- Version Pro Feeder - Feedlot Software Program for Custom Feedyards


Pro Feeder is lot accounting software for custom feedyards. All charges, feed and head days are tracked by the lot. Feed is also tracked by the lot. Feed is also tracked by the individual pens within each lot. Pro Feeder options include calculating feed finance by the lot and calculate finance charges on individual cattle notes on lots. Multiple prepaid grain options including full prepaids by account. Split ownership of lots allow up to 30 owners. In partnership owned lots, one owner can have prepaids, another can be feed finance, another owner can have cattle notes.

All data can be edited. Feed or fees can be entered on previously completed days. The feed and fees adjustment update option doesn't recount heads, charge interest or yardage when used. Feedbills can be run at anytime a lot has been closed.

Closed lots do not have to be deleted immediately or remain in a bogus pen. Once the head count in the lot goes to zero, all automatic calculations of yardage and head days stop. Closed lots can eventually be moved to the history section for future analysis or deleted. Feed and fees can be updated to a closed lot on demand.

Customer reviews

  1. By Brittan Ellis on

    Absolutely the worst software for cattle feeding. The competitors program is more expensive but is MUCH more user friendly AND is capable of many more processes. Wouldn't recommend it to my ex-mother-in-law
