Calibrating and validating the Texas A & M forage, diet, and sheep simulation models for the Edwards Plateau

, : Calibrating and validating the Texas A & M forage, diet, and sheep simulation models for the Edwards Plateau. Dissertation Abstracts International B, Sciences and Engineering 51(10): 4671B

The objective of this study was to calibrate and validate the Texas A & M forage dynamics, diet selection and sheep production models for the Edwards Plateau region of Texas. Field data from one site near Brady and 2 near Sonora, Texas, were used to validate model output for forage standing crop and quality, diet composition and quality, and sheep intake and production.
