Roadmap Data

In order to get the best results from the Feed for Growth program, it’s important to set the correct Roadmap Data. This will give you an accurate guide for each calf’s pre-wean weight progress.

When you register your account, the values you supply will set up your Roadmap’s guide graph. You can tweak this in the app settings if you require.

Data Syncing

The app will sync your data as long as your device is online. This means you can use several devices under the same account if you so wish.

If you happen to be in a location without wifi or mobile data access, you can still use the app providing you are already logged-in.

The app will re-sync when you are using the app with wifi or mobile data available.

Recording a Calf Weight

To record a new weight value for a calf, pull up the record either by entering its tag id, or by navigating to the desired calf on the Calf Records screen.

Tap the weight field and punch in the weight value you wish to record, then tap the + button. The weight will be recorded and the data point will show on the Roadmap Graph above.

If you make a mistake, or need to change a previously recorded weight value, tap the Edit button above the graph and modify the required weight value. You can also delete a value if required.

Nb. you can only make one weight recording per calf per day.
