Cattle herd dynamics: An integer and stochastic model for evaluating production alternatives uri icon

abstract

  • Presents a cattle herd simulation model which is time dynamic, stochastic, non-optimizing & integer and permits the evaluation of herd performance under alternative production regimes; discusses the analytical background to the biological relationships represented in the model, describes detailed algorithms used in the computer simulation model, and outlines necessary steps for the application of the model
