Cows aren’t stationary. We believe the products farmers use to track them shouldn’t be either.

Lactologic wanted to help dairy farmers improve profitability and sustainability while making it easier to monitor herd health. If the farmers are doing their work out in the field, that 15-year-old hulking PC tower isn’t going to cut it anymore.
Managing more than cows
Given the difficulties of managing so much data in the field, there was a clear need for a system that makes it easier for producers, vets, and technicians to track and record information about herds.
Any new mobile system would need to combine and augment the functionality of existing tools such as SigaDairy, DSA Dairy Producer and Agri-Lacta. Additionally, any new software would need to function while offline and in the field.
“Shockoe provided the additional expertise necessary to organize the project and help with its development. Their team created the structure of the app, then defined the steps needed to complete each element.”

Farmers now have easy offline access to data, a management grid that displays upcoming events, and a complete history of each animal. With everything located in one mobile app, the days of balancing bulky hardware in the field are obsolete.
No wifi? No problem.
The mobile version of Lac-T is complementary to the Desktop App, enabling users to enter health and reproduction events while in the field and sync that data once they return to their desktops.
There are now approximately 500 herds being managed on a daily basis (with an average of 65 cows per herd), which means there are a lot of cattle that are happier and healthier thanks to Lac-T.
