Farm Systems Modelling

The complex interrelationship among a large number of factors in a farming system makes it difficult to determine the benefit of implementing various management and technologies.Mathematical models are increasingly being used in research both independent and in conjunction with research results.Bio-economic models are capable of simultaneously addressing various dimensions of agriculture such as economic,亚博体育平台是黑彩environmental and sustainability.They can also make a major contribution to guiding experimental research in a variety of ways: these ranges from identification of critical gaps in knowledge or data through to interpretation of experimental results and the development of improved systems of production.Specific areas of research activity include:

  • Modelling milk processing efficiency to optimise both dairy farm efficiency and dairy product portfolio
  • Whole farm system modelling to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from grass-based dairy and beef production systems
  • Derivation of economic values for incorporation into national breeding objectives
  • Economic analysis of controlled farmlet experiments
  • Economic analysis of controlled farmlet experiments
  • Optimising milk production efficiency - heavy soils (Solohead),regional (Ballyhaise) and winter milk (Johnstown)
