Ratings and Reviews
Good little app, as graziers we like the feed budgeting side. Particularly handy in a cell grazing operation. However I would suggest a few possible improvements. An adaption to a property map would be handy as well as icons to track stock in paddocks. Possible a more handy guide on dM/ha for better and more accurate calculations on fees budgeting.
so close to perfect
so close to been perfect ......started to enter info - really simple well designed and set out but....... when it displays stock records and list paddocks and last date info head number it is in Adult Equivalents - great and you do need for records ......but what do you want to see when you look at your paddocks???? ... head number!!!!! not what is equivatent too. I want to know easliy what i have in each paddock at a glance. thanks for the app but wont continue using it
