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 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 Simulation exercises for animal science MSc students: rumen digestion and pig growth.

The objective of this chapter is to provide two complete teaching modules for MSc students of animal science (in Wageningen University, The Netherlands) with minimal background in modelling, but knowledge in animal nutrition at the BSc level. In working through the first module, students will...

Cover for Modelling lipid metabolism in the rumen.

Nutritional manipulation through fat supplementation of diets is of interest because of the large energy requirements of high-producing ruminants, and because of human health concerns about saturated long-chain fatty acids (LCFA) in ruminant products. High dietary fat levels may adversely affect...

Cover for Simulation of the development of adipose tissue in beef cattle.

The goal of this modelling exercise was to evaluate genetic, nutritional and other factors affecting the distribution of fat in growing and finishing beef cattle. The model had the following objectives: (i) to predict the accretion of total body fat as a function of genotype, sex, implant status...

Cover for Challenge and improvement of a model of post-absorptive metabolism in dairy cattle.

We have been conducting research to improve quantitative descriptions of metabolism in lactating dairy cows depicted in an existing mechanistic, computer-assisted model. The objective was to challenge this model with data collected in in vivo and in vitro experiments on high-producing dairy cattle...

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...
