What are users saying about MINDA

by U####:

Have multiple staff entering calving data on multiple devices. Need to be able to see what they have entered on their phone in my records on my phone.

by I####:

Wasting my time entering mating when it won't sync properly.

by S####:

Good app works well but if posible under pasture can we have a daily grazing rather than having to log in on the net to enter it and also be able to put in %of paddock grazed as you can only do total paddock thank you

by G####:

I've lost count at the amount of times my pasture as suddenly denied me permission. Then I have to reinstall. Call Centre can't fix and here I am again reinstalling this buggy as app.

by Q####:

Since updating why does it take so long to activate? Never used to? We are not making progress here people.........

by B####:

Hasn't improved at all. What's the point in providing feedback when you have no intention of making any changes or improvements LIC.

by M####:

Any updates have been a backward step. A common treatment setup for 6 treatments only comes up as a 1 treatment. No improvement to list on who is on withold either. Not helpful sorry

by U####:

Looks good.

by I####:

Good app but terrible adding events

by T####:

Need to be able to cull cows. also need same kind of group idea as minda pro cause if you have animals with different herd code to your own you can't look them up by birth I'd!

by L####:

All good but as mentioned can't add an health event from earlier date. Plus like to see grazing calendar added to pasture module. So I can fill in which paddock is being grazed on that day. Cheers

by S####:

Good but could be better. The ability to record dryoff would be good especially when you are drying off a few before you do the whole herd.

by G####:

When I look up my cows under the reproduction history tab and it says the current sire for the cow. Could be great to click on the bull and see some overview of that bull,maby a photo or two of the bull even some of the daughters would help during calving thank.

by Q####:

Pretty average, lacks updates. A simple return to vat in the to do list would be good.

by B####:

Can I have the option to create a health plan back please? Ta

by D####:

Can no longer see the BW of a calf when recording a calf with the calving app. Very disappointed.

by V####:

Handy app but can no longer lookup animals via birth id

by U####:

Good like it but can't enter an event that happens the day before. You should be able to select the date you matted cows or had cow calve etc
