Happy Goats, our web app for vets, consultants and sheep and goat farmers offers you a complete toolkit to optimise the profitability of your managed farms, sustainably.
Happy Goats offers a model-based decision support toolkit for farmers, veterinarians and cooperatives to optimize the profitability of their sheep and goat farms under management. The app evaluates the current management situation and provides critical decision support, by simulating future management scenarios and their effects on profitability.
Happy Goats supports management decisions, based on a forecasting model with which you can simulate different future management scenarios for the farm and their profitability. This provides added security when planning either the management of the farm for the coming season or associated production resources.
Happy Goats is an web app which supports decision making for the more efficient management of sheep and goat farms. Happy Goats offers a complete toolkit to assist farmers, veterinarians & consultants, cooperatives and other industries (e.g. dairies) to optimise for productivity and farm profitability sustainably.
Happy Goats is based on a forecasting model which allows app users to simulate (create and assess) different future management scenarios and interpret their profitability results with the help of advice in plain language. This gives farm planners added security when planning either the management of the farm for the coming season or associated production resources.
The Happy Goats model evaluates all key farm parameters, such as: flock size, milk production goals, selling prices for milk and other products, purchase prices / costs for feed and other materials, working hours, feed management for different categories / groupings of animals according to their needs in energy and protein, grazing and much more. The app then visualizes the impact of your choices on each management scenario with charts, tables and intelligent commentary, to make optimization easier.
Yes, Happy Goats is designed to support multiple farms in parallel, as is usually the case with veterinarians and consultants, producer groups, cooperatives, big dairies and local dairy / milk zones. For these types of users we can provide special white-labeling services for them to publish and share farm scenarios reporting with partners.
Happy Goats is not based on an accounting/performance-tracking approach but on a forecasting model. Therefore, you will not use Happy Goats to track animal performance, breeding, nutritional management, vaccinations and other management practices over time. Note that Happy Goats is not a tool that can replace your ERP or business management software. Instead, it complements it with innovative production forecasting and optimization capabilities, as well as simulating annualised what-if scenarios for management, which you can save, export, revisit or modify at any time.
Happy Goats does not keep track of individual animals in the flock or their performance. Instead, it groups the animals into key groups according to their nutritional needs, in order to minimize the time required to enter the required data to evaulate a complete scenario.
