Field app for on-farm data collection

APP MERINO PARASITECompletion of an online field app for on-farm data collection. This app was developed to be used on the mobile phone or tablet and will be applied in the field to implement an epidemiological questionnaire in the farms involved in the project.

The app offers several advantages compared to conventional paper-based data collection, by speeding up data recording, which will be easier and more intuitive, while ensuring better adherence to the questionnaire and avoiding omissions in the completion. Furthermore, it will allow integrating into a single database epidemiological data obtained through the questionnaire, individual animal data extracted from the field records of project partner ANCORME, as well results from blood tests and parasitological analyses as phenotypic indicators of resistance to parasites.
