New app for live­stock elec­tronic ID use

Irish Examiner - Farming - - TECHNOLOGY FOCUS -

Kingswood Com­put­ing has launched an EID (elec­tronic iden­ti­fi­ca­tion) app for their Kingswood Herd (PC-based) and Kingswood Mo­bile (phone-based) users.

This app will con­nect di­rectly to the many EID read­ers with Blue­tooth con­nec­tiv­ity, that are now be­com­ing avail­able, along­side the grow­ing up­take of EID live­stock iden­ti­fi­ca­tion tags.

Ini­tially the app is tar­geted at dairy and beef farming op­er­a­tions, where record­ing speed is crit­i­cal, such as preg­nancy scan­ning and an­i­mal weigh­ings.

Even­tu­ally Kingswood users will be able to use the app for all record­ing events, in­clud­ing calv­ings, heats and ser­vices, and an­i­mal reme­dies.

Kingswood Com­put­ing say Derek and Mary Deane, well-known suck­ler and beef farm­ers in Co Car­low, have been us­ing a pre­lim­i­nary ver­sion of the App, to trans­fer their cat­tle weights into their Kingswood Herd sys­tem, speed­ing up the sire and dam anal­y­sis by Kingswood Herd, once the an­i­mal weights are trans­ferred in.
