Abstract
The aim of the study was to investigate whether a pig growth model is suitable to be modified and adapted for broilers. As monogastric animals, pigs and poultry share many similarities in their digestion and metabolism, many structures (body protein and lipid stores) and the nutrient flows of the underlying metabolic pathways are similar among species. For that purpose, the InraPorc model was used as a basis to predict growth performance and body composition at slaughter in broilers. Firstly, the backbone of InraPorc was translated to Excel and examined whether the equations were suitable for growing birds by evaluating the parameters and model behavior. After d...
