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 notify BCMS for a Passport Application for each calf. Also the movement details of any cattle purchased or sold can be submitted direct to BCMS or ScotMoves+ from the software. The program also provides the facility to reconcile the data against BCMS/​ScotMoves+ records.

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

Optional Modules and Equipment

Total Bovine App

You can record any event as it happens with the Total Bovine App running on an Android Smartphone or Tablet PC.This imports the cattle data from Total Beef onto the mobile device to either review the status of each animal or input new events, such as calvings, drug treatments and weights as you do them outside. This data can then be synchronised with Total Beef via WiFi back on the office PC at anytime.

Laser Bar Code Readers

Readers can be supplied to speed up data entry from Cattle Passports. They scan the UK Ear Tag, Date of Birth, Sex and Breed instantly onto the Purchase Screen and can also be used to tag animals for sale.

Electronic Weigher Interface Module

This Module imports weigh session files from Tru-Test, Gallagher and Iconix weighers into the Total Standard Cattle Module. From the imported weigh data, Daily Liveweight Gains are automatically calculated and a range of reports and scatter graphs can then provide in-depth analysis on the growth rates across individual animals.


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.

Total Accounts Module

Choose from either Cashbook or Full Accounts levels and both modules can either be run as stand-alone programs or will integrate seamlessly with the Total Beef modules.
