Turnkey brings feedlot management, technology together
Turnkey Computer Systems demonstrated three innovative solutions for feedlot operations at the 2016 NCBA Annual Meeting and Trade Show Jan. 27-29, 2016.
“Turnkey’s applications and systems help cattlemen track more than 10 million head of cattle per year in 18 states and throughout Canada,” said John Adent, CEO of Turnkey’s parent company Animal Health International. “Turnkey automates virtually every aspect of feedlot management and gives cattle operators real-time, actionable information.”
Turnkey’s Feedyard Accounting and Management System (FAMS) software allows feedlot operators to manage virtually every cattle inventory activity, including receiving, shipments, movements and deads, across multiple users, yards and companies. FAMS is the source for all input and commodity activity, including contracting, receiving, ration formulation, commodity costing and billing.
Turnkey will also feature its Animal Management Studio (AMS). AMS is a software solution that allows for individual animal health monitoring, feed bunk management and feed truck management throughout the feedyard production cycle. AMS records health treatments and provides medication withdrawal notification. It also manages ration ingredient loading, driver pen delivery and feeding status and pen notifications delivered real-time via GPS.
The third software solution Turnkey will demonstrate is the FY3000, a feed yard accounting solution that provides feedlot and commodity management data across multiple locations, ranches and pastures. FY3000 monitors data on cattle, grain and commodity inventory and creates invoices. It updates operators and managers on all feedlot accounting activities.
Turnkey Computer Systems is part of Animal Health International, the largest animal health products, services and technologies company in North America, representing and distributing products for more than 1,000 manufacturers in the companion and production animal industries, including equine, beef and dairy cattle, poultry and swine.
