Pig growth simulation models are used to determine feeding strategies that improve profitability on commercial farms. For a given farm, the number of diets fed, their energy, amino acid content, the quantity fed and the diet period can vary, thus giving a very large number of possible feeding strategies (F, as many as 1050). Adding nonlinear optimisation methods to a growth model allows us to find an Fyielding the maximum for a given objective function, usually the gross margin per pig or per… Expand
