CABI Book Chapter Info
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 Evaluation of a representation of the limiting amino acid theory for milk protein synthesis.

A model describing amino acid (AA) metabolism by the mammary glands of the lactating cow has been constructed (Hanigan et al., 2000a). Milk protein production was predicted using a mathematical procedure to determine which among histidine (His), lysine (Lys), methionine (Met), threonine (Thr) and...

Cover for Metabolic control: improvement of a dynamic model of lactational metabolism in early lactation.

A mechanistic, dynamic model of metabolism exists to allow testing of complex hypotheses on nutrient metabolism of the dairy cow. The model describes protein synthesis and degradation in the viscera and muscle, lipogenesis and lipolysis in the adipose tissue, and milk synthesis. It is dynamic,...

Cover for Simulating chemical and tissue composition of growing beef cattle: from the model to the tool.

This study deals with an improvement of a previously published mechanistic and dynamic model of beef cattle growth, the fitting and validation processes, and the inclusion of this model in a decision support (DS) tool. The improvement of the model consists in the modelling of body tissue...

Cover for A rodent model of protein turnover to determine protein synthesis, amino acid channelling and recycling rates in tissues.

Amino acids for protein synthesis can arise from extracellular (Ec), plasma (Pls) or intracellular (Ic) sources or protein degradation through recycling. Experimentally, the amino acid sources sampled may not represent these specific pools and therefore not represent true sources of amino acids...

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 Using rumen degradation model to evaluate microbial protein yield and intestinal digestion of grains in cattle.

Ruminal degradation and kinetic parameters are usually obtained using the polyester (nylon) bag technique. Rumen degradation data were used to estimate yields of rumen microbial protein (RMP) and total protein digestion in the intestines (PDI). The content of organic matter (OM) and crude protein...
