Cattle Drive: Making Trade Easier

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Cattle Drive helps farmers sell and buy cattle and helps butchers, restaurants, and stores find local beef easily. The app will give prospective farmers a place to explore and find a starting point in developing their herd. Users will be able to see recently posted animals as well as have the ability to find the animals corresponding farm on the map. When posting an animal the user will enter data that includes farm name, price range, breed, and address of the farm. My motivation comes from seeing how farmers interact and how technology is essentially nonexistent within the trade as well as the dwindling number of farmers down 3.1% from 2007 to 2012 according to the USDA. The lack of technology costs the farmer time and money, it is especially costly for the small farmer. Cattle drive is a useable iPhone app for the general public. I used Xcode for the majority of my development. My hometown farming association helped with testing.
