CCPA proposes a new sensor for its Thermotool application

Created since April 2015 by CCPA Group, Thermotool application allows ruminants, pigs and poultry breeders to calculate and evaluate the heat stress risk to their animals, depending on the temperature and the ambient humidity level.

Until now, Thermotool application was downloading the data from the nearest weather station, thanks to the GPS of the phone. From now on, the application can be connected to a sensor install in the breeding building.

Interest of this new development

 

Thermotool application detect the sensors as soon as it opens, within a radius of 50meters and offers the THI captured in the livestock building.

"It allows to have the real conditions that the animals undergo in the breeding. Often stress conditions are higher inside the livestock building," says Jean Pascard, Product Manager in charge of the ThermoTool application." The information retrieved from the nearest weather station is complementary. In particular, they allow a 5-day forecast."

Intuitive interface for breeders

 

Thermotool application has been designed with a simple and visual interface so that the breeders can easily identify stress risk level in the herd

There are four possible indicators:

  • Green: The animals are not in a situation of heat stress.
  • Orange: The animals are in a moderate heat stress situation.
  • Red: The animals are in a heat stress situation.
  • Bordeaux: The animals are under a significant heat stress.

Obtain some nutritional advices based on the level of heat stress detected in the farm,this is the goal of Thermotool.The breeders adopt the best behavior to improve the comfort and health in the livestock.
