CABI Book Info
Cover for Mathematical modelling in animal nutrition.

The primary purpose of each of the subsequent chapters of this book is to promulgate quantitative approaches concerned with elucidating mechanisms in a particular area of the nutrition of ruminants, pigs, poultry, fish or pets. Given the diverse scientific backgrounds of the contributors of each...

Cover for Mathematical representation of the partitioning of retained energy in the growing pig.

The focus of this review is the assessment of calculation rules to represent the partitioning of retained energy between body protein deposition (Pd) and lipid deposition (Ld) when Pd is driven by energy intake. During this energy-dependent phase, Pd is not limited by the animals' upper limit to Pd ...

Cover for Modelling phosphorus metabolism.

In this chapter, examples of empirical, kinetic and mechanistic models of phosphorus (P) metabolism in ruminants and monogastric animals, viz. cattle, goats, sheep, horses, pigs and poultry, are discussed. The mechanistic models of P flow in ruminants and monogastric animals described in this...

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 energy expenditure in pigs.

In pigs, more than 50% of the ingested energy is dissipated as heat. The heat production of animals can be measured using indirect calorimetry, which is based on the concept that heat is produced through oxidation of nutrients. A technique was developed that allows modelling the dynamics of heat...

Cover for The utilization of prediction models to optimize farm animal production systems: the case of a growing pig model.

In the last 25 years, mathematical models for growing animals have been developed to predict growth from knowledge on animal biology. The increasing precision of these models allows them to be used to evaluate economic return and/or environmental impact of the simulated production system. It is...

Cover for The prediction of the consequences of pathogen challenges on the performance of growing pigs.

The purpose of this chapter is to develop a general framework that will enable progress to be made in our ability to predict pig performance in the presence of infectious stressors. Focus is given on subclinical infection, i.e. infection that does not lead to clear signs of disease other than a...
