You’ll never look at cow poop the same again!
This new app is available to help cattle producers estimate forage quality for livestock on pastures and maintain records. After taking a photo of the “typical” fecal pat in a pasture, pat can be compared to several different stock photos to determine the approximate crude protein and digestibility of forage cattle are consuming. This information can be saved with a title and pasture name and a date will automatically be assigned for future reference.
This mobile app is based on the Extension publication (E-541) ‘Forage Quality Photo Guide’.
