Growth patterns of Nellore vs British beef cattle breeds assessed using a dynamic, mechanistic model of cattle growth and composition



Growth patterns of Nellore vs British beef cattle breeds assessed using a dynamic, mechanistic model of cattle growth and composition



Nutrient digestion and utilization in farm animals: modelling approaches: 160-170



The dynamic model of post-weaning growth and composition developed by Oltjen et al. (1986) was reparameterized using a data-set of seven experiments with a total of 119 Nellore bulls where dry matter intake (DMI), metabolizable energy (ME) concentrations of the diets, and initial and final empty body (EB) compositions were available.
