The Enterprise and Mid-Tier Enterprise versions of PAM QA Plus are used by corporate farming enterprises in countries as diverse as Sudan, South Africa, New Zealand, Brazil, Russia and Ethiopia. 

The History

Development of PAM started in 1988. PAM 1.0 was released in the spring of 1989 and was an instant success in the mixed farming areas of Australia.

With the assistance of the School of Agriculture, University of Western Australia, the livestock section of PAM was enhanced significantly in 1989-1990 and has been improved over the 20+ years since to become  "the best herd management software in the world", according to a Danish company we are working with in Eastern Europe. 

As the 1990's progressed, PAM was adapted to suit operations across Australia, New Zealand and South Africa. The PAM UltraCrop and Viticulture versions were 'split off' from the original version in the late 1990's. Today, PAM is used in every corner of the world.

Paddock records are difficult to keep manually and almost impossible to analyse. All farmers know the value of the information that escapes them as a result.  

The power of PAM is the result of over two decades of development. Thousands of clients with diverse needs have provided feedback and suggestions to keep PAM at the cutting edge. PAM just keeps getting more and more powerful, more and more useful

PAM - software for pastoralists



PAM in the Pastoral Areas 

Early in the 1990’s Heytesbury Beef of Western Australia and S Kidman & Co of South Australia bought many copies of PAM to help them better manage their vast pastoral operations. Around the same time PAM was redeveloped with a variety of cattle station features under the careful watch of Australian Agricultural Company's station and head office staff, that are now available to all clients.

Today pastoralists are using PAM and PAM’s Mapping Module to get better control of their operations across the entire breadth of Australia. Many stations in Queensland, South Australia, Western Australia and the NT use PAM’s IAR (Individual Animal Records) Module to keep track of their breeding herds. Both sheep and cattle station operators find PAM invaluable.
