Abstract

The present study suggested (1) a symmetry-like characteristic hidden in the hypothetic equation unifying the forage and ruminant growth analysis equations, and (2) the breakdown of symmetry-like characteristic and corresponding resultants. The monistic breakdown of symmetry-like characteristic, which was shown by inserting either forage factors or ruminant factors into parameters, gave the contrastive relationship where the autotrophic characteristic of forage RGR [relative growth rate] and the heterotrophic characteristic of ruminant RGR were derived as special cases. The dualistic breakdown of symmetry-like characteristic, which was shown by inserting both forage factors and ruminant factors into parameters, gave the interconvertible relationship between forage RGR and ruminant RGR.
