Pickthall Sheep Rustler ,

Could be useful....

A simple database, obviously designed for cows (the clue's in the name!) but with a few minor changes it would have been useful for us sheep farmers too....
1) Allow the user to edit the breed name or add their own. Mines a Castlemilk Moorit please.....
2) It's not possible to enter a sire or dam that is outside the flock (ahem, I mean herd.)
3) An export facility (CSV etc.) would be useful.
4) Sorry to winge, hill farming doesn't pay much and £9.99 for the full version is a bit steep compared to other much more sophisticated iphone apps...

It's worth a try though if you are looking for a handy database of your flock (erm, I mean herd) that you can keep in your pocket...

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
