New app for livestock electronic ID use
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.
