Keeping track of your goats

Register all data for every goat, including date of birth, registration number, name, title, parents, offspring and characteristics. This information allows you to track unlimited bloodlines. Add a picture to compliment your description. You can also store specific information about each goat, such as a medical files, show results and much more. This is the basic information required for every responsible goat breeder.

 

Create a pedigree

Once you’ve added multiple generations, you can easily create pedigrees. The pedigree shows multiple generations of animals. You can choose which information the pedigree should show, such as the animal’s names, genders, dates of birth and inbreeding percentages. This way you can easily see which ancestors cause inbreeding. Customize your pedigree with a layout that suits your association or breeding club. Add a logo and create a professional pedigree that you can give to new owners of your goats.

 

Breeding and health

Geiten 2Healthy goats are essential for every breeder. Good health means stronger goats, more milk healthy offspring and above all: happy goats. Keep a personal medical file for each goat. Make notes about vet visits, deworming and genetic disorders. If a goats need a special diet, you can make notes about this too. You can also upload reports and medical files for each individual goat. This helps you to keep track of the health of every single goat and give them the best care available. Also analyze health data of your herd and keep track of the individual progress of each goat.

 

Prevent inbreeding

Prevent inbreeding of your goats by keeping accurate records. ZooEasy software calculates the inbreeding coefficient of every newborn goat automatically. Calculate the inbreeding and relationship percentages before you start breeding. Select a breeding pair and create a trial pedigree. You can even make a relationship matrix to see the relation between selected bucks and does. The more animals you add to your administration, the more accurate the numbers come. This will help you to choose the right breeding pairs. The method of calculation is provided by Wageningen University and Research Center (WUR) from the Netherlands, using the calculation method of Wright.

 

Shows and contacts

WedstrijdregistratieOur software offers more features to keep up with your goat administration. For example, register all your contacts, such as other breeders, the vet, goat feeders and others involved with your goat breeding. Do you need a phone number? Just search for the one you need and you’ll have all the contact info at hand.

Do you take your goats to shows, contests and exhibitions? Make notes of each result and upload the judge’s reports. Now you can keep all information about your goats in just one central database.

 

ZooEasy for goat associations

GoatZooEasy is also available for two or more breeders who want to share one single database. Several goat associations, clubs, and societies use ZooEasy. The program allows you to log in to one and the same database with multiple people. The board can decide which information is accessible for members and which information can only be seen by members of the board or commission members. That makes it easy to keep control of privacy sensitive information. Members with a breeder account, for example, can only adjust their own animals in the database. Members with a reader account will only be able to see certain information and can create a trial pedigree to make responsible choices for the next breeding rounds.

As a plus to the comprehensive basis of the software, associations can also order extra modules and services. We give extra courses to managers, can import your current database or help with customized projects for breeding and registering goats.
