K-State Releases New Record-Keeping APP For Cattle

Kansas State University agricultural economics and veterinary medicine staff have developed a record-keeping app for cattle producers that now is available for iPhones and Android devices. The CalfDex app is free to download and was designed for use in the field, even where cell phone service is not available.    

According to K-State livestock economist Ted Schroeder, who helped develop the app, CalfDex enables producers to maintain efficient and accurate calving, weaning and treatment records, which helps mitigate the risk of data loss or misplacement that can happen with paper records. It consists of five respective tabs for which users can choose to enter data, including “Calving,” “Processing/vaccination,” “Treatment,” “Weaning” and “Postweaning."
