The use of simulation modelling in the analysis of seasonal constraints in a goat production system in southern Tanzania


, : The use of simulation modelling in the analysis of seasonal constraints in a goat production system in southern Tanzania. Occasional Publication British Society of Animal Production ( 16): 186-187

The Texas A&M Sheep and Goat Simulation Model was calibrated to the environment, food supply, helminth challenge and genetic potential of the local goat of Tanzania. The model successfully reproduced the seasonal effects on performance. The effects of derestriction of food supplies and removal of seasonal helminth challenges were simulated.
