A new app released earlier this week by the Mississippi State University Extension assists producers with important cattle management decisions.
Producers can access the MSUES Cattle Calculator for quick everyday calculations important for their operations. The app provides information on cattle reproduction, performance and management.
The app providing reproductive calculations is available for Apple’s iPhone and Ipad.
Reproductive calculations include: calving date, breeding date, number of days pregnant, and a breeding season calculator which provides calving and breeding dates based on a set breeding season.
Animal performance calculations include: Adjusted birth weight, weaning weight, and yearling weight, average daily gain and required gain.
Management calculation include: dosage calculations for dewormers and medicines given an animal weight and manufacturer's recommended dosage, frame score calculations, trailer stocking density, and yield grade.
