Back in August, we announced the next-generation version of CattleMax called CattleMax Online. After a customer beta program involving our survey respondents, CattleMax Online was quietly launched in November. In just a few short months, commercial and registered ranches from 10 head to thousands, from Texas to New Zealand, have signed up for CattleMax Online.
Today, we are “opening the gates” and are announcing CattleMax Online in our CattleMax Newsletter that goes to 21,000 cattle ranchers a month. Why the delay? We wanted to let a small group of ranchers work with it for a few months to address feedback and comments from a smaller group.
How is CattleMax Online different?
CattleMax Online has addressed many popular areas in previous versions of CattleMax and taken them to the next level in terms of power and ease of use.
- New Smart Groups automatically add/remove cattle based on criteria
- Integrated breeding, pregnancy check, and calving screens
- Inline Herd Update so you can update cattle right from the cattle list screen
- Unified reporting so you can customize columns, create new reports, and export to CSV & PDF from a single Reports area.
- Enhanced Pasture screen to know which cattle are in a specific pasture and when they were moved to that pasture
- Accessible from any Internet-connected device PC, Mac, Netbook, smartphone… you name it
- Mobile-optimized version for entering data in the pastures or on-the-go
- And much more…
CattleMax Online has a simple pricing structure – a single monthly fee starting at $12 per ranch. No more upgrades to buy, no additional license fees to use on multiple computers, and no online backup subscriptions to share & backup data.

Where CattleMax Online is headed
Going forward, all development resources are being focused on CattleMax Online. We are actively updating CattleMax Online each week based on feedback and suggestions from customers (and all those updates are automatically applied to your account at no charge).
What happens to CattleMax CS?
CattleMax Online is the latest version of CattleMax and is the successor to CattleMax CS. Going forward, new features and enhancements will only be made to CattleMax Online. For now, we will offer both CattleMax Online and CattleMax CS. However, we will eventually move to only selling and supporting CattleMax Online.
