FARMDYN - a dynamic mixed integer bio-economic farm scale model

You are here:ILR→ Course overview→ Research→ FARMDYN - A dynamic mixed-integer single farm bio-economic model

Overview:

FARMDYN provides a flexible, modular template to simulate farms with different branches (dairy, mother cows, beef fattening, pig fattening, piglet production, arable farming, biogas plants). Main characteristics of the model are:

  • Fully dynamic, simulations typically cover several decades, alternatively comparative-static or short run version
  • Integer variables capture Returns-to-scale in investments (machinery, buildings; based on convex combinations over a concave set) and indivisibilities in labour use
  • Selected farm management decisions (e.g. feeding, manure management, labour use) depicted with a sub-annual temporal resolution, partially bi-weekly
  • Deterministic or stochastic programming version. The latter treats all variables as state dependent, allows for sceneario tree reduction and covers different risk measures (value at risk, MOTAD ...)
  • Farm labour, machinery and stable use are modelled in rich detail
  • Arable cropping can be differentiated by system (conventional or organic), tillage type and intensity
  • For dairy farming, the model distinguishes several herds by number of lactations and lactation phase
  • Beef fattening can be depicted in several phases, linked to different grazing options, considering cross-breeding and sexing
  • The machinery park is available in different mechanization levels
  • Detail in grassland management (number of cuts, bales/silo/hay etc.)
  • Highly differentiated modules for nitrogen fate, while covering German legislation on fertilizer use
  • A range of economic, social and environmental indicators, including LCA derived ones
Overview

The model is currently parameterized for German conditions using highly detailed farm planning data provided by KTBL in combination with farm structural statistics. It offers a complementary approach to other farm scale models used in the institute such as the farm group models integrated in CAPRI or FADN based farm-scale progamming models which both are comparative-static, calibrated against observed farm programs with Positive Mathematical Programming while being far less detailed with regard to technology, and not comprising explicit investement decisions. FarmDyn can be calibrated against given farm programs using a bi-level programming approach, treating price, crop yields, labour and other inputs demands as uncertain.

The model is realized in GAMS, solved with the industry MIP solver CPLEX, linked to a Graphical User Interface realized in GGIG and hosted on a Software Versioning System. Design of experiments, building on R routines directly called from GAMS, can be used in combination with farm structural statistics to systematic sensitivity analysis by simulating different farm realizations (assets, farm branches) and boundary conditions such as input and output prices or emisisons ceilings using a computing server to solve several instances in parallel. That approach has e.g. been used to estimate a statistical meta model for Marginal Abatement Costs of Green House Gases from dairy farms. Code development and testing follows agreed upon guidelines.

Projects and development:

The application and extension of FARMDYN is part of several ongoing research activities at ILR, in cooperation with international and national partners.

  • FARMDYN is used in the Excellence Cluster Phenorob to simulate novel farm management options related to robotics (2020-204).
  • In the context of the project Transform2Bio, FarmDyn assesses transfromation pathways to a more sustainable bio-economy at the regional scale.
  • FARMDYN is used in the H2020 project MIND-STEP Modelling Individual Decisions to Support the European Policies Related to Agriculture, 2019-2023) by the team in Bonn and a team at WUR, Wageningen, to assess impacts of different policies and to inform a meta-modelling approach to be integrated in Agent Based Models.
  • FARMDYN is used in the H2020 project LIFT (Low-Input Farming and Territories - Integrating knowledge for improving ecosystem-based farming, 2018-2022) by the team in Bonn and a team at INRA, Rennes, to compare different farming systems with regard to sustainability indicators.

