Bulk Add

Quickly enter a large number of animals into CattleMax. You can specify certain fields as group fields, which means that all animals will share this value. You can also specify individual fields so that you can have different values for each animal.

Breed Association Import

Download an electronic copy of your registered cattle records from your breed association, if available. Most files include active inventory, 3-generation pedigrees, weights/performance, and current EPDs.
