Smartphones have changed the way we access, use and share information. “Apps” are a huge part of this technological revolution. It seems like nowadays you can find an app for pretty much anything- games, cooking classes, sports updates, language lessons, music, photography, gardening and everything in between. Well, we’re not about to be left behind as technology thrusts the world forward! Vets without Borders, LifeLearn and the International Development and Research Centre teamed up to develop an app that will help PAHWs improve smallholder poultry management in rural Laos.
The app was designed to be simple and user-friendly. Each section has tons of pictures, video and audio to make the app more interactive and interesting for farmers and PAHWs. Users can tap the screen with their finger to move through different sections and scroll up or down to see everything on the page. The app is a gateway to tons of important information on:
1. Selection and Reproduction
- Flock Management
- Hatching Management
- Brooding Management
- Parent-Stock Keeping
2. Nutrition and Feeding
- Benefits of Good Nutrition
- Improving Feed Quality (Energy, Protein, Vitamins and Minerals)
- Improving Feed Practices
- Benefits of Good Housing
- Types of Housing
- Housing Equipment
So how can the Poultry App be used in real life?
Want to improve poultry management for rural smallholder farms in Laos? There’s an app for that!
