Ranch Manager Software Testimonials

 

Ranch Manager: Cattle Software Testimonials

 

After years of looking for the right software to manage our herd, both for ease of use and affordability I came across Lion Edge Technologies.  In the fall of 2006 I purchased the Ranch manager Cattle Edition for my PC and instantly loved it.  I am fair at best running the computer and the programs on it but this was a breeze.  At first getting the herd set up I  needed to call tech support for help and with questions and I was surprised at how quickly they responded and how quickly they helped me get our herd set up. I entered all of our current herd and then when spring came with calving time I used it to enter all our new calves and wow, with such ease. 

 

I couldn't wait for the Pocket Edition to come out.  Just today I received it in the mail and wow again, it is great.  I needed an extra feature to search for tag numbers and talked to Wayne and he told me he would email me in a couple of hours with what I needed.  I got the email an hour later with the change I needed and this is awesome.  One of the big problems we have with our Hereford Herd is they lose the Plastic ear tags.  When we get together to re-tag the cows it’s pretty stressful.  If you can image this is a 3 generation operation (need I say more) and all three have notes and different ways to search for the information to figure out which cow she is and to properly re-tag her.  We have a steel tag and a state steel tag and sometimes another steel tag, all I have to do with the Pocket Edition is search any of the tag numbers and instantly there is all the information on my Palm about that cow and we can quickly make up a new Plastic tag, tag her and move her on through.  I am looking forward to springtime when I can enter data in the field on my Palm after tagging newborn calves and then come back to my PC and HotSync. 

 

Thanks again for such great software and service.  Please feel free to use as you wish.   THANK YOU!!

Over the years, we have looked for software to assist us with our Registered Charolais Farm. We looked at all the big software companies that were just too expensive and even at one point purchased a small software program from a company that made a lot of promises - promises they were too busy going to fairs to sell the program to keep. It was a lucky day for us when I ran up on an advertisement for Lion Edge Technologies' Ranch Manager. This software has performed without any problems, solved our record keeping problems especially on our performance data for the Charolais Association and is now giving us more knowledge about our cattle herd such as the actual gestation after AI on each cow. The staff at Lion Edge is there to help and whether it is a minor question on the operating of the software or a major change that is needed for our operation they respond fast and efficiently. We want to thank everyone at Lion Edge for the great job and would recommend the software to anyone in the livestock industry!! You can't buy better livestock software!!

You know, the more time I spend with Ranch Manager, the more I love it! I've just spent an entire week importing animals (I thought it might be a good way to double check our records against the American Hereford Association's and vice-versa....glad I did!) and now have over 1000 active and "Unmanaged" animals in the program. Just thought you might like to know I'm one extremely happy customer. After spending almost a year testing every Cow/Calf program on the market, we will now be using Ranch Manager to track both our Miniature Hereford and Classic Hereford herds. Your pedigree and offspring tracking capabilities are the best I've found, and are a definite asset to any purebred cattle breeder.

Definitely looking forward to the Handheld Edition!

Dear Lion Edge,

Having researched and tried other cattle management programs for my sister's registered Simmental herd, I was very pleased to "discover" Ranch Manager Cattle Edition!  You have created software which beautifully fits the needs of small, purebred operations, such as my sister's and many other farms in our state/region.

I don’t usually write testimonials for products, but in your case I felt I needed to. I purchased another program a few years ago…I thought it was great at the time. But when I purchased a new computer with Vista I found my old program would not work. So I began to look for something that would work on my new computer. Luckily I found your website. I tried your demo version and was very impressed. I could not believe how outdated and time consuming the other program was. I am very pleased with how easy it is to enter information, with my old program I had to enter the information to each individual animal, with your program adding information to multiple animals at once is so much easier, no more sitting for hours entering the same information over and over again. The calendar and journal are great, so easy to keep and find information, no more flipping through a book to find information. The “How Do I” section is very user friendly. Your customer service is absolutely the best…. What a surprise it was when I e-mailed a question to you and in no time at all you called me and talked me through what I was trying to do. I can’t say enough about your program and your support….. I would highly recommend this program to any raising goats.

