COMPUTER-ASSISTED SIMULATION OF THE METABOLIC PROCESSES IN PIGS

R. Burlacu, C. Nitu

Abstract
The paper presents a mathematical model for calculating the rules of energy and protein in growing pigs and fattening. Were used functions and parameters in the literature (Whittemore, 1993; Kyriazakis and Emmans, 1992), including our results. Based on this model is shown a procedure for calculating the feed rations.

Key words: mathematical modelling, pig metabolic processes, computer simulation, energy requirement, protein requirement
