Computerized Herd Record and Analysis System
 

Collecting Data using an Android Device

Overview

The CowCalf Android app can be found and installed from the Google Play Store. Search for CowCalf, and purchase and download the application to the device. The CowCalf application is designed to work with any android tablet or phone running OS 3 or newer, devices running previous versions of the Android operating system may or may not work.

The Mobile CowCalf Android application will work as either a stand-alone program, or in conjuction with the CowCalf5 Herd Record Management Program. If you will be utilizing it with CowCalf5, then the application will need internet capabilities to transfer data between the PC program and the mobile application and back again. No internet is needed to utilize the application or change/add herd data.

Only one herd can be stored and accessed on the Mobile Application at once. Though multiple herds can be accessed by utilizing the internet and cloud storage.
