CattleMax ID Edition Software
Basic cattle identification and traceability records for the commercial cow-calf rancher. Even if you do not manage your cattle on a weekly or record breeding and measurements, it is still important to keep good inventory records.
Track individual animal information
Track your cattle by one or more identifications including ear tag, brand, name, or electronic id (RFID). Record physical characteristics of an animal such as color markings, holding brands, and breed.
Record Medical and Health Treatments
Keep track of preventative treatments as part of your herd health program as well as track individual treatments to sick cattle. Record the basics of date and treatment or get into the details for your Beef Quality Assurance by recording locations, lot numbers, and serial numbers.
- Keep up with animal inventories including age (or estimated age) of the herd
- Print accounting reports in a single click, including Purchases, Sales, and Death Loss
- Record income and expenses for easy access at tax time
- Track animal movement history anytime cattle are moved
- Maintain herd health and medical treatment history
Log pasture movements automatically
CattleMax can automatically log animal movements each time you move an animal, whether individually, as a group, or through a pasture rotation. A complete movement history is available on each animal’s record, which can be conveniently be printed or exported to Excel.
Flexibility manage groups of cattle
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 your record keeping needs outgrow the ID Edition, you can upgrade to the Commercial Edition at any time with just a few clicks. The Commercial Edition includes everything in the ID Edition as well as complete production records including breeding, pregnancy checking, and calvings by due date. Performance data, including weights, body condition scores, and carcass data is also maintained in the Commercial Edition.
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.
Export information to animal identification agencies
Reduce record keeping for animal id compliance. Canadian ranchers can export records to CCIA’s CLTS including births, movements, and retired animals. Coming soon, Australian producers can export records to MLA’s NLIS and New Zealand producers can export records to NAIT.
Generate tax-related reports of animal purchases, sales, and death loss
Record information as it happens… purchases, sales, and death loss. At the end of the year, you can generate reports that your accountant will need and in a format they want.
Create powerful reports and worksheets
Information comes out of CattleMax just as easy as it comes in. Choose from our many pre-defined reports or create your own reports. Each report can be customized to include certain pieces of information as well as certain animals. Worksheets work in a similar manner and are great for printing out for use in the field.
