The Cattle Tags Store App - CattleTags.com
We are pleased to announce The Cattle Tags App, an app that is designed for the Allflex RS420 and LPR EID Readers. This is the first app that takes the iOS capability of the iOS-compatible EID readers and makes it available for producers working with EID in their herd.
Key Features of The Cattle Tags App
Session Mode - Create a session and scan tags. Optionally enter a visual ID (ear tag) and/or weight. After scanning cattle, you can email your session file (spreadsheet) to yourself or someone else on the ranch. This functionality does not require an Internet connection.
CattleMax Mode - Scan an animal's EID tag and have it loaded up in your CattleMax Online account. When an EID is scanned, the matching animal record will be displayed in CattleMax. If the EID number is not found, you'll have the option to add the EID to an existing animal record, or to create a new animal record.
Compatible EID Readers
Currently the Allflex RS420 EID Reader and Allflex LPR Reader are the only readers compatible with iOS (iPad and iPhone). Need an EID reader? You can order a reader right here at The Cattle Tags Store.
