Online cattle tracker adds dial-up option

The Canadian Cattle Identification Agency has prepared a stripped-down, quick-loading “lite” version of its Canadian Livestock Tracking System (CLTS).

“This application is designed to provide the same functionality and information to CLTS users as the original system, but without the extras that usually delay access for rural users with dial-up connections,” the CCIA said in a release Monday.

The dial-up friendly application is stripped of all graphics and logos, allowing for a “faster and lighter” online experience allowing dial-up CLTS users to navigate the system more quickly.

“The ability to remove graphics is going to greatly benefit users who struggle on a daily basis with dial-up connections in remote locations,” executive director Kerry St. Cyr said in Monday’s release.

“We wanted to ease their frustrations to the best of our abilities and make the CLTS process as trouble-free as possible.”
