Active control of the growth of broiler chickens and pigs has potential benefits for farmers in terms of improved production efficiency, as well as for animal welfare in terms of improved leg health in broiler chickens. In this work, a differential recurrent neural network (DRNN) was identified from experimental data to represent animal growth using a nonlinear system identification algorithm. The ...
