About Herd Books
Herd Books is Cow/Calf cattle management & age verification software designed for commercial Canadian Beef producers, with 'herds' up to 500 head.
If you have been keeping your cattle records on paper or on a spread sheet, Herd Books can help you make the transition to an easier to use and more productive Cow/Calf record system.
Herd Books is produced on our Alberta ranch. I wrote the basics for it in the early '80s finding that without keeping good livestock records, a cow that has once earned favor could get by at cull time even though she not weaning decent calves - she's a good cow. With all her stats displayed on her page, Herd Books helps you spot that "good cow" at a glance. All her calves record items, can be compared to each other on the right side of her calf page.
The Herd Books program has been updated for 2014, the current version being 188.8.131.52.
