How can I estimate the impact of heat stress in my farm without measuring tools?
To help you make the right decisions, CCPA has developed the Thermo®Tool application to objectively estimate the risk of heat stress and the economic losses generated during hot periods.
The main functions of Thermo®Tool
- Estimate the risk of heat stress from an indicator: the THI (Temperature Humidity Index).
- Benefit from risk forecasts for the next 5 days in order to take the necessary precautions.
- Evaluate the performance losses related to these heat periods and the economic consequences that result from them.
- Benefit from species-specific advice.
For a finer approach, it’s possible to connect sensors to Thermotool to find out the THI of your livestock building.
For ruminants, it is possible to correct the THI by integrating the air speed, which significantly improves the accuracy of the technical-economic consequences.
