About SimHerd A/S

SimHerd A/S provide computer based decision tools to dairy cattle farms. The tools include a web based application of the SimHerd simulation model, which is developed by Aarhus University. By using our tools, the farmer and the herd advisor can simulate alternative scenarios based on data and assumptions for the individual dairy herd. By showing the economic consequence of each scenario the tools can find potentials to improve herd performance and thereby improve the management decisions for the benefit of the individual farmer. The scope of the model include management decision on breeding, reproduction, feeding, health, production and barn facilities. The tools are readily available for dairy farms internationally.
