A large number of qualitative details has been collected on many facets of pig biology over fresh years, in parts reminiscent of genetics, development and body structure, and welfare. it really is now well known that there's a have to use those info as a foundation for the advance of quantitative types, on the way to extra enhance functionality and productiveness. This has been completed in a few parts, particularly body structure, yet no prior test at bringing jointly and integrating this fabric has been made. This ebook, written by way of prime researchers from Europe, the united states and Australasia, fills that hole. It starts off with descriptions of the animal, its feed and its atmosphere. specialists then speak about the most recent mechanistic mathematical types which describe specific physiological tactics and take note of the most exterior impacts. the gathering concludes with a overview of the benefits and implications of a quantitative method of pig biology. the information awarded can be crucial examining for animal scientists, rather utilized physiologists, with an energetic curiosity in pigs and also will have relevance to investigate on different cattle.

Conclusions Vastly different performance testing and selection programmes have resulted in substantially different genetic populations of pigs. To understand the biological changes made as a result of selection, genetic evaluation must be directed towards quantifying the underlying biological traits. The biological parameters needed to define pig growth are protein accretion potentials, lipid accretion potentials, partitioning of energy between protein and lipid growth, energy requirements for maintenance and energy intake potentials.
