CABI Book Chapter Info
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...

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 Second-generation dynamic cattle growth and composition models.

Establishing effective strategies for future improvement of beef production requires integration of knowledge of genetics, nutrition and economics to optimize quality and quantity of beef produced. Failure to achieve an effective strategy negatively impacts on sustainability of both land and market ...

Cover for Modelling interactions between cow milk yield and growth of its suckling calf.

A simple mechanistic model of the relationship between cow milk production and suckling calf growth is described. In this model, milk secretion of the mammary gland is regulated through the amount of milk currently present in the udder (short-term regulation) and through the amount of the...

Cover for Modelling nutrient utilization in growing cattle subjected to short or long periods of moderate to severe undernutrition.

In the semiarid tropics rainfall is seasonal and varies widely between years. Consequently, grazing animals are subjected to short or long periods of moderate to severe undernutrition. Undernutrition in young ruminants affects their chances for survival and the time required to reach the weight and ...

Cover for Growth patterns of Nellore vs British beef cattle breeds assessed using a dynamic, mechanistic model of cattle growth and composition.

The dynamic model of post-weaning growth and composition developed by Oltjen et al. (1986) was reparameterized using a data-set of seven experiments with a total of 119 Nellore bulls where dry matter intake (DMI), metabolizable energy (ME) concentrations of the diets, and initial and final empty...

Cover for A model to evaluate beef cow efficiency.

The beef cattle seed stock industry in the USA is searching for ways to select for improved beef cow efficiency. Most selection indexes for efficiency have a goal of using less resource while obtaining the same outcome in a sustainable environment. However, the inputs required to determine...
