Simulation of nutrient dynamics in the rumen of sheep and cattle considering the feed composition, level of feed intake and feeding frequency. 1. Model description



Simulation of nutrient dynamics in the rumen of sheep and cattle considering the feed composition, level of feed intake and feeding frequency. 1. Model description



Archiv für Tierernahrung 47(3): 255-270



A dynamic, mechanistic computer model was developed whereby digestion, outflow and pools of different nutrients in the rumen of sheep and cattle may be simulated and that responds to changes in feed composition, plane of nutrition and feeding frequency. The model consists of 35 flux- and 17 differential equations and works under cyclic steady-state conditions.
