A newbie needs help!!!!<br>We have been using Excel for bookkeeping, but would like to have a system more suited for a small herd. Is Quicken or Quickbooks okay? Is there something made especially for cattle farms?<br>

I use Quicken Basic and it works fine. You just have to put your own categories in: like feed, seeds, fuel, etc. for expenses and then you can divide up your income into different categories too. You can split up every check you write as fine as you want, if you want to list every nut and bolt you buy you can. You can set up several different accounts too such as checking, money market, credit card, cash or savings accounts and you can transfer money from one account to the other, like from a money market account to a checking account or visa versa, of coarse you have to actually call the bank to transfer the funds but you can do it on your computer first so you know how much to transfer. <p>There are special programs for farms but in my opinion they are way too expensive.

You may wish to explore "The QuickBooks Farm Accounting Cookbook" via http://www.goflagship.com. <br>800-545-5380. Quicken book also available.<p>Though I am only a new user, I have found this book to be quite useful & especially helpful in identifying accounts I had not thought of but needed.<br>p.s. Also helpful when one is not a QB guru - me!<br>
