Overview

Types
(1) Disease Dynamics
Overview

The Davis Animal Disease model is a spatial, stochastic, individual-animal-based model that includes thirteen herd types: small and large beef herds; small, medium and large dairies; small and large calf/heifer raising operations; small and large swine operations; goat flocks; sheep flocks; backyard herds; and saleyards. The model simulates direct and indirect contacts among all types of herds, based upon data from the literature, as well as surveys and expert opinion.

Question

This model can address questions of disease spread, economic impact, and mitigation/control strategies
