Faulkton high school student develops app for calving season

FAULKTON (AP) -- A high school student in South Dakota has developed a smartphone app for the purpose of helping farmers and ranchers during calving season.

FAULKTON (AP) - A high school student in South Dakota has developed a smartphone app for the purpose of helping farmers and ranchers during calving season.

KELO-AM reports that Faulkton High School student Ellen Schlechter created the app that can track several steps in herd management, including calving, breeding, pregnancy and weaning.

Schlechter says she came up with the idea on a cold winter day when she and her cousin were at her family's farm and talked about how inconvenient it is to use a calving record book.

Schlechter says she had no programing experience when she thought of the app, but now she offers different versions of "The Calving Book" app, which can be downloaded for iPhone in the App Store and for Android in the Google Play Store.
