September 11, 2014
As part of The Samuel Roberts Noble Foundation's focus on advancing agriculture, the organization has released a mobile recordkeeping app as part of its Junior Beef Excellence Program.
The app will provide FFA and 4-H students with the ability to capture key pieces of information from the field as they raise livestock for competition.
While the app is designed for students, it can be used by any producer.
"We wanted to create an app that would provide anyone the ability to track animal performance out in the field, in the palm of their hand," says Bryan Nichols, Junior Beef program coordinator. "A student or producer can create an animal profile for which they wish to keep records, whether it be cattle, hogs, sheep, etc."
