Description: iCow is a voice-based mobile application that will help farmers track the estrus stages of their cows helping them to manage their breeding as well as cow nutrition leading up to the calving day. This will be done via a series of voice prompts and SMS messages that will be sent to the farmer during the course of the 365 day cow cycle.
Farmers first register on the app and input relevant confirmed/known ‘cow’ dates. These include the cow ID, last date served, or last date calved.
iCow will send voice prompts to the farmer at intervals throughout the year, relevant to each specific cow at that particular time of it’s cycle. These prompts will not only be reminders, but also be educational. In some instances the prompts will be followed up with a message delivering important information.
This application helps farmers get the most of their cows and their farms.
