FeedUtiliGene: a free tool for modelling the biological functions in pigs and poultry. FeedUtiliGene is a free software tool that demonstrate the modelling of biological functions in pigs and poultry. It contains 6 modules: a digestion module, a parameter estimation module, a nutrient partitioning module simulating energy, amino acid, and phosphorus utilization, a fatty acid module for pigs, a robustness module, and a stochastic module.
Pre-industrial prototype of precision feeder for growing pigs in restricted-feeding conditions Dr Nathalie Quiniou (IFIP) presents a pre-industrial prototype of precision feeder for growing pigs in restricted-feeding conditions. It was developed by IFIP and INRAE within the Feed-a-Gene project.
