Cover for Linear models for determining digestibility.

A brief overview of linear regression is presented in this chapter, followed by an appraisal examining the use of linear models to estimate digestibility, one of the main components of the nutritive value of feedstuffs, and hence one of the most studied variables in quantitative animal nutrition.

Cover for An ingredient-based input scheme for Molly.

The model described by Baldwin and co-workers (Baldwin et al., 1987; Baldwin, 1995) known as Molly utilizes a nutrient-based input scheme, where each nutrient is generally treated as a homogeneous substrate regardless of the source of that nutrient. The exception is a limited, discrete...

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 A pig model for feed evaluation.

This chapter describes a dynamic, semi-mechanistic model of growing pigs. The purpose of the model is to predict growth rate and growth composition from given feed inputs and thereby serve as a basis for a new, nutrient-based feed evaluation system for slaughter pigs. The model consists of two...
