The Dairy Effluent Storage Calculator is a software tool to help determine the dairy effluent storage requirements for an individual dairy farm in New Zealand.
This document has been written by DairyNZ as a supporting resource to assist those using the DESC software to understand how to correctly use the tool and how to correctly interpret the outputs.
The document provides explanation of the software and the assumptions behind it and gives step by step guidance for using the DESC to calculate storage requirements.
Please note: This current training resource relates to a new solids version of the DESC that has had its release delayed. We expect the new version of the DESC to be available soon.
