Starter: Essential Cattle Software

Total Starter Cattle offers a simple and easy-to-use record keeping program for UK cattle farmers.

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, that sat­is­fies all 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, Scot­Moves+ OR NIFAIS from the cat­tle soft­ware. The pro­gram also pro­vides the facil­i­ty to rec­on­cile the data against BCMS/ScotMoves+/NIFAIS records.

Should you wish to upgrade to the Stan­dard lev­el of our cat­tle record keep­ing soft­ware, 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 Barcode Readers

Barcode 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.

TOTAL2 Accounts Module

Choose from either cashbook or full farm accounts levels and both modules can either be run as stand-alone programs or will integrate seamlessly with the Total Beef modules.
