Webinar

Outcross Systems is proud to partner with Herefords Australia to deliver a webinar on Wednesday November 15 at 7.30pm NSW time.
The webinar will be focusing on the importance of collecting accurate, individual animal performance data in your operation using Stockbook software.
Our Sales Consultant, Rob Powell, will explain how and why you need to collect this data, and how Stockbook helps you manage genetic performance, fertility, weight gain and other lifetime performance measures so you can identify all levels of improved herd performance and comply with industry standards.
He will also go through the process of collecting DNA samples and processing these to and from the lab and then on to Herefords Australia for registration. Finally he will touch on the power of filtering data and producing accurate reports that are invaluable for decision making in your business.
Rob has a wealth of experience, growing up on his family farm in Coolah and working across both the sheep and cattle industries. Rob has been helping Stockbook clients with their data management for over 13 years and is known and appreciated for going ‘above and beyond’ for his customers.

Mandatory EID for sheep producers is set for 1 January 2025

Outcross Systems have been involved with Sheep EIDs for several years, helping to trial software and hardware solutions for the Victorian introduction back in 2017 and tweaking the systems used to manage and process the data.
Other governments have recently announced the 1st of January 2025 as the date for mandatory Sheep EID, meaning that in just over two years, there will be a mandatory requirement to capture and record sheep movements through EID with the NLIS.
Stockbook, our producer software, can capture, record, store and report on animal movements with the NLIS anywhere on the farm.
Our saleyard and agent products, including Stockyard & SaleyardLE, are used in many saleyards and agent offices throughout Australia, including Hamilton Regional Livestock Exchange which puts over 1,000,000 sheep through their saleyards annually.
Our Saleyard systems have been perfected for Sheep EID, benefiting from years of feedback from experienced agents to be able to fit any saleyard process.
If you have questions about the introduction of Sheep EID and need a Saleyard, Agency or Producer software platform to handle it, get in touch with us today.
