The simulation of growth rate in grazing sheep a comparison of the national research council and agricultural research council feeding standards



The simulation of growth rate in grazing sheep a comparison of the national research council and agricultural research council feeding standards



Agricultural Systems 7(3): 189-198



Models, based on the source data and assumptions of the National Research Council (1975) and the Agricultural Research Council (1965)/Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries (1975) feeding standards for sheep, are described. In comparison with observed liveweight changes in grazing sheep, both models were generally able to identify situations in which gain occurred but overestimated rates of gain. Both systems appear to underestimate the maintenance energy requirement of grazing sheep.
