SimHerd is a computer model of a dairy herd. For nearly three decades the model has been applied developed at Aarhus University. Analyses with SimHerd have been included in over 30 papers in scientific journals on animal health economics and herd management.
The SimHerd model has grown from being a simulation model used solely for research purposes, to be a well renowned business. Vets, breeding advisors and consultants in Denmark, Finland, Sweden and the Netherlands routinely use SimHerd as key part off their advisory.
The future for SimHerd is creating tailormade dashboards for advisors, farmers and consultants.
