Managing stock movements, joining and calving dates, and welfare issues like drenching and vaccination dates often stretch the memory or lead to lots of paperwork at the end of the day.
Australian Mapping owner Sam Baulch hopes the entire process can be simplified with his new app.
"One of the main reasons I wanted to develop the app was for the dairy and sheep and cattle farmers," Mr Baulch.
"They normally have a big whiteboard in the shed with the map of the farm and it's their communication tool.
"It has where all the stock are on the farm and what tasks need to be done.
"This app will replace that big whiteboard."
For the past 10 years Mr Baulch has been working with farmers to map their farm accurately and has mapped around 200 farms in that time.
"Great savings can be made by accurately knowing the paddock areas and cutting down mistakes made by contractors when they follow a good map," he said.
Mr Baulch starting looking into creating an app over 12 months ago and has now employed a developer.
While development has been a little slower then expected Mr Baulch is still excited to see the app hit the market.
"I was asking all my clients what programs they used for record keeping and they told me it was all too complicated and they couldn't be bothered entering it into the computer when they got back home at night," he said.
"I thought if it was on an app on their phone they can put the data in instantly when they are doing it."
The app can be used on multiple devices so it can be shared with anyone working on the farm.
An icon will show up on the paddock the cattle or sheep are in and that icon can be moved easily when stock are moved.
Currently the app works off a Google Maps image of the farm, but Mr Baulch wants to see his own maps used in the system. However, using Google Maps means farmers who haven't invested in having their property mapped professionally can still utilise the app.
Mr Baulch started Australian Mapping in 2009 after realising many farmers didn't have accurate maps of their own farms.
"I saw a lot of farmers did not have a decent map of their farm and had a lot of mud maps, which are so inaccurate," he said.
Accurate maps enable more accurate application of fertiliser, chemicals and stocking rates, ultimately saving money and resulting in better management of the property.
Much like an accurate map can save money and time, Mr Baulch hopes his new app will do the same thing when it comes to audit time for dairy farmers.
"It's easy to use and easy to get data out of," he said.
