Need to do a Johne’s herd Risk Assessment and Management Plan (RAMP)? Save trees and time by using an iPad App. The University of Wisconsin, School of Veterinary Medicine, Food Animal Production Medicine team in cooperation with the Johne’s Information Center has created an iPad App that permits entry of RAMP data, creation of herd management recommendations, and submission of the plan by email to relevant veterinary officials without need of a printer or paper. Of course, printing is an option too. The Johne’s RAMP App is one of 8 great Apps designed to help practitioners manage dairy herd health. http://www.vetmed.wisc.edu/dms/fapm/apps.htm Click on the link below and you will be taken to the iTunes Store where this App is sold. The time you will save after a single herd RAMP more than offsets its cost. Note: This RAMP App is built on the U.S. model but is quite similar to RAMPs being used in other countries.
