HERDEplus

The herd management system for the farmer

is a software system for the management of cattle herds. The program is characterized by the fact that it is easily manageable and clearly structured.

It is multi-user and network-capable, so that different people can access all data at different workstations at the same time. With the use of a better infrastructure, both the mobile iOS version as well as the display in the web browser are possible, independent of the platform.

The milking equipment suppliers available on the German market as well as the diverse heat and activity measuring systems are connected so that several different systems can be used without any problems. Look here.

With this, you use HERDEplus as the central stock management, including the creation of messages for the regional office and the insemination association.

Through the bundled interface, the information provided – for each individual animal or for the entire stock – will assist you in your daily work in the barn. In the program, the menus, work and overview lists can be set according to your own needs.

Each individual list in the program can be easily and simply edited by the user. The tabular data collection reduces the time required for the recording to a minimum. However, it is also possible by the direct data input to the individual animal.

Automatic processes can be planned, printed and executed via the action calendar. Background queries resulting in a warning can be immediately accessed on the front page.

KLAUE

KLAUE is a software solution for farmers to enhance the efficiency of  recording and evaluating claw health.

The recording can be realized at the claw stand in the stable with minimal effort. With the help of a touchscreen PC all the data can be recorded by the touch of a finger, even with gloves. Fitting hardware for the stationary and mobile use complete our offer.

In addition, new lists for the next check-up are automatically created.

Credentials

Findeisen Klauenpflege, which meanwhile are more than 20 years hoof care in the whole of Germany. We also started small.

The start took place in 1993 as a one-man business. After three months, the first reinforcement was needed due to the great demand. Gradually, more and more customers came to it, so that currently 27 employees are active in hoof care.

Due to our size, we can adapt well to local conditions to ensure fast and professional hoof care.

In cooperation with the Agricultural Educational Center in Echem, our hoof curlers are also brought up to date once or twice a year in theory and practice, even after they have completed their specialized Courses.

Hardware

The KLAUE has been designed for touch operation. In addition to our software, we also offer the corresponding hardware.

So the KLAUE ePAD is intended for stationary use:

  • Screen diagonal from 15 to 17 inches
  • shock and impact resistant, as well as use of SSD and passive cooling
  • Also available as IP65 device
  • Flexible wall mount available

For mobile use, the Pokini brand devices are our favorite.

  • Screen diagonal up to 12 inches
  • Impact-resistant and impact-resistant by Gorilla © -Glass
  • Battery life up to 10 hours, depending on the application
  • Accessories: keyboard, protective cover and quick-charging dunking station
System requirements
  • Processor: 1.5GHz and better (Intel)
  • Hard disk: 64GB SSD
  • USB ports: at least 1, better 2
  • USB3.0 can be recognized by the light blue socket

You need a (full) Windows (C) tablet, no Apple (C), no Samsung (C), no Android (C)

Since the input is designed for touch operation, we recommend a size from 10 inches, devices for stationary use are available from 15 inches. Protective covers and outdoor use, even in damp and dusty environments, must be considered before you buy.

If you want to work mobile, pay attention to the battery power, as well as the charging speed (better with docking station). Although the charging function via mini USB would also work in the car, however, the susceptibility to repairs in case of defect of this type of connection is very high.

Request a quote from your dealer, we will help you in case of warranty. You should consider this when buying a cheap device. Cheap devices are usually not worth repairing them.

AMTS.Cattle.Pro

What is AMTS.Cattle.Pro?

AMTS.Cattle.Pro is a software program for evaluating and formulating diets in dairy and beef production systems. AMTS is a licensed version of the Cornell Net Carbohydrate and Protein System (CNCPS).

Who uses AMTS.Cattle.Pro?

AMTS is designed to be used by nutritionists and industry support personnel trained in animal nutrition. Our program is used to balance diets for millions of animals in over 40 countries around the world.

How do I try out the program?

You have the opportunity to test the program for 30 days without obligation and for free! Under the menu item Advantages of AMTS.Cattle.Pro/Free Trial Version you can easily and quickly download:

  1. Register as a new user.
  2. Download and install the full-functioning program.
  3. Use the program with no obligation for 30 days.

How much does the program cost?

The base program is $700 USD/year (~611€/year). No setup fee, just a simple yearly subscription price. Volume discounts are available.

Where do I go for support?

We provide unparalleled software support and nutrition training to our clients.

Advantages of AMTS.Cattle.Pro

Laboratory Analysis

AMTS.Cattle.Pro is most powerful when paired with quality feed analysis. Carbohydrate digestion (starch and fiber) is a very important parameter. The CNCPS system uses laboratory digestibility at three time-points to estimate how fast the cow will degrade fiber. We recommend analyzing most forages on a monthly basis.

Where can I get my forages analyzed?

The near-infrared spectroscopy (NIR) allows for rapid and ecomic analysis for field use. There are several labs in the Europe, Germany, the UK and Russia that offer CNCPS-style analysis using NIR. Many of these labs have specific regional calibrations to improve accuracy.
