is no limit on the number of animals you can track in HerdLogic™, you can store pedigrees, or other information on animals you do not
own, but are interested in. For example, a potential acquisition of a new
sire for your herd. You can assign these animals to a separate location,
and flag them as not being part of your herd inventory. Records for any
animals not assigned to a location are hidden from view ("<unassigned>").
|HerdLogic™ uses the concept of "Locations".
A location can be a real or imaginary place, where any group of your
herd can reside. Examples of real locations are names for pastures,
paddocks, barns, etc. Examples for imaginary locations are, 'sold',
'sire not owned', 'deceased', 'culled', etc.
for an animal that is moved to <unassigned>, a 'blank' location, will
remain hidden, until moved to a named location. Animals in <unassigned>,
however, will always show in the pedigree as ancestors and as offspring
in the Pedigree Explorer.
can be moved between real or imaginary locations,
either in groups, or as individuals. All moves between locations are
recorded in a log. You can print this log at any time.
not yet weaned will be listed with the mother, until weaned.
HerdLogic™ will automatically place the name and sex for the last 10 animals viewed
in the Pedigree Tree on the menu of the explorer. This allows you to return
quickly for another look or selection of a different ancestor, or offspring.

Pedigree Tree will display 5 generations, starting with the selected
animal. The pedigree Form also shows all offspring produced by the
animal selected. Right clicking on any ancestor shown in the pedigree,
or any offspring shown below, will immediately show the pedigree for
the newly selected animal.

Any common ancestor
will be flagged in the pedigree of the male and the female. The pedigrees
are dynamic, which means you can drag any ancestor from the same sex into
the position of the animal for which you wanted to compare the pedigree
originally. A comparison will now be made for this ancestor and its ancestors.
Any comparison can be printed. If you find a "matching" pair,
you can print the pedigree for the offspring (not yet born) that will result
from their mating.

of the most tedious parts for any livestock breeder is comparing pedigrees
of females and males in the herd, to check if there are any common
ancestors. HerdLogic™ makes this task easy. You can compare
the pedigree of any 10 male animals with any 10 female animals at

HerdLogic™ will list additional information for the selected dam and sire. This
information consists of: Microchip ID, Registration(s), Tag Number, Current
Owner, Date of Birth, Age on date this report was printed with date printed,
last recorded weight and date, Number of Offspring produced of each sex,
and Breeding Status (for females only).
HerdLogic™ provides some very powerful reporting features for your herd. Some
examples of reports you can produce in HerdLogic™ are listed
in the reporting section. More sample reports will be added over time.
There are two
different formats for the herd inventory report. One a compact report used
only two lines per animal, and is especially designed to provide you with
a means for a quick head count of the animals in each location. For this
reason, the report will group the animals by location and will also report
the number of animals in each location.
herd inventory report allows you to display the animals by owner,
or by location. You can also select the order in which you want the
animals to be listed. You can specify three sort keys in ascending,
or descending, order for:
Species, Registered name, Sex, Breed (or fleece type), Date of birth,
Price, Primary color.
