Sustainability means meeting our own needs without compromising the ability for future generations to meet their own needs.

In addition to natural resources, we also need social and economic resources. Sustainability is not just environmentalism. Embedded in most definitions of sustainability we also find concerns for social equity and economic development.

Sustainable pig & poultry production does not focus solely on maximum productivity but rather includes animal welfare and protecting the environment. Consumers have additional concerns about nutritional content, flavor, traceability, regional production, GMO, social justice and more.

FarmCloud developed the Sustainability Dashboard with 3 main pillars in mind:

Production
Benchmarking between own Farms / FCR compared to what is expected.
Welfare
Are the animals comfortable within the right climate conditions? Do they have access to feed and water? Do they have a normal behavior? How is the level of Mortality?
Environment
Feed, Energy, Propane, Diesel consumption and Manure management.

These are some of the indicators FarmCloud uses to put a number on Sustainability from pig & poultry data... Real-time!
