Herd Management Made Easy

Herd WORKS software lets you easily create and manage an extensive database of valuable alpaca information.   The application focuses on specific areas related to Alpaca herd management practices. Herd management, health management and reproduction management highlight the main functions of the application. Additional features provide producers with the ability to add alpaca photos, link to documents, maintain show records, record fiber histogram data and keep financial records and much more.

Herd WORKS was created by an alpaca breeder and used extensively to manage the Heritage Farm Suri herd before being offered to other like-minded alpaca breeders.  Read on to see how Alpaca Herd WORKS stands apart from other herd management software.

iPACA for iPhone & iPad 

We are pleased to announce that an iPhone version of Alpaca Herd WORKS called iPACATM is now available in version 2.0.   This new feature will add mobility to your herd management tasks.  Alpaca Herd WORKS allows you to create group procedures and print work sheets to take to the barn to record weights and medications given.  iPACATM will allow you to bypass the worksheets and and enter the data directly into your iPhone or iPod Touch.  Then, simply upload  the data files from your iPhone to your home computer via iTunes and all the data is transferred!  I think you will agree that this has the potential to make you record keeping even easier! 


While there are several other good herd management software programs available,  Herd WORKS offers features that set it apart from the rest:

  • AHW was the first herd management software to allow you to download of all your alpacas and ARI data from the Alpaca Registry website - no need to type each alpaca into the database!

  • Pleasing Graphical Interface - easy to navigate and screens look great!

  • Unlimited Document and Photo storage

  • Group Procedures - a function that allows you to easily record procedures on multiple alpacas with a few clicks

  • Weight Graphs - lets you monitor weight gains (or losses) at a glance. Plus, reports that summarize birth, weaning and 1-year weights of crias produce by your dams.

  • Breeding Planner - lets you create a breeding plan and study "what if" scenarios.

  • Feature-packed Contact database including an integrated web browser that allow you to instantly look at a Google map of the contact and the local weather at the contact's address.

  • Extensive Calendar Module - schedule events, create to-do lists, manage projects and maintain a farm journal.
