A mathematical model and computer programme for the economic assessment of traditional systems of production of milk and weaned calves


, : A mathematical model and computer programme for the economic assessment of traditional systems of production of milk and weaned calves. Tropical Animal Production 7(2): 144-168

From an analysis of the components of dual-purpose herds with cows milked and suckling their calves, a model and a computer program have been developed for calculating income, identifying factors limiting profitability, and showing the effect of changing constraints. The program (written in Basic for a Sinclair ZX81 computer with 16K RAM) is published in full, so that it can be tested by workers in the field and those engaged in livestock extension.

Whether or which blood heavy metal levels (BHMLs) influence elevating intraocular pressure (IOP) are unknown. We examined the relationship among blood lead, mercury, and cadmium levels, blood pressure (BP), and IOP and assessed whether BP mediates...

In human subjects, sensory resonances can be excited by subliminal atmospheric acoustic pulses that are tuned to the resonance frequency. The 1/2 Hz sensory resonance affects the autonomic nervous system and may cause relaxation, drowsiness, or se...
