It is possible to use .GetObject() from the component in question and pass a ref to an instance of the type required. Would this solve the issue?
For example this can be done:

AvailableToAnimalType available = new AvailableToAnimalType();
Component somforstock = (Component) MySimulation.LinkByName("wheatpaddock.somforstock");
if (somforstock != null)
   somforstock.GetObject(somforstock.FullName + ".AvailableToAnimal", ref available);

It would be of great help if one could get nested array variables tagged with [output].  This would allow to access such variables using a manager script for example. An example of such variables (from SoilNitrogen) is: double[][] PatchNH4, which represents the amounts of NH4 in each layer for various (internal) patches.  I guess doubles would be the most common numeric type, but other types or even complex types may be required. As a hypothetical example: FOM[pool].C[layer], or even: Patch[k].FOM[pool].C[layer] - which is the carbon content for each layer. for each FOM pool, for each patch... Not sure how flexible the infrastructure can be, but enabling double[][] would be great.
