The replacement optimizer presented comes from a joint development between Agrifood A.T. and the University of Lleida thanks to the UdL Impuls project. This optimizer is a technological solution that, according to the data of your farm, seeks the optimum time to replace a set of sows. It provides support to the farmer's decisions to optimally replace and helps the farm to obtain an optimum census with a maximum economic benefit according to the specific conditions of its farm. It also offers the possibility of analyzing how the production policies applied and the different production costs affect the economic benefit obtained.
The replacement optimizer has the following functionalities:
- Know the current state of our farm and the ideal to obtain maximum economic benefit.
- Obtain a ranking with economic avaluation of each sow individually.
- Possibility of analyzing different simulation scenarios by changing production policies.
- Support to the replacement using scientific criteria by the University of Lleida.
The optimizer is a useful tool for the correct sow replacement in farms, big or small. Its use will lead the farmer to replace the non-productive and reach an ideal census on his farm. It can be used as much for individual farmers who want to improve their production as for integrators with more farms and want to improve their overall production.