Just want to say how happy I am with your program, it has been an enormous help in keeping our records straight and providing information in an instant. And most important...your customer support is SUPERB!!!! I actually had purchased a different program a few weeks before I found this one and it was horrible and the customer support was terrible. I am so glad I found this program as it is very user friendly and as I mentioned before when I have had questions you were right on it with simple explanations and directions on how to get them worked out! Thank you so much!

We have been raising livestock for over thirty five years and keeping track of them has been a nightmare at times, especially if you want to keep good detailed records. When we were raising equine we tried several different programs but were never satisfied either the program did not cover all the areas or it was not user friendly. As we diversified our livestock program into the Boer goats this magnified the problem of good record keeping since our herd of fifty equine decreased and our goat herd increased to almost 200 head. With Lion Edge Technologies’ Ranch Manager has been the solution we have been seeking for years. The Goat Ranch Manager software is very user friendly and covers many more areas, from buck, doe and kid records that include everything on their registration as well as the pedigree, to veterinarian and health management, to income, expenses to feed, pictures of the goats to brands used by breeders… This is a superior software program that any livestock owner should own! We highly recommend this exceptional software tool and thankful for the knowledge shared through the Lion Edge Technologies.

Hello,

I raise Nigerian Dairy Goats and cannot tell you how much I love your program. I am not computer smart so I wanted a program that I could understand and use. I received many demos from other company's but they didn't do what I wanted, then I received yours! It has got to be the best I have seen. It is easy and it has everything I expected (and more) out of a program. When I do come crossed a problem all I have to do is call or a-mail and I get help right away. Your customer service is beyond believe , I can’t say enough about your product .If you have any customers unsure they can e-mail me I will be glad to tell them. I can’t tell you enough how much time your program has saved me.

Goat Ranch Manager is one of the best software packages I have ever purchased!  The program is reasonably easy to use and very well organized.  It has fields for almost everything you would want to keep track of.  But what is absolutely exceptional about this program is the customer support.  In all my years of working with computers, I have never found customer service that can even come close to what I have received with this program.  Not only do they provide excellent help, they actually work to solve problems and add needed fields to their database making it an exceptionally flexible and useable tool for the serious goat rancher with any size of operation.

Ranch Manager: Sheep Software Testimonials

Hi, thanks, I'm excited to use it. I am a software engineer, and was impressed with the product. I am just starting my sheep flock, and it took me a while to find a program that met most of my needs, yours was by far the best that I found. I evaluated trial versions of three other products as well.

 

It already has provided use, in that it helped me uncover some potential inbreeding I'd face in the near future with my flock, things that would have been hard to notice by staring at a bunch of pedigrees with long ear tag numbers! I was questioning whether I needed software in my first few years, but obviously I do, as I had not spotted these pedigree issues visually!

 

Thanks again,

Ranch Manager: Equine Software Testimonials

I had bought your Equine edition at the end of last week for both the PC and the PDA and I have been impressed with the software.  It took me a lot of the weekend to get my data on there (and I still have some left to go), but I did have one question with regard to the PDA software.  I do realize that it is a companion software and not a standalone one, but I didn't think it would hurt to ask.  The only thing that I wished the PDA software had was the Income/Expense module as I know I would be using that quite a bit when I'm at the horse shows.  Is that possible for a future update?  Thanks for the help, keep up with the great software.

Geraldine Chapman wrote on her website, this review of our Equine software.

http://www.horseyard.com.au/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=115081&Itemid=144 Geraldine is a current customer:

In Spring last year I went looking for a software package that would let me keep track of all the horses coming and going from my property in the upcoming breeding season.

