Cowculator M5 PC Software

Cowculator M5 automatically collects and evaluates data from every animal, allowing you to manage your animals with the most up to date information.

It provides complete animal milking and feeding records, helping you to make the best management decisions. Historical data is available for individual animals allowing you to monitor lifetime lactation performance.

The innovative cow calendar allows you to easily check each cows position in the lactation cycle and highlight which cows are not performing.

The software can be used with cows, sheep and goats.
