Farmer Registration at the Livestock Breeders Show

Category: iCow Blog

She liked iCow because she would like to know what to look out for  through the gestation period esp the date of delivery. She likes the fact that she would recieve nutritional information from iCow. She has 4 cows and a calf and she wants to register all of them on iCow.

She registered her cow called Munge by serve date and was very happy to get a reponse in line with what had happened in reality. The system told her to expect a calf any time . She smiled and told us iCow works as her calf was born on Sunday.



David_Ndivo_second_to_register_at_ShowHas more than 20 cows . He started by registering his best cow, called Kima who is due for delivery in 4 months.

He has asked for the iCow team to visit his area to show other farmers how to register. He travelled back to his home and has started registering his other cows.

Michael_Ruchu_3rd_to_reg_at_Show_picCow was born on 31st of Dec 2009 and is called Motige ( translated to ‘orphan’) as the mother cow died when the calf was 4 days old. He does not know what happened. He had used AI and is very happy with Motige thus wants to take the best care of her so that he can get a good calf from her too.


He wants to mobilise farmers from his area and then call the iCow team to vist and tell them about iCow. When registering his cow he made a mistake with the date and realised this when the system advised him to wait for 260 days before she would be ready to be served.
