Summary
Abstract: The Integrated Farm System Model is a farm simulation model that predicts the
long-term performance, environmental impact and economics of dairy, beef and
crop farms over multiple years of weather. This model is an extension of the
Dairy Forage System Model (DAFOSYM), which includes a beef animal component and
the option of simulating crop production without an animal component. The
