbed nutrients, i.e. the quantitative representation of protozoal metabolism, and the quantitative representation of volatile fatty acid production in the rumen.

Cover for Modelling nutrient utilization by livestock grazing semiarid rangeland.

Planning and management of rangeland production systems are difficult as rainfall, forage production and composition and animal productivity all vary widely between years, between regions and within landscapes. Furthermore, behaviour of the system in a specific year may be influenced by conditions...

Cover for A pig model for feed evaluation.

This chapter describes a dynamic, semi-mechanistic model of growing pigs. The purpose of the model is to predict growth rate and growth composition from given feed inputs and thereby serve as a basis for a new, nutrient-based feed evaluation system for slaughter pigs. The model consists of two...

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...

Cover for Rostock feed evaluation system - an example of the transformation of energy and nutrient utilization models to practical application.

The history of energetic feed evaluation is an excellent example of the transfer of models of scientific knowledge to practical application. In developmental steps spanning over 50 years the Rostock team investigated the energy metabolism and utilization of nutrients for fat synthesis (net energy...
