Cattle Management


See cattle by individuals, groups, identification methods, descriptions, and raised/purchased records. Track semen and embryo inventories.


Assign cattle to specific groups based on the criteria that fits your operation – animal type, status, pasture, category and more. Records entered by groups are updated automatically for all individuals listed in that group.

Activity Timeline

View the most recent activity for individual cattle by key management categories like breeding, calving, measurements, and health.

Movement history

Pasture movements record automatically when the animal is moved to a different pasture or location.


Take photos of your cattle right from the pasture and upload them to that individual’s page.


Breeding and Production Snapshot

Selecting the breeding icon on the home page takes you to the active cow list showing cows, birthdates, last calving and last breeding.

Pasture exposure, artificial insemination, and embryo

Track bull turnout, AI dates, and embryo transfers individually and by groups. Recording pasture exposure is easy with the bull turn-in feature. Embryo transfer breeding keeps track of the recipient and her due date in addition to donor and sire.

Current Breeding Status

Record and review pregnancy checks and projected calving dates.

Calving History

Production Statistics

Get actual data that provide additional ways to identify productive cows with production statistics like as Average Calving Intervals and Average Post Partum Intervals.



Enter weights, body conditions scores, heights, frame scores, and scrotal circumference. Easily download weights from a spreadsheet that is generated from a scale or one that you’ve created. Works with most EID readers.

Weight averaging by groups

Automatically calculate related values for a selected group of cattle by entering or downloading weights – ratios, average daily gain, weight per day of age, etc. Calculations are based on Beef Improvement Federation formulas.

Cow/calf weaning performance

The Weaning management feature automatically calculates an adjusted 205-day weight based on your data. Calves weaned in groups are assigned a ratio. This information tracks back to the cow and is reflected in her average calving interval, MPPA, and production history.

Keep up with EPDs (North America) and EBVs (Worldwide)

Raised/Purchase tracking

View performance results of cattle that you raise and those that you purchase to make informed management decisions.
