Batfarm Software

A support tool in the selection of environmental strategies in livestock operations

Batfarm software simulates the effect of BAT (Best Available Techniques) in particular farms, allowing the comparison of different BAT scenarios to help in the selection of the most appropiate environmental strategies in each case. Batfarm software is a free use tool that can be downloaded in this webpage and it is available in Spanish, French, English and Portuguese.

What types of farms?

The software considers swine, laying hens, broilers and dairy cattle farms and the entire animal production process: housing, grazing and manure management (storage, treatment and landspreading).

What types of BAT?

  • Nutritional strategies (adjusted protein and phosphorus)
  • Housing design
  • Manure management (frequent removal, drying, separation, aerobic treatment, anaerobic treatment, composting, covers and additives in storages, different equipment for landspreading, etc.)
  • Other BAT defined by users

Which are the main outputs?

  • Feed, water and energy consumption
  • Animal production (Live weight, eggs, milk)
  • Emissions (Ammonia, Nitrous Oxide and Methane)
  • Manure production and composition
  • Nutrients in soil (after landspreading)
  • Comparison of different scenarios
