Stud producers, like us at Nerstane, who do a lot with progeny testing and EBVs, could definitely get a lot out of Stockbook. It is user-friendly and reliable. Not only does it make it easy to collect data professionally but you can also access detailed reports at the flick of a button: that’s what it is all about.
Transferring from Woolpak to Stockbook hasn’t been without difficulties, however having a local company and a good support team willing to help makes a huge difference.
Practical Systems transferred all my data from Woolpak into Stockbook so the only difference between the software is that I have to learn a new program.
The support team at Practical Systems has been very helpful and I hope it continues that way. There haven’t been any improvements to my business yet as it is still early days, but I definitely hope that it will in the future, especially when I am able to generate all the reports I would like.
