We’ve had a few people email us asking which alpaca herd management software we use so I thought I would pass some information along to anyone interested. We’ve been using which I think is the best alpaca management program out there… AlpacaEASE also known as HerdEASE. We started with this software a little over a year ago and I have to say I absolutely love it!

I was amazed at how easy AlpacaEASE is to use and the setup was a breeze compared to the other alpaca software programs out there. I’m extremely impressed with the way this program is written. The program is all contained in one folder so doing backups is very easy. I’ve included a few screen shots to give you some insight into the program.

One of the best features of this alpaca herd management software is that it is very user friendly. I was able to extract my herd and ancestry data directly from the alpaca registry’s website… saving me valuable time. Also when a cria is born it updates everything for the sire and dam as well.

Another one of my favorite things about this herd management software is that I can compare the sire’s pedigree side by side with the female’s pedigree. We have over 100 alpacas so this feature has been very valuable and time saving. It also has great photo management that stores up to 10 pictures plus captions. You can also store documents i.e. ARI certificate, histograms, contracts, etc.

Reports are a snap. There are many animal-specific reports that can be run directly from the animal’s herd screen; medical history, current breeding detail and breeding history, fiber, shows, procedures due, etc. There is also financial and invoicing as well. Plus a contact list for all of your customers and so much more.

The program was written by computer professional Ellen Gurewitz. She has over 30 years experience in database design and programming. She continually upgrades and improves the program through the year. Customer support is very important and I am happy to say it is exceptional!

I copied this from the website because this says it all…
Q. Why is AlpacaEASE/HerdEASE recommended over any other herd management programs?
A. AlpacaEASE was developed by a professional computer programmer in consultation with established alpaca breeders, and thoroughly tested by both new and experienced breeders. We provide outstanding support and continually enhance AlpacaEASE/HerdEASE to be sure you get the best management software for all your needs. We are continually expanding and improving AlpacaEASE/HerdEASE and v5 is the latest result. We strive to keep current with the industry and to provide you with the easiest and most comprehensive herd management program! 

This alpaca software does so much that I’m not able to include everything it does here. However, you can download a 30 day free trial copy at the website at AlpacaEASE. I don’t get any kickbacks… but I do know quality when I see it and I thought I would share it with everyone. Give it a try, it makes raising alpacas so much easier. Less paper work means more time with the alpacas!
