Cover for Evaluation of a growth model of preruminant calves and modifications to simulate shortterm responses to changes in protein intake.

Recently, a mechanistic simulation model was developed which integrates protein and energy metabolism of preruminant calves of 80 to 240 kg live-weight (LW). The model can be used to predict the rate of gain of weight, protein and fat from nutrient input. A serial slaughter experiment was conducted ...

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 Whole-animal models.

This chapter describes compartmental models which simulate whole-animal function. The animals considered are the veal calf, the lactating dairy cow, the pig and the lactating sow. Essentially, the models are expressions of the rate:state formalism, but, as in the previous chapter, they are...

Cover for Animal products.

In this chapter, equations for milk yield from dairy cows are discussed, followed by energy utilization efficiency for milk production. The next two sections focus on meat production, body composition and allometry, leading to considerations of growth efficiency. Egg production and the amino acid...

Cover for Quantitative aspects of ruminant digestion and metabolism.

This book aims to bring together the quantitative approaches concerned with elucidating mechanisms used in the study of ruminant digestion, metabolism and related areas from different contributing practitioners, experts and scientists. A great deal of research had been carried out on the digestive...

Cover for Modelling energy expenditure in pigs.

In pigs, more than 50% of the ingested energy is dissipated as heat. The heat production of animals can be measured using indirect calorimetry, which is based on the concept that heat is produced through oxidation of nutrients. A technique was developed that allows modelling the dynamics of heat...

Cover for Metabolic control: improvement of a dynamic model of lactational metabolism in early lactation.

A mechanistic, dynamic model of metabolism exists to allow testing of complex hypotheses on nutrient metabolism of the dairy cow. The model describes protein synthesis and degradation in the viscera and muscle, lipogenesis and lipolysis in the adipose tissue, and milk synthesis. It is dynamic,...