From previous experience I knew that it can be very useful to record every event that happens with a particular horse and sometimes even more useful is to be able to keep a diary. I also like to record as much of the horse’s individual details as possible, keep the owner contact details, and add photos. Essentially I wanted a program to do it all.

Some serious googling later and I narrowed my choice down to just one – Ranch Manager Equine created by Lion Edge Technologies in the US.

The software was actually developed by the owners to help them to manage their own cattle ranch and it developed from there. There are now seven versions – Cattle, Sheep, Goats, Equine, Camelid, Livestock and Wildlife and each database can manage up to around 15,000 entries.

Back to the Equine version though.

Ranch Manager, over the breeding season, has turned out to be everything I want or need for an Equine ‘herd’ management database. I’m able to keep accurate records on all horses coming and going from the property, and can even keep outside mares in a separate database so that they don’t get mixed in with my own horses.

I’ve been able to record when horses have been seen by the farrier, scanned by the vet, bred, wormed, changed diet, and keep detailed notes with each record so that if anything unusual happens I have a record to recall. Or, as I found out last year, when an owner rings me and say “Hey, do remember the date when ....”

We keep five regular horses at our property and RM is great just for keeping track of vaccines, wormers, farrier, and changes in diet and vet treatments. It is also possible to keep a journal, say, if you have a pregnant mare and want to record her progress, or a rescue horse you are rehabilitating, or a youngster you are bringing on.

The package actually has a huge amount of very useful and practical features but what I like most is that it is:

a/ easy to use
b/ lets me keep all my horses organised and in one place
c/ allows me to record all the details I want to keep in one place
d/ You can get a trial versions first and once you find it is totally invaluable purchase and download the license key
e/ is very reasonably priced at just under $100 US

Features include:
• Detailed Horse Records
• Keep detailed notes about each horse in your operation
• ID Tracking
• Show Records
• Multiple Views of your Herd
• Pedigree editor
• Event Tracking
• Gestation history
• Breeding Planner
• Inbreeding Detection
• Breed Records
• Rancher’s Calendar
• Rancher’s Journal
• Sales Tracking and Reporting
• Intelligent Use of Hover Text & Context Sensitive Help

There’s also a pocket edition – good for people who want to record details on their PDA as they are out and about on their property.

noneRanch Manager was recently released version two which has some useful additions like spaces for recording microchips, brands, multiple registrations and for keeping multiple photos of a horse. The developers are constantly making changes and additions so you can expect to see even more useful features in the future.

Ranch Manager takes a lot of the guess work out of managing horses; you won’t be scratching your head trying to remember exactly when their teeth were done, what wormer you used last, or who is due for vaccinations.

I use this program every day and have to say I would be pretty much lost without it!

Highly recommended! Visit Ranch Manager www.lionedge.com

Zonkers Farm uses the Ranch Manager Camelid Edition for management of our alpaca herd.  We trialed many different software packages and found Ranch Manager to be logically organized and easy to understand.  Additionally, and very importantly for us, the developers are very responsive to our feedback for desired enhancements as well as repair of an occasional bug.  We look forward to the additional functionalities that are promised in the near future, but for now, it is working well for us.  It is the closest thing we’ve encountered to our ideal, without writing it ourselves!

Ranch Manager: Livestock Software Testimonials (Combination of above Livestock products)

WE'RE SOLD!!!!!!!  You guys have a great program!  It is simple to enter information and yet a lot of information can be found easily!   We haven't found all of the reports yet, but still working on that.  Can see we have a ton more info that we could and probably will try to put in.  The support is AMAZING!!!!!!!  I work away from home as the bookkeeper for 2 school districts.  My only time is Sat. and you guys have been RIGHT THERE.  Now, if I could only get my accounting support for the schools to be half that efficient!  :-)

 

How would you like paid?  Do you want a money order mailed to you or do you want a credit card?  Let me know and I will get back to you tomorrow.

 

Thank you very much.  We are very impressed!

