StocKeeper - Version 03 - Complete Livestock Management Software
Managing a profitable farming operation requires having quality data to make quality decisions. Of course, no one likes managing data. That's why StocKeeper was created. We've developed a program that is very easy to use, and makes it a breeze to create and generate the reports needed to best manage your livestock operations. We also understand that no two farms are the same, and have therefore created a program that is also incredibly versatile in it's ability to be customized by the individual user. StocKeeper is one of the most powerful, yet easy-to-use, livestock management software applications on the market. It has been tailored to fit the needs of today's dairy and livestock industry through the input of hundreds of farmers, veterinarians and consultants just like yourself. One of Herd-Pro Software's top priorities has been to create a program that is, first and foremost, easy to use.
The StocKeeper interface is truly unique in the livestock management software industry. In addition to StocKeeper's easy-to-use interface, it also has a powerful toolbox of features to handle the management of your herd's medical, fertility, production and pedigree information. Each animal in your herd retains a lifetime record...even after it is culled from the herd...offering an amazing amount of information to mark herd performance over time. Combine that with the extensive customizable features and you have one of the most powerful and flexible applications on the market.

erd-Pro Software has been in the business of developing and supporting livestock management software for several years. Over the years we have always taken pride in the fact that we listen to our users. If one of our users has a feature request, we take it seriously and, more often than not, that feature request becomes part of the software. We've taken this philosophy one step further with the release of StocKeeper. We've combined the powerful features that our users expect with evaluations from leading universities and dairy consultants and, finally, added several ways for the individual to further customize the software. Below is a quick overview of the main features that can be found in StocKeeper.
And don't forget that we are always listening to our users. If you have an idea or need you'd like to share with us, please contact us.

- Custom Fields for tracking unique data.
Multiple Language Support
StocKeeper can support multiple languages. We currently offer Spanish, English, Italian, and Portuguese with more to come. Since StocKeeper can easily switch between languages while you are working, it makes it not only ideal for users of StocKeeper outside of North America, but can greatly assist in the management of farms that employ herd managers that speak multiple languages.
