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 Animal processes.

This chapter considers some simple compartmental models of animal processes, with reference to ruminants. The processes described are protein synthesis in tissues and the whole body, volatile fatty acid production by rumen microbes, life-cycle dynamics of rumen fungi, leucine kinetics in the udder, ...

Cover for Advantages of a dynamical approach to rumen function to help to resolve environmental issues.

Simulation studies demonstrated the difference between current practice (static representation) and a dynamic representation of rumen function. Where current feed evaluation indicated absent or linear responses to changes in dry matter intake (DMI) and exchange of grass and maize silage, simulated...

Cover for Production efficiency of ruminants: feed, nitrogen and methane.

This chapter discusses the production efficiency of ruminants, particularly cattle, in relation to feeds, nitrogen excretion and methane emission. Focus is given on the production efficiency of cattle, primarily that of dairy cattle, at the animal level. Improvements in production efficiency are...

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 Functions for microbial growth.

The aim of this study was to evaluate the suitability of several mathematical functions for describing microbial growth curves. The functions considered were three-phase linear, logistic, Gompertz, Richards, Weibull and Baranyi. One data-set was used, comprising 34 curves stemming from viable count ...

Cover for Towards a more accurate representation of fermentation in mathematical models of the rumen.

Most mathematical models of the rumen make use of empirical stoichiometric equations to predict the production of fermentation products in the rumen. These models are based on a one, two and three microbial group representation of the total rumen microbial population. The prediction of total VFA...
