Lac-T Field Support App

Shockoe worked with the technology team at Lactologic to build a cross platform solution deployed on Android and iOS that allows online and offline access to herd and cow analytics as well as dairy-specific data points which allow staff to better manage on-site decisions.

About Lac-T

Lac-T provides herd management software that brings together the most useful functions of three well-known software programs (SigaDairy, DSA Dairy Producer, and Agri-Lacta) while being easier to use than any other herd management tool in the market.

The main objective of Lac-T is simple: to provide a clear and straightforward program that makes it easier for Producers, Vets, and Technicians track and record information about herds.

The Challenge

If anyone stands to benefit from mobile technology, it’s dairy producers.

Their work, by definition, has them in the field every day. Lactologic challenged Shockoe to adapt their current herd management software for the mobile-modern dairy producer, vet, or animal technician.

The client looked to Shockoe to create an adjacent solution, augmenting the current desktop experience. The result was a simplified, intuitive tool that provides full value to clients both online and offline.

The Solution

The herd management application, Lac-T mobile, allows for simple data entry and easy access to herd information. Lac-T users will find it to be an essential part of their daily herd routine.

A management grid displays upcoming events, and the complete history of each animal is always available. The mobile solution is complementary to the to Lac-T Desktop App, enabling users to enter health and reproduction events while in the field.

Shockoe worked with the technology team at Lactologic to build a cross-platform solution deployed on Android and iOS that allows online and offline access to herd and cow analytics as well as dairy-specific data points which allow staff to better manage on-site decisions. Together with the current technology stack, the new apps have enriched Lactologic’s offerings by streamlining processes, increasing on-the-go farmer awareness, and allowing for more informed decisions in the field.
