BioTrack for Livestock: Visualizing Profitability

February 09, 2015

Beef Improvement Opportunities (BIO) has been approved for up to $71,800, under the Growing Forward 2 (GF2) program, to leverage an existing online record keeping system, bioTrack. The goal of this project is to enhance the system to provide livestock farmers with a convenient, simple and secure on-farm accessible system to allow the collection and storage of animal-related information.

Innovations to the BioTrack software allows on-farm smart phone access and the ability to post photos and store documents, which will help to make decisions such as selection of replacement females and herd sires. As well, the bioTrack system can be used in any livestock production scenario to capture data, have easy linkages with other data sources, and have valuable information returned in the form of genetic evaluations, productivity reports, health summaries, animal history reports and benchmarking over time.
