CABI Book Chapter Info
Cover for Dynamics of calcium and phosphorus metabolism in laying hens.

This chapter discusses the regulation of calcium and phosphorus metabolism in hens. A dynamic model of Ca and P metabolism is also presented that could help in evaluating the effects of changes in the feeding management of laying hens.

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 Simulation of rumen particle dynamics using a non-steady state model of rumen digestion and nutrient availability in dairy cows fed sugarcane.

An extant dynamic model of digestion and absorption of nutrients in cattle fed sugarcane was adapted for non-steady state feeding conditions. This modified model includes mechanisms of particle size reduction and delay in availability of particles and intracellular contents for microbial...
