MATE

MATE

The main recipe screen. Alter your feeds here. Note the little green wagon. It turns red to tell you when your mixer/feed wagon needs servicing. Now thatís a good mate.

This is the main paddock list which you can sort by Paddock, DM or Days. From here, once setup, you can enter a grazing with one touch of a finger.† Even import your DM readings from your pasture meter. Nice one mate.

Spring rotation planner. Touch the screen to see what round you need to be on any particular day.† Really? Top mate.

DM feed wedge. From here quickly determine any lack of growth and potential feed shortage or surplus. Now thatís a good mate.

This is the main cow analysis screen. The graph tells you how far above or below ideal you scored your cows on particular aspects.† Nice one mate.

Body Score. Set your own targets then score your cows body condition with one button press/cow. Watch the score change as you go...

...then graph the results. Overlay this graph with last time your scored the herd to compare change in condition. Mate, thatís nice.

MATE

WorkMate is a handy app for communicating with the team. The boss puts a job into WorkMate, ranks the job for priority, sets a due date. Staff then update the jobs status depending on how much theyíve done. Overdue jobs are highlighted in red. Completed jobs are crossed out. Have as many lists as you want and everyone in the team has the same thing, up to date and clear. Handy mate!

Type in the size of your bunker, drag the stack back until it looks like yours and it will tell you how† many tonnes of DM is left in the bunker. Oh maaaate!.
