Herd management in sow keeping



Herd management in sow keeping



Knowledge based systems in agriculture Prospects for application Proceedings of the 2nd International DLG Congress for Computer Technology, Frankfurt, German Federal Re ic, 19-22 June 1988: 526-536



The primary design objective for data entry procedures in any management model is to construct an accurate representation of the circumstances and subjective beliefs that are required by the model. Almost equally important, however, is the goal of minimizing the time required to collect and enter data, to encouage use of such models. The paper describes key features of porkCHOP, a sow culling analysis model, and develops four strategies for entering herd data into the model.
