Total Dairy Program
Practical & Powerful Dairy Farm Software
Total Dairy provides cattle movement and herd register records plus a medicine book that satisfies Health Assurance recording requirements. When entering calving details the system will then notify BCMS or ScotMoves+ for a Passport Application for each calf. Also any movements on and off the holding can be submitted direct to BCMS or ScotMoves+ from the software.
With Total Dairy you get 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 avoids duplication of records and interface modules let the software synchronise with the milking parlour systems and smartphones/tablet PCs.

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. This imports the herd data from Total Dairy or DairyMate onto the device 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 or DairyMate back on the office PC via WiFi at anytime.
Parlour Interface Module
The Parlour Interface Module links Total Dairy to many in-parlour recording and heat detection systems (see the list here Total Parlour Links) 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 or heat detection system and we can discuss the options available.
Milk Recording Partnerships
Apart from generic links with NMR and CIS, we work in close partnership with Quality Milk Management Services (QMMS) who provide a very cost-effective and consultative milk testing service.
Led by Dr Andrew Bradley, an RCVS recognised specialist vet in cattle health and production, QMMS combine each client's milk testing results with their herd's fertility and health data to highlight how the client can improve the overall health and performance of their client's dairy enterprise.
Furthermore, QMMS have gone on to design a universal dairy data analysis tool, TotalVet, developed by SUM-IT, that enables vets, consultants and farmers to look at any herd's records in great depth, identifying trends and providing a common benchmarking tool regardless of the source of original herd data.
Electronic Weigher Interface Module
Imports weigh session files from Tru-Test, Gallagher and Iconix weighers into the Total Standard Dairy 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.
