Pros: Nothing

Cons: #1 problem.. Very hard to use
#2 Poor and expensive customer support
And much much more!

Overall: Formulas are wrong and numbers conflict with each other through the whole program. Can't use Breakeven for break evens because it doesn't take all fees or revenues into account. Financial position report is also useless for break evens because it divides numbers first and adds them back. Program was expensive. A huge amount for 3 months customer support. Anytime you need help after that you must pay an additional amount for another 3 months. And everyone in the customer service department is condescending. Did I mention the whole program as a whole is NOT USER FRIENDLY. There was a flaw in our program that a formula was set wrong in our version. To update that would cost an additional amount... Many problems and customer support unwilling to help... If you are in the business of feeding cattle for fun with no concern for accurate records or making money and want to eventually do everything long-hand in the end anyway then this might work for you. Very upset and I do not recommend this program. Would tell more but review doesn't allow enough characters. Happy to tell you more about my bad experiences.

Recommendations to other buyers: Don't bother. Their favorite line is, "This program has been around over 30 years!" Well that's because no competition existed then and the age of the program shows.

The formulas for breakeven (and throughout the program) are industry standard. Our numbers would match any feedlot accounting software out there. The customer wanted a custom breakeven formula they developed and used. This is not a problem at all and we gladly provided them with a custom report that used their formula. Our program comes with 90 days of FREE customer support. After the 90 days, there is a fee for yearly customer support. This fee is also the LOWEST in the industry, by ALOT. This customer is still using our software to date and is very happy with the software.

Pro Feeder is the best software available. I've tried them all.

Comments: No pros, just cons. This program is no where close to being user friendly. The apps are not ready and the list goes on and on.
