I am new user, what should I do?

  • Create Site

Site is where your farm is located. Before starting another activity, you have to create Site data first. Steps to add Site explained here

  • Create Flock

After creating the site, you can add a cage (flock) at the site. Steps to add Flock explained here

  • Start Cycle

Cycle is a period of raising chicken from DOC received at site to the harvest time. After adding a flock at a certain site, you can start the production cycle. By starting the cycle, you can record the production plan. Steps to start cycle explained here

  • Setting Production Standard

Production standards are the standard value to measure chicken production in a cycle. Production standard including body weight, FCR, Water and Vitality. When daily input is higher/ lower than standard, we will inform the problem to you at Dashboard. You can add/ edit provided default standards, so you can adjust the standard to meet your expectations. Steps to edit or add standard explained here

  • Activity Input

Input is a daily recording of your chicken production. You can record feed, water, mortality, average weight, disease, litter additive and harvest in input. You can record input daily based on activity happening at the farm. This data will be shown at the Production Cycle dashboard, input data will also be compared to standard value. This feature can be accessed in the Input Your Activity menu. Steps to add daily input explained here

  • Dashboard

Dashboard is the latest report about chicken production inside farms. You can see problems happening on the farm at Dashboard. Explanation about dashboard here

  • Report

Report is a summary of your production activity. There are 3 types of report: cycle report, interval report, and Input by type report. You can download the report in PDF format. Steps to generate report explained here

  • End Cycle

At the end of your chicken rising period, you can end the activity by performing an end cycle. When you end the cycle, you can generate a Cycle report in the Report menu. You can start a new cycle after ending the current cycle. If your cycle is supposed to end but you did not perform an end cycle, your cycle will automatically end. Steps to end cycle explained here

How to use Dashboard

In Dashboard there are 2 tabs that you can access Overall and Production Cycle.  Overall dashboard summarizes overall problems happening in your flock. Production cycle dashboard shows your input activity and compares it to standard value (based on chicken strain). 

Steps to access Overall dashboard are:

    • Open Monitor Your Dashboard menu, click Overall tab
      • In Overall dashboard you will see 2 charts:
        • Weekly Performance Problem: This chart summarizes your flock’s performance problem. You can see which flock failed to achieve the performance’s goal. The chart will show you which flock has the most problems. You can also see the details by clicking flock at Troubled flock list.
        • Real Time Climate Major Anomaly Frequency: This chart summarizes all climate anomaly incidents in one day that occur from all of your flock based on local time zone. The chart will show you which flock has the most anomaly incident. You can also see the details by clicking flock at Troubled flock list. This chart will not be available if you did not install a device in your flock.

Steps to access Production cycle dashboard are:

      • Open Monitor Your Dashboard menu, click Production Cycle tab
      • Choose an active flock
      • Under the chosen flock, you will see tables that show current condition of your chicken production (data is cumulative, from day 0 to current day). Your data will be compared to the standard based on chicken strain.
      • You can also see your input summary in a week. The data will be presented in a graph. Click on Period button to show this data
      • You can search for input data from another week by searching the week on Week drop down then click Search

When you see the dashboard, you may question the source of the data. This picture compares the Production cycle dashboard interface with the Input tabs. The arrows and box show you the source of dashboard data.

      • Weekly Feed Card

Actual Weekly Feed= Total feed intake of your flock in a week. This data is calculated from your feed input in a week.

Ideal Weekly Feed= Feed intake standard calculated from your FCR and Body Weight standard. The value describes your flock’s feed needs in a week. You can use this value as your guidance or feed estimation. Ideal Weekly Feed calculated from feed needed to achieve Ideal FCR and Body Weight. 

Example: Ideal FCR in week 2 is 0.65 and Ideal Body Weight in week 2 is 800 gram/ bird. Ideal FCR in week 3 is 0.86 and Ideal Body Weight in week 3 is 1000 gram/ bird. Population at week 2 is 900 birds, meanwhile population at the beginning of week 3 (age of 15 days) is 880 birds. Ideal Weekly Feed for week-3 is:

Feed needs/ bird= ((0.86 * 1000) – (0.65 * 800)) = 340 gram/ bird

Ideal Weekly Feed= Feed needs/ bird * Population at the beginning of week 3= 340 gram/ bird * 880 bird = 299200 grams = 299.2 kg 

Actual Cumulative Feed= Total feed intake of your flock from day-0 to current date. This data is calculated from your feed input.

Ideal Cumulative Feed= Feed intake standard calculated from your FCR and Body Weight standard. The value describes your flock’s feed needs from day-0 to current date. You can use this value as your guidance or feed estimation. Ideal Cumulative Feed calculation:

Example: Ideal Weekly Feed at week 1 is 123 kg, meanwhile Ideal Weekly Feed at week 2 is 245 kg. Your ideal cumulative feed is:

Ideal Cumulative Feed= Ideal Weekly Feed Week 1 + Ideal Weekly Feed 2 = 123 kg + 245 kg = 368 kg

      • Water Card

Water intake= Total water intake of your flock that you input in the water input menu.

Ideal water intake= Water intake standard based on Water Standard. You can use this value as parameter whether chickens are over drinking or drink less

      • Population card

Population= current chicken population inside your flock. Population decreases because of harvest or mortality and harvest. The formula is: 

Population= DOC – Harvest – Mortality

Type= DOC Type/ strain that you use in the cycle. This data obtained when you Start Cycle

DOC= DOC population you input when you start a cycle

Harvest= total harvested chicken calculated from your harvest input. 

Mortality= total chicken’s death because of sickness and quality issue. Mortality data calculated from your mortality input

      • Health Card

Disease= total disease incident based on disease input

Medicine, Vitamin and Vaccine= total Medicine, Vitamin and Vaccine used calculated from your Additive input

Litter condition= your latest litter condition. Litter condition can change based on your litter input. 

      • Harvest Card

Data from harvest input

      • Performance Card

Performance card shows your flock’s performance based on the most commonly used parameters (FCR and Average Weight). Your flock performance is also compared to the ideal value that you set when you start the cycle (FCR and Body Weight). You will be able to evaluate your flock’s current performance to the ideal condition you planned to achieve. 

Performance parameter explained below:

Current Weekly FCR: feed conversion ratio (FCR) of your actual input. The less FCR you have, the better performance you achieve. The formula is: 

Current Weekly FCR= Actual Cumulative Feed/ (Total harvest weight + (Average weight * Population))

Case example: You start a cycle with 5000 birds of DOC strain COBB. After 28 days, you add 4500 kg of feed, your chicken average weight is 950 gram/ bird. At the age of 27 days you harvested 200 chickens with total weight 150 kg and you experience 5 dead chickens. Your current weekly FCR is:

FCR= (1200 x 1000 gram)/ ((150 x 1000 gram) + (950 gram x (5000 – 200 – 5)) = 0.96

Ideal Weekly FCR: feed conversion ratio (FCR) your flock should achieve. If your Current Weekly FCR is higher than Ideal Weekly FCR, your flock may perform poorly. Ideal weekly FCR is calculated weekly, so you may experience undervalued or overvalued Current Weekly FCR at the beginning of the week. You can evaluate your flock performance by comparing current and ideal value of FCR. 

Current Average Weight: Chicken weight sampled from your flock. Average weight calculated from your weight input. The formula is: Average Weight= Total Sample Weight/ Number of Sample 

Ideal Average Weight: ideal chicken weight you set at setting menu. You can evaluate your flock performance by comparing Current Average Weight to Ideal Average Weight. You will be able to understand whether your flock is underweight or overweight.
