Modelling Phosphorus Metabolism in Farm Animals Experimental data obtained in tracer studies need to be resolved using compartmental modelling in order to quantify the amount of P present in different parts of the animal (pool sizes), the rates of exchange of P between pools (flow rates) and the loss and net utilization of dietary P (efficiency of utilization). A number of models have been proposed to represent P metabolism in animals, and those that have received most attention will be reviewed in the following sections.

However, this relationship is actually curvilinear, as the efficiency of utilization of dietary P decreases as P intake increases, according to a diminishing returns pattern.
