Ditch notebook for cloud

Written by 

DOES THIS sound familiar? You write all your calvings into your notebook or on a scrap of paper, then when you go to enter it in the computer it’s missing – or you’re unsure whether one digit is a 6 or a 0. 

Problem solved, says CRV Ambreed. The company’s CRV Insight-Mobile herd recording application (app) enables data entry direct to cellphone from paddock or dairy shed.

CRV Insight-Mobile is easy to use for entering calvings, dry-offs, pregnancy tests, sales, culls, matings and treatments. 

Available for Android and Apple smartphones, the app enables all functions to be done offline and then synched directly to your records in the computing ‘cloud’ using your phone network or home wireless internet. 

CRV Insight-Mobile also allows viewing of data about cows – ID, status, sire and dam, herd test information and performance graphs. 

Says CRV product manager Angela Ryan, “Our farmers like the easy application and that it’s going to save them time entering information once, rather than writing things in notebooks for later entry into a computer.” 

Business development manager Steve Forsman says, “We understand first-hand the difficulties in maintaining herd records, and have developed the entire CRV Insight suite… to make it as easy as possible to keep herd records up-to date and easily accessible. 

“Clients can then turn this information into effective on-farm decisions.”
