Simply calving season
CattleMax automatically maintains a list of cows due to calve. At the beginning of calving screen, you start with a list of all cows due to calve. To record a calving, just click ‘Add Calf’ by the dam and see how
Measure cow and calf performance at weaning
Weaning is an essential process for most commercial cow-calf operations as it represents the time when a cow is done with her calf. CattleMax automatically calculates an adjusted 205-day weaning weight based on your records. If you wean calves in a group through the Weaning screen, each calf will be ratio’ed to the group so you can see how each calf performed. All of this information also flows back to the cow and is reflected in her average calving interval, MPPA, and production history.
Organize cattle into groups for easy management
Though each animal has its own record, we still manage our cattle in groups, work them in groups, and move them in groups. The Smart Groups feature lets you create a group based on a criteria (animal type, status, pasture, category, and more) and ensure this group is automatically updated as cattle records change.
If the Commercial Edition tracks a little more than you currently need, you may want to check out the ID Edition. The ID Edition keeps track of animal inventory, herd health, movement history, and financial info such as purchase and sales. Some ranchers who do not keep up with breeding or weights find the ID Edition’s reduced features to be a better fit.
Update your records quickly
Updating animals is just as easy with the Group Update feature. Simply check the checkbox by one or more animals, select a tab from the Group Update bar, and enter the update details. All selected cattle will have their information updated with the details you provide. Group Update areas include Breeding, Medical Treatments, Pasture Movement, Notes, and more.
