Principle of operation

Data entry

  • Health situation : frequency of health and reproduction disorders
  • Technical characteristics of the farm
  • Price and economical values

Simulation results

  • Estimation of total economical losses of the health situation
  • Estimation of losses associated to each health disorder
  • Estimated losses (decreased output) do not include control costs (inputs from prevention and treatment). To estimate the total impact of health disorders, control costs should be added.


  • Calculation principles are described in the presentation and the bibliography available on line
  • It is possible to make several simulations for each farming in order to compare the observed situation with different expected situations.
