Team 25 Interim Report
The educational valueobtained from the research of this project
encompassed a global perspective of knowledge. We did not only learn
about beef cattle, we learned the qudeity of beef, and the nunteritional
values of feeds.
Other than our obvious goal of writing and formulating a computer
program to calculate the rate of gain. We would also like to encourage
the American public to consume more beef. beef is not only highly
nutritional, providing a vast amount of protein, but it is also a meat
not containing caproric acid. Caproric acid is a leading cause of
coronary heart disease. Stearic acid also in beef lowers colesterol
and blood pressure. Does this mean beef is actully good for
you or are we a society living in the pretenses of the past.
Beef cattle also provide income for many New Mexican citizens.
Ranchers, feed lot owners, ranch hands , and feed suppliers, and health
professional all rely on beef cattle and the production of them. It the
beef cattle industry was nnot part of the New Mexican economy, how would
these indvidual support themselves and their famlies?
US beef consumption has continued to grow. there was a slight
slump in 1973 which did have an affect on the beef industry but it still
tops the chart in America's most purchased rec meat.
In relationship to our project the beef industry is a major part
due to the fact the prgram would not be necessary if beef wasn't a large
empire in the United States.
Our research has also lead us to discover a common forula for
solving the question, "how much has calf A, gained over the course of X
amount of days?" The program will have areas for the imput
of current weight of a given subject and number of days the subject has
Another benefit from the creation of this project individuals
will be able to sucessfully calculate how long it will take an animal to
rech a certain wight. To do this divial the desired weight, by the
current ratre of gain. Of course this will all hinge onthe concept
the individaul will not be exposed to diesease or illness.
other than the appeicable knowlege gained through our research
we have also been aborted the wonderful and ever-amazing relities from
being moved with such a worth while project.
the supercomputing challenge has given us an opportunity to broaden
our horizons and rech out to embrace a new era in tecnology. this
will allow us to succeed in becoming productive individuals in a rapid
moving socity we appreciate this opportunity participation provides
and cannot wait to future our pre-professiional knoiwledge of this degree
pertaining to this subject.
In closing we would like to say our research has been beneficial
and detremental to the earning learning process. Our research has
broadened our horizons and will lead to a better tomorrow for all agriculturist
current and future. We also owe the SCC a huge dept of gratitude
for this opportunity. therefore we salute the challenge fro such
a wonderufl and exciting educational program allowing us to grasp the brase
ring of succes.
