CABI Book Chapter Info
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 Modelling lactation potential in an animal model.

The efforts that have been undertaken to develop prediction models capable of describing the effects of nutrition and animal factors on milk and milk component yields are reviewed. The general principles behind these prediction models, including the problems encountered when using them are...

Cover for A composite model of growth, pregnancy and lactation.

Mathematical models of pre- and postnatal growth, pregnancy and lactation were combined and implemented using object-orientated computer code to form an energy-based model of a dairy cow. Each simulated cow 'grows', can have a computer pregnancy with multiple offspring, growing its fetuses to term, ...

Cover for Prediction of body weight and composition from body dimension measurements in lactating dairy cows.

Body composition data and live animal measurements were obtained from 146 Holstein × Friesian lactating cows. Live animal measurements were recorded 3 or 4 days prior to slaughter, including live weight (LW), body condition score (BCS), girth, belly girth, height and length. The objective was to...

Cover for The Nordic dairy cow model, Karoline - description.

The Karoline model described in this study is a whole-animal cow model intended to be used by the advisory services in the Nordic countries, i.e. Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden. Karoline is a dynamic, deterministic and mechanistic simulation model of lactating dairy cows. It consists...

Cover for Relationships between body composition and ultrasonic measurements in lactating dairy cows.

The present study involves ultrasonic measurements and determination of body composition of 146 Holstein × Friesian lactating cows offered grass silage-based diets ad libitum. The ultrasonic measurements were recorded 3 or 4 days prior to slaughter, including back fat (BF) thickness and depth and...
