Although not a traditional approach in investigating the effects of external influences on the biological composition of sheep, it is proposed that mathematical modeling and optimisation will prove to be a useful and powerful tool in this area. Research studies investigating the effects of different factors on the biological state of sheep are limited in their ability to monitor results in a whole-body manner. This research aims to provide a working model revolving around protein synthesis of sheep from the age of 12 weeks to approximately two years for simulation and optimisation purposes. Presented in this review is an analysis of previous work in this area, a description of methods undertaken to refine and improve the model, current problems being faced and the anticipated future directions of the study.
