These mechanistic models could be further developed by including a process of delay of apoptosis, which could explain the higher capacity of dairy sheep, in comparison to dairy cattle, to recover good production levels in the event of temporary adverse environmental conditions.

Methods based on cross-correlations among Time Series, artificial neural networks and wavelet decomposition seem particularly appealing for these purposes. However, for the future, the greatest 27 effort in the mathematical modelling of lactation curves must be directed towards the mechanistic approach. The use of mechanistic models is rather infrequent in several sectors of applied biology, particularly in animal science. This is mainly due to the great difficulty in describing in mathematical terms the complex physiological processes that underlie the phenomenon under study.
