Models to capture the potential for disease transmission in domestic sheep flocks

Publication year: 2012 Source: Preventive Veterinary Medicine, Available online 16 February 2012 David Schley, Sophie Whittle, Michael Taylor, Istvan Zoltan Kiss Successful control of livestock diseases requires an understanding of how they spread amongst animals and between premises. Mathematical models can offer important insight into the dynamics of disease, especially when built upon experimental and/or field data. Here the dynamics of a range of epidemiological models are explored in order to determine which models perform best in capturing real-world heterogeneities at sufficient resolution
