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...
