What are cow manager apps?

Cow manager apps are a great example of how technology and farming can work together to improve your business and daily life. 

Cattle management software aims to streamline your farm, logging all the essential information in one place rather than scattered in different locations for you to trawl through.

Many apps cover everything from herd performance and comparing prices to medicine distribution and weight management.

We’re Breedr, the home of the world’s leading individual animal app for cattle and sheep. Our app offers everything you need for managing your livestock, farm and finances from the palm of your hand. Want to learn more about how you can benefit from using a cow management app? Keep reading.


Everything you can do with a cow manager app

Although a big part of our farm management software focuses on cattle, we cater for sheep farmers and general farm management too. Here’s a rundown of the benefits you could access through Breedr.


Quick weighing

Make weighing your livestock stress-free and easy with our Crush Mode. Simply connect Breedr to your weigh scales and EID readers via Bluetooth, then the data will go straight into your app.

You’ll then be able to analyse the data, access individual growth rates, determine the current market value, time on-farm and withdrawal status for each animal. Weigh a sheep in as little as two seconds and a cow in 10, speeding up the process and saving you valuable time.


Virtual medicine cabinet

Make time-consuming medical paperwork a thing of the past with our app — it’s never been easier to keep on top of your medical records. Simply scan the QR code on your medicine bottles, log treatments and update your animal records, cabinet levels and Farm Assurance reports.

What’s more, you can use the collated data to your advantage. It’ll be much easier to analyse your medicine usage and identify any opportunities or areas for improvement.


Breeding tools

Of course, when it comes to your livestock, breeding is a big deal. We get that, which is why we have a host of capabilities to help you along the way.

  • Log a birth in seconds, even without an internet connection - You can assign it to the correct dam/sire and submit all future movements.

  • Discover your breeding values - Optimise and improve your genetics by analysing your actual breeding values.

  • Accelerate herd and flock fertility and output - Use our tools to track your service period and growth rates better.

  • Compare your herd to national benchmarks - Easily compare your farm against national Breedr farms, AHDB guidelines and local farms to understand how you’re performing.


More than just livestock management

The possibilities don’t end there. There’s so much more to the Breedr app than livestock management. Map your farm, track your grazing, move groups, maintain compliance, buy and sell livestock, and access cashflow services.
