Starter Software Level

Total Starter Dairy provides basic Cattle Movement and Herd Register records plus a Medicine book holding drugs used against drugs purchased that satisfies Health Assurance recording requirements. When entering calving details the system will then notify BCMS for a Passport Application by email for each calf. Also any movements on and off the holding can be emailed direct to BCMS from the software.

Should you wish to upgrade to the Standard level, this can be done at any time, without needing to re-enter any data.

Standard Software Level

Total Standard Dairy is designed to offer a comprehensive but practical Herd Management system. Including all functionality provided at the Starter level, Standard Dairy goes on to provide detailed individual cow records covering all aspects of fertility, milk records, calving histories and genealogy.

The program generates full action lists and feed ration sheets, analyses the physical and financial performance of the herd, and forecasts milk production against Quota. Full links with all milk recording services avoid duplication of records and interface modules let the software synchronise with the milking parlour systems and palmtop computers.

All Total Standard Dairy reports can be easily exported into Excel, CSV, TXT and PDF formats.

Optional Modules

You can record any event as it happens with the Pocket Bovine Module running on a Palmtop. This imports the herd data from Total Dairy onto the Palmtop to either review what has happened to each cow or input new events, such as services, calvings, drug treatments, as you do them outside. This data can then be synchronised with Total Dairy back on the office PC at anytime. For further details please go to Pocket Total.

The Parlour Interface Module links Total Standard Dairy to many in-parlour recording systems so that there is no need for dual input of data. Milk yields can be automatically updated on each cow record from the parlour and new feed can be calculated and sent back with other activities onto the parlour system. Please contact us with details of your parlour system and we can discuss the options available.
