Herd Management Software

Postby Paul » Wed Jan 24, 2001 10:41 pm

I need a database program (with pedigree) to keep up with my longhorn cattle. I'm looking at two programs, has anyone had experience with them? Any side by side comparisons?<p>There's CattlePro 2000 http://www.cattlepro.com but the cheapest one with pedigree info is $700. Hard to tell much from the demo (not a working version) and it looks a little "homemade" for lack of a better description.<p>Then there's Herd Management 2000, Cattle edition http://www.firststepsoftware.com which is $300, and there's a full working demo. It seemed cleaner and a lot more professionally programmed. <p>Before purchasing, I'd sure like to hear if anyone else has hands-on experience with these two programs and can give me some feedback. Thank you! <br>

Paul,<br>I do not have any experience with the programs you mentioned. About ten years ago I went through what you are looking at now and I decided I could not afford it. For pedigree's, I opted to use a geneoligy program that works great and it is free for the asking. It does not do all of the other things that the cattle programs will but I have managed to adapt. If you are interested, e-mail me. Regards,<br>Mack <p><br>: I need a database program (with pedigree) to keep up with my longhorn cattle.
