About Herd Books
Herd Books is Cow/Calf cattle management & CCIA compliant 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 favour could get by at cull time while not weaning decent calves - she's a good cow. Herd Books helps you spot that "good cow" as well as your best cows, and the cow tree points you to their mother, sisters and daughters as well.
The Herd Books program has been updated for 2012, the current version being 188.8.131.52