  • The SustainBeef (Co-definition and evaluation of SUSTAINable BEEF farming systems based on resources non edible by humans, 2017-2020). project assessed option to improve gras-based beef cattle systems, for several case studies in Germany, France, Italy and Ireland.
  • The project "Modeling structural change and agricultural nutrient flows across scales in regions of North Rhine-Westphalia", 2016-2019, financed by MKULNV (Ministry for environment and agriculture, state of North Rhine-Westphalia) analyzed nutrient exchanges between farms in regions of North Rhine-Westphalia based on the combination of FARMDYN with bio-physical and agent based modeling. The project was carried out by the Economic Modeling group and chair of Resource and Environmental Economics at ILR and the Institute of Crop Science and Resource Conservation (2016-2018).
  • In the project Understanding spatial interactions and structural change in the dairy production chain with a dynamic regional Agent Based Model covering dairy farms and dairy processing, 2015-2018, financed by the German Science Foundation DFG, dual profit functions for different farming systems were estimated from FARMDYN simulations to source an Agent Based Model (2015-2018).

The original model version was developed in the project "The relation between indicators for the crediting of emission rights and abatement costs - a systematic modeling approach for dairy farms", financed by the German Science Foundation and carried out by Karin Holm-Müller, Wolfgang Britz, Bernd Lengers and David Schäfer. In the context of the pdh-thesis of Johanna Budde, a first version of the pig module was developed (2012-2013).

Farm toy tractors have been on the market since the 1920's. In the 1970's they became the focus of many serious collectors. Today the hobby is enjoyed by children and adults alike. There are many reasons given for collecting farm toys. Modelers create miniature farm scenes, and serious collectors focus on everything from one brand of tractors to whatever catches their eye. Invariably the most common reason for collecting farm toys is nostalgia. Often for the machinery that was used on the family farm.


Most toy tractors and farm implements are mass produced die-cast models manufactured by Ertl, Scale Models and Spec-Cast. Other companies such as Little buster Toys produce farm toys that work in conjunction with the tractors made by Ertl and Scale Models.


The most popular toy tractor brands available are John Deere, Case IH (International Harvester, Case & Farmall), New-Holland/Ford and AGCO (Allis Chalmers, Massey Ferguson, Massey Harris, Minneapolis-Moline, Gleaner, White and Oliver). Collectors are not limited to farm toy tractors alone, many implements and accessories are also available. Barns, grain bins and even animals can be found to recreate a whole farm.


The four most common versions of farm toy replicas are the: shelf model, collector edition, precision and pedal tractor. These versions vary by length of manufacture and detail of the model. A shelf model tractor is usually manufactured over a period of several years and is not as valuable as a limited or collector edition toy. The limited or collector editions are limited to a one time order or only a specific quantity are produced which raises its value. Over the last couple of decades the collector edition tractors have also been called: limited editions, dealer editions, and prestige series tractors. Precision series tractors are the best of the best and are highly detailed with wires, hoses, hitches, movable levers, detailed engines, and are released in a numbered series. The precision line of tractors are popular with many serious collectors. Last but not least the pedal tractors are the ride-on versions of new and vintage tractors, and are often handed down thru a family as keepsakes.


The most common scales of the farm toy replicas are 1/8, 1/16, 1/25, 1/32, 1/43, 1/50, 1/64 and 1/87. Most U.S. farm toy hobbyists collect the 1/16 scale model which is a model that measures one inch for every sixteen inches of a real tractor or implement. This translates to a model or a standard tractor that is roughly five to seven inches tall and seven to ten inches long, however a 4WD or large modern tractor replica will be larger than this. The scale that is most popular in Europe and is also sold in the US is 1/32 scale. A collector with limited display space may choose to collect 1/64 scale which is the most common smaller version. As a result of their popularity the widest selection of toy tractors and implements available in the US are the 1/16 and 1/64 scales.

I again turned to the mirror and looked my reflection in the eyes, smiling sourly - Well, did your friend take a walk. - and stuck out my tongue to myself. My soul was somehow nervous, and the feeling of a naughty child, who is pleased that he had done something unlawful and now expects punishment.

Kicking off my shoes and dropping my purse on top of them, I spanked my bare feet into the bathtub.

Now discussing:

We began to dance in the semi-darkness with slow music. collapsed in an armchair, and his friends danced slow dances with me, and he looked and smiled. Then they began to paw at me, pulled up the dress, threw my boobs out of my bra, pulled my panties off.
