We are delighted to introduce our new Animal Search mobile app. This new app will now allow herd-owners quick access to the ICBF Animal Search through this new mobile app.The Animal Search allows ICBF users to search for males and females in HerdPlus/BDGP herds.
This app allows the user to search for EBI and €uro-Star figures on the animals in the ICBF Database. The HerdPlus Animal Search app allows users to search the genetic index figures (EBI and €uro-Star)on animals in the ICBF database. Animals must be located in herds signed up to the HerdPlus service or be participating in the Beef Data and Genomics Programme. This app helps herd-owners make more informed decisions when buying or selling animals as well as when breeding. It also contains the Active AI bulls in order of genetic index.
The ICBF Bull Search has been the number one tool used for accessing genetic indexes online. In 2015 there were over 2.25 million searches carried out on the Bull Search facility. This facility will have a significant impact on the breeding industry in Ireland. This free app is available on the Apple App Store and Android Play Store. You can find it by searching for ‘ICBF Animal Search’.
