I have a small goat farm and breed fullblood boer goats and the database is perfectly suited.

Pros: The software is extremely easy t use and its functionality perfect for stud breeders. If I ever want something tailor designed, I simply email the owner and he does it within 48 hours. He always does exactly what I want and i often ask for specially designed dropdown boxes with products that are not very well known. He accommodates all my needs. It is a one stop software approach from birth, through to sale, growth and leasing and anything in between that requires a report or record.

Cons: There is nothing i do not like about this product. It suits all my needs and I am sure if I wanted adaptation then the owner would accommodate as he always does.

Overall: keeps all my records up to date and in one easy to use database.

Pros: It is created by goat keepers for goat keepers, and improvements are always being made based on suggestions from goat keepers. It impressively addresses the data needs of both meat and dairy producers, whose goals in many ways are quite different, and it's awesome to be able to suggest new functions knowing that I don't have to explain why they would be useful! Also if there is ever a problem or issue of any kind, cust support is incredibly prompt and helpful with resolving it.

Cons: I can't say there are really any "cons", just things that are still a work in progress that I'm really looking forward to seeing added in the future. It will save me a lot of work entering data when EasyKeeper has an intuitive link to DHIR records. And I'd like to see dedicated space for Linear Appraisal information. But there is really nothing to dislike about the software.

Overall: Excellent record keeping for a dairy goat farm.

Pros: Our dairy farm has been using EasyKeeper for a couple years now, and I really only have good things to say about it. It's very easy to use, with excellent customer service anytime help is needed.

Cons: I honestly can't think of anything. The price may be cost-prohibitive for smaller farms, but for larger like ours it is more than fair for what it provides us.

Overall: Excellent

Kristina, thank you for review and for being such a great contributor to EasyKeeper's product development direction. Your willingness to make suggestions and follow up with in-depth discovery is invaluable. Having engaged customers such as yourself is what helps us stay on track with the features that are actually needed by the industry - not the ones we *think* are needed ; )

Comments: I run a herd of Boer goats. On average I have 95 to over 100 head throughout the year. I used to keep all of my records in notebooks. As you can imagine that became very cumbersome and when I needed to refer back to information, it was a paper nightmare! Since switching to EasyKeeper, my records are easy to recover. I am able to print out a goat's complete health record to hand over to the new owner. I can refer back to breeding/kidding histories in just a couple of seconds. And I cannot say enough about the support! Jean is one of the nicest persons I have had the pleasure to deal with since becoming a goat breeder. She is always willing to listen to suggestions that I feel would help streamline the program even more. I have now started using the program on my phone which is so helpful when I am noting estrus/breeding/kidding/health signs that I need to watch. No more putting myself down for a pen and paper or trying to remember everything so I can write it once I got into the house. I see something and I can immediately put a note on the goat's profile. Thank you to our rep and EasyKeeper for making my life easier!!!!!!!

Comments: Pros: Easy to use. I can use this to track all my goats health, milk records status.

Cons: Need more specialized input. I have 40 goats but the program recognizes 75. I have frozen bucks and boarders they need separate status. It needs to reflect my herd better. I need a place to put micron counts and fleece weights so I can track production and compare it to parents and progeny.

Vendor Response

by EasyKeeper Herd Manager on March 25, 2016

Hello Barbara, thanks for posting your review!

Using EasyKeeper's Status feature to maintain each animal's current status will ensure your reports accurately reflect the number of animals in your barn.

There are several different Status types, including:
* Owned, and physically present in the herd
* Owned, and Leased Out or Boarded Out
* Leased In (Owned by someone else)
* Boarded In (Owned by someone else)
* Previously Leased In or Boarded In, and Returned to owner
* Sold
* Deceased
* Culled (Sold or destroyed)

Animals that you do not own but are bred to animals you own, are boarding or leasing are stored in your herd's data for easy reference and applicable reporting, but not reflected in herd head counts.

Fiber production tracking is a planned addition to the service.

Love, love, love easykeeper. User friendly, excellent support. Dependable.

Pros: Customer support, responsiveness to feedback and user needs. Makes management much easier. Can use in the barn from phone or laptop or tablet.

Cons: Nothing. I enjoy using it. I have no complaints. My only suggestion for possible improvement would be to streamline some of the features.

Comments: I really enjoy the ease of using this program for my herd management. The format is well thought out for use with goats- I use it to keep record for both my dairy and Boer herds. Sometimes doing the data entry can be tedious when recording treatment on a large group of animals, but the ability to set reminders makes it easier to enter the next time around. I find it especially helpful to have all of the health and breeding information available in a convenient format to select and print to give to my customers when they purchase or lease an animal. New features are frequently added and are member driven with excellent reception when you give feedback and fantastic customer service contact from the developer. I highly recommend this service to anyone that owns more than just a couple of goats!

Michelle, I hope you've found the batch entry feature for treatments and other health management activities that was released in July 2017 to helpful in relieving the tedium of
entering large amounts of data! If you have any questions about this new feature, please visit the EasyKeeper features page and view the feature demo: https://www.easykeeper.com/features/

Comments: I tried several herd software products trying to find one that allowed a variety of herd situations and was usable for my small operation. This software did everything I asked of it and was easy to use. No special training or long hours trying to find my information, or putting information into the system. They continue to add additional features that improve the program and keep more information at my fingertips.

Great Herd Software.

Comments: EasyKeeper is incredibly easy to use and set up. I have a small herd so I don't have a lot of tasks to keep track of....but the ones I do want to track the software make it effortless. Then to top it all off they send a handy email reminding you when you have herd related tasks that need to be completed!

Also, they listen you their users and are always adding additional requested features.

Comments: Helps me keep track of medical records for all goats. Also stores genetic information for my herd making breeding and kidding easier. Milk records are easy to enter, and reports are easy to understand, and simple to read now I can easily see who is producing the most milk. EasyKeeper software is the easiest to use that I have found.

Comments: We have been using Easy Keeper since its early days. They have created changes with care and have always put the goat farmers first. They ask us what additional tools we would like to have and then go to work developing them. Oh, and Jean actually has goat raising history, and, she is a Veteran.
