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.

All Total Dairy reports can be eas­i­ly export­ed into Excel, CSV, TXT and PDF for­mat. Opt for our online back-up ser­vice and you will remove the risk of ever los­ing your pre­cious 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. 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.

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 Dairy module.
