SimHerd Expert 

SimHerd Expert is our full model, that can calculate all aspects of a dairy herdIt can be used to quantify the effect of different management improvements or investments. The model simulates each cow in the herd over a 10-year period, this is repeated 100 times to ensure reliable results. Associations between milk production, health and reproduction are accounted for in the model, which gives a unique whole herd approach to advisory.  

All calculations are based on the herds own key figures, so the results are unique for each farmer. SimHerd Expert calculates the herd profiby projecting the effect of the proposed changes on both production, herd dynamics and economics.

Climate impact calculator 

The focus on climate has increased immensely in recent years and demands that the agricultural sector decrease emissions are growing. For our dairy farmers, it is especially methane emissions that are desirable to decrease. Therefore, we now include the impact on methane emission in all out calculations. Over the coming years we will expand the model to not only cover methane emissions, but other important areas regarding climate impact.
