Sheep producers attending the NSA Sheep Event this week became the first farmers to engage with a new digital flock health management solution being launched this autumn by MSD Animal Health.
Expertis LivestockPro is available on-line for free and is an easy-to-use, website-based computer application designed to make flock vaccine and animal health product scheduling much simpler.
Previewing the new application, project co-ordinator Marcus Sanders from MSD Animal Health, said sheep producers will benefit enormously from the new digital system.
“Expertis LivestockPro really will make life easier for UK sheep producers. Shepherds will no longer have to rely on memory or written records in a filing cabinet or on a farm office wallchart to schedule animal health treatments. Embracing the new digital system will certainly save time and money, and ultimately reduce livestock losses from key sheep diseases. Adopt the application as a key flock management tool – installing it on your farm computer, tablet or even personal smartphone – and you will be unlikely to miss a key animal health product usage date ever again,” he claimed.
The new application also keeps track of vaccine stock levels on the farm and even reminds users to order additional product before it is needed. Users can set up various alerts on any Internet-connected device. LivestockPro also incorporates medicinal product information and advice on correct vaccine administration.
Sheep producers interested in becoming early adopters of the innovative new digital flock health management solution should visit www.livestockpro.co.uk or e-mail MSD Animal Health [[email protected]] for further information.
