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, ...

CABI Book Chapter Info
Cover for Animal organs.

This chapter considers compartmental models which simulate whole organ function, with reference to ruminants. The organs considered in some detail are the mammary gland and the rumen. Essentially, the models are expressions of rate:state formalism, but here they are non-linear and must be...

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 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 Simple allometric models to predict rumen feed passage rate in domestic ruminants.

A database was developed from the literature (36 publications) to explore the mechanisms controlling rumen feed passage rate (Kp) and to predict it. The database included the results of 157 different dietary treatments and passage rate measurements with 45 treatments on dry sheep or wethers, 42 on...

Cover for Modelling fluxes of volatile fatty acids from rumen to portal blood.

A model was developed that describes the relationships between the production, the ruminal concentrations and the fluxes of volatile fatty acids (VFAs) across portal drained viscera (PDV). This study presents some preliminary results. Firstly, general steady state relationships between production...
