This study aims to simulate the behavior of a drug in farm animals, for which limited data is available. The drug is provided in the food for the animals, but only experimental data related to food intake over time for a set of pigs in a farm is available for the design of the simulation model. The main purpose of this study is to increase the understanding of the process of intake and absorption of drug in farm animals and to establish a framework that could be used in future applications addressing how to design farms in a more intelligent way or how to supply the necessary amount of drug that is efficiently protecting all the animals from disease while costs are minimized. This study is part of a research project conducted by researchers at the Veterinarian Faculty of the Universitat Autonoma of Barcelona (UAB) and that is expected to be published in several scientific journals.
