A quality herd recording system that enables efficient entry and retrieval of data and links to BREEDPLAN & Breed societies is a crucial part of the management of Wirruna Poll Herefords.

I see HerdMASTER as being the result of many years of software developers working closely with and listening to the needs of beef producers to make a very stable, flexible, user friendly and advanced herd recording program.

I value the support services which have demonstrated the flexibility of the program by being able to design and add new features to suit my individual needs.

As an ABRI product, HerdMASTER 4 provides an efficient interface to Pedigree and BREEDPLAN systems.
