LOHMANN TIERZUCHT Application Software

The so­called “app” or application software is nowadays a part of lives of millions of people world­wide using smartphones, tablet computers and other mobile devices. Also in the modern livestock farming the apps are getting more popular as nice tools supporting farmers in the daily management. In this context LOHMANN TIERZUCHT has started to develop application software based on the specification and management of its birds. At the moment 2 apps are available for iOS and Android devices.

The Specification App

Body weight development in the rearing, production per hen/day, egg weight, livability or the cumulative eggs mass are some of the most important parameters for an egg producer to optimize the performance results. For the parent stock farmers also the detailed information on the performance, number of hatching eggs and especially saleable chickens at different ages of the birds could be some of the main parameters to have a look on that. “LTZ performance specifications app“ offers a unique opportunity to compare your results with standards of LOHMANN commercial layers and parent stock including details and charts. This app is now available for Android and iOS devices on Google Play store and Apple app store.

The Lighting Program App

Sexual maturity and performance of layers are substantially affected by the length of daylight during rearing and production. In systems where pullets are kept in windowless houses without access to the outside, lighting programs can be designed in such a way that optimal rearing and preparation for the laying period are guaranteed. However, still in many world­wide light­tight houses are rare and environmental controlled houses which have been constructed during the last years are often not fully light­tight. Lighting programs adapted to specific conditions are a valuable tool in the management of highly productive laying hens. For example, it is very important to apply the appropriate lighting programs for the laying hens kept in new alternative systems such as free­range. For these kinds of housings a tailor­made lighting program has to be compiled. “LTZ lighting Program App“ offers you the opportunity to make this possible set to the season, geographical location and the date of the hatch. This app is now available for iPad tablets and can be downloaded from Apple app store.
