If you’re using a basic spreadsheet or notebooks to record your flock records, now couldn’t be a better time to consider setting up your flock records using specialised flock management software.
Here at Farmplan we’ve listened to our customers and worked with organisations within the farming sector to ensure our software provides the best solution for you to keep your flock records organised and to make it easier for you to provide the information to meet your legislative requirements. Our Flock Manager program has been developed during 2015 and the latest release offers users an improved level of functionality to enable each farmer to use the software according to how they want to manage their flocks.
Sally Ashwell, Product Coordinator says, “Flock Manager now offers greater flexibility and improved legislative reporting as well as a range of other key updates to the functionality of the program to make it as straightforward to use as possible. Existing users will notice the homepage has been redesigned and alerts, notifications and last activity information are prominent, plus we’ve made adjustments to compatibility enabling more data to be brought into the software via an EID stick reader.”
Here are some other enhancements made to the 2015 release of Flock Manager:
• Simplified animal categories and opening numbers
• Home Page – overview of animal numbers by category/holding/year and lamb details by year
• Flock Inspector – view running totals of each category by year
