RECORD KEEPING FORMS
This record keeping system and forms are copyrighted and are made available for private/individual use only.

Over the last 18+ years, we have looked at many computer-based, herd management, record keeping systems available on the market. We found they were excellent for recording information/data but were ineffective to use in an emergency decision making situation and were very cumbersome to use as a management tool to aid in diagnosis. The main problem we found was that the systems were basically set up to archive data but do not facilitate retrieving pertinent information in a comprehensive format to facilitate medical decision making.
Cindy’s background as a critical care RN helped devise the following forms. These forms provide a quick retrieval of information without the need of reading through line items of a report. Plus they eliminates the need for dual entries (jotting info onto a piece of paper in the barn and then transferring those notes into your computer when you get into the office).
