In the cow profile you can view and edit animal data and get an overview of events and messages per lactation. You can change the group, put the animal on the watchlist and add an event directly in the animal profile. In addition, you access the diagram in the cow profile. If you want to archive an animal, this is possible when editing the cow data.
The lactation history shows the different lactations of the animal as well as the corresponding smaXtec notifications and events. In the smaXtec App, you can easily add events such as heats, inseminations, drying-off to the lactation history.
You can add the following events in the cow profile as well as in the corresponding to-do lists:
In the To-do list as well as in the Animal list and Watchlist actions can be taken for several animals simultaneously. Simply select the affected animals and perform the desired action, such as changing groups.
With the app, you can also quickly and easily add new animals. The scan function makes the process much easier for you: You can scan the serial number directly from the bolus using your mobile phone camera. Then, you assign the bolus to an animal that has already been created upfront (e.g. via the data importer) or you create a new animal.
You can select which curves are to be displayed in the diagram. To do so, go to the menu by clicking on the three dots in the diagram navigation and select or deselect the desired values. For example, you can view only the current temperature values without distraction.
For better clarity, individual days in the iOS app are alternately highlighted in white and grey. In the Android app, the days are separated by a dash. So you can see at first glance for which day or for how many days you are currently viewing curves.
The settings are saved on your mobile device, which means that the next time you call up a chart, the last selected curves will be displayed.
For a better overview, you can also view charts in the horizontal format of your smartphone. In addition, you can now navigate from message to message using arrows and no longer have to scroll to do so.
Caution: Make sure that the orientation lock on your smartphone/tablet is deactivated.
