Total Beef cattle management software

Sum-It's Total Beef Cattle Management software is designed to be a complete beef enterprise management tool to aid with the practical day-to-day control and increasing official, traceability and assurance aspects of the industry.

It provides full enterprise costing facilities, generating gross margins and detailed profit analysis. Program Set-up time can be minimised by downloading movement records from BCMS. Choose from either Starter or Standard levels and both modules will integrate seamlessly with the Accounts module.

With Total Beef you can:

  • Keep all Statutory Movement records
  • View comprehensive individual animal records
  • Email BCMS to apply for Passport Applications and notify Movements
  • Access your cattle data outside at any time on a Smartphone or Tablet
  • Print off NOAH format Medicine Book for both Purchases and Treatments
  • Calculate N kg/Ha generated by all livestock on-farm and storage needed
  • Monitor liveweight gains between different groups of animals
  • Input accurate feed usage records by animal group
  • Analyse the financial performance of your Beef Herd
  • Run a comparison against your BCMS Movements file
  • Maintain a complete unlimited pedigree history of the herd

Starter Cattle Module

Total Starter Cattle is designed to handle all legislative aspects of beef records, providing statutory Cattle Movement and Herd Register records plus a Medicine book, storing 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 the movement details of any cattle purchased or sold can be emailed direct to BCMS from the software. The program also provides the facility to reconcile the data against BCMS records.

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

Standard Cattle Module

Total Standard Cattle includes all the Starter legislative functionality but goes on to provide in-depth beef management records and analysis. Suckler Herds benefit from full calving histories, fertility records and unlimited genealogies. Fattening Herds can record weights and feed costs to calculate daily liveweight gains and true profit per kilo or per day on-farm.

This data can then be synchronised with Total Beef via WiFi back on the office PC at anytime.

The BREEDPLAN Link Module enables you to send your pedigree calf registrations direct from the Total Standard Beef Module to any breed society that uses the BREEDPLAN Database system.

The Electronic Weigher Interface Module links Total Standard Beef to Tru-Test, Gallagher and Iconix electronic scales to import weights automatically.
