Title: Advancing Technology in Swine Production: A Simulation Model of Swine Performance
Author: Watt, Dave; Little, Randy; Kaufman, Kenton; Harrold, Bob; Crenshaw, Joe
Description: This article details the impacts that computers and microcomputers can have in farm contexts. Recent advances in computer technology have paved the way for the development of simulation models for biological systems. Mathematical models have taken on a powerful new dimension. The implication is that the computer model, with environmental inputs (such as air temperature and air velocity at the animal level), can be used to predict and control the environment that best meets the needs of the animal and utilizes dietary and supplemental energy resources most efficiently.
