ThermoTool™, the application that assesses the risk of heat stress on livestock farms
Its main characteristics
- The tool is highly adaptable and reliable under the actual conditions of each livestock farm, based on temperature and hygrometry data from the international network of weather stations. What is more, ThermoTool® offers the option of adjusting the temperature/humidity indices manually, for greater accuracy of the heat stress diagnostic. This is especially useful for monogastric farms (pigs and poultry), because it is thus possible for them to adapt the tools to the actual conditions inside their buildings.
- ThermoTool® gives a 5-day forecast, which enables farmers to anticipate heat spikes and adapt animal feed and livestock management accordingly to obviate any negative repercussions (dips in performance, health, well-being).
- ThermoTool® is suitable for each animal species. Indeed, heat stress affects animal performance to varying degrees, depending on the species. To take this into account, over an above the Temperature Humidity Index (THI), ThermoTool® gives details of the level of risk of heat stress for each sub-category considered (dairy cattle, beef cattle, layers, broilers, etc.), by basing its calculations on risk level equations devised by species by the CCPA Group (R&D know-how and scientific bibliography).
- ThermoTool® offers farmers advice on practices and nutritional solutions suited to the risk level detected. With ThermoTool®, nutritional input and recommendations are properly reasoned according to risk of heat stress on each livestock farm (link to Heat Stress Management page).
