Estrous synchronization and fixed-timed artificial insemination protocols have been developed that may enhance the economic viability and productivity of beef cattle operations. Possible outcomes from the combined use of these protocols include: shortened calving season, increased calf uniformity,
earlier births during the calving season, enhanced preweaning growth, and heavier calves at weaning. However, additional costs may also be associated with these protocols such as labor, time, and facilities. In addition, to providing producers an opportunity to identify whether they should or should incorporate artificial insemination in their herds, the AI Cowculator also contains a locator to determine where products may be purchased and technicians who can provide the service, along with additional resources and a link to the AI Cowculator social media.
- Determines the economic feasibility of artificially inseminating your cattle based on a number of inputs.
- Email the results of your Cowculations with the click of a button.
- Allows you to easily locate nearby estrus synchronization product suppliers.
- Delivers quick access to educational resources and outlets.
- Direct access to social media outlets, where topical conversations regarding estrus synchronization are held.

If the farmer has bred the cow then it will calculate the earliest date to draw blood to check for pregnancy.
If the cow is pregnant it will calculate the approximate due date.
Ability to see what events are coming up in the next 7 days. A user can also click on a cow within this view and it will take them to the cows page.
There is the ability to have notifications delivered for all three events as well and when the events will be delivered on a once per day basis.
A heat check notification will arrive 3 days prior to the next heat date,
A blood draw notification will arrive 5 days after the first time you can draw blood for testing.
A calving notification will arrive 14 days prior to the estimated due date.
Since this is tracking live animals we cannot guarentee that these events will not fluctuate but we hope the application will help you manage your herd better by keeping you aware of when events could be occuring and let you watch just a little closer around those times.
The application does request permission for the on boot so it can run the notification service if needed.
It also requests permission for Internet and Net work state so the ad engine can run.
