The objective of the DHM simulator is to compare strategies for controlling the health of the dairy cattle herd. By modifying livestock management actions, such as vaccination prevention, herd mating policy, use of treatment, etc., the biological functions of the animals and their interactions are modified, and ultimately, herd productivity is impacted. The different technical-biological fields implemented interact in the following way:
DHM provides health results (number of animals treated and deaths), dairy and reproductive performance, and economic margin. Feel free to test the application using the online demonstrator.
DHM will help you to show the importance of animal health in herd performance.
- If you are a teacher, DHM can help you to demonstrate the importance of animal health in herd performance.
- If you are developing a technological or managerial innovation, DHM is able to help you to evaluate its interest in principle.
- If you are a private actor in the field of farm animal health and interested to develop your own decision-making tool, become a partner and benefit from the scientific knowledge modelled in DHM and the recognised power of this simulation tool.
