Canadian Simmental Association

Canadian Simmental Association

As a registered plan CattleMax customer and member of the Canadian Simmental Association, you can save yourself time and effort by using the following features.  

  • Import your breed association cattle records into CattleMax
  • Sync the association data with your animals in CattleMax who have matching registration numbers
  • Register your calves with the association after adding the calf to CattleMax

The Herd Inventory file or Herd Extract is a copy of your active registered cattle records, 3 generation pedigrees, current EPDs, and current performance information as previously submitted to the association. 

Important Items to Note:

  • If importing records, please wait until the import process is complete before entering any records into your CattleMax Online account.
  • Do not open any files from the association prior to importing them into CattleMax as this will likely lead to information being imported incorrectly.  If you have opened it, please re-download the file and start the process again with the re-downloaded file.
  • If you are not able to see the option for entering a registration number on an individual animal, please update your account settings. (Customizing CattleMax / Account Settings - click here.)