Darla McCleary

 

We have tried a couple others, and this one is still the easiest and yet get so much information in.  We are custom lamb feeders also so, therefore, I looked at your Sheep Software.  Looks like it will be as easy and efficient as the cattle program if a person has ewes.  Congrats on a great program!

Darla is using the Livestock Edition software for her Cattle and Sheep.  Ron and Darla have been customers since 2005.

I understand that you would like to know more about Ranch Manager from a user. Here I will try to introduce it to you, although I am not sure what you might want to know.

 

I compared Ranch Manager with other Livestock software programs.  Ranch Manager distinguished itself from the others because:

 

1. I found it easier and more pleasant to use

2. In the main page of "Animal ID" you have space for your main, most important information and you have plenty of space for notes or comments that you might want to have on the spot, first sight. You can store plenty of other information in the well organized following pages/tabs. Easy offspring and pedigree information, history of any event, what feed you use ...not only is the program complete and flexible, you can have all the information in front of you without scrolling with the mouse or look for it.

3. You have plenty of space to write about your land or pastures. I can keep track of what I plant, what kind of fertilizer I use, etc. No other program has such a well organized section and can gather so much information about pastures and land, corrals, you name it. I have an exotic deer/antelope operation, as well as a cattle operation. I grow my own hay. I can enter information about each deer pasture, what animals are in, what they are eating, and how well (hopefully) they are doing. Same for my hay patches. I can write how much money I am spending on what pasture and I can check if it was worthy or not.

4. Breed: I can add my breed. Again, this program is great for flexibility ... other programs would not let me add or modify breed names and specifications. I could not add "Red Deer." Now I am using the program (that is for cattle) for my deer and they at Lion Edge are wrapping up as we speak a new version just for the deer. Exceedingly helpful is the breed performance section. I can understand better how I am doing and how my animals are doing when I see it in a draw. But that's just me, of course.

5. Schedule/Journal: It is very helpful and it allows you to have your month at a glance and it has plenty of space for activities, reminders, and diary.  I used to have my calendar/palm pilot for all the activities, rain, etc. Today I turn on a single program to check at a glance from my animals' records to rain amounts, from scheduled veterinary services, to reminders, all in one spot, easy to use, and flexible enough to accommodate my needs.

6. The help section is fantastic. Just this morning I could not remember how to edit weaning dates for my red deer (I am also a new customer) and I was considering calling Lion Edge when I went to the help program and I figured it out in seconds.

 

The thing that what I like even better about Ranch Manager is the customer service and the people behind the product. I had problems downloading the trial version: they were very kind and they resolved it in minutes. Because I raise different species than cattle (Red Deer and Oryx), they are introducing a deer version of the program to accommodate my specific needs so that I can keep track of antlers and horns development, for example. I asked for a section for premises ID numbers and general Animal ID numbers, and it came. Every time I need something more or I feel that something could be better, an update comes in matter of weeks at the most. They are a friendly voice that you can find any time you need anything. Furthermore, their will and ability to modify the program to help you out makes the program perfect ... where do you find a similar service? And free of charge??

 

It is very hard to talk about the negatives of Ranch Manager since they are doing their best to eliminate any negative aspect of it.  At Lion Edge they promised to work on technology as it becomes available, and with their past record, I know that they will keep their word.  Ranch Manager offers all the above for a better price than the competitors. I like that, too!

 

I hope that what I wrote was helpful ... This is my third program for animals that I have used and, personally, I just love it! Of course, software is a very personal matter, too. I highly recommend you to try it.  Please feel free to contact me if you have further questions and ... Good Luck!

Sharyle uses the Ranch Manager: Livestock Edition Software for Goats and Sheep.  She has been a customer since 2007.

 

I feel that for the price, that Ranch Manager is far better value at less than 1/2 the cost. Other Sheep programs I’ve tried do not seem to be up to date right now.

 

My only disappointment is that I did not come across Ranch Manager first.

 

That is my opinion. Talk to you soon
