Goal Programming with Penalty Functions and Livestock Ration Formulation

  title={Goal Programming with Penalty Functions and Livestock Ration Formulation},
  author={T. Rehman and Caroline Tordoya Romero},
This paper contends that the conventional linear programmitu 3 paradigm commonly used for livestock ration formulation suffers from several inherent weaknesses. One such weakness is the mathematical rigidity that must be respected to meet the minimum nutritional requirements specified in the model, thus making the paradigm inflexible and unrealistic under many situations. Goal programming techniques, on the other hand, do not impose such rigid conditions and also allow consideration of several… CONTINUE READING
