Total Bovine App
You can record any event as it happens with the Total Bovine App running on an Android Smartphone or Tablet PC.This imports the cattle data from Total Beef onto the mobile device to either review the status of each animal or input new events, such as calvings, drug treatments and weights as you do them outside. This data can then be synchronised with Total Beef via WiFi back on the office PC at anytime.
Electronic Weigher Interface Module
This Module imports weigh session files from Tru-Test, Gallagher and Iconix weighers into the Total Standard Cattle Module. From the imported weigh data, Daily Liveweight Gains are automatically calculated and a range of reports and scatter graphs can then provide in-depth analysis on the growth rates across individual animals.
BREEDPLAN Link Module
The BREEDPLAN Link Module enables you to send your pedigree calf registrations direct from the Total Standard Beef Module to any breed society that uses the BREEDPLAN Database system.
