Golden Leaf in Animal husbandry
An expert commission judged the submitted products in the Innovation Award among others on innovative content, economic sustainability, quality improvement and functionality from the user's point of view. PigExpert, pig management software from the Dutch company AgriSyst, is distributed in Italy by AgriSyst dealer Hermitage Italia Technologies. Gianluca Demontis, consultant pig management of Hermitage Italia, explains what Pig Expert does: “With PigExpert it is possible to track and trace the end product from semen to slaughterhouse. The program contains all the necessary data to manage the pig farm real time and to focus on economic and technical results. The input is recorded directly in the barn via a mobile device. Double registration belongs therefore to the past and the chance of errors is smaller.”
“But the biggest gain is in the complete package of analysis, reporting and support that the we offer”, Gianluca continues. “We are truly unique in the service that comes with the program.” PigExpert provides a weekly report and a team of data experts is always available to support the pig farmer. The graphical representation of results and actions in a dashboard helps the pig farmer to work goal-oriented and to plan activities in a well-organized manner. Gianluca is very proud that PigExpert is awarded with a Golden Leaf. “It shows that with PigExpert we offer an innovative management program for pig farmers, which really helps them in their daily work and improving the technical and economic results at the farm.”
