“WSU Carcass Calculator App:  From Development to Use”
The WSU Livestock Carcass Grade & Cutability Calculator app calculates carcass yield grade, dressing percentages, and cutability of beef, pork, and lamb carcasses from carcass data. It also estimates yield grade or cutability from live animal data. This webinar will explain how the app was created and demonstrate how to use it.

Trevor Lane, Jordan Tampien and Natalie Kinion
“There’s an App for That!”
With so many options and choices for smart phone apps and other technology, many people have a hard time sorting through the best apps.  This webinar is designed to educate Extension professionals how to better use technology, specifically smart phone technology, to enhance their productivity.  The webinar will teach tips and tricks to assist with everything from organization and teamwork to data collection and communication, and even touch on interactive media and graphic design. These skills will launch attendees into the next level -- even those who are “technologically resistant.”
