Abstract: 

Better understanding makes a more efficient problem solving. Nutritional models provide insight to animal x feed interaction, therefore they are useful to evaluate nutritional concepts and to develop feeding strategies. There are only a few models freely available as a hands-on-software: therefore, our aim was to develop a software tool that integrates models predicting the nutrient partitioning in growing and fattening pigs.
