MAP intermittent shedding dynamics with the villus model. Simulations with the villus model (Equation 2), with parameter values d = 0.04, M
0 = 10, b = 0.04, R
= 2.5. The parameter R
= 0.2 before day 630, between days 810 and 990, and between days 1170–1350, otherwise R
= 1.5. This reflects a cow with yearly calving and higher R
three months before and three months after calving.
