Cleaned up the icons in various places and simplified the settings screen (I merged it with the main menu).
Ratings and Reviews
Although clearly designed for cows, actually a very good app for pigs and sheep, designer if very receptive to suggestions and speedy replies! Once all you individual sheep are logged into (maybe scope here for linking to electronic ear tage recorders john) With a few tweeks this could be five + stars easily, there is no syncing between devices as yet and a notes facility needed when recording an action (event) for more detail and a diary reminder for repeat treatments etc would be ace but it is sooo smoke to use and very useful withdrawal period facility and you can use the field facility to identify between mobs (flocks) of sheep. Then events recorder can identify additional feeding requirements, lameness, lambing problems and scanning results all of which are recorded to the animal or across multiple animals if you have say..... Given calcium to two ewes in a field of 50 or identified a lame ewe and had to trim or spray you can create an event on your i phone and you can see if there is reoccurring problem immediatey......John when you work out how to read the electronic ear tag on the iphone so you don't have to read the tag then we are really talking!
This is a brilliant bit of kit. To have all of your herd's details immediately to hand and to be able to put in medication details instantly with automatic withdrawal periods is priceless. Well done and worth every penny
Is a real godsend when you are out in a muddy field and the vet wants to know who the beast's mother was! Not quite perfect but being improved. Bargain price considering limited market.
