Pehestat, a partner in poultry research and technical monitoring of poultry farms
What does Pehestat do?
Pehestat stands for Performance and Health Statistics. Our main objective can be deducted from this. Health parameters, house parameters and laboratory results from the industrial poultry sector are collected and analysed. Based on a thorough analysis, Pehestat can then give individual advice to the poultry farmers.
What does Pehestat offer?
In order to collect and analyse zootechnical data from farms, we use 2 tools: Porphyrio’s Smart Farm Assistant and Poultrack, our own developed software. Pehestat distributes the software and takes care of the technical follow-up. Based on the data collected and analysed within Poultrack and Smart Farm Assistant, Pehestat can provide individual advice to the poultry farmer. The result: a better production process, a healthy poultry herd and a safe end product.
Poultrack® was developed in-house and can be summarised as an online portal where all documents that belong to the mandatory company register are classified. These include administration-and-delivery-documents, contracts, feed coupons, laboratory results, slaughter reports … . The portal provides an administrative simplification for poultry veterinarians. With just a few clicks, you can retrieve that one document you are looking for. As a poultry farmer, you cannot acces the Poultrack® portal, but there is a direct link between this file management and the file manager within the Smart Farm Assistant of Porphyrio®
Pehestat is the only company in Belgium that distributesPorphyrio's® software. The Smart Farm Assistant is an online tool specifically for the poultry sector. It enables managers to closely monitor their animals and prevent imminent problems. Farm data such as feed and water intake, temperature, etc. can be imported into the Smart Farm Assistant through a link with the farm computer. When working with production cards, they can be imported as well. Because all data are collected online and remain available at all times, a farm manager can easily compare parameters within a flock or between the current flock and historical flocks. In this way, it helps to make strategic and well-considered decisions.
" So we provide an administrative simplification in which you can consult all your documents in one online environment. When we combine the health parameters, laboratory results and your barn data, we can provide you with advice tailored to your farm and, if you wish, benchmarking with similar poultry farms."
In addition to the distribution of software, the administrative simplification and the individual advice to poultry farmers, Pehestat is also involved in research projects. Thanks to its close contact with poultry farmers and poultry veterinarians, Pehestat is the ideal partner to collect research data in the field of activity.
In 2015, Pehestat, an independent SME, was founded. Its stakeholders are two Flemish veterinarian practices specialising in professional poultry. The close cooperation with these practices ensures an optimal interaction with the poultry sector.
