Abstract

The effect of environmental random fluctuations on the growth dynamics of individual animals is not captured by regression models and so we use stochastic differential equations (SDE). After a very brief introduction to SDE, we obtain the expected value and the standard deviation of the profit obtained by a farmer in raising and selling an animal as a function of the selling age. We apply the results to profit optimization using real weight data of cattle males of the Mertolengo breed.
